Project Pretty Little Cravings

Few years ago, I fell in love at first sight. It was like heavens thoughtful act that we met at the right time. I was in need of a breather and a cozy nook to relieve the stress I was in. I heard retail therapy also works at that time, but I’m pinching some for a future big event then. So, I was really happy to be spending quality down time with this new found love, authentic budget-friendly, Swedish home decor store — Ikea. Oh, the days I spent just wandering around Ikea store, no matter how I already memorized the interior maze still brings about a gratified feeling.

When I finally settled down and owned a place to decorate and fill with all the gorgeous furnitures and fixtures, Ikea was not available readily in the Philippines. And I cringe at how expensive Manila resellers market these items.

Fast forward to 2013, I  decided to start a little project, called Pretty Little Cravings on Instagram. We were furnishing our newly turned-over condo unit and I just had to ship few items from Singapore where we were based. I figured out I can save on shipping cost if I take some orders from people who were just like me, eager to get their hands on some few pieces from Ikea. The project was well received and up until now, I still can’t believe that a lot of our avid followers are also returning customers.

The Perks of Having a Credit Card

We all went into a phase where owning a credit card scares the life out of our parents or at least our inner conscience telling us not to spend with it, else all hell breaks loose and you’ll end up in jail.

Quite scary but I hope you’ve come to passed the phase and knows how to use your credit card wisely.

I have my credit card for ages but it was just lately that I am fully maximizing the perks out of it. I’ve found a best friend to treat me for great travel deals, rewards and online shopping, where internet is available almost anywhere in the world. It’s so easy to purchase inexpensive, hard to find items now and ship it home. Or spend some quality time away from the corporate jungle.

If the Shoe Doesn’t fit, Must we change the foot?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of If The Shoe Doesnt Fit. All opinions are 100% mine.

I was at the mall couple of days ago, strolling like any other day, when I found out a lovely store with all the shoes I could ever imagine taking home. It’s like getting lost in paradise with a bunch of shoe-shopping addicts as well. lol.

Although the pairs I love are not on sale, I still had to fight the urge on pulling out my credit card, and buy a new love at that very instant. Well, not yet. I will be here long enough to witness a mall-wide sale, I thought to myself. Until then, I have to get hold to the last shoe purchase I made.

I couldn’t fathom the thought of fighting for a new kicks though when the sale comes up. I know the place will be flooded with giddy girls rummaging the stocks, and I will be left without my shoe size. How sad.

Would it be great if it will be easier to Sell, swap or shop for shoes online? Then we don’t have to worry about falling inline to make a payment or wasting time out to find if the store stocks your size.

At If The Shoe Doesnt Fit you’ll get a fabulous treat! For only $1 you’ll get to list your unworn or gently used shoes and see if others might be interested in taking it. At the same time, you get to chose with so many collections, that you will be surprise at how much bargain you can take in just minute.
