Payday Shopping at CentralWorld

1 Oct

 

My blog is getting so much like a shopping blog :p I dunno why but my shopping sickness has kicked in and has been around for four months now. I promise this to be the last for the month though, as I am still waiting for my Gmarket and ebay purchases. I will be on shopping detox after this weekend. For real.

Anyway, I still decided to go out this afternoon because if I stayed home I will just be itching to buy something off Gmarket so I went to the mall so I can stretch my legs hehe. Actually, I was planning to go to Platinum Fashion Mall (This Bangkok mall is a treasure trove of goodies 🙂 It is a 5 or 6-storey shopping center where you can get clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, souvenirs, etc at wholesale prices. You have to allot at least half a day to scour every shop and find the best deals) instead of CentralWorld. Traffic was sooo bad that I had to get off the bus and took a cab to CentralWorld instead.

I checked out Aldo, next, Dorothy Perkins, Zara and UNIQLO. I just purchased three pairs of shoes in the past two months so no shoe purchase today. I found some nice dresses at Dorothy Perkins but I wanted to check out Forever 21 first. As I passed by B2S, a bookshop, I browsed the laptop bags quickly and found something that I like.

I got this green Case Logic bag not only because it was on sale but because I needed a bag for my portable DVD player. It will come in handy when I travel.

I went to Tony Moly afterwards. I found only the cheapest stuff because I have a lot of make up and my next Gmarket shopping will consist of Tony Moly products which are way cheaper than the prices here.

Tony Moly Mask Sheets & Nail Polishes

This is my first time to buy from Tony Moly Thailand. I only got 2 Green Tea Essential Mask Sheet Packs, Hyaluronic Acid Natural Pulp Essence Sheet Mask, Top Coat Nail Polish (TC01) and Glittery Yellow Nail Polish (PP02). I didn’t get any sample from this shop. I saw brochures (I think it was a Tony Moly product brochure) with Song Joong Ki on the cover which I wanted but it was not offered to me by the shop assistant so I didn’t ask for it anymore. I’ll just keep the plastic bag haha.

My next stop was The Face Shop. I really can’t resist coming in a Face Shop store; I think I buy from them 4 times a month. The products at The Face Shop may be a little pricey but they are well-adapted to my skin. I still have a lot of products so I just chose what I need for the moment. But, I really don’t need anything I think 😉

Oh! I’m having problems with my pimples on my chin and forehead now (boo!), so I chose products to address this need. I got a Quick & Clean Mild Emulsion, Kiwi Yoghurt Pack (Wash Off), and Clean Face White Intensive Blemish Clear Patch. Since I’m a Face Shop member and my purchase was quite a lot (I think) I wasn’t shy to ask for samples. I was given two mask sheets – Vita A Mask Sheet (Carrot and Avocado Extracts with skin firming) and Vita C Mask Sheet (Strawberry and Raspberry Extracts with skin tone brightening). I really don’t know why they don’t give away samples here.

I got a 20% discount with my mask and skincare purchase (I think they forgot to deduct a further 5% because I’m a member. I never check the receipt, that’s why). Oh, there was a table with products at 50% off. I didn’t find anything I like, though two of the nail polishes I bought yesterday were discounted that much at the CentralWorld branch. Tsk.

Despite not having eaten lunch and a-quite-sore feet, I still headed straight to Forever 21 to look for dresses that’s not too casual and not too serious which I can wear to work.

I only got a purple dress, black pants and Purederm Make up Cleansing Tissues for my next clothes shopping will be at Gmarket ;). Forever 21 has still the promotion that THB1,600 purchase will enable you to get a free watch. I got a red one this time. I already had a purple watch from shopping there last September.

After a quick lunch at KFC, my last shopping stop was at Bershka. I found lovely and relatively inexpensive shoes (from THB1,800-2,900)  with chunky sky high heels and platforms. I really want them but I resisted the temptation. There’s always a next time 😉

I finished my shopping for the day with an anticipated Mass at Holy Redeemer Church.

Tomorrow’s schedule? I’m going to Browhaus at Siam Discovery. I have yet to check if I need to make an appointment or can just walk in.

How’s your weekend so far? Hope y’all have a good one! Cheers!

Shopping at The Face Shop + Forever 21

13 Sep

Shopping Bags
I went to CentralWorld today because I want to get my assistant a farewell present. I was planning to get her a shirt at UNIQLO since some stuff are still at introductory prices with its recent opening here in Bangkok last week. But since I wanted to try new skin care and cosmetic products I headed to the Korean skin care and cosmetics brands instead.
I first went to Etude House but the price of the products are really expensive when they’re not as costly in Korea or even in the Philippines. I headed next to Tony Moly; it was my first time to visit the actual shop. I wanted to get some nail polish, gel liner and the Tomatox Brightening Mask so I asked the sales assistant how much should the minimum purchase be to avail of the membership; it has to be at least THB2,500. I deemed that my purchases won’t reach that much; I’m also not so familiar with the product reviews so I decided to transfer to my tried and proven brand, The Face Shop.
 
Being a regular shopper at The Face Shop, I am familiar with some products but I discovered newer goodies at the CentralWorld shop which is also bigger than my frequently visited branches, Central Rama 3 and Siam Paragon. I decided right there and then that I will give my assistant The Face Shop (TFS) products as a farewell present. While browsing products for my soon-to-be former colleague and myself, I made sure to ask about the TFS membership. With my past purchases (which were a lot), the SAs never really offered me membership since probably they assumed that I am just a tourist. Oh well…
 
Here’s my mini-haul:

TFS Products + TFS membership card + GWP

Since I bought more than THB2,000 TFS products I was entitled to Kim Hyun Joong (KHJ)’s “Break Down” mini-album. KHJ is the face of The Face Shop. Of course, I am happy to receive it since I am fan. A BIG fan 🙂

I left The Face Shop happy 🙂 But I wonder why I always never get any TFS samples.  I have never really experienced getting samples with my purchases from Korean brands here in Bangkok. Or maybe it’s just me. Oh wait, they gave me a bit at Holika Holika shop here 😉

Anyway, I also dropped by UNIQLO as I saw a lot of people holding paperbags from the shop. Besides, I haven’t been really inside a UNIQLO shop. I remember seeing a shop in Oxford Street in London but I just walked passed it. Here in the Bangkok shop being barely a week old, there were still quite a number of people inside so I didn’t bother to look at everything. I just checked the THB290 shirts and they’re not quite bad. The opening promotion ends on the 18th of September. Maybe I have to go back on the weekend again.
 
As I need some clothes for work, I decided to have a look at Forever 21. I was only supposed to be window shopping but a mini-dress caught my eye and fit me. I can wear it to work so I decide to get it. As I was queueing by the till, I saw a mini poster that says a free watch will be given to purchases worth THB1,699. My dress was around THB1,290 so I went back and tried on a couple of dresses more. I liked a pale blue tunic and bought it as well to make my purchase more worthwhile hehehe. Of course, I got the watch. Who couldn’t resist a GWP? 😉

Shopping is so much fun!Cheers!
