Holiday season is here...

Holiday season is hereee...
Yaaaay...

The season of joy :) at 

What a festive month! 
Well, whenever you go here in NYC, burst of red, green, silver and gold are popping up here and there. Blinking lights from trees and windows, piles of glittery colorful gift boxes, and tons of chocolates, candi canes and cookies are such a feast to my eyes.

And although we don't celebrate Christmas, but we do love to see the joyful spirit everywhere. Besides, our neighbors and the owner of the house we've been renting so far always spare their time and give us gifts although we said that we're not celebrating it. So, sharing and caring are indeed the values that we hold dear regardless of your religions or faith.

Aaand.. I got to admit that I really enjoy the sale. 
Big, big sales almost on everything, almost everywhere.

Don't get me wrong.. 
Of course holiday is not about it. But if you can get an extra bonus of saving while you focus and share more attention to your families, friends and people around you, why not :). 

So, one of the 'rituals' that I do before going rampantly buying things is window shopping. Yuuup.. Window shopping! 
I guess I read it somewhere that window shopping is the favorite pastime of all New Yorkers.

Isn't it fun? Or you think it's dangerous as you might be tempted to get things that you don't actually need? To me, it works the other way around. I tend to be more determined in buying certain products (that I have been meaning to buy :)) after strolling around those department stores and shops. I know, it's time consuming and tiring as well, but whenever I have time, I will sneak to those places. It's a like a wonderful intermezzo for me as well.

And you know what.. Those department stores always come up with such a glamorous Christmas decorations. With some fine themes as well, including Peanuts the Movie :).

Wanna see some of them? 
Come and take a closer look.



Macy's is always serious with their xmas decoration

Love the movie? me, too :)

the standard glittering trees ..in my favorite colors :)

Saks Fifth Avenue knows how to build a Winter palace :)
tempted? you're not the only one :)

And I do it online too :). 
Nowadays, who wouldn't do it. 
I gotta say my hubby is even addicted to it as I keep catching him finishing one or two transactions from his smartphone or our computer.  
And even while doing online shopping, I have my window shopping ritual, too. Checking all those websites, clicking links from emails, fetching online coupons and more. 
There are times when I don't really have time to go and mostly stuck at the office, so I use my break to again sneak a peek to those webs :). Naughty me...

Sekarang siapa coba yang tidak pernah belanja online? Rasanya kebanyak dari kita malah sudah ketagihan ya, termasuk saya :). Taburan diskon khusus online, koleksi yang super duper lengkap dan menggiurkan, plus bonus rewards atau gratis ongkir suka membaut saya dan suami gelap mata hihihi..Berawal dari window shopping, berakhir dengan online rampaging :). Habis salah sendiri ngintip-ngintip tempat belanja, begitu kata suami. Kalau alasan klasik saya, kan mumpung diskon besaaar jadi sekalian nyetok. Dan kemudian pusing sendiri dengan tagihan kartu kredit karena nyetoknya berlangsung sepanjang tahun...

But  speaking about online shopping, don't miss the chance to check Zalora :). Its holiday season guide is alluring,  you'll definitely find something for everyone. And pssst...the sale button is always ON here:). No wonder my husband and I have prepared our lists these days. Sort of a list of gifts for ourselves, haha..

So, what do you think about window shopping?  Do you do it as well? 
Or you try to avoid it?
Have you make the most of this holiday season?

Wanna find out what I have successfully shopped so far?
Hmmmm... Kasih tau ngg yaaa :)
