[Shopping Diary] : Recent Hauls & Freebies10:02:00 PM
It's Friday night again and right now I'm waiting for my most recent purchase to arrive (*wink*). Recently I just acquired a new-to-me Coach scarf which I can't wait to receive! (I think it would arrive today or tomorrow the latest). Anyway, speaking of recent purchase, here is what I acquired (and fortunately received as gifts) lately ...
Just before Ied day we received a suprise from the Nivea head office! My husband's office is located in the same building as Nivea head office, and just before Ied day they are surprisingly giving away Nivea product hampers to the neighboring office including hubby's office. So how lucky we are to receive these freebies from Nivea. So thank you so much Nivea Indonesia!
I received these Japanese Beauty Face Masks including Melano Science samples from a good friend of mine who went to Japan just recently. Aside from these goodies I also received some cool MTex washi tapes (!) which I'm about to post on my other blog Tigerlily's Book A.S.A.P :)
From that same friend I also got this Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner - which is the only liquid eyeliner that I would recommend to everyone else, (lol). Before she departs for Japan she asked me about what products that she should buy from Japan (or products that relatively cheaper in Japan). I advised to get Dolly Wink liquid liner because that is my sole HG when it comes to eyeliner and I encourage her to try it. She took my advice and bought a couple of them (and fell in love!), and she also let me buy one from her too - with cheaper price, of course :)
Then a while back we visited the Pandora Box garage sale which is one of the most popular garage sale held at Kemang area. This annual yearly garage sale is popular for their designer brand items so if you're in search for preloved designer brands you would want to check out this garage sale next year (^o^). Anyway, from this garage sale I got one of the item that has been on my wish list forever which is the Guerlain Meteorites! It's preloved but it's still almost 3/4 full and the packaging still looks good too. The price was unbelievably cheap. I got it for IDR 100,000 only :)
From the same garage sale I also got this Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in shade Ole Flamingo! Lately I try to buy a new lippie every other month because lipstick is one of my favorite makeup to play with (^o^). Anyway, this one is new/sealed product and not a preloved item, but I got this for IDR 180,000 only! -> a little bit cheaper than retail price :)
Then, as you might already read in my previous post, I did a little shopping haul at Sociolla.com. As I told you above, I strive to try out a new lipstick every other month, so last month I purchased another lippie! I originally only bought the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in shade Ibiza which is a soft nude shade that looks neutral and yet gorgeous on the lips. But surprisingly Sociolla also thrown in a surprise bonus which is a travel size Cottage Invigorating Shower Gel in Ocean Blossom. I love Cottage shower gels so I'm really happy with the bonus gift!
I got no freebie in the fashion department this time except for the gorgeous charm bracelet from Soufeel Jewelry that I received as sponsored product. So everything listed down below are all purchased items.
Starting with this Silver Jewelry from Matahari department store. We were buying some stuffs for my brother's wedding at Matahari dept store and they were having promotion (which I think is still going on today), and they handed several shopping vouchers for our purchase. The only condition is we have to spend the voucher on that very same day. So after receiving the discount voucher I went to their jewelry department and found these pretty silver double ring, and a pair of zirconia earrings. So I spent the voucher for these two items and I only have to pay IDR 80,000 for these two :)
I always wanted to try a long jumpsuit but always afraid that it won't suit my petite figure. Then one day I spot a cute floral one at an outlet store and decided to try it on just for good measure. Well apparently all my perceptions are wrong! Long jumpsuits are not for tall ladies only, apparently petites can wear them too :) So I bought this cute little jumpsuit and at home I just realized that this is actually from the kids section, the brand is Emerson Junior. So here's my advise for petites : try the ones from the kids department, it might fit our body and short legs better :) Here I'm wearing Emerson Junior jumpsuit in size 10, and I also tried a size 12 which also looks okay on my petite frame.
Next are my phone case purchases. I recently upgraded my phone so automatically I needed some new cases to protect my phone (because I'm clumsy like that and I always drop my phone no matter what). So after figuring out which ones to get I finally decided to get this polkadot one from Kate Spade. It is the one with the smaller dots because I don't like the one with the bigger dots. It's a soft case with thick and strong rubber material - which I think would act as a great bumper for my phone.
A week later I also got two other cases from Michael Kors because they were on big discount. The MK ones are hard case and it's thinner than the Kate Spade one. I figured I needed both the sturdy one as well as the sleek ones, so I can wear the Kate Spade case for outdoor activities and the Michael Kors case for casual and/or fancier events (;p)
Note: After buying many cheap phone cases from ebay and the likes, I decided to just splurge on designer ones because from my experience the cheap ones were fragile and easily damaged or broken, especially for someone like me who always dropped or bumped the phone accidentally. So I thought instead of keep buying cheap plastic cases every few months (because it always got broken or dirty or damaged easily), I might as well look for the ones that are made of stronger material (which usually comes with a higher price tag). So that's how I decided to invest on these designer cases. Not because I'm a snob, but more because of a "necessity" to protect my phone - considering how clumsy I am with my phone.
So yeah, that's it for my recent hauls and freebies. You can also click HERE if you want to see my previous shopping diary post - only for those who loves reading these kind of posts :)
So what did you received or buy recently?
