March Means More Books!

But who am I kidding? March doesn't mean more books. The whole year means you get to stack up your already stacked up shelves! That's just the way booknerds roll.

One thing I noticed about my book buying habit though is: it's getting harder and harder to stop buying books on a whim. I tell myself, I've been dying to have this one! And often times, it's true. The question is though: do I even have time right now to read this? 

Honestly   —

I don't.

No regrets though! *cackles*


(I'm sure my 25 year old self is doing the facepalm right now somewhere)

Here we are again with a book haul post, folks! I'm pretty psyched to share last month's buys because a lot of them have been on my wishlist for so long. I can't remember what took me so long to get them but one day I just decided I would buy them. Or maybe I had a hard day at work so my book buying is justified. Take a look!

I Need Anastasia Steele Bangs (and Other Thoughts While Watching Fifty Shades of Grey)

Source: starcasm.net
So I recently had the chance to watch Fifty Shades of Grey for the very first time... and it was uncut too! No black ovals, thankyouverymuch. I wanted to watch it for only two reasons:

1. Jamie Dornan (duh)
2. Dakota Johnson — because people said she was ahhmazing and I had to see for myself. I wasn't one of those who actively expressed their dislike of the actors chosen because I'm not a fan of the books. However, I also wasn't entirely sold with the casting. So yeah, I wanted to see if they had chemistry. 

Aaaand okay, maybe I was a wee bit curious how they handled the softcore porn *coughs* 

 But ANYWAY! Let's get on to my reactions, shall we?

I'm splitting my FSoG reactions into parts because I just have soooo much to say and I don't want to dump everything in a very long entry. 

ENJOY (hopefully)

-----

1. I'm loving their soundtrack already. So sexy.

2. GASP. THE TIES. GRAY TIES SPOTTED, PEOPLE!

3. I love Jamie Dornan's shoulders. And back. I'm a shoulders-and-back girl.

4. I am loving Dakota Johnson's bangs.

5. Lip-biting? Already?

My (Overdue) February Book Haul


Hey guys! I haven't posted anything in a couple of weeks and I'm sorry. I can't really explain right now why, but hopefully in the future I would be able to. Once thing's for sure though: everything's fine. ;-)

Today though I'm going to share the books I got last month. I quit doing book haul posts a while back but I figured now's a nice time to start since I frequently buy books given how stressed I usually am. My stress level is directly proportional to how many books I buy at a time. The more stressed I am, the more books I buy, BASICALLY. I don't always go to the bookstore now but when I do, I can't leave with just one book. This counts as retail therapy, yeah? Aside from that, I realized I share my books on Instagram and Twitter anyway so there's no use keeping it a secret here.

Without further ado... my February haul!

The Powerbooks Book Lovers Sale pity haul. I was quite envious of people who were able to snag LOTS of young adult books from the big sale. I was only able to go to one branch — the one near my office — and it was a small one so it was pretty much slim pickings. I found these though and bought each one for only 50 pesos (less than a dollar!). I had to buy something. If I didn't I'd only feel super sad for not getting anything during the sale period. Also, I feel like I'm going to complete my Blue Bloods collection from book sales alone. Most of the books I have from that series are from bargain bins! I'm gonna take it as a challenge to buy the rest of the books not in full price. LOL

What's in My Bag? (Old Receipts... and Books!)


Hello, lovely book nerds. I present to you: THE CONTENTS OF MY BAG! Huzzah!!!

(I say that like I carry around magic but it's really just a bunch of girly stuff and crumpled up receipts. LOL totally not kidding with the title b-t-dubs.)

The picture I used for my banner is indeed mine. It's not all that I bring daily but that's the bulk of it and the only things you'd want to see. So here's a rundown of what I carry to work (and anywhere else for that matter) everyday:

1. Kikay kit. 

Quick Filipino lesson for the benefit of everyone who doesn't speak the language:


So a kikay kit is basically a tiny pouch where I store all of my girly things i.e. some makeup, some hair scrunchies etc. (I also store my toothbrush, toothpaste and contacts solution there but let's file that under "girly things" too) I can't leave the house without this. I don't put a lot of makeup on my face though but it's sort of comforting to know I have something with me if I'd ever need it. Don't want to be caught unprepared! And trust me, if you live in a tropical country where it's almost always humid, you're gonna need something to make your face not look so greasy. Ack!
