The August Want List

How many times have you seen me saying I’m broke? Yup. I am. It’s so sad. Anyway, I like making these lists and ticking things off so I feel like I’m using stuff and replacing them with quality products.

Since I wasn’t able to tick off even half the stuff on my June and July lists, some of these things are carry-overs (like shoes) and jeans (since I had to throw away a pair this morning) and others are more immediate needs/wants.

  • Converse Unisex Monochrome, size 4.5 – R650
  • Trenery Black Jeans – R749
  • Mac Patisserie lipstick – R190
  • Paula’s Choice Hydralight Lotion – R390
  • Paula’s Choice Hydralight Daily – R390
  • Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner Chocolate Shimmer – R300-ish?
  • Parfait by Affinitas Bra (Dusty Rose) – R400-ish
  • Jo Malone perfume – some ungodly amount of money
  • Black boots of some sort
  • New pillows – R80 – R180
  • Lush African Paradise body conditioner – R325 *sniff*
  • Lush D’Fluff Shaving cream – R98

Here’s to staying on track and saving allll the money.

"We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown."

- T. S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock (1917)

  • Some fucker in my area threw a can at my car, while yelling at me. Couldn't tell what he was saying and I didn't do anything wrong. Wtf.... 2 hours ago
  • What happens to brands that were exclusive to Stuttafords? E.g., @RetailBoxSA no longer stocks/sells TheBalm, but with no Stuttafords...? 6 hours ago
  • Looking for an eyeliner for the top waterline that isn't gonna smudge/run. I've tried Nyx Slide on Glide on, MAC & some drugstore. Help? 1 day ago
  • This John Mayer song, "Still feel like your man"... Sounds like he is saying "still feel like your dad"... Which changes everything. 2 days ago
