It Will Be September 7, After All. The Shu Price Drop.

Well, Mr Rudd is keeping us on our toes, isn't he? I misread the headlines on Saturday about his calling the election (he hadn't), corrected my post on Sunday morning and a few hours later? He'd popped round to the Governor General's and sought formal permission to make Saturday September 7 Election Day. Glad we've cleared that up and thanks, Kevin for picking a date that works for me. Now let the battle of the three word slogans begin.....

I think my days as a wannabe political blogger are definitely over. Keeping tabs on the breaking news is just too hard and requires a level of energy and concentration I just don't have right now.

So I'm going to put my beauty blogger hat back on and deliver this bombshell.....

Shu Uemura fans, look what my inbox provided! News of a Shu Uemra price drop at David Jones. The SSG Institute of Finance has done a quick price comparison with Strawberrynet and come to the conclusion that though the Australian prices are a few dollars higher, the convenience factor and range available in store and online via the DJs site more than makes up (what a pun) for it. So buy, buy, buy!

with up to 40% off across half the range

the shu uemura PRICE DROP is effective
AUGUST 6TH, 2013
and incorporates many iconic, cult products including:
cleansing oils 150ml were from $55 NOW from $36
painting liners were $55 NOW $35
false eyelashes were $52 NOW $35
UV under base mousse was $54 NOW $49
and everyone’s favourite: the cult ‘eyelash curler’ was $40 NOW $29

The price drop is effective August 6 - which is tomorrow so get yourselves to DJs ASAP. I won't be offended if you stop reading now and start making your shopping list instead.

Wouldn't you know it? I've gotten myself another cold. Just in time for this sunny weather were having in Sydney. I'm eating oranges like there's no tomorrow in the hope that they will knock this thing on its head. I'm going to try and get some rest as well. I'm in talks with Baby SSG in between rescuing slivers of cheese from his pyjamas and from around his neck. The good news, I'm seeing the humour despite feeling so wretched.

Before I say goodbye, here's a couple of photos from my weekend. They made me feel so excited that spring is just around the corner.  The bursts of colour, the hint of sun.  I love the changing of seasons in Sydney.

Happy Monday!


  1. Your career as a political blogger is over, surely not? You predicted the election date, so you clearly need to keep tapping those prophecy talents. Keep that crystal ball polished SSG!

    1. Working on it, Minerva! I have around 4 weeks to get a winner out of my crystal ball. Best get cracking now.

  2. Wow, all these beauty brands dropping prices. Not a bad thing at all!

    Yes, I always compare prices against Strawberrynet too - gone are the days where Strawberrynet were always cheaper, I was surprised to see that they're actually more expensive than ordering from Kiehls direct!

    Hope this price drop trend continues!

    1. I know! SN is getting pricy, isn't it! And no free samples for regular shoppers....

  3. I think Australian retailers are finally cottoning on to the fact that the punters are moving overseas for cosmetics, as the prices here are outrageous.

    I am already sick of the election. I know who I will be voting for, and it is neither of the major parties.

    I would love to hear your spin on it though. I may or may not agree with it but you have a great way with words and I like to hear other people's views.

    1. Thanks, C! WIll have a think but really, I think it's down to a popularity contest this year. If the ALP win on the back of their bringing back Mr Rudd, it's going to be a joke.

  4. Oh price drops are always a good thing! :)

    I just took your word for it about the election too - they'd been talking enough about it for it to have been true! And it was! haha.

    Hope your cold clears up soon :)

  5. ACEEE about the price drops.

    I'm not eligible to vote but seriously.. Abbott?
