My year end collective haul! Hey ladies! Hope December has been a fruitful month for everyone! So many people are busy traveling to be with their friends and family and some are only just done with celebrating Christmas! I know December is a big deal to many people but for most of us in South East Asia or at least in Singapore, Christmas isn't celebrated like in Europe with more religious/traditional meaning but more because it's something internationally recognized and an event everyone can make money from!
If you ask me what I like about December/Christmas, I'll honestly tell you I love this time of year because of the food and tons of sales! I've been purchasing and hauling lots of bits and bobs the last two months or so and here is my big fat collective haul to end the year with!
Continue below for the details of my haul!
|Special: Year End Collective Haul! (New Look, Charles & Keith, Laniege, Threadless.com, Addiction cosmetics)|
|The sequins up close! They don't overlap so the layer doesn't make the top too heavy, the back of the tops are of an opaque without any sequins, I really like this, so your top doesn't get caught on anything!|
|From Cotton On, a super simple, super cute cropped navy striped top! This would be perfect for the beach or if you've got the slender tummy to show off this would be great with high waisted bottoms!|
|A stretchy pair of black jeans and a non-stretchy slightly distressed pair! Both from New Look!|
|See that gorgeous color, I love love the darkness around the top and the slight distressing...I don't have any pairs like this and actually rarely wear long pants/jeans in Singapore! Can't wait to wear these!|
|If you need a pair that stretches and fits very comfortably no matter your size or fat rolls, make sure your jeans have Polyester or Elasthane or both...otherwise anything with more than 95% cotton will pretty much be non-stretchy.|
|THIS DRESS. I saw it from meters away and knew right away I wanted it and had to have it! It has the most beautiful waterfall metallic look and is so super soft and feminine! I love the simple design too!|
|This is what you actually see in person! The finish of the exterior material is like a liquid metal! It's sooo stunning! Great for a night out for or for some special occasion! It's such a simple dress to wear and style!|
|I dropped by The Face Shop while their having their 15% off and bought my favorite nose strips from them! I'm not a fan of the new packaging...and sorta regret not buying more back ups! These are soooo good at getting out the black and white heads! (My review here!)|
|T-shirts from Threadless.com! I ordered this bunch when there was a big ass sale! It helps to cover for the shipping cost to Singapore! The first shirt is for me! It's a bunch of cute blobby animals sleeping on an ice cream cone! The beer bear shirt and the kitten launcher both are part of my boyfriend's Christmas gift!|
|Cat Internet shirt (because the bf is another cat lover), a Ramen on the run (because who doesn't love ramen?) and a special Adventure Time shirt in a beautiful cool blue color! (his favorite cartoon show)|
|The 6 shirts I ordered from Threadless.com! A great site for those looking for spunky lovely and cute shirts, there's something for everyone there!|
|Two years after buying a similar set to give to a blogger friend in our swap I had to get this starter trial set from Laneige! You get a good size of 6 of their best selling products from their moisture line! It was such at steal at only $39 SGD! Each product full size is at least $35-40 SGD.|
|At the same time I had to pick up a new tub of their water sleeping pack. It was a coincidence that I managed to get this in the limited edition Sparkling Party box! It's hot pink all over and on the inside which is lovely! I've used up two tubs of this in the past. This over night gel mask seriously plumps up the skin and makes your skin feel sooo soft and renewed in the morning. Works so much better than sleeping packs from other brands! (See my review of this here!)|
|Hot pink wallet from Charles & Kieth! For those who don't know (which is pretty much everyone) this is my first full sized wallet. On a day to day basis I use a coin pouch looking thing that's much smaller that came in a set of toiletry bags from Victoria's Secret. After picking out a wallet for my best friend, I just had to get one for myself! The color is sooo stunning and there was like 6 designs featuring this color in store at the time!|
|Chunky black strappy wedge heels from Charles & Keith!! I've been searching for a pair like this! Black, sleek, platform, a low degree of heel and exposed toes! These are sooo damn comfortable and would be awesome with dresses!|
|FINALLY...THE BEST FOR LAST! This is what I received from my best friend! Basically I got her to get me a bunch of make up from the very exclusive brand Addiction by Ayako, the creator of this brand used to work for NARS hence the similarity in packaging. I also told her to throw in some green tea goodies and she did! All the way from Japan! (My best friend purchased from this site!)|
|Addiction cosmetics by Ayako, Tinted Moisturizer, Glow Powder Foundation, Blush, Eyeshadow and Cheek Stick! I'm soooo excited and can't wait to review these one by one! The blush and eyeshadow up close are sooo freaking stunning! (If you want to purchase and you're outside of Japan, check out ichibankao.com, the prices are higher but shipping is included in the prices!)|
