Surprise Appearance X Sneaker Alliance: Achieving new balance

x’mas shopping with my mom

nope I didn’t buy anything

although mom almost encouraged me to

 

instead

instigated my mom

to buy New Balance

this is not the right word to use

 

she was looking for casual shoes

we saw New Balance on sales

all I did was

further recommended it

by emphasizing on the light-weight-ness

she was looking for

 

she wore them once

thought they were still a bit tight

therefore for the time being

my task is to

wear the shoes

on behalf of loosen them up

 

this is what we call

achieving a New Balance

 

I don’t have to shop

yet fulfill my dream of

having New Balance at home

 

mom will soon

get a more fitting pair of

“New-Balanced” sneakers

win-win situation

 

it is beige in colour

I almost got her to buy the blue pair

too bad the size did not fit

new balance in beige

 

new balance GM500LB

okay

for the sake of helping mom out

I will wear them real soon

new balance GM500LB

Asian Size X “Affordable” Price: Burberry Blue Label

from the previous post

Giant Pocko X Raw Potato: Gifts From Hokkaido

 

the “jealousy” continued to burn

when i took back my dear Lexis

to transfer the photos

 

OMG..

Burberry Blue Label

less than ten Blue Label store wordwide,

seven in Japan

till quite recent, one in Hong Kong

 

When Burberry Blue Label was founded,

the target consumer was

a young Japanese female looking for

unique products sold specifically in Japan.

The products are more affordable because

their target customer does not

have a large disposable income.

 

and it specializes in

smaller Asian size

 

but i guess for bag

sizes do really matter

for some

as long as the logo is visible enough

 

read more here:

Burberry Blue Label

Burberry Blue Label Opened in Hong Kong

 

i buy flip flops and toys

but this woman buys designer’s bag

each and every trip overboard

this is too much!!!

 

well..

she is the boss

and i am the poor slave

what to do

 

just hoping hard that

she gets tired of it real fast

and hand-me-down

next season..

woohooo..

 

Burberry Blue Label Denim Handbag

 

it appealed to me

not because it’s a Burberry

it’s the Blue Label…

and the non-Burberry design

 

weirdo

who looks for design which

doesn’t reflect the brand at all

just like these…

 

they look lovely

because

they look neither Jeremy Scott

nor Longchamp

 

Greetings From Paradise

Jeremy Scott for Longchamp – Spring 2012

retailing at HKD 2,380 each

jeremy-scott-paradise-recto jeremy-scott-paradise-verso

 

probably

i can’t afford both

i am more than happy

to stick to my cloth bags

 

every girl has a dream bag

(at least one, i mean)

let it remains a dream then

 

sssshhhh…

mine is ________

Giant Pocko X Raw Potato: Gifts From Hokkaido

gifts... not for me

 

this whole thing

goes to my niece, Jazmine

she was all excited

especially over the boots

 

after her mom bought her

the gladiator sandals from Taiwan

she was so proud of them

calling them “Taiwan Shoes”

and wearing them every single day to school

 

she gave up all the Crocs-alike

for the pair of “Taiwan Shoes”

till very the very recent Angry Bird slippers took over

Gladiator sandal vs Crocs

 

and this time round

OshKosh B’Gosh boots

Oh my gosh

it must have cost a fortune

but they are really lovely

and looks good with her usual legging-look

OshKosh B’Gosh boots

 

my only concern is

when is she going to wear these

not on Chinese New Year, definitely

boots + hoodies

is not a wise combination

for the 30+ degree Celsius weather back here

 

next up..

the giant Pocky

when I saw it

it was just wrappers and empty pack

about to be disposed of

 

thank goodness

I was not too late to save it

it’s actually an One Piece cross-over

with a chess board

Pocky X One Piece

 

although I am not a huge fan of it

as a person who collects

“trash” as you may call it

I think it is kinda wasteful to throw these away

therefore keeping it

 

who knows I got to sell it

at an auction years later

“in your dream….”

 

that’s the part for Jazmine

for me

not too bad

 

okay

I am about to sound sour

if my gifts were to be

compared to the hoodies and boots

 

a facial wash

oh so so good

I know right

at least it is from Kose

be thankful

softymo facial wash from Kose

 

and save the best for last

a couple of raw potatoes

potato

 

boo…

I wish I have a Christmas gift for real

somebody who really knows

what I want

a small inexpensive thing will do

No Pain No Gain:

been thinking of buying another all-black watch

and wearing them on alternate basis

yet one dies off too young

finally giving up hope on blackie

replacing with another Black

 

Not My Kind of Loot:

then why did I buy

baby pink canvas shoes

it is not my intention, really

I wanted white,

yet it runs out of the proper sizes

out of yellow, green, baby pink

this is the most soothing colour

and I can’t resist Puma, sometimes

just like the backpack (as above)

pink canvas

if there is one thing I gonna buy on 2012

no worries

I bought nothing at all

but groceries

36 items for the 1st half

20 items for the 2nd half

 

then second half of the year…

it actually improves…

except for a couple of slightly costly items

 

the detailed report for 1st-2nd Q of 2011:

No More New Entree X Time to Examine: My Shopping Entr'acte

 

I refrained from buying

since October

because from the record I have been keeping

I thought I am 3 bucks away from the budget

yet

I just realized

actually I forgot to key in certain items

 

therefore

I am actually 27 bucks

exceeding the budget already

 

pardonable, right

at least

I vow to keep my hands off

till the end of the year  

and this new budget I set

was actually way lower compared to last year

 

last year:

much higher

in terms of quantity, cost and variety

Curtain Call 2010: Loots of The Year

 

2011 pros:

  • this year I spend more time considering
  • there are less regretful & ruthless shopping
  • more Zaza, less Zara

 

2011 cons:

  • the not-so-practical high heels
  • repeating flip flops

 

2012 resolution:

I don’t think

I can further reduce this budget

still,

I will try my best
