Blog Silence and Gifts

I've been a very bad blogger lately for a number of reasons. First reason is because I'm trying to find new materials for my blog. Yes it's a personal blog wherein I write anything and everything I put my little hands into but I want it to have a common theme and a little more depth. Still trying to figure out what to do though. Second is due to the fact that I just gave birth. I know it's a week early from my expected delivery date but we couldn't be more happier with the newest addition to our awesome family. lol. I'll tell you about that in another post.

On another note, I wanted to share with you the gifts I got for my birthday.

A 13" batchel backpack and an 11" metallic satchel.

I am IN LOVE with these. Been carrying the red batchel backpack everywhere I go. It's perfect since I have been searching for a bag that fits an ipad plus all of my other stuff and it easily converts from a backpack into a shoulder bag. The 11" metallic satchel is still unused plus there's another one coming this week, an 11" yellow green fluorescent satchel. Excited to receive that. :)

A "mommy watch". lol This is actually my request from the husband.
Blurrrrrrred :|:/

Shoes and the high waist jean shorts that I didn't get to buy on my first sale run due to lack of funds. lol
(refer to this post)
Both from Topshop

I also requested for some shopping time since I can't really go out. Happily did a second 'end of season sale/birthday shopping' run with my friend Cess. I know I was in good hands since she's only a couple of years away from being a doctor. And yes, she knows how to deliver a baby. :) 

I sneaked out after my doctor's appointment for a third and final run the day after. hehe.

The shoes is such a steal at 499 Php. It's such a huge mark down from the original price.
I was teasing my mom since she has the same shoes but she bought it at full price. I got lucky they still have my size.

Also bought myself a super cute passport holder at Accessorize. It was quite cheap although it was not on sale.

And the best birthday gift EVER...
The birth of my second son. :)
I gave birth a couple of days after my birthday.

So basically, my hands are full right now since I'm taking care of my baby and my little boy. I haven't slept well in the past week but hey, I enjoy what I'm doing and I love every second of it. I'm still in the adjustment phase so please bear with me if I could only post once or twice a week. Btw, I will be posting the giveaway by mid-August, hopefully. :)

Will be sharing more soon.
