Considering I’ve been waiting on my clothes to arrive via shipping container the whole month of January, I don’t have too many fashion faves from this month! 🙂 However, I still have a few pieces to share with y’all.
H&M Blazer // 99% of my blazers are from here! I think they are great quality and they have classic colors but also fun/trendy styles. I recently bought the houndstooth print and love it.
UGGS // Do people still think these are lame? I don’t even care because they are a must for me here! They are my go to since moving to Ireland and are the only shoes that keep my feet warm. I got mine years ago, but always see them on sale! *They always a few styles available online, so keep checking for your size if you want that bargain price!
Nike Hoodie // I had a gift card to Nike and wanted to get a plain black hoodie. I bought a men’s medium so I love how cozy it is. I also somehow didn’t own a black sweatshirt and now I wear it all the time!
Liquid Eyeliner // I either love or hate liquid liners so feel like I have to share when I found a good one. I must have randomly picked this up on one of my drug store runs because I was shocked to see the price when I looked it up to link it for y’all. *Europe readers- I could only find this directly on thecremeshop.com website!
Kat Von D Powder // After watching one of the Vogue celeb make up videos on YouTube, Sofia Richie sold me on changing up my routine. I started slightly baking under my eyes and over blemishes after using concealer. I don’t leave the powder on as long as her, but it really helps set the concealer! I know I’m late to this game, but she made me want to try it. The mini size will last a while!
Kylie Cosmetics Lipstick // Still love these lippies! I remember when it was hell trying to get one of them online when they were first being sold and now you can get them at places like Ulta and ASOS. If you haven’t tried them, I think they are totally worth the hype.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel + CHEER // Once I finished binging CHEER (also another fave), I restarted Mrs. Maisel. (Fun fact: I cheered in middle school and “freshman year” of high school! I broke my leg + dislocated my ankle a few weeks before freshman year started. Totally wasn’t as hardcore as that team, but we can pretend.) My mom and I watched Maisel a while back on one of our beach vaycays, and I loved it! I decided to start it from the beginning and am such a fan.
Food prices in Ireland // Basically to build a cheese board here is cheaper than in Texas. So that itself is a good reason to move. Haha but seriously, some random things that I always get have been cheaper over here! (With that, some are more expensive too or they don’t have them.)
Coffee // One of the big food things I knew I was going to miss was coffee creamer. In Texas/SC you can get basically 40+ different flavors and y’all know I always used them. In Ireland they don’t have any! One of my favorite bloggers, Olivia Rink, interviewed a nutritionist a while back who I remember mentioned using heavy cream instead creamers. I decided that would be my new thing…which it is, but I also found this instant coffee that’s so good and I don’t need creamer with. You guys in the US can shop it on Amazon!
Day trips to Dublin // We took two day trips to Dublin this month! I love going there to eat and explore. Don’t worry, I’ll have blog posts with my fave spots coming!
Converters // As if I’m giving up my curling iron and Alexa haha. My cute mother sent me over a few and really love them. They have a main plug and also two usb ports. *The brand is Ceptics.
Water bottle // Actually drinking the amount of water you’re meant to each day…all thanks to this water bottle! I weirdly drink more when I have a straw and this bottle also has the times written on it which helps keep me on track. It’s also super inexpensive. *I bought mine off of the Amazon UK site, so found one as similar as I could!
Hope your first month in 2020 was fabulous! My new planner has a monthly reflections page where I can rate myself on each goal I set for this year. I also have a new budget ready to roll, so let’s see if I get sick of writing in the cost 27 lattes each month and that makes cuts me back. Worth a shot!
