Errand Friday

I'm still waiting for our Sky cable connection to get fixed, for the meantime I just have to put up with my ultra slow smart bro plug-in connection. So I still can't post the photos from my uncle's wake/burial (I know I too am not a fan of sad endings but I just have to immortalize the event here just for future reference). If our connection picks up later I'll finish posting the rest of the photos and stories. But today, I'm just so proud of myself for not giving in to the call of indolence! Did a lot of things today.

My pending shipments for Archive are now done. Then, I texted Mich if I could order shoes online from Forever 21. She said No, but by the time I got her text I already received my order confirmation. Oops! These babies are just too pretty...


So Miu Miu-esque noh?
I wish I wish I wish this fits perfectly--unlike the other hats.

Since I still have a slight phobia of customs (my shoes from Chic Reward is still there, still unclaimed, haha), I decided to use Pobox instead. Go on, click on the link to learn more about it. All I know is that I can now buy items from the US without asking relatives and friends to include my item in their balikbayan box. I'll let you know if I encounter any problems with them as the order goes along.

So I left the house to go to the post office. My bowler hats finally arrived! But I got disappointed when I discovered that it got deformed. The shipper used a soft packaging box so it got dented. :( It's still wearable though. You must be taller than me to actually see the dent when I'm wearing them. Hehe! I'm still happy I finally have my own bowler hat. Does anyone know how to make them go back to their original state? Help?

Also paid my bills and settled some final changes for our upcoming Palawan trip! So excited. It's gonna be next weekend. My bday!:)

So while I'm settling my bills, I also met up with a friend from FIP who owns a shoe factory. And she gave me this! New brogues. And I love them!:)

So lovely and fits perfectly. :) Thanks Honey!

I'm also currently preparing for a shoot tomorrow. This is the peg:

..never realized how much black, grays and whites I have in my closet until now! Haha. Anyway, will blog about a part of our Bacolod trip later (still not the sad part). When we visited the historic "The Ruins". So breathtaking. So...laters! =)

    can't wait for your "the ruins" pics. i was there 2 years ago and the place is just so beautiful. never mind the rocky road leading to it. LOL

  13. i love the platform maryjanes!!! and what happened to your bowler hats is so sad. just place them under similar round shaped hats as well so that they'll take the shape of hat.

  14. I just so the exact same forever21 shoes at their Facebook page and I guess they just got it for this month's stock. Though I am guessing you got it a much cheaper price (I can't believe I missed it, no shipping fee and like major sale. boohoo)

    Goodluck with the photo shoot dear! :) Can't wait to see the results, put 'em up. :D

  15. sad about your hats dear! those polkadot shoes! i want them!!! hehehe. hmmm... i wanna order again from f21. oh and those brogues your friend gave you are lovely!!!
