Having a job = weekly income = cash to shop = shopping spree.
One of my most favourite online site to shop on is Brandsexclusive and sometimes you can pick up really nice bargains and really pretty clothes!
One of my first purchases were just some basics that I really needed (white singlets).
Then it was some winter, knitted wear (jumper and 2 tops).
Then it was some more tops (long sleeve fancy purple top and thin cardigan)
Then it was another cardigan and strapless top.
Then a nice over the shoulder brown coat.
Then I had to stop myself from purchasing anymore items from the site! I had to stop because each sale purchase = 1 box + standard shipping fee and ever since then I had not made any new purchases.
Another favourite store that I love going to is MINK.
I love mink so much because
1. it's in my area
98% of the time only buy the clothes that are on sale and here are my 2 most recent purchase: a jumper and cotton top, there could have been another one on the list as today I saw this gorgeous green dress but no size :(
On the last week of uni, I went with a friend to Macquarie Shopping Centre and ended up spending again! But, they were all on sale .... and this is what I bought:
This really really pretty strapless dress for only $19
Jeanswest knitted top - 30% off already reduced price
Colette rings - 50% off as she was a member, I love flowers.
During my outings with my girls and family, movies at westfields. I also bought a few things and here is all of my recent westfields purchases (on two different occasions)
This unique beautiful ring at Lovisa. It's a PEACOCK!!
This beautiful pink/red top at Forever New 40% off on already reduced price and also my mum bought me this polka dot dress at Forever New as well and I LOVE IT. (My photos don't do them any justice!!)
Red blazer at Dotti $30, great bargain :D
Today (11th of April), my sister and I went to do some shopping in our area and I bought:
- Tall Uggs in Chestnut at Rivers for $30
- Cotton On: top $5, belt $2 and flats $15
- Big W: stockings $4, paw paw $5
And also this was dress was purchased at Trade Secret for only $10, strapless with belt.
This pretty much sums up most of my shopping and I really really need to shop buying things. I haven't even blog about my non fashion related purchases (sigh).
Past 3 months...
The last time I blog was almost 3 months ago :O and during that time sooo many things had happened. Where do I start with my recounting? Sigh, if it wasn't for my laziness then this wouldn't had happen.
Well to start off, I changed my blog layout! It's an old one that has been previously used by my old blog but Lee Joon is just so sexy so I decided to use it again.
A big change that impacted on my life is I got a JOB. So one day in February, I decided to search for jobs again in the local newspaper as I had given up after being constantly rejected. There I saw an ad for the position of a receptionist at a real estate. Giving it a go and submitting my resume, I was called in for an interview and was supperr excited because I was finally given the opportunity to be hired.
A few days before the interview, went Target shopping and bought some pants (because I do not own any work pants) and prepared my outfit for the interview. The day came and I stepped into the office, was really nervous and tried to calm myself down. The door opened and my interviewer invited me in... it was a woman.
In my head, I was hoping that she is nice and not intimidating at all. I sat down on the chair and we TALKED. It was the most carefree interview ever, with no interview questions! We just converse with each other and in the end she really liked me and HIRED ME!!! YAY :D
What did happen was that I forgot to bring my resume, but she was really nice about it and told me to email it to her again and then she thought I could do part time. Unfortunately, because of uni commitments it's impossible to do that and I could only do casual. Thankgod she re-assured me that she will be happy to give me just 1 day and that she will still hire me.
O-week of Uni came and I received a call from my manager. She called me in to work and ever since then I am working for them.
I love work.
- It is great to work 1 day a week during uni and more days if needed during holidays. It's sooo flexible!
- I get to work in an office and have the hands-on experience, something that I always wanted
- I get to work while sitting and sipping on tea and having air-con so I never experience the heat of reality
- My co-workers are friendly and easy going (most of them)
- My boss and all of the real estate agents are great people to work with and I learn so much from them
- And the main thing is that I'm earning money while learning so much each day on how to work in a fast pace business and handle pressure
Overall, work is great. It's one of the best things that happened in my life and I am very lucky to get this job. However, it also turned me into more of a shopaholic but I am trying my best to manage that.
And that shopping craze will be shown in my next post.
