Things i learn from 8 days

I read 8 days religiously. Even when i'm in Ipoh my mom sends the mags up to me.And no wonder too since it keeps me updated on everything entertainment and nourishes me with a wealth of unconventional information.

I was flipping through some past copies and found interesting nuggets of information i wanted to share but forgot.

First up bags.
I have such a fetish for bags as Kit Chan says.
So what better way to suffice the craving than visiting these sites where you can rent 4 figure sum bags for as little as S$49.95 a month? check out for these lovelies.

Balenciaga Giant Slim in Bublegum

Miu miu Pale Pink Coffer Bag

Marc Jacobs Plum Bruna Quilted Tote

Bottega Veneta Gold Clutch

Bottega Veneta Marmo Roma Shopper

Balenciaga Giant Part Time in Bublegum

I think Be-a-fashionista is the easiest to browse. The other sites you might want to check out are and for your bag fix.

Next up jewelry and all other gifts from boyfriends.
Check out
Depending on how you see it, this is either a site for cheap jewelry and wedding bands or a place to buy bad karma.

Go have a look even if just to read about bad break up stories as each item comes with an accompanying write up on why the item is sold there.

Here's a sample of some of the stuff on sale.

This ring is going for $700

(direct excerpts from the site)

Jewelry Description:

This ½ ct. t.w. three-stone diamond band is a delicate expression of the love you both share. Set in gleaming 14K white gold, this beautiful ring is hard to resist. I also have a 1yr warranty. the ring is 7 1/2. Jeweler will resize for free!!!! Ring was originally purchased for $1,000.

How it got there:

We'll call him John, for starters. At first, everyting was like a fairy tale...but then came the drinking. I love him to death, but I couldn't marry an alcoholic. He got arrested for a month for failing a drug test( he was in the military) The night before he knew he was going to jail. So what did he do? Party with his friends! He didnt come home till 8 the next day. That right there told me that I deserved better. Now, I have this beautiful ring that hurts me everytime I look at it. Help me move on!!!

This pretty thing is also on sale for $4000

Jewelry Description:

Brilliantly distinctive, a bold 14K white gold bridal set.
3/4 ct. pear diamond shines at the heart of the engagement ring, framed by round diamond accents that serve to expand on the center stone\'s own brilliance. Channel-set round diamonds line the engagement ring\'s shank and the matching wedding band, bringing the total diamond weight to 2 cts.

No scoop on how it got there though.

Nice ring ya? Going for $110

The story behind the ring:(copy and paste from the site)

I will give the short story ...with the man 2 years he proposed in February...I accepted. Ring had to be sized to 9.5 ...(yea I pop my knuckles) And never wore the ring once. It is a wedding set. Coming with the band. I dont know much about the stats but It has a cross on each side of the stone. Then on the band it has two crosses as well. Let me know if you have any questions , I will try my best to answer. He dumped me in an email and I am still heartbroken. Its only been 7 weeks so I need to rid myself of all reminders.

They even have non-jewelry stuff

This Lv checkbook wallet (unsure about authenticity) is only going for $80. Good deal if you can get over the story behind it tho.

The Scoop (from the site):

Boyfriend and college sweetheart of 4 years cheated on me with his ex gf while I was out of town. We were SOOO close to get married it was ridiculous - guess its better that i know him for what he truly is (a jerk) before making that commitment. Now its time to get rid of anything and everything that came from him!

Jewelry Description:

This is a Louis Vuitton Damier Checkbook wallet. I think it is a replica but its a really good replica. I never actually used the wallet. Its been sitting in the box that it came in. Its a beautiful wallet! it has an area to put bills, clear id spot, and 4 credit card slots as well as a zipper compartment for change. It also has a removable checkbook holder that has slots for 10 credit cards. Its a beautiful wallet - it just reminds me of him and I really need to just forget him.

OMG there are so many weird but strangely practical sites around!

And there are lots more interesting stuff i learnt from that tiny mag but i'm too lazy to dig out the mags and look up the references.Can't wait for my 8 days every week~
