So a lot of my posts recently have been quite heavy, or to do with my struggle during the lockdown.  Now I’m not saying that I’m no longer struggling (still on that COVID coaster as I heard it referred to #lovethat).  However, the more I write the more I realise that it would be good for us all if I shared a few more lighthearted pieces along the way too.  So, what better way to be lighthearted than to share my top 5 online buys during these last few months.


Okay so my OH actually bought me these (we have matching pairs LOL), but I’d been looking at Mahabis now for a couple of years, and just couldn’t warrant that much on a slipper.  The OH in the meantime found and bought these beauties from Comfortfusse.  He bought at Sports Pursuit, but they only have limited stock.

Perfect lockdown comfort.

Hair Colour

In someways lockdown was a blessing in disguise as I had decided to grow my hair.  Anyone who has grown from short to long will understand my thought process here, as that ‘mid’ stage is always so awkward.  Hopefully, this means I won’t need to share this stage with most people.

In the meantime, I’m trying to be good and just use semi-permanent dye to not damage my hair too much.  Maria Nila is perfect, great colour smells fab and keeps my hair soft.

Mom Jeans

For the past few years, I have lived in my skinny ripped jeans. And for the past few months, I’ve been living in the lockdown uniform of joggers, tees and sweatshirts.  But last week I felt FANCY and decided to order myself some Mom jeans.

These Jeans from TopShop (via Next) are such a comfy fit, high waisted is not only on-trend but also covers that mum / COVID tum area #winwin.

I love a good Tee, especially a statement tee!  So what better during lockdown than this gorgeous specimen from Kindred.  I might have also bought the rainbow version for the ‘third child’.

Perfect for a Thursday evening at 8 pm and looks awesome with my FANCY mom jeans LOL.

Steve Madden Trainers


Most of you will already know that I have a thing for trainers (seriously who doesn’t?!) and a thing for animal print, so trainers with animal print are definitely going to be a winner.

I already have a pair of Steve Madden’s (via John Lewis) and they have become one of my most worn pair of shoes full stop.  So I decided that as a treat to me (I know, get me being all selfish and s**t) then every six months I would buy myself a new pair of trainers.

Some of the other things I seem to have purchased during lockdown are:

  • Masks
  • Hand Sanitizer Gel
  • iPad / iPhone Charger Cables
  • Lego
  • Batteries
  • Books
  • Shoe Laces
  • Binoculars
  • Masking Tape
  • Jigsaw

Is it just me or has anyone else gone a little online shopping crazy?

Must stop…

Next month…
