I am excited to tell you gals what I found in my shopping trip today. Husband, husband's family and I went shopping at the Westfield Shopping Mall. The first 15 minutes as I was browsing in the shoe department wasn't that exciting because my husband was getting bored ... ;-) I know, tell me about it, what is it about men that they simply become tired or bored or sleepy in the shopping mall even for mere 10 or 15 minutes??? So I decided to walk around on my own so that he could go hunt for things that interest him in the men's department. We parted and go on our separate ways.
From then on, it was very productive for me. First I made a stop at Sephora, tested some new fragrances. I must say Miss Dior Cherie
smells the best.
The smell isn't too heavy and actually rather sophisticated. It's definitely good for going out on dates especially during the evening.
Next stop, Banana Republic, since I needed additional work clothes. But, I only ended up buying one blouse though which was on sale.
Then into Macy's. I think it must have been fate, I saw the wedge shoes from Naturalizer on the shelf with the exact basil green color that I loved so much. Without further ado, I paid and bought it.
Trust me, the shoe is comfortable and not heavy as you think it might be from how it looks. Another huge advantage is that it added an extra 2 inches height without the pain and soreness that you get from high heels.
Beauty section is around the corner of the shoes department, I couldn't help but to look for a white eye pencil that has become a new trend lately. It is supposed to make our eyes bigger; it's not the convention of black eyeliner makes eyes appear bigger anymore. Both my favorite counters - Dior and Chanel don't carry any white pencil for eyes, but Lancome does.Le Crayon Khol
, the smoky, smudgy eyeliner was voted the Best of Beauty Hall of Fame by Allure. It glides on skin very easily and it blends beautifully. Love white!
Have you seen the new eye palette from Lancome? Color Design Pop Cherub Palette
in cherie shade. I am confident that you will love it too.
The green and silver look amazing. These two colors come shimmering. The pink and brown are matte but I was told that if I use in combination of pink and shimmering silver, I will still create that shimmering effect. The green, frankly is not just any ordinary green, you got to see it.
The case is as nice as its color palette. It's a keeper. Silver chrome engraved with Lancome signature. This limited edition unit is rather expensive I think, but hopefully I will make good use of it. One minute when I checked it on Macy's online it was still there, but the next minute I believe the item has sold out. It's no longer on macys.com.
So, how much did I spend?
Blouse from Banana Republic: $19.99
(original price $39.99)
Wedge shoes from Naturalizer: $49.99
(original price $59)Eyeliner from Lancome
: $22Eye Shadow from Lancome
Total Spending: $141.98
Worth it. I totally enjoyed the saturday afternoon, spending 3 hours in the mall looking through various beautiful things. I would do it again. :-)
