Furniture can be really expensive and when you move into your first home you definitely don’t have the money to waste. Some things are worth investing a little bit more money into such as your sofa and bed but others can definitely be bought on a budget. This is where amazon came in handy, there are so many stylish pieces at affordable prices.
The first item I wanted to mention was this industrial style Songmics shelf I’ve got in my living room. It’s a great place to store books and DVD’s or even just decorative bits and was a steal at £45.
Another item in my living room is this navy knitted pouffe footstool that adds a little bit of style and extra comfort. It was slightly expensive at £40 but is definitely cheaper than some of the other ones I’ve seen.
After buying my dining table from Next I was stuck for chairs and just wanted something affordable and modern. I looked for quite a while before coming across these grey plastic ones with black metal legs. They came really quickly and are great quality, especially for the price at £44.95.
This Songmics side table I found matches the shelving unit perfectly, is a great place to store a few magazines and adds to the industrial theme throughout my house. It was a great price at £34.99.
Wearing a sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun is extremely important, especially during the summer time. However, having oily skin makes this extremely difficult as most sun creams tend to be really greasy and make my skin look awful.
Neutrogena’s Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock sinks into my skin extremely quickly due to its non-greasy formula and leaves the skin with a matte finish; this means that it does not clog my pores and cause me acne like other sunblocks. It also means that my makeup lasts longer as my skin is less oily, bonus!
The cream comes in various SPF values up to 100+, therefore you will be able to find the one that suits you. So if your in the market for a great sunscreen, Neutrogena’s ultra sheer dry-touch sunblock a brilliant alternative to ones from higher end brands. Unfortunately it is unavailable to buy in the UK, however if you order it online it retails at around $10 which isn’t bad at all, especially for something that works so well.
Avon never fails to impress me; their affordable products are always amazing quality. This nail varnish is no different, it dries within thirty seconds (which is perfect if you’re as impatient as me) and leaves your nails with a glossy, streak free finish. It also lasts at least a week before chipping, which is always a plus. Mine is in the shade ‘Ballerina’ however I think I may purchase another one of the six gorgeous shades they sell.
