Just another manic haul day
Wish it were a ban day
Coz my cards are cryin
Just another manic haul day!

     I have been singing these lines all evening šŸ˜› Just stuck in my head since I spoke to my friends about doing a post for my haul. I ventured out for some work and as usual ended up buying a couple of things. How do you stop yourself from getting something especially when there is sale all around?!? 

     Well somethings were planned…hmm ok I had planned to go to 2 stores only – one to peek and one to buy. Make that 3 – 2 to peek in and 1 to buy. I wanted to see if the Dior summer collection finally made out here (peek), whether the MAC Temperature Rising was launched (peek) and since I heard Promod was on sale I wanted to pick these really light jackets (hmm not sure if it the correct term from them as they were made of thin material…more of a cover up I guess) available in different colors that they had in their collection (buy). 
     Dior collection is still not here (boo!) neither was Temperature Rising (double boo!!) but the had the Extra Dimensions collection and I picked a blush in the shade Blazing Haute along with lippy in Crosswires. My main objective was to book some pieces from the upcoming collection before they ran out of it. I then mosey-overed to Promod where they had run out of the jackets that I wanted but I found this one in beige leatherlite material.

     I remember seeing something similar during their winter stock but at that time it was priced much higher so I didn’t end up picking it. This one has a tag price of Rs. 3650/- but I paid Rs. 2950/- for it on discount. I really like how it feels all soft and smooth. Nice and versatile piece. Didnt feel warm on so I have to wait and see how it fares during the winter months (Winter is coming…). A got a pretty cuff from there which was not on sale but I really liked the design and combo. More on it on the Tuesday Trendy Trinket feature on the FB page šŸ™‚

     Next I popped into Mango as I spied a nice maxi dress hanging in a rack. On closer inspection it was too printy and night gown like looking. I picked up this black and white vertical strip shirt which I will wear as a cover up. It feels silky satiny to touch and is quite light to wear. Priced at Rs. 2790/- I paid Rs. 2490/- for it. Next I got this beautiful knitted top. Looks like woolen material but it is not and is suitable to wear in present climate. Has a beige base color with flecks of black, brown and metallic gold in it. I don’t know the original price for it as it does not have a tag but I paid Rs. 2390/- for it. Next I spotted these chunky arm candies and the colors were all so lovely and appealing that I picked a whole bunch of them on discounted prices. I even got this thin black strap like thing with diamante which can be worn as a double wrap bracelet. Again you will get more info on these on the Tuesday feature.

     I then spotted the Clinique counter and saw that they had gotten the newly launched nail paints (Rs. 1100/-). I really really wanted to get their Black Honey iconic shade as the famous lipstick version of it is not available in India and it gets sold out in their International stores. I spotted these really cute kits from them which has been newly launched. They are about 5 of them each featuring an iconic skincare product from them. These kits are priced at the value of the featured product but you will get 3 products in them along with a cute toiletry bag. They have one ie a 6th one featuring one of their perfume. Great idea for giving gifts! Browsing their setup I decided to pick up the Take Day Off Balm (Rs. 2000/-) which Ankita from Corallista spoke off highly. And I got a eyeshadow brush (Rs. 1350/-) something that I was not aware that Clinique had. I love the packing of it and will keep it aside.

     Phew! That was some day. Oh but that was not all šŸ˜› I got 2 of my packages in the mail! One was the Real Techniques Stippling Brush from Feelunique and the other was a package from Rooja. My mom was scandalized when she saw these and was like “what all weird things do you keep buying of the internet!?!” LOL! I have been eyeing these for a long time and could not resist this time. They are travel bags to store your intimates in. One is shaped like a B and the other is shaped like an underwear. I bought matching designs for it….are they not adorable šŸ™‚ The are from a US company called Brag and this design is called Tiffany. I got the large size for the B as 1) it is meant for bigger cup sizes and 2) the other one looked very small and would only carry 3-4 but this one can carry more number of pieces. It is stiff to touch and feels a little heavy so I’m not sure how ideal it would be for travel. 

     The other one has two compartments where you can store fresh and used clothes separately. That is right size and soft to touch thus making is convenient to carry along. The front and back part of the designs has small pockets thereby giving you additional storage spaces. Under normal circumstances I would be too shy to show these to you like this but given how cute they are I just had to share em :). And that wraps up my haul for this time. Seriously need to hide my cards away!!! But I know I will not be able to survive a shopping ban….makes me very fidgety šŸ˜› Thank God for the off hours I keep and the rising dollar rate. Small mercies…..Well I will see you soon. Buh bye!
