Forever 21 Now Open at the SM Aura Premier.

While everyone went gaga over Sarah Jessica Parker at the SM Aura Premier yesterday, I just wanted to shop.

Don't get me wrong.   I would love to have a photo with her but I knew it'd probably be impossible since everyone wants the same thing.  Plus, I came from a meeting somewhere far away and by the time I got to SM Aura, SJP already left.

The next best thing?  Forever 21!

Thanks Maxx Magalona! :)

They had me at 'exclusive shopping'.  I hate waiting and falling in line.  The P500 ($12.50) discount was a bonus, too!

There's just one problem with being given 'exclusive shopping' time.  Since there are no lines, there's more time to shop around.  Oh, my poor wallet.

Care to take a guess what's inside my shopping bags?

Beach wear!  I don't care if it's raining.  I'm going on a beach trip for my birthday!

Here's a closer look at my hat and sunglasses.  I buy a new hat before every trip, not for anything else but because my hat gets destroyed in my luggage by the time I get back.  Don't you just the love the friendship bracelets around this one?  I hope I get to take care of it until I come back home.

I also bought a separate case for my sunnies so it won't get scratched while inside my beach bag. 

It's all patterns and neons in the two-storey Forever 21 store.   Here are the other things that I got. T was also able to shop since there's a section for men.

So, back to SM Aura.. 

Since I wasn't planning on blogging about it, I didn't go around nor did I take lots of photos.  I seriously just wanted to shop.  But here are a few pictures that I took.

Topshop and Topman.

Suite Blanco.

This girl is a talking hologram.  And they're all over SM Supermarket.  Kind of creepy if all the lights were switched off, don't you think?

T and I found this cute.  Peppermint Kids Salon and Spa Boutique.

SM Aura Premier is set to open today.  Where is it located?  If you're on the C5 coming from the north, you'll see this huge white building on your right.  Just opposite Serendra.

So if you're not really headed here tomorrow, I suggest you steer clear of the C5 entrance to Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.  It's going to be one heck of a traffic jam especially since it's a Friday.

Forever 21 Round 2 tomorrow? I got another invite.  Hmmmmm.

Thank you baby girl Tin Gamboa (aka Suzy from Magic 899)! :)

Just a cheesy side note for T:

Thank you for driving me today to my meetings and for waiting while I shopped at Forever 21 even if you weren't feeling well.  

Thank you! :)

On that note, have a great weekend everyone!  TGIF!

    RIZALENIO. But a lot of people are complaining about it. Legalities and I guess traffic ;)

    AYEN. Got the invites through friends :) Re: how different it is from other SM Malls, I think they're going for a "high end" thing with SM Aura. Although they do have the usual stores and food chains pa din.

    TAN TAN. You're welcome! :)
