Good morning guys and welcome back to my blog. Today’s post is all about a collective haul I recently filmed for my YouTube Channel. I haven’t filmed a collective haul, or a haul of any type in quite a while. I feel like I buy bits and bobs as and when they catch my eyes, so things don’t really stack up as much as they used to. My shopping habits have definitely changed, I used to be all about the big splurge but now I weigh things up a little bit more and buy a little bit more carefully. Think that is just a by-product of growing up!
When it comes to shopping for clothes, I used to love the sale section. I used to spend so much money on so many ‘bargains’ only to get them home and never wear them. I’ve slowly been learning that it is worth spending a little bit extra for an item I adore and will get lots of use out of. I am also trying to downsize my wardrobe and have a capsule wardrobe of sort, so when I am buying items of clothing I am trying to be wise and pick up staple pieces. The tops I picked up in this haul feel like tops I will get a lot of wear out of.
Homeware shopping is still fairly new to me, it wasn’t something I paid much attention to until recent years. I’ve been living with my parents for my entire life, and only moved out when I got married 9 months ago. It was as I was moving out where I got a little bit more interested in homeware, I wanted to make my new bedroom cosy and pretty. As I currently live with in laws, I don’t really have the need to decorate the whole house so homeware usually either relates to bedroom furnishings or items for my ‘one day’ house. We’ve bought a house and will aim to move into it next year, so every now and then when something catches my eye for my ‘one day’ house, I pick it up. It feels more affordable to buy things bit by bit rather than all at once. In this haul, I had ‘my one day’ house on my mind mostly.
The final part of my haul is of course, makeup .I’m not really sure if much has changed when it comes to my makeup shopping habits. When it comes to makeup and beauty I still have a sweet tooth that can never get satisfied. However I think I do think things through a little more than I used to, and don’t impulse buy as much as I used to. In this haul the products I picked up are ones I have had my eye on for a while, which makes me feel like I will get more of a use out of them. I really just don’t impulse buy half as much as I used to, although recently I breached that habit when the Fenty range dropped in the UK. More on that coming soon!

I feel like I am starting to enjoy making videos again, so if you have anything in particular you’d like to see do let me know and I’ll add it to my list of things to tick off. I would love to do a Q&A, but I do feel a bit nervous about it as I actually need questions for that and don’t know if I will get any! But do let me know your feedback on both this video and future ones. Speak soon, Tanzina x
