The secret diary of a stingy girl continues...

In the last 2 years I will have moved countries a ridiculous number of times; from Australia to England, England to France, France to Australia... AND in only a few weeks time i'll be packing my bags yet again and leaving Australia to head back to LondonWith all this moving around (not to mention saving like crazy) I have to confess I haven't been shopping in a very long time... I usually do a lot of this...                    

With the another international move looming I let my hair down a little... stingy girl style of course!

Want to see what I spent my pennies on? Of course you do!!




Thank goodness I have a Estee Lauder Corporate Store card otherwise this would have cost a small fortune!

Perched on the counter in a big basket I found this Estee Lauder pack priced at a mere AU$20.00 containing:
Estee Lauder Signature Eyeshadow Quad in Spiced Peach
Estee Lauder Artist's Lip Pencil in 08 Spice Writer
Estee Lauder Pure Colour Long Lasting Lipstick in Berry Swirl

I also snagged (pictured above)

A Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Colour in Pink Buff and a  MAC pigment in Fuchsia for only AU$10.00 each!! bargain!!

And last but not least!

Like every good stingy shopper I check my emails frequently for any specials or offers and I just couldn't go past this email from Strawberrynet offering me a 11% we miss you discount and to my delight jumping on the site at the time they were also offering a further 10% discount off all makeup!

So I snagged the gorgeous Chanel Fly High Makeup Essentials Palette & YSL eyeliner for a mere AU$64.00
 Oh and the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polish in Fuchsia Power was a ridiculous AU$1.40 with a voucher I had at Priceline!

Isn't the Chanel palette pretty?!! 

What are your recent buys? are you as stingy as me?


  1. Arrrgggh so much jealous! All that stuff looks AMAZING!! So so much jealous!

  2. Excellent haul! I am a huge bargain hunter, I always buy eveything on sale unless its something I really need. I have a pass to the EL staff shop too - can't wait to go, planning to do it next month!

  3. Oh good luck with your move. Is it for good or will you come back to Australia?
    Loving the haul! Thanks to you, I have a pass now! Can't wait to go shopping :)
