Sinful Shopping

If you ask me what I've been doing for the past 1 week during CNY, I would tell you honestly that I have been indulging in some sinful shopping. It has been quite a long time since I last throng through the mall. Then it hits me, shopping is really such a good mood lifter. Or in other words, a retail therapy once in a while is as good as going to a Spa!!!

It was indeed very crowded during the week before CNY where everyone is rushing to buy new clothes, new shoes and perhaps new red bras and panties for the celebration but I was unfazed by all these craze over new clothing. I've never had new clothes for the new year. My mom taught me to wear whatever I want and whenever I would like and thus the new clothes that I buy never really make it till new year....

Last week, I had a meeting in KLCC. Actually it was 3 meetings in KLCC back to back since the order was really urgent and important. Then, on the last day of the meeting, during lunchtime, I couldn't resist to peep into Celine @ Isetan and then 5-10 mins later, I came out with a bag! I swear it felt like "Veni, Vidi, Vici" (I came, I saw and then I conquered) that kinda feeling.



Well, you couldn't really blame for being such a spontaneous shopaholic because afterall, this is a very beautiful Celine from the Celine Pillow Collection. In fact, I have been eyeing on this bag for quite sometime and this is the right moment because it's on discount! I thought it would make a bloody good birthday gift for myself after a year of hardwork and slavery. This would me my 4th Celine.... heheh (Previous Celine can be found here and here)

I think I have symptoms of a Celine addict.

Anyways, moving on to another addiction of mine.

"THE LITTLE BLUE BOX & BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S"

Ring a bell yet?

Yeah, remember how devastated the last time I was because I accidentally broke the pin of my beloved T&Co earrings? I did sent it back to T&Co to get it fixed for RM180 and it took almost a month to get it back! Well, I was actually kinda stupid to have sent it back to them because a normal jeweler would have helped me fixed it a quarter of the price. Oh well... I couldn't complain much because when I went there to collect my earrings, they are as shiny as new!



My beloved earrings...


All wrapped up...


They sent my earrings to Hong Kong to be repaired and then send it back here. When I was there to collect them, the earrings were polished and cleaned and they even wrapped it up again like it was a newly bought item! I guess the RM180 is inclusive of these wrappings and services!

About this T&Co, I also received a cute little glass case for my recently belated birthday. It was not a T&Co jewelery but it's indeed a beautiful jewelery case from T&Co for all my T&Co to come!


The luxe glass case...


That's all the luxuries I have for today. I can't help but to think that this is a filler post until I warm my writing engine back. Have been having such a lazy time for the past few days!

Once in a while, you need to pamper yourself. I quite like the stuff at Tiffany as well but unfortunately they are very dear.

Pretty things for a pretty lady... Hope you had a wonderful CNY.

Sean said...

yikes! your shopping puts mine to shame. all i bought before cny were a few seed shirts for work :D that jewelry case looks cool though, very sleek...

What you got from Tiffany's pretty much epitomizes the spending habits of people these days.

People are very willing to spend for service and exclusivity.

Strictly speaking, any indulgence is sinful, be it sex, love, food, drink, shopping, etc. If no sin, no fun and no life, better to become a monk or nun.

Anon: Yes. That's why I only indulge in expensive shopping on rare occasions!

STP: Thanks and I hope you had a great CNY too!

Sean: Nah don't say that. Mine are not even necessities!

The Gunner: Yep. i think so too. But I think I was quite a fool.

Anon: That's true also. As long as the indulgence doesn't hurt anyone, i think it's fine.

boo_licious said...

Gong Xi Fa Cai!! Love the Celine bag. Ah, I've also got that Tiffany glass case - xmas pressie from long ago. Think I used it to take pixs of the Teuscher chocs one day.

eiling lim said...

Anon: Wow thanks for spending time to read my hypocritical blog!

Thenomadgourmand: Should tell chef koh so that he'll know many of the customers are making the same comments. Maybe the portion at Pressroom is more suitable for ladies. But I've yet to try Giovino!

Boo_licious: ooh that's nice and that gives me an idea!!! Thanks!

TY said...

You earn it and you spent it to pamper yourself; there is nothing wrong with that circle of life.
Nice bag you got there but I never understand the passion link between females and bags.
Anyway monogram is not my preference,prefer something more discreet.

eiling lim said...

TY: You have a point there about monogram. the thing about Celine is that it's quite an unknown brand to many and I like it that way.
