Crazy Stocking Up Habits
I'm hopeless! Today I went to a doctor's appointment and am now on some medication for some time hopefully I'll get better. So, I ended slightly early and I stopped over at Takashimaya on the way home. In the end, I resisted Hello Kitty powder, but bought something else instead. Bittenbefore reminded me of it ... I'll show you another day when I feel less guilty... ;p Ugh. I need to stop "stopping over" at shopping centres! Today's focus is on Crazy Stocking Up Habits. It's this "good buy" and "good deal" thing that gets me a little crazy. I don't "collect" makeup or skincare but when something good works for me and is cheap, I do tend to want to stock up to take advantage of a good deal. When Lavera was available at $7SG per item, I bought these toners to "stock up". I paid $35SG for 5 toners. The original price of each toner was somewhere between $33-35SG, I can't recall. Good huh? 5 for the price of one? I certainly hauled too much, but I'm glad I did. So worth it! These are great toners, but now that I'm using Blanchir, I wanted to keep the daily routine "pure" so that I can see better effects of Blanchir's brightening/whitening. So what am I going to do with so much haul? I should give up my crazy stocking up habits? Regrets? No! Haha.No way! I formulated a plan. I bought these compressed facemask sheets from Daiso and I'm going to soak these toners in the masksheets for face mask. Daiso sells so many varieties, I haven't tried all yet but this one is cheap in the sense that there are more pallets per pack. So my toners will not be wasted! Woot! Clever huh? Haha. Take pride in what I can. :p There are other things I got from Lavera too, sunscreen, body oils, moisturisers etc. This bag isn't the only one that went home with me filled with Lavera products. :p I went back several times to the shop over the week, because each time, I got a bottle of something to try and felt it was so good, I had to get more while the prices were good. But I'm too scared to show you everything. In case my friends in real life see them and come along to "scold" me for spending so much. Also, I feel guilty, especially knowing there is a friend who loves food but is starving herself of meals so that she can save money! (She says she's not starving, but she loves food so I feel kinda bad for her ... even though she says I shouldn't!) You just have to guess what I bought in total from Lavera. A story: On the last day of the sale, I was there picking up my toners and there were 2 women who were hauling so much that they paid a total of $600+SG and had many shopping bags lined up in the store! See, I'm not that bad! *snigger* By the way, I have been carrying this bag I bought recently from Charles and Keith. Very cheap, very roomy and matches alot of my clothes. It even has a zip, which is very important to me. Only thing I hate is the fake leather smell. :p Any tips for removing the smell? Otherwise, I hope it goes away after a few weeks' of use. © Copyright. All rights reserved.
