The title says it all!  There are only two things that I love to do in Hong Kong and that is eat & shop followed by shop & eat!  Hehe!!!  Admittedly, I didn’t do my usual Hong Kong splenderiffic spending spree due to lack of funding (dammit for being unemployed except for one day of the week!) but I still tried my best.  I was in Hong Kong for 11 days so I have split the haulage up into a few parts.  And I did buy other stuff for family and friends but I will only feature the relevant stuff I bought for little old me and my Justification For Purchase (JFP).  All prices are in HKD.  So are we ready?  Let’s go…

Day 1 – Shopping in Mong Kok Street Markets

Hello Kitty glasses ($40) – JFP : I heart Hello Kitty forever!
Pink A5 envelope clutch ($35) – JFP : It’s pink and envelope clutches are so trendy at the moment.  It also comes with a detachable wrist strap and a long strap.  Saw the same bag for sale in malls for more than double the price and I was chuffed because I had definitely scored a bargain!  I went back to the same stall later to get another clutch which you will see in a later post.
3 x towels of Hello Kitty, Angry Birds and Doraemon ($100) – JFP : I only use towels with cartoon characters because I come from a family of 9 and we had to distinguish which towel belonged to who…(I don’t wanna use the same towel as my teenage brother!!) – so it’s a lifelong habit now.

Day 2 – Shopping in Tsim Sha Tsui Streets

Fluffy bear scarf with hat and pockets ($60) – JFP : As it was Winter, HK nights got a bit chilly so I needed something to warm me up.  And it helps that this scarf is a cutie.
Black fluffy cat big bag ($80) – JFP : The cat’s big eyes looked at me and said, “Buy me now!” so I was only obeying orders!
Stitch iPhone cover ($60) – JFP : *squee*  The ears pop out when you press the top button.  So adorbs.  How could I resist?  All of my friends and colleagues who have seen this Stitch cover love it too!

Day 3 – Shopping in Tai Po & Sha Tin Malls

Inseta H2O Make-Up Removing Lotion ($98) – JFP : I wanted to see how it differs from the highly popular Bioderma Crealine H2O
Uniqlo Ultra Seamless Brief ($79) – JFP : I have VPL 365 days a year so I thought it was time to check out seamless undies!
Muji SPF 25 Cream Foundation ($80) – JFP : I was panicking because I hadn’t bought any make-up products and it was Day 3 already…so I bought a foundie from Muji which was getting discontinued.  WTF?  *shakes my head*  The worst JFP ever!!!
Muji Blusher & Eyeshadow Combo ($100) – JFP : Pretty in pink!  And then I saw the same product in Tine’s haul!  We have similar taste – yay!
Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar in 04 Cherry ($?? ) – JFP : I’m a Lip Stalker so if it’s pink and cute, I gotta have it!

What do you think of my haul so far?

I have come to the conclusion that I buy stuff that is cheap / pink / Hello Kitty / cute!

Stay tuned for Hong Kong Haul Part 2 tomorrow – same time, same place.

      @Celeste@becomingbeautiful, Yes, so similar…but I wonder who released their product first… Inseta was $10 cheaper than Bioderma…

      And yay! It’s an awesome cover!

I went on a mini shopping spree in here and bought an assortment of stuff. A couple of red dresses, jumpers, a cardi, a few short skirts and a pair of shorts. ($???) –  JFP : I need a new wardrobe! 3 x patterned tights (or stockings if you’re Aussie) ($120) – JFP : My bare legs are scary and will blind babies so I need something to cover them up when I wear short skirts. 3 x Hello Kitty PJs ($240) – JFP : Have I mentioned that I love Hello Kitty? Assortment of hair accessories – JFP : This year, I am going to fall in love with my hair. Dark blue A4 envelope clutch ($40) – JFP : It’s trendy and I wanted to buy a bigger version of the pink clutch from yesterday’s haul.Day 5 – Shopping in Causeway Bay2 x Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer ($104) – JFP : This is my favourite eye primer but it’s so hard to find a place which stocks it! I had to buy two! Peripera Kiss Tint 3 ($80) – JFP : I was determined to try a Peripera product ever since I lip stalked this Korean brand…but I was to cheapa$$ to buy a lippy so I got this instead because the SA said that you can apply it on your cheeks as well as your lips. Holika Holika Heart Ful Moisture Lipstick in Candy Red ($98) – JFP : It’s my first time seeing a heart-shaped bullet lippy so of course, being a Lip Stalker, I had to add it to my collection! 3 x Innisfree Face Sheet Masks ($30) – JFP : A girl can never have too many facial sheet masks!  Agree?Day 6 – Shopping in Sheung ShuiHitachi Hadacrie ($1880) – JFP : Apparently, it’s Japan’s No.1 beauty gadget so that was enough for me!  This baby does wonders for my skin and I cannot wait to show you my review!  It was also my most exxy purchase in my HK trip! Toy Story Alien Flask (free) – The Hitachi Hadacrie GWP = Gift With Purchase from Fortress. Shu Uemura Point Cealer ($210) – JFP : My Shu Uemura Mark Cealer is running out but it’s discontinued and Point Cealer is its successor. [P.S.  I also bought a Shu Uemura eyebrow pencil ($150)…but I looked at it and thought that I can't master pencilling in my brows and sent that off for my youngest sister as a birthday present…and it happens to be her birthday today!  Happy birthday bi-atch!  I am such a loving big sister, aren't I?  LOL]I hope you aren’t all bored with my haul posts because the third and final instalment will be tomorrow – same time, same place..nrelate .nr_sponsored{left:0px !important} /**/   If you enjoyed this article, please consider sharing it!
