July Haul

Do you guys like to shop? I do. So, I went a little shopping and here's a haul of what I bought for the month of July.

This is a collective haul, I didn't buy all the stuff in one day. I kept them all in their bags but then I realized I threw away some of the receipts already so some items, I may not be able to say how much I got them for. You could check out their website or check at the store just in case you want to buy the same item. :)

The first I bought are these two nail polishes. I do my nails a lot and I really need to have variety of nail polish shades because it makes decorating easier.

Orly in Green apple

Revlon in shade 230 Popular

I also bought some eyeglasses from Fly Wear and from Aldo.
Aldo sunglasses : Php 555.
It's really hard to take off eyeshadow especially if you used a good eye primer. Also, liquid eyeliner is fab in the morning but is really a nightmare at night. I find that it's really hard to remove it especially if you only use water and soap. So, a good eye make up remover is a must.

I bought my favorite eye make up remover from The Body Shop. Php550.

And then I saw this really adorable brush/comb holder at Funky Finds in Trinoma. I'm pretty sure I got this for P150. And that's really amazing because I saw the same thing at Etude House and they sell this for more than 300 bucks.

It matches the mirror that I got last year from Apostrophe in Trinoma.

A girl can never have too many shoes, yes? I got this super trendy color block heels from Pop Culture, also in Trinoma. It was on sale but I'm sorry I forgot the exact price. I went there last week and I saw that they still have this in stock.

What I like about this pair of shoes is that the main color is nude. And I really like nude shoes because it makes me look taller, because I'm really short. It also has a really stylish pink strap detail.

Jellybean is one of my favorite stores. I like that they always update their collection.
However, I noticed that they have too much print items. When you walk inside the store, you'll see prints everywhere! A little toning down on the fabric material and we're okay.

Tribal print shorts

Striped skirt with black button details

This small plastic has wonders in it. I really like Landmark and I have mentioned before that it is my favorite department store ever! I never go inside the store without bringing something home with me. They have great finds that are unique yet super inexpensive.

First, I got this cute owl arm candy in aqua blue with gold detailing. I think I got it for Php150.

Then, some clothes!!! If you are looking for in style clothes but your budget is tight, then I really suggest shopping at The Landmark.

I spotted this royal blue shorts and I loved it at first sight. It has some gold buttons as details and I liked that it looks vintage/pin up. I really love the style. I got it for Php250.
I wore this shorts to Divine Lee's event
here and she complimented it. She said she likes it and even asked me where I got it from.

And then this tribal print mullet skirt that I thought was very unique. I got it for only Php230.

See me wearing the skirt here.

Next is this washed denim micro vest that I got on sale. The original price was I think Php799 but I got it for only Php299. Pretty good deal at half the price.
I see many people wearing this, I have been searching for one but they were all too expensive. I wore this denim to this event.

And the last item is this mullet sheer top in colorful tribal print. I have bought a lit of sheer tops and I'm getting a little tired of them but when I saw this one, it became an exemption. I got it for Php250.

And the last item but definitely not the least. The most expensive and the most important out of all the things I bought...

*drum roll*

Canon EOS 650D / Rebel T4i DSLR!!!!!!

I've been wanting to buy a DSLR because I need good photos for this blog. I bought a new digital camera, also from Canon, only last January 2012 here. And though I feel bad for the digital camera because it didn't even spend 1 year with me, I am really happy with my new baby!!

I got it from CameraHaus in SM North Edsa for Php 47,000 or $1133.

(This unit just came out in June 2012 and I'm glad to be one of the first owners of it.
I'm going to post a separate blog article regarding my new 650D DSLR.)

The sellers at CameraHaus were all so kind and warm. They even gave me a free Canon bag and a free tripod. I already have 2 tripods, one is really tall and the other is really short, so I am thankful that they gave me the medium sized one.

I took up AB Mass Communication in college and we had Photography class. I didn't pay too much attention back then so now I'm regretting. I have a DSLR now but I don't know how to make it perform at its best, yet. :( I need to study again, soon.

But yeah, I am really happy with this DSLR. Now, I can give you clearer photos!! <3

That's the end of my haul.
