I've been such a good girl ( saying this makes me want to sing Shakira's song Underneath your clothes, "FOR BEING SUCH A GOOD GIRL HONEY", anyone? LOL ). I've been really good when it comes to spending these past months. I stopped
myself from buying unnecessary things but I know that this habit would not last forever, sometimes you just gotta treat yourself with some goodies. Do you agree? :D Today, I'm sharing you the things I bought recently. I was feeling spendy at Sephora few weeks ago so I bought some Nars beauty products. I also bought myself some lifestyle essentials.
Moleskin Agenda - I bought myself an agenda from Kate Spade for this year but I was not satisfied of using it. The size of the agenda is huge. It was not ideal to carry it with me to school as it adds a lot of weight in my bag. My school bag is already heavy with all the stuffs I carry with me such as my laptop and some notebooks. I bought the planner because it looked so pretty when I first saw it (aha, I get so excited when I see something pretty). I like to carry a planner with me so I can write some important date and notes wherever I am. A lesson for you all: "Don't buy things just for the aesthetic, think about the functionality too". I got myself a new one that I can use until the end of 2016. I had Moleskin agendas in the past and I loved them! They are simple and practical.
Voluspa French Bourbon Vanille Candle - Yes, this is a lifestyle essential, as shallow as it sounds, this is a LIFESTYLE ESSENTIAL! I love Bath and Body Works' candles but I love Voluspa's more. I would love to try Diptyque candles but I'm too poor to buy them #poorstudentstruggles. Anyway, this is one of my favorite candles. It has a really special vanilla scent. Even though you don't burn this candle, its lovely aroma lingers in my room. This is actually a repurchased as I always just buy the small cans. Voluspa candles are expensive but they are really worth it.
NARS Audacious lipsticks in Audrey - Was it last year when girls went crazy on these lipsticks? I'm one of them now. hehe I would love to buy more of these but these lipsticks come with a hefty price tag, therefore one is enough for now. I picked up "Audrey" because it reminds me of Audrey Hepburn. Nars describes as a "red currant" color by NARS, a really beautiful red plum shade. I love the formulation of this lipstick, it applies really well on the lips and feels so smooth. It kind of reminds me of MAC's satin lipsticks but this one is slightly better. It also lasts a long time compared to other lipsticks I own.
NARS Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross - This has been on my wishlist for such a long time. I wanted to buy a BECCA highlighter but they don't carry their products in our local Sephora store. I just opted for "Albatross" after browsing the beauty department. This looks white on the pan and even in the swatch below but trust me, when blended, it becomes a golden sheen on the skin. This is such a pretty highlighter, it used to be so popular but with so many highlighters in the market, this has taken a back seat.
