Catch up & watch

It’s that time of the month again – you know, the time when I look back at what I’ve been buying (or wasting) my money on?

Well I’ve been buying a lot this month, so much in fact I’ve had to cut a few items out so I don’t bore you all with a massive blog post/video.

Watch my video below to reveal October’s New Purchases Show & Tell!

Missguided PETITE Ribbed 90s neck mini dress – 16 seconds in
I know, I know.  This is quite a risqué party dress for the shortness alone (even bought from the petite section too)!  Despite this and the fact the material was slightly transparent, I was still pretty happy with it for £15.  Although perhaps next time I should shop in the normal section if petite is too small on me?

ASOS PETITE Maxi Dress with 90s neck – 59 seconds in
Another bargain dress and nearly the exact opposite to the previous dress (it’s full length and a great opaque material)!  I whipped it up in the ASOS sale and I will definitely be having a go at a full length dresses again in the future.

Oasis Embroidered collar knit – 1:36 minutes in
Yes I’ve been back at Oasis again…  I’m a sucker for their shirt collar and knit tops at the moment!  As you might be able to tell, this dark burgundy red is one of my favourite colours too and along with the decorated collar, I couldn’t resist.

Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Setting Powder – 2:18 minutes in
I treated myself with some saved up Birchbox points this month and went for this as I know it’s so highly reviewed.  I never fussed round much with setting powders before as I didn’t see that much of a difference.  (Or the difference I did see was a cakey one!)  I’m pleased with this though as I can see it covers up flaws and smooths out skin, all quite light and naturally!  Very nice.

Barry M Illuminating Strobing cream – 3:04 minutes in
Yes I could have ordered it online, but for some reason I become addicted to the hunt every time I popped into Boots.  Yet every time I did, it was sold out.  Well it’s popular for a reason because so far I think it’s perfectly subtle and incredibly pretty.

Smashbox Studio Best Sellers (gift set) – 3:45 minutes in
What a bloody bargain!  I was looking to test out more Smashbox products and all the best sellers are here in one box for half the price.  I’m really looking forward to trying these out, let me know if you’d like to see a first impressions video!

Pretty Iconic by Sali Hughes – 4:48 minutes in
You may have already seen my The Delights at Stylist Live blog post, but if not how lucky am I to pick up Pretty Iconic a week before it’s release and have Sali sign it for me herself?  I’ve reserved a special place in my bookshelf for this one.

Anger is an Energy: My Life Uncensored by John Lydon – 5:19 minutes in
I’m a big fan of music biographies, but musician’s autobiographies are even better!  I originally bought this to match up the whole punk story with Vivienne Westwood’s memoir that I read earlier this year.  I soon found however that I really enjoyed John’s voice and his tales of life throughout.  Better than expected!

Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith – 6:00 minutes in
I’ve literally not been able to put this down.  A thriller set within a factually based Soviet Union Russia – what more could you ask for?  Well okay, not everyone’s cup of tea for a novel but certainly mine.  I can honestly say such a good read.  I’ve already given it 5 stars.

LALALAB Lalabox – 6:25 minutes in
You may remember me getting this offer in Birchbox UK Unboxing September 2016 and I couldn’t not take it up!  I love the polaroid format and although they’re digital prints I still reckon it’s a great idea.

My LALALAB referral code: PGY6G9WB
