My March Purchases

frank Cacao Coffee Scrub, £12.95/200g
This body scrub has been on my wish list for quite some time, so I finally ordered it! Containing ingredients such as coffee, sweet almond oil, brown sugar, sea salt, walnut shell powder, and cocoa extract, this scrub promises to target cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis, varicose veins, eczema, and acne. I cannot wait to try this out!
Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo, £2.99/200ml
I was running out of dry shampoo, so picked this one up in Superdrug.
COLAB Paris Dry Shampoo, £3.49 £2.32/200ml
And I also picked up this out to try out. The fragrance is quite over-powering while spraying, but there is no white residue left behind in your hair!
Giovanni 2Chic Flat Iron Styling Mist, £8.99/118ml
I had previously tried the blow-dry mist, but as I am now straightening my hair regularly, I thought it more appropriate to pick up this one for that specific reason. This helps to reduce frizz and protect hair from heat.

Dorothy Perkins Paisley Fit & Flare Dress, £35 and Dorothy Perkins Floral Skater Dress (Tall), £18
I came over feeling all spring-like and felt I needed some new dresses in my life! I placed an order for two on the Dorothy Perkins website, and managed to get 25% off plus free delivery - oh, and a £5 off voucher for my next order! Not too shabby, eh? I featured the paisley dress on this wish list, and it got lots of lovely comments! I think I actually ordered it the same day as posting the wish list! With the boho-feel, it's a subtle enough way for me to dip my toes into the 70's trend, without donning huge flares and tasseled accessories. I haven't had an occasion to wear this yet, although I feel like I'm waiting for that perfect occasion to showcase it.
The rose print skater dress is really lovely and is a great fit; the first item from a Tall range I've ever tried! See me wearing it here.
Krisp Ripped Patched Skinny Jeans, £21.99 and Krisp Double Zip Plain Skinny Jeans, £19.99 £10
I was lucky enough to grab a 50% off voucher for Krisp, so I took this opportunity to stock up on more of their jeans, as I love my other pair from them. They are a really good fit and have stretchy, comfy material.
Jangneus Pack Of 4 Design Cloths, £9.95
Bit of a random one here! Ethical Superstore had 20% off loads of items the other week, so I popped these in my basket along with my other cleaning supplies. They definitely brighten up the spring-cleaning tasks! These cloths  are really eco-friendly, being made from cellulose and recycled cotton, plus they are 100% biodegradable so they can be placed on your compost when no longer in use! Thumbs up for the lovely presentation, too!

I also purchased this VAGA Pink Crystal Glass Nail File, £2.99 as I have an invisible nail file thief, and as they had struck again recently, I needed to order a new one! I decided on trying a glass one, as opposed to the usual metal ones I use. I'm still waiting for this to arrive!

What new purchases did you make in March?


  1. Those skinny jeans are a bargain, I need a pair like that so bad. Do you prefer Colab or Bastiste? I tend to buy a lot of dry shampoo for festivals but I don't like the white residue it leaves! Colab sounds better in that area...

    1. I'd definitely recommend trying Krisp for their jeans! Colab is great as it doesn't leave any residue, but I think overall, I prefer Batiste as it seems to last longer. I'm looking into making a D.I.Y dry shampoo, so it could be even better and will save money. xxx

  2. Lovely purchases Emma! I love the 70's dress and the jeans so much! I’m tall too but rarely buy from the tall section. I live in dresses and leggings and don’t mind if the dress is a little shorter. You can’t go wrong with Dorothy Perkins. I normally buy from the high street but was wondering how delivery etc is from the Dorthy Ps website? Fabulous post!! :-) xx

    1. Thank you, Helen, I think I did pretty well on the purchase front! Dorothy Perkins' delivery service is really good; not had any problems there. I think the order usually arrives pretty quickly! They often have % off offers or free delivery if you sign up to emails, so check first! :) xxx
