September Haul

Sunday, 04 October 2020


Disclosure: Pictures in this post are from the shops’ websites.

Christmas time is approaching and a lot of expenses with it. I already pre-booked two Beauty Advent Calendars, around £80 each, and I a, sure I will buy at least one more. I can’t travel home this year because of the restrictions but I will buy and post Christmas presents. That is the reason this month I didn’t buy any makeup or skincare. I can’t believe…….

However, sometimes we need to renew our wardrobes and that is what I did this month. I didn’t spend too much, I bought in some very cheap online shops. I prefer to have lots of clothes than very good quality clothes. I don’t mean that the clothes I bought are not good quality, I already got two of the orders and quality is good for the price.

Shein Order

I heard about Shein plenty of times but it is the first time I bought here. Prices are good, there is a huge amount of sizes available and there is even a curvy girl section in that shop. I still don’t need that, but it is good to know as my weight doesn’t stop to increase.

I bought a dress and two skirts. The dress is a black floral boho dress, with V neckline and short, butterfly sleeves. It is more for summer but I think I will wear it with a T-shirt underneath. Price is £11.49 but it was reduced to £6.49

 One of the skirts is a red boho short skirt with plants prints. It is a flared skirt with a paper bag type waist. The other skirt is also a short casual skirt, printed over green with paper bag waist also. I find that is the best waist type in case you change your weight, and I am trying to lose a few stones. I paid £5.49 for the red and £4.49 for the green one.

Everything5Pounds Order

First time I heard about this shop was with a video by Roxxsaurus. I became impressed with the shop and decided to give a try. As per the name, in this shop, all is £5 or even less if the item is reduced. Amazing, isn’t is?

I bought a cardigan in yellow. It is a multi-strip knitted cardigan very soft with front button fastening. I think that can match well with any pair of jeans.

I also bought a knitted colour-block jumper, with very bright colours. I don’t like to wear dark colours in winter. It feels ad the cardigan and should be nice also with jeans.

I want to increase the number of dresses I have and I bought another dress here. It is a V neck dress in red. It is not too short, embroidered around the neck and with long elasticated sleeves. It is quite small, but the problem is that you should pay the postage for returning, and because I paid £5 for the dress there is no point of paying more for the return. If I lose a couple of kilos it will fit me.

Airydress Order

The last order I placed was in Airydress and I am still waiting for it. I discovered that shop using Google and decided to try. Prices are very good and I wanted to see the quality of the clothes and how they work, so I place a small order.

I ordered a casual long sleeves sweater in pink. It has V-neckline and looks very soft. It is available in a few colours but I don’t have anything pink. Price was  £25.74 but it was reduced to £7.01.

The other sweater is some sort of boho style. Looks like if you were wearing three sweaters, one on top of the other. It is long sleeve with buttoned V-neckline. That sweater was originally £32.76 but I paid £9.35 for it.

Finally, I bought another dress. This time is a casual floral tunic, with long sleeves and embroidered V-neckline. It is neither too long nor too short, just above the knees and the main colour is black. Price is £8.57.

 

That is all for this month. Did you know these shops? What is your experience?

 

I love beauty and skincare, try new products, and share my opinion with you. All my knowledge comes from years of experience and reading articles. I have dry skin, Fitzpatrick type IV, warm undertone, and my main concern is hyperpigmentation. Keep in mind that what works for me may not work for you.
