The Body Shop - Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream

This is the first night cream I have purchased. I didn't really know what to look for, and my friend suggested this for me. When I received my sample and tried it for the first time, I was in love.

Tony Moly Cat Chu Wink Lipstick

I have been waiting for this lipstick to come in the mail since I ordered it in the beginning of July! I have a cat and I of course love them, so when I saw this lipstick, I knew I had to get it!

For those of you unfamiliar with Tony Moly, it is a Korean cosmetics brand. This is only one of their lines, so not all of their products are cat themed. They do have a few lip stain sticks that are bunny themed. I may buy one of those in the future.

I chose #4 in Coral Pop and I purchased this through ebay for less than $9, free shipping included.

Great colour pay off
Can build up colour intensity
Smooth application
Glossy finish
Incredibly cute packaging
Nice fruity scent

If you have dry lips, will emphasize them more
Package can bee a little tricky to use. It can lock when you turn the product back into the tube. Have to keep turning to get lipstick to come out

Have you ever made purchases purely based on packaging?

Cookie Monster Tank

My most recent trip to Toronto, I stopped by Forever21. There wasn't much that sparked my interest, but I do like graphic shirts. 

It's a little too loose for me, but nothing a bit of layering can't fix. I have found that Forever21 tends to run a little big, and their graphic shirts never come in extra small. But it's cookie monster, how can I resist? 'Me want cookie!' (He said something like that, right?)
Besides, Cookie Monster and I have something in common. An undying love/addiction to cookies. I especially love Oatmeal.

The shirt itself is extremely light, and has a washed out sort of style. Makes it seem rather vintage, which is pretty neat. I would love this shirt so much more though if it were a size smaller. Such is life. 

I purchased this shirt for $17.80 CAD.

What was your latest purchase?

L'occitane haul

As I've recently got into skincare, I splurged on L'Occitane items, which I have been excited to try. Detailed descriptions and reviews will follow. Back in June, I used a coupon from a previous haul. Free cleanser or toner with the purchase of a moisturizer.

Of course free shipping was only included for $60 or more, so I bought a few more things.

I purchased:
Angelic Hydration Cream
Immortelle Precious Cleansing Foam
Almond Delicious Soap
Bonne Mere Honey Soap
Magic Key - Press Tub

Have you used L'Occitane products before? Any favourites? Or products you want to try?

Hello and welcome to my blog. As my blog title says, I post about serendipities.
I've recently got into skincare, thanks to my friend Sylvia.
This summer in particular I started somewhat of a skin routine. Specifically for the night. My morning routine is still a work in progress. But baby steps, right?

Follow me on instagram and twitter. I will likely post on those two a little more frequently.
