I’ll be honest, I didn’t really know what to call this post – it’s sort of a ‘hey these are my recent purchases and I’m going to tell you about them’, but that sounds a bit show-off doesn’t it? Show off in the way that makes me feel like a bratty kid that everyone secretly wishes to punch in the face.
I really hope you don’t all want to punch me in the face.
Let’s not beat around the bush here, January is a bit shit isn’t it? It’s a 5 week pay month, everyone’s doing dry jan, and despite wanting to do ALL the sale shopping to ease the blues, my bank account aint having any of it. In hindsight it’s probably not the best month to do a ‘recent purchases’ post like this, and tbh it is a bit scarce, but I suppose you’d all want to punch me even more if this was a massive haul. (JK, please don’t punch me).
First of all can we start with this BEAUT Rifle Paper Co. Agenda? JUST LOOK AT IT, (link here). I love the cover and how much it’ll compliment my attempt at an insta feed, but I also love the design of the pages inside. I’m extremely fussy when it comes to planner designs, and this is classy, minimal, yet has everything I need.
Pssst – follow me on Instagram here if you so wish.
I’ve also been loving the new workout range from Primark. There’s so much of it, and it’s all bright, bold, exciting and cheap. And lets be honest, what more do we need in life? I treated myself to a few bits literally days into January like the biggest cliche, and I swear I saw the woman behind the till do an eye roll. I’ve been wearing it to the gym and so far, so good. It keeps me cool, washes well, and isn’t see through. Sorted. Talking of primark, their lingerie sets are just gorgeous at the moment, they’ve seriously upped their game. I picked up the set photographed when I was last in store for around £12, and I’m seriously debating whether to go back and buy all the other colours.
Technically a Christmas present, I was given my secret santa gift on NYE – a Soap & Glory gift set containing some lippy, a perfume, a nail varnish, and the standout product for me… the Love At First Blush blusher. I’ve fallen head over heels with it, it’s glowy, it’s got a good pigment. As in, you can see it and it looks gorgeous, but it’s not SO pigmented that I accidentally apply too much and look like a clown. I’m obsessed.
Quite a random one, but since I discovered Lenor Unstoppables through my friend at work, I can’t stop raving about them. They smell absolutely gorgeous and make your clothes smell DIVINE for literally weeks after you’ve washed them. And maybe it’s a sign I’m really old and boring and irrelevant now, but nice smelling clothes legit improve my quality of life.
Not exactly new, but a product I’ve only recently got into properly, is the Schwarzkopf Got2B All Star 10 in 1 Styling Treatment. It’s a product you put onto damp hair before drying, and I genuinely don’t know how I lived without it for so long. It leaves my hair soft, bouncy and with volume but reduces frizz – which for me and my frizzy head is the absolute dream.
So those are my recent purchases, like I said, there isn’t tons because hello how much spare cash does anyone have in January??? Tell me what you’ve been buying recently! Have you discovered any new must haves?
