A small shopping update~

Hey, how's everybody doing? 
I went to Garden City with my Mum yesterday, since I needed to sort out some paperwork at Medibank (private health insurer). Luckily there was hardly anyone queueing up so it was all sorted very quickly! 

I also took the opportunity to return a scrub that I had bought at Lush. Despite rave reviews, the scrub actually freaked my skin out, giving me small bumps around my mouth and chin, and on my cheekbone after about 2 weeks of using it. Not sure the salesgirl believed me, but she was friendly enough and helpful with the refund process, and conceded that some people could get reactions from the essential oils (e.g. lavender oil) used in the product. I'm happy that Lush has such a good returns policy otherwise I would be too timid to return a product I had already opened and partially used. 

After that Mum and I didn't go to many other shops, mostly because I wasn't in the mood to look at clothes, and also because I need to save my cash to buy some storage drawers for my wardrobe. The drawers I found were a bit small, so I still need to check out a few other places first. 

I did buy some clear top coat nail varnish for $3 at the Reject Store which I'm going to need when my eBay nail art supplies get here in the next few weeks~ I'm pretty excited, I love looking at nail art, but never really bothered with my nails since it'll interfere with my part time job. However when I was browsing online, I saw that false nails can be applied with nail tape instead of glue, which means I can wear pretty nails and easily take them off when I need to. I've already ordered false nail tips, sticker decals and various deco pieces, and I've been browsing nail art tutorials so I'm really looking forward to giving kawaii nail art a go.

My other two purchases of the day are from Kmart. I'm being totally stingy on clothes and such lately because I want to save all that lovely money for my online beauty buys *0*

Anyway I saw these smexy black wedges for sale at $10, and I wasn't going to get them because my shoe collection is kinda scary big, but Mum said if I liked them I should just get them so I did. When I have time I'll show you my shoe collection, and you'll see that Mum should not have encouraged me XD

I like these because while most of my shoes are black, most of them look too heavy for summer wear. By heavy I mean with closed in toes, which don't look good with light, summer clothing, and which are too hot for sweltering heat. These have a more summery look to them.

And my final purchases were two pairs of grey-wash jeggings, on clearance for $5. 

Some snacks I got at the Asian supermarket <3 Not all for me though, I'm sharing them with my lil bro and sis~

Happy weekend everyone!
