for me im going to invest in Clinique skin care products,
a jansport backpack,
a good cover up / foundation,
waist belts,
and a few pairs of really nice boots like those short knit uggs that have buttons on the side..

how about you? :3

ooo neat idea n_n!

I'm the same as you where I'll probably get some new makeup + skincare products. I especially want to try out a dry shampoo

As for clothing I'm thinking hoodies and jeans, maybe add some cardigans.
I guess just a bit of everything really.

Funny thing though, most of this shoppping will take place when I start school. Cause all my favourite shopping areas are around my school in the city!

Aha, JanSport backpacks are classic. Me, I'm saving up for a Macbook Pro. It'll be easier for me to work on tasks and briefs if I don't have to transition from a Mac in college to a PC at home. As for clothes, I think I have enough at the moment.

they are, but its exactly what i need. i like the style, colours, they're big, and just completely useful.

I hate complicated backpacks. I tried the whole messenger bag thing...didnt work out so well. I also use big tote bags for skl books though instead of backpacks. i switch throughout the year ^_^

I definitely want to buy more dresses or skirts. I'm tired of always wearing either shorts (or pants sometimes) for when it's warm. I just want to dress in a more feminine manner. Also I want to buy a new tote bag for my shit even if I just bought one lol.

i have to buy new undies and undershirts too hahah xx <-- MUST HAVES !
datass

I might buy a new backpack, seeing as if the one i bought last year that i thought was bigger is actually a lot smaller than i thought and has a hole in the bottom sad.gif
I may look at jansport now.

A bunch of clothes - definitely more layers (tops) since it's just more comfortable. I need to buy clothes in solid colors, rather than graphic tees. Plus, layers are just more versatile. ;P

I need to buy more flats. I need to stop wearing heels so much. I love wearing heels, but it's bad for my feet. I have read somewhere that high heels can lead to bunions?! Eeek ph34r.gif I've been wearing my rainbow flipflops lately with my skinnies, hehe tongue.gif I am really picky about flats since my feet are wide and big. When I wear my flats, the top of my feet (leading to my ankle) look puffy for some reason, but the flats are NOT tight - there's plenty of room. I'm hoping to find some cute pairs in Hong Kong for cheap haha.

More pants - I need more straight-leg or skinnies, since the boot-cut ones make me look more stubbly without wearing heels. At least with straight-leg/skinnies, I can wear flats wink.gif

And more makeup/skincare. I really need to start taking care of my skin and invest in a night-time moisturizer. I haven't found any that I've liked (brands I've tried: shiseido/clinique/lancome) based on samples and texture from testing at counters. Definitely more makeup, since I know that I HAVE to look presentable when looking for an internship this coming school year.

if you have a ross near you, you should try there before looking at buying one "off the self"

you can get one there for $20 rather than $50 at stores that carry them. XP

im speaking assuming you know what Ross is.
I've met people that dont :/

I am buying solid clothes this year too, neutral colours only and a few coloured ones.

as for you skin care night moisturizer. I am not a fan of Mary-Kay at all. But my mom used to sell it and i've tried their day and night creams and moisturizers they sell. She has a whole bunch of both that no one ever came and picked up from her after they ordered. She also has Timewise Day and Night creams, which have age fighting agents in them. If you're interested in them, PM me and I can talk to you more about them. I am not a fan of MK but i like that stuff ^_^

Actually, I'm only interested in Mary Kay's Blemish Control Toner (Formula 3), which is a HG for me. I use it every day, once a day. Back in high school, I used to religiously day and night (twice a day) for a year because I kept getting a bunch of small blemishes around my chin and all over my forehead. It's the only MK thing I will buy. Thanks for the information though. :] A lot of people do like their time-wise line. P.S. I usually buy 2-3 at a time of the toner, since I buy it from some random women off craigslist. haha But they offer them at a discount so it's all good, and they're legit sellers.


I really like my daily moisturizer (Shiseido), but the night creams/moisturizers were kinda mehhh for me. I've only sampled/tested The Skincare, Benefiance, and Pureness ones. I should test the White Lucent one next time I'm in Sephora. My sisters and niece swear by Shiseido for face products.

Oh no, what I meant was that I got it off craigslist and it was legit. There's a lot of scams on craigslist! I even see FAKE M.A.C. stuff on there! I'm like wtf, it's pretty OBVIOUS that they are fake, but I only thought people from China were selling them (look on ebay!). And there's a lot of shady stuff on craigslist. There's also a lot of great deals as well. I'm just saying that the seller is legit, as I've seen some people trying to sell of makeup and beauty products that are either fake or they are old. So my comment was aimed at craigslist itself, not at you. Sorry for the misunderstanding. sad.gif

its okay :P
i was just ready to hand over proof of my legit-ness (:P) if it was directed towards me! =O

well do you use craigslist for local things?
because i only use craigslist for local deals, so i cant get scammed and things/payments can be handed to each other face to face..

and where i live, we dont have mac or anything like that (i'm one of the few people in my town who even know what it is :( ) so i've never run into that problem,

but we're getting way off topic lol x

a jansport backpack,
I've used the same JanSport backpack through three years of high school and one year of college. I'm using it next year, too.

I don't do the whole "back to school shopping" besides school supplies.

I got a really cute shoulder book bag from target for 6 dollars

I don't think it was supposed to be a book bag but I made it into one
