More Lemmings

Gah, shopping is quite addicting!

You KNOW that the item is a permanent item so it won't be discontinued or whatever, but you just HAVE to HAVE IT xD lol.

I have spent way more this year than I would have liked. I am starting to get back to saving though after a "few" purchases this summer. So far I see things that I want, but I'm holding myself off til much later, maybe christmas, because I know it won't be gone.

My goal? save at least $1000 by the end of this year, preferably $2000. My spending needs to go on a diet.

So what have I been lemming?

  • Bootcut jeans from Citizens of Humanity, 7jeans, and Hudson jeans
    --I specifically want Bootcut because although skinny jeans are flattering, I have too many of them and am getting tired of it xD Bootcut jeans are timeless, totally classic, and I feel it's a good investment to have and always flattering to any body shape. Too bad these are like $150-200+ a pop, which is why I will wait a while to get one and hopefully there would be sales in store, or places like Nordstrom Rack.

  • Coffret D'Or, Lunasol, KATE, Lavshuca, Integrate, CastleDew, Aube, etc
    --Asian makeup is such good quality. And of course I like that it's catered towards my skintone. I've become obsessed with milk-tea/beige colored lipsticks lately. I want a simple color that will complete the look but doesn't look boring, but is sophisticated and professional at the same time. I also like that it looks classic. Can't go wrong with that color. I also want other lipcolors too T.T but alas, these asian lipcolors cost like $15-25, definitely a bite out of your pocket. I also RARELY wear lipcolors, but I'm hoping with these non-sticky lipsticks and wearable colors, that I'd pick up on wearing them more often. I'm also wanting eyeshadow palettes. Packaging is amazing!

  • Infinite supply of cute and sexy bras and panties
    -- I don't think a girl can have too many bras... lol. I'm a HUGE fan of Gilly Hicks bras. Great quality and all their bras are always 2 for $40. Can't beat that! Their quality is better than Victoria's Secret in my opinion. VS does have a wider selection of prints for their bras whereas Gilly Hicks has more basic stuff, though they still have a nice selection of floral prints and stripes and fun colors. I love Gilly Hick's undies too, the silky ones. So comfy and 5 for $25 is the same as VS but GH's cotton undies are better quality and softer, and better built for your body curves. I want so many different kinds xD

  • NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow base
    --Fuzkittie loves this and I want to try it out. I've been using my UDPP for a while now and although it's pretty good, it doesn't hold up my eyeshadows 100%. I'm just waiting til I finish my UDPP giant tube, which will take a long time :(

  • Benefit Bronzer in Hoola (or NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer)
    --I want to contour my face, or at least the sides so my face looks a bit slimmer lol. I have heard that NYC bronzer is like $2-3 and works quite well. It's matte and what not, but I haven't tried it myself. I might get that inside of this Hoola one despite that people are raving bout this

Shopping is very addicting. Good luck on your goal! It's great to save money.

Ah designer brand jeans look so nice but the price is too much. I love underwear too, can't ever have too much.
