Window Shopping Wednesday #4

Happy hump day boys and girls! It’s a de facto Thursday for me, as we have Friday off to make our way over to lovely Belfast for the weekend. Cannot wait!

This week’s Window Shopping Wednesday has a bit of a pink and hearts theme to it…. it is Valentine’s day on Saturday I guess, so the shops are full of that sort of thing! I’ll be painting my nails a glorious rouge and packing the Kate Moss lipstick to celebrate 🙂

Top picks of the week…..the Clarins face treatment oil, which I shall be purchasing on Friday with this month’s lovely wages, and the gorgeously different Sophia Webster shoes…. which I shall not be purchasing with any sole month’s wages. I think that’s a few month’s worth of saving in them there heels!

Window Shopping Wednesday #3

Morning everyone! Happy middle of the week 🙂 Today’s Window Shopping Wednesday selection has a little bit of spring creeping through – just as the temperature has hit a bit of a downward dip, bbrrrr.

The jumper is a little nod to that quiet and unassuming day of amour that’s coming up next week! The shoes are from Agnes and Norman’s S/S15 range, and I just love them. I have selected the Daily Microfoliant by Dermalogica as I am pretty impressed with the Dermal Clay Cleanser I bought last week – I’ve only been using it for 7 days but I can already see an improvement in my skin. Happy days! And the red lipstick is….well….just because, really. Who doesn’t want a red lipstick in their life?!

Have a lovely day whatever you may be doing 🙂

Window Shopping Wednesdays #2 …. on a Thursday

Well, I do recall saying when I wrote the first Window Shopping Wednesday post (all of last week) that I might slip a bit on deadlines…..and what do you know, here is #WSW2 on a Thursday! To be fair, yesterday was the nail art challenge so I’ll excuse myself for being a bit late 🙂

I am still impressed at my self resolve at avoiding spending as much (only 4 weeks in to the year though, so don’t get ahead of yourself Stephanie). However, of this week’s selection I have purchased 2 items…. the Dermalogica face wash, because my skin is an utter mess at the moment; and the King of Soho gin. Mmmm looking forward to trying that this weekend!

The make-up bag really made me giggle when I came across it; so I had to include it! The Living North subscription is something I have been thinking about for a couple of months – I buy the magazine pretty regularly (I love to pretend I am richer, more put-together and generally more sophisticated than I really am!) so it would be a sensible decision to make. Maybe next month….!

Window Shopping Wednesdays #1

I am a little bit of a shopping addict. I don’t generally go out and spend loads of money in a big spree, I’m more a little and often spender that doesn’t realise how much she’s spending…. the thing is though, it all tends to add up to quite a lot. Now that we have a wedding to save for (and it seems weddings are pretty damn expensive!) I’m trying to be really strict with myself and set a limit on how much I’m allowed to indulge on myself every month. After that I have to stop spending and think of the pretty white dress and the lovely shoes and the big big party next April!

I decided that if I’m not actually allowed to shop, I’m going to have to satisfy myself with window shopping instead 🙂 So, every Wednesday (I’ll apologise now if I miss a few deadlines!) I’ll share some pictures of and links to things I’ve been looking at/lusting after/generally obsessing about over the previous week. If nothing else, at least James can never say that he doesn’t know what to buy me 😉

Without further ado, here’s the first of my Window Shopping Wednesdays!
