Run my dear minions run! I’m a complete sucker for free shipping promotions given the exorbitant cost of international postage these days. Shopbop is currently running a free international shipping offer when you spend US$100 or more. I’m glad they extended it on overseas orders when free shipping is only available to the US.
Although the offer is valid until June 30 only, I’d take advantage of it NOW before they deplete their Spring/Summer 2009 merchandise.
The Lanvin shoes I ordered online from Luisa Via Roma finally arrived earlier this week with no delays/taxes/etc. Strange eh? I’m starting to think Filipino
customs pick their prey randomly from a hat. In any case, I’m so happy! I love these blue boxes of love.
Good thing I bought this a few weeks ago when the euro-to-dollar (€322 = US$439 including shipping)
exchange rate was good. Have you been keeping track of the exchange
rates lately? It’s insane!!!! No wonder Barney’s or Aloharag charge around $650 for the same pair. Yikes.
Heard this on the radio earlier on my way back home from the mall. Air France flight AF 447 from Rio de Janeiro to Paris disappeared from the radar while flying over the Atlantic Ocean. NY Times reported there are 216 passengers on board with 12 crew members.
According to CNN, Air France 447 reported electrical problems before it lost contact with ground staff.
I don’t know about you but I ALWAYS get chills running down my spine every time I hear unpleasant news involving planes because of my fear of flying. I shit you not. I get these weird thoughts in my head that one day it’s not lung cancer that’s gonna eject my existence from the face of the planet but some sort of plane accident. *knocks on wood*. I hope not! I really do want to be old. I don’t wanna die young. I wanna die in my sleep when I’m 85 years old.
In Chanel couture, of course.
I hope it’s just a minor malfunction and nothing catastrophic.
