The big 5: October


1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Looks like Zara will be taking lots of my money this month!

I wanted the original City Bag yonks ago, but for some reason never got my act together and bought it.  Now it's sold out, and the new version is out.  It's £10 more and I think a little more slouchy, but I think I should just get it now or I'll regret it forever!  And speaking of bags, this shopper reminds me a little of the Mulberry Willow but with a much more accessible price tag.  I don't think you can go wrong with Zara handbags!

Another Zara buy is this checked shirt.  I'm not 100% sure on this one; the checked shirt that all the bloggers went nuts for last year just didn't look right on me, so I'm not sure whether this is a style that I just can't do.  The faux leather joggers are another maybe as well....I just can't figure out which shoes I'd wear with them and whether they'd be versatile or not.  I've noticed that the model's been styled with black wedge trainers on the website though, so perhaps I could give that a go.

And finally, another one I've been meaning to get for a while is the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder.  Maybe the amount of money I'm prepared to pay for make up has gone up, but this doesn't seem as expensive as I thought it was?  I don't buy make up as regularly anymore, so perhaps subconsciously I'm more willing to invest a little more! 

Last month I didn't quite stick to buying only five things....check out my haul video here.  It's getting closer to Christmas now though, so I'll have to start being good! 


  1. Loving that bag and check shirt! xx

  2. I love the grey bag, it's gorgeous! I'm trying SO hard to be good and not buy myself much at the moment- but with all the pretty autumn things, it's SO difficult! xx

  3. Oooh I love those Zara handbags. I'm trying to be good too, it's so difficult at the start of new seasons.

  4. That bag is gorgeous! I am yet to buy a Zara bag as I'm still infatuated with my Alexa, but if I were to go there, THIS would be the bag xo
