Saturday/Sunday Steals #12

I'm so excited to show you guys what I got from the markets in the last two weekends. I somehow always lag my post till about a week after! But seriously, blogging seems much more fun at night... Usually the same concept applies for games (the Sims 3! Yay!).

Okay so... I had no idea why last week's markets had so much "arty-stuff" such as paints and canvases. I bought a total of 8 painting canvases for 50 cents each with a free one ^-^!

These canvases are cost $2 to $4 at bargain stores, so they're actually not that pricey.. but hey! It's never a bad thing to get them for even cheaper. ;)

I also bought some 'bargain-store' acrylic paint in red and blue from the same seller, a bottle of [creamy white] craft paint and a tube of neon yellow craft paint -- all for $1 each.

For your information, I'm not much of an artist and I hate theoretical art. But I love abstract painting [because it doesn't need to make sense]! I used to paint in highschool for my Higher School Certificate project and I do have them pinned on my wall now :)

Besides the crafty stuff, I did also thrifted these two jackets!

This one [below] is by Bardot, I have no idea how old it is, but I think it's really cute! The bottom part there can be unzipped off turning it into a cropped coat/jacket! However, I think the arms a little too flared though... Oh wells! $4.

Also this skeletal print hoodie! It's a Size M, so it's a tad too big for me... but I love oversized hoodies! Considering that I wear tights all the time :$

Now.. more nail polishes! They were just so cheap and I couldn't resist :P

Chi Chi polishes (Shopaholic, Cat Fight) and B Collection polishes (Vancouver, Cologne)

Revlon nail polish 'Teak Rose', 'Geenie In A Bottle' by Glam Nails Manicare
Rimmel's 60 Seconds 'Portobello Pink'

The nail polishes above AND these two items before, I got altogether for $15! Cheap right?

A Max Factor lipstick in Bewitching Coral and a Revlon Colorstay eyeliner (crayon)

This Lancome quad which I believe, only comes with gift packs! I've always loved collecting these because of their handy packaging and decent pigmentation.

More thrifted polishes! Ulta3 in 'Lolly Pop Lilac' and 'Envy'. I LOVE frosty/foily nail polishes! I think it is amazingly pretty, but unfortunately, my local pharmacy doesn't stock these pretty frosty/foily picks :'(

And bangles! :S

Last but not least, I did come across this lady selling Clinque and Natio skincare and a few make-up products. There were toners, moisturizers, eye creams, lip balms and a whole other lot! I wasn't too interested, simply because the products she had doesn't suit my skin-type and conditions.. But then I saw that she had the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel for $7!

I decided to round the sum up to $10 so I also purchased the eye cream she had by Natio :)
I'm actually in need of an eye cream for my dark circles so yay!!!!

Overall, I'm super happy with what I've purchased, considering that it's sooooooo cheap! I spent around $40 for all these stuff! I love markets!

Have you guys hauled or thrifted anything lately?

  4. Wow, where are these markets you're going to?? That's a fantastic price for all of those items, nice work!

    First time reader, and I adore your paintings! Can't wait to see what you come up with to use the new paints and canvases - lately all I've seen are Jen Ramos (Cocoa&Hearts) all over the net and I probably should just pick up a brush myself and attempt the stripes before paying for the end result from someone else.

    Great blog! :)
