Black Friday: Super Impulsive Buys

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! (Belated)

I am grateful for my family, boyfriend, and friends that stuck by me for so many years. To the ones that never gave up and to the ones that cared enough to send me text msgs (lol?). Thanks!

So without further ado....

Black Friday wasn't amazing.

There weren't any good sales...heck it just felt like any other day except it is super crowded and the stores are open longer.

I didn't walk into every store known to exist. I was pretty content with browsing through the mall. My mother and I ended up at Short Hills mall at NJ. The place is huge and filled with high end brand name retailers. Damn! I knew my I was going to make a dent in my wallet.

How big of a dent?

Guys, my wallet exploded into smithereens! It doesn't exist anymore!!!

Picture quality sucks ass because I did not lugged my camera along. Sorry, but hey it's clear enough. Mmmehh!

Not to mention, I already swiped my card to buy a new laptop since my MacBook Pros failed on me. It can't handle all my gaming I've done this month.

I've burned through the 15" and now the 13".

Hence, I gave up. No more MacBooks for me.

So presenting my new beauty...

Alienware M17x!

Sporting a nice sleek exterior, this baby is packing with two ATI radeon video cards, processor speed up 3.7ghz, 8g memory, and with 1tb storage.

Baby, you make me proud.

In the end, I may have wreck my wallet and maxed out come cards here and there...I am happy! May not get fed well this month, but I am happy!

Kate Spade: Pasadena Neda

I haven't really bought anything in a long long time, mainly because I wanted to challenge myself and prove to friends and family that I can do it! That I have more self-control than what many would have predicted. Truthfully...many people are correct about my impulses to spend with my non-existent income.  Oh well, I did try and I didn't buy anything for 1 - 2 months. *Shrugs* I consider that pretty successful!

ANYWAYS, let's continue with my latest package that arrived at my door step today! Hehe :D


Isn't the wrapping paper nice?!
 This is Kate Spade's Pasadena Neda in navy; a large continental zip-around wallet. I know it looks more black than navy, I just couldn't get it to show. It has :

  • 12 credit card slots, 3 billfolds, and zipper change pocket; exterior slide pocket
  • 4.0''h x 7.6''w x 0.8''d

Not exactly sure what I'm going to do with 12 credit card slots because I don't have that many cards to swipe with. But wouldn't that be nice?

Here's a picture of the interior.

As seen, the lining are made of leather and it's peachy. The polka dots are fabric. 

I found this wallet on Ebay where it was featuring a sale on Kate Spade products. The seller is the company itself and many of the products available were fairly priced. Its original price was $198.00, but it was being sold for $79.00, 60% off of retail.

To me, that's a freaken steal. I haven't bought a wallet in three years! I have no clue how that slipped my mind. The wallet I've been using all these years is from Burberry and so far, no scratches, no rips, nada. Nothing! And with its signature pattern, it matches with everything. Hence, I never bothered looking.

Three years is a long time and when I found this beauty, heck why not? 

So, without further ado...I'm going to try to fit as many cards in it as possible. Just to be fancy!

Oh dear! Sorry for the lack of posts lately - so much for consistency right?

What the heck is going on...

  • This is my last semester in college so things are a bit hectic, also I am lazy as hell so I am basically scrambling to get things done ahead of deadline.
  • Just recently registered to take the GRE on Nov. 28th 
  • Exams, exams, and more exams
  • Papers!
  • Applying for Grad school...
Shit man, there's so much to do and so little time. 

So sorry for not posting... 

But despite all this work, I bought many things that I want to post up and share.
