Puppet In Love

A few days ago, E received our order from Threadless! The title of this thread comes from the name of one of the tees,

Puppet In Love

Maple VS Apy

As much as I love the designs, I'm just a little disappointed that they weren't printed on AA tees, but instead, Threadless' own tees which seem alot thinner.

A few recent purchases,

I'm loving the look of simple staples but with a little twist right now (think Bassike!).

I've always wanted to get this colour as it seemed like it was the perfect dark grey. So glad I came across this!

It's actually a light pink shade, no idea why the picture is white!

And a Cherry Culture haul with B where we got lots of NYX items with it's 20% off sale. Can't wait for it to arrive!

Is this not perfection?

I saw this and fell in love.

Love the asymmetrical contrast, the way it ruffles so beautifully, and how it looks so effortless. Oh dear. If only it didnt come with a price tag of $386, USD, if only AUD is as strong as it was a few month ago.

For now on my poor student's budget, I might have to settle for this,

And yes, grey is my new black.

Hello Kitty for MAC

I think by now we've all seen pictures of this collection, but nevertheless I'm going to add my 2 cents!

Like always, Australia was behind with the release. I managed to get a CP for both Beauty Powder Blushes from the US. They look so sheer, but apply beautifully!

Tippy, Fun & Games

Is it a bit excessive if I want to buy backups of both of these?

A lovely girl CPed me Cute-ster, which was meant to be K's 18th birthday present, but I couldn't get it in time. The question now is whether to keep it or sell it!

Hopefully I can drop by MAC tomorrow and have a look at the collection in person. I'm tempted by these lashes,
which is somewhat reasonable at about $18. I had been eyeing the Beauty Powders for a while now and just can't bring my to spend $100+ for something that will hardly show up on my skin. But the compacts are so gorgeous... Decisions decisions!

Mac Grand Duos Collection

This collection came out a few days ago, but I haven't been able to see it in person yet. Some of the colours, especially Love Rock and Moon River is tempting me, but I'm not sure if I'll get them. I love how beautiful mineralize blushes come out in swatches, but on my cheeks, it's so sheer!


M·A·C makes the next move with Grand Duos: Mineralize Blush with a marbleized mélange on one side, and a complementary mono-shade on the other. A sophisticated but simple new way to get your vital minerals!
(From MAC website)

Mineralize Blushes: $50AUD

  • Light over Dark - Orange yellow mélange / Deep brown
  • Moon River - Blue pink mélange / Pale yellow pink
