Post-Birthday Haul.

The best thing about signing up for mailing lists and newsletters? The influx of birthday vouchers you receive each year. I would have received 10-15 birthday vouchers, coupons and goodies this year, so I treated myself to a little late night shopping trip on Friday.


Kikki.K Planner ($10 off)
I live my life by my diary, so naturally the first thing I bought was a 2017 planner. This one is absolutely gorgeous - the pretty foiling and watercolour design is almost too much for me to handle and the month sectioning tabs, gratitude section, space to enter mantras, notes, reminders and to record water intake just make it that much more special.

Urban Decay Naked3 Palette
This was the only item that I ended up paying full-price for, but you know what? I'm not even mad. I've been lusting after Naked3's rose gold toned goodness for my whole entire life (it even made an appearance on my birthday wish list) and it's finally mine.

The Little Paris Bookshop ($7.50 off)
I passed up the opportunity to buy this book two-or-so weeks back and I wasn't able to get the damn thing out of my head since. Of course I rushed back to buy it. I feel complete now.
"On a beautifully restored barge on the Seine, Jean Perdu runs a bookshop; or rather a 'literary apothecary', for this bookseller possesses a rare gift for sensing which books will soothe the troubled souls of his customers. The only person he is unable to cure, it seems, is himself. He has nursed a broken heart ever since the night, twenty-one years ago, when the love of his life fled Paris, leaving behind a handwritten letter that he has never dared read. His memories and his love have been gathering dust - until now. The arrival of an enigmatic new neighbour in his eccentric apartment building on Rue Montagnard inspires Jean to unlock his heart, unmoor the floating bookshop and set off for Provence, in search of the past and his beloved."
I can't wait to get my eyeballs around it.

T2 Strawberries and Cream tea cube ($4.50 off)
This was one of those "I have a few dollars left on my gift card that expires next month so I'll just buy something" purchases. T2 has been a favourite store of mine for years now, and I've tried a whollllllleeeee lotta teas in my day, but the strawberries and cream offering sounded (and smelt) too good to pass up. A lovely addition to my tea collection for the Spring months.

Pandora Charms ($100 off)
I ended up getting two Pandora charms thanks to Jesse's mum (what a legend) - the Oceanic and the Libra star sign, both of which were also on my birthday wish list.


I also placed some sneaky online orders at Bardot, Novo and The Body Shop, so keep your eyes peeled for more haulin' posts in the near future! I think I did pretty good considering I had less than sixty minutes to rush to various stores all over the city until everything closed for the night. Not too shabby for an hour's work, eh?
