My First Nature Republic Purchases + I Lost My Receipt Today and Beware of Thieves even If You're Inside the Mall

I am a bit pissed of right now.

I bought many stuffs from Nature Republic today because I can't wait for the weekend to visit.

All was ok until My. Panda and I were having our snacks.

I saw the receipt that was stapled to the paperbag of my purchases GONE.

Then I remembered when I was in the crowded entrance of the mall for bag checkup, the lady behind me was very close to me. I don't know if she's pushing me around since I'm taller than her.

but the fact is, I don't like strangers being physically close to me because I'm already traumatized by what happened to me last 2 weeks ago.

Anyway, I was irritated and puzzled at why she grazed her hand twice at my back so I arrange all my things in front of me just to be sure and gave her THE EVIL LOOK.

After that I saw my paperbag open. Luckily, not one of my purchases got stolen.

Unfortunately, the receipt that was stapled to the paperbag was gone. I couldn't find it anymore.

I wouldn't really mind if the receipt got lost, but I need it for review purposes.

How am I suppose to inform my readers about the price of the product I'm reviewing if it's already lost?

So if ever I'll be reviewing Nature Republic products next time, I won't be able to tell you the exact price of each product. Just the approximate.

and a piece of advice:


Anyway, here is my haul. I can't state the exact price of these anymore since I already lost the receipt just a few mins. after I purchased these. (I won't be going back to the store anytime soon to check on the prices)

my purchases are on the right side of my box cartoon character and the freebies that were given to me is on his left side.

The saleslady also gave me their 10% discount card. (I forgot to take a picture of it) It also serves as sort of my membership card because I've accumulated P1000 worth of products in a single transaction. So everytime I but something from Nature Republic, I already have 10% discount out of my orders. Nice idea to boost sales...hihihihihi!

Good thing I never got the mini standee of their male model who represent this brand. I would only use that for target shooting...I mean, why would I want a cardboard action figure? Funny thing was, I heard the Chinese customers behind me at the counter debating and maybe mocking a bit (in chinese)...they wondered if the model was a girl/gay because he looks like a girl...unfortunately, I understood their language...poor guy, tsk tsk tsk. 

Feminine looking guys are a "norm" in some Asian countries nowadays since the "anorexic look" became popular, if they haven't noticed that by now. Honestly, those guys are not my cup of tea, but as they say, "different strokes for different folks."


  1. Hi Sarah! You just don't know how much your comment meant to me... im deeply moved. thank you!

    I'm in a bad state since that fateful Sunday and you girls have made feel better with your warm wishes.

    [Im sorry to spam this post with this irrelevant comment... para on-topic: yep, i make it a point to keep my bag right where i can see it or guard it. suki ako dati ng mga manggagancho so ive learned the hard way kaya im gonna give em a hard time this time. lulz!

    i suggest you call up the branch and ask them for your purchases' respective prices (i have their numbers over my Nature Republic Opening post, scroll towards the end nalang). matrabaho, but, it'll be for the blog naman :)]

  2. thank you for commenting! I hope you'll feel a lot better soon! (^_^)

    I'll try to call NR for the prices of my purchases. thank you! (^_^)v
