2 weekends ago was texas tax free weekend for back to school shoppers. i'm not in school anymore, but who says i can't take advantage of it....(evil grin).
i went to san marcos outlet (if you're in the area definitely check out this outlet). it's huge with a lot of designer brand stores if you like them (i.e. gucci, tory burch, fendi, ferragamo, and prada(coming end of this year)). as expected i wasn't the only one taking advantage of the tax free weekend. there were so many people that we had to spend 30 mins just to park. texas heat ain't helping either.
i was hoping to score a pair of ferragamo low heel chucky pump, but found none
that i like at the price that i like. there were some discounted ones for cheaper, but not what i wanted. it's always a hit or a miss at the outlet. that's the price to pay for not wanting to pay retail.
side story.....mr. adventure read somewhere that some goods(probably low-end to mid-range) that are made in italy are actually made by chinese immigrants living in italy with low wages and poor working conditions. you would think "made in italy" are goods made by highly crafted artistic italian, but that's not always the case. what are your thoughts?
showing some of my favorites.
from cc0, l’occitane and crabtree & evelyn
rose 4 reines hydrating face mist. very light with a lovely scent.
body foam wash in mango and pomegranate. smells yummy but doesn't lather as well as i like. more bubbles-> more fun!
hand therapy in lavender(i'm loving the faint scent and the mini tube that fits in my purse)
hand therapy in citron honey & coriander
boobi brown concealer in beige. great match and great coverage.
l’occitane cheery blossom solid perfume. the floral scent is sweet and not too overwhelming.
mcdonald’s smufs toys are over and I only have 4. kicking myself for not making the extra turn when I passed by one.
I’m going to anaheim mid-sept for a conference. any recommendations for places to pick up japan/korean beauty items around the area? not sure if I have the time, but just in case ;P
