Unboxing my Valentine’s gift!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! How was your valentines day? Did you had a date with your special someone / people? I didn’t because I had work. lol But I can have a date on other days right? :) Getting on with this post, this V-day, I decided to treat myself and there’s nothing better than shopping!

I ordered some items at Zalora last week and this box arrive on Sunday, Feb. 10. I love that they deliver on Sundays.Zalora isn’t new to me. My first item from them arrived a few months ago and if some of you can remember, I received a notebook as a prize for their “Share and Win” promo on Facebook and which I gave away last Christmas.

This time, I gave into really “shopping” at Zalora. Perfect timing, they were having a sale! There were so many selections! I really had a hard time choosing what to buy and in the end, I got these items.

Swoon’s Nicole Top Handle Tote (522 php originally 1,440 php)

Swoon Nicole Top Handle Tote Bag features a single handle and a zippered main compartment with a small zippered pocket inside.
I’ve always wanted to have a bag like this but it is just way too expensive. So I’m so glad I saw Swoon’s Nicole Top Handle Tote in Zalora. The moment I opened the box and saw the bag, “Oh, ang liit pala”. I was a bit disappointed at first but it was my fault anyways for not checking the specifications in the site. I tried it out, put it over my shoulder and you know what, it was not bad at all! I liked it on the second glance(?) perhaps. It can be worn as a hand bag or, use the straps included and use it as a shoulder bag.(I’m into really large bags you know, because I always bring my closet with me. *i kidd’* haha!)

The next two items are BareNaturals VitaminStix in Definite Lips and Essie nail polish in Go Overboard.

I never had the chance on getting this because almost all the shops I checked online, do not have a lot of stocks on this particular shade. They were always sold out! So I’m really happy when I saw this on Zalora. I’ll make a separate post with swatches of this polish.

Last but not the least, BareNaturals VitamiStix in DefiniteLips (148 php). Honestly, this was a random/impulsiive buy. You see, I’m into lip balms and butters lately and been in the hunt for cheaper butters and balms around. I came across this lip butter on the said online shop and with out any hesitation I added ti to my cart. haha! As much as I want to hoard everything in Zalora, I somehow managed to control myself. Thanks to my conscience for stopping me. My 1 month salary was saved! hahaha!

Shopping in Zalora was really easy and breezy! It was quick, timely and hassle free and I really like the personalized box when it arrived at my house. Will definitely buy again and hopefully not hoard. haha! Shop at Zalora here and newsflash, they are having their anniversary with BIG instant REBATE promo! Go and shop ‘til you drop! :)


xo, Karen
