2013 Stationery Haul

One of my favourite things about being in school was the ‘back to school’ stationery shopping period. There was something so exciting about having a fresh load of pens and notebooks to start the year. And yes, I realize how sad this sounds. As I’m no longer in school and my workplace provides my office supplies, I tend to treat myself to a few bits and pieces at the beginning of each year to help me stay on track with blogging.

2013 Desk Calendar

Weekly Goals Pad

Day Planner

Printed Notepad

A4 Display Book

All of the above items are from Kikki-K, and I’ll also be purchasing some new highlighters and pens/markers from Officeworks when I finally get around to going into the store.

Essie Haul

OzSale often have tempting nail polish sales, and although I’m still not 100% sure about whether the stock is geniune I always manage to get sucked into buying something. This time around I ordered four shades from Essie: Merino Cool, Funny Face, Pansy and Boat House. (note: It was decided by the Project 100 Pan hive mind that nail polish is not counted as a new purchase)

Beauty Haul: Bobbi Brown

After hearing the news that Katie Holmes had been appointed as the first celebrity face of Bobbi Brown, I felt the urge to buy some of their products (well played Bobbi Brown). I’m really happy with everything that I ordered except for the sparkle eyeshadow in bone, as it doesn’t seem to do much. There is no colour payoff and only a hint of glitter when applied to the eyelid. Out of everything I ordered this would be the one product I wouldn’t recommend. Other than that I really like what I bought, and the other items that I purchased were; blush in nectar, eyeshadow in shell, rich lip colour lipstick in sweet nectar and the illuminating bronzing powder in antigua. (disclaimer: all of these products were purchased by me prior to embarking on project 100 pan!)

Bath and Body Works Haul

(A small disclaimer before we start – I purchased all of these things before embarking on my strict budgeting regime, just so we’re clear) I had a purpose for ordering all of these things from Bath + Body Works a month or so ago, but I can’t for the life of me remember what it was. At any rate, I ordered them and here they are. Out of everything I ordered the standouts are the ‘sweet on Paris’ body lotion and the ‘coconut water’ candle, both of which smell divine.
