Everything I’ve Bought During Social Isolation

I rarely had any sense of time previously and the only thing that kept me on track was my sponsored content deadlines and my morning greetings on Instastories. But even though I work from home, I’ve definitely been feeling like the days just run together. The weekend doesn’t even slap anymore. They say New York City needs to brace for this next week to be the worst and with my anxiety at an all time high, I’ve been shopping up a storm. There’s actually some pretty amazing sales going on right now and I’ve taken full advantage. Since I was forced to cancel my birthday trip next month, I have a whole heap of money that I plan on spending since I’ll probably spend my birthday in my apartment. Instagram is usually the first place to get to see all the new things I buy but for the first time ever, I’m sharing everything I’ve bought during social isolation here first! I’m definitely gonna do a YouTube Video as well, but that won’t come out for weeks. So let’s just get right into what I’ve been buying these last few weeks in social isolation. 


I ran out of a few of my favorite beauty items and decided to repurchase them so I can keep up with my beauty routine. I’m currently on a strict skincare regime of Vitamin C and Retinol to get my hyperpigmentation under control. My products have been doing wonders so I don’t want any setbacks during this time. I’m trying to step out looking fresh and gorgeous when this is all over. I ordered some are Elemis Peptide Nighttime Recovery Cream as well as more Chanel Le Coton Pads. Yes, I already ran through the 100 I ordered a month or so ago. In addition to that I need more Elemis Gentle Foaming Cleanser so I got that as well. Of course I needed to then order my Pixi Beauty Vitamin C Tonic too. Basically my entire skincare routine has been ordered and will arrive in the next two days. 


I’ve been going hard buying new stuff for my home. I’m also currently redecorating my bedroom so Wayfair has been my best friend. I placed a massive home order from Target, H&M Home, Crate & Barrel and Wayfair y’all! I know. I went really hard. I bought the cutest plates and bowls in that perfect nudey pink color from Crate & Barrel. I also bought this cool chair from Wayfair for my bedroom. Yes, another pink velvet chair to tie into my kitchen table chairs. I also got a new dish rack from Target as well as thing cool comforter set. From H&M home I got this modern vase. Since I’m going to be in the apartment I thought I’d go ahead and get some of my favorite Byredo Bohemia Candles. Hopefully they come soon because I’ve burned all of them down to the nubs and candles are my self care. I also bought a new book that I love called Brown Bohemians. The images are so stunning and it makes a great coffee table book. I also stocked up on some more Nespresso Coffee Machine Pods! Luckily you can order the pods online and have them delivered to you. I need coffee every day so I’m thrilled to have my Nespresso VirtuoPlus Coffee Maker.


Thanks to one of my favorite influencers, I bought a ton of tank tops from Target. I love the fit and they’re super cozy! In addition to those tanks, my friends over at Tamara Mellon are sending over these gorgeous sandals to thank me for promoting their recent sale. I can’t wait to receive them. I also splurged and got this cool Oscar De La Renta Necklace of the letter M. I love this necklace and missed on on the Céline version so was happy to find this similar one. I also bought a cool canvas tote from Hereu to take on the first vacation I’m going on after this thing is over!


Here are a few of my favorites and things I have saved in carts all over the internets. I’m sure late one night I’m gonna end up buying most of this stuff LOL. These sandals are all the rage right now and I’m wondering if I should jump on the bandwagon before they sell out. I’m also really close to pulling the trigger on these anthropology statement earrings. Y’all know I love a good statement earring. Check out my jewelry collection video on YouTube!

That video is coming soon and I’m saving everything birthday related for that video. In case you’re looking to jumpstart the economy definitely check some of these things out. I hope you all are safe and well wherever you are. Stay tuned I have a fun Closet Tour video coming to YouTube on Wednesday.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s been shopping up a storm. Is it the smart thing to do? Probably not. But, they don’t call it retail therapy for nothing…. x

    Candles and skincare have been robbing me blind, but If we must be inside might as well make it a whole vibe.
