Having a slightly boring March (in terms of new purchases), I gave it a miss. Last month I bought a few items that I think are worth discussing however, so I’m going full steam ahead with my New Purchases Show & Tell April 2019.
It’s been a bit of a weird month. This time last year was all about stocking up on holiday purchases, before our big holiday in Florida. Whereas this year, our Las Vegas and New York holiday seems long gone.
So, sadly I don’t have any exciting travel buys this month, instead I have some everyday items (which are easier and cheaper to be inspired by!).

Mac Lipstick Trio (Velvet Teddy, See Sheer, Brick-o-la)
It’s been a while since I’ve bought any new lipsticks, so I went all in with this Mac lipstick trio. To be honest, it was See Sheer that attracted me to this set the most, despite not hearing of it before. Velvet Teddy sealed the deal (as it’s so hyped and I hadn’t tried it yet). But it was Brick-o-la, another shade I hadn’t heard of, that turned out to be my favourite in terms of colour pay off and texture. Velvet Teddy is my least favourite, controversially.
& Other Stories Striped Top
Shock, horror; this was my first ever purchases from & Other Stories. I discovered the brand through countless influencer’s outfit photos, but sadly discovered they might not be a brand for me. If only because I’m short, and their clothes are too tall for me. I can still get away with their tops however, as this one fits perfectly!
TopShop Petite Mom Jeans
I was in desperate need of some new jeans. I ordered a few skinny fit jeans, my go-to, but scrolled onto a pair of Mom jeans too. I’m a bit late to the party but my god these jeans are so comfy. I sent every skinny fit pair back! This is big news. I might be over skinny jeans. (Okay maybe not just yet.) I do need to style Mom jeans differently in terms of which shoes to pair with them however, and this is bound to inspire more purchases…
Well I can’t say there’ll definitely be a post next month. I’ve decided that I’ll only share these type of ‘New Purchases’ posts when I have some buys worth showing off. I’ve realised over the past year that this hasn’t been the case every month, which has resulted in me occasionally getting bored of the series.
So this isn’t an end to the series, it’s just a re-assessment instead. Saying that though, I’m pretty sure I have a few things saved in various wishlists that I intend to buy in May. First things first, I need some shoes for my Mom jeans…
