SK-II Haul

This was the Gift with Purchase offer that was available at Myer when I went on my recent SK-II haul. The gift was too good to pass. With purchases over $250 you received a vanity case and 3 deluxe samples and if you spent over $500 you received an additional trolley bag (the four wheels type - pretty cool!).    

(excuse my messy dresing table and the luvo in the background)

(my favourite foundation on the far right - BOBBI BROWN Natural Finish Longlasting Foundation)

I haven't tried this product yet, since I still have some of my Laneige cleanser left. But thought I'd purchase it to take advantage of the offer. Will update my thoughts on it ..

A back-up purchase, since I am almost half way through my large bottle. This was the very first product I purchased from SK-II apart from the facial masks. The mask was what convinced me to invest into their skincare range since it is really expensive and I didn't want to spend so much on something that may not work. But a fter a few weeks of using this product, I have noticed my blemishes clearing up and an overall improvement in the clarity of my skin. I've been using it for almost two months now and within the first two weeks I received compliments on my skin improvements. So overall, thumbs up and I definitely think it was worth the price I paid. Highly recommended ! It's my number one skincare product. 
I bought this one about a month ago as a day moisturiser and use it after the Facial Treatment Essense. I love the gel formula as it quickly absorbs into my skin without being sticky or greasy at all. I have noticed that my skin is less oily throughout the day and my dry U-zone is also kept moisturised. It kind of smells like cucumber as well which is pleasant.

This is by far my favourite night cream. I received samples of it when I purchased the Facial Clear Solution and loved it. I use it after the Facial Treatment Essence before bed at night. It did everything it said it would. It has really helped with my large pores, especially in my nose and cheek area. My skin appears smoother and more brightened every morning when I wake up. Again its not oily or greasy, but incredibly moisturising. It doesn't come cheap for a 50g jar but because it's a night cream it should go a long way. Again, definitely worth the price. My skin has never felt so soft.

And this is exactly why I am always so BROKE ! My expensive love and need for luxury brand cosmetics.

Your Face !

I am at that point during exam preparation where I procrastinate and rather do things like painting my toe nails and blogging etc .. Its kind of bad since its the day before my exam and I really should be studying. I'll promise this will be a quick post and I'll get back to studying.

Dear boyfriend, because you made me show you my blog and complained that your face wasn't visible in the picture in the post below, I decided to dedicate this post to your face (your head to be exact). Hope this pleases you :) lol

Your back face ..

 Your driving face ..

Your smiling face ..
Your "I'm your sunshine" face

And some other face photos ..

Please don't kill me when you get back from the gym .. nobody reads my blogs anyways :)

Call me corny ...

Floriade 18 September 2010
It was my weekend off, my boyfriend wanted to surprise me and take me on a date to an unknown location. Thinking we were going to head off to somewhere in the 'city' the whole time, we ended up in Canberra. I was definitely surprised! 
We visited the Floriade flower show and Cockington Green Gardens. The sun was out and the weather was great. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I would've been happy just to spend the day with him doing nothing. I feel so fortunate, even though it hasn't been that long ... I miss him.

I wish that I could've seen this feature during the night .. the umbrellas light up for Nightfest at Floriade
I always wanted a doll house as a girl but my parents bought me a train set .. Were they confused?
On the inside ..

Introducing the boyfriend .. He found my twitter page but it'll be a while until he finds my blog (I hope!)

"It's so FLUFFFYYY !!"

Finally... I have survived through the long wait for the arrival of two items on my wishlist. It was a very long 2-4 weeks wait for both. Sitting by my phone, anticipating every call, just to get that call that tells me "... it has arrived". Okay, I may be exaggerating but it was a long wait...

House of Harlow 1960: Black Leather Sunburst Double Pendant Necklace - Thanks to my awesome bf =)

Longchamp: Planetes Tote in Black - Thanks to me haha

Crossed off! I can finally and officially cross them off my ever-growing wishlist... I am most definitely a happy girl !

Not related but still exciting news is that my company has today officially signed Lady Gaga for her debut fragrance ! It won't be out until at least a year from now, but can you imagine how out of this world it will be?! oh so GAGA!

I'm also really excited about the new Chloe fragrance "Love, Chloe"  launching next week. It's already out on counters in selected stores that carry the Chloe house fragrances, so come in and have a sniff .. It's a stunning high quality bottle. Made of the finest glass with latest technology for an almost invisible atomiser. Features a fine rose gold chain that connects the cap to the bottle and carries a sophisticated powdery floral scent ... I'm in LOVE !

Key notes:
Heliotrope, Iris Absolute and Rice Powder
Also, had a massive haul at the SK-II counter yesterday. Broke. I cannot wait until pay day on Wednesday ! I will post up my purchases soon.

So .. How are you liking my new camera? =)

Bags Bags Bags

Just placed an order in at the Longchamp store in QVB for the Planetes Tote in Black $199.00AUS for the large size with long handles. Can't wait until it comes in .. about 1-2 weeks !

I've always wanted a Le Pliage, but couldn't really decide what colour to get .. Purple, Navy, Black, Ivory ... so many colours ! Too many ! Been trying to decide for the past 6 months or more now but I have finally set my heart on black. Conventional and practical... But the Planetes is definitely a little less common since its a different material, slightly thicker and also features black leather handles and flap, rather than the typical tan/brown.

It's definitely a phonecall I don't want to miss !

Also, still waiting on the House of Harlow necklace.

The difficult life of a shopping obsessed addict .. always broke !

It's a new and expensive obsession .. BAGS !!!
