retail therapy

…i must admit has made things easier for me. last Sunday after mass, we went grocery shopping, and filled our cart with stocks of food supplies to last us a couple of weeks. we bought a lot of healthy food and snacks, as well as fruits to munch on when attacked by late evening hunger pangs. i thoroughly enjoyed the chore, to be honest. afterwards, we had dinner at Chili’s to relax and enjoy a delicious meal bordered with a lively, friendly atmosphere.

i guess what they say is true about our bodies releasing endorphins when we shop. when LV called to inform me that my reserved bag has arrived, i felt so excited that i eagerly dragged Ryan to the Mall of the Emirates to pick it up. oh, it was so lovely! the feel of the bag in my hands was indescribable. i was quite pleased ‘cos i’ve waited so long for the bag, and now it’s finally mine!

much coveted LV Epi Alma

i didn’t let the husband leave the store empty handed. in return of his sweet gesture last weekend (and for driving me to the mall at a drop of a hat), i got him this as a ‘no occasion gift’ for simply being a rock solid partner in life that i am enormously thankful for:

hubby's first LV: urban chic Damier Graphite

i’ve dug deep into my wallet for these purchases, but i honestly don’t mind. i vowed that my next major purchase will definitely be mid next year. for now, i’ll just savor my new loots and feel the happy hormones work their way through my body :D

hi gracie,

wow finally dumating na alma mo! uuyy..pls end my curiosity na, so how much nga sa dubai ang alma? (para sumama loob ko! hahaha!)just want to know if mura talaga alma vs dito sa pinas/hk.

lastly, gold ba zipper alma mo? parang gold sa pix eh...sa akin white gold. I was told they don't produce na gold zippers na alma...lahat daw lumalabas white gold na daw. hmmm...

si alma fave bag ko din..for two weeks sya lang gamit ko pang-office! hahaha! (except fridays pala)

wow! congrats!! nakakainggit!! ano ba kaliwa't kanan ang bilihan ng LV ng mga n@wies! hehehehe! :)

Gracie said...

hi jacqui,
yup, finally - dumating na rin! if you convert my bag to Php, mga P61,000. i guess the difference is not much on this bag, but for the rest, i can say cheaper talaga. i think my previous comment sa blog mo didn't go through...may price comparison din yun with the Speedy.
my bag has a silver zip closure. nakabukas lang yung lamp shade so nagmukhang gold sya. di ko na-adjust yung white balance nung camera. i knew magmumukhang gold sya pero tinamad na ko to take another photo...hehe!
i love my bag, too! once ko pa lang nagamit. maybe next week ko na sya gamitin ng todo :)

Gracie said...

thanks you, tinggay! naku, i'm sure meron ka rin from hubby. aba, there's a "labor" gift din dapat, di ba? :)
ang mga n@wies talaga addicted sa LV! LOL!
