New recipes to try --

Sticky Toffee Pudding in a Jar
-- I love the idea of ice cream and caramel sauce.  Am not too sold on dates.

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake
-- I've only made cheesecake once and it wasn't a complete success.  It was more cheese than cake.  Maybe the 2nd time's the charm?

Such a lovely satchel! --

Our Cambridge Satchel arrived in the mail over the weekend!

When I was ordering this through Schu, I was having a hard time picking the size and color (because the colors are all so, so beautiful!) --

We ended up getting the smallest (11") in green and I think I made the right choice!

(I keep saying "we" because this is actually a belated gift for my sister who lives in crossbody bags.)

I couldn't resist taking it out for a "test drive" and -- I really enjoyed it.

It isn't for me, though -- all it could fit was my wallet (big-a** wallet) and my phone.  It's perfect for my sister who doesn't really bring around a lot of stuff.

I could imagine giving this to Anya when she's entering high school.  (I'd love for her to hold it and smell it and know that this is a bag with a story -- and I know this bag will live long enough for her to use it because it is made of genuine leather.  It just needs me and my sister to take care of it. ^_^)

Thank you to Schu for facilitating my order.  (Great customer service!  A boon for people who live outside of Metro Manila.)

Consolidating myself --

I decided to delete my other blog Little Temptations (littletemptations.blogspot.com) --

I was finding it harder and harder to decide whether to post on this blog or on that blog so I decided to just consolidate.  (To my Multiply friends, apologies for the 27-blog entry deluge.)

I realized something (kinda good) -- while it seemed that I had a lot of wants in my head, when I put it down to paper (and seriously think about it), it dawned on me that I didn't really want or need a lot of them.

I think it's nice to embrace and accept our impulses and it's even nicer to indulge ourselves now and then.  ^_^
