Shopping

Skincare, Bag, Clothes or Shoe Junkie?

I’m a self-confessed skincare junkie who would always look for new products to try, even when my bathroom is already overflowing with bottles and jars.

These are all the new products that I bought this month – Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup from Robinsons, Chacott Finishing Powder, Kao Megurism Steam Hot Eye Mask, Shiseido Tsubaki Water Mist and Shiseido Spotscover Concealer from BlingAlways.

I just love the thrills of trying new products, even though I’m fully aware that not all of them will deliver the good results that I want.

When I was in my twenties, I used to be a mad shoe junkie who would never stop searching for the most fabulous footwear around. I bought at least two pairs of shoes every month, oh well, that is like a pair every fortnightly.

I used to stay in Bishan Central (before I was married) and the Charles & Keith store was just a stone throw away. That’s the main reason why my shoe cabinet was overflowing with shoes at all times! I can even buy the same shoe design but in different colours. Yes, I was crazy as that.

However, I don’t buy a lot of shoes now, mainly because I don’t go to shopping malls so often. Motherhood also changed my style in the shoe department. I traded in my heels and platform shoes for more sensible flat shoes. After all, I can’t chase after our active 5-year-old in these fancy heels.

Also in my twenties, I was a bag junkie. I bought a handful of fashion bags – affordable (aka cheap) ones and in assorted colors and designs to complement my outfits.

Now, I don’t buy these fashion bags anymore because I know that I won’t use them for long. And I don’t want to waste a lot of storage space in my wardrobe. So, I rather invest in good quality designer bags, maybe two or three bags a year, and they are all my favourites.

Lastly in the clothes department, I’m not addicted to new clothes as I am to skincare products. I can survive a month without buying any new clothes for myself. In any case, I prefer to buy new clothes for my son instead.

So, among skincare products, shoes, clothes and bags, my priorities will be 1) skincare products, 2) designer bags, 3) clothes and 4) shoes.

What about you? What is your shopping style? I’d love to hear from you too!

    For me, clothes, skincare, jewellery. Very rarely bags and shoes, since I realize that I have a few to mix and match already.
