all hail Saturdays!!!!!!

Having a lazy Saturday today. Actually not really. I started the day doing house inspections near my good old uni because I need to move out soon (bro coming to town for uni so need bigger space). Then lunch at nearby mall.. had some good old takeaway Chinese that I used to eat a lot when I was at uni and living around the area. Brings back memories. Stopped by Lush, got free face massage and picked up couple of stuff:

Picture source: good old Google

I tried their blueberry (Catastrophe something) mask in store but end up buying the Cosmetic Warrior mask because it contains ingredients that I've used and proven to work on my skin (eggs, honey, tree tea oil). I also picked up the Rub Rub Rub scrub because it's blue and pretty (totally solid reason to purchase stuff..)
I quite like the Rub Rub Rub but I don't think it's much better than my current regular scrub from Sukin. The mask is quite good too, I notice that it reduces redness on my skin just after I use it. The one negative thing is that.. it smells FOUL. I read a couple of reviews online and people are complaining about the garlic smell, but for me it is the egg smell that is just BLEURRGHHH YUCK. Good thing that it dries quick so I only have to put up with the smell for 10 minutes. The Rub Rub Rub also have this weird smell.. it sort of smells like cleaning products. I quite like cleaning product smell though.... because it smells um... clean.

Anyone a fan of Lush? any recommendations for things to buy? They have so many stuff. I was pretty overwhelmed.

I stopped by Rozelle markets on the way. It was already a bit late so people are packing up. Saw the cutest Dachshund pin but it was expensive so I didn't buy. Then I went back home and ummm went shopping again for these...

Dorothy Perkins sent me an email saying that they are having 30% off selected items, so I went for a browse and found that they have a further 10% off sale items. Sweet. The further 10% only applies for the polkadot top though. I then went to look for another code and found a further 15% code that works for the dresses. Epic. I paid $60 for these three goodies. I have been after a good stripe dress and a nice plain maxi dress. I think all of these will look nice in the upcoming autumn/winter. I've had great experience with Dorothy Perkins so I'm hoping that these will be in decent quality and fits well.

There's always this argument in Vogue forums about buying a good quality item for a high price once or buying a lot of cheapie clothes (you know what I mean right???) I'll let this kiddo explain my opinion on this:

Honestly I don't need to have a super-quality basic or some other clothes to last for 5 years. It is more likely that I'll get sick of it in a year or so. So I just don't get the point of getting $100 T-Wang plain shirt whilst I can buy a nice one for $10ish from Dotti. Different story with bags and shoes though. I'm not a bag lady so I usually wear one bag everyday for a long long time. For this reason I like my bag to be reasonably good quality. Bags from Strandbags or Collette just don't cut it for me. I also insist on leather shoes. Sorry vegans, but synthetic heels really, really hurts my feet. I'm fine with synthetic flat sandals though. Which side are you on?

Sitting on the couch watching Die Hard 4 with a bottle of mango cider now. Yum. Enjoy your weekend peeps xx

  1. Haha! Love that gif! I would love to have both! But can only afford one ;) but I'm happy because I love to shop and buy new things and have new pieces to look forward to - so disposable fashion works for me. And I also feel (slightly) less guilty about spending on things I don't really NEED.
