I have been watching a new person on YT lately, and if you have been reading my blog long ago, you know how often I am suckered into buying something just because I have seen it featured in a YT video. If you read lollipop26, she recently 'recommended' some YT people she likes to watch, and one day I found myself browsing and watching this new girl's videos. She is none other than Dara (YT username BelleDuJourNYC) and her blog is equally nice to read. She is so pretty, and she hauls fabulous stuff, and she lives in NYC, works as a fashion buyer. I am sold! Haha. I am always suckered into buying stuff if I think that a particular person I am watching/ reading as good taste, and Dara is very urban modern chic and cool. I likey.
And that explains why I bought the following two items. *shamefaced*
Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey Cologne (S$190 for 100ml, S$95 for 30ml) I am not going to mess up the description of this scent, so after a check at the website, this is the "definition" of the fragrance.
'a delicious and fruit fragrance that tells a story of an early morning visit to London's Covent Garden Flower Market, a sweetly scent oasis in the heart of the city. This youthful fragrance wraps the notes of enticing fruits and the delicate spring flowers in the warmth of acacia honey'
There is a Jo Malone store in Singapore, at Ngee Ann City (two levels above Zara). The packaging is to die for, so luxe, so chic, I feel like I am buying a present for myself! Love love the bag, the box, the ribbon, for that price... well, maybe it is expected after all. I am so not complaining! :) I am also tempted to get the body lotion... but it is OOS.... hmmm..... I have been wanting to get a perfume lately, most likely Chanel's ALLURE, which is in the same price range if not slightly more. However, I think I am very very contented with this for now. It smells divine, seriously. I actually tried on this perfume the previous day, and by the end of the day, the residual scent was still fresh and peachy, which means my body acids is reacting well to this fragrance. It is so meant to be!
This will replace my lemming for Chanel's ALLURE which I have been thinking of re-purchasing, but well, I am very contented for now! :) Can't wait to spray this all over!
And the next purchase is a Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in 187 Genial. This is from the Summer 2010 collection, which is selling out fast, if not already OOS at the counters. This costs $44, which is cheaper than the Rouge Allure Lacquer (S$49). The packaing is super sleek, it is the 'clicking' one, which I thought is so chic! Makes you want to whip out the lipstick and touch up all the time.
The colors of the pictures don't do this color justice. It looks different in all the various lighting conditions, ranging from a true bright coral, to fuschia and also almost neon. I like how it brightens up my face without making me look like a clown.
That's all, I think I better stop hauling til my Hong Kong trip!
Thanks for reading.
