I wasn’t planning on going to this bazaar because I didn’t have anyone to take with me. MB has a company dinner, one of my gal pals is away with her boyfriend and I had lab work scheduled for today. But when I learned that Sol of Digital Traincase will be there with a bunch of Urban Decay Naked Palettes, I just had to go. So, being the shopaholic that I am, I pushed all my labwork to a later schedule and instead went to therapy. Retail, that is.
I was there at 10:30 am. I wanted the palette so bad that I felt like hyperventilating while getting dressed, much like Becky Bloomwood when she saw the Denny & George scarf. Sometimes when I really want something, my adrenaline rushes and I go crazy.
When I got there, the first booth that I looked for was Sol’s. Too bad, she wasn’t set up yet. So I went around and got these:
Assorted dresses from Pirouette
The floral dress needs to be altered. The straps are too long for me. Geez, I’m too small…. This is a tiny dress already. The black one is a vest.
Looked around some more and got these:
I wanted the yellow bag but it was already dirty and stained and the owner said that she didn’t have any more stocks so I got the blue one which is also fab because I have a matching skirt.
Finally, I couldn’t contain it any longer so I went to Sol’s. They weren’t finished yet but I asked if I can already look around. Sol said sure but it was still quite messy. I said no problem and shyly asked for the Naked palette. And then she asked, “gusto mo na?” Hahaha! I’m too obvious! But before that, I got these:
The elf polishes are free! Thank you Sol!
Forgot to include this in the group photo as I already applied this to my fingernails:
And because I’m a sucker for sets and palettes:
The free cuff bracelet is really just an elastic lace that was sewn. I’ve outgrown light and pink nail polish. I now gravitate toward dark/bright/glittery and bold colors.
Of course, my trip wouldn’t be complete without makeup:
Got this ELF Powder Brush which is soooo soft. Review coming.
NYX HD Photogenic Grinding Blush
The NYX Mood Lip Gloss is similar to Smashbox’s O-Glow.
And of course, the piece de resistance:
Can I just say that I’m the very first girl to buy a Naked Palette from the Digital Traincase! I’m one proud shopaholic! Wheeeee!
(Reviews coming for all the makeup)
Because shopping for pasalubong is caring (and I love my mom and sis):
These are for my mom and sis. They both like red and pink polish. Mom also likes golds/bronze and this is the perfect combination.
This bag is for my mom. The shade is actually more of a purple/pinkish shade. Here it looks too ube. Oh, I forgot to mention that the bags can fit a lot of stuff. They’re not too flat and that makes me a happy girl as I tend to bring 1/4 of my room with me whenever I go out.
I also got mom this:
Here’s how it looks:
You twist the cap and it grinds up the blush.
Here’s a swatch:
It’s very pretty. I applied this on her and it looks really natural.
After the bazaar, I went home and dumped my stuff and rushed to get my lab work done. Then I did a little more shopping and ate lunch at Toast Box. I’m really enjoying this eating/shopping alone thing. After that, I went home again and dumped my stuff and my sister and I went to see the dentist. Turns out, I need some surgery done and I need to wear braces because my stupid impacted tooth is pushing my front tooth. Waaaah!!! But that’s a story for another day. Let’s go back to my happy place.
Yeah, the shopping bug bit me the other day but I wasn’t able to buy anything. I was sick for two days (polymyositis strikes back), I just slept and slept but today I was back with a vengeance! This was a very fun day indeed.
Again, special thanks goes out to Sol for making my day. Check out her online store at http://digitaltraincase.multiply.com/. She also has a blog of the same name.
The SuperSale Bazaar is until Sunday at Rockwell. What made your Friday?
