This week I finally purchased one of my dream beauty buys – the Mason Pearson hairbrush. It has literally been on the ‘Christmas List’ for years, and this year my dear mother decided to gift me some money so I could buy one myself. I think she felt it was far too much to spend on a brush so couldn’t quite do it herself, she made some excuse and handed over the cash…. and yes it is very expensive for a hairbrush… do I think its worth it? Hard to tell really. It does make brushing your hair feel like such a luxury though. And I have a lot of hair so I have to brush it regularly. It also looks very pretty on the dressing table. I went for nylon and natural bristle, the website has a clever little tool that lets you put all your hair details in and then up pops their recommendations. I also went for the largest, far quicker brush-time with this mane.
If you buy one online here they are offering 25% off until Monday!
Second on (what I am now calling) the list of guilt… a very reasonable H&M cardigan. This is from the H&M basic collection and cost £14.99. Anyone that has read past posts and followed my IG will know I am obsessed with leopard print so when I spotted this simple cardigan on route to the changing room I had to make a quick pit-stop and grab my size. I am afraid I have searched online and they don’t have it but if you head to the Basic range in your closest store hopefully it will be in stock. I have also included an alternative here that is gorgeous and this amazing cardigan I didn’t even see in store but am now coveting!
So I left everything else in the changing room and came home with just this feeling smug that I hadn’t spent too much money.
My husband and I had discussed Valentines and to be honest we don’t really buy into it, I think after Christmas and then my birthday is in January, February we are done with gifts and trying to keep those purse strings closed. But after a bit of a rough few months health wise in our family he thought I deserved a treat and within seconds (of course) I knew what I wanted… a simple gold bangle. And today I found the perfect one! In a little local jewellers. It is beautiful and I will make sure I post it on IG next week… if I am allowed to wear it pre-Valentines…eeek.
And there it is… the list of guilt.
Did you buy anything new this week? Any finds you want to share?
