New Purchase: Sportsgirl, The Body Shop and Greece!

I know it hasn't been too long since my last new purchase post but I got a little busy with online shopping when I was looking after Gus. Being alone on a Sunday because your boyfriend is at the snow will do that to any reasonable person. I used to work in the middle of Sydney CBD and had everything at close reach but now I don't have that luxury anymore so online is just a little easier. I love ducking into Sportsgirl for a little peak and the online store is no different. The danger is also that they offer free shipping so it is even easier to add to cart.

These Egyptian Studs were 9.95 and I love the combination of red, silver and triangles. They even match my currently red nails.
The Zig Zag ring set was $14.95 and is perfect if you want to dip your toes into rose gold without fully committing. I am learning to love rose gold and it is growing on me more and more.

You can also play up the zig zags and wear them seperately or tri-fingered. It does look like the rings have sold out online but perhaps you can find them in store if you are a fan.
Next up is some delightful products from The Body Shop and I scored absolute bargains. They were having a bye-bye sale and it didn't take me long to shop up a storm. The Maroccan Spa Wisdom Scrub was $5, previously $44.95. The Love ETC Body Wash and Body Lotion were also $5 each down from $18.95 and $23.95.
And can I just add, the Spa Wisdom scrub is the best I have ever used. It is so soft, so decadent and smells amazing. It is the perfect winter blanket scrub because it is gentle on your skin whilst doing its dreary task. I should have bought three more because I have a feeling this won't last long.
I also bought these limited edition goodies. An eye palette called A La Mode ($14.95 down from $49.95), a Tailored Cheek Tint ($4 down from $32.95) and an Illuminating Face Base ($5 down from $44.95) which actually looks quite similar to Benefit's Watt's Up.
The colours are fantastic and I can't wait to dig into the pink shade. In high school I almost always wore pink or silver eye shadow, I just loved it so much.
Then there were the Nature's Mineral Eye Colours which I couldn't resist considering I have used the similar bronzer and brush for the past three years. They were $5 each, down from $24.95.
From bottom left we have Platinum Shimmer, Bronzed Amber, Molten Bronze, Radiant Graphite.
These aren't technically purchases but I got some presents from Gus' mum from Greece. These necklaces are gorgeous and I love them.
But the bag has really won my heart. It's handmade, crafted out of leather and it smells divine. It's so clean and fantastic!
I almost feel like I went to Greece now. Almost.

What have you bought lately? How do you feel about rose gold? Are you a fan of bargains?

  3. Oh my god! Cheap Body Shop purchases! I am so jealous. I LOVE body shop stuff but I don't buy it because it is really expensive. I would have gone crazy. I only wish one of the stores around Brisbane was closing down and I'd stock up!
