Okay, this is going to be my last shopping from Victoria’s Secret since I only have three holiday rewards card to use, I can say I am done. I hope!
In this batch, I want to get as many items as possible and pay less out of pocket after using my $20 off $40 holiday card. Thanks to one of the members on FB -VS Addicts group for the scenario. She gave me idea what to get albeit I really wanted to get the legging also, but nahhh I can buy leggings somewhere else for a lot cheaper.
Shirts and leggings bundled price is $30, you can buy both and add something to your order to make it $40, or three shirts for $11 each. I loaded three PINK boyfriend jersey shirts in 3 different colors and a $7 mist in my cart and checked out. I guess, I win?
I used a free ship code on orders $40 or more. You can try any of the following and see what works for you.
Buy your PINK bundle here.
How do you like scoring a good deal like $1.29 a pair Victoria’s Secret undies? I love how we can buy stuff we wear everyday for a lot less. Read on so you’ll know how I did it.
Today, angel card holders can get first access to 10/$35 panties on either Victoria’s Secret or PINK. Buy 12 pairs of those totaling to $42 and use your $20 off $40 purchase Holiday Reward Card and enter the code: BONUSANGEL or ACSHIPF17 for free shipping!
How I came down to just $1.29 each pair is, I used my $10 gift card that I have been saving to avail this very nice panties sale. I am a happy shopper right now and couldn’t ask for a better deal than this.
I don’t need more new pairs but of course, I have a little sister and little girls that could use some of these in the future. Stocking up on undies isn’t bad, is it?

Going to the city nowadays is such an exciting thing to do for me. We’ve only moved here over four months ago and I still have not quite adjusted to our new country life. One of the things I dreaded moving far from the city is the availability of the foods I love to eat.
But anyways, since it was a Thanksgiving holiday last week, we had a chance to go to visit our other house in Fort Worth and shopped for goodies I so long to eat. I did not get to buy everything I wanted to buy due to the lack of space in the car yet I spent over a hundred dollars for all of this.
This should make my tummy happy for several weeks until I run out of stocks. Going to the Asian market was heaven to me, it is where I can find everything I want to eat and cook. Thankfully, my husband was eager to drive us to the city.
You know the feeling when someone surprised you with a gift you didn’t expect, much more do the kind deed to you? I was just beyond surprised when a friend just left this beautiful Juicy Couture watch in my car one time when I dropped her off in her home.
After having lunch with the other girls, we ended up just the two of us shopping in a store and we looked in a store glass display several items and pointed out cute stuff that’s in it. One that caught my attention is this watch but did not even think of buying it myself since I don’t need a new watch these days. Little did I know, she had something in mind for me. I knew she bought it for we checked out the same register together but it was really a surprise that she bought it for me.
I am beyond touched by her and I feel happy, that someone so generous thought about me that day… thank you so much ate, will forever treasure this gift from you!
I got me this beautiful set for only $28 including tax and shipping. It was on sale two weeks ago for $40 a set PINK NATION members only. The tote it came with is beautiful with zipped top closure and was FREE with the use of a code. Supposedly I can only get this tote if I purchased $75 but now, it pays to be vigilant on glitches, use codes for items that won’t cost you anything at all.
Aside from getting the free tote, my order also came with a $20 off a $40 purchase which will start end of November. Looking forward to paying off my credit card so I will not be burdened paying so much when the redeeming time is here.
But for now, I am happy with my baseball tee set and pants. They are really soft and comfortable perfect for cold weather days.
When you are away from your birthplace and you miss home, there is not much you can do about it. Philippines is on the other side of the globe and I can only visit every two years. Going there takes a lot of preparation and good savings in order to avail the said vacation.
What I can do to ease the homesickness a little bit is cook foods and somehow think that I am in the Philippines while munching on the Filipino foods I love.
We call it, ” comfort foods” for it is with this foods we satisfy our cravings and fill our stomachs. Here are a few dishes and delicacies I can very well cook at home and feed my family with awesome goodness Filipino comfort foods.
Chopsuey, a Filipino dish that comprise of mainly vegetables, some cut up meat either pork, liver and or chicken. It is such a palatable dish that everybody can enjoy, of course this dish won’t be complete without quail eggs ( missing in the picture, I did not have it available when I cooked this food), young corn and a little bit of corn starch to thicken the sauce.
Lumpia or eggroll. You can use any kind of shredded vegetables, ground pork, chicken or beef, seasonings and bell pepper. If you are vegan, you can replace the meat with tofu and enjoy the same taste eggrolls supposed to taste. The one on the right is what we call “suman malagkit” or glutinous rice cooked with coconut milk,white sugar, ginger and a pinch of salt to make it and wrap in banana leaves, steam for 45 minutes as the final step to cook the rice some more. It is a delicacy almost all Filipinos love and commonly prepared during special occasions because of the extensive labor this requires.
We can also make “suman cassava” by using grated yucca root instead of glutinous rice. It is a labor of love and therefore, should be eaten slow and enjoyed every bite in order to savor this delicious comfort food.
Pork or calf liver is known for its chewy texture and this is what my mother used to give me growing up when I looked pale. She’d give it to me half grilled and when you slice it, you can see the blood dripping onto the plate.
It is rich in iron and known to help people with iron deficiency.
When shopping is in your favor. Like this Pink Nation baseball tee and gym pants, a set that was only $40 for Pink members. Snagged this deal with a zipped top gorgeous Victoria’s Secret tote and a $20 award certificate for $40 purchase. I paid a little over $28 for all plus it was free shipping. I love Victoria’s Secret, I got freebies and discounts from them that is why no matter other people criticize their “cheapo” bras and products, I’d still buy from them.
For me, it is not the brand or how expensive your under wears are, it is how you wear and wash them. Anyway, before I get out of topic, this set I am looking forward to wear during a long flight to my homeland in several months. I choose this outfit for it is really soft and comfortable, suitable for long period of sitting down in the airplane.
I chose XS size for top and bottom, they fit perfectly for me. As you know, PINK clothing runs big for this Asian girl. I am glad XS fits me.
Shopping for new coats online wasn’t in my mind but then I keep receiving this notifications from Sears in my email. When I looked at it, it is a whooping $25 in free cash points. Who am I to refuse?
Looking at my girls, they are growing up so fast and for that they need clothing appropriate for their age. Since Winter is approaching, I just thought a new good coat to keep them warm while going to school would be nice. I am not gonna give them the coats once they arrive, I’ll wrap them with Christmas wrappers so they’ll have something to open on Christmas Day.
Thanks to Sears for this awesome free cash point. As you can see, I am also earning $5.13 for next shopping. A whooping of $98 in savings for this order today. Woot! Woot!
Baking is not for me, I shall say. That’s a fact. I have tried a few times before baking some of the Filipino breads but I messed it up so I am not doing it again.
However, one thing I can do which I am good at is baking banana bread. This time, I made it perfectly. I craved for rich chocolate cake but I don’t have it available, I did not want to drive 12 miles just to get it at the grocery store. What I do instead, bake it at home.
Craving satisfied for a chocolate cake, though mine isn’t rich but it’s good and a bit healthier.
Here’s the recipe that I keep in handy, although not all in the list of ingredients I followed.
2 1/2 flour
2 cups sugar
2 tsps. hershey’s chocolate powder
4 large eggs
2 tsps. cornstarch
2 tsps. baking soda
1/2 cup sour cream
4-5 ripe bananas (mashed up)
1 tsp. salt
2 sticks melted butter
2 tsps. pure vanilla extract
2 cups walnuts
Mix all dry ingredients except sugar! Add it to the wet ingredients. Use mixer to get the cake texture of your batter. Bake at 320 F for 1:20 minutes.
OPTIONAL: add nuts of your choice.
