WHERE AM I?

Wow, it’s been so long since I’ve actually posted something that isn’t a short sentence caption of my latest Instagram photos, or a gushing paragraph highlighting my never ending pursuit of gorgeous (but totally reachable for the working class) bags and shoes.

Where am I right now? I’m doing well. Not great, but enough happiness to keep me sane throughout the day. It’s been a couple of months since I left a job I totally love, but crowded too much into my personal life (just like Andy Sachs’ stint at Runway – remember what Nigel said? “Call me when you whole life falls apart, that means it’s time for a promotion.”)

I did enjoy a little break, after all I’ve been working since graduating, and even between jobs, I had no lull time as I had to start the very next day I leave my previous work.

Fixing our house gave me something to do for the past two months, and so far I’m almost done. Just need to install all the basic lighting fixtures and the air conditioners and then I can say the house would be livable.

Of course, not having a job meant I had a lot of time for myself, something I wasn’t used to. I didn’t know what to do at 12 noon except be at lunch with my office mates. I turned to the malls to keep me busy, and that in turn, left me with some crippling charges on my credit card (maybe not really crippling, but I had no job, hence no income, and well, you get the point.)

I miss being in an environment that gives me an adrenaline rush. The feeling of having to accomplish things for the day is really something I look forward to. I remember rushing from Makati to the Fort and then to Ortigas while uploading content on the social media pages I was assigned to. It gave me such a rush, and made me forget to look at the clock (which I think makes time go slower, when you’re aware of every minute passing by.)

Hopefully things turn around soon, because Christmas is coming, and not having income on Christmas is just sad. Not being materialistic, but c’mon, it does help in bringing Christmas cheer!

Oh, and before I forget and make this all about me,

how have you been doing?

Have you seen the new version of the Lockit bag of Louis Vuitton?
It has a softer silhouette than the original Lockit bag (which I personally prefer, I like structured bags), but I cannot say that the new version is bad, either. It still retains some of the structure, but with softer sides. I saw this bag in Louis Vuitton’s store in Greenbelt 5, and the price is astronomically high for most of us (why is happiness so hard to reach?)
So, for someone who cannot spend six figures on a bag just yet, I’ll settle for some high street goodness from Charles and Keith. I don’t really like high street brands that just copies off the high end designer stuff, so I try to stay away from that (how many shameless copies of the Givenchy Antigona have you seen at the mall?) 
This particular bag from Charles and Keith is perfect, with the perfect reverence to the Louis Vuitton I like so much. It still has its own identity, though, which is nice. 
The bag isn’t available in the Philippines yet, but I’m keeping an eye out for it!
