hauling lovin'

me with my amazing $2.50 shoes
I'm currently writing up two essays for uni. ugh, both due on monday and i'm going out tomorrow so must get it done. i caught up with my good friend Lory today, was heaps of fun as i went down to her area (east/south melbourne) and we went westfield/southland & DFO (moorabbin) such great bargains to be found!

photowhoring of the day;


i made a video on what i bought: i spent under $50.

sorry the lighting is kinda dark! my baad.

a few past FOTDs this week;
both using sportsgirl eyeshadow palettes.

~wearing sportsgirl fortune teller palette.


~wearing sportsgirl star of the show palette.

earlier this week (on tuesday?) my items from the US came. a huge haul from MAC, sephora, cherryculture & ELF. too much to take pics of so i did a video. i couldn't even fit it all in one vid hence there's two parts to the video;



i've also dropped off two resumes this week for jobs who have positions available, both in retail so hope i get one of them! :)
off to right those damn essays/reports now!

lollipop ♥

hello! :) so i would like to say, i am or have been, a huge slacker. I somehow slept in today and skipped my classes for uni. i know, shameee. but i really could not be bothered and it was like an hr and a half till my class when i woke up but it takes me 2.5 hours public transport so i wouldn't have made it. feel so bad still but oh well, what can ya do, i've already slept in so blah!
I gave Sammy a bath today (smelly sammy has been his name the past few days) and then i headed off to highpoint to pick up some sportsgirl beauty items before their further 30% off sale items ended. I then found out they had a buy one eyeshadow get one free offer, so $5 for an eyeshadow. woop woop :) Priceline has 20% off eye make up atm so i also picked up a mascara (this was one that i used to use about a year ago so hopefully it's still good?) anyway i was sick of my lash blast and wanted a change so hello full n soft.
Also i've finally got my hands on NARS laguna, brand new in it's box too :) I got it in a Makeupalley swap. (i swapped a MAC blush, MAC eyeshadow & Revlon lippie for this)
happy with it as it's great for light skinned people like moi, is not orange and adds warmth to your face.

Didn't have time to snap an outfit of the day for today but have one from the weekend;
top: vintage
shorts: random boutique
(oh gosh u can see my photowhoring on photobooth in the BG *vain moment sheesh*)

Wanna see something cute?
AHAH! hehe :)
I'm in need of a new job, my job isn't really giving me much (if any) shifts due to a cut back on how much they can spend on employees' shifts. damn it. first preference is of course full timers so blah. We all know i do not do well without money so gotta get my job hunting skills on.

lala land :)

so this week has been hectic! my first ever uni assessment was due. It was a 20 minute oral presentation on marketing research and we worked in teams of two. It's only only week 3 of uni but we offered to go cos the first group to go gets an extra grade (hello high distinction please-a class mate was sitting next to the tutor marking and said we got near perfect marks so with the extra grade, fingers crossed she saw right, i'm pretty stoked!)
I caught up for coffee with the lovely Louise on tuesday, we went on the search for the autumn collection of ulta3 polishes but ended up on a hectic exercise routine walking all around everywhere haha.


^i have red ear muffs on but you can't really see it :( but they're there!

I shall now leave you with some photowhoring - my beloved photobooth app ♥ haha!
oh and i also trimmed my hair again, shorter fringe ya know :)


+ can't forget sammy! i absolutely adore him :)

oh and PS. saw the cute guy mentioned in previous post @ uni today (friday) again. I'm so curious to what course he's actually doing cos i see him in 3/4 of my units. The only one he's not in is the marketing one, which is a smart move cos i hate it, i didn't even know we could choose our units for first year though. damn. And i've said previously i would talk to him but i'm too shy =p so maybe he can just continue to rock up to the same classes so i can perve on him when im bored- JOKES. ;)

rouge coco lovely

wearing chanel rouge coco in #17 Orchidee.

I'm on a strict saving regime cos i have things to pay off but i could not resist such good bargains. Myer was having a $20 off when you spend $100 or over deal. And i also had a $20 gift card. So i purchased 2 of their new Rouge Coco lipsticks, i ended up only paying $60 for both of them instead of $50 for each of them. It's cheaper than strawberrynet!

I may only keep mademoiselle (no.5) as i think orchidee (no.17) is just too bright and a bit garish. I may exchange it for Egerie (no.6). I also think orchidee is a bit too warm for my skin tone. The SA applied it at the counter for me so i got to rock it for a few hrs and decide.

^me & moi lippie!

here are swatches from temptalia;
mademoiselle is the middle color here: and egerie (my possible exchange) is the color on the right next to it.

orchidee is the middle color here: I think the color on the left to it (the blue toned pink) may look better on me.
damn it should have tried it! there were just so many colors!

I also picked up 2 maybelline color sensational lippies as Target has them for only $12 at the moment (they retail for $17-18 normally).

These swatches are off Makeupalley & aren't mine;

make me pink:

pink me up:

i also picked up a really nice simple stripe tunic dress;

Sammy being cool;
^mid yawning action.

steal my beret

I'm feeling a bit funny lately. I think i'm just everywhere in my life atm, I need to get things back on track. I'm stressed about my uni school work too, as i have a first assessment due next week. It's group work and my partner lives literally on the other other side of melbourne and works full time so it's hard to actually get the work done. It's neither my favourite or strong subject either, MARKETING. ugh, and i need to get a report and presentation done.
My 18th birthday is coming up in around 3 weeks as well so i have to get a move on and get the invites out and organize it. I've created the guest list at the club but that's about it so far.
**okay i've just done the invites, but i have not finalized the place for dinner yet. it's between 2 restaurants, one's an all you can eat so i'm leaning towards that cos people can munch to their desire.
^me being cool on photo booth :D haha
^again with Sammy.

I slept in epicly today. I think i woke up at around 3pm, it felt soooo good. I'm just so tired from commuting nearly everyday so far away. I also gave myself a hair cut/trim yesterday cos i was just so so so sick of my too long hair. It's still pretty long and i literally chopped off at least 10cms. It was getting to the point where my longest layer nearly touched meee ass. haha :p

^kisses from sammy!

~Urban decay sin primer potion as base, NARS south pacific eyeshadow duo on inner & mid to outer lid, MAC satin taupe in crease & outer v. Wearing chanel rouge allure in frivole on lips. ♥

what i wore:
a light peachy pink and white floral vintage style dress with tan leather belt.

me & sleepyhead;

I think i will at least clean a bit of my room up as it's so messy i just hate it. Like it's now beyond messy. I just have things EVERYWHERE. and i'm having trouble actually finding things grrr! so i'm off now to clean clean CLEAN! :)

^two things i love most (aside from family and friends :p)

moi & my beret.
