I've put a lot of items in my cart and then removed some, went back in for a second order 10 minutes later, not very proud of that, oops! 
Didn't really need anything, but I like picking up things 50% off that I wouldn't normally buy otherwise, can find some hidden gems this way sometimes. :)
Both orders have already been shipped, I hope my orders were packed by 2 different packers, so I wouldn't be cursed, lol! :D

I took the chance to pick up a half price diptyque candle because I've always wondered if they're '$100+ good' or just overpriced. Also a brow pencil, mascara, eyeshadow stick, eyeliner and a lip liner I'll use as an eyeliner most probably. 

mines not been sent, I've just had the processing email.

Oh lucky you, I wanted to try a diptique candle, but I was fluffing around too long and went out of stock before I could pay, however I got the diptique lip balm, so at least I can try something from the brand! :)
Would like to see pics of goodies on the photo wall when orders arrive, pretty please, love seeing everyone's hauls! :)

Nothing I wanted or needed either. Just as well as I got a $150 ticket for not stopping at a stop sign for long enough on the way home.

NZTAs fines are overly harsh. 

The Mecca sale is very tempting, may check a cart out yet.

He didn't say but said my tyres didn't come to a complete stop. Thinking about it, I don't even know how he saw my tyres in the dark, in pouring rain. He was obviously just out to ping people as I saw him stop someone five minutes earlier, as I was turning into that road. No point arguing with the police though

my first parcel has arrived.... 

so far i'm not convinced the Diptyque candle is worth the $100+ usual price tag, but we'll see.

Everything else is great, will pop a pic up when the other one arrives.

Omg! My order arrived today! 2 days it took, super happy. My Birthday gift was an eye mask and a face mask. I will use them on sunday. I ordered an Urban Decay liquid aura illuminating mix-in . It is like a highlighter. I also got a Too Faces Chocolate Brow-nie. Excited to try them both.

Thank you for the birthBirthday wishes xxx

Yeah I've got Nakid 2, Nakid 3 and Born to Run. All are great especially born to run, and heard great things about Nakid honey but the Nakid ultraviolet hasn't had the best reviews. I love purples so was pretty keen. Kinda considering the HB Mercury Retrograde instead but it's pretty expensive so I'll hold off for a decent sale

I have an ancient ShadowBox I should probably throw away, and the LE Kaleidoscope Dreams one which I got super cheap in Hawaii.

my fave palette I own is def the KVD Metal Matte though. 

born to run is super pretty but I won't need a new palette for quite some time yet

I grabbed a nars lipgloss that was also half price, but for some reason not under the sale tab, found it while looking through brands and was just sitting there in the nars tab, half price babydoll lipgloss.
Must have been a mistake.
You can bet I went through some brands if there might be more, lol! :D

So.....I've put Babydoll and the Peversion set in my cart. But I'm pretty sure I already have an identical gloss and I definitely have a couple of unopened mascaras in my stash.
