This week has been hot and it has got me in the mood to update my summer wardrobe. For me I love handbags, but unfortunately over the last five years my life has been taken over by babies and the need for changing bags. I am currently using three changing bags that I change between , but now I’m back at work and able to leave the children as my nursing duties are over it’s all about me again and my love of handbags. I love a handbag I can either sling over my shoulder easily or I can cross over my body and I decided for summer I wanted to find the perfect tote to compliment a summer dress and some sandals. I resent paying full price and find the whole shopping process far more rewarding if I can get myself a bargain.
I recently stumbled upon a website dedicated to sale shopping and I am hooked. Love the sales aggregate sales from the top 700 retailers and display them all on one website. It focuses predominantly on fashion, but also covers beauty,home, garden, electronics, sports etc. I decided to get searching and entered my budget and style to refine my search and quickly found a bag that I love that was also £29 off. I went for the Kurt Geiger Cravela Krypton shopping bag and I can say I’m really impressed. Shopping in sales online can be a tad overwhelming and I found love the sales a far more relaxing experience and obviously a wider selection. It’s my new go to website for online shopping.

One thing that has really been getting me down recently is my skin. I stopped using my BareMinerals powder after I run out and instead used my going out Estee Lauder Double wear. The results have left me with horrible skin. I have suffered with acne since a teen and haven’t found anything that completely clears it. I decided to ask some other bloggers if they had any experience and I was quickly directed to the brand La Roche-Posay that do skincare for many different skin complaints. I decided to head to my local Boots and have a browse and quickly drawn to the Effalar ‘3-step’- anti-blemish system and to my delight it was also reduced from £32.50 to £24.37. I decided to snap it up and give it a try. The set includes a gel cleanser, a toner to reduce the size of pores and a repair and hydrate. So far after a few days it does seem to have stopped my skin from being so oily and it’s dramatically changed the size of my pores. Spot wise I still have them but they do seem to be drying out and I haven’t had any new ones. I’m impressed so far and hope it continues to work. I have also made sure to get the new BareMinerals Bare-pro foundation and so far I am really impressed with it. I have been using BareMinerals for a good four years now and honestly love the stuff. It’s light weight, you can build coverage and it lasts all day.
I love my Pandora bracelet, but I don’t often wear it in the day so I decided to go for one of the brown weather straps to make it more casual for day use and I love it. I love brown leather and I think it looks great for summer and it’s a great way of showing off my many various charms which I can interchange daily for different looks. unfortunately this was not in the sale at £45, but I love that I will now get so much more use out of my charms which usually only come out for a special occasion.
What have been your favorite summer buys this season?
