Wow September already! My little one is back to school so I’m glad to be getting back into a routine again. I’ve decided to take part in Girl Friday’s #SBBC (September Beauty Blog Challenge) This is the second one she has organised, I didn’t have the time to participate properly in the #JuneBBC but I’m hoping to this time. Plus I really need the distraction this month, this time last year my world got turned upside down and I’m still very hurt and still fighting for justice a year later. I have my ups and downs but I’m scared of how I’m going to feel this month as I don’t think/know if I’ve really dealt with what happen, I’m not sure I can or will, certainly not till I get some sort of justice
Anyway, sorry I’m rambling, the Girl Friday has put a lot of hard work into this challenge and has really made it easy by giving two options of topics each day! See the full list here.
So here are my recent buys! Finally says you haha!
These are some things I got for DD1 for starting back to school, obviously there was a lot more but just thought I’d show ye a few of the bits. I got her shoes from Shoe Zone like I always do, they are very sturdy and these ones were reduced to just €10 from about €15 as it was so close to school starting. Even when they are not on sale they are still such good value for money. I don’t bother buying her expensive shoes as she scuffs them all within a week and the soles destructed on them haha! These are a bit big for her yet but I’m thinking ahead! 🙂
The pink pimsolls were reduced to €2 from €4 in Pennys, score!
The coat was €16 from Dunnes Stores, very pretty isn’t it? And pink of course 😉
The school bag was €16 from Heatons. It looks huge on her but they are all either the small preschool kind of bags of the big ones like this I couldn’t find any in between ones? :/
Yes…..they are scrunchies! But after seeing Karen of Lovely Girlie Bits Video – Confessions of Beauty blogger (watch it here) I couldn’t help myself, she reminded me how much I loved them haha! And one of them is in leopard print so I really couldn’t resist
I also got other bobbins and little clips which will all be lost in about a month of course ha!
And the earrings, they just caught my eye. All the above are from Pennys/Primark.
I needed a pair of strappy sandals for an event earlier this month and these beauts caught my eye in Heatons with all the sparkles and the gorgeous suede material! Just a pity they really hurt my feet because I’ve wide feet 🙁 But I’ll squeeze into them again and torture myself don’t you know just because they are so pretty! These were €21 or €22.
Lastly here is a dress I got for an event. I fell in love with the colour of this dress and the 20’s flapper girl feel to it. It’s a sort of turquoise/aqua green colour but not as dark as seen on the left side. It was only €24.99 from New Look. And I just seen they have it in purple online. Swoon!
Well, there’s all my recent buys. Not a beauty product in sight either which I’m very surprised at?!
Finally big thanks to Girl Friday for organizing this beauty blogger challenge. Also you don’t have to be a beauty blogger to join in though as a lot of the choices would suit any type of blogger.
Can’t wait to see everyone else’s posts.
Happy Sunday. Yaz xx
