Haul: Dior, Chanel and YSL

I realize that I use the word "decided" quite frequently, and I'm sorry about that. I'll try to mix it up a little from now on. English isn't my mother tongue, but I'm doing my best to maintain some good language skills here. Anyway! I did receive my bag last Wednesday as scheduled, surprisingly enough. It arrived by courier at 8:45 PM or so, and damaged. Yeah, well, my bag was quite alright (thankfully), but the wrapping was ripped on one side. Sometimes I wonder what these couriers do to our mail before delivering it. On that note, courier that is, I'm happy to share that I had a visit from my favorite delivery man; Jimmy. A phone call from Jimmy means I'm getting a package from MyUS, filled to the brim with goodies from the US!

The shipment from last Thursday wasn't too big. I emptied out my MyUS inbox before I had to pay extra for storage, and I didn't have that much waiting for me. Even so it's always nice to have a box of makeup delivered on my doorstep, and here goes sharing with you what I got;

The Haul

First and foremost I've heard a lot about the infamous Diorskin Poudre Shimmer in 002 «Amber Diamond». And when I recently got news it's being discontinued, I started contemplating purchasing it while it was still possible. I don't know how many times I've been on the fence about something, and when I finally decide to get it it's way too late - and my only option is eBay, facing an insane price tag. By that time I'm usually so psyched about getting my hands on the item that I'm willing to pay the price asked. Then I had a conversation with my partner in crime shopping, Renate. She told me how much she loves her «Amber Diamond», and since I'm so easy to convince ..I instantly clicked it safely into my shopping cart. It's without a doubt the crown jewel of this haul!

Haul: Oh, the Luxury..

The last couple of weeks I've almost been constantly refreshing my wonderful little dashboard app called "Delivery Status" by Junecloud. It's an app where I can add tracking for everything I've ordered, and it'll instantly show me where my packages are, and sometimes also when they'll arrive (depending on the courier). This app works best for any courier service like UPS, DHL, FedEx - but I use it for anything traceable from USPS, Posten Norge, Royal Mail and which ever else postal service I'm expecting a delivery from. Anyway, let's get back on track, shall we? I've been loving this app lately because I've been shopping vigorously at Nordstrom, one of my all-time favorite online stores in the US (and a phenomenal substitute now that Sephora's being ridiculous).
