Last month was a crazy month for me in the shopping department, I sure as heck treated myself a lot. Forget ‘treat yourself Tuesday’, I treated myself everyday.
The first couple of things I bought last month were dedicated to haircare. Since last year I’ve gradually been dying my hair blonder and blonder and I am just loving it. Recently my friend Emily recommended to me a couple of products which are designed to enhance the blondeness – John Frieda’s Sheer Blonde Colour Renew shampoo and PRO:VOKE Touch Of Silver hair toner. Whilst the shampoo I’ve been getting on with and would definitely buy again, what’s really impressed me is the hair toner which is amazing. I’ve only used Touch Of Silver three times since I bought it and from the first use I noticed such a difference in the colour of my hair, it looked a lot brighter and more blonde. I love using this hair toner!
I then picked up a Buddha statue from M&S which is something I’ve wanted for a long while. Buddha’s are supposed to bring good energy to the home and be good for the Feng Shui, so I’m enjoying having one in my living room.
One of my first real splurges of the month came when I was browsing the Ted Baker section of House Of Fraser and I fell in love with the most gorgeous skirt which is long, sassy and elegant. I just had to have it and I may have accidently picked up a pretty floral top to go with it…
After buying such a pretty new outfit, I obviously had to get a nice new bag to go with it. I picked up a brown shoulder strap bag from Accessorize which I really love, the main selling point for me was definitely the long shoulder strap which makes it so much more comfy to ‘hold’.
Thinking I was all shopped out, Emily and I decided to take a day trip to London last week where I full on intended to spend the bare minimum. Surprisingly enough this didn’t happen and I ended up spending way too much but when in London…
One of my favourite purchases from London has to be this ‘Fuck Off’ eye mask from Cyberdog which was just too brilliant not to buy.
From Urban Outfitters I picked up a really cool and quirky shell shaped drinking cup which although I wasn’t sure whether to buy at first, in the end I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t.
As if my Ted Baker outfit wasn’t enough I bought more clothes when Emily and I found ourselves in Bershka. I bought a few pretty tops including this gorgeous red low cut crop (which I also bought in baby pink) and a cute white slogan tee.
My last purchases from London are these amazing British Pandora charms, the Union Jack flag and Big Ben. I like my charm bracelet to be meaningful to me and to represent what I love and I love London so much, so I’m really pleased to have these two charms on my bracelet.
And finally my last purchase of the month, this gorgeous Disney canvas which says ‘All it takes is faith, trust and pixie dust’. This is from Clinton Cards and when I saw it I knew it would be so perfect for my bedroom!
I am so happy with everything I bought last month and I am so thankful I was able to treat myself so much.
This month I am trying to save more than spend, so wish me luck and we’ll see how I do in my next Shopaholic Sunday.
