I've been Choo'd

I'm sure you're all bored of me waffling on about the Jimmy Choo crossover, but hey, when a girl loves her shoes, what's there to do?
So the question is...
Did I wake up early and get in line on the 14 Nov?
YES, well sort of.
Did I come home with goodies?
NO.
Well to cut a long story short I didn't wake up early enough and products were off the rack and in people's bags way earlier than I had predicted. So how did I get my hands on the items below?

Hong Kong's Yahoo auction site.
It's far more lenient compared to EBay and as a first time buyer it's been a rewarding experience, I found the opportunity to "strike it lucky" i.e come across a friendly and helpful seller, bargain the price, save on delivery charges and get my hands on the item within the next day.


So what did I buy?
Gray suede peep toe booties


Black leather shoulder Bag

My eyes had feast upon these since the collection preview, I can't wait to wear them out, but the only downfall is having to re-heel them first due to the delicate leather soles. I'm still apprehensive in parading these, but a walking stick may help.


Did any of you join the queue and pick up anything from the collection??


Whilst I was out shopping over the weekend, I spotted some delectable items that were ever so cute, I had to take a quick snap shot. They were not displayed like so, but naughty me decided to re-organize everything for the camera's sake.

Ice Cream flavoured Lip Balms
Purse those lips- Lip Balm
For those of you who would like to get your hands on these, I've seen them on ASOS.
Click on the blue links for info.


Naughty but nice Lip Gloss Pots

What else did I pick up over the weekend?
Guerlain Ombre Eclat 4 Shades in 480

The texture is silky smooth and absolutely divine.
I'll post swatches up on my next post.

On the subject of shopping, I have found a fantastic shopping partner, in fact a bestie. She has a great sense of humor, somehow is able to read my mind LOL and is such a sweetie that there never seemed to be enough hours in the day to shop with her.

The only catch is, she lives in LaLa land so until I next see her, the only window shopping we can do together is by the internet. Meeting Lisa from Shop N' Chomp was so much fun. Dearest Lisa not only brought with her a fabulous smile but came bearing gifts.

Thank You So So Much Lisa
I Miss you loads!!


To complete this post, I'll leave you with a photo of the latest YSL MOOK (Magazine book).
Has anyone got their hands on one? It comes with a free canvas tote bag, of which I would say is far better quality than some I've received in the past.
