My 2015 Hello Kitty Planner


Happy New Year Lovelies! It's 2015 already and we are all set to face the new positive chapter in our life. There may be ups and downs but we all knew that God will not give us those challenges if we can't overcome with it. To start my year right, I must have to have a planner where I can write all the things I wanted to plan in my whole year. Maybe I can't follow them all but there is a big chance that I can make it. Planner will serve as my guide in order to achieve what I want this year. Sharing with you my 2015 Hello Kitty Monthy Planner where I bought it 3 months ago from National Book Store (which is one of my favorite places to go in the mall). You can find a lot of planner inside their store but this one caught my attention. It is light weight and small which exactly what I'm looking for. Aside from personal and emergency information, it also have special dates to remember (Philippine holidays), 2015-2016 calendar, address and phone directory, monthly plan calendar, things to do, notes, cheat sheet for measurement conversions, zodiac and Chinese birth signs and meanings. But what I truly like about it is that it has an expenses tracker which is a must have for this year. This may help me to budget my expenses and save money.  What's your planner looks like?

Year End Sale


Top: Penshoppe | Bottom: Penshoppe | Shoes: Solemate

One thing I like most when the year ends is that "the year-end sale galore". It is almost all the brands that I like most are having a year-end sale or they called it inventory sale. Where all their old stocks must go before the inventory comes. Since I live near SM Lanang Premier, I take the opportunity to go the mall and look for super cheap items to buy. Luckily I found uber sale at Penshoppe store. For only 149 php I found this blue aztec sleeveless top with a surprise at the back. I also found this black skinny pants that fits well on my legs and butt which I also bought it for 149 php. Not bad right?! #happykidhere Go check your nearest mall this month because they are having an inventory sale that will surely fits your budget. Just be patient and make sure you fit it first before paying it at the cashier. Happy shopping Lovelies! (^,^)
