October haul

Hi lovelies,

So after a month without spending, I have promised a bigger haul like and there is it. Coupon days were between the 9th to 13th October like every half year, so here what I have purchased:

Drugstore is not that interesting, so I am just going to attach the photo here and write so thoughts below.

B65C97A3-1249-428F-B53F-C75DE511739C

In a kind of way I have failed to do my zero waste journey. I still bought shower gels, which I wanted to skip and also regarding the cruelty free journey I have purchased some maybe file, like the Nature Box which is owned by Henkel so I was not enough careful. In terms of my period I just can not have the reusable pads or diva cups in use, maybe later I am going to change my mind. My tooth care is the same: I don’t know how the natural toothpastes can guarantee my tooth health and also if there is a Curaprox dupe in a super soft bamboo brush or not.  All the others are CF stuffs exept the blench.

clothes:

I have a wishlist which I am strictly keeping: so this month my leather biker jacket is the piece to invest in. I have ordered it only from Mango- I know it is fast fashion, but the material is great and decent and it is still a lot for me. Also I was so happy to see that they shipped it on bike from their Budapest warehouse and packed in paper instead of plastics.

 

Other basic is a leggings from H&M which I have purchased upon returning a lot of clothes which I can not use, neither sell nor giveaway or recycle. Please note that it is my one and only leggings now. I also wanted to by some socks but finally I just choose this one with the cute sausage dogs on it.

And the followings: the basic turtle neck black, the hair buckle (was the half as at Zara), the cashmere hair strap and the loose fitting dress- it is so cute, but a way too big so rather will wear it later- hope soon.

From Cultbeauty I have ordered two Charlotte Tilbury products: her new foundation and a limited edition Hot lips 2 lipstick.

From the Airbrush Flawless Foundation I have choosen shade 3 cool, which is my perfect skin shade. After 2 use, I would say it is a really great middle coverage foundation, for events and go outs just perfect for me. ( I know a lot of you would use it on daily basis, but I rather stay sheer normally) Hot lips 2 I have ordered Carina’s star which is a peachy pink in this beautiful refillable packaging.

Calzedonia:

I wanted to purchase two stockings from them, but ended up 3 of them due to the shop assistant fail, no worries I am in them nearly all the time. So they are the shaping type ones because much more better qualit and  long lasting, which I am diffenetely go for.

Others: 2 books and a pair of Levi’s Jeans to my Hubby.

The flat

In October we are having a bit bigger investment: our Glass wall in the flat, which will be ready hopefully next month and finally creating our real living room and a separate bedroom. Despite of that I have purchased a letter board, which my husband has already hate, but we do not have anything of our walls, and that one I just want to instal some photo shelf or ledge, which I might need to do DIY for the perfect fit.

I hope you have enjoyed this haul and keep waiting for the November one – it is also going to be a bigger one for sure;).

 

Xoxo,

 

 

 

 

 

July hauls

Hi lovelies,

I have not written for a long time due to our future flat, read the story My announcement and keep waiting for my updates soon.

So July passed by a lots of work and only 4 days of from the reality of Budapest. I have already posted about my bikinis so read it Here.


Beside my bikini purchase I have been at The Body Shop to purchase some gifts for my sister and bbf’s- I have forgotten to take the pictures on these, for myself I have finally bought the Body Yoghurt, for a lighter summer version instead of the Body Butter. I have chosen the one with Almond Milk, as Generally hating the Body lotions with so strong perfume (smell). I tend to say love it: cooling, lightweight, so might will purchase the British Rose one as well. I just took two mini mask, but only tried the honey mask after the neem mask, to minimize the dry out of the dry parts of my face. It is not bad, but not the one which I would purchase in the full version, which is really pricy.

All the other are from Mueller, which a drogerie and perfumery in Hungary. It is a really huge store from cheap to high-end cosmetics. I rarely go there as they are a big expensive, and too many people have the access to the more expensive products, which they often open and use instead of the testers…. but it is the place for Real Techniques. They did not have the sponge and the brush, but the brush cleaner yes. Here is it more expensive than MAC ahh… more like a liquid soap type, so might need a bit less, cleans effectively, but come on it is RT only.

And guess what Shiseido was on 50% sale, so that was the deal to must not skip ;). unthought it was really hard to find something due to the above mentioned problem. So I have purchased the Perfect Foundation Brush: love its size and the small kabuki shape so easy to apply all type of foundations. Full Lash Mascara in brown- I always have a brown mascara for natural makeup days. It is not a bad mascara, but differently do not worst the price, on this L’Oréal price tag is was ok to buy. Biobonza was a sample;).

What were your July purchases?

Xoxo,

P.S.: Hungarians are adore the creamy cold fruit soups, which you can do easily: cook the fruits (apricot, plum, peach or mixed) a bit with cinnamon and clove then take it to a turmix with vanillin aroma or sugar, but back to the hot plate and mix it with some milk (I always use almond/soy or rice) and leave it is the fridge. For strawberry use mint only at the first step. Instead of milk you can serve it with ice cream.

2018 April hauls

Hi lovelies,

We are having a coupon days here in Hungary, so I just would like to show you my purchases. Yes, I spent a lot, and I have not purchase a lot of things for months…warning before you start a crazy spending read my Clear out tips.

Beauty, health and skincare:

img_4302

Usually I am the person who buy economy packs on a lower price at drugstores like Nivea Micellar Wipes for travel, Tampa, Libresse, Always and Listerine will be enough for the next half-year. I wanted to try out Botanical conditioner, but bought two oldies, Fa have new smells, while Dove with cucumber was so fresh. I did buy some deodorants, toothpaste and shower gels to my husband.

Honestly I wanted some Catrice products, but they were sold out on the very first day’s morning (wow How?) …. so I have repurchased two things, which are great but not cruelty free this Maybelline concealer and L’Oréal Lash Paradise (I know that Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is a cruelty free alternative, but it is pretty hard to get in Hungary) both was on -50%. Real Techniques finally arrived to Müller, it is a bit more expensive than at iHerb, but still affordable, specially with 20 % off. Last thing was Chanel Powder, you might know that I have made a big clear out and nearly all of my powders were old and outdated, so I have purchased with giant in the promotion, I hope I will love it…

Cruelty free finally, I went i to The Body Shop to repurchase my favourite Vitamin E cream, they do have a new formula for normal/combination Skin so I am going to give a try. Of course I could not leave without the cult Shea Body butter, which is our other fav with my husband. Drops of Youth cream has a bigger packaging in a jar, as so many friends recommended and Vitamin E Eye cream was out of stock, I picked this one. Other free will be just samples, all of them are chosen by me, the serum was free, while two Masks for 300 HUF (1 EUR) due to the loyalty card. I did have 20% off by the coupon. Pupa (Italian make up and Skin care brand-might be cruelty free) launched their mask line, so this is a Bamboo Charcoal deep cleaning peel off mask and 2 packages of eye patches.

Let’s go back to training, so at Biotech USA: Hungarian and former American nutrition brand – I have bought some shakes from the women line, repurchased L-Carnitine, which I love to use before running, feels like to able to run more. And Spirulina food supplement: alga based bacteria, which helps to get a bit more well-balanced. Links:here

Clothes

I tried to follow my Spring wardrobe wishes and skip purchasing items, which are Already in my wardrobe. Most of the places Galmour coupons give 20 % off from new collections.

There are some gifts for my husband from his favourites: polo T-shirts fromHeavy Tools (shopshop), short from Springfield ( shop)and a Levi’s (shop)511 summer edition trousers. (All 20 % off)

Intimissimi is my number 1 underwear brand: sexy, quality lace and comfort. I wanted to have a flowered bra, actually not this, but is was much better and my hubby picked this body in their  catalogue – it was expensive but it is relatively rare that he point on something for me… so soft and comfy.

Calzedonia is the brand which i am only purchasing on sales, they are so expensive…IMG_4308

Mango‘s white blazer goes to my basics, really versatile for formal events with trousers, dresses. I really love in love with this soft knitted top’s browny-golden color. top blazer

Finally I have found my culottes: H&M white-blue stripped, fits really to my new white blazer and blocked hills.

Lastly, Promod was not on the promotion of the magazine, but they did have a promotion for “Ma Carte” holders on 2 items. Honestly I wanted to buy one of their flower dress, but it was not worked on me, so I choose these two: raspberry and green color dresses. Buying a good dress was pretty hard this season as most of them are super mini or under the knee length dresses in the stores, neither of them ideal for my lifestyle on bike. green   silky

I hope you have enjoyed my haul. More hauls from me: The bronzer issue with some haulWhat we bought in Thailand , Asos haul and Anastasia Beverly Hills Haul.
