My April Purchases

 If you haven't seen my previous blog post you can read it here, but to quickly explain, I am about to make a little reflection of purchases I made in April.

I am huge fashion enthusiast and someone who make my life all about it - I treat myself to fashion and beauty pieces nearly every month and because I am trying to be better shopper I decided that in 2021 I will journal my choices. Hopefully this will come useful to you. It is definitely useful to me.

Despite my good choices in previous months I think I went back to my old habits, and went crazy with shops I didn't buy from as much for a while. Is it really bad? Well as long as my choices will last a long time, I don't necessarily think it's that bad.

But let's start from the beginning, shall we?


When browsing Office I found the pair of boots I have been looking for, but was too cheap to pay full price on. They were nearly half price off, so went for them. Couldn't be more happy with it, you can still find them here. Because they are such a classic pair of boots, they will last regardless of trends and current fashion. The neutral brown is beautiful, very subtle, and I believe they will go with any dress I have in my wardrobe, just add any brown bag and you good to go. They are also available in black, if you fancy, just check here.


Thinking ahead of Summer or sunny and warm weather I got myself Birkenstock sandals. Somehow they came back as hot trendy piece of fashion, which I am all for. Having the sandals before, I was worried about the inside shape, however I got myself narrow model, right here, which comes super handy with my very narrow and long feet. They fit perfectly and if you a neutral lover as much as I am, let me tell you, they go with everything. I am actually very excited of styling them with contrasting colours, and brown and blue combo would be my preference. Love how those two complement each other (not something I would put together, definitely saw other fashion gurus doing it and fell straight in love). 


Radley was never on my radar as a fashion brand. I do love their pieces, but nothing ever caught my attention until now. When shopping in Gloucester Quays which is a little outlet, I saw Radley having sale of already reduced pieces. This beautiful summer shopper caught my eye, however I was convinced it will still cost a fortune, I  couldn't be more wrong. It was £32 only, and I just couldn't not to get it.


H&M is such a hit and miss for me. I used to buy a lot, usually from sale, but I was avoiding it for a long time. Now this month I discovered few very good pieces. It took me some time and few orders to figure out sizing, but I am very happy with what I managed to get. 

First of all I got two shirt dresses, which somehow I was able to get reduced. Timeless, versatile and good quality, all I can say, totally worth it.

Linen shirt. Again such a classic piece, very good quality and very affordable.

Blazer, that I would never know how amazing it is if I didn't try it on in the store. I am so impressed with it, I wanted to get more, however what I ordered online in different colour is is not the same, went straight back as it was total rubbish.


As soon as lockdown lifted here in UK, I went to Primark. They are online too, but it's always a gamble, you never know what you going to get, so I prefer actual store. Other than basic bits and bobs that I got,  I found this cute summer bag, which is proving such a find, as I love to style it with the blazer I mention above and all of my dresses for the season.

The last bits I would like to mention, are headbands. In one of my instagram posts I mentioned my roots and I got amazing comment from one of my followers that headbands are amazing to cover it in between hairdresser visits. I went crazy with it, with different styles and colours as they do work on me. I got few from Home BargainsPrimarkBoots

And that is all my Friends! Let me know if you found it useful? I did, so I will keep this journal if not for you, definitely for me.

See ya next time!
