Beneath The Eucalyptus Tree

April 13, 2010

I said to myself that only after I receive my orders from GoJane this month will I allow myself to buy ANYTHING,
be it from the mall or the WWW, necessary or slightly unnecessary. hihi.
Penny-wise, I have kept myself within the confines of our house for the past couple of weeks to save me from going loco over summer mall sales and bazaars. And boy, did my strategy work! NO purchases whatsoever of nonessential stuff for almost a month now - read a planner entry scribbled just last Saturday. I was pleased ;)

So this morning, when my dad told me to accompany my sister to school and help her process some papers needed for graduation, I obliged happily knowing that my help would be greatly appreciated.

Fast forward to lunch time; feet were almost dying, brains getting fried by the scorching heat of the midday sun and I, Toni, was totally famished. My sister and I then decided to make quick stop at the mall to grab a bite at our fave fastfood chain and while there, we visited a few shops... Needless to say, my wallet broke her silence more than thrice. Hmpf. There goes my days of practicing self-control.

So while I waited beneath the Eucalyptus tree for my dad to finish his afternoon patient rounds, I contemplated my buys thoroughly and thought; I hardly need any of these :s

Black/White Striped Tee - Mango
Floral shrunken blazer - WAGW (What A Girl Wants)
Distressed jeans - Marconi
Red wedges - Gojane (through Power Retail)
Belt - SM Department Store
Red Sunnies - Old Navy (Power Retail)


  1. I love the shoes, they are super pretty!

    Ako rin I'm trying not to shop because I'm going on a trip haha. The thought of being bankrupt in another country makes me drop any purchases.

  7. Oh Toni, I know what you mean. After practicing self-control for the past days, being subjected to the sights and smell of the stores is really bad. The tendency is to buy anything.
