Travel Diaries: IKEA, Tampines
As we all know, IKEA is not a ‘tourist spot’, but since we do not have this (yet?) in the Philippines, I have been wanting to visit ever since! My heart has a small spot for interior design, furnitures and the like; however, I did not buy anything since I have no check-in baggage (cries) when I go back to Manila.
The other day, I had an overnight at my Tita’s place who works here (plus, she’s my closest). We planned go to IKEA the next day. She also loves the place and goes there whenever she is free. I just love the thought that I can sit, play and lie down everywhere!!! We got tired of roaming around, so we decided to have a snack. The food is cheap, but it was gooooooood.
We still have to go back there next week because Tita will buy the things needed for Ashira’s playroom. On the other note, I’m gaining a lot of weight since I got here and my legs are getting bigger (it’s freakin forming muscles). Ahhh, tiring, but really fun!!
On my last blog post, The Happy List, I mentioned that I got back on shopping!! Singapore holds the best and craziest sales, that is why shopping is a must. Also, I am taking advantage of the fact that H&M stores are all over the place. Speaking of H&M, I heard that they’re finally in Manila next month!! I. Cannot. Wait.
Anyways, this is one of my favourite hauls from the other 3 I had for the past few months. As of now, I am into neutral colours and laid-back fashion. I decided to keep it more simple, yay!!
Here are my Singapore Finds:
1. Chiffon Dress, Trendy
My favourite pick from my haul!! I cannot wait to wear this classy and chic dress in parties or formal dinners.
2. White Sneaks, H&M
This may be really weird, but I love H&M’s shoe collection more than the clothes they offer. I bought black sneaks from our last trip in Singapore last December, and I got 2 shoes from the store the other day!! When I saw these white sneaks for just 5 freakin dollars… I. Need. To. Get. This, though I have to be less clumsy because white sneaks!!
3. Pearl Earrings, Forever 21
As you can see, there are only 2 items from Forever 21 in this haul no. 4. Well, I only got the chance to roam around the store for only 15-20 minutes since my father and I were running late for a movie. I guess I will still have a 2nd part of my Singapore Finds because I’ll go back to Orchard this weekend, yay!
4. Cropped top, Cotton On
I am not a big fan of cropped tops, but when I checked Cotton On the other day and saw this… ahhh, exception!! I love the print plus it fits me well.
5. Nude Sandals, Forever 21
Needing (yep, it’s a need) sandals when I got here since the flats that I packed for my trip got broken. Well, I’m okay with it because that flats were bought ages ago. I have been overusing these sandals since I bought it. It’s really comfy, and as I said, I am getting more in love with anything nude and pink.
6. Skull-printed Scarf, Cotton On
I have been wanting to buy a scarf since then; however. I’m afraid that I can’t pull it off. I’m still thinking of a good outfit to pair with this one, but I guess it will be easy since it’s white. I actually bought this one just because this scarf is only for 5 dollars with any other purchase. Why not, right?
7. Black Dress
I don’t know where my tita bought this black dress, but I loved it! Can’t wear it yet since the upper part of the dress is see-through. I didn’t bring any tube with me, so I’ll probably wear it when I get back in Manila.
8. Pink Pumps, H&M
The last heels I bought were for my prom last 2012… yup, ages ago!! My mom and I have the same shoe sizes, so I do not have to buy heels since she has tons. As I said, my heart has a small spot for H&M shoes, so I didn’t think twice of buying these, plus it’s the last pair!! How lucky, right?
9. Leopard Dress, Cotton On
I am not much of a fan of leopard prints, but this dress is da bomb!! This is one of the clothes, like the Black Dress, my tita left for me before she and my grandmother leave for their Eurotrip. This is also the same dress I wore during my adventure in Haji Lane.
Pretty sure that there will still be a second part of my Singapore Finds next week. Hope you guys loved my 4th haul as much as I do! :)

It has been a month since the last post of ‘The Happy List’ in my blog. For that whole month, I can’t seem to make one since a lot of things happened without me wanting it to, but I am ditching the drama. I have learned a lot from some helpful advices from friends and helped myself to stand back up again. Everyday, I try to find things that keep me smiling, no matter how small they are. I hope you guys do, too! *hugs*
