#3 What Did I Buy This Month? - January


If I were to sum January up in one word, it would be... stressful. I had a bit of a meltdown at the start and pretty much just gave up on things, something that seems to happen to me a lot. I need change, this change hopefully being university in September. I've started to receive offers from universities, so far from the University of Nottingham, Newcastle University, and Bournemouth University, but I know there's only one university I really want to go to. Please have your fingers, eyes, heart, toes, arms and anything else that you can possibly cross for me guys! On a more positive note, I had great fun in London for my best bud Allie's birthday at the Ice Bar, I highly recommend checking it out if you haven't been before.

Eylure Naturalite Lashes 107: I have to admit, I've only worn fake eyelashes a couple of times, and I'm completely useless at applying them myself, but I really want to teach myself so I invested in some.
Simple Soothing Facial Toner: A re-purchase, all that I need from a toner.
La Roche-Possay Effaclar Duo: Wow, this product has received a huge amount of attention across blogs and Youtube recently. I've had problem skin for a long time and couldn't resist giving this a go.
Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner Pen: Another product that's been praised by bloggers, I really wasn't getting on with my gel eyeliner so it was the perfect opportunity to buy and try.


Q&A A Day Five Year Journal: After seeing this unique diary over on Sophia's blog I just had to get myself one. I love the idea of looking back on my answers after five years and seeing how much I've grown and changed as a person. I thought I would be perfect for the next five years especially as I'm finishing A Levels, going to university and will then be in the big wide world.
Jillian Michaels The Collection: If you've read my 2013 blogging, beauty and lifestyle resolutions post you will know that one was to get fit and lose some weight. I've never really fancied the idea of going to the gym or going for a run, I'm a little too self conscious to exercise in public so workout DVD's seemed to be the next best option. The 30 Day Shred is a killer, I wanted to kill Jillian.


New Look Brown Double Buckle Ankle Boots: Having really awkward shaped feet, and a very fussy mindset when it comes to shoes resulted in me spending the whole of Autumn and Winter in dolly shoes. I finally found this pair on a trip to London, I love the simple design and they were a bargain at £19.99.

I'm hoping February will be a better month than January. I've been trying very hard to motivate myself to get back on track with college, and it's working so far. I just need to remember it's only four months until the summer, and then I have fourteen weeks of freedom to look forward to and university at the end of it!

What have you treated yourself to this month?
