A Beauty-Full Haul!




I'll preface this by saying I don't go into the city much. So when I take the hour long bus ride into town (on a school day, no less!), I make the most of it. This includes writing a huge list of everything I want to buy, where to get it and even the order in which to shop! Yes, I maximize my shopping time by prioritizing and putting everything in the most efficient order, so I'm not doubling back. I only had two hours to get all this plus buy my husband a Valentine's Day gift, as I was meeting him for lunch, then needed to be on the return bus so I could pick up my son from school. I'm happy with everything I got, although I would have liked to get a new perfume in the Priceline 'up to 60% off fragrances' sale, but I didn't like anything I sniffed!




I'd been wanting to try something from Natura Siberica ever since reading about the brand on beauty blogs and I'm fresh out of body scrub, so the Natura Siberica Oblepikha And Honey Body Scrub was a no-brainer. Look at that pretty packaging! I've had a sniff and it smells amazing, too! Plus I wanted a new mascara, and Maybelline Masterliner is my everyday eyeliner, so I was pretty thrilled to find this Maybelline Colossal Go Extreme Leather Black Mascara with bonus Masterliner Cream Pencil pack! This little haul was from Chemist Warehouse.




I had two Priceline Sister Club discount vouchers to use (yay!) so bought a pack of Schwarzkopf Blonde Ultime in Xtra Light Cool Blonde (marked down to $8.00) and Schwarzkopf Nordic Blonde Toner. I still hadn't reached my voucher value so added a couple of lippies, Essence lipstick in 01 Coral Calling and Savvy by DB lipstick in Guava. With my two vouchers, everything came to $4.70 YES!




I visited The Body Shop with the purpose of smelling their Italian Summer Fig scent (quite nice!) and getting a Born Lippy in Strawberry. I used to wear this every day at school when I was a teenager. Major nostalgia hit! I still love it. I looked in their sale section (of course) and found the strange but alluring Colour Crush Lipstick in 301 Drive Me Nuts. It's a brown shimmer and will be hit or miss (can't wait to try it) but at only $4.95, down from $21.95, I had to take the chance! ~ Edit~ it looks great blotted down on the lips and I even like it blended on the outer edges of my lids as an eyeshadow!




I was so excited to finally check out Oh Deer Sugar in Regent Arcade! It's very similar to Lush, but all the products are vegan and handmade in my hometown, little ol' Adelaide. After sniffing nearly everything I couldn't pass up the Fruit Tingle Body Scrub. I got a little piece of gingerbread bubble bar as a free sample, too!




Being the stationery addict I am, I had to get another three Typo A5 Spinout Notebooks. I write pages of notes, lists, ideas, recipes, blog ideas etc every day and go through these notebooks so quickly. I love their three for $10 deal.

I'm joining in with the Fabulous And Fun Life Monday Makeup Madness Linky Party!

  2. What a pity you couldn't find a fragrance you loved in the Priceline sale. I love buying fragrances, and stationary is another weakness of mine. I have so much washi tape and notebooks! I now try to avoid Typo so as not to buy any more notebooks - lol!

    1. I have SO many notebooks, but I do use them so I figure it's OK. I have 2 rolls of washi tape but no idea what to do with it! What do you use yours for?

    2. I decorate my blogging planner and diary with it. It helps motivate me and use my planner on a daily basis.

  3. Ooh that Fruit Tingle scrub looks nice! I went through a strawberry Body Shop lip balm phase too - must be a teenage girl thing. I can still recall the scent. My favourite things to buy? Hmmmm...nail polish is a no brainer (bought 2 last week...oops...), but I'm a sucker for a nice smelling candle as well. I'd say those 2 + costume jewellery from places like Lovisa are all the things I like to buy. If I had to choose...it'd be a tough battle between candles & polish and I'm not going to make that decision!

    1. I had to stop myself from entering Lovisa. I love sparkly things, and know I would have been in there forever lol.

  4. Excellent haulage! I work in the city which is convenient but can also be dangerous. I haven't been into Oh Deer Sugar yet though!

    1. Going to the city is a treat for me, so I go a little cray-cray when I do visit. You should check out Oh Deer Sugar if you love cute body products (or are a Lush fan). Everything looks like food!
