Today's cheap thrill is another freebie that comes with a magazine! I first saw the magazine when I was browsing in Kinokuniya with Jacelyn.

When I first saw the freebie on the cover, I was intrigued! It looked pretty decent! Felt material and a good size unlike the Agnes B bag..

I deliberated over it and decided not to buy it that day. Went home, googled a bit and liked what I saw and I bought it the next day!

Here's the unboxing pics!

I absolutely adore the bag. Even more than the Agnes B bag! But then, this magazine was definitely more expensive than Steady's. The Fred Perry Autumn & Winter 2010 Collection Book retails at $28.70. Borrowed Jacelyn's Kinokuniya card and I got 10% off. Whee!

The Collection Book however isn't like the typical Japanese magazines with the nice tutorials etc. It showcases Fred Perry fashion (like duh! It's a collection book!)

So don't expect much from it.

Some pics..

Hello Amy Winehouse!

Wished that I have the legs (and the height) to carry this off.

Chio! Go get your Fred Perry bag now!

My first "Cheap thrills" piece!

I decided to start writing about my cheap thrills because friends were bemoaning about how expensive items are getting. While as much as I love having quality items, I'm more of a quantity person!

Which explains why I always spend very little for each item e.g. clothes, accessories etc. Only once in a blue moon, I would splurge on an item.

So whenever I find something which is cheap (to me), I'll share them!

My first item isn't a clothing item! Wahahahaha! It's a magazine!

If you've visited Kinokuniya, you would have seen thousands (ok, not thousands, i'm exaggerating!) of Japanese magazines with lovely freebies. They always come with some beautiful bag, umbrellas, pouches or makeup!

I first found out about Steady Magazine from Evonnz when she tweeted about it.

It comes with a lovely Agnes B bag and bag hook!

Needless to say, I trotted over to Kinokuniya and bought a copy of Steady Magazine, December Issue at $17.50.

Unboxing pictures.

The bag hook is so pretty!

I thought the bag would have been bigger but it's a cute size. Perhaps to dapao lunch to work? :p

I think for $17.50 for a nice bag, a bag hook and a magazine is quite worth it! Bag hooks are usually more than 10 bucks? If you don't like it, pack it up for a gift!

For those who were wondering, Steady Magazine has lots of pictures of clothings, makeup, etc

I spy sister brand Ettusais!

And here's my cheap thrill for the day! What's yours? If you have any, please share them with me!
