Fendi Mini Peekaboo Bag + Old Navy Reviews

Image
After seeing Wendy's Lookbook'sFendi Mini Peekaboo Bag, I was very intrigued and discovered it comes in a light grey color with cobalt blue that I instantly became obsessed with. Since I couldn't stop thinking about it, I gave in and purchased it to see if it'll fulfill my on/off obsession to one day own a Hermes bag, especially since it reminds of the Kelly yet is more casual, which fits my style more. The Birkin is also more casual than the Kelly but I really dislike how it doesn't have an optional shoulder strap, which I find to be extremely important because convenience and comfort is so much more important to me now that I've gotten older. I've debated over whether I really want a Hermes bag for what it is or for what it represents, which is how it represents the bag of all bags to many, but haven't yet come to a solid conclusion. Anyway, I was so excited to finally get the Fendi Mini Peekaboo Bag, and I have to say I was very surprised by how smal…

Muji Luggage + Brining 101

In this post here, I mentioned I picked up a Tumi Luggage Tegra-Lite International Carry-On Bag, which is perfect for the shorter domestic flights I take but I also want to share what I use for longer international flights, which is my trusty Muji Valise Hard Carry Travel Suitcase. When the handle of the only large suitcase I'd ever owned broke down on me while in Tokyo last year, my good friend suggested I buy either a Samsonite or Muji luggage since she said they're both highly recommended by her friends. Since I  was in Japan anyway, I decided to go for a Muji one. I still remember that rainy day in Tokyo, rushing to the store since my flight was that day, which I ultimately missed by the way. I walked into the store thinking I'd buy the largest one they had but realized the 85L size is huge, as in big enough to swallow me up, and so decided on the 60L, which is the same size as my old one and looks much better with me proportionately. I settled on beige for the color a…

November Haul + Ebates

Image
I can't believe it's December already! Here's this month's haul:


The above pair of Christian Siriano for Payless Women's Krpytic Double Buckle Pumps was picked up on a whim when my family stopped by a few weeks ago. Because of A, I'm drawn to camo print and this pair was surprisingly comfy and cute (and affordable at $22). :)


I also want to mention to those of you who online shop that ebates.com has been really great for me. Since I signed up years ago, I've gotten a substantial amount of cash back. My sister and A both just signed up for it and regret not having signed up earlier. No matter what I buy, I always go to the website through ebates.com so I can get cash back for all my purchases and it honestly really adds up. A just recently signed up for it and now obsessively looks at the fluctuations in cash back from stores now. On Cyber Monday, there was double cash back for almost all stores, which is huge in terms of savings. I definitely recommend sign…
