Winners Haul

If you're familiar with the stores, Ross Dress for Less, Marshalls or TJ Maxx, than the Canadian version of those types of stores is Winners

Winners carry just about everything they can, but with a reasonable price. Everyday, they push out new products and because of it, when they have something you like, you better grab it, since chances are, it's probably the only one in the store.

I speak from experience, when I say this, I love being customer at Winners, then working there ¯\(◡‿◡) /¯

Overview of my haul.
On Thursday, I went shopping downtown, after getting my textbook from the Vancouver Library and decided to pop in, with the intention of looking for a wool hat only. However, I ended up getting more items than I anticipated. 

From my haul, I got:
 Marc Jacobs Blush Perfume
 Anna Sui Foaming Moisture Wash
 Black Pom Pom Hat
 Sheep Wool Knee High Socks

The beauty products I picked up.
The item that I was most excited about was the Marc Jacobs Blush Perfume. I wanted to get it when they were selling it at Sephora, but I lost my chance to get it back then...but I'm glad I found it at a cheaper price!

The Anna Sui Foaming Wash was something I didn't intend to buy, but since my skin is sh*t these days, I figure I give it a try

Clothing products I got!
So the whole point of me going into Winners was to buy a hat,  but ironically, I'm debating if I should return it or not. It's a cute design, but when I tried it on at home, it didn't look right.

The other item I got was a pair of sheep wool knee high socks. I love them already they're super soft

A Closer View

The packaging was so cute, inside and out.
The packaging of the bottle in detail.
Backside, along with the ingredients.
I tried the product out and I like it. It smells like a combination of lavender and rose tea and it goes on the skin very nicely and smoothly ♥ ♥ ♥

Smoothed out.
The foam also blended very well and it wasn't too sticky. It left my skin feeling refresh and clean.

Marc Jacobs Blush Perfume.
I was just too excited when I saw this product. I might have even said "OMG" out loud ٩(ε

Limited Edition, they weren't kidding about that!
Flowery designs all around.
Cause everyone knows closeup diagonal photos are aesthetic ( ᐛ )و
Another closeup.
The details.
With that, this concludes my Winners haul...which I realized it's the first time I posted about it on here, weird, since I buy too much things from there

Thanks for reading,
