Unboxing the Zalora Box

Like I've said in my Mother's Day post, I was happily spending the special day with my two kiddos. Taking care both of them all alone without anyone to ask favor to, like when they started to cry and demand something from me at the same time. Nevertheless, I survived the day like all Supermoms with a very rewarding feeling. 

X and Z coordinated with me and went to bed early, so I had time to sit in front of the PC and did my Mother's Day online shopping. I deserve something for me that day, because hubby wasn't able to buy anything for me yet. (I'm still expecting... pag makuha na daw nya overtime claim nya..)

In my wishlist for months already is a hand bag with floral design, I've been searching for it and finally I spotted one from a local brand. I saw it on display already in CLN boutique in Ayala Mall but at regular price, I was hoping that the same item is available in SM branch and probably on sale, unfortunately the CLN boutique in SM CDO is already close or maybe transferred. My other option is online. And one of the best site for fashion finds is ZALORA. I found it there bearing the same price tag with that displayed in the store. I hesitated to add it on my cart yet, I waited for a discount coupon to land in my email. Sayang naman ang discount..

On May 9, two days before Mother's Day this email from ZALORA landed on my inbox.

This is it! I have to get it na!

On the night of Mother's Day I finally bought it using the discount code of MDAY15 for a 15% discount at minimum of P2500 worth of purchase + free shipping nationwide.

Yesterday, a day and a half after, the signature ZALORA box landed on our front door. With my overflowing excitement I hurriedly open the box when I arrived home last night.

Inside the box is my most awaited floral handbag from CLN.

An 12 x 4.5 x 10.5 inches (LxWxH) floral printed faux leather satchel, with two tote handles, twistlock closure, signature logo metal tag, gold toned hardware and an adjustable shoulder strap that you can attached if wanted to be worn as a shoulder bag.  

For me to avail the 15% discount I added a bottle of China Glaze nail polish (to reach the P2500 mark), the 4th bottle of the brand to land in my nail lacquers' stash. And here's more, inside the box also is a bar of Dove moisturizing soap as freebie + a discount coupon that I can use in my next purchase, which I doubt if I can use it.

This morning, I asked hubby to get a photo of me wearing my new bag. I edited and removed my face in the photo, to get a clearer view of the subject. hihihi

That's it! I finally unboxed my second purchase from Zalora and I must say they are indeed reliable. winks*

How about you? We're you able to buy something for yourself on Mother's Day?
