Forgive me for the following click baity sentence to open this post, but, I think I’ve bought THE BEST purchase I’ve made so far this year!
It’s another purchase getting me excited and ready for summer! (Although I know that statement is a little premature; it’s freezing right now in England.)
Instead of relying on the weather though, because there’s no guarantee of clear blue skies even in June (oops there’s a clue!), it’s more the memory and smiles it’ll leave behind that I’m most looking forward to…
I can’t contain it much longer, watch my video or read below to find out!
New Purchases Show & Tell April 2017
Glastonbury Festival 2017 tickets! – 13 seconds in
THIS is the purchase I’m talking about! When tickets first went on sale last October and myself and my friends unfortunately lucked out, I started to worry this might actually be the year we don’t make it to Glastonbury. But with a lot of determination (and tapping the refresh button to an inch of its life!) we gave it another shot in the resale and GOT THEM! I am SO excited, Glastonbury related content may be on the agenda in the next few weeks…
GHD Curve Soft Curl Tong – 1:07 minutes in
I’m also really excited about this purchase. I’ve been wanting to create that Pinterest worthy hair for a long time and the cheap curling tongs I already had just weren’t cutting it. Based on the success of my GHD straighteners (that are still going strong after 7 years…) I splashed out on one of the brand’s curling tongs. So far, so good. Watch this space for hair tutorials and my full review!
TOPSHOP Petite Embroidered Body – 2:04 minutes in
Looking at this yes I know I may be betting on a good summer, but I couldn’t let this slip away to the dreaded ‘out of stock’ status while I sat around waiting for sunshine. I’m glad I whipped it up when I did too, as it’s no longer available in TopShop’s Petite range. When the suns does eventually come out, I’ll happily be pairing this with my Ray-Ban’s.
Clarins Paris Everlasting Foundation – 2:41 minutes in
I hit empty on my last foundation, on the day of a friend’s wedding no less! A dire situation indeed, so I hurried to the nearest beauty counter I could to replace it. This is my first ever full coverage foundation, which I’ve avoided until now. I guess I was a bit scared of it looking weird on me, a bit caked on like a china doll? I don’t go full air hostess mode but I’m starting to come round to a full coverage look.
Freedom Finer Ring Set – 3:28 minutes in
I really thought I’d seen this before, with the amount of times I snoop around TopShop. But nope, this must have slipped my usual reconnaissance! I love jewellery that’s more delicate and dainty so I had to buy these when I saw them. I’ll also be keeping a check at the Freedom stand for other finer jewellery.
The People v O.J. Simpson – 3:55 minutes in
I can’t get my mind off this case. I heard this was a great series to watch and boy has it sucked me in! I’ve even got myself and my boyfriend watching the mammoth documentary series O.J.: Made in America – seriously, we’re hooked. Going back to the People v O.J. Simpson on Netflix though, there’s a brilliant A-list cast who act out this unbelievable story. It’s incredible!
As you can probably guess, there’ll be a few Glastonbury bits to add to my list. Like one of the essentials for Glastonbury is of course a sturdy pair of wellies! Mine have seen the last two Glastonbury’s, along with other festivals before that and so it might be time to buy a newer pair. (Should I go Hunter’s? Leave your comments or suggestions below!)
I have not been asked, sponsored or paid to review any of these products. I just like to shop!
