Catch up & watch
It’s my first one of the year! My New Purchases Show & Tell January 2017 video and blog post in trying to start the year off right.
If you don’t know by now, I post a video and blog post every month showing and telling you all about my new purchases I bought that month.
I really want to make this series something good for this year, so watch on to see how I’ve started off this year.
New Purchases Show & Tell January 2017
Eve Lom Cleanser – 31 seconds in
This was my naughty little treat I bought at the very start of this year and probably my first proper high-end skincare product. I’d never usually spend anywhere close to £55 on a cleanser, but with a few Birchbox points saved up and Vogue once naming it “possibly the best cleanser in the world”; I was sold. It does indeed feel very luxurious and melts away like no other cleanser I’ve tried. My full and proper review to come soon.
Nike Woman’s Air Pegasus – 2:06 minutes in
This is NOT a New Year Resolution, new year new me, fitness thing, trust me! I’ve ran before and my now ex-running shoes are totally beat (if I can shamelessly pinch that Americanism.) I found going to a running shop to try on different fits and having my gait checked was so helpful. I recommend it to anyone who wants to start running, although I’m yet to properly go out for a run in these… When is the weather supposed to be clearing up again?
Moleskine Square Notebook – 3:43 minutes in
In all honesty, I vowed I’d start a bullet journal before it has seemingly exploded everywhere. Or has it just exploded for me since I started one? Who knows! Basically I can create my own diary system and there’s no real rules about how I should use it. For a project so big to keep me organised, I couldn’t resist buying a Moleskine notebook. The squared pages help me draw grids, boxes etc. (Read here and here for more Bullet Journal stuff!)
TopShop PETITE Spot Flute Sleeve Dress Dress – 4:50 minutes in
Being broke from Christmas and New Year didn’t stop me from buying some beautiful clothes! This is one of two dresses I had to have right away from when I first saw them pop up on the TopShop app. This one is actually a bit of a smock dress, which I’m really not used to but I’m slowly falling in love with. I can easily dress this up or down.
TopShop PETITE Peony Tie Sleeve Dress – 5:31 seconds in
THIS dress went straight into my online bag too, no questions asked. I think it’s such a beautiful mix of colours, with some other lovely features I didn’t get to show fully in the video. The dress has tie up sleeves, all the way down the arm, before blooming into a mental flute sleeve at the end. (Crazier than the flute sleeve to the previous dress – I never knew I would love these!) It also has a tie around the stomach, a slit in the back and a pretty white petticoat underneath I just love. My dream dress so far this year!
I’m yet to spend a Debenhams £50 voucher from Christmas. This will no doubt go on make up, there’s an Urban Decay in the Debenhams near me too so place your bets on it being an eyeshadow palette now…
Other than that, like I mentioned in the video I am all for suggestions and recommendations so please feel free to leave these in the comments section below!
I have not been asked, sponsored or paid to review any of these products. I just like to shop!
