Favourite new buys on a budget

Have you noticed that we go through stages of having a favourite colour?

My fave colour when I had just started school was yellow.

It quickly turned to pink. By high school I I wanted purple everything *shudder*

Once I got out into the real world it was emerald blue – this may have had something to do with my love for Kate Middleton.

And then for the past 5 years, I’ve noticed I gravitate towards green. Mostly jade green.

Which explains my last two purchases:

I finally bought a slip dress. This was found at Tempt (sadly no online presence) and a steal at $25

Can’t wait for a date night to wear thisย one out to.

This will also work in the day time with a plain white tshirt underneath. Think the 90s.

I also bought a multi-pack of rings from Lovisa on sale for $6, but this one is my fave from the bunch.

Love the whole antique look about it.

And I bought some other things which weren’t green:

The Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation which I picked up at 25% off in Priceline. Yep. Still loving this one.

I had to go to 2 different stores to get my right shade (beige) cos this range is so popular, whether it’s on sale or not!

I also picked up a Sephora Sleeping Mask in Pearl. I love the way my skin just drinks this up overnight. It’s great for when you have a big day ahead of you and want to start it fresh faced.

I simply massage the gel onto my face before I sleep after following my usual evening routine.

These are available in several different types, i.e Green Tea, Honey, Rose and they allย carry different promises. They sell for $5 and I get at least 3-4 uses out of each satchet.

Is your whole wardrobe one colour at the moment? Have you bought anything new lately?

  1. I loved purple as a kid too. EVERYTHING! ๐Ÿ˜†
    I love that green slip dress. Looks so comfy and sleek. I totally get a 90s vibe with that dress!
    Oh it’s good to know one of those Sephora sleeping masks yield multiple uses. I always thought they were single use products and balked at the $5 price point.
    I’ve been buying a lot of post-Christmas stuff… haha, I’ll post them next week. I did score a few jeggings last weekend for 60% off at $20 each which I thought were a good deal.

    1. Hahaha. Now I kind of cringe at purple. Glad I wasn’t the only one that went through that phase ๐Ÿ˜›
      Thanks the dress is like a satiny/velvet feel type material. Super soft.
      Yep I get at least 3 uses out of the mask so it’s worth the $5 price tag. Good for travelling with as well.
      That’s a major score! 60% off is huge! What a bargain ๐Ÿ˜€
