After breaking the bank this past Christmas, I told myself I was going to ban myself from shopping as much as possible. Well, that was a fail…as I should have expected. I can’t survive without spending money. It’s just not me. haha. 🙂 Here are a few things I’ve purchased recently:
Ray Ban Aviators – well, these were technically a Christmas gift…but I picked them out. I LOVE them. I’ve gone through about 4 pairs of cheap aviator sunglasses, so I wanted a nice pair that will hopefully LAST. I’m still afraid that they’ll break by just holding them the wrong way because they seem fragile!
Clarisonic Mia – I’ve heard a lot of good things about the this, but I wasn’t sure if I was ready to commit to the price of it! In fact, I went to the dermatologist first for a consultation about breakouts, and she immediately pushed prescriptions in my face without even really asking about my skincare routine. I wasn’t too crazy about that, but I tried the medicine regimen out for nearly a week before deciding that I didn’t want to put strong antibiotics in my body every day for months at a time. So I ditched the drugs and decided to purchase the Mia. I just started using it this week, but my skin is already noticeably smoother and brighter. The verdict is still out on if it will help get rid of breakouts!
Murad Live Clear Face Cleansing System – I’ve been using this for a few months, and it does help with breakouts…better than any other products I’ve tried. I still haven’t been able to get RID of breakouts, though, so I’m using the Clarisonic Mia in conjunction with this cleansing system. We’ll see if it works!
Moroccanoil – I also heard so many good things about this hair treatment that I decided to give it a shot. My hair tends to be dry or frizzy at times, probably because I continually damage it with flat irons and hair dryers! I really like it, and I think it’s helping my hair become healthier and more shiny. It hasn’t been a drastic change, but it does help, nonetheless!
Adrienne Vittadini Penn Ankle Boots – I have been wanting a pair of oxford ankle boots for a while now, and I kept searching in stores and online and couldn’t find what I wanted. I finally came across these Adrienne Vittadini boots on endless.com and I snatched them up because they were sold out everywhere else! I LOVE them. They’re cute, comfortable, and very versatile. I’ve been wearing them with jeans, tights, dresses, etc. Good investment. At least, that’s what I tell myself. 🙂
So, now that you know I epically failed at my “no-shopping” resolution, what have you purchased lately that you love???
