May Haul - Massive Dubai Shopping

I think May is my month of shopping and I just go crazy shopping all I want without having any limits !!! If you don't trust me see my last year's shopping during the month of May HERE. Of course it is a mere coincidence. It was a sudden trip to Dubai and I went to join my hubby there, who had gone there on an official trip for a months time. So without saying much, here are the piccys for all you there to enjoy :)

I got a separate suitcase to carry all my stuffs. This cute little American Tourister in Hot Pink became my favorite.



Like my previous post let me start this haul post with sweets again. I didn't get many chocolates this time as all are either diabetic or diet conscious at home including me :P These are cute heart shaped candies in four different flavors.


I got a cute bunch of roses.. guess what?? a cute bunch of roses beneath which there was a storage box. I still have not decided for what I am going to use this box. Any suggestion?


You know I am a sucker for anything in pink, be it a mobile phone, digital cam or just anything in pink. Even the suitcase shown in the pic above is an example to prove that. So I got a pen drive and hair straightener in hot pink. :)


Also got few mints, gums, [those sachets are Sephora foundation samples.. oops did I say that - I thought I should keep the make up stuffs reserved to be revealed at the last :P] The "I Love Shopping" money saver is one of the best products I have got. I am planning to save money in this, for this kind of a haul once in a year :D Isn't that a great idea??


Nail Art has always been a dream for me and seeing Konad Nail Art Kit in other blogs, I always wanted buy a starter kit for myself. Along with the kit I also got few nail stickers [not from Konad] :) You can see two cute pots on either side of those stickers, they are nothing but lip balms in peach and bubble gum..Yummy :)


I got few keys chains and this pretty stone studded mirror.


Few Bic razors for me and mom.


Got a Hot Pink Pouch with matching mirror :P Have to fill this up with my daily make up essentials :)


My hubby gave me too many surprises one among which is a breakfast at the Armani Cafe :) Not many of us know that Armani even has a cafe of its own. I ordered Margharita with Hot Chocolate and he ordered a Chicken Sandwich. All were yummy. I loved the wet towel they gave, that I asked for one and got it with me.


It usually happens this way. We both order food for ourselves and we would taste each others food, when I would like his food better than mine and will end up eating what he got :P It happened even here, the sandwich was yummy. The pic below is something for you to drool.


Got many sunglasses - Armani, Fendi, Prada and Hugo Boss :) Not just for me but my hubby, dad and mom-in-law as well :)


My shopping becomes incomplete without bath products and thus got 2 Fa Shower Gels and Cocoa Butter Cream.


My love for perfume never dies.. Yes I got five of these for myself !!!!


I wanted to try Solid Perfumes and when I saw this from The Body Shop I just picked it up as I already have the Love Etc perfume and I really like it.


One more solid perfume from L'Occitane. Also original shea butter and a cherry blossom soap from the same brand. This craze for solid perfumes started for me after seeing the Thann Solid Perfume in Rad's Blog. Yes people like Rads, Cynthia, Rati and Rashmi tempt me the most with their shopping :P


Small size moisturizer tubs to be carried in my hand bag.


There were ads everywhere for the launch of this facial mist. So thought of giving it a try :)



This time I restricted myself from handbags and thus got these cute purse, one in pink, one in purple and 2 wallets in white from Kipling ;) I love these monkeys :) I bought them separately.. I can never buy Kipling without these cute ones.


Now comes the most interesting part - Make Up. Tada. Drooling.. Aren't you ? Even I am :D I wanted to get at least one product from each brand [Brands that are not available in my place]


I got the Inglot Travelling Brush Kit. Thought it was very necessary for me. After all my shopping was over I found the Inglot counter so having shopped almost all I wanted I thought I will just pick up the brush kit for this time.


YSL

I got a gloss and blush from YSL.


Sephora

A primer from Sephora.


Benefit

My first powder blush and I got it from Benefit. I am just loving the color.


L'Oreal

L'Oreal Duo White Perfect that has a Powder Foundation along with a highlighter. It comes in a cute packaging with mirror and an applicator.


MAC

Not that MAC is not available here but I just couldn't walk past the counter every time :P So I got a Mineralize Powder Foundation and the most raved Cosmo lipstick :)


This is the interesting part, a completely lip gloss person gets all lipsticks. The brands include Rimmel, Revlon, Chanel and Guerlain :)


I also picked some random stuff from a grocery store. It was an duo eyeliner and kajal. I got two of them. They are really nice. Looks royal isn't it?


I am very tired after doing this really lengthy post...Oooffffffff.. So let me go and get some sleep. I might again go to Dubai, not very sure. Chances are low but still if I make it do you have any shopping suggestions for me at Dubai? Please share :)

  37. Jomol I was really worried that I couldn't get anything from MUFE. Almost in all malls I visited the MUFE SAs were missing or the MUFE counter didn't have many products !!!!

    Also if Dubai govt knows someone is shopping so much they will give me free tickets ;)
