Black Friday – Cyber Monday Wishlist

Hello, how are you all! Belated Happy Thanksgiving! I was working during Thanksgiving and didn’t really do anything else apart from writing and writing and writing. My fingers are practically numb by now, lol. I will be back to full-on blogging soon, I just gotta finish some assignments. If you’re wondering what’s on my wishlist this pandemic shopping season. Well, I’m definitely wishing for these.



Black Friday 2020 Wishlist



  1. Chloe Nile Bracelet Bag – I love this bag, I want this bag (repeat 100000xxx times).
  2. Tom Ford Face Mask – Available at I swear I couldn’t care less about face mask styles and designs. As long as I have a face mask on, that’s good enough for me. But, OMG! Tom Ford face mask in soft pink? You bet I’ll be wearing it even when I’m alone at home, haha.
  3. Saint Laurent Mini Cassandra Satchel – I have officially become YSL obsessed by printing a photo of this gorgeous purse and attaching it to my mood board. There’s just something about them YSL bags that makes me drool.
  4. Anthropologie Gleaming Primrose Mirror – I’m dying to have this in my entryway. This is the ultimate influencer mirror, and it’s sooooo beautiful. lol.
  5. Pat McGrath Labs Mothership VII Eyeshadow (Divine Rose) – I haven’t tried this palette yet and it’s so pretty. I want to wear this every day, even when I’m asleep, lol.
  6. Stuart Weitzman 5050 Boots – What’s it with this gloomy weather and my addiction to Stuart Weitzman boots? I swear this will be the last time I will stare at these boots (not gonna happen).
  7. Venus et Fleur Fleura Vase – Available at Flowers are my quick pick-me-ups in this pandemic, and the gorgeous dreamy floral presentation of these preserved pink roses with a stylish ceramic vase is the perfect definition of chic.
  8. Strathberry Mini East/West Bi-Color Shoulder Bag – OMG! I saw this color at my local Saks and what a beaut! My heart skipped a bit and almost dropped my phone while taking a gazillion snaps of this purse. Thanks to Meghan Markle for introducing this brand, now I can’t get enough of their stuff.
  9. Tom Ford Fucking Fabulous Candle – I don’t care if this candle smells so good or so bad. I hope this will help in making me feel f*cking fabulous again, hahaha, and this will make for a catchy décor in my living room.
  10. Dyson Airwrap Styler – This is probably the coolest hair gadget I’ve ever seen. Dyson applies their vacuum technology in this styler and this sure looks fast and easy to use. No more pandemic hair or Zoombarded hair, lol. The youtube videos are the proofs.


Those are the things on my wishlist for this season. What’s on your list? And what are you secretly wishing for? On a serious side note, I’m seriously hoping and wishing that this pandemic will end. I miss my life, I miss friends, and I miss the world. Keep holding on y’all.

Happy shopping and stay safe.





Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 Top Picks

Hi guys. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 is currently on and today it’s going to be open for everyone until August 5, Monday. I didn’t have a chance to shop during the early access for cardholders because I’ve been busy traveling and had just gotten over my jet lag. I do have some items on wishlist though, and a lot of these items are the ones I’ve been eyeing since last year. Speaking of last year’s sale, I didn’t get to shop that much either, so with this year’s Nordys Sale (which I think has the best selection of on sale items so far), I am definitely purchasing some stuff.


Check out my wishlist and top picks below. The prices shown are the current sale price.



nordstrom anniversary sale 2019 top picks in beauty


1. Bobbi Brown Instant Glow Lip & Highlighter Set (35 USD)


2. Charlotte Tilbury Easy Portable Pocket Sized Eye Palette (55 USD)


3. Giorgio Armani Iconic Glow Set (90 USD)


4. Diptyque Set of 5 Travel Size Candles (55 USD)


5. Nest Grapefruit, Ocean Mist & Sea Salt & Bamboo Votive Candle Trio (30 USD)


6. Tom Ford Eye & Mini Lip Set (88 USD)


7. Beautyblender All That Glitters Makeup Sponge Set (35 USD)


8. Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil Mini Duo (72 USD)


9. NuFace White Trinity Anniversary Facial Toning Kit (217.75 USD)


10. Nars Private Paradise Face Palette (42 USD)





Last year’s sale, I wasn’t able to purchase any Tom Ford items since they got sold out immediately, so, this year, I’m really loving all the TF sets. Also, the Giorgio Armani Iconic Glow Set is TDF, and if you’re a fan of scented candles, the Diptyque Set of 5 Travel Candles is such a good deal. If beauty and skincare tools are your thing, I’ve been eyeing the NuFace White Facial Toning Kit which has always been pricey but it seems really good for toning the face. Additionally, who couldn’t resist the Nars Private Paradise Face Palette? You’ll get a contour, highlighter, and blush in one single palette, along with shades that match to your skintone.


Not really sure what’s my criteria in choosing the items below. I do notice that a lot of the items in the Nordstrom Sale are mostly wardrobes that are meant for Fall. While that’s also nice, for me, I think I don’t really plan to buy my clothes in preparation for the upcoming season. I have more of a “buy now, wear whenever” approach to clothing, LOL.


nordstrom anniversary sale 2019 review


1. Vince Camuto Cabbage Rose Toile Sleeveless Chiffon Blouse (52.90 USD)


2. BLANKNYC Suede Mini Skirt (64.90 USD)


3. Caslon Long Sleeve Crewneck Tee (18.90 USD)


4. Halogen Check Blazer (89.90 USD)


5. Thread & Supply Wubby Fleece Pullover (49.90 USD)





I’ve always been curious about the Thread & Supply Fleece Pullover. I don’t own one. It seems really comfy and I think I could use it for whenever the temps go low. The BLANKNYC Suede Mini Skirt is really nice.

6. All In Favor Wrap Top (25.90 USD)


7. ASTR The Label Lace Midi Dress (58.90 USD)


8. Halogen Ribbed Sweater (29.90 USD)


9. Halogen Tie-Waist Twill Pants (65.90 USD)


10. Spanx Thinstincts Mid Thigh Shorts (38.50 USD)


11. Spanx Power Short Mid Thigh Shaper (23.90 USD)


12. Halogen Single Breasted Blazer (85.90 USD)


13. Something Navy Flecked Crewneck Sweater (49.90 USD)






Now, there’s a lot of things on this list that I love. First of all, the Nordys Sale is the best time to buy Spanx at a cheaper price. These things are useful to smoothen the lumps and the bumps. The Halogen Twill Pants seem really chic, and I’ve got to try that ASTR The Label Midi Dress that everyone’s talking about. I’m just not quite sure about the sizing of that dress though. Also, not sure if I could pull off that All In Favor Wrap Top.

20. Rails Hunter Plaid Shirt (99.90 USD)


21. Rebecca Minkoff Jody Croc Embossed Leather Circle Crossbody Bag (185.90 USD)





Last Winter, I was dreaming of Teddy Coats. This year, I’m eyeing that BLANKNYC Faux Fur Teddy Coat. I also love the Rails Clothing because they’re all so comfy and that Whitney Print Shirt is giving me a laid-back Summer vibe. I also saw the Rebecca Minkoff Jody Croc Circle Crossbody bag IRL and it’s really sleek and stunning.


And that comprises my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 Wishlist and Top Picks. Are you shopping for this year’s sale? What’s on your list?
