So rather than celebrating my birthday (which would have been great given if I had time to do so) I'd much rather stay home and get my life organized and back to normal again.
But despite not celebrating, I did spoil myself in buying some birthday gifts for myself! =D
For my birthday this year, I really wanted to get myself a really nice hand bag with a shoulder strap where you can either hand hold it or wear on your shoulder. I don't have any bags in this particular style and I have been wanting one for a really long time. But instead of buying one bag I actually got 2! XD
The first bag I got is this black one from Aldo. I wanted to get a black and stylish one because it'd be easy to mix and match with my outfits. Plus I love how spacious the bag is that I can fit in all the necessary things that I need to carry in the bag. Not to mention how there are sooo many different compartment storage space that I can neatly organize and put all my things in place so it is easy to find. When it comes to bags, I like ones that come with a lot of storage space for you to separate things in your bag so that you can easily find what you need such as your keys, phone, napkins, etc.
The second one I got is this pink, grey and white one from GUESS. I got it because I simply LOVE the design, colours and the style. It is so chic and it reminds me of a Prada bag. Which I would never have money to buy myself an actual Prada bag. Not that I'd ever need to buy one. This bag was just the perfect one for me! (♥_♥)
Aside from getting 2 new bags. I also got myself a new wallet. I wanted a bigger wallet that has more storage space and easier for me to separate my bills as well as all the cards that I carry. I love the simple yet feminine and chic design of this wallet.
And now you must be wondering how do I get money to buy all these things when I just got back from a big vacation in Japan? Yes, no doubt I am broke from my Japan trip and I am still paying off my credit card at the moment. The reason why I was able to afford all this was because I had gift cards given by my friends for Christmas from 1-2 years ago that I still haven't used it. I needed to use them or else they'd expire soon and what's better than using them to buy myself things when my birthday is coming up? Best excuse ever to spoil and buy myself some nice birthday gifts! =P
I used a Sephora gift card that a friend gave me to buy this eye serum because I am getting old and need to do everything to prevent those fine lines and wrinkles that come with aging. Must do everything I can to prevent aging and staying beautiful and young forever, lol. A friend recommended me to use it because she uses it so I decided to give it a try.
