The Muji post and the giveaway sneak peek!

So, okay. Ever since it officially announced that it would open its first shop here in Manila and ever since my friend brought this especially clean and cute notebook with dots instead of lines, I've been a fan of Muji. 

Much like Chuvaness who adores the store and has probably decorated her house according to everything in that store, I too think that furnishing my future home with everything there is the dream. (I need only to make lots of money in the future!) But apart from that, I have patronized their shoes and, more importantly, their paper products and office supplies. Well, everyone who's known me for my whole life knows I have an insane weird fetish for notebooks anyway, so I had it coming when I came across their stuff! I even asked a friend who went to Singapore once to buy me one of their notebooks when there wasn't a branch here yet, but she couldn't find the store.

Heck, even during this year's Valentine's Day, Joseph gave me not the typical bouquet of flowers + chocolates, but the white dotted notebook with the softest of pages, a mechanical pencil and a cute colorful fat pen from Muji! Nyahahaha. Yes, I'm a bit of a dork that way. But he says he adores me for it. :">

Today I went to SM Mall of Asia's SMX Convention Center for PhilConstruct 2011 (trying to do a little bit of research for thesis HUHU). Since the new Muji branch opened recently over there, I decided to pay a visit and check out the 2012 planners they had. 

When I got out though, finally, I ended up purchasing more than I had initially planned. 

My planner for the following year! YAY. I'm so happy I didn't end up deciding to collect stickers for the Starbucks planner, pretty as it is.
I bought a red double-tip pen to go with it.
The perfect layout! This is my favorite planner layout. My 2008 Hello Kitty planner was something like this. :">
And as if a planner wasn't enough, I bought a teeny desk calendar. I couldn't resist.
A teeny cahier-like notebook with blank pages and a purple double-tip pen. 
Yup, that's right. You read correctly. My store is celebrating its first anniversary this December, and I'm already in the process of  collecting sponsors for a celebratory giveaway! :) I have nine awesome stores as sponsors so far, and each of them is contributing one lovely item to the prize package. That doesn't even include what I'm giving away, but at least you know that the items in the picture above are just two of the possibly fourteen prizes I'll be giving away in total to one lucky winner.

[EDIT] And lookie! The first item from one of the sponsors finally arrived this morning. Teehee. It's from Angela of Fashion Code 101 and it's very pretty. :">

Just a teaser. Fufufufufu. But it's very pretty.
YAY! So mark the date! :) Next week, I'll be introducing the rest of the sponsors, too, and giving more sneak peeks of the items up for grabs!

So don't forget to join! It's going to be awesome.
