Top Five Things that I WILL Buy This Year

Funnily enough with my new new budget I’ve already bought some of these things.

Okay, so I talk about wishlists and things that I really want to try but a lot of the time I change my mind. Things fall in and out of interest for me. I’m a very fluid person. I may love something one month and fall completely out of love with it the next. I’m a person with a budget so when I can’t immediately buy something I may forget the reasons I fell in love with it when I first set eyes on it! But, here is a little yearly wishlist of things that I WILL buy this year. It may not be straight away. It may be a little while, but I have set my gaze on them and they will be bought (when I can afford it!).

I had no idea what kind of picture to put here, so take this.

Yes To Moisturiser  (Bought, review coming!)

I’ve been obsessed with this line and it’s something that I can just pop down to the shops to get! I was really eager to try to Murad line but I just couldn’t justify the price. Yes To is affordable and works really well for me so far – I have the Yes To Tomatoes Pore Scrub and Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes. I’m just not yet sure weather to try the sensitive skin (cucumbers), tomatoes (acne prone) or the damaged skin (blueberries) because I have all of them!

Due West Cutoff Shorts by Nasty Gal (Bought, about ten minutes ago)

Firstly, I suck at purposely ripping things! When I wear my ripped stockings I usually get a lot of questions on how I ripped them so well, but you guys probably know that I like to leave them and let nature take it’s course! The perfect rip is the natural rip, so this explains why I can’t buy shorts to rip.

This leads us into the fact that I actually need some new shorts. My old trusty high waisted shorts
that I found in a thrift store were always a size or two too large. Tying a scrap of fabric around the belt buckles only helps for so long, since they start to stretch back to the far too big size. It’s about time I bought some shorts that actually fit!

Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer

I’ve heard great things about this BB Cream. I don’t want full coverage, I want something as natural as possible and I want something filled with quality that doesn’t break me out. That last one was one of the main reasons I want this primer. I’ve heard it does great things for acne prone skin. It may be a bit expensive but I rarely wear a skin base anyway.

Oh and I found somewhere that ships to Australia!

Jeffrey Campbell Niko Flats (Bought, about ten minutes ago)

You guys saw this a while ago on my summer flats post, when I asked you which you liked. While the majority of you guys didn’t like these, I fell in love. They’re my first Jeffrey Campbell shoes (and hopefully my last for a little while). As of recently they’re my only summer shoes (the replacement for my fallen apart house shoes has now become the falling apart house shoes that need replacing) but I’m not sure I can bring myself to actually wear t hem out in the dirt!

Black Gloss Stilleto Fake Nails

My nails suck. They grow really long when I don’t touch them or leave the house but in an active environment they break every five minutes. While I’m bad at painting them myself and rely on nail polish strips I’ve decided I want to try stronger, fake nails that I can reuse. I can’t wait for some pointy, gloss nails.

Do you have anything that you are determined to buy or to try this year?

    I really dig the Jeffrey Campbell flats, very cute! Good luck on your list, seems like very attainable items.

    I have been drooling over a pair a Underground ankle boots (aka winklepickers) and I found a holy grail on etsy and snatched them up. I think I need to stop buying shoes for a while…….just a little while 😉

    It's always nice to plan out what you will buy vs impulse buying!
