Sales shopping haul

What's a girl to do on a rainy Monday when she doesn't have to go to work? Go shopping instead! The post-Christmas sales started yesterday, but I decided to wait one day before braving the crowds.

I went with my mum, which is always dangerous because I always end up buying a lot, but that's because she's a fantastic bargain hunter. Mum's shopping style: trawl through every rack, every stall, every nook and cranny until she unearths bargains. My shopping style: enter shop, do a quick scan of the racks and the walls, don't see anything that I like, leave within 1 minute of entering.

So here's what I ended up getting today.

First stop: Priceline!
  • Maybelline mascara - The Falsies Blackest Black (I've read so many great reviews about Falsies, but today was the only time I saw it at the shops in AU so I'm excited to try it out! I wonder if it will knock my Max Factor False Lash effects off the current pedestal.)
  • Revlon mascara 3D extreme - blackest black (this was reduced to $6.95AUD from $21.95, bargain)
  • Bourjois 10hour Sleep effect foundation in 74 - this is a bit dark for me actually, but I already have #72, and I generally mix my foundations to get the right colour for me, so this will be perfect.
  • Bourjois Healthy Mix anti-fatigue concealer in 51 light radiance - Priceline had all bourjois items at 50% off.
  • Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Flexible Style Hairspray
I will do a proper review of my purchases when I've had a chance to try them out.

Then went to Myer, didn't get inspired to buy anything... oh yeah just bought some new baking sheets and a pizza cutter, but they're not exciting enough to make it into my post!

The rest of my purchases today were from Kookai, Portmans, Cotton On and Collette. Here they are...
The earrings were 50% off and were only about $4.50AUD. The ring was full price, a whopping $7.95AUD. I love Collette, it's my new fave place to get cheap jewellery.


One-shoulder top from Kookai. Reduced to $30AUD. The colour is a beautiful bright tangerine, which I wasn't really able to capture on film.



Portmans black t-shirt with shoulder detail, reduced to $19.95AUD. I'll be wearing this with a white pencil skirt to work, but I can always wear it more casual with jeans.

Cotton On grey long singlet with black polka dots, reduced to $10AUD. Great for layering.


Kookai singlets in aqua and red, reduced to $15AUD. Great worn under blazers.

I also went to borders and bought a couple of travel books (I love travel writing), and also bought some shorts for my husband from Cotton On just so he doesn't think all I ever buy is stuff for me, LOL.

All up I'm quite happy with the bargains I got! Have you done any post-christmas sales shopping yet? what bargains did you get?


  1. Great purchases! I got a few bargains at Priceline too, I'm tempted to go back for more.

  2. I love priceline, I spend wayyy too much money in there. Do a post on your goodies too, I love seeing what beauty products others are buying.


  3. I'm gonna try my Falsies today Gaby, I have high hopes of it!

  4. Love the ring and earrings! I've never heard of Collette - I'm guessing we don't have it here in Adelaide. :-(

  5. Those earrings are so cuuttee!! I love dangle funky earrings!

  6. Dee, Collette's fairly new in Sydney. In the last 6 months I've been seeing itt spring up at pretty much every shopping centre, so I'm sure it'll make its way to Adelaide soon enough. It's like a posh version of Diva but at half the price!
