everything I bought this year
Well... not everything I bought this year but all of my favorite purchases of this year, 2020!
At the start of the year, my goal was to not shop. When I say not shop I mean not buy things that were not a "want", only buy things that were a "need".
I was doing really well with that goal. Then covid happened, I got stressed out and wanted to treat myself. It became a snowball effect...
I am just joking I am not that bad when it comes to shopping haha..
Anyways, here are a few of my favorite purchases of 2020 and why I love them so much!
The first time I made a purchase from Shein was this year. I heard a lot of things, mixed reviews. I ordered a few things:
I really love everything I have purchased from Shein. Ya, the quality is not the best but you get what you pay for. I get bored of clothes easily so I do not like to spend too much money on pieces. That is why I like Shein, I do not feel as bad if I do not get enough wear out of something.
The shorts above are my favorite pair of od denim shorts. Tall girls these are for you! They cover your butt.
The bodysuits I love the black one I bought. It fits my body perfectly. I wear it all the time. The brown one with one shoulder strap also a favorite. It is so simple but the cut makes it so fun and chic. The white one is also a great fit. Just keep in mind for that one it is a thinner fabric so you may need some sort of a bra.
Tops, Blouses, and More
I got into blouses this year. Thinking I would be going out wayyy more, thank you Covid...
I still feel like I could get a lot of use out of these. Having cute date nights, seeing my friends (my bubble), and for parties. When I say parties I mean me and whoever lives in my house. Covid has really voided my social life haha..
These blouses are also great to wear at work or even every day. Some of them can be dressed up and down. Which is what I look for in clothing pieces. blouses that can be worn in multiple ways.
BOOTS! I said I was not going to buy anymore.
I love these boots so affordable and I love the detailing on them. I was always a sucker for some combat boots and these crock ones are so different than the usual plain all-black ones I would get. Also, these boots with the stud details just elevate your look. I will wear them with a cardigan black jeans and a t-shirt and adding these boots just ties the look together.
I bought so many things in terms of organization this year. During Covid I, like everyone else was home a lot more. I took that time to organize.
Here is EVERYTHING I bought to organize my lie:
I love the acrylic storage for my makeup. I also along with my mum loved the two-tier acrylic bathroom organizer. My counter is small in my washroom. I always had everything spread out on the counter. It drove me nuts. This allows me to keep it all tidy and gives me so much more counter space.

Ohh my, I bought a lot of them. Again I thought I would be going out more. However, I have gotten so many compliments and questions about these. They are so fun, different and Definity statement heels! I was surprised I stayed away from buying all black shoes. I have was too many all black shoes, I needed some colour in my life!
OBSESSED with this brand and their products !! I have seen results with every product I have bought from The Ordinary.
Salicylic Acid 2% Solution
I get a few pimples, but my blackheads on my nose are so bad. I was talking to one of the associates at The Ordinary and she recommended this product. "What It Does This treatment exfoliates deep inside the walls of pores to fight acne, oily skin, and blemishes. It promotes smoother skin texture and visible clarity with regular use."
I noticed them disappearing with regular use. Although, the associate told me to use it every other day, or three days because it can dry out your skin. That is what I have been doing and it has definitely helped to make those nasty blackheads disappear.
Caffeine Solution 5%+ EGCG
LOVE THIS! I see results instantly. This product is for your under eyes and those dark circles. It also helps with puffiness.
"This light-textured formula contains an extremely high 5% concentration of caffeine, supplemented with highly-purified Epigallocatechin Gallatyl Glucoside (EGCG) from green tea leaves".
I have insomnia and for a long time, especially recently my under eyes have been so bad, dark, and puffy. I started using this in the morning, and my mom said my under eyes looked so much better and I looked well-rested. I know I saw the results as well.
You can also apply this under your makeup. That is also something I do because lets be honest there is not enough concealer in the world to cover my dark circles.

Urban planet I have been shopping at for years! It is a Canadian company. They offer affordable on-trend fashion. I like the quality! A lot of their sweaters, jeans, etc.. I have had for years! It is my go-to place to shop!
To say I live in this sweater would be a fact! I can not lie I do not want to take it off! It is such a warm fuzzy fabric. It is like the sweater is hugging you. it is perfect for cold Canadian winters.
