November's Bag Of Love - Go, Girl, Go!

Assalamualaikum ladies,

Guess what i manage to get hold of the November BOL, phew**. Wanna know why, when Mimi posted up the BOL for November everybody seems to rush and subscribe b'coz it wasn't an ordinary bag it was Levi's, and it doesn't have the same BOL initial as the previous bag. And the other surprise was there's going to be an item from Panasonic, which is a first (I thought we were going to get the eye curler, but no it was something that cost 2 times more than the subscription itself *gasp*). So i quickly jumped in the bandwagon and hope and pray that i got a hand on November's BOL.

When Mimi and Miss A got back from their holiday, they announce the following day on who manage to get their hands on it, and Alhamdulillah my payment was made within the period of time. So yes i anxiously waited for the bag to arrive.


*Tada... the Levi's bag... just what i wanted, been trying to get a small denim tote for a long time. I had one something similar a long, long, long time ago, but i don't know where it is now :(.... and since the bag is so gorgeous, even my mother in law liked it, but sadly it sold like hot cakes.


The content in the bag.

This little baby was an extra something, if you notice in my earlier pictures above there was a card for redemption.

What i got from them was 2 sachets of Clarins Double Serum & Extra Firming Day (5ml)- Which is a wrinkle lifting cream (to be applied after serum).

Guess what Mimi has open subscriptions for December BOL and the bag would be something like the one below, and she has even included a snap shot of the items that would be in it. B'coz some of them might be buying the bag for others as a xmas gift.

 For me it's a spoiler, no more surprise but what to do Mimi has very good reason to do as what i mentioned above. Anyway if you lovely ladies wanna subscribe the BOL you may do so at the following links below, it only cost RM39.90.

Comment:
I use this whenever i'm rushing out, and i'm totally loving the scent. Just roll it on at the pulse on my neck and wa'la makes me smell nice and fresh. I've loved fresh oceanic/aqua scent since the time i purchase my first Oceanus perfume from Body Shop, but since they discontinued it, which i was so disappointed, i never got the chance to find something that is similar to it.
