Unboxing: Sample Store Haul


I got a small little box lately from the Sample Store – how it works is that you get to select up to 4 items “free”, just by paying S$5.99 for the postage; so it doesn’t matter if you selected 2 or 4 items, the postage is still S$5.99 per package. I don’t think that they should claim that the items are free though, because postage is definitely cheaper than S$5.99, and the service is actually run by Singapore Post… deduce yourself. But anyway, for the amount of products, I think S$5.99 is more than fair!

Empties: August 2015 – Part 4


And so we have finally made it to the last part of August empties! Given how much I have and how I used to like opening up everything the moment I get them to “try”, to be able to stick with a few items and use them up, it makes me so happy! Let’s not waste any more time and dive right in!

Empties: August 2015 – Part 3


Wow this seems like a never ending series of post – I’m back with Part 3 of August empties! I’ll be done soon, I promise! Part 3 is mainly skincare-centric – used up tons of little sample sizes of skincare. I still have a huge stash, but it is visibly smaller – and somehow I feel a lot lighter, mentally, too.

I feel really happy to see my room with more space, and somehow that has kept me from buying more things these couple of months – every time I see something I want to buy, there’s a little voice now that reminds me that I’m doing so well on de-stashing and I already have something similar!

Empties: August 2015 – Part 2


And we’re back with Part 2! I used up a good number of sample sachets and a few soaps in August – I used to like keeping little sachets to bring on holidays because they’re small and convenient, but these days I prefer bringing products that I’m used to along on trips because then I don’t have to worry about allergic reactions or stressing over breakouts! So I’ve been trying to use up all my sample sachets as fast as I can since I don’t bring them on holidays anymore.

Empties: August 2015 – Part 1


This is the first time – but I just have to do it; this month’s empties will be split into 4 instead of the usual 2, because of the amount of products is so much more than normal, and my backlog at work is so huge so I don’t have the time to sit down and write a post on 20 items at one go. So I’m splitting them into something more manageable basis, and hopefully I can get them all out in a week because I don’t want to be writing about August empties in October either! I know reading empties post after empties post can be quite boring, so please bear with me – I personally love empties posts!
