Target Great Finds! :)

I still can't get over how pretty the life size dollhouse of Target :) As in the laundry room is one of my favorites! :) when we have our own house na, eto talaga ang peg ko for our own laundry room. wicker baskets and all :) :)

Anyway, one of my cheap thrills is surfing the Target Website, with their new line Threshold, the target addict in me is going crazy over their website!

Here are some of their Threshold products I'm crazy about

 I'm so in love with the prints!
 Love the white and the design! :)
Love the clock perfect for halls :)

I'm still sticking to my white plates but the pop of color are so refreshing :)

 The yellow spread is so sunny but it in a classic taste :)
 My secret addiction for sunburst mirror :)
 I saw something similar from Mandaue Foam, kaya lang sold na :(
 Cute Serving Plates!
I love the wood and metal combination :)

 another secret addiction: lampshades :)
 Remember in the 80s, our moms have the brass set of animals?
 Bec I grew up in a wall to wall carpet home...
Carpets makes me feel I'm home :)
Kung mura lang bumili sa US and padala thru balikbayan box...... bka puro target charges sa Mr.Panda (hindi pala sakin naka - charge haha)

Do you want to see a life-size DollHouse? :)

One of my secret and cheap happiness is surfing websites like target. I'm so in love with their home stuff and how affordable they are! Imagine, my excitement when I read that they made a real-life dollhouse at NY Grand Central Terminal!  :) :)  The two story Threshold Doll House opened last week at the Vanderbilt Hall

OMG! Droollllll!!!!
From the front door to the laundry area! Totally Adorable! :) I grabbed some pics from to share it with you guys. My favorite shots :)

Don't you just love the mailbox? :) and from the picture posted above, we can see the adorable bath tub shower curtains :)

Love the laundry room! with the baskets and white shelf :)  and the terrace! parang ang sarap mag coffee and read books :)

I love the different patterns of the beddings and they still look good together! plus the picture frames display :)

The odd shape of this corner made it perfect for a mini work area :)  This brown cabinet is love at first sight (the white dinnerware looks so familiar! hihi) and I love the gold animals!

Pillowcases! opo, ako ay isang pillowcases hoarder/addict hihi :)

Sana may life-size dollhouse din by Mandaue Foam or Rustans hihi :)

Click the video for the making of the dollhouse :)

I'm itching to buy online!!! Don't you just love affordable home stuffs especially if you have a low EQ like me with interiors? lol. :)

Quick Shopping for the Week! :)

This week is a busy week for the Mrs. Panda, workload, family duties and friend duties hihi :)

Went to MOA for a baby shower for a close high school friend, I don't usually go to MOA I find it too magulo for me and the washrooms! laging blockbuster ang pila and wala din sila pay cr ;(

After the baby shower at Gumbo's (na nahilo ako sa paghahanap) we headed back to the parking area but naligaw kami, then I saw Uniqlo! ( the last time I went to MOA is Uniqlo Opening hihi)

After 15 minutes, Mr.Panda and I were happy with our Uniqlo loot :) :)

Yesterday naman, we decided to have a Thurs-date. To avoid the crazy Friday dinner lines, after our comfort food dinner at Recipes :) we were happy to see na open na si cotton-on sa greenbelt! but maliit lang pala sya hehe. Mas ok pa din sa fort branch which is walking distance from our home. Mr. Panda got his comfy shirts 2 for P800.00 only! and I saw a three slim-belt pack for P399.00 lang! On our way to the parking area, we passed by Charles and Keith, and I saw on display this very pretty wedge! Mr.Panda told me it looked really nice and slimming on my feet, so ayun na ang magic word "slimming" haha :)

Siguro mananahimik muna kami sa bahay this weekend :) :P

This week's Loot :)
Very Summer-y!

Cotton On Loot :)

Great Find Belts!

Uniqlo Jeans (which hubby said really matibay), shorts and pink polo shirt :)

Yes, mickey mouse and star wars fan ako! :)

This white l/s polo made me look slimmer!and sale pa sya at 790 bucks :)

And napadaan pala ako ng forever21, I bought this bec it looks real hihi :)

How about you guy? What are your latest great finds? :)
