Satchels saved us.

Best Blogger Tips
TGIF! What better way to spend the weekend than spending it with family?  Throughout the years, I've managed to create band of friends and eventually transforming them into a loving family.  It's very comforting to think that this bond we have is stronger because this family was born out of choice.  This is not a complete family picture though, we have special friends we missed yesterday.  However that did not stop us to accomplish a photo shoot with the new members of our tribe.  

I'd like to dedicate this blog to the reasons why we giggle most of the time, why we can't hide the smile on our faces, why our hearts skip a beat...  Meet our new sweethearts, our SATCHELS! Oh yes, we have this silly infatuation on these lovelies.  We met them online, I can't forget that crazy night we splurged on shopping (oh-oh).  When it was finally delivered, we lost every remaining pound of levelheadedness.  So I want to spread this hysteria to all those bag lovers out there.  I can't forget the time that I wrote a blog about the satchels I've been eyeing for a long time - and I've got tons of feedback about it.  One of which was my brother's - JM is super straight (LOL!).  He was just asking me about it because he plans to give his girlfriend (a bag hag) one as a gift.  What caught his attention was the  Proenza Schouler pouch leather and when I told him how much it costs, he was cursing like hell.  So as I promised, here are some satchels that won't hurt your savings much.  

Our day started with late lunch.  The normal eating like a pig, catching up and non-stop babbling for about and hour and a half.  Oh my, how we missed those killer prawns from Jimmy's.  I really wish I can pig out everyday.  After eating, we stopped for coffee and took photos.  I just love this day.

Our faces before eating. Blank faces means we're super hungry.

Choosing which bags to use.
Only my friends can pull of walking glamorously under a scorching 38 °C temperature.
Debate! This bag or this bag? LOL!
Mahangin ba sa labas?
I can't understand why my legs are crossed while chatting.
This is cute! Small - Medium - Large
