The GAP sale starts today – are you going?

gap_sale

When you walk in to get just ONE t-shirt, you will inevitably end up buying at least 3 or 5 pieces.  Trust me.  I’ve been there.

Plus, if you’re a GAP member, I think you’ll get additional 10% on top of your purchases.

I’m itching to go, but I just might not this year, because I need to curb my spending.  In addition, my GAP membership just expired last month. :P

Would you want this “Birkin”?

A while ago, I stumbled on pictures of a pretty interesting canvas bag.  Apparently, this bag was getting neverending orders, and stores selling the bags have all sold out.

Recognize it? :)

Yep, it had the unmistakable print of the ever-popular Hermes Birkin printed on it.  Comes in several colors too.

There’s a concern out there as to whether this bag is at all “legal”.  And whether or not Hermes has had its stamp of approval for that bag.

That aside, these bags are selling like hot cakes!  I actually saw it being advertised for sale on Facebook, and out of curiosity I inquired on the price.  It was a whopping RM500! 

Well, definitely cheaper than owning an original Hermes! LOL

Have you seen this bag? Have you been tempted to get one?  Or are you already using one yourself?  Would you succumb to dishing out RM500 for a bag like this?

Kiehl’s Mega Sale Carnival

When I visited the Kiehl’s store at Gurney Plaza some time back, I did ask the SA if they had any sales or promotions, and she told me, “Hardly.”

But lo and behold, I’m here to tell y’all that Kiehl’s in Malaysia is gonna have a Mega Sale Carnival from May 27 – June 26 2011.  They’ll take RM10 off every RM100 purchase. That is roughly 10% discount, depending on how much you actually purchase.  Any savings is better than no savings, yes?

I’m on a skincare ban now too, but if I wasn’t, I’d stock up on the Midnight Recovery Concentrate…a miracle concentrate which I’d rave about some other day. :)

Visit Kiehls’ Malaysia’s Facebook page now.

Mothercare Carnival sounds like fun: wish I could be there!!

My (Belated) Birthday Pressie from Sephora Beauty Insider

When I was staying Stateside for a few months, like many others out there, I too succumbed to the temptation that is called Sephora.  I shopped online because they offered FREE shipping for orders $50 and more (which isn’t hard to attain).  Plus, they gave out free samples with each order.  AND I got to register as a Beauty Insider member.

I didn’t really know what being a Beauty Insider meant, other than receiving points for my purchase, as well as newsletters emailed to me regularly. 

Then last October, as it neared my birthday, I received an email from Sephora Beauty Insider informing me that I could go collect a birthday gift from the Sephora store!  A birthday gift just by being a registered Beauty Insider?!  Cool!

One minor problem though: I was back in Malaysia and I had to ask someone in US to collect the gift on my behalf.

Long story short…my friend only managed to pass my gift (belated birthday gift, that is) to my hubby last week, when he was in the States.  And ta-daaa…here it is!! (psst…they change the gift every now and then)

  • Sephora Nano eyeliner (eye pencil in a very cool shade of Silver Green)
  • Sephora Lash Plumper (lash plumping mascara)

I’ve personally not used any of Sephora’s stuff, so this would be a first.  Hmm…I wonder if I’ll get another gift this coming October… :)

Are any of you guys Beauty Insider members, and what have you gotten for your birthday gifts from Sephora?
