As a self confessed shopaholic, I’ve decided to start a new series here on the blog called ‘Shopaholic Sunday’, where on the last Sunday of every month I do a massive haul of all my favourite items I picked up that month.
We’re coming to the end of Feb now, so today I will be sharing with you all my favourite things I have purchased this month and there have been quiteeee a few.
Starting with my Burberry boots, which I kind of shouldn’t include because technically I bought these in January but I’m going to include them anyway because hello?! Burberry! I had my eye on the flat version of these boots for literally months before finally taking the plunge and heading to a Burberry store to purchase them, however when I tried them on I wasn’t so keen. Then I saw the heeled ones, which are the ones I ended up buying, as once I’d tried them on and had a walk about in them I was in love!! These are the perfect boots and are probably now the nicest shoes I own!! These boots can be paired with everything, from leggings to skirts to pretty little dresses, I virtually live in these boots now. Decorated with the classic Burberry pattern, I feel so amazing every time I wear them! I couldn’t be happier and I’m so pleased I decided to buy these.
Now onto what I bought this month…
I picked up quite a few clothing pieces this month, including a gorgeous black pleather skirt with floral pattern from Zara, a beaut simple black playsuit with pom pom detail from ASOS and my personal favourite – a gorgeous golden velvet floaty crop top from ASOS, when I wear this I feel like Belle from Beauty and the Beast, it’s so beautiful! It’s funny because this top is one I ordered randomly and wasn’t overly excited about purchasing, a take it or leave it kind of thing, but now I’ve got it I’m in love and want to wear it every day.
I love skincare, so this month I made sure to pick up lots of new products to try including the L’Oreal Pure Clay Purity Wash and Detox Wash, a L’Oreal Triple Active day cream and a NO7 Beautiful Skin night cream. I’m going to do a skincare routine post soon featuring these products so I won’t ramble on too much about them, but I am really pleased with all of these skincare products.
This month I finally bought the ‘Ablaze‘ eyeshadow palette from Smashbox which is one I’ve had my eye on since it came out. This is now probably the coolest eyeshadow palette I own. The shades included are the best for a dramatic, smoky, fiery look including a gorgeous bold red and a pretty golden orange.
I also bought a new lipstick from Max Factor in the shade ‘Blush‘, this lipstick is from Max Factor’s new full matte range and I’m in love. Blush is a gorgeous deep yet bright pink shade and really brightens up my face when I wear it. Not only is the colour of this lipstick so nice, but the texture is lush too, being a full matte but still moisturising. What more could a gal want?
Now it wouldn’t be a haul without some Lush products thrown in would it? As always, I spent a small fortune on Lush products this month and again, there will be a seperate haul on all the Lush goodies I bought coming soon so I’m just going to share a picture here of the two Unicorn Horn bubble bars I purchased! You’ll have to keep a look out for my next haul to see what else I got. 😉
Onto books – I bought two books this month! The first one being ‘The Wish List’ by Jane Costello, one of my favourite authors. I’ve already finished this book because I enjoyed it so much I couldn’t put it down, I was reading it before bed and whilst on my lunch breaks at work!
I also picked up a copy of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, as I really want to read more classics and be a proper literature buff. I have actually started reading this book before through an app on my phone, but I’d always get a couple of chapters in then have to delete the app due to low storage space (lol). I prefer hard back copies of books to ebooks anyway, so I’m pleased to finally have a proper copy of this story and I am so excited to read it, I have a feeling it’s going to be a good’un.
I bought some amazing things this month and I am so happy with all my purchases. I am just loving all my new clothes, my wardrobe is on fleek right now. Obviously the Burberry boots have to be my favourite purchase of them all, but really I’m a lucky gal and happy with everything!
