You know how, when you find a special piece, you heart starts racing? Well, that was exactly how it was when I saw this coat hanging in the 'New Arrivals' part of H&M. It was that cocoon shape I've been lusting about, made of stiff tweed material, and that speckled salt n' pepper effect that I loved. Yes, I know I practically say this about everything I buy, but with basics it's different. I'd rather wait and take my time on pieces I will probably wear forever. So, in my hands were some sale stuff - donut sweater, some sale leggings, and what not - and I put them all down. I had found my piece. Everything else was inconsequential (tee hee, feel free to call me nerd)

It's so damn freezing nowadays, and grey, and did I mention freeeeeeezing? I wanted to keep it simple for an early valentine with my boy. Yep, we're both working on the day of love, so we celebrated Valentine's four days earlier. I'm still a little under the weather, but a simple dinner and some gifts were enough. We had Japanese BBQ Buffet at this place in Taipa, which got us so stuffed we decided to skip the movie lest we fell asleep. Oh, and we finally bought those matching shoes we've been talking about forever, you'll see them soon enough, heheheh...;) Finally, a 'House of Cards' marathon at home. Anyone else hooked to this show? They had us at Kevin Spacey (we're both fans).

Before I say goodbye for the time being, how awesome is this lipcolor right? My good friend recommended it, it's the Maybelline Lip Polish. Somewhere between a gloss and a stick, it's non-sticky (hate that about glosses), and super long lasting. This was by far my favorite shade, but they do have reds, pinks and nudes and I want them all. Now, you know I'm not much of a makeup fan so trust me on this - it's good.

How are you spending the day of hearts, sweeties?

See you really soon,

- Che
