Having had a job for a quite a few weeks now and seeing my bank balance looking quite healthy, I may have taken it as a sign to splurge just a tiny bit...ish. I thought I'd share what I've purchased, as I don't think I'll be doing one of these massive hauls for a very long time, as I'll be saying hello to adulthood and a lifetime of debt (a.k.a mortgage) shortly (it secretly makes me want to cry... I don't want to grow up :( ) Anyway... this is what I bought.
1. MAC cosmetics
I purchased Soap & Glory Body Scrub because I've been wanting to try tanning products, and I don't have a body scrub. I've given this a go last night, and it's so delightfully grainy! I love it! I also purchased the LORAC PRO to go eye/cheek palette, Lea Journo Revive French Plum oil, Hourglass veil mineral primer, Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in Exposed (for my sister's birthday), Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder, YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in 15 Corail Intuitive, MUFE Full Cover Concealer in 7 (this concealer is amazeballs), Anastasia brow wiz in Brunette (I think I'm set for brow pencils for the rest of my life), and UD eye pencil in Gunmetal.
So I really wanted to make an order from Victoria's Secret, but could not justify it, as there was no good coupons (I'm a tight arse...). Thankfully, Gap had a good deal on and relieved me of the urge to go clothing shopping. From memory, they had a 50% sale, so I picked up a jumper and a top for Mike, a white shrunken boyfriend shirt for myself (for work ;))....
a black skirt, black work pants (both also for work :P) and a 3/4 yoga-style pants from Old Navy (part of the GAP group).
4. Forever 21
I also decided to make a forever 21 order, after seeing the sequin love-heart jumper. I nearly talked myself out of it until I saw the other love-heart jumper. I could not resist! I love love-heart jumpers! I also picked up a houndstooth dress, which is perfect for work.
So that's it for my pretty massive US haul. I used HopShopGo as my parcel forwarder. They sent my parcels via express on Friday, and I received most of them (7 out of 9 parcels) on Monday! The other two parcels were actually Mike's, and one of them came today. Hopefully we'll get the other by Friday or I won't be too impressed.
Disclaimer: Please remember that I did not create this post to brag about what I bought, I just thought some people might be interested in what I have purchased, as I do love reading/looking at other people's hauls and feeling insanely jealous.
