February's Beauty & Fashion Haulin'

So it's quite late, but here's my February haul post! Mostly cheap 'n cheerful online buys (my very favourite kind!). To start off with, since Autumn is on the way, I bought some printed tattoo tights off eBay. The seller is bestworld2009, for anyone interested. 

I've been pretty intrigued by the tattoo tights trend, and when I saw these patterns I couldn't resist - especially the Alice in Wonderland pair, since I've a love for anything Alice related! 

From the same seller, I also purchased two sets of some really pretty, wispy false lashes (I have a lot already I know, but how could I resist?!), and the most darling looking, leopard print bow belt - leopard print and bows, a must-buy combination, yes?    

The obligatory Korean brand goodies ^_^

Etude House gradient nails set in Princess Marry - I am so in love with this set - perfect for bling bling nails! And a Tony Moly Cat compact powder - an irrational, impulse buy since I actually do not like to use powders. I was won over by the need to have a cat shaped compact, simple as that.

More impulse buys from eBay! I was bored so I decided to log onto eBay, and before long I had come across the cutest rabbit plush pencil case. I bought it immediately, thinking to give it to my sister before she went back to school, since she adores rabbits. 

And then a few minutes later I came across this panda pencil case, and then I didn't have a choice but to buy it too, since my sister is just as obsessed with pandas (see the panda backpack I purchased for her in January).

eBay is so bad for boredom...

Okay, I know this looks bad, but I can totally justify this MUA haul. Back in late January they had this *massive* 50% off sale, plus free shipping promotion, so I ended up getting all this make-up for only AUD$26!

You've already seen my review on the Hot Lips lip balm (which I am still loving by the way), and I want to say I will be reviewing a lot of the things shown here soon, but truthfully I am sooo behind my reviews, because I just keep getting distracted by new goodies *bad me*

Feel free to give me a little nudge if there's something you're desperate to see a review on - I'll do my best to get to that first!

Another impulse buy, but hey it was $5 for a set of 7 polishes, so that ain't too bad! This is the Model's Prefer Party in Pink gift set, originally $15, I think. Truthfully I only got it because I could envision having the prettiest nails by pairing the 3rd last polish with the silver polish on the end. I wore these two polishes in my Etude Cherry Tint review~

Now onto the clothing hauls! Luckily for my wallet, I only liked two things last month~

This pleated maxi-dress has got to be my favourite February purchase! I have been eyeing this on and off since December, and I'm so happy I was able to pick it up on sale. It was part of Target's Tokyo Doll range - super feminine, but with a bit of edge. It's a total dream to wear, though I've only just tried it on, and am actually yet to wear it out anywhere. 

Finally, this dress from Ally immediately caught my eye with it's lady-like shape, pretty colour, and interesting floral overlay <3 

And now I have another minty toned piece to add to my growing collection! It's probably my fave colour at the moment.

That concludes last month's shopping~! 

What did you buy throughout February? And anyone else spend just a little too much time on ebay, like me? :p

  29. The two dresses are so lovely, they remind me a bit of what Lauren Conrad would go for :) Very feminine and delicate and dressy! I always seem to miss when MUA have those sales ... would've loved to have grabbed one of their eyeshadow palettes.

  30. Thank you ^^
    Now if only I had somewhere special to wear these dresses!
    The sale was pretty huge, but a lot of people missed out since the site couldn't handle the traffic - I was really lucky to be able to make the order >_<
