Sale Haul

Friday, 3 February 2012  at 1:36 pm

This afternoon I'm bumming with my brother at home. I happened to fall ill yesterday and my brother happened to get infected with my beautiful germs *laughs* For some reason in my house, I get sick the worst, then my brother gets infected and my mum is the last person to get ill. My dad never catches whatever we have. So, as the title suggests, I have a "sale haul". No, I am not giving away any of my clothes (sorry) but I've decided that if I want to go to Asia with my favourite person at the end of next year, I need to cut down on shopping and when I shop I can only shop when there's a sale. I actually had a deal with my mother that I wouldn't shop at all for two years, because I really want to go to Asia next year. When I was buying the items in my haul that is to follow, she kept telling me "the money that you're going to use to spend in Asia is now reduced because you bought clothes now" *laughs* So, I need to tame my inner shopaholic *laughs*

LOVED! These floral shorts, but when I tried them on my mum said it made my legs look really fat *laughs* so I didn't buy them. All the clothing items featured in my haul are from Truworths.

Aren't they just perfect for Spring/Summer?

Love the fit of these dark wash jeans. They fit snug all the way down my leg and usually that's hard for me to find because my hips are broad and my legs are slim.

Love the animal print belt accent. I didn't buy these jeans, they weren't on sale *laughs* 

I've always wanted a wool cape, at the time when I wanted it was so expensive! And I honestly thought it wouldn't be put on sale, but to my surprise and fortune I found it in the sale rack *smiling*

This is actually a pink sheer blouse, I didn't buy this either because it wasn't my size and the armpit area sagged. If I had to get it altered the draping by my hips would disappear and I just thought it wouldn't be worth it.

Oversized winter cascading jersey (?) It reminded me of Alaska *laughs* so I bought it. It's so warm and it'll be perfect for Winter.

Bought more tops to tuck into my skirts, on sale of course*laughs*

It looks so cute tucked into a black skirt! I bought this at Queenspark, and bought it for 129 zar ($16.96) I think the original price was 299 zar ($39.33). It seems I'm drawn to beige colours this season.

Gosh! I bought this at Woolworths! Love! Love! The back part has this satin type material, it's light and airy. Isn't clingy at all...I love it! I bought this with a voucher given to me by my dad as a gift *laughs* I think I did pretty well in terms of this haul, everything was either bought on sale or by a gift card.

I bought these skirts some time ago. I bought the black skirt from Jay Jay's and black and white printed skirt from Woolworths with a voucher. I had to get both skirts altered because the waistband was too big. It fit snug on my hips but the waistband jutted out and annoyed me to the depths of hell.

My mum decided to get a new phone! And what did she decide to get? The Samsung Galaxy S 2!

I love the huge screen! It's such an improvement on my phone. It's much faster and smoother. I've noticed that with my phone the more pictures or videos you load onto it, the slower it becomes, but with the S 2 it doesn't slow down at all. It laughs in the face of depleting memory *laughs* I also love that when you text it vibrates, it reminds me of my favourite persons HTC. There's also an option to power save when your battery is at 50%.

I decided to test out the camera in the pictures that are to follow.

Taken in natural lighting.

When taking pictures under artificial lighting, the camera isn't that good, but in natural lighting it's pretty good but not impressive.

What I bought for Christmas! I know it should have been in my Christmas haul, but I wanted my Christmas haul to be exclusively what I got from Asia. I bought my iPod at Look & Listen for 1, 999 zar ($262.95). When my favourite person went to Asia he bought a 32 gig iPod...for exactly the same price! But we got matching iPod's so it's oki! 

I hope everyone will have a good weekend! I only have a week left of vacation and then I'm onto early morning biochem classes, ugh!

Till the next post!
Bye Bye!


  1. Those shorts look adorable! Love the jersey, and the haul in general. Congrats on the Galaxy S2, I've heard lots of good things about it!

  2. Those shorts are nice and do not make you look fat at all!
    Did you notice that a majority of this haul are the same colored clothing? LOL.

  3. @Shen, thanks! I'm glad you like the haul! ^^

    @Jessica, ahaha, too bad my mum didn't feel the same way you felt about the shorts, then I would've been able to buy them! DX I did notice! It was totally coincidental that the majority of it is the same shade/color, hehe
