The Biggest Haul of my Life! + Youtube Video


I wasn't really planning to haul this much for my birthday, but while in Australia, I realized, it's my thirtieth; I'm entering a new age chapter in my life so I just told myself while strolling in Melbourne "YOLO!"

A lot of significant things have happened to me in my 20s; at the same time, I've learned a lot of important lessons too like just letting go and not to worry too much about things. I tend to worry too much (especially about money, whether I have it or not) and I thought that doing the biggest splurge of my life would be a great exercise; it may seem too materialistic, but it has a more profound meaning to me; I want to tell myself that better days will always come and one will always find a way if they persist. 

Anyway! So what are in my biggest haul?



My haul includes food, fashion, souvenirs, and of course, beauty! Let me muse about them.

First, beauty. I hauled from Mecca Maxima, Sephora, and Chemist Warehouse. It's my first time to visit Mecca Maxima in Brisbane and I love it as much as Sephora! Mecca Maxima is Australia's famous beauty chain and feels every bit of Sephora; it carries brands like Too Faced, Urban Decay, Hourglass, Nars, MAC, and their namesake beauty line. Chemist Warehouse is my most favorite beauty store in Australia because of discounted perfumes! Who doesn't want discounted perfumes???

From Sephora, I got Kat Von D items, Huda Beauty, Tarte, Anastasia, Beauty Blender, Tangle Teezer, Philosophy, and Dior. From Mecca Maxima, I only purchase Hourglass Ambient Powder in Radiant (finally!). From Chemist Warehouse, I got Sudocrem, Redwin, Lucas Papaw, W7 Cosmetics, CK, Ralph Lauren, Jean Patou, and Maybelline. my favorite Rimmel primer, I got from Big W, one of the biggest department stores in Australia.

Adidas NMDs for mom and Nike AirMax 90s in the color combination I have been looking for. I also got this freakishly expensive shoe cleaner from Jason Mark, but it's gentle, easy to use, and works!

 Wonder Woman souvenirs from Movie World, a Warner Bros. theme park in Gold Coast, Brisbane, Australia. Can you tell how much I love Wonder Woman lol!

Some souvenirs I got around Melbourne and Brisbane; because Filipinos just can't go home without country souvenirs lol!

Chocolates, of course! Australia's chocolates are amazing; I find them to be much creamier and tastier. These are my usuals; I also love that there are more Tim Tam flavors now! The fancy chocolate in the flatlay, which is Mango and Passionfruit, is from Yarra Valley Chocolatery and Ice Creamerie, a destination for foodies in Melbourne. I also got Manuka Honey for my mom.

GoPro Hero 5 Suit, a primary accessory that I want to buy for my new Go Pro Hero 5 camera. I also purchased Tana Zanolin, a leather conditioner that cleans and conditions leather, plus it's gentle and works on a lot of types of leather; it's affordable too!

Last but not the least, the newest baby to join my luxury bag collection. Finally, a new bag! A lot of you, especially my long- time readers, that I'm a bag hag. The newest addition is YSL Toy Shopping tote; I realized, I prefer soft leather bags now because they're much more low maintenance compared to rigid, structured bags so I got this instead, plus I've been meaning to get a canvas bag for travel that has just the right size. I love the stone gray color too!
