Shopping, Life, and Etude House

Best Blogger Tips
"Shopping is my cardio!", so goes the famous quote. I am in absolute agreement with it! Other than being a good exercise, it helps me maintain my sanity, too. Last month has been really quite stressful for me in all aspects, all because time is not enough. I realize that as you grow older, time becomes a privilege. Hmmm... lemme make another philosophical post regarding time some other time. Hehehe~

For now, let's talk about how I fought stress by... shopping in Etude House! (^_^) But you have always keep in mind to be disciplined and to spend below your means. It is okay to buy stuff to make you feel better, but spending more than what you can brings in more financial problems... and with it comes more stress. And that's what we're trying to avoid, right?

So back to the topic. I went to the nearest Etude House branch in my place to buy some cleansing tissues. I use this everyday to remove the dust and pollution on my face when I get to the office. I bought two big packs enough for 3 months of use. 


Happy Tea Time Cleansing Tissue (PhP 198.00)
Actually, my purpose of going to EH was just to buy some cleansing tissues. But when you get there, you will be mesmerized by all the cute cosmetics... the pinks, the beautiful posters of Korean endorsers, and the very accommodating EH sales reps that call you "Princess". It was not my first time in EH, so I already knew what to expect. I did my best to stay disciplined and focused on spending on a budget of PhP500.00. 

The next thing I got was a box of cotton puff. The label says 'puff' but it is actually a cotton pad . I just got curious about the difference between a cotton pad and your ordinary absorbent cotton. Hehehe

In order to make it to the PhP500 mark, I bought a face mask. It is always a face mask! They are my beauty obsession. For this, I chose to get the I Need You mask sheet in Lemon. It has a big letter L on it. The I Need You mask series has all the letters of the alphabet. Uh oh! Sounds like a plan, right? Hahaha

For this haul, I got the EH Pink Hair Tie as the GWP. It is so cute that I don't want to open it! The packaging is super cool, as well!

EH always has the cutest GWP's. Up to now, I didn't open my hair tie. I get happy just by looking at it. (^_^)

So there is my Etude House shopping haul for the day. I got the thing that I use regularly (cleansing tissues), something out of curiosity (cotton pad), and another because of obsession (face mask). Hehehe~




A girl, even when stressed, should still look beautiful! Just as the quote goes...


So move on and continue even if terrible things happen. Remember to still regard problems as if it's nothing. Thankfully, we have cosmetics to help us look good even if we are under tremendous stress. Hehehe
