UKAY-UKAY HAUL

I am taking a short break on sharing outfit and rant post, hahaha. I’ve done something different in my everyday routine and I wanted to share it with you all. Just recently, I got bored in the office. You know that typical worker taking her lunch break alone and it is so booooooorrrrring(yawning). So instead of just sitting in my work station, I called my cousin and ask her if we can meet up lunch time. I feel like I wanted to go somewhere. An idea popped in my mind, “Pwede mo ba akong samahan mag-ukay”?  – asking my cousin if we can go thrift shopping. Since we only have 1 hour lunch break, we immediately checked out the nearest ukayan(here in Port Moresby).

Before I start showing off my recent haul at Ukayan, let me give a short introduction and why I love shopping at Ukay

What is Ukay?

It is secondhand apparels such as bags, clothes shoes and etc. being sold in a very cheap price. Ukay-ukay(UK) in Filipino language and derived from word halukay or act of digging since shoppers have to dig into pile of secondhand clothes. The store is called Ukayan or thrift store.

Why I shop at Ukay?

I am a thrifter for as long as I can remember, hahaha. Apart from Divisoria, I prefer to shop at Ukay. They are treasure trove of  branded pieces that you can add to your closet. It is most likely the clothes you’ll find are all in one and unique but very cheap. Price ranges to Php 5, Php 10, Php 50. I am sure that you can have a complete get up with Php 100. As a working girl, it’s a challenge for me to dress up everyday and I don’t want to spend too much money just to be fashionable. Kailangan maging praktikal, tipid tayo dapat bes.

Shopping at Ukay is like finding needle in a haystack. Just dig patiently, you’ll never know what buried goods await. Just like these gems I rummaged.

A striking one shoulder dress with a 70’s inspired ruffle. You can pair it with brown strappy slip ons and a fedora hat. Summer Vibe. Cost 6 Kina = Php 85

Cotton on Boho Dress. In Philippines, when you buy a dress from Cotton On, it’ll cost a thousands. I was lucky enough to find this dress in the rack. I got it for only 4 Kina = Php 60.

Turtle Neck Dress. The fabric that exactly like my turtle neck top from Bench(check my previous OOTD post) Cost 4 Kina = Php 60

Denim Oversized Top with puffy sleeve. Can pair with leggings. Cost 4 Kina = Php 60



Palazzo Pants and Maxi Skirt. They’re comfy to wear and can be paired with plain top and flats. Perfect when I have office runs. Cost 5 kina each = Php 75

Romper that can be worn over a white top or a denim jacket as cover up. Cost 3 Kina = Php 45.

Me and my cousin went back to Thrift Shop lunch time today(Friday). Naadik lang. It’s like hitting two birds with one stone. And I scored these grunge pieces, bwahahaha.

Adventure Time Printed Leggings. Seriously? A 29 year old will wear this? Haha I don’t care what you think. It is super cool. Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum, Marceline and the rest of the characters are all printed in here. Cost 6 Kina = 80 Php


Basic Pink Top. I got it for only 1 Kina = Php 15. I’ll pair this with maxi skirt or Adventure Time Leggings

Denim Jacket. This is actually for my sister. I got it for her for only 2 Kina = Php 30.

TMNT Tee. Just so you know that I am obsessed with vintage tees especially when it’s printed with 90s Cartoon. They are memory from my childhood like this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Cost 3 Kina = Php 45.


Last but definitely not the least, pair of booties. I’ve been scouting all over for an authentic Dr Martens and look what I’ve found somewhere in a dusty corner, Dr Martens-like-booties. It is destined to be mine ’cause it’s my size. There are some scratches but still in good condition. And guess what? It’s only 14 Kina = Php 210. Can I scream now? Hahaha

So there you go. These are the new precious things that I’m going to hang in my closet. I can’t wait to wear them and share it with you all. Nothing beats the feeling of looking at these things that I’ve taken home and realizing that I’ve got them in a very cheap price. I can say that am proud being practical. I am a type of girl who couldn’t careless about the brand and the price tag. ‘Cause for me it is being able to bring it no matter what brand and how cheap it is.

PS: I am not bragging here. I am just super happy with what I’ve got here.

Skulls In My Closet

Hello Istaylistas.. Shame on those who think that I’m gone forever here in blogosphere. And I am so happy to announce that I’m baaaack!

I want to share a story about the parcel I ordered from the “Home of Skull Stuff”Fashionmoto Shop.

I had conversation with the owner of Fashionmoto to reserve the black skull shirt they’re selling in their shop. +Wrey Swift (Wreyzza) gave me her bank account details where I can deposit the payment of my ordered item. I also gave her my complete shipping address to ship the package. Everything is all clear. The package was picked up by the courier. She gave me the tracking number to check the status of the item. The next day, I checked the status of my package, It was hold due to conflict of address. I was worried and immediately contacted Wreyzza. I also emailed the courier regarding with the status of my package. I told them that I’m disappointed on what happened with my package. I am sure that I gave the correct shipping address to Wreyzza. I don’t see any conflict about that blah blah blah…. Then the courier answer the email and confirm my shipping address and ask if I am from Brgy. San Miguel General Trias, Cavite. I replied them, “There’s no such place as Brgy. San Miguel here in GenTri, it is Brgy. San Gabriel. I texted Wreyzza about this and she told me that it was all her fault. She copied a wrong address. I laughed and texted her that it’s ok. The package was already transferred to LBC. All I have to do is to wait.

And finally, parcel from Fashionmoto Shop is here:

Black Skull Shirt with Black Skull Bracelet as freebie on patronizing Fashionmoto’s Shop. Wreyzza also sent a note saying “Thank you”.  You are always welcome Wreyzza. I am looking forward on seeing and meeting each other wearing our skull shirts and accessories.
Also, addition on my skull stuff collection from Lovestuff Clay Factory, Arm Candy Skull Bracelet.

I can’t wait to wear, ramp and rock these skull shirt and skull accessories. Thanks, Lovestuff Clay Factory and Fashionmoto shop on these skull stuffs. Happy Me 🙂 Hugs and Kisses from me.


FINDS: Japanese Stickers

Three days straight of blogging and it’s a record breaking for me, lol. These past days, I’ve been blogging about my new stuffs and new finds. And today, I want to share my haul from my favorite “abubot” store, Love Stuff Clay Factory. But this time, I didn’t order customized accessories or accessories made of clay. I found out that the owner is also selling Japanese Stickers for scrapbooking. Ok, here’s the photo of the stickers I ordered:

Cats and Pigs Japanese Stickers
These are soooo cute stickers. The texture of stickers are emboss, puffy, and soft. There are lots of kawaii cats and pigs with their different expressions, paw prints, fishes, and cakes. These are perfect for scrapbooking and making cards. Look where did I put the kawaii stickers 😀
Kawaii Stickers at the Back of my Phone

I put the stickers at the back of my phone. Isn’t cute? Also, I am planning to put these on my planner 🙂

HAUL from Love Stuff Clay Factory

Wazzup blog? Almost forgot I had you. I’m so sorry blog 😦 As always, been busy at work and don’t have spare time to blog about what I’ve been doing lately. But now, I’ve got the chance to blog about my Recent Haul. So here’s the story:

I got addicted to this clay store where you can request your own design(customized). If you’re a follower of my blog, I’m sure you have read about my last year’s post. If you don’t know what I am talkin’ about, here’s a recap: (click here)
Accessories made of clay? Cool? But that’s not an ordinary clay we used to play when we were kiddos :D. Accessories were made of “POLYMER CLAY”, an oven-baked material that you can mold or you can sculpt. It comes in different colors.
Here are some of my accessories I ordered from Love Stuff Clay Factory:
 Plants VS Zombies Phone Charm
Domo Kun Necklace
 
I never got the chance to take photo of the Starbucks Phone charm I gave to Meryl as my Christmas Gift to her. But if you want to see, click here. She blogged about that 🙂
And wait, theres more:
Customized Accessories I ordered:
 Skull and Smiley Ring
Camera Bag Charm with Coffee Bean, Slice of Cake and Cookie
Wearing my Customized Skull Ring at the office
Lol, kill me now for ordering a lot of accessories. But this is not the end of my “ADDICTNESS”.
Have you heard about “PLUGY”? A plug-in earphone jack for IPhone. I also want to have it on my phone just like Dara’s phone:
Miffy Plugy
Love Stuff Clay Factory is now accepting orders for customized Plugy earphone jack. I’ve always wanted to be unique and different, so I ask Cheysser(owner of the store) to customize a plugy for me. Here’s my pick:
Super Mario and Princess Peach Toadstool
I ask Cheysser to customized 2 earphone jacks for me. Princess Toadstool’s head  for me and Super Mario’s head for??? Hahahaha. That’s my favorite video game actually 🙂 I can’t wait Cheysser to finish it. She said, she’ll finish it by next week. I’ll blog about that once I have them 🙂
Oh BTW, please please like Cheysser’s Page (click here). If you want to order, there is a complete detail on the page on how to order.

November Haul

I haven’t getting the time to update my blog lately because I’ve been really busy at our store. Blogging has become part of my life. Every time I hear, see or experience something that interests me, I feel I need to blog about it right away and share it with you all 🙂 And today, I want to share my November Haul.

Even though I’m, busy with our store, I have time pa din to shop some cute stuff thru malls and even online, lol.

And here they are:

Toms Red Replica Shoes
Hello Kitty Hand/Sling Bag
Black Leather Ribbon Wristlet | Key Necklace | Mickey Mouse Earrings

I bought the shoe from a bazaar.Very comfy niya. And first time ko bumili ng “RED” shoe. I bought naman the Hello Kitty Hand bag from a friend. I love collecting Hello Kitty Stuffs :). Lalo na kapag mga bags and purses. The third picture was a set of black accessories. The Key Necklace and Mickey Mouse earrings, I bought them from Macle(a friend of mine). The wristlet is from Folded and Hung.

Last November 16. I ordered shirt from Team Manila online:

“GANDA” Shirt (grabbed from Team Manila)

I hurriedly paid this shirt thru LBC after I received a billing invoice from them that I need to pay the item I ordered. After paying, I contacted them when will be the exact date to receive the package. They said that only 2-3 days. I was expecting to have it delivered last week but I didn’t receive it by Friday and I got worried so I immediately contacted them and they said that it got lost by Xend :(. I was sad about that and quite disappointed with what has happened with my package. The transaction was a hassle for me 😦 They emailed me and promised that I will be receiving the package right before December 6(my birthday). Yesterday, they emailed me again that they already shipped out the item and they gave me the tracking number. And right now, I’m expecting that I will be receiving it tomorrow morning.

I also ordered these online(kanina lang) and I need to pay it thru Globe GCash:

Starbucks Cellphone Charm
Domo Kun Necklace
Plants Vs. Zombies Cellphone Charm
I ordered these cute accessories from  Cheysser’s Love Stuff Clay Factory. If you like to order just click here.

I’m not bragging, lol. I’m just showing off what I’ve bought/purchased from malls and online shops. I’m just sharing these things to all my peers. Hope you enjoy reading this post about what I’ve bought this month of November 🙂 XOXO

This planner is from my friend. Birthday present niya sa akin.. What I love about this planner is the velvet cover at ‘yung SB chain niya. Lol, swear, di ko pa masyado nagagamit.. Wala naman kase ako masyado plans this year.. Tssss…. Gusto ko talaga ‘yung nakita ko sa Google.. Hmmmm, so I’ve decided na kuhanin ‘yung picture na ‘yun and put it right here on the Blog.. Here it is:

This planner is sooooo win. Pero di ko naman alam kung saan bibili nito.. I googled the location of Emily the Strange Store, sad to say na wala siya store dito sa Philippines :(.. Eto lang ‘yung nakita ko: just click here. And the planner is not available..
