August Guilty Pleasures

August reflected low sales on my business but very high on expenditures. Talking about shopping for things I don’t need, least for now. Here is the list of my guilty pleasures last month.

On Beauty:

Nars Blush in Orgasm and Matahari- I just have to have these blushes.

Benefit Dr. Feel Good Face Balm- been wanting to have this since last year but it’s not available here in the Phil.

Zebra Print Cosmetic Case-  my make up studio case had a trip to the repair shop for broken legs. I need to buy an alternative for a make up gig.

Maybelline Magnum Volum’ Express Mascara- saw this one at Duty Free Shop, just want to try it.

Aveeno 24 hour Mositurizing Lotion- just what my skin needs.

Duac Ointment  (not in the picture)- for my zits, prescribed by my dermatologist.

Neutrogena Light Night Cream- run out of night cream, I normally switch brand after finishing a container.

On Fashion: Tank Tops and Dangling Earrings from Forever 21, Zara Feather Belt, Flat heel urban thongs from Matthews, Aldo Zebra Print Flats, Forever 21 Antique Ethnic Cuff.

On Lifestyle: Antique Lamp Shade, Black Brocade Curtain that I had custom-made in Kamuning, Hard wood posts, Ostrich Feathers, Cotton fabrics to be used as table runners and covers in zebra print and fuchsia pink.

Nice eh? I really should stop going to malls, supermarkets, thrift shop, etc.

Jessica Stam rocked Aldo

Staying home and nursing a bad flu gave me ample of time to do internet surfing and shopping, this lead me to Aldo’s site. Great news! Their Fall 2010 ad campaign is already up and Jessica Stam starred in it once again.

Jessica looked super cute in this “vintage rocks look” (sitting on top of a jukebox). And don’t forget those fold over cuff booties…a must have this fall.

The campaign was shot by Terry Richardson but more than the photos, I am really entertained by their Fall 2010 video. It’s just sad that I can’t post it here yet but you can log on to aldoshoes.com to watch the video featuring The Seed by Tristan Bechet. Dance, Dance, Dance!
