Hello!!! Gosh! i missed everyone... i haven't posted for like ages. I'm still here in LA and i've been so busy going around with my friends and relatives that i barely even have time to comb my hair. hehe!

So i'll do a collective shot of hauls that i've been doing here and there. I'm into some sort of buying frenzy nowadays and the cops should stop me before i find myself  broke and penniless. Yikes!

HAUL # 1

Love this place!

A trip to Vegas wouldn't be complete without dropping by Sephora at The Venetian. As they were busy hitting the slot machines, i sneaked out of Aria hotel (where we stayed) and walked across the street all the way to makeup paradise. hehe! I was in a rush so i only got to spend 20 minutes getting these  loots. I have yet to try these items except for Benefit powder (Petal) and lipstick (My Treat) which i adore and Buxom gloss (Kanani) which is addictively minty. The UD and Lorac eyeshadows i'll try soon. And the pink YSL lipstick (Rose Opera) is still unused. 


I had it stamped with my initials

I decided to buy a new soft travel bag, the Keepall Bandouliere 55 ($1513.40 with tax) as my previous one is already beaten up and old. I chose the one with the strap this time. Many thanks to the uber nice SA Melissa Tanenbaum of Louis Vuitton, Caesars Palace. She is just so sweet and friendly. I would definitely look for her again the next time i go back to the Sin city.

Then i also got this super soft and chic looking white sandals from Soft ($120). And a pair of Jimmy Crystal shades which is affordable ($38). I like the cute row of crystals adorning the frame.


Of course somebody like me couldn't resist getting these NYX products as they are not available in my country. You either have to order them online or ask a pal to get it from me here. I also bought Almay shadow, OPI nail polish and some L'Oreal, Joe Blasco and Rimmel lipsticks.


Cheap but nice looking shoes for less than $20 at DD's Discount

More shoes brought from different malls

I really like the style of this Dooney & Bourke bag -Janine Satchel ($225) so i didn't think twice about purchasing this. The Mossimo Supply Co shoes which can be bought in Target stores are so affordable but stylish. I've been using the clogs frequently coz' it feels good on my feet.


A few MAC stuffs...i got the Speak Louder, Russian Red (i think i also got Russian Red from the Wonderwoman collection...yikes!) and Chatterbox. Paint pot in Soft Ochre. Concealer in NC30 and Studio fix in C30. 


More loots

...and loots

Some drugstore products like Neutrogena, Almay, Maybelline, Aveeno, Covergirl, L'Oreal etc...etc..i love drugstore products as much as i love expensive ones. There's always a thrill in finding a treasure in this heap o' pile!

The last one is not actually a haul...

Salesman said Speck is a great protective case 

Ok, an unfortunate thing happened to me. My old ipod touch (upper left side) accidentally got wet inside my bag. Why? because careless me placed a mineral water inside my purse which wasn't secured tightly while i was playing at the casino. I guess you could already imagine what happened next. It got soaking wet and now it's no longer working...bummer! 

But what sucks the most is the 3,000 plus pictures stored inside which has no backup copies. I just try not to think about it too much. So i bought myself the newer model, the one with built in camera and so far i am loving it, it has longer battery life than the old one i think.

So that's all for now! I don't even want to bother showing my clothes haul hehe!
I'll be going back home (Manila) next week. I'm already wondering how i can fit everything in my luggage ;-o

I would definitely make a review on some of the items here.
Thank you for dropping by and geez i have to go out again now!
I have a slight feeling i'm not yet done with my hauls yet...:-)
