XOXO

Contrary to popular believe that Ms.Fashion will go shopping on merdeka holiday.....
It is not true!! Well, partly....
I've actually learnt my lesson couple of years back when I had a lunch appointment set with my galfriends in Midvalley since it was a public holiday and we thought it was a good time to catch-up on each other. Welpp....BAD BAD decision. Midvalley was like super duper jam packed......
We were caught in the jam OUTSIDE the surrounding aread of midvalley for 1 hour!! and that we were not even attempting to get in....we were attempting to get out of that place!!

Sooo....ever since then, shopping on Merdeka day is a NONO.

As such, Ms.Fashion decided to be a good wife/daughter-in-law/sis-in-law (watever outlaws)...
and to cook lunch. Since i stay about 2 minutes away from 1 of the shopping centre, i quickly dash over to buy my chicken and koeyteow and potatoes wat not for making koeyteow soup early in the morning. Even then the crowd was enourmous!!!! Frightening sight was that the trolley bay was even empty!! first time ever ive seen such a scenario for such a huge store. And queing up to pay, needless to say was approximately half-an-hour long....

Since I was ALREADY in the shopping centre, I dropped by to buy myself the Freshlook contact lenses as recommended by IreneK & Skay. Buy 2 Free 1!! :> What a bargain.
I realized that FreshLook have a more natural color at that the color is really soft while FreshKon have a more bright and strong bold colors. So if you want a more natural look you should go for FreshLook but if you like to dramatise your eyes perhaps for party or something you can go for FreshKon. I got 3 colors, Gray, Hazel and Green. Actually was really dying to try a Blue but ....out of stock....chey.... Next time la.

















Then.....i got distracted..... and ended up with something else....















XOXO!! First time i bought something from XOXO. Normally the price is too exhorbant that I'm so reluctant to whip out my credit card. But today I was sucked in and bought a "3 item for RM100" promotion, which was pretty good because if go by the normal price it would be about RM300 something. And don't you just love the paperbag!! I love anything with hearts!! :>
The handbag was really beautiful too but I really held myself back.....maybe next time.

OK.....time to do the role of goody wifey and cook dinner, already had some chicken seasoned with tumeric&curry....gonna go bake it now. Argh....i hate tumeric ...my nails are all yellow now.. boohoo!!!!

Angie said...

how much are the contact lenses??

Fashionasia said...

AM: haha...actually NOT suppose to shop but end up shop a little also la... :P watodo...with all the sales in-your-face and all...

naddy:aussino very expensive la!! and they sell everything seperately wan...i got quite a few of aussino's for my wedding so enough to last me lah :>

littleblackbook: hmmm....colored lenses are usually not so comfortable actually compared to clear lenses because sometimes when the lenses go out of position, you will see things blurry bcos of the patterns on the lense. Freshlook is quite comfy i shall say as the apature opening(the clear space) is quite large.

Jemima: so u stayed home n enjoy a good rest i suppose ?

angie: most shops selling RM70 per box. Buy 2 free 1. But i bargained and got it for RM65/box.

Jemima said...

Yes, Fashionasia. I had a blissful rest at home. Thanks! :D

mind showing wat u bought in xoxo?

n said...

ermmmm depends on which aussino collection u're talking abt coz they have those expensive ones and those reasonable (and something in between as well)... i like quilt instead of comforters, coz with quilt can change/wash the quilt covers :)

Fashionasia said...

jemima: ah...wonderful! nothing beats a restful holiday ya!

anonymous: actually i wouldnt mind, but im reluctant...because i've had enough bashing already...and secondly i wouldnt risk ppl i know to discover me. :>

naddy: same here!! i use to use comforters but now i prefer quilts because i can wash the covers!!
