Attention Online Shoppers!

This may be old news for some but as I am an online shopping addict, I decided that I must blog about this news.

Firstly, ASOS announced a while back that they will be launching an Australian website. This means that returns and exchanges for us Aussies will be more convenient and less expensive, but on the other hand ASOS's competitive prices will be inflated. Not sure when the site will start operating but it will be interesting to see how the prices compare to the UK site. Hopefully the Australian site will allow student discounts like the UK site too!

Following Zara's move in opening stores in Australia, the ever trendy Topshop has finally decided to make the move and establish its first flagship store in Sydney. It will be located on the corner of George Street and Market Street where the massive Supre used to be. Not sure what's going to happen to the Topshop/Topman section in Incu Paddington but I am anticipating the arrival of Topshop's first actual store in Sydney! I reckon it will draw much bigger crowds than Zara and I hear that it will open just in time for the Christmas rush.

So what do you guys think about ASOS & Topshop's establishment in the Australian retail market.

M. #3 Shakuhachi

Went shopping with my sister at Paddington today. Tried on a few shakuhachi pieces and fell in love with the whole Crochet Daisy line! Also picked up the Ponty Chiffon Crop Top in black and a leather pleat skirt that was on sale. We were also lucky enough to meet Jessie White, the designer herself in the boutique... her son was absolutely adorable! The best weather for shopping in Paddo today.

H&M skirt, Michael Kors watch, Jeffrey Campbell shoes & Miu Miu bag

It almost felt like Spring today! I'm looking forward to putting my coats and knits away and bringing out the skirts and shorts. Hoping the warm weather will be here to stay!

My Sephora haul has finally arrived! Ordering from Sephora was such a hassle, had to get a parcel forwarder to ship the order to my house and then I realised that Sephora requires a US credit card and hence had to get the forwarder to purchase the items for me. All in all, it took more than a month for the order to arrive but I suppose it was worth the wait. 
  1. Urban Decay Naked Palette 
  2. Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion in Sin 
  3. NARS Blush in Orgasm
  4. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink 
  5. YSL Volupte Sheer Candy in Dewy Papaya - love the design of the lipstick case
  6. Diorshow Mascara in Black
  7. Dior Addict Lip Glow
The eyeliner and mascara were purchased as backup in case my existing ones run out. I think I've gone through at least 4 of the Bobbi Brown eyeliners now and still loving it!
Can't wait to try everything out, will keep you guys posted!

Currently waiting for this Motel colour block bodysuit to ship from ASOS. Knew i had to get it as soon as i saw it. Will definitely be perfect for Summer when it seems like colour block items are the "it thing" for the season.

Lover Wiccan Mini Dress

Lovelovelove this dress. Fell in love with it after seeing the runway shots from RAFW. The mushroom colour is divine particularly paired with red. Would love it on my body but too bad it'll burn a hole in my credit card :(
