With 2019 just ending (I say just ending, what I really mean is like 3 months ago!) – I thought I would round up the year with some of my favourite purchases as it’s been months since I last properly did any sort of blog post. I kind of just lost my passion for everything and turned into a potato basically. But like everyone does at the start of the new year (why we need to wait till the start of a new year to do this baffles me), I set myself goals and what I want to achieve. One of my main goals is to put as much as I can into my blog and see if I can enjoy it again, if it fizzles out then it wasn’t meant to be and maybe I just didn’t focus hard enough on it. So with that being said, here’s the first blog post of the year and hopefully there is many to follow…….
2019 has been a huge year for myself in terms of my home interiors and I’ve truly found something that I love. So with that, the majority of my favourite purchases are home related and the first major item that has transformed my home is my gorgeous mirrored dressing table. This was my first purchase I aimed to get in 2019 and by February I had my dream unit and I don’t know what I would have done without this item. Not only has it transformed my room (if you follow my Instagram you’ll see I’m obsessed as It’s in almost every post) but the amount of storage I can hold inside has finally given me the space I need for all my skin care products and hair care.
My next favourite item which is as featured above. It’s the beautiful foot stool from Ellies finishing touches. I will attach the one which I purchased below as there are several ones to choose from. This again was one of the first purchases of the year and its been a huge feature on my instagram page as I have used this throughout my home as it goes perfectly in every room. Hugo even uses this as a bed sometimes when we are in the living room watching a film. I also found that this was the most reasonably priced one I could find as I looked around for a while as I like to make sure that when I’m spending my money it’s invested in the perfect product.
One of the key home items I stumbled across this year was this marble side table. I was seeing everyone posting pictures of these gorgeous tables and I came across mine in TKMaxx and there is such a huge variety to choose from. I was torn between the all white gloss or the marble and since my home is mainly white interiors I thought I should introduce the marble to break up all the white. This retails at about £35 at the time I purchased mine. It’s so handy when you’re in the living room and you can leave the remotes on there and even snacks. Perfect for interiors but also handy for everyday use.
I only received this bag at Christmas off my amazing James!! I have been dreaming of this Chloe Faye bag for years and the fact I finally own my dream bag blows my mind. Honestly the boy did GOOD!!!!! Now I never wanted James to spend this much money on me but this is what he choose as he knew I had wanted this bag for so long. Chloe for me is one of favourite designer brands, I find everything so elegant and for me the colours are always the shades I tend to go for. This bag is actually massive inside and has plently of storage which is always needed as I always carry so much when we go out. I have only used this bag 3 times so far as I get so scared when using new handbags that it takes me a while to actually start using them properly. But I am so excited to to be going into 2020 with this gorgeous bag!
Lastly, my new ultimate favourite monthly gift is Glossy Box. Now I started when they released the incredible Halloween campaign which was angel vs devil and that honestly just drawn me in. I have seen many Instagramers and youtubers post about Glossy Box and I never understood the hype. However, I pay a small supscription cost monthly and in return I get a gorgeous box filled with products. Every month is different and it’s lovely to have a surprise and to try out new products that I probably would never look twice at because I usually stick to the same skin care products usually. So there’s nothing better than getting home from work and receiving my monthly box.
I had so many more products that I fell in love with in 2019 but I honestly would have been here forever writing down everything. So I managed to pick a small amount of my most loved items of the year. I wonder what my favourite purchases will be this year…..
