Up Close & Personal
Yes! I went on a rest and relax holiday to Melbourne, Australia. 6 months into the pregnancy, I figured a holiday is very much-needed before the real job of a momma kicks in. I’ve lived and worked there in the past so it feels like a second home to me. All I did was eat (to satisfy the cravings for food not available in KL, Malaysia), shop and met up with friends. The weather is awesome despite the rain and wind. I just love winter!
Anyway, on to the haul! I’ve just realized that the last cosmetics haul I posted was on 23rd March 2013; approx 5 months ago. That’s way too long in the blogosphere. But really, I’ve not seen anything new worth trying. Even with this haul from Melbourne, I barely bought anything.
- Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara – AUD$10.00 (*RM29.70)
- Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal, “005 Nude” – AUD$8.00 (*RM23.76)

What a creative product name!

There were a lot of cosmetics to see in the drugstore, however after conversion most products were expensive for drugstore brands. Even the high-end brands in stores like Myers and David Jones are expensive. So, that sums up my haul from Melbourne. Till then, Toodles!
