Products I regret buying – #1

fashion items 1

How many times have you bought something and thought hang on a moment, that ain’t right or I wish I never bought this. Well I have found myself in that same boat again and again and this week I will be naming and shaming. To begin this “regret” post series, I will start with “Beauty & Fashion items”,

1. Green platform 2&1:2 inch heel from everything £5 – I bought these shoes for work, I loved them like I don’t know. They were sooo comfoy, and stylish but only after 1 WEEK the entire heel had disappeared, I mean I may have worn them every day for 5 days, they may have only been £5 but still I expected at least a month out of them not 5 days. I was so disappointed but then again you know me I get over it quickly so I have decided not to buy such shoes from everything £5 again.
2. Plain high waisted trouser from everything £5 – These trousers I did not even have a chance to wear them, they came looking ratchet. I didn’t even bother complaining because sending them back will cost me more than I paid for them. Another lesson for me not to buy such trousers from them.


Don’t get me wrong, I am not dissing everything £5 because I have in the past bought shoes which I still have a year on, I have even bought other trousers from them but for some reasons these kind of shoes and this type of trouser are no good hence my resolve to stop buying such items from them, granted they are very cheap but cheap don’t necessary mean really really bad quality.


3. Tartan dress from Miss Rebel – Now I love their items but this one dress is too flimsy. I could not believe it, I wore it and it felt really good and looked really nice but the colour just seem to come right off the dress and onto my skin which is NOT accepted. Because it was cheap I would have expected colour to run during the wash not onto my skin whilst wearing it. So this one I am not sure I will be buying dresses anytime soon from them but jackets now that I will continue to buy because they have wonderful items.
4. Maybelline foundation – I thought this was a good foundation when I wore it but after a while he just stopped making any difference of my face in terms of I still managed to sweat it as if I didn’t have any on.
5. Stick on nails from poundland – ok I know what you thinking but poundland goods are not always bad, they really do have some really nice and cute items which have lasted me longer in the past but these damn press on nails just tooo unreal I mean felt like wear plastic which I cut myself from the milk bottle (not cool).

That’s it for part #1 of products I regret buying. Look out for the next post on products I regret buying gadget items edition.

    I regretted buying a pair of 70$ shoes that were glittery and beautiful. Unfortunately everything I owned became glittery and I had a blister….

    • June 5, 2014 / 12:00 am

    That’s too bad about Maybelline. I have never had a problem.

    • June 4, 2014 / 9:22 pm

      Thanks Christine, their mousse is fine but the fit foundation nope it don’t work for me x

    I feel your pain about the maybelline foundation,I’ve had so many bad experiences with makeup! But I guess you live and learn and stop purchasing certain items.

    • June 4, 2014 / 9:21 pm

      Yep it live and learn indeed, thanks Kasi x

    Aw those shoes look so cute, that’s too bad. I have a ton of items I regret buying – mostly clothes that looked great in the store and awful at home!

    • June 4, 2014 / 9:20 pm

      Thanks, I hate when that happens you buy take home and it’s completely different or you don’t feel it anymore x

  11. June 4, 2014 / 6:22 pm

    Stick on nails are definitely not my favorite. I’ve tried a few different kinds and they all feel the same to me.

    • June 4, 2014 / 9:20 pm

      I am starting to think its best to do my own nails or professionally than still on nails, as I used to love then before but now!!! Not so much x

    That’s too bad about the shoes, I would say to take them to a cobbler (the guy I go to has saved numerous pairs of heels from oblivion) but you would probably have to spend more on the repairs.

    • June 4, 2014 / 9:19 pm

      That’s why I didn’t take them to mind because if that. I will give them to family in zambia when I go as they are cheap to fix there x

    that is too bad about the shoes. I have never really been a fan of stick on nails either.

    • June 4, 2014 / 9:18 pm

      Thanks, still on nails I loved them when I couldn’t get a decent manicure etc but now I will be painting my own nails x

    Don’t you hate it when you spend hard earned money on something and it isn’t right? It kills me. I have several things like this. I just now need to get rid of them….that’s another story! 🙂

    • June 4, 2014 / 9:17 pm

      I do really hate it lol thanks for stopping by x

    I haven’t bought anything from everything £5 yet as I am wary of exactly what the product will look like, but the dress with the colour coming off on you is awful! I hope you complained about it! I would of done

    • June 4, 2014 / 7:40 am
