This week, I took advantage of a sale on a favourite website, where there was a discount on all MAC. I got the Play It Cool palette from Tartan Tale, Dazzleglasses in Jingle Jangle and Roman Holiday (have been wanting these 2 for ages), Dazzleglass Creme in Do It Up, OCC Lip Tar ‘Trollop’ and a La Femme blush in Misty Plum.

I got Gold Deposit MSF on ebay, and Manic Panic’s ‘Virgin’ Pressed White Powder,Green Envy and After Midnight lipsticks.

I’m going back next week to try to return the Clinique moisturizer…hopefully they’ll at least give me store credit or something.

Weekend plans: More portfolio work.

Best body lotion: Neutrogena Light Sesame Body Lotion! I LOVE this stuff forever, it’s total HG for me. I’m not a big body lotion person because I hate how long it takes most of them to sink in, plus I’m not a big fan of all those fruity smells. This one is light, sinks in easily, moisturizes, and smells kind of like the beach. In a good way.

Haul: Chanel Universal Bronze and a Maybelline One by One waterproof mascara

Weekend plans: I want to clean my flat, do my weekly shopping and read a book.

Best body lotion: I normally don’t use body lotion, but the one mady by Nivea is the best.

Haul: Extremely small haul this week. Guerlain Terra Inca Sublime Radiant Powder (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!) and Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Evasion.

Weekend plans: Some shopping tomorrow. Need some new summer shoes.

Best body lotion: I don’t have dry skin at all, so I prefer something very light like Eminence Organics Naseberry Body Lotion.

Haul: I’ll be visiting my MAC counter today! (Can’t wait!) I’ll pick up a MSF and probably a lippie. My friend also came back from Korea and got me two Estee Lauder products which I’m really excited about. And since the week has been pretty tiring for me, I might treat myself to a makeup shopping spree since I also need to buy my sister her gift.
Weekend Plans: Sister’s birthday bash! She and my brother will be cooking and baking the whole day so that’ll be really fun.
Best Body Lotion: I love the classic Nivea moisturizing cream. I have a couple of it in my purse and some scattered around the house, it really works well for me.

I can’t believe it has already almost been a year since that palette came out…time flies!

Weekend plans: Relaxing, studying, hanging out with my dad for Father’s Day.

Best body lotion: C. Booth’s Tahitian Monoi Body Souffle, it’s the best stuff ever. Spreads easily, absorbs fast and keeps me soft all day without being sticky.
