Last Wednesday, a fantastic new shopping destination opened in Auckland!
Obviously, mall openings are not a common occurence. God only knows how long I’ve been waiting for NorthWest Shopping Centre to open, since the initial announcement of its construction was released.
The mall is fairly convenient to reach, right off a motorway and only about 20 minutes from my house. Bonus points for being next to a giant Pak’n Save and a mega Mitre 10 (new dwelling for mom and I). Across the main road is also an existing shopping area with stores like Dick Smith and Kathmandu and some others that appear to be of little significance to me. And what’s better – the land around NorthWest is still being cleared! With so much land, NorthWest is bound to be a busy hub I will frequent in the next year or two ^^
Anyway, onto what I bought!
Wild Pair had a $20 off for $100+ spent offer. I was really only after the shoes (to replace my current comfy travel shoes), but for the sake of getting the discount, I purchased the top at its original price. ITS FREAKIN’ INSANE ORIGINAL PRICE. /fliptable
80NZD. Horrendous right? But it was so perfect for Fiji and I wanted that discount so much :'(
Considering I was fully prepared to purchase the flats with no discount (and then added this top after), I could tell myself the top is $70.
It doesn’t make me feel any better -_-;
Farmers in NorthWest had the most lovely household section. It was the ENTIRE UPPER FLOOR.
I could live there.
In fact, the diffuser section smelled so beautiful that I splurged on my first diffuser. Well, the first diffuser I ever paid for. At 50% off, I could live with the splurge.
It looks so pretty because unlike the standard bamboo or wood sticks, this diffuser uses a string attached to the flower which sits atop the pot.
I also purchased a rose quartz long necklace which I’ve been eyeing for a while. Probably will take this to Fiji too
I also purchased a Max skirt, but from the Albany mall. Northwest Wild Pair ran out of size 8 in the white top I purchased, so I had to pick the top up from Albany Westfield shopping centre. Naturally, more shopping had to be done while we’re there, right?
The Max skirt is just something simple for work. Not sure if you can see, but there’s a few layers of diagonal draping from the left hip to the front.
Mom and I also enjoyed a chocolate cake (slightly dry) and coffees at Majestic Tea Bar prior to the prize draw for a Honda car.
Which I didn’t win, by the way. Just in case you were curious :'(
