Just in case you didn’t know, I started my new job a couple of weeks ago and basically, I spent my first pay cheque before I even got paid!  Please don’t judge me…but I was born with the spend-a-lotta-money gene and if I go on a spending ban, I will spontaneously combust!!

Anyway, enough rambling and let’s check out what I spent my $ on.

The Beauty Shizz

shopping haul, best beauty blog, Melbourne beauty blog

When a beauty blogger repurchases a beauty product, it’s guaranteed to be winning products!  And that’s why I bought the following again :

Max Factor nail polishes, best beauty blog

I bought a couple of cute and dinky nail polishes from Max Factor.  These are Max Effect Mini Nail Polishes in Diva Violet and Red Carpet Glam.  They were less than a $1 each so I couldn’t resist.

4 x Models Prefer Lipstick & Nail Polish Organisers ($5 each) : These are a steal and will look pretty awesome once I fill them up with my lipsticks and nail polishes!  They were originally around $20 each but I saw them on sale in my local Priceline.  Bargain!  *pats myself on the back*

The Non-Beauty Shizz

antibiotics, chlorophyll drink, Melbourne beauty blog

The immune system of my mouldy bra is stronger than mine!!  I am feeling extremely poorly and my doctor prescribed me lots of pills (which cost me around $16) and I thought I’d try some health-boosting vitamins which came in the form of Swisse Chlorophyll Detox Health Drink.  I bought it because it was half-price at $11.  I haven’t actually drank any yet but I bet my gag reflex will have a party!!

I recently devoured The Hunger Games trilogy and it revived the bookworm in me.  I bought Fifty Shades Of Grey ($10) and I heard it’s an erotic read.  I haven’t read erotic books before so I am a little bit afraid.  What if it turns me into some sexy raging horny beast?  My husband can only hope!!  LOL!!  And of course, reading is no fun without a good cuppa tea and that’s why I bought this cutie chihuahua The Dog cup ($8).  It kinda reminds me of Legally Blonde…

The Non-Pictured Shizz

I couldn’t be bothered taking photos but I bought a 40″ Sanyo LCD TV for the boy’s 30th birthday.  It was $399 from Dick Smith.  That shop kinda creeps me out with all their “Dick” jokes!  Anyway, the TV is now in our bedroom and I can’t stop watching the damn thing while I munch salt and vinegar crisps in bed!

I also spent stupid money on new crockery and cutlery.  It’s for all the imaginary dinner parties that I host.  *cue awkward giggle*

Anyway, what have you recently splurged on?  Do you spend faster than you can earn?  What did you spend your first pay cheque on?  My first ever pay cheque as a dentist (around 8 years ago) was spent on La Mer products…and I didn’t even finish using the bottles of expensive goodness because I didn’t think they were all that!!  True story.

    Hmm, I can’t remember what I spent my first (full time) pay cheque on, probably bills or something non-exciting like that. The first exciting thing I got with my pay cheque was the ipad2!!

    LOL! That 50 Shades of Grey will make you squirm. I’ve heard that it’s super raunchy! Let me know once you’ve read that! And kudos to you for spending your first paycheck even before you’ve gotten it! 😀

      @Norlin, Even Noah has heard about the dodgy-ness of it on the radio LOL. And yes, I am rather good at spending money!

    Hahahaha @ turning you into a horny beast — I am not into erotica at all so I found the book a little excessive on the sex and just tooooo much information. I prefer a little mystery and romance, you know? However I still quite enjoyed the book… It won’t make the top of my lists or anything but it was a quick read and I plan on reading the others in the series eventually…. Let me know what you think.

    I really want to try the Invisible Zinc moisturizer but Im afraid it might be too heavy for my combination skin. I havent found a sunscreen that suits my skin yet, now I just use a UV powder. But I rather use an actual sunscreen

      @Helz Nguyen, Ah yes…it may be slightly too heavy for your combination skin. For my dry skin, it is perfect. And UV powder? Wow, cool! Never heard of that!!!

    Great going! And congrats on the new job btw! Let us know how you go with the book, I’ve been hearing lots about it lately.

    BTW, Chlorophyll turns everything green so be aware of that…I got a bit of a shock the first time I drank some and then stared in the mirror. 😛

    Great hauls Ling, I haven’t had any major hauls lately myself. Can’t even remember what I spent my first major pay cheque on although I did save up to go to America in my first year of being a flight attendant so all my shopping I did over there counts I guess!
