While others are busy gushing over their Christmas presents I’ve decided to show you the things I got for myself this month that aren’t THRIFTED and hopefully they are the last set of things I buy because January usually has about 368days and I’ve got to have a bank account set and ready for the very long month ahead.
To be honest, I actually can’t wait till I’m rich enough not to care and just sit in my house to do all my shopping.
These three bags right here are the major reason why I hardly patronize Instagram online stores. I got all three for 9,000naira and I’m still in disbelief of it. I’ve always wanted to update my bag collection to be more ladylike but I couldn’t bring myself to buying a mini bag for between 7,000 – 10,000naira with my student budget but on my way to the famous lekki art and craft market to get myself the IT bag of 2017 which is the ‘basket bag’ before the year runs out I found a vendor that sold me this Gucci inspired bag and Chloe inspired bag for 4,000naira each. Not to talk of how the basket bags usually cost about 5,00naira and above but I got this for way lesser. This isn’t even me saying online stores are rip offs or anything like that, I guess I’m really just a cheapskate that likes the finer things of life but will only get them at a bargain or reasonable price. To be honest, I actually can’t wait till I’m rich enough not to care and just sit in my house to do all my shopping.
the key to a good makeup look is the base…
I’m that girl that hardly invests in beauty products, I’d rather spend money on skincare than makeup because I absolutely suck at doing my makeup and I’ve always felt it’s a waste of money to buy products I would end up not using until recently I’ve realized that the key to a good makeup look is the base and as my AMAZING Cover girl foundation is almost empty, I decided to get the Maybelline Fit Me as recommended for my oily skin by youtubers and the trusty vendor I got this from. Although I was really shocked it’s so small (30ml), I really hope I get a lot of use out of it enough to justify spending 5,500naira on a bottle of foundation. (If you’d like me to do a first impression review of this product, do let me know in the comment section)
I’m not sure how well you’d like this post as it’s my first haul of items that are not thrifted as that’s what you’re used to but I hope you like the items as much as I do and if you like any of them I’ve included shopping links below :
