This groovy looking elephant microbeads pillow was a steal at just Php 399 from the SM department store. It looks great in Zia's room plus the bold colors will definitely fascinate Zia.
Got some charming coasters for the house too from Papemelroti. LOVE. DREAM. LAUGH. LIVE
Even if the shopping day was for Zia, my lovely mom gave me a strictly Php 1000 ONLY budget for myself at Forever 21. And since we were pressed for time (had to go home to the baby), I decided to buy accessories instead of scouring for an outfit that fit the budget given to me.
And because we shopped quite a lot in Baby Company, they gave me my Mom Card for free. Hehe. I'm not keen on collecting points, but hey, it won't hurt having a rewards card.
My happy list doesn't stop at the finds I got from the mall, this was also waiting for me at home. Zia's 5th and 6th pair of crib shoes from Tot Couture (www.totcouture.multiply.com). Aren't they super cute? Can't wait for the baby girl to wear them.
Also part of my happy list not pictured here is the Milk Tea with Pearls 70% sugar I drank from Gong Cha and of course, the person who taught me to shop and shop til I drop, my mom, who now calls herself Zia's purchasing officer. Thanks mom! Zia says thanks Lola. Love it!
Why don't you make your own happy list? =)

Wall decal Christmas trees - they're perfect for houses like ours without much extra storage.
A red tree which Zia's eyes will definitely feast upon since she's got an early penchant for the color.
Or the turquoise version which screams unique and cheery (I'm leaning towards this one).
Or the traditional green tree but slimmer and less branchy and leafy (not sure though where I could get something similar to this.
So there, among my many first orders of business after my maternity leave is to scour the malls and maybe Dapitan Arcade and Divisoria for that perfect tree for our little family - and of course for our perfect gift - our dear daughter, Zia.
Happy times ahead everyone!

~ First time to leave our baby girl for more than 3 hours
~ First Happy Lemon drink
~ First Mochi Ice Cream experience
Try it. A kids fist sized ball of mochi goodness with ice cream inside. You'll wonder where this yummy treat has been all your life. =p
~ First movie date with rich since I gave birth
We watched Real Steel and it was a great 1st movie after around 2 months of hiatus.
~ First time to use the Breastfeeding Station (not to breastfeed, but to pump)
Since we were out for a couple of hours, I really had to pump. Luckily, Eastwood Mall had a nice and quiet breastfeeding station where I could pump privately. I was conscious at first since there were 2 other breastfeeding moms, but I got into the groove shortly and pumped away.
So there, that was my day of firsts and I loved my day yesterday, but it actually made me look forward more to the time when we could share many firsts with our baby girl. Can't wait! Lovelier days ahead!

And if Santa's really feeling generous (not that I'm pushing it), I wouldn't mind having this too.
Hey, it's just a wish list anyway. =p What about you guys? Have you thought about your wish list this Christmas?
Style Thrift Tip #2: Go for carry-alls, they can go from day to night with the proper attire plus it's more functional.

More than ruffles and all the frilly stuff, I've always loved pleats - especially pleated skirts. The pleated skirt could be so many things - it could be feminine, vintage, prim and proper, romantic and playful. What's not to love about pleats? It's a bit harder to iron, but that's just a little sacrifice for fashion. Photo credit goes to www.stopstealingmylook.com
