Don't Judge me by my Shopping Habits...

As you all may know from my past post, I kinda have been feeling a tad blue and recurred to that one thing that makes us fashion lovers gloriously happy: shopping.

Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone for your sweet comments, I am feeling somewhat relieved at the moment; maybe because I'm not really thinking about it that much.

Black Friday was a bit glum here, couldn't find loads of sales but some little items were at a good price. I got some Sephora Liquid Eye Liner for $10.00 -but I think that's the normal, everyday price- and very very red lipstick -that I probably won't leave the house with (this was for like $5.00 I think). Oh, and Lula Mag (I'm in love with ALL photoshoots - this wasn't on sale tho).



Up to the third floor of the mall! Got these cute boots at Forever 21 for only $12.50!! My sister pointed at them and I just grabbed a size 6 off the rack (funny thing is, I'm a size 5 haha).
And forgot to tell you all, I wear glasses now...
I've had these for a couple of weeks already, they are a cute DKNY model that kinda makes me look a bit geeky/indie-ish (this according to my friends and students, lol).

Final exams week is coming up and must... cram... for... tests...
However, I'm glad it's almost over; can't wait to unveil what next semester has in store.

What are you shopping for?
PS: Diary of a Young Designer turns 1yr old this Dec. 22! I'm planning on having a giveaway to celebrate so hang around!!

  27. hey sophie, thanks for dropping by ! the sushi indeed was amazing. it's an amazing idea for a girls night in - try it sometime ! sequins are always a personal fave, and I agree. There really is nothing better than retail therapy <3 that was me a few days ago, ha. Love the red lipstick. I was also wondering if you'd like to exchange links with me, I'd love for our visits to be a more regular thing : )
