Let me kick off this post by just sharing some fab news which arrived in my inbox this morning.
ASOS is having a 50% mid-season sale!
What this means for my shopping kakis out there is… its time to start checking out those items that have been sitting in your wishlist basket and add more!
What this means for me (which is even better news) is that I can finally get started on my maternity shopping for the upcoming festive season in advanced! As a huge shopper of asos, this is probably one of the best sales I’ve ever come across!
And the cherry on top has got to be free shipping worldwide, right to your doorstep. No more having to fight with crowds in the malls and lack of variety 😉
Speaking of crowds…I actually got pushed & shoved by 2 passengers on the train today while on the way home. I was peeved at their sheer inconsideration because I was showing a very obvious belly (I know this because 2 colleagues asked if I was expecting after seeing me in the dress) while standing up to make way for them & their silly bags/laptop carriers and they had the morality to actually push themselves against my belly that I was forced to get myself out of that space. Urgh. I’ve heard & witness people pretending to sleep so that they wouldn’t have to give up their seats and it wasn’t like I was demanding for one. But pushing & shoving a preggers? Oh come on! What has graciousness of society become?
So back to shopping. Managed to pick up more comfy slacks from Uniqlo (I really enjoy their affordable range…not to mention their free alteration service which only takes 1/2 an hour!) today after realizing that despite getting a belly band over the weekend, it still wasn’t as comfy as having elastic around a pregnant waist.
In work news, it’s my 2nd last week here (oh how time flies) and just when I’m getting used to a routine…I’m going to have to create another really soon. I just hope I won’t be sleeping as much as I crave for when I’m at work and do something more productive instead. Learning how to cook some proper western meal perhaps? Bake cookies? Festive parties planning…maybe?? Hmm, we’ll see.
