Bagging Bargains

Diary of a Shopaholic

Lindt Lovers

Yesterday I was in the City and came across a bargain that I have to share with all the lovers of Lindt chocolate out there! Mmmmm Lindt is my favourite brand of chocolate. Woolworths at Town Hall (George St) are selling the Lindt Lindola boxes of chocolate for $6! A box of these would usually cost around $16.00, so of course i had to bag this bargain!

Why are they so cheap? They’re discounted by $9.50 because they are best used before 30/09/2013. That’s two weeks away, theres no way this box is going to last more than two days haha. I never buy myself a box of chocolates, usually only a bar or block so this was a nice treat and they are definately worth the $6.00…just wishing I bought more now. The box is an assortment of many different chocolates filled with caramel, praline, macadamias and more. It also has a mixture of white, milk and dark chocolate. I’m not a fan of dark chocolate but i even like Lindt’s dark chocolate.

I was given a Lindt Lindola box of chocolates for the first time a few months ago as a thank you gift from my Prac Teacher so i knew what i was getting for my $6.00. That’s also why the picture has a thank you card in it, the box i bought yesterday was half gone before i could take a picture of it, you can’t leave chocolate lying around in my house!

Original Price: $15.50

Bought Price: $6.00

Until next shopping spree, enjoy! x


Obsessed with Guess

Rightfully so, my first post is about a Guess handbag. Handbags have and always will be my first love. They come in so many shapes, sizes & colours and they complete any outfit. My favourite brand is Guess, i’ve always called Guess ‘my brand’ because my name starts with G. Guess handbags are stylish and beautifully designed. Each style of Guess bag has a patterned lining which adds to the look of the bag.

When i go shopping, i can never go past Strandbags without going in (even if I don’t need anything!). On Friday I spotted this Guess Hazelton bag on special and splurged, i fell in love with the colour. The tag said the colour is red but really the bag is orange. It looks fantastic with an on trend monochrome outfit! I know this because I used my new handbag the first chance i got, which was at a birthday on Saturday. I am very indecisive and i carried this bag around the shop for a while weighing up whether or not to get it but i’m glad that i did, no buyer’s remorse whatsoever! The bag was on sale for $99.00 and I had a $5 voucher from my Strandbags loyalty card.

P.S. The lining inside this bag is Leopard print

Original Price: $159.00

Bought Price: $94.00

Until next shopping spree, enjoy! x
