lonely lonely, that is me

It's the first time that I don't have the beau in tow today for this week's weekend loot. He's feeling under the weather these past few days. I wanted to be with him this weekend but he told me he didn't want me cooped up with him and risk getting the flu myself. "Off you go. Do something crazy," he said. So off I went.

My brain seemed to focus on nail polish these days so I went to the Festival mall to gawk at nail polish. I know, it's sort of lame but when I'm trying to grow my nails back, I obsess about nail color. I think I change colors every week. So anyway, I get there and bought these two: color 319 from BNC and color 05 from BK, which is matte.

Why I forgot to take a picture of the place is beyond me. Probably too excited to see the gray one on my nails. Hehe. So after that, I went to my usual haunts: Booksale and National Bookstore. Bought a couple of stuff from there which are really inspiring. Rummaging through books and magazines made me thirsty so I went to the Coffee Republic at the 4th floor for some Tiramisu Mocha.

This was lucky find. It was out in the open, just waiting for me to pick her up.

I brought my notebooks along with me. One for lists and one for blog posts. 

The one for lists is a DIY. It's made from recycled scratch papers, an old folder, and colorful tapes. It's a DIY listography notebook.

 This list is a bit outdated. I've managed to put more clutter in my bag these days. Oh look I even described my notebook here! I just realized that was there when I was making this blog post. Heh.

Post-coffee break, I went to California Nails and Day Spa. Again, for the life of me I don't know why I didn't take pictures, like a normal blogger would. Luckily, they have their own website! Look at the pinkness of the place! Let me just say that although it IS pricey than your regular manicure place, it is totally worth it. I've never had such attention given to my nails before. I was literally there for 2 ++ hours. That's about one hour per hand! I love the place, I love the products they use, I love how they do nails. I'm coming back, there's no doubt about that. 

Oh! I also bought a new notebook for blogs/notes/"musings". It's a bigger notebook than what I usually buy (see above). It's a regular notebook (Blue Feather padded notebook) and I just wrapped it matching colors so that it would look like a hardbound book. I know, it's dorky. But I'm pretty fickle with my notebooks. 

So that was my weekend. How was yours?

P.S. My blog is undergoing renovation right now, so pardon the mess. I'm still trying to figure out the new blogger features.

P.P.S. ...and yeah, I miss you, internet friends. :)
