These are an accumulation of online orders from since late December until now…
Some parcels were shipped from local sources while others came all the way from China and Japan. 🙂
I hadn’t planned on being MIA last week but it was my final week at my old job and it was so busy! I ended up having a lot of social engagements last week (goodbyes) – being out every night makes it difficult to blog! Things likely won’t settle down until after Labour Day weekend…
This post is a combined June and July accountability (I know, I’m so late with this!) June was a No-Buy month whereas July is a Low-Buy month. My budget for July was originally $200 but since I slightly overspent back in April, I had to subtract off $1.70 from my budget, leaving me with $198.30 to play with.
I was able to stretch my budget by supplementing with gift cards – plus, I received some birthday presents! 😀
July was my “Low-Buy” month which coincided with my birthday month (it was no accident, I orchestrated it so that I was able to haul for my birthday 😉 ), so the floodgates were open and I especially went to town with online orders. Here are the 3 online retailers I purchased from:
Makeup Geek, Beauty Bay, and Glossier! It was my first time ordering from Makeup Geek and Glossier. 🙂 For reference, I live in Toronto, Canada and costs will be stated in Canadian dollars (CAD) unless otherwise noted. As an “international” customer from most online sources, it’s always a challenge when it comes to shipping time and costs from a Canadian perspective – here’s what I bought and my experience.
