I don’t often make wish lists because I don’t need a lot of things. I’m currently content with all my plants, my cozy spot on the couch with my drawing pad, and having a warm Shiba Inu on my feet. But that doesn’t mean I never buy anything. Before we head out to Amsterdam, I like to compile a list of things I might need. We go every so often and the last time was in December. And now we’ll be visiting the big city in a few weeks. So I figured it would be a nice time to share some of the things I’d like to get. I’ve also found a few things already that I decided to splurge on. So I’ve added my small haul into my February shopping list too!
The time has come for me to take next step on my skincare journey. There’s some redness on my forehead and around my nose that I’d like to banish. I’ve done a bit of research and decided I’d like to try the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% by The Ordinary. I’ve had great success with a few of their items already so why not try one more? I’d like to make an updated skincare post for spring so it would be nice to try this out before then.
There are also a few Lush items I’d like to take a look at but I’m not sure if they’ll be in stock. They’re Valentine’s themed products and we’re going a little too late! I don’t think Super Milk is available in The Netherlands yet but I know at least Almond Blossom will be there.
Sander and I went out to lunch with his parents and we stopped in at H&M after the meal. There I was able to snag this Oversized Denim Jacket for 50% off! I’ve been searching for a heavier jean jacket since I have one for summer but nothing for spring or fall. This one is perfect! The fit is great and it’s toasty on the inside. The weather here has been out of control lately so this jacket will have to wait a bit before it can make its debut.
I also placed an order for Cirque Colors’ Beatnik (which is a gorgeous shade of green) and for Emily de Molly’s Flexible Morality (I’m obsessed with that green to pink shift!). I was worried I wouldn’t be able to buy it since the Winter 2019 holiday season is over but it went up for preorder on Hypnotic Polish and I jumped at the chance. One last purchase I made was from a lovely Etsy store. N1MH has a beautiful aesthetic so picked up a few stickers and a keychain too!
And last but not least on my February shopping list are the books I’d like to pick up. We go to Amsterdam specifically for me to grab the latest issue of Snotgirl and Volume #15 will be in stores. I also have to keep a look out for Koimonogatari. I have most of the other books but I’m missing a few volumes. Can you believe this novel series is over 25 books long?! Most of them are still in Japanese but I can be patient. I also want to start picking up the art books from the TV show Steven Universe. There are a few volumes but I need to start at the beginning with Steven universe: art & origins
I think that about wraps up my February shopping list. There are quite a few things I’d like to get this month! And of course when we go, we have to stuff our faces at Ramen-Ya. I’m so excited and I can’t wait!
