KMart Shopping Haul

So.. I rarely shop from Kmart but I heard a little birdie whisper that they sell affordable clothes..  and it was extremely affordable when I was looking around the clearance aisle.  I’ve been looking for a few light jumpers lately and a new cardigan to replace my old one (which now has a hole from being used too often).

Well, let’s get started.. with the “big” ticket items..

Black Cardigan
Black Cardigan 100% cotton – AUD$6
Peach Striped Scarf 100% cotton - AUD$7

So, unfortunately, some of my items like my Maybelline Color Vivids were not sealed.  What does this mean?  They were used in the store by probably someone who just wanted to get some free lippy on their lips without purchasing.  I might be wrong but why would they use a brand new lippy?  It’s a loss for the company if the product is ruined and it makes the consumer upset when they found out they bought a used item!!  Yes, it does make me kinda upset because someone was being selfish.  Here’s a close-up pics of some of my products which were used…

Hey there cosmetic companies, if you’re reading this, it would be great if could seal the products so it makes it difficult for others to “help themselves”.  If you are buying, remember to ensure that the unsealed item is not used!

Well, there you go!  All the stuff I bought.  Reviews and looks will be coming soon!

Shopping Haul: My HairCare by Mazen Bali

Hello!

Well, here I go again.. shopping.  Yes, I have a shopping addiction.  There is always something I want to buy, regardless of whether I need it or not.  So, what’s on my recent wishlist?  A hair curling tool from, of course, a hair shop.

I’m a believer in getting the best price and so, I scouted the internet looking for the best price.  Ahhh, the wonders of the internet.  I actually found the best price from a Hairdresser’s shop but I came across a website and really liked it.  It’s called My HairCare.  I took a chance and sent them an enquiry asking if they price matched.  Lo and behold, they did!!  They answered my query really quickly and professionally as well.

Here’s what attracted me to the website:

  • You earn points when you buy (although not much)
  • If you post up a picture review, you get a discount off your next purchase
  • Great customer service (of course, I only found this out after sending them a query or 2)
  • The website was easy to navigate
  • Free shipping(!!!) if you purchase over $50, plus at the time of my purchase, it was a free upgrade to express post
  • You do not lose your “basket” after a short period of time
  • They accept Paypal (my favourite way of making payment)

Currently on the website, there is a promotion going.  You get an upgrade to express shipping.  For those of you who are impatient like me.  This is great!  I made my order on Monday night and got my purchases on Wednesday morning.  Yay!  One thing I would say though, was that I felt that my purchases were not packed as well as I would like. It was wrapped in two sheets of paper, instead of bubble wrap.  There was “Fragile” written on the box but I’m still slightly paranoid (I have tendencies to be quite paranoid with my stuff)

Picture time!

Conclusion:

I would definitely repurchase from this shop in future.  The customer service is great and the concept of the store is fantastic (definitely one of a kind in Australia).  If only they stocked more products.

Have you found a shop that you really liked?

Stay Beautiful!!
