Stylish Coat vs Cosy Jacket

I am in dilemma once again!

Between a Stylish Grey Coat 

or a Cosy Grey Jacket!

And I was looking for a beige or cream colored to complete my New Year's Eve outfit, but I found 2 Grey ones instead.

They are on SALE. Both priced as 60 AED at Splash, Al Ghurair Mall.

Which should I buy?

White on Christmas

One of the Christmas Party on my list is with my bus mates. Our group was formed because we share the same bus rental or service to and from the office. It has the same principle as the school bus except we are all grown ups. We came from different offices inside the free zone and from different parts of Dubai. But we clicked and bonded on our daily commute.

For our Christmas party we decided to spend it in a park to have ample space for our activities like games, exchange gifts and others. We also decided to have color coding on the tops we will wear for picture taking purposes. I went for a white top while the others either red or green, the colors of Christmas!

So I am now on the look out for a simple white top that can be both chick and comfy. I went yesterday to a nearby mall but was in vain. So I started looking online, and saw one from white clothing company

I think I will go for this one and was guaranteed it can still be delivered before the 23rd. Should I go with the boots too?

Wish List: Bags

I posted my Books Wish List, now let me share the bags I would love to have for Christmas. Pls Santa let it be under the Christmas tree on the 24th.

 a Hello Kitty bag or 

Forever 21 bag

Basically I've been a very good girl this year, I guess, sort of.

Shopping for Christmas

Christmas is the season for giving. I love giving gifts and receiving one too. Even a small, simple gift can convey the spirit of Christmas. It's the thought that counts, right?

As always I prepare a list for my family, friends and office mates. I see to it that I gave something to bring cheer to everyone. I don't expect anything in return but of course it feels great to receive a gift too. 

Like a child I also need new clothes for Christmas, hey it’s just once a year so why not fully indulge in it? Browse Gina Bacconi designs at Gray & Osbourn today! They do have great selection. 

I was a little late starting my Christmas shopping this year because I've been way too busy with work for the last couple of weeks. And maybe a little down because I will be spending Christmas this year away from home and not to mention I have to work on Christmas day itself! This will be the first time but I can’t do anything about it. 

Let's be merry this Christmas!

It only cost 8 AED or $2.

A new domain

Yes! After a few weeks of contemplating whether to buy a domain for this blog or not, my itchy shopper’s hand finally gave in to the temptation!

Got it with Godaddy for $8.99, no discount availed. It’s my first dot me domain,!

I was hesitant because I don't know if I can maintain it and if it would be beneficial. As a entrepreneur, I need to check if it will bring back my initial investment. But what the heck! I want it so I gotta have it! More like an impulsive buyer than an entrepreneur eh?

Bargain Hunt: AliCafe @ Carrefour

I scored a bargain last night.

Actually my friend called and told me that my fave coffee is on sale so I asked her to buy me 2 packs. There are a lot of items on sale but I have to go to Carrefour myself to personally check and buy the items.

I saved a total of 12 AED for the two packs, almost enough to buy me a third pack.

Here is the link for the sale items, sale period is from 11th to 24th September. Visit any Carrefour UAE branch now.

I heart contests!

This is my entry to Techie She Lucky Blogger Weekly Giveaways Week 15. This week’s prize is $10 paypal credits from Sheryl of Contest Fan.

Techie She: Blogging Made Easy

The sad part is it doesn't seem to like me back. Every now and then, I join contests preferably those uncomplicated one like this. A little blog post, some following and liking, things like that. I have yet to win in Techie She's giveaways, crossing my fingers!

I too had hosted several contest on my blogs, the biggest was my 1st blogversary. It was fun but very tiring and vowed to simplify the mechanics on my next contests.

Welcome to!

I shop like crazy!

I am an impulsive buyer and sale freak, but recently also into couponing.

I have this concept for quite sometime but always stopped myself coz I have several blogs already.

But being an impulsive buyer, I suddenly created 5 blogs in a wink!
