Shopping: My Theraphy

I have a gazillion posts waiting to be published in this blog actually but lately, time is taking its toll on me. Apart that I'm being extremely lazy to compose for my blog, I wasn't feeling very well too. Boohoo!

Wait, is it just me or the weather is really, extremely hot lately? Being at 7 months now, I really can't bear the heat and sweat most of the time, even at night. :(

Ok, back to the story. Since it was freaking hot all week, we, I meant me and hubby, decided to go to some colder place to skip the humidity. No no no, we didn't go to Genting if that's what you're thinking of. We can just think of malls and somewhere near and finally headed to Alamanda after haven't been there for quite some time. I just realized that they have a few of new tenants added to the list. As usual, I decided to have a look at the Mothercare outlet. My initial plan is to buy some baby stuffs according to the checklist, seeing that it's almost complete and decided to just wait until next week. But the tempatation is high and I ought to purchase at least a thing for the baby.

Finally I bought the Aden+Anais swaddle blanket. In a set of four, priced at RM109. Been eyeing this for quite sometime from One Baby World and the last time I went to their website to purchase, the items were all sold out. Frustrated you know because they sell these very cheap! So I vented my addiction to Mothercare for the swaddle wraps. They have a selection of prints to choose from and I decided to take the blue colored dots, stars and stripes, because IMHO, the others are plain boring.

Changing pad for the baby. I just bought a cheap one, after a recommendation from my dear cousin. Priced at RM40. I wanted to grab this since their GP Sale, but was hesitated to buy at first because I've bought the normal, square changing mat for the baby already. But heck, who cares since I'm easily influenced and bought this in the end. Hihihi.

Since I started working after a loooooooooooong break, I noticed that I can't fit into my working pants anymore, of course. I'm working with a uniformed agency and it's hard to find pants in navy color. Thus I decided to still wear my old pants with the help of belly belt, where it expands the waistline so I don't feel snuggish around the tummy area and can still wear my other normal pants/jeans with ease. I bought this at Little Whiz, discounted price at RM71.90. Howeverrrrrrrr, I just found a cheaper option at My Baby Shop, selling this at RM63.92. Grrrrrrrr!!!

Oh oh oh, on a totally unrelated news, I came home to my small soon-to-be garden and just realized that the carpet grass has grown into full force from the last time we planted them. Happy!
This is what it looks like before.

And this is what happened after I rigorously water them everyday without fail.

Okay, now it'll take prolly 3 months (or more) for the grass to fully covered the soil. I wish I have my mom's green hands. Everything she touches grows into beauty. My next plan, to grow some lavenders along the border. Wish me luck!

LOL.

Shopping barang baby susah nak stop wooo.. kan?
I think sooner or later once ur tummy dah besar.. you should get bellyband..for me walaupun bump tak besar sgt.. tapi still i rasa wearing bellybelt with bellyband secure ur pants/skirt/kain baju kurung properly. I pakai from ingrid. bought from ebay. :)

Elly Anaille May 4, 2012 at 12:05 PM  

Cheyan: wooshhhh harini ke anniversary? Huuuuu i pn x larat dh ni nk bjalan sebenarnye. Most prolly akan ignore jela sume sale unless online.

Nuown: i ade baca post u pasal bellybelt ni jugak! Hehe selesa la cket pkai kan. At least still bole sarung suar2 n kain bj kurung biasa.
