Boxing Day’s bag o’ goodies

A glimpse of the crowds on Boxing Day in Sydney. (via bumblebeexeucaryotez)

So now that I’ve had a full day of rest after shopping all day Boxing Day and the day after, I finally have enough energy to blog about my purchases. Trust me, shopping is hard. It’s tiring. It’s hard on your feet and it’s tough, especially on Boxing Day when there’s a gazillion people in the city and 10 girls are fighting over the same 500% off handbag.

So I spent Day One in the city, specifically the QVB and David Jones primarily. Unfortunately, I didn’t really buy anything since I was with my aunt, uncle and cousins and was dragged along to the shops they wanted to go to (an intense gamer store, Hobbyco, where I suspect Beauty and the Geek producers go to find their contestants – needless to say, that was the first and last time I’ll ever go in there – and the ground level of QVB, aka designer central, where you had to line up to enter stores like Coach and Bally. Someday, I kept thinking, someday.) Unfortunately, since the price of one of those bags is more than the balance of my bank account, it was kinda pointless.

Day Two, in Chatswood, I had much more success (shopping alone = productivity!), but still only covered Westfield and some of Chatswood Mall, and not The Chase (shops closed waaay too early!)

Okay, so enough of my babbling. Here’s a snapshot of my purchases (yes, they’re pretty boring, but hey, I’m just your average poor 18-year-old uni student…)
