Mall Haul & Contest Reminder

I went to my favorite mall this weekend for the first time in over a year. And the consequence of doing so was this trip being my biggest shopping spree in months. Though, I must admit it felt extremely good to get in some tried and true retail therapy! ;)

^My bags full of goodies.

^My Holt Renfrew purchases. Holt Renfrew is a Canadian chain similar to Nordstrom, Macy's, etc. These are all my first ventures into these brands (aside from my Chanel perfume I got a few months ago). Chanel eyelash curler, Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy, Chanel nail polish in Paradoxal, Deborah Lippman nail polish in Lady Sings the Blues, and Butter London in Big Smoke. Swatches and more pictures are to follow on all of these!

^Bobble water bottle. It has a built-in filter and is good for up to 300 bottles full before it needs to be replaced. You can buy replacement filters for $6.99. I'm already in love with it. I found mine at Indigo Books and Music, Canada's equivalent to Barnes and Noble.

^Also at Indigo, I picked up a few books and a magazine. People Style Watch magazine, Domino: The Book of Decorating (amazing so far!), Style A to Zoe, and Gossip Girl Psycho Killer. I can't wait to read Psycho Killer, because it sounds hilarious and perfect for Halloween.

^At Kiehl's, I picked up my second bottle of Tea Tree Oil shampoo. My dermatologist recommended it to me and it's a great clarifying shampoo to use once a week.

^I printed out the 25% off coupon and figured I'd use it if I saw something I liked. I should have known I would! I picked up some purple plaid PJ bottoms which are very soft and warm. The gray sweater was love at first sight! It has stripes of sequins across the front with 3/4 sleeves and it is extremely soft.

^At HMV, I had to catch up on my Glee CDs. And as obsessed as I am with Lady Gaga, I never actually got a physical copy of her newest album. But the best part? The Snoopy DVD. I needed it for my Charlie Brown collection of DVDs. I don't care how old I get, the Charlie Brown gang has permanent residence in my heart. :)

^At Sephora, they've finally started carrying some bigger brands that were originally not available in the Canadian stores. I only picked up one item- YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in #1 (Nude Beige). Why only one thing? The MA promised me that the Canadian Friends and Family Sale is coming up in the next few weeks. I'm holding out! I'll be posting pictures and a swatch soon!

^This "evil eye" bracelet isn't from my shopping spree, but I just got it in the mail. I ordered it from Beyond the Rack. I thought I'd include it in this post. BTR is a Canadian version of Haute Look and Rue La La. I received a $15 off coupon in the mail and had a $10 credit, so I got this bracelet and some glass canisters for my kitchen for only $10 including shipping! Score! You can click on my invitation link or just go to the regular site address and sign up.

It was a successful shopping trip! If you have questions about anything, let me know in the comments or message me. :) Also, don't forget my contest is still open for one more week!
