Things To Buy In 2017!

5 Trends To Follow!

-  -  -

A Practical Handbag!
A good practical handbag doesn't necessarily need to be a designer one. As long as you love it, it
has room for everything you need on a day to day basis and is of good quality, then you're onto a
winner. I only own a few handbags now a days and probably have just one I use the most day to day.

However with my birthday coming up this month it got me thinking about what do I really actually
want and need. Since my major decluttering since moving I know for sure I definitely only want
quality over quantity. Quantity is word which just haunts me now!

This bag by Michael Kors is great because it is quality, a timeless colour and a great size, plus
comes with matching purse. Seriously contemplating this, even if I need to save up to buy it myself!

A Pair Of Designer Heels (Or 2!)
Now, there was a time when I had a hard time throwing away my shoes! I must have owned at least
thirty pairs and none of which where of any kind of decent quality. Since becoming a mum and
realising how your possessions triple with all of their stuff I knew my mindset needed to change!

After doing some research on how to de-clutter and watching videos on Youtube about minimalism,
it really helped me during the whole process. Now I only own about ten pairs and even that seems
like too many since I probably only wear 2-3 of them regularly!

In saying that I am still a bit of a fashionista and like to own nice things and that does include a
nice pair of classic designer heels. I figure if I can half my shoe collection either by donating,
selling or chucking the bad ones away then I can justify purchasing perhaps just one or two pairs of
like the ones below. Since both black and nude are classic must have colours and since I don't own
any other shoes in this style, then these are worth saving up my dollar coins for in the long run!

Bedroom Storage!
You can never have too much storage space and with Christmas just gone, with all of the extra
possessions we have accumulated during this holiday season a nice grey practical ottoman to match
the couch and dining chairs sounds like a great idea to me!

Our couch and dining chairs are already this same grey shade with the black legs so I am seriously
contemplating getting this for our lounge room area! Not only does it provide storage space for all
the kids toys which have somehow ventured from the hidden caves of their rooms into the lounge
room, therefore turning it into an instant playroom. This storage ottoman can hide all the toys away
at the end of the day and TA-DA! My lounge room is all of a sudden turned magically back into an
adult relaxation space!

Grown Up Luggage!
Admittedly, I haven't gone away anywhere on holiday in years, however I am optimistic 2017 might
be my year! I LOVE to travel and the hubster and I regularly dream of doing it more. So being
prepared doesn't seem like a bad thing to do, right?

The only luggage I currently own is an oversized handbag and not much else. I love the look of this
Samsonite luggage because it's rose gold (my favourite obsession at the moment), it's a decent,
generous size without being difficult to handle, had a combination lock and most importantly it has a
hard outer shell to keep everything protected and dry on the inside!

Haha! How could I resist leaving this off my list? It's just too funny not too! Whoever thought of
naming this product of glittery sparkly goo completely nailed it! Unicorn Snot? Oh yes, that sounds
exactly like something I want to lather all over my body and face! lol

Because deep down we all really want to be unicorns....

My Top 5 Fashion & Beauty Tend Predictions!

(Click an image to shop these trends!)

1.) Off the shoulder fashion. Be it one shoulder or two. Baring some skin up top is going
to be huge this Summer!

2.) Ruffles and bows are back! Think girlie layers on a fitted cotton shirt tied at the side with a
statement bow. Tone down this busy trend by pairing with some classic jeans, black pants or one
coloured maxi skirt, some cut off shorts or a plain top for bows and busy bits on the bottom half!

3.) Rose gold is here to stay, as is marble, turquoise, crystal, stone and boho style jewellery,
clothing, fashion and home decor items.

4.) Eco friendly, natural skincare & makeup, vegan products, etc. These kinds of demands by
consumers is only going to grow! Here are some of my favourite brands and products that fit this
description below.

5.) Cosmetic tattooing. Forget tattooing on eyebrows, lip colour and eyeliner. That is so 2016!
The next big thing is cosmetic tattooing by reducing the appearance of stretch marks by tattooing
over them to even out the skin tone in the area and disguising their appearance! Clever!
