soooo.

early on in the month I watched a fairly interested Hannah Louise Poston video in which she more or less expressed having a kind of moderation breakdown in her personal life. she effectively beat herself up on camera and it was quite a painful watch in terms of the emotional impact of shopping.
She alluded to the idea that there are either abstainers or moderators (of which i fall into the former category due to a lack of self control). i feel like having a month of big spending then one of absolutely none 100% reinforces this.

it's very much my personality type.

| Avene | Soothing Thermal Spring Water Spray | 50ml | £4.50 | Boots |
this was a purchase for the trip to amsterdam. admittedly i could have managed without but i went hard with the boots points and this is where we've ended up. 

| Nivea | Anti-Perspirant Spray | 35ml | £1.50 | Superdrug |
another amsterdam purchase. i was fearful i'd be a stinky little madam from all the walking around in coats and popping into shops etc. so panic purchased. 
bigggggg regrets as i've sworn of anti-antiperspirants. 

| Nyx | Sweet Cheeks Creamy Powder Blush Matte | So Taupe | £6 | Boots | 
so i might've ordered and returned a Kjaer Weis bronzer before realising nothing to put on my face should be worth £44. you just wash it off at the end of the day.

| Nyx | Sweet Cheeks Creamy Powder Blush Glow | So Taupe | £6 | Boots | 
i wasn't sure which of the blushes i would want - matte v glow so I might've gone for both in a panic. 

| Palmers | Cocoa Butter Formula Concentrated Cream | 60g | £2.09 | Superdrug |
my previous hand cream was the O'Keeffe's working hands (which by the way has incredibly glowing reviews which confuse me because it's not all that)  but like i wanted something which would make my hands feel nicer than sandpaper. 

| Leganza | Colouring Conditioner | 31 Bitter Chocolate | £4.75 | Amazon |
i want to bring down the redness in my hair so that regrowth to my usual mousy brown isn't too painful.
my hair at the moment is the best it has ever been.

| Radox | Muscle Soak Bath Salts | £1 | Tesco | 
i bought this because i fancied a bath and wanted to at least feel like it was productive.
30p per pamper sesh isn't awful but it's also unnecessary. 

| Bourjois | Rouge Edition Velvet | Brun Croyable | £8.49 | Look Fantastic |
massive regrets on this already. amazon makes it wayyy to easy to buy things.

| Aurelia Washbag | £13.50 | Aurelia |
i needed another washbag yo.

| Original Source | Water Infusion Apple & Melon | £2.00 | Boots |
ahem. washing

| Original Source | Water Infusion Pineapple & Lemon | £2.00 | Boots |
again. for the washing.

| Boots | Berries & Cream Shower Gel | £0.75 | Boots |
yeah i don't know why i bought three. but then again i'm the one with a shopping problem so.......

| Alberto Balsam | Ultra Strong Styling Gel | £1.00 | Sainsbury's |
i love the smell of this and i'm not quite sure how well it's working but my curls look wicked.




| Balibrush | Bamboo Toothbrushes | £4.99 | Amazon |
i'm not sure if i needed these. but for some reason i bought lots anyway.

i'm going to group the below hair purchases under 'corona virus made me do it'. and just hope that we can write this off as an unfortunate blip in our collective history and allow certain poor choices.
it does continue to reinforce how my coping strategy is to shop.
