Hello lovelies! How was everyone's Valentine's?
Mine was spent by lonesome, drinking vodka out of a wine glass, eating mexican and crying buckets watching The Notebook for the nth time! Yup, no date for me and a boy. I'm kind of used to not spending vday with any guy actually. I think the last one where I actually did was 2005 with my college boyfriend. I would always spend my Valentine's Day with my friends going out, having dinner, drinking and watching a movie (I think last year was spent with mom at home, having dinner, drinking vodka mango and watching "The Lovely Bones" and "Up in the Air."). Yes, for the past 5 years I actually got chocolates and flowers from my best friends and not from my boyfriend. I know it sounds awful but it is not as bad as it sounds. There are valid reasons that are beyond anyone's control. But it wouldn't hurt if I actually have a boy to spend it with.
Although I didn't really spend Vday out, I thought it wouldn't harm if I actually wear my red coat for my post-Vday post. I got this coat at F21 while shopping with Amy one fateful Wednesday evening. I've always wanted a red coat and it is perfect indeed cos I got it for just $18 (I think) and it was originally $52!!!
My weekend was more eventful though. I went to Chinook after my work on Saturday, spent an awful good 2 hours by myself shopping. I mostly spent it at Zara trying on just about every sale item on the rack. In the end, I got this printed paper bag trousers for just $9 which was originally $45!!! Then the boy arrived, we had Greek dinner, nibbled on popcorn and soda while watching Blue Valentine. It was a bit stressful and depressing that movie! But Ryan Gosling will forever be hot in my eyes--whatever hair cut he may have ;)
And just because it is Valentine's, lemme leave you with this:
