Shopping and intentional living aren’t exactly two words that seem to go together, but I believe there is a way that these two notions can live harmoniously...

For the past twelve months I have been on a mission to downsize, minimise and de-clutter my belongings. This has meant that I have given thought to everything that I own, and decided whether to keep it in my life or get rid/gift/donate/recycle. It also means that I have given intentional thought to everything that I have purchased and brought into my life, thinking hard about whether or not I actually need x y & z, and how it will impact my life. This has brought about loads of amazing positives, most notably the fact that I have less to tidy, clean and store, and I have more space, time and let’s not forget - money! 

Now, this isn’t to say that I never buy anything and that I am no longer a fan of fashion, beauty and home wear. It just means that I am a hell of a lot more intentional when it comes to shopping and bringing new things into my life. One thing that I like to do is create little wish lists. So whether I see a new top, some summer perfumes or piece of furniture, I write it down in a list on my phone. This way I can keep track of everything that catches my eye, without impulsively bringing new things into my home. I can come back to the list after I’ve had time to reflect and if I no longer feel as though it would add value to my life, then I delete it off the list. However, if I find that after having time to think about the item, I still want to purchase it, I can do so guilt free, knowing that it was an intentional decision to do so. 

With this in mind, I thought that I would share with you a few things that are currently on my Summer Beauty Wish List. This is a collection of items that I have had my eye on of late, however, they will remain on my list until I decide whether or not I want to welcome it into my home. 

I have left links to all of the items below in case you would like to read more about them or add them onto a wish list of your own!
