Like all the other girls out there, we all work hard everyday and when that day of the month comes (which is pay day)– all we want to do is relax and give ourselves some treat and pampering. Just so you know, I don’t do this a lot- so I kind of went all out. Haha.
First stop, I went to The Bag Museum at Wilson st. (right on top of Ristras) and decided to check out their bags. A contact informed me that they sell designer goods at a cheaper price. When I arrived, I instantly fell in love with this Furla bag. I wore it the whole time whilst searching for other goods. Moments later I found out that their bags are actually priced 20-30% off the retail price.
My top three choices from L-R: Furla bag, Tory Burch red bag and Kate Spade bag
They don’t only sell handbags, in fact they have wallets, sunnies and accessories available too! And I just love the brands that they’re handling- Tommy Hilfiger, Gucci, Kate Spade, Furla, Michael Kors, Tory Burch and many many more. You can also try ordering from The Bag Museum online if you don’t have time to visit the store. You’ll definitely be see me wearing my new bag soon.
Lunch time! Since Ristras was just below, we decided to check it out. I got the spicy beef burrito- yum. For an easier transaction, I used my Visa debit card. It looks like a credit card but it’s actually an alternative to cash or checks. If you hate losing money, then this is perfect for you. A debit card is linked directly to you bank account (or how much you deposit to the card) so your money will just be in one card.
Just a few benefits when you use a debit card: it allows you to make the same kinds of purchases as with credit cards without needing to carry cash, it provides the same type of “zero liability” protection as credit cards, there is no APR or interest rate charged. You can use it when purchasing anything too!
After eating, I went straight to the mall. I visited my two of my favorite shops Mango and Topshop and couldn’t resist their latest collection. Good thing I have my Visa debit card all the time- and because a debit card links directly to your bank account, you can spend only what you have in your account. This helps keep you out of debt. It’s really my money in one card- so convenient. I love it!
Now- “hindi magpapakabog ang local stores.” Seriously, I really love local stores, not only are they available but the designs are also breathtaking. Looks like I won’t be shopping for awhile after this. BMS.
