Hola mi amigas & happy Monday!

Last Wednesday I made my bi-annual pilgrimage to Priceline for their famous 40% off skincare sale (aka the only sale I live for) & lemme tell you, it was a little stressful & painful (only by the end of the day, when my right bicep was sore from carting my haul + other stuff home), but also fun. Thankfully for me, I got in early so there wasn't much of a crowd at all the stores I went to; but that said I still didn't get everything I wanted. *curses The Ordinary for being über-popular & selling out of the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% before I or anyone else could get their hands on it 😢*

So....betcha itching to know what I got right? Well mi amigas, here's everything I hauled:

The Monthly Happy List (July)

Hola mi amigas & happy Fri-YAY!

So another month is done & dusted & we Aussies are hurtling towards the end of winter, which I for one am rather happy about. I've mentioned before how winter isn't my fave time of year (even though I've found some good things to say about it too), but this year its felt a bit rougher than usual. Maybe that's due to me being sick several times in the last few months (including last month) or maybe I've just felt the cold a bit more than normal; but whatever it is, right now I'm like "roll on spring"!

Personal feelings about winter aside, let's focus on July & see what made me happy last month:

My Priceline 40% Off Skincare Sale Wishlist

Hola mi amigas!

Me posting twice in 1 day is a bit random I know, but I've got some exciting news: the one & only beauty sale I hang out for is starting in a couple of days! That's right, Aussie "drug store" Priceline is holding their bi-annual 40% off skincare sale this Wednesday through to Friday & lemme tell you, I'm bloody excited!

As I just mentioned (and as you may have seen from previous posts), I live for this sale. Forget makeup, forget hair care, forget...whatever....the 40% off skincare sale is my jam & I'm not afraid to say it. I'm also not afraid to say that I've been sweating on this sale for about the last 3 months....kinda like that Instagram stalker chick on the current season of The Bachelor Australia. But that's a topic for another time...

The Shopping Cart (June/July)

The Shopping Cart quote

It's that time of the month not that one...the one where I round up all my purchases for your voyeuristic pleasure & tell you about each & every one of them.

As always, any sales or links mentioned in this post are correct at the time of publishing. If for any reason the sales are no longer happening or the links are broken by the time you read this post, then I can not & will not be held responsible.

Compared with May's madness, both June & July were very quiet on the purchasing front. I guess the end of the financial year might've had something to do with it. However, I am gearing up for a spendy August & September as one of those months is my birthday month & I've got my eye on waaaay too many things!

But enough chit chat, let's get into it:

July Beauty Favourites

Hola mi amigas! Welcome to my first ever Beauty Favourites post!

When I first began blogging, it seemed like these sorts of posts were the shiz, but that seems to have died down a bit now & out of the bloggers I follow, I only see a small handful do these monthly posts.

The next question is: why have I never published one? Weeeeeeeell....for starters, my beauty stash is rather small (aside from my polish collection). I pretty much use the same products month in month out & haven't bought a lot of new stuff recently either. I did do a Beauty Faves section in my March Happy List post which frankly I should've dedicated a separate post to, given the way I type lol. I can't give you guys any guarantees that this will be a regular feature on TNL; I'll probably just pump them out when I feel like it.

So what products have I been lovin' this month? Read on peeps, read on:
