I admit I used to be a shopaholic in the past. I buy mostly clothes, shoes and toiletries. To the point that I have to hide what I buy because my mom would scold me. But I have already managed to control it. L have learned my lesson the hard way.I have realized that money is important and instead of spending it I should save it for rainy days.

Yes! Most of them are shoes! Any pair will do as long as they are beautiful, comfortable and good in quality. I love my pairs from Aldo. I recently passed by a store in one of the malls here where they're locally made but good in quality. I was just with my boyfriend at that time so I didn't get a pair. He will say, "Shoes again?!" Well I'm still gong back there. And just a while ago in the same mall I purchased two Havaianas( I think I now have 10, if only i didn't lose some of them). Leather bags are good buy for me. I like the ones from VNC(Malaysian brand) Nine west, Aldo, and Zara. I also buy dress which I will not use in a few months or a year. I'll only find myself wearing that in a certain occasion. But still I use it and a good buy for me! =) Happy shopping!

I don't have a shopping addiction, but I do like to spend money on makeup and hair care items. I try to seriously limit my spending on those items now, though. I don't have a whole lot of income coming in at this time, so I have felt the need to be pinching some pennies when it comes to that stuff.
