So I was on a shopping ban during March so I didn't allow myself to shop for personal things. But surprisingly I was also very blessed that month. I got lucky because even though I was having a shopping ban but I was showered with gifts and freebies, so I received a couple of new things without having to spend any money :) #Alhamdulillah
Then in April I relieved myself from the shopping ban and I allowed myself to buy only a few things. Nothing much because I'm still in saving money mode. So here are some new freebies that I received lately (aside from the products given to me by my sponsors) :
Elizabeth Helen Lipstick in #15
My mother in law got back from her Umroh to Saudi Arabia, and she got me this beautiful pouch and Elizabeth Helen lipstick in the shade of natural sheer pink. I like the formula of the lipstick because I believe it contains olive oil so when I'm wearing it my lips feel moist all day.
(Lipstick when worn):
These two items below are gifts that I received generously :
Navy Blouse from local bazaar
The large pashmina says "made in India", and I love it because of the vibrant colors.
The blouse is from a bazaar at the mall where they sell local brand items. I really love how this blouse falls nicely loose on my body. These days I'm currently into loose-fitting clothes because I find it more comfortable for my current body shape.
Brown Cherry Scarf
My mom gave me this cute scarf the other day.
I like the cherry pattern and I wore it the next day straight away ;)
NYX Glam Shadow in "Player"
L'Occitane Verbena Cooling Hand Cream Gel
My brother's girlfriend gave me these goodies. I always love the verbena scent from L'Occitane, so naturally I fell in love with this hand cream right away. It smells so fresh!
The NYX eyeshadow has a very gorgeous shade.
"Player" is a metallic silvery grey which would look awesome on night time makeup look.
Alila Living Refreshing Face Mist
My brother gave me this face mist because obviously he wouldn't use it, LOL. I haven't had a face mist since a long time ago so I was happy to have a face mist again now ;)
This face & body spritzer is a blend of aloe vera juice, honey, grape, and starfruit extracts, as well as lavender, ylang ylang, and lemongrass plant actives.
I only did a small haul because (as I told you) I'm kinda still in saving-money mode.
Sparkling Bracelet Set
I got this sparkling beauties from an Indian jewelry store at De Moda. I always love coming into an Indian jewelry/accessories store because it's always full of vibrant colors and amazing sparkles from all the beads and embellishments. Nothing beats the sparkling and vibrant tones of Indian jewels.
1. Cotton On Maxi Dress
2. H&M Sheer Blouse
As I told you above, my current style involve loose fitting outfit, so I'm drawn into loose-cut blouses such as this H&M printed blouse. I also wore a lot of maxi skirts and maxi dresses lately because they're not constricting and I can move freely in them. So I needed a new maxi dress such as this stripe one from Cotton On. I always like the comfortable fabric of Cotton On clothing, and this cotton dress feels really good to wear. I can imagine wearing it with a cropped light-washed denim jacket. But unfortunately I don't have a denim jacket, so maybe another future shopping trip is needed? (;p)
