New post: New Purchases Show & Tell April 2018. Wait a minute, April? Yes, judge me, I struggled keeping to time with my blog posts recently, I’d judge me too. Ever since mid-April hit, I’ve been counting down to a BIG holiday. All of my focus (and money) was spent on preparing for said BIG holiday, so much so that I fell behind on many blog posts (and here’s the start of the backlog).
I need to get this over and done with, so if you haven’t caught up with my New Purchases Show & Tell April 2018 video (it’s below for you to watch) then here it is in written form. Let’s just dive straight in…
New Purchases Show & Tell April 2018 video
IT Luggage 4 wheel suitcase – 22 seconds in
I described this in my video as “probably the coolest suitcase, ever”. An overstatement? Maybe, but I’m seriously impressed with it. The thought has never occurred to me that the weight of my suitcase eats into my weight allowance. What makes this suitcase so cool is that it weighs NOTHING. (Okay obviously it weighs something…) But, I can actually lift this with one finger it’s so light. ONE FINGER!
TOMS Lexie Sandals – 1:01 minutes in
For my big holiday, I wanted to get some shoes that were comfortable in hot weather and practical for a lot of walking/standing. (A bit of a clue of where I might be going, but not much of one to be honest.) Toms are super comfy anyway so I’ve invested in some of their flat Lexie sandals. I’ll let you know how I get on with them…
ASOS Mono Spot Bikini – 1:37 minutes in
Are you surprised to see a bikini in my new purchases when I’m about to embark on a BIG holiday? You shouldn’t be. Inthefrow is to blame, if anyone is. I loved the print of this cheap bikini in her recent swimwear haul and had to have a slice of the action myself. (That sounds weird, I meant I just really liked the bikini, so I bought it.)
Clinque Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm – 2:32 minutes in
Just a quick break from holiday purchases, for a moment. I was trying out a new cleanser that was breaking me out BIG TIME. So I was on the look out for another and bought Clinque’s Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm in the sale at World Duty Free (as I work near to a store). If your skin breaks out with harsh cleansers and prefers something more gentle, you should *honestly* give this a try.
Caudalie Tinted Moisturiser – 2:58 minutes in
This was a Birchbox discovery from long ago (cringes at the video) and become my favourite ever tinted moisturiser. Again, I’d been testing out a few overs, but I’ve gone straight back to this little beauty. It gives a good coverage for just a tinted moisturiser, which is kind of matte with the slightest glow (seriously just the slightest, though). Perfect for summer.
GoPro Shorty Mini Extension – 3:16 minutes in
VERY last minute purchase (along with the next) before my flight, but the panic of knowing if I had all the GoPro accessories I might need was real. (As I’m a GoPro owner now guys, since Christmas.) This little gadget was expensive (it’s GoPro branded) but I liked how I get two products in one – an extension pole and mini tripod.
GoPro Chest Mount Harness + Head Mount Strap – 3:49 minutes in
I couldn’t afford anymore GoPro branded accessories, so I bought a chest mount harness and head mount strap in one, with a lesser known brand. There were plenty of good reviews on Amazon, and having used non-GoPro branded accessories before, I’m sure this will do just fine.
Next month, which is now at the time of posting, may have some holiday overspill (just to warn you now). But I would have already travelled to and returned from my BIG holiday when it comes to the time of posting it, which is a depressing thought. So there’s a chance a few holiday buys might make the list too.
Of course summer is ahead (or supposed to be) and I need to get a move on and actually make some preparations to tick off my ‘host a BBQ’ goal in my 30 before 30 list…
I have not been asked, sponsored or paid to review any of these products. I just like to shop!
