Post-Christmas Haul: Beauty, fashion, and accessories


My first 2021 haul !

1. Rituals: Miracle Foundation

One of my favourite beauty discoveries of 2020 from Rituals, it gives my face such a good glow. Unfortunately, it is soon to be discontinued but I will enjoy it for a couple of months, as I was able to purchase another one recently. Let’s see what Rituals is coming with in the future in terms of foundations. The tone I used is the pink Beige, the lightest colour from the range, with medium coverage.|More information|

2. Rituals: Ritual of Dao, shampoo and conditionner

As really said in the video, the ritual of Dao will, unfortunately, be discontinued soon. I took advantage of taking the last items available at my local Rituals shop.

The good news is: a couple of days ago, I got to test the official replacement of this range which is the ritual of Jing. More information about this new range on Rituals official website. The scent is actually a bit sweeter than the original. I like the smell as well, so I am super thrilled because I will be able to still use Rituals’ body products. 

I have done a bit of research on the Shikakai ingredient and its benefits, and here is what I found:

Commonly termed as the ‘hair-fruit’, it promotes hair growth, reduces hair fall, controls dandruff and relieves skin ailments… The essential nutrients and natural ingredients present in Shikakai is extremely beneficial in improving the texture of hair in winter. Being a natural surfactant, it cleanses the hair follicles, removes greasiness and, makes the hair softer and shinier.


2. Valentino Mandolino Tote Bag

I am very happy about this bag. I have done a bit of research on the internet and this type of colour is really hard to find in the Mandolino range from Valentino (when searching for this bag on the Internet, I only found a black and red version of it, it was impossible to find a picture of a khaki version for the big size, only available for the cross-body version). The original rice was around 130€ and I got it half price. Sometimes, it is worth to wait a bit to get the items that you like to get, to have them cheaper. Here is a link where I could find a little bit of information about this bag, here.

2. H&M Cardigan, Light Jumper, coat and Bow Hair Clip

Both of these tops are made with very soft fabric material and are super cosy for winter time. I have a thing this year for light colors during winter time, maybe because times are a sad at the moment, and I want to cheer myself up as everybody I guess.

As mentioned in the video, I had a crush for this winter coat from H&M. This light beige color is absolutely classy and love wearing it. Although, I would say that this not warm enough for very low temperatures such the ones we are experiencing at the moment in Europe, but perfect for temperature around 10 degrees Celsius. This coat is also available in black and dark beige, available here.

I love this bow and I cannot wait for the next time will be able to party or go to the restaurant to be able to wear it. I was not able to find the exact same one on the H&M website, but here is a similar one.

The bow is so cute 🙂

And that’s it for this haul, I hope you enjoyed watching it 😉 Let me know what are your favorites items and you like!

Loads of love xoxo
