We went to Northlands (I think I've been there once in the last 5 years), but it's one of the only shopping malls open in Christchurch at the moment! We usually go to Westfield, so we decided to try somewhere different.
I walked around half the mall thinking, 'why can I not buy anything? I think I'm allergic to shopping'. Well that jinxed it, I then went on to spend $350. ($40 of that was going halves with an exercise class card with mum).
So here is what I got:
First of all just a couple of makeup things:
Nail Polishes: $2 each from the 1 to $8 shop.
BYS Summer Storm Palette: $8 from Glassons
BYS Mega Shine Coffee Lipgloss: $8 from Glassons
I did a little NOTD with the nail polishes. I love the gold one, and what a bargain for $2! I applied 2 coats of each. My only problem is it took a long time to dry, and a couple of my nails are a bit smudged. 2-3 days later and it's barely chipped though! I would probably get some more shades.
It looks pretty in the swatch....not so much on my lips. I doubt I will use this much. It's just not a 'natural' looking colours. Looks a bit muddy.
My only disappointing purchase of the day.
I basically bought it for the purple colour. Which is lucky, because this palette is not very pigmented at all.
I did an EOTD with it yesterday, using all three colours, and only the purple was visible, no matter how much I put on.
I will definitely use the purple, but the others not so much.
I bought this dress from TEMT. It was $40. It looks nicer on than off.
I bought two skivvys for work. They were $16 each. Great for winter. I have always hated tops like this, but I really liked it when I tried it on!
I bought these 2 pairs of skinny jeans (but the comfy stretchy material) from Glassons for $30 each. One pair is black, the other a dark purple. It's a bit hard to tell in the photo.
I've been looking for these boots for over a year. Finally I found them! So comfy, I will live in them all winter for sure. $50 from the Number 1 Shoe Warehouse.
Ankle boots from Farmers. These were $70 down to $49. I also got some underwear from Farmers, because most of it was half price. Farmers always have sales now. There was also 15% off OPI. I walked away before I could look! I should have got some eyeliner, but decided to wait.
My mum and I finished off the day by going out for tea. We went to The Running Bull. It was great! Definitely going to go again. Mum had a chicken burger and I had a BLAT. 6/10 restaurants in Christhurch now! 4 to go.
So there we go, $350 less, and going on holiday in 2 weeks. Oooops.
Did you buy anything exciting this weekend?
