Life Is Short, Just Buy It | Latest Purchases

I may have bought a couple of items over the last couple of months… Before I started my internship, I used to go shopping in Leiden, The Hague or Amsterdam whenever I had a day (sometimes even an hour)  off from school. But now that I’ve been doing my internship five days a week, I don’t have these kind of shopping days anymore. That’s kind of unfortunate but it’s also a good thing because I can save a lot of money. Anyways, that’s kind of besides the point because I did buy a couple of things like I already said. Fifty percent of this blog post consist of clothing items and the other fifty percent consist of random fun things (maybe even a new cacti…). Let’s get started!

Blogging Quote Shirt: Adolescent Clothing € 28,00 | Lammy Jacket: MANGO € 39,99

Yes, I wanted to share the most exciting thing first instead of last. This exciting thing is my new Blogging > Jogging shirt! A while ago I had seen Zoe Sugg (aka Zoella) wearing this in one of her videos and of course I loved it. I was looking for it on the internet for a long time and when I finally found it, yes I bought it. It’s such a comfortable shirt and the quote on it makes the shirt even better.

The next clothing item is this brown lammy jacket! You might have already seen this in my latest outfit post because I just couldn’t wait to share it with all of you. It’s such a warm and comfortable jacket. It’s the perfect replacement for my pink jacket, which I got last year and wore all winter and beginning of spring.

Naked Palette: Urban Decay € 49,90

My very first purchase of 2016 is actually this makeup palette. A couple of years ago I used to be really into makeup and I would buy a new product every single week. But after a couple of months it wasn’t as fun anymore and I put all of the makeup I bought in a box and put it away. Do you get this as well with random things? Anyways, over the past years I’ve always wanted to buy and play around with the Urban Decay Naked palette. When I got a gift card for Christmas, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to finally get this palette. I have to be honest, I haven’t had a chance to use it… But I have swatched all of the eyeshadows and they are so beautiful.

Earrings: My Treasure Hunts € 14,95 | Mini Cactus: BAM! € 1,50

When I was in The Hague with Eline, we visited some lovely stores. One of those stores was Collectiv. I am not going to tell you too much about it but I will tell you that they sell stuff from multiple brands. One of those brands is My Treasure Hunts. As you might know, I have two earring holes in bots my ears. I actually find it very hard to find earrings that I like together. When I was walking through Collectiv. I saw the My Treasure Hunts earrings and I loved all of the different ones. In the end I ended up going with the dotted earrings and I might go back and buy another pair.

With that I also got something else… It may be a mini cactus? I know, I already own lots of cacti but I’ve never owned such a little and cute cactus. At Collectiv. they also sell products from BAM!. They had a whole drawer filled with lots of small cacti. Some of them even had little sombreros on, so how could I not buy one? My cacti family keeps growing… ?

Beige Watch: Tassled € 49,99 | Leather Bracelet: Everlasting Moments (via Lucardi) € 15,99

A little while ago I got contacted by Lucardi about their new Tassled watches. I’ve always been really into watches but for some reason I always forget about them, which is a shame. When I first saw these Tassled watches, I loved how unique they look. I got this beige kind of colored watch with rose gold detailing. Most of the time I am all about silver but I actually loved how the beige and rose gold looked together. The little tassel on the side of the watch makes the whole look complete, don’t you think? I paired the watch with this leather bracelet. The thing I love about this bracelet is the fact it’s easy to pair with a very casual outfit but also with a more fancy look.

Light Grey/Blue Jeans: ICHI € 49,95 | White Sweater: Pull & Bear € 15,99

The last two items I wanted to share with you are indeed clothing items again. It seems like I buy a lot of new clothing items but that’s not the case. When I have time on the weekends, I spend time with my friends and sometimes I see something I like and I buy it. There’s a very big ‘but’ at the end there because I only buy things if I need them. As you can see I bought a new pair of jeans. These are light grey or blue colored jeans and a little bit high waisted. I was in desperate need of a new pair of jeans and these are very comfortable (here you can see an outfit post with them).

Last but definitely not least, I bought this white sweater with slits on the side. I’ve seen lots of people wearing those type of sweaters or shirts during fashion week and I really like how this looks.  Since this sweater wasn’t expensive at all, I bought it and I’ve been wearing it lots ever since. And that was already the last item of this Latest Purchases post. Which of these items is your favorite? What is the last thing you recently bought?
