Whenever I say I am on a diet, I subconsciously sabotage my diet and binge like no tomorrow. There’s some reverse psychology going on there, methinks. I also realised that this applies to shopping bans too…
Yes, I went on a self-imposed shopping ban last week and then, somehow, ended up shopping on Saturday and Sunday. Oopsie! It wasn’t a huge shopping haul…but it was enough to do damage…(please bear in mind that my Husband is on a measly apprentice wage which does NOT even pay 4-figures per month and as for me, I have a one-day per week job and have temporary days when I work. Yes, I am still job-hunting, but usually I spend the time blogging…)
Anyway, onto my Weekend Haul :-
1. Rimmel London I Love Lasting Finish Nail Polish in Azure
I had blogged about my NOTD the other day. Beautiful blue! I mean, how could I resist??
Bought this in David Jones for $5.95 AUD.
2. Missha Leopard Nail Polish in Blue
This is similar to OPI Black Shatter except in dark navy blue. Will do a NOTD in the future. Missha is a Korean brand and I have used their BB Cream and face masks in the past. (One thing I like about Australia is that you can buy Asian brands, unlike UK…even though the prices are hiked up.)
Bought this in Missha store in Box Hill, Melbourne for $8.50 AUD.
3. Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Scent Spray
I know a lot of old ladies wear this. Okay, I am an old lady!!! But I just love everything with green tea in it. I drink it everyday – green tea itself, not the perfume!! This is the 4th bottle of this light and refreshing scent I have purchased! It should be my signature smell!
Bought this in mychemist for $13 AUD.
4. Sexy Blue Suede Shoes
Come to think of it, I bought a lot of blue items last weekend… Anyway, these shoes are sexy as! I originally saw the black version on Katie’s blog and I thought they looked amazing. And then when I came across them on Sunday, I knew I had to buy them! I uhm-ed and ahh-ed for a long time trying to decide whether I wanted the black pair with the gold lining or the blue pair with the silver lining. Hubby said black – but I chose blue in the end. I have NO idea when and where I will wear them but meanwhile, I can add them to my shoe collection! (My shoe collection moulded a few months ago!)
Bought in Target for $19.90 AUD.
5. Abercrombie & Fitch Grey Zip Fleece
It’s getting cold in Melbourne so this is ideal to keep me warm. I wanted a hoody but seeing as I am a cheapass, this was on sale and was half the price of hoodies.
Bought this in Frat House for $12 AUD.
6. Clear Beads with Black Ribbon & Owl Long Chain Necklace
I can’t resist sales items. These were only $5 AUD each and would look so good with any outfit.
Bought these in equip for $5 AUD each.
7. Black Cocktail Ring
I stepped into this accessories store called Lovisa in Chadstone and I wanted everything. The accessories are really pretty in here!! But of course, I zoomed into the sales section and chose this ring. I see so many girls wearing cool cocktail rings and I just wanted one. I have no idea when and where I will wear it but at least I have one! LOL
Bought this in Lovisa for $5 AUD.
I also bought other stuff which are not related to fashion nor beauty so I shall not mention them. Anyway, I am not going to buy anything for the rest of this month…okay, who am I kidding?!
