I'll beat you to the punch. Yes, I'm really into burgundy clothing at the moment! Bardot has (had? I don't know anymore as I bought this stuff about two months ago!) some really gorgeous burgundy pieces, so I picked up this sleeveless collared shirt, which is longer at the back, and some jeans. I had been after a sleeveless shirt for so long and this was the perfect colour too! I can wear it tucked into skirts or with leggings because of the dipped back. I'm so happy with it. I couldn't decided whether I wanted the Bardot burgundy jeans or frayed shorts (Lord knows I didn't need both!), but in the end, I went with the jeans because I already own too many pairs of shorts. I was early to my shift for work one day, so I decided to browse around General Pants Co. and I spotted this really interesting singlet with a cut out back. Of course, I was attracted to the colour and I decided to buy it since it was on sale. It's so rare for me to find things I like on sale.
When I made the Bardot purchases, I also bought these gorgeous stone rings and earrings. I love turquoise jewellery and coral/red colours are a favourite of mine too, as I think they suit my skintone. I'm not a huge earring person, but I couldn't resist these. I made an online purchase at Love Hearts and Crosses when I saw LLYMLRS wearing the Arrow Head Necklace. I think it's got that 'punk' vibe to it and I'm really into that style. While browsing the website, I also came across this pretty filigree ring, so I bought it too because what's the point of making an online purchase for only one item?
In beauty products, I picked up a new cleanser and a few hair care products. I've been using Philosophy's On A Clear Day foaming cleanser for a while now and while it's nothing amazing, my skin hasn't broken out from it. It can feel a little drying, but it's nothing moisturiser won't help. Would I purchase this again? Probably not. I think I've use more impressive cleansers in the past. My hair has been in such an awful state lately - it's been really dry and it doesn't help that my hair is thick and coarse either. I've had good results with Bumble and Bumble hair masques before, so I decided to buy the Quenching one, which smells so fruity and creamy delicious! Now that I have Redken shampoo back in my life, I'm starting to wonder what on earth made me stray away from it. Everyone raves on about Redken, but it's no exaggeration because their products really are amazing! I couldn't even get through my Label M shampoo and conditioner because it was irritating me how little it did to help my hair. From one use of Redken's Smooth Down range, I already felt the difference! Instead of buying the Smooth Down conditioner, I got suggested to buy the Butter Treat, since my hair is so dry. It's probably redundant using two hair masks, but whatever, I'm at least I'm seeing results! Since my hair is thick, I don't have to worried about it feeling weighed down either. I also bought the Iron Silk spray, since I needed a new heat protectant spray. It reaks of alcohol, which is a little worrying though because doesn't that cause more heat? I never notice a difference in my hair from using heat protectants, but I use them to be on the safe side.
