I have never – I repeat, NEVER – got the chance to go on a proper shopping spree ever since my baby was born. I miss spending hours at the shopping mall like I have all the time in the world. I miss trying on countless clothes and shoes. I miss being ‘lost’ in my own shopaholic world, sauntering from one boutique to another. As much as I love spending time looking after my baby, I miss having my me shopping time. But having a small baby limits all that, and the only shopping I do besides online is just a quick dash to the department store or the supermarket, and everything must be done in less than 2 hours before my baby starts to be cranky. It still amaze me tho, how a tiny purchase like a toy for my baby can lift up my mood after a long week. But still, that wasn’t enough.
After 5 months, 2 weeks and 2 days (yes, I counted!), I finally got my shopping spree “pass”. My husband agreed to let me have my own sweet time at the mall while he and my baby stayed at my in-laws’ house. I was elated! I spent the first few hours with my sister and my mom at the Valiram sale (they both baught a Fendi and Gucci watch each btw), and later continued my shopping mission on my own.
I had a blast! Shopping is really therapeutic. I even skipped my dinner bcoz I forgot that I was hungry (plus, I had a quick bite with my mom and sister earlier before they went home).
Of all the purchases I made that day, this is my most favorite:
Spotted at Eclipse is a mirror-like platform heels. I love that it’s a peep-toe, a slingback and it’s a 5-inch heels. The heels may look like a killer, but they are the comfiest I have ever worn. They are so comfy that I could even walk down a staircase while carrying my baby without tripping. The mirror-like effect is simply stunning. It’s like a glass slipper. A gunmetal glass slipper. I love it. It comes in black as well; I think I’m gonna get that too. Don’t be surprised if I told you that my favorite shoes are mostly Eclipse. They make comfy and stunning high heels at the price that won’t hurt your wallet. What more could a girl asks for?
On another note, my brother wants to have a shopping date with only me and my sister whenever both of us are free. He wants to belanja us anything we want for our belated birthday presents. Isn’t he the sweetest? I am so looking forward for that day. A mommy needs a break once in a while too!
