HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I know it’s very late to say but it’s better late than never. I’ve been meaning to post this for a while now, but I’ve been feeling pretty lazy! So for Christmas/New Year holiday I went out of town for a week to Bandung. I wish I took some photos so I could put them here on my blog, but unfortunately I enjoyed my holiday a little too much and ended up forgetting to take any!
The Christmas and New Year holidays are probably my favourite holiday because there are crazy sales in all directions, and I have been saving a bit of money for a few months to prepare myself (and my bank account!) for all the sales madness. I wanted to show some of the stuff that I bought between December 2015 and early January 2016!
VELVET TOP from BALMAIN X H&M
Yes! I know H&M released the Balmain collection on November 2015, but if you read my post about Balmain X H&M you will know that after a struggle trying to get into the website, I managed to buy one item from the collection from their UK website. I received the top in December, so let’s just say I bought this on December :D! I LOVE this top, I love the material, I love the gold zipper, and I love how it looks classy and very high quality.
ARMY JACKET from NEW LOOK
I’ve been looking everywhere for this Army Patterned jacket, I saw few Army Jackets in other stores, but I didn’t really like them. So I was very happy when I finally find “the one”!
3 TOPS from LOCAL MARKET
I went to a local market in Bandung, and I was lucky enough that they had a lot of sales happening that day. I was just casually looking at the clothes, until I found a very nice black sweater with a silver zipper and buttons on the top part, I asked the lady about the price and was very surprised of how cheap it was, only around Rp.80.000 or $6 USD. So I ended up buying the sweater, a jacket, and a cardigan all in the same price range.
TWO CROP TOPS and ONE TOP from AMAZON.CO.UK
I bought them all of these before Christmas. One is just a white crop top with the words “Work Out” on the front, and the other is long sleeved hoodie crop top with the word “Flawless” on the front. I bought both of these for me to work out in. I generally like to wear a crop top when I work out because it feels lighter and easier for me to move. I also got one more top which is actually from my husband. It’s a long sleeved T-Shirt with the word “wifey” in the front, I know, he’s pretty cheesy like that :D! But I love the top, the material is nice and it’s very comfortable to wear.
WHITE SNEAKERS from ADIDAS
Well I needed new gym shoes, and I don’t know why I’ve been in love with white shoes lately.
RIPPED JEANS from ZARA
I just thought these jeans were very nice, it’s not over the top like some of ripped jeans I seen before, and it’s a “boyfriend” jeans so it’s very comfortable to wear. It was also on sale, with something like 20% off so it was a good deal!
BLUE HIGH HEELS from FOREVER 21
This is actually quite funny but I didn’t actually plan on buying this, I was on my way to a formal dinner party, so I stopped by a mall near the restaurant because I needed to go to the bank, and suddenly my shoe strap broke! Amazing timing, right? I was panicking a little and went to H&M at first but they only had boots available in my size, and boots wouldn’t look good with my outfit at that time. So I went to Forever 21, and found these blue high heels which were literally the only shoes that were available in my size (the struggle of having big feet :(), it’s quite nice, it’s not exactly the kind of shoes that I would usually pick up, but I got it on sale so I have no regrets!
DOUBLE WEAR FOUNDATION from ESTEE LAUDER
If you have read one of my previous post about make-up, you may know that I don’t really wear foundation very often due to my sensitive skin, but literally the one and only foundation that I do have and occasionally use has recently finished. I usually like to wear Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation by Make Up Forever, but since I went to the wrong mall, and there wasn’t a Make Up Forever counter in that mall, I decided to visit the Estee Lauder counter and I ended up buying the Double Wear Make Up To GO, it’s a liquid foundation in a compact form. This foundation works beautifully on my skin so far, But i still prefer my usual Make Up Forever Foundation.
BODY MIST from BATH & BODY WORKS
I’ve always loved Bath & Body Works products, I have bought their Holiday Season Special, Winter Candy Apple Body Butter, and I absolutely loved the smell! So I was extremely happy when I found that they have a Winter Candy Apple Body Mist, and what’s even better? It was 50% off! I love to use body mist before I go for a work out.
