In the lead up to tax time (and after a few recent online shopping sprees) I have been trying to be more mindful of where I am spending my money. Living in a rural area means online shopping is my go-to which is both a good and bad thing! I find online shopping is so easy and accessible which I love but it often means I can fall into the trap of impulse purchasing (naughty). However I do love the convenience of being able to scout out the best deals when trawling the interwebs!
I thought since I’m money minding I would share with you my favourite products on my Winter wish list that I’ve been lusting over (and not purchasing) at least until I save for them! Do you prefer to save up for something in stead of lashing out and impulse buying? I usually prefer to buy something I love right away so this is a new thing for me! Let’s see how well I hold out! Check it out…
Damselfly Goal Digger candle: I’ve been lusting over these candles for a really long time and I’m still yet to buy one! Love me a bit of ‘goal digging’. There’s so many more from this collection that I’d love to buy. They’ve released a cute bridal/wedding collection so I can’t wait until a friend of mine is getting married so I can gift them one!
RM Williams Adelaide cuban heel boot: I have been drooling over the updated line of RM Williams boots for ladies for a really long time! Ever since I purchased a new pair of the Adelaide flat boots in black leather last year as an investment piece I’ve been longing for another pair. These ones are adorable in that muted wintery bone colour, and I love the rustic texture of suede. Oh be still my beating heart.
Gucci GG Marmont Camera Mini crossbody bag: This is a serious investment piece, as is any designer product but I love the versatility of this bag! I’ll be saving for a while to purchase this baby but I think it’s the perfect size for everyday wear that would never go out of style!
Forever New Brody Parka: I’ve been on the hunt for a khaki parka for a long time and I love the quality of Forever New jackets. Every season they seem to bring out lovely coats. I recently found the most perfect nude coat online at FN and I hesitated to purchase it. When I did finally go back online to buy it was sold out everywhere! This parka would be my next choice!
The Fleur wool hat by Lack of Colour: I’m such a fan of this brand! Last year I purchased one of their grey fedoras and I love it. They’re super stylish and really affordable. This one comes in at only $89! Gotta love a new season purchase under $100 – and that colour! Of course it’s true love.
Violet Gray I am Open 9kt necklace: I am so in love with this intentional jewellery label! Trav bought me one of the heart chakra necklaces for Christmas two years ago and it’s one of my absolute favourite pieces of jewellery. I love the simplicity of this necklace in yellow gold.
Illamasqua Sculpting Powder duo: I was watching a beauty blogger on youtube recently and saw her recommendation for this illuminating duo palette and I am dying to try it! I have only ever used a stick highlighter before and would really love to try a powder version. I love how subtle this illuminator is – from what I’ve seen, it goes on beautifully and makes a real impact.
Assembly Label Adele shirt: I’m a fan of this label and seriously love their minimalist approach to their clothes. A lot of what they offer is very relaxed, almost ‘athleisure’ style but they do also offer some other great pieces like this classic button down shirt. I’m in the market for a new button down and I can’t go past a classic white shirt.
What goodies are you lusting over this season?
