Weekend Mini Haul (Oh No, I Can't Stay Away from the Shops)
I went for a haircut today (or rather a trim, because the last hairdresser did a really awful job with my short bob). The hairdresser recommended these for scalp care. I had to try them. The things I do to "keep it all together" eh? *big sigh* Then I walked over to Isetan to exchange the too-dark P&J Creamy Compact Foundation Refill I got last time in March. I was pleased that the SA let me change it, even though I had forgotten about it and waited more than 2 weeks. I got the 01 and she told me in future, I should get the 10 for the new formula. While there, I had to check if they had any pressed powder, because I have been using foundation powder for touch-ups and I don't think that's very good at all. Eventually, using my vouchers, I bought the pressed powder in 05. The SA said it's abit more natural and shimmery/glowy than 02. It's really light and nice, I like it. Since I had a voucher, it's ok to get it here I think, rather than wait to get it in Japan. And I've been wanting a P&J powder for a some time. I also got these issues of Japanese mags which have really cute bag packed together as gifts. I have to confess I bought the mags for the bags, because actually, Sweet is a little too young for me. Still, I like looking at the pretty things in the mag. *one more big sigh* But Miss on the other hand, turned out to be a good buy. I find I really like Miss alot. It's not too young but not too old. I think it's targetted at people in my age group! Lots of OL type of clothes and bags and makeup. There are alot of accessories in the magazine that I like, I need to figure out where they are from (darn, I wish I could read Japanese!). And a spread on Coach's Bonnie handbags caught my eye. It looks very "spring" and fun. And even some information on food and restaurants! I could use those, if I could figure out the addresses. *another big sigh* (I'm in a bit of a moody state today, after spending the whole day out. I tire so easily, especially if it involves battling crowds and noise. Plus I'm so unfit!) Here are the cute gifts. First, the Jill Stuart patent handbag. And then a L'occitane bag. The mag gave some ideas on how to use the L'occitane bag. Do you have any others? I don't think I could use them as regular bags. They're really cute but small. And I don't just want to use them as makeup pouches. I have in mind a tonne of things I want to get in Japan, despite the high yen. All those stuff I can't find back here in Singapore. By the way, do you know of any handbag designs that are Japan exclusives? © Copyright. All rights reserved.
