I went into the city yesterday to buy a new wallet and to look for the Essence Cherry Blossom Collection (check out the product photos here on Karina's blog). I did get my wallet, I did not find the Essence Collection, and I accidentally spent far more money than I should have.
I saw this Modalu Wallet at work and I instantly fell in love with it, but we sold the last one before I could pick it up. So I went into the city store and luckily they still had two left!
It was 50% off so it came to $49. The motif of the brand is seashells, I can't even. So pretty.
After debating on it for a while I finally picked up Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, and I also got the Nars Pro Primer. I went into Mecca Cosmetica to have a look at the colour range with the intention to order it online, but I ended up just saying oh well to the price and buying it in store. The girl serving me actually took the time to sit me down and match me to the shade Gobi, and she used the Pro Prime underneath. The combination looked so beautiful and felt so nice on my skin! Sheer glow was $68 and the Pro Prime was $52.
I actually bought this Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfecter from Wizard Warehouse Pharmacy yesterday for about $16. It is a rosy pink lip gloss that feels like a balm. Next at David Jones I picked up a Glasshouse Hand Cream in Bordeux. I have recently fallen in love with Glasshouse candles, and they have now released some bath and body products featuring their candle's scents. Bordeaux is a strong vanilla scent which I love, but my boyfriend says it smells like medicine haha. Dermologica were having 20% off everything so I was going to pick up a full size of their Daily Microfoliant, but sadly they were out of stock :(. So instead I got a bottle of their Ultracalming Cleanser, which was around $40. I also found theBalm's Balm Jovi Palette on sale for $35, but when I took it to the till it was actually down to $30, what a bargain!
How do people take photos of clothes for their blog? It is seriously the most difficult thing ever. Anyway I also picked up two new clothing items from Chicabooti. I got this white dress above,
The detailing on the dress, how cute are the little stars?
And this bright, coral/pink skirt. I love the cut of this skirt, it is super flattering on.
I also got this new diary from Typo. It was on sale for $4, I think the pattern on the front is so cute!
