My Goals Til The End Of The Year

WOO, I'm back, it feels weird having a bit of a break. But in all honesty it was very overdue, I'm the kind of person that finds themselves running on empty quite a bit. It's something I don't want to be like obviously, but I'm very much an 'oh well I'll find time for a break later on' rather than at the moment when I need it. It's not exactly been a relaxing sit around do nothing, it's been more of a right I have a new job so my attention needs to be on that, I'm in the world of 9-5 so it's taken me some time to find my feet and get settled into the new routine. 

But I feel like I've got there now, I actually do 7 hours a day so my trick to combat that is to do add an extra hour onto my day to go to a cute cafe and get some blog posts done. And with that, I wanted to set myself some goals so that this break and time to think was for more than my return post. My blog has been very up and down over the years, it's had an up and dow…

Why I Wouldn't Buy A Designer Item




Controversial really, we can all sit there and say that we wouldn't buy something designer, apart from the fact that I can't afford to anyway it. For me spending that much money on one thing doesn't sit right with me, there are so many things you could get for that one off purchase. When it comes to a designer item I wouldn't just buy it on a whim, I want to be able to justify the price. It's a lot of money to spend on something that may not actually be worth it, you hear people banging on about the quality of these items but surely you could've still got that somewhere else. 

In terms of makeup I don't ever want to spend a lot, it sounds bizarre but for me, I don't see the point. Okay, there are better results sometimes but that doesn't mean you can't work on the lower end products and get them to that standard. It might take practice but you get there in the end, and your pocket still has money in it. I went through a phase where I would justify £26 foundations that yeah made a difference to my makeup, but a better primer and some more time applying a cheaper foundation would have done the same trick. 



In the beauty world, you really have to watch brands, a lot of high-end brands use the same ingredients as do drugstores. But that designer packaging and brand name make it sound justifiable. Also, a lot of high-end brands own drugstore companies so there are always more than enough dupes lying about. Big brands often charge way over the top for products you could've got at the drugstore. Whilst on the topic of brands, who even cares about the brand. I wouldn't be embarrassed if I have a stack of Revolution products and everyone else is there with Too faced and MAC its money wasted on products that aren't that much different to what's available in the drugstore. 

Fashion wise I really struggle to justify the prices for high-end items, I can sit there and dream all day about them but it's very rare I would ever buy any. For me a lot of it is quite simple, with cheaper alternatives being readily available I don't see the need to spend so much, on something I could get somewhere else. 

For me I just don't see the point in designer purchases, it seems weird to spend so much money on something that won't last me for ages. It won't always stay in Fashion and I would just feel weird spending that much money on just one thing. Let me know what you think of spending money on designer purchases, for me it just seems like a lot to spend on something. 

Until next time, Chloe!
