New Purchase - the Sister Edition

My sister is wonderful and I do like spoiling her. She is 15 and I remember very well how it was to not have much money when I was that age so I decided to take her on a spree. I also needed some pink lip colours so we went on a little hunt.



We spent a couple of hours browsing and finding different things. My sister has gorgeous long hair and she has been using a travel hair dryer on it, I therefore was on a mission to find her one, plus a round brush and a heat protecting spray. She has been redecorating her room so we found a new lamp and a heart shaped cactus. For the face we found my favourite concealer, eye cream and eyebrow pencil. It was a great haul and she is obviously loving it.



I also found some old friends - my favourite tv show and skincare range (Origins). I resisted and didn't buy either.



I did however manage to pick up lots of jewelry on sale, it's gold all that glimmers. When I was in high school I worked in an accessories store called Glitter where my love for all things shiny started. I also got a lipstick and a tint gloss from Maybelline - they are both hot pink of course.



It wasn't easy to find the right shade!



I also bought a couple of cocktail rings and Alice bands to keep the fringe at bay.



Later in the evening I met a girlfriend for coffee and I had a Snickers Coffee - it was so good and yet so bad. It's a mocha with whipped cream and chocolate caramel pieces.



I adore giving my sister beauty wisdom, for instance yesterday she asked if taking solarium was bad for you. She then received a 10 minute lecture so needless to say she won't be doing it. I also taught her to fill in her brows, apply eye cream and concealer. Perfect sister bonding. I also want to make sure she knows how important it is to be comfortable in your own skin and I keep reminding her.

Today is my last day in my hometown, tomorrow I am going to Oslo for the day and on Friday I am going back to Sydney.

Hope you had a special leap day and let me know if you have bought anything exciting lately. Xxxx

  3. Hi Ingrid! That sounds like so much fun - the next next thing to having a shopping spree for yourself, is to have one for your sister (I am guessing as I don't have a sister, just a brother - he's not really into hair straighteners and lipstick). So, I am dying to hear about your lipstick purchase - is it good, ok, bad? I am forever searching for the perfect hue - I am intrigued to hear about the need for pink. Is it purely the challenge you are up to??? xox

  5. Haha., yes it was good fun. My big brother isn't into hair straighteners either, that's for sure. I am still trialling the lipstick and lip tint but so far I am loving the colour and the longevity is quite good. I'll post more on it when I am back in Sydney xx
