shopaholic? blame the weather!

it's the first day of summer and im stuck here at home because it's been raining and everything is just wet outside. aaahhh!!! i was hoping i can go out to bike around and find a new place to take photos, but alas the weather isn't cooperating. im just lounging around the house so im back to indoor shots, lovelies..


outfit: gifted top, old navy shorts, janylin wedges
im trying to fix my room because almost one fourth of my bed is occupied by new items that i haven't gotten around to wearing yet. some were from my last trip to calgary, some were rewards and giveaway stuff i won, some were graduation gifts and others were just random sale items i got in the mall. it's funny because back when i had a job, i can't seem to get myself into buying new things all the time. but now that i am unemployed, i find myself receiving packages in the mail and accumulating more things (most of which are free, so that explains it, i guess).


speaking of new things, i didn't realize that now, urban outfitters is having a $10 flat rate shipping fee for canadian shoppers! how awesome is that?! not that i need more things in my closet.. but seriously, whoever thought of this idea is genius!!!! hahaha! i've been wanting to purchase bodysuits, scalloped shorts and nude shoes from their online store since it's not available here in my city. and i just can't bring myself to pay $25 for shipping back then. but this $10 flat rate fee is so so tempting!! it's even free when you go over $150. aaaahh!!! winnipeg friends, help me fill my cart! hahaha!

ok, i just realized that this post was so materialistic and was just all about shopping. im not really like that, i promise. hahaha! this weather is just keeping me from venturing outdoors and is totally tapping on my shopaholic instincts. tsk tsk, bad!

Comment of the Day: Daphne
since I know you like talking about food, in the picture with the buffet there is a pan with chow mein I have been all over town to find the right noodles for it. Can you pretty please tell me where you get the noodles/what brand if you happen to know:)
p.s your sunglasses look really good on you.

im choosing this comment so i can answer your question about that dish. it's called pancit bihon and the noodles used are called rice sticks. they'll have the "bihon" label in the packaging too. you can go to lucky supermarket or young's asian market and ask the clerks about it. i'm pretty sure they know it! :D hope that was helpful!

  2. I am super jealous of all of those tights! They look adorable.

    Isn't it frustrating that the days you actually want to go outside, the weather is horrible? It always seems to happen that way!

  6. That's awesome that they lowered the shipping fee. I once wanted two skirts and the they total cost of them was $25, but shipping was like $50. Love that.

    Pretty shirt and love those socks.

  13. Shopaholic? Blame the weather? I will! I've been shopping a lot lately. Primarily, for new skirts for work. I normally wear dress shirts and pants, but the summer is truly here in KANSAS. I'm loving vintage high waisted skirts at the moment. My new favorite shops for vintage are found on etsy.com

  19. Love the outfit. The pale pink and white go together so well, and, if anything, I admire you for getting dressed properly even though you were stuck at home. If I'm not going anywhere, I'm pretty much always in pajamas, so you've inspired me to try harder! :)

  35. Shopping at urban outfitters has been my downfall this summer!! While on vacation, there is one in walking distance of me. When I return to my town, there isn't one for 7 hours. The only problem is my vacation is almost 2 months long... haha

    ReplyDelete
  36. wow, i just love it all !
    the scalloped shorts are just lovely.
    and i know what you mean, half of my bed is purchases, i just haven't got round to sorting it out !
