2013 Trip to Florida

I've been working crazy since November of last year and hence I've been abandoning my blog.  I thought I deserve a week's break from Toronto, so my friends and I flew down to Florida for a 6-day vacation in Orlando and Miami two weeks ago.  We spent majority of the time on the beach and just 2 days of shopping.  I didn't do much shopping.  I expected great deals but I couldn't find much.  We went to the two Orlando Premium Outlets and a store called Ross Dress for Less.  If you haven't heard of Ross Dress for Less, it's just like Marshalls and Winners but with way better and affordable prices.  You'd be able to find brands like Nine West, Michael Kors (bags), Coach, Ralph Lauren, etc.  Any Torontonians planning to shop in the states, I'd recommend this store - look up for a closeby one.

Shiseido & Nars Warehouse Sale - May 2013 Haul

After visiting the Shiseido and NARS warehouse sale more than 3 times, I've come to realize there isn't much I need anymore from this sale.  I've stopped going to this sale on Saturday.  I'd rather come on Sundays when the waiting line is much shorter.

By the time I got to the sale this morning - before 9AM, the warehouse was already letting people in.  I probably waited in line for about 10 - 15 minutes.  I didn't need much so I just pick up some body butters, a NARS multiple, an Orlane anti-fatigue masque, and, Shiseido Benefiance day and night cream for my mom.  I was out of there before 10AM.  It was less than an hour shopping where I spent $163.85 CAD.

Joico Skin Luxe Body Butter in Pink Vanilla - $4 each
I think these are steal deal.  Body butters are The Body Shop are usually at least $10 per jar.  So for $4 per jar, I'd think it's a good deal.  However, if you're looking for super hydrating body butters for dry skin, these are probably not what you're looking for.  I believe these body butters are for normal skin.

  NARS Multiple in Beverly Hills - $15
I love this rosy red colour.  Can't wait to try it out.

Orlane Absolute Skin Recovery Masque - $30
They had an anti-fatigue serum that my mom wanted me to get but they didn't have any at this sale so I resorted to the masque.

Shiseido Benefiance Daytime Protective Cream SPF15 and Revitalizing Cream - $38 each
Shiseido's day and night cream for super dry skin.  Bought it for my mom.  I guess this is her mother day's gift.  =)
