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
When a beauty blogger repurchases a beauty product, it’s guaranteed to be winning products! And that’s why I bought the following again :
- Invisible Zinc ESP Moisturiser ($34.95) – I wear sunscreen all year round and this chemical sunscreen is one of my HG skincare savers!
- FACE OF AUSTRALIA Gentle Make-Up Remover ($7.95) – With my lash extensions, I’ve been going through my Bioderma Crealine H2O like no tomorrow so I had to get a cheap yet effective alternative. (P.S. Have you entered my Bioderma Giveaway yet?)
- FACE OF AUSTRALIA High Definition Liquid Eyeliner ($11.95) – Everybody raves about Asian liquid pen eyeliners (K-Palette, Kiss Me, Dolly Wink) but I can’t use them because their tips are too fine. This FOA one is perfect for me.
- Colgate Total Dental Floss ($4) – My new favourite saying to my patients is “Only floss the teeth you want to keep!” I don’t know how many times I need to say this but floss, floss, floss!!! (Go on, watch the flossing video I filmed.)
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
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.
