Hello and welcome to another edition of I Bought a Really Good Thing, except this time it's a stunning mash-up of things I love, things I need and things that have been selling like hotcakes over on heatworld (read: Molly-Mae Hague's favourite gym leggings and TikTok-approved hair growth serums.)

So grab a cuppa and get ready to scroll through my curated round-up of fun things to buy on the internet this month. From a glitzy, feather-trimmed top made for Christmas parties to Sophie Habboo's all-time favourite cream blush, here is all the shopping-inspo to get you through December and beyond...


SHOP: what to buy this month, according to a shopping editor

Black Sequin Feather Trim Crop Top

Feather-trimmed ery-thing is having a moment this winter and here is the proof. This fun top is perfect for last-minute Christmas plans and gets bonus points for being on sale.

Cult Beauty boxes are normally pretty great, but this one is quite frankly outstanding. I've had my eye on the Vieve Skin Dew for the longest time, so it would be rude not to.

Ugh, the cosiest, cuddliest, snuggliest knit which is perfect for layering this winter. Congrats, ASOS.

My gym never has enough barbell clips and I can't wait to feel hella boujee bringing in my own pink pair. It's the little things.

Bearista Mug 10oz

The only acceptable vessel to drink your Praline Cookie Hot Chocolate this winter. Available in Starbucks stores across the UK for a limited time only.

Rodial Frosted Pink Liquid Blush

Nearlyweds host and Made In Chelsea star Sophie Habbooswears by this cream blush for that 'lit within' look and I have been well and truly #influenced.

Teddy jackets have me in a chokehold this winter and this H&M beauty won't be around for long.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind 4-In-1 Perfector Glow Foundation
11 of 21

This promises to give all the glowy benefits of Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter but at a smidge of the price. Trust me, it's just as good.

Ultra Mini Ankle Length Faux Fur Boots

The strongest dupe on the internet for the UGG Miniby a landslide. Stun.

Morphe Color Pencil - Sweetest Tea

The very lip liner that all the girl's from this year's Love Island couldn't stop wearing and according to Siânnise Fudge, is the perfect shade for autumn. At just £6, I 100% agree.

Double Strap Bra - Midnight Blue

I can't stop buying things from Adanola and next on my hit list is this chic sports bra that will go with all my leggings.

I haven't stopped wearing these Bluebella pyjamas since I got them. They are so chic and make me feel like I have my life together.

Chunky Chelsea Flatform Ankle Boots

My most worn boots at the moment and they look way more expensive than they are. I salute you, M&S.

Yankee Candle large jar - Snow Globe Wonderland
21 of 21

Their highly-awaited Christmas candle has finally arrived and it's possibly my favourite Yankee Candle scent, ever? It is a fresh and addictive Christmassy fragrance that fills the whole room.
