What the postman brought me this week

1. Lush - $48.50, including shipping
I'm such a sucker for freebies. I only really made this order because Lush had a promotion on - get a free sample bag with any order online. I purchased No Drought Dry Shampoo, Rehab shampoo, and Strawberry Feels Forever Massage Bar. I have used all three since I received this order.

The No Drought Dry Shampoo was really efficient in keeping my oily roots at bay in between washes. However I wasn't a fan of the whole application process, as I had to pour the powder out and somehow attempt to massage it into my hair without getting it all over the place.

I'm not entirely sure about the Rehab shampoo. It says to use it with the Retread Conditioner, which I already have and after using both, my ends were so so so dry, it felt like hay. My ends haven't felt so dry since I bleached the crap out of them (they were chopped off when I went to Singapore in October last year). I will use it again in about a week or so, and see if it happens again.

Strawberry Feels Forever kind of sits on top on my skin for a long time before it gets absorbed (if it even does... I don't know, I went to bed about 30 minutes later, so my sheets might have absorbed it). Does anyone know how to store this? I currently have it wrapped up in the lush wrapping paper.

The samples I received were Herbalism Cleanser, Dream Cream Body Lotion, Ocean Salt Cleanser, and 9 to 5 Cleanser. Have yet to use any.

2. eBay
 If you've been following me on instagram, you'd know that I've recently purchased an iPad mini. I refused to buy any accessories from a retail store, as they're ALWAYS a rip off, so I went on eBay to get some protective gear to help preserve my iPad from my rough handling.

Since Apple decided to change the plug thingy, I purchased a lightning converter plug for $3.20, as I've got so many of the old plug connector things. I also purchased a black case, which came with a screen protector and a stylus pen for $8.65.

3. Ozsale - Roxy - $45
I have more bikinis than I know what to do with! At least I'll be more than well prepared for my trip to Maldives in May :)

I also picked up two pairs of shorts during the Ozsale Roxy sale event. I find Roxy sizes really weird. Size 6 (ladies) is a tat too tight, size 8 is perfect. BUT size 12 girls shorts fit me as well as size 8 Ladies. :-s

4. eBay
Purchased a Victoria's Secret push up bra from eBay because I absolutely LOVE VS! VS is one of my favourite lingerie brands! I purchased this for $26.60 including postage, which I thought was a bargain since it's brand new with tags and it retails for about USD$50! Although it may seem a bit tacky, but I also love the cheetah print straps. I don't normally go for these prints on apparels, but for some strange reason I like it on this bra!

5. LookFantastic
My valentine's day presents came in the mail today from the BF. He has gotten me everything that I wanted I may have picked it all out and used his credit card to pay for them (with his permission, of course!) He is such a genius when it comes to picking up presents for me :P ;)

He got me a Naked UD Flushed palette, UD 24/7 Waterproof Eyeliner in black, and a UD lash primer potion.

I've been slowing down in my spending, especially after that hefty iPad mini purchase. I am kind of jobless, so I don't have any disposable income to spend. :( Worst nightmare has come true!


  1. Ahhh I wish my bf bought me make-up for vday! I would love to know your thoughts on UD's flushed palette :) x

  2. I am a huge fan of Lush No drought, I did a post on it :o) Found your blog via Louise xx


  3. oooh the Flushed Palette! Can't wait to see a review :)

  4. I want an iPad so badly but I don't think I can justify the purchase! I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on the flushed palette :)

  5. great purchases! looking forward to your review on naked flushed - particulary the bronzer which ive heard is good :)
