oh yeah, I’m looking at the sun

oh yeah I'm looking at the sunShades, Punya. Blue blouseDEI. Lace tank. Jeans,  Jag. Brown leather bag, Celine. Necklace and bracelet from my mom’s dresser.

It’s looking to be an extremely hot summer, but thank goodness for the human invention called the sunglasses.

The other day I was at People are People looking at sunglasses and fell in love with a pair. It was rather pricey, though, so I put it down and decided to buy it next time (if it was still there). About an hour later as I was browsing the new stuff at Punya, I saw an almost identical pair… except the hue was blue instead of black, and it was half the price.

That’s the best “except” I’ve written in a while, yes? Yes! It fits nicely on my nosebridge, and my eyelashes don’t reach it.  Oh, thank God! That’s always been my problem with shades and glasses. The one down side of having long eyelashes 🙁

Needless to say, I bought the shades. It costs P150, in case anybody’s wondering.

If ever you find yourself in Congressional Avenue, try to swing by Circle C. And if ever you swing by Circle C, go to the second floor, find the Gallery, and look for a little nook called Punya. They don’t have a banner, I think, but it looks like this:

Good stuff, yes? I saw the stall today while I was in search of a necklace to go with my plain old shirts. I found exactly what I needed with the help of Ruby,  the girl watching the stall. I wasn’t able to ask her if she actually owned the place or not, but I do know that she can make necklaces for you while you wait. They can be as low as P80, depending on the pendant and the kind of chain/string to use.

She makes the necklaces. And also wears them.

(Also, she likes photography, so she happily let me take photos in the stall. She even let me try out her Olympus DSLR. I can’t remember what model it was. Haha!)

I only got a really simple necklace, but they’ve got tons of other stuff. From earthy to metal, from goth to bordering on tweetums, from big rocks to playful plastic. I’ll definitely go back there. And if you’re in the area, try to visit, too! 🙂
