Over the past 6 months, I’ve shopped much less than I would have if it hadn’t been for the pandemic. During the lockdown that started in March 2020, I didn’t make any clothing orders. Even after the restrictions were eased I still wasn’t shopping online. It wasn’t until the last week of August that I went into the city centre to browse for clothes instore and I still didn’t purchase anything.
The reason for this change in my shopping habits was the fact that I was rarely leaving my house and whenever I did I was pretty much just alternating between 2 outfits. Buying clothes felt unnecessary so I just didn’t do it.
The things I’ve purchased over the past 6 months have mainly been intentional and thoughtful purchases.
If you’ve been reading this blog since I started it in 2017 or follow me on Instagram you’ll know that I regularly write about and share products from this brand. When I found out Bloomtown were releasing Deodorants I knew I had to try them out.
I’ve tried natural deodorants in the past but one didn’t really seem to do anything and the other brought me out in an awful rash because of the bicarbonate soda.
This deodorant is lavender and rose geranium scented. I like that it’s not too overpowering. It also comes scent free. The deodorant works really well for me and will definitely be something I repurchase.
I heart revolution lip gloss
A few years ago I was all about matte lips but I’m now a lover of lip gloss. I have a clear lip gloss that I love wearing but I decided to try a couple of coloured ones. I’m not someone that wears much makeup and I’m fairly lazy so I like products with minimal maintenance. I wear the lighter colour with a mauve toned lipliner and I love how it looks. The darker shade is good mixed with the lighter one, over my other lipsticks and also on it’s own.
Estee Lauder Modern Muse Chic
I had a sample of this perfume years ago and really liked the scent but never got around to buying the full-size bottle. I’ve always been someone that used scented oils instead of perfume so I was in no rush to purchase it.
However, I ended up buying this perfume during lockdown because I found it on sale for a pretty good price. It is described as ‘A bold contrast of vivid florals and sensual ebony woods.’ and it’s a perfect evening scent.
When I first started writing this post the lockdown restrictions were easing in England, it’s taken me so long to get back to blogging that England is now going into a second lockdown!
