Payday Purchases Haul #1


So you may or may not know that I recently got a part-time job in a clothing shop in Dublin, so as you can imagine, I am certainly enjoying having a few extra dollah bills coming my way each week. As such, I have decided to make it somewhat of a series on my blog, to show you how I have chosen to spend some of my wages, a Payday Purchases Haul, if you will. If you have a catchier name, please leave it below!

Paperchase/ Waterstones: How did I not know these shops were in Dublin?! Paperchase is quite literally my dream shop. I could go in there in blow my pay checks in one place! I picked up this Blogger's Journal (€24) as I need a diary for college, and when I saw the adorable print of this one I couldn't not buy it. It has a few different sections in it; Monthly Blog Goals, a to-do section, a calendar, and even places to log your blog and social media stats.

I also bought two books; The Luxe Life by Fleur De Force, and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (both reduced to €13). Fleur's book is just so aesthetically pleasing, the perfect backdrop to photos of makeup, as well as looking beautiful on your bookshelf or coffee table. And as for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, well you couldn't expect me to not buy it, being the Harry Potter fangirl that I am.

Kildare Village: I popped into Kildare Village yesterday with my dad, and I was feeling a little bit #spendy. I first went into Kate Spade, spurred on by the fact that there was an extra 10%-20% off everything, and I decided that I should wait a while and save up for a proper bag, but in the meantime I spotted this cute iPad Mini case for €40 and decided that it was going straight in my basket. (extra brownie points for you if you got that reference!).

I then stopped by Lulu Guinness and saw that their little leather card holders and coin purses were considerably reduced. I got this gorgeous blue coin purse and cream and gold card holder which I am obsessed with, all for €40.

Boots: Finally, I just had to stop by the new NYX stand in the Jervis Street Boots. I have been wanting to try the Soft Matte Lip Creams (€7.20) for ages, so I picked up one in the shade Abu Dhabi, a browny nude which feels gorgeous on the lips. I also picked up the Butter Gloss (€7) in Madeleine, another browny lip product, because can you ever have enough?

So as you can see I may have gone a bit crazy, but it won't be happening every month so it's ok every now and then to have a little bit of a splurge. Right?

P.S: Please excuse the awful background, I just ordered some marble contact paper on Amazon so I can finally have a decent background!



  1. I loved this post, Emma! My sister just purchased the Harry Potter book too. I love the black cold harder. Very chic. Great post! xx


  2. Nice post! I stupidly forgot to pre-order Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, so I had to put in on order and I probably won't get it for a week or two. I love the Blogger's Journal, so cute.

  3. I can't wait to read the new JK's adventure.
