Gmarket Haul Jan 2012

Sorry for being MIA for a while now! I have been crazy busy at work and usually I am dead tired after that and I just want to recuperate on weekends.

Anyhow, a belated Happy New Year! This is the first post in 2012 and it's a haul from Gmarket! I am extremely happy with this haul. Received the huge parcel within a week of order and every item turns out perfect and of amazing quality as always from Gmarket.

Let's get on with the haul.

Look at the humongous box! I could barely hold it properly with my arms due to the size although it was not that heavy. The huge box was due to the pair of shoes and bag that I ordered which I love to death. You'll see why below. :)

The loot inside the box

The 4 packages which I opened with thrill!

Everything out from the box - 2 tops, 2 skirts, a handbag and a part of shoes.

First top is this thick burgundy jumper. It feels extremely soft and I love the leopard print collar.

Second top is a hoody with leopard-print ears. How cute is that?!! When I saw it, I knew I had to add it to the cart. Again, thick and extremely well-made.

Third piece is this skirt with bow slim belt which looks really pretty but unfortunately, it's a tad too big for me. I picked size M like I usually do for Gmarket sizing but seems like I should have gotten size S instead. Since returning is not an option now (not worth the shipping cost!), I'll just try to make it work with the belt. At least the length is alright. It's just too big on the waist.

Next is this polka dot skirt which is extremely pretty on. I believe this is free size and it fits perfectly!

I tell you, this pair of shoes is totally gorgeous. One of the two favourite buys this haul. It is of suede material and chunky heels and extremely well-made. Looks really good with black tights. OOTD featuring this anyone?

And finally, is this Celine inspired handbag - another favourite of mine. I was so excited when I saw this. I've been seeing this a lot lately and of course, I can't afford the original Celine. This is huge and of very good quality. I am so happy with this purchase!

That's all for this haul. If you would like to know the links to any of these items, feel free to leave a comment below.

Thanks for dropping by. :)

Beauty Haul - Clinique & J'adore Pink Cookie

I was being cheeky again and went to pick up a couple more stuff from the sale. I couldn't resist, not especially when I saw the price for the Clinique 3 Steps System. I have been wanting to try this out but keep procrastinating due to its price and also I simply have too much products to go through!

The two sets I picked up - Clinique 3 Steps Skincare for Combination Oily and the J'adore Pink Cookie Set

J'adore Pink Cookie - Comes with a tube of body wash and shimmer lotion. Haven't tried this before and I just randomly dropped this into the basket. Any of you have tried this before? How do you like it?

Now my favourite buy - Clinique 3 Steps Skincare System for Combination to Oily

Comes with a huge pouch. Great for travelling!

The goodies inside the pouch - a full sized set and a travel sized set. 

All for £39. Now, does that spell BARGAIN?? How could I resist! The full sized ones are huge. I think this will last me forever! 

I am starting this new routine tomorrow and I hope I would agree to the amazing reviews I've heard so far! I think I might still add a serum in though. What do you girls who are familiar with this routine think? Is this advisable? I am just feeling very insecure if I leave the serums (morning & night) out. Let me know please?

That's all for the short haul. Hope you like it. :)

Boxing Day Haul - Clothing

Hello! This is the second part of my Boxing Day haul. You can find the first part on beauty items here.

Let's get started!

First, from New Look.

White mule, white fleece hoody jacket, pleather shorts and fur coat

Both the shorts and fur coat had sold out size 8 and 10 so I had to get size 12 which was the smallest available size. I was contemplating really hard weather to leave them behind but decided not to with such great bargain. The fur coat is gorgeous and looks ok on, do you think so? The shorts look slightly too big but I think still acceptable though. I'm definitely keeping the coat but will think about the shorts. Let me know if I should keep or return it?

From Berskha

Red fur collar cardigan, leopard print dress and denim jacket

Super love the denim jacket and red cardigan! Again, I was worried about sizing when I picked the cardigan up. I saw it in the store and fell in love but ONLY size L left! Surprisingly though, I put it on and it actually looks flattering! Only the sleeves are slightly too long which is ok, considering this is an outer wear anyway.

From Topshop

Dress coat, skinny soft jeans and collar necklace

Love the coat a lot. I have been looking for a dress coat for ages and finally found it! The fur collar is detachable. The skinny jeans makes my thighs look so slim. LOVES! Lol.

From H&M

Blue shirt, green washed blouse (picture above), front fur jacket and brown skirt

The skirt is too big on me so I will be returning it. I'm still thinking about the blue shirt. It is short in front and long at the back. I don't think it looks flattering on me. 

Finally, from Jane Norman

 Just a red bag!

That's all for my clothing haul. Hopefully I will not be adding anything into the collection anymore as I have been spending wayyyyy too much! Lol. 

Let me know what you've got on Boxing Day! :)

Boxing Day Haul - Beauty + Swatches

Hello! Did you manage to grab all the deals you have in mind yesterday? I went to Westfield Stratford City and Oxford Street yesterday and came back with goodies! Not as much as I expected though. Most probably due to the humongous crowd which I am not a fan of. It was IMPOSSIBLE to enter Next at all and everything in River Island was in a big mess when I entered - not a pretty sight. Eeeeks.

Anyhow, I decided to split my haul to two separate entries - one for beauty and another one for clothing. This post as the title says, is for the beauty items that I manage to picked up. :)

*Swatches to follow at the end of the post*

First up are the goodies from Boots.

2 nail polishes, a lipstick, 3 lip glosses and a lip liner

From Rimmel - Colour Show Off Lipstick in 140 Kiss Me, I Love Lasting Finish Nail Polish in 030 Double Decker Red and Lasting Finish Lip Liner in 011 Spice

A lot of REDS going on here for the festive season! I don't own any red lipstick nor nail polish and I was very inspired to do bright lip look and so I got them. :)

From Collection 2000 - Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Cream in 3 Fairy Cake, 1 Cotton Candy and 2 Powder Puff

I saw this from one of the haul videos by StyleSuzi and I was hooked! They look so gorgeous and I knew I had to get them. I am not a matte lip person but this is not drying at all and look very flattering on. Plus, Boots was having 3 For 2 sale across all Collection 2000 products so I grabbed three!

17 Fast Finish Nail Polish in Revenge

Next up from Superdrug.

Only two items from Look Beauty - Lipslick in 5 Peaches and Nail Pop in 13 Flamingo
Both are matching colours!

And then I went to House of Fraser and pick up the item that I am MOST excited about! 

The Benefit Boxing Day Beauty Gift Set. Look at the gorgeous packaging!

Opening the box reveals the goodies inside.

Hoola Bronzing Powder (full size), Some Kind-a Gorgeous Foundation in Medium (full size), High Beam (sample size) and Bad Gal Lash Mascara (sample size)

This is a total bargain! The two full sized items retail at £23.50 each and this gift set was priced at £29.66. I grabbed it despite not being entirely sure that the foundation shade matches me. However, after speaking to the SA and she assured me that it should match and she wears the same shade too so I could get some idea. I am not a big fan of Benefit just because of its price which is on the expensive side and now I can try these babies out! :)

Swatches for the lip products (all without flash).

Left to Right - Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick in 140 Kiss Me and Rimmel Lasting Finish Lip Liner in 011 Spice

Left to Right - Look Beauty Lipslick in 5 Peaches, Collection 2000 Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Cream in 3 Fairy Cake, 2 Powder Puff and 1 Cotton Candy

That's all for the Beauty haul. Do share with me what you've got. :)
