Purchase of the Month [MAR] – Nike Air Max Lunar1 Trainers (ASOS)

It is nearly the end of March and that can only mean one thing for me (drum roll, please!) – writing up Purchase of the Month! If you had read my previous Purchase Of the Month posts (found here, here and here), you can probably tell that there is a pattern. Have you had a quick look at those posts? What do you think?

Yes, that’s right. I love shoes. My love for them has taken over precedence when it came to writing up my Purchase of the Month posts. This month is no different. March’s Purchase of the Month is Nike Air Max Lunar1 Trainers. However, this month’s winner has a little bit of a sentimental and emotional value to it. Let me enlighten you the reason behind this.

 My dad had been wanting a new pair of trainers for the longest time. He just doesn’t have the time to go to a shop to get them as, he has been working crazy hours. He had an evening off one day but was too tired to get dressed and go out to buy it. This is the moment when I stepped in, I persuaded my dad to buy a pair online. He wasn’t thrilled about the idea as he is not much of an online shopper. However, he reluctantly agreed (which was a surprise to me!) and we sat on the couch literally shopping for a pair of trainers on ASOS. There were many contenders that dad and I had to sieve through but, in the end only one made it to the basket. When it came to the final checkout stage, I simply took out my debit card and said, “Daddy, I got this.”

 Everyday I’m thankful and blessed for the job that I have which has been keeping my bank account on a high. My dad has bought me many things – small and big and sometimes even surprised me! I was really happy that I was able to treat my dad with his new pair of trainers and it really is the best feeling in the world.

The next hurdle is waiting for the delivery and making sure the shoe fits him and it is how it looked online. Since, I have signed up to ASOS Premier customer, I get Guaranteed Next Day delivery. You can be a VIP customer too! Click here to find out how! The delivery came first thing in the morning and my dad tried it on.

He loved it. I felt relieved and glad. 

For a pair of trainers, they are indeed very stylish and my dad says that it is very comfy and undeniably lightweight. All in all, I can say that he is very pleased with his new pair of trainers.

Certainly this month’s Purchase of the Month has been a little different. What are your thoughts? I would love to hear from you! 🙂

Purchase of the Month [JAN] – ASOS Bellfield Winter Coat

January 2015 is coming to an end and that’s means I get to share with you with my Purchase of the Month! How exciting! Before getting into that, don’t you think that this month has flown by super quick? Bring on February!  Any of you guys celebrating your birthday next month?

Anyway, I went a little off-topic there for a bit! Apologies! Let’s get back to what this blog post is all about! You read the title right? My Purchase of the Month is a Bellfield winter coat from ASOS. Every winter I am always on the hunt for the perfect coat that I could wear on a day to day basis which would protect me from the unpredictable, and moody weather conditions here in the UK.

The search for this year’s perfect winter coat started in October last year. Now you might think this is strange, but I have a few requirements that I need my ideal everyday winter coat to have. This makes the search a lot harder. They are:

  1. Hood is a must for the coat.
  2. The faux fur accessory attached to the hood must not be detachable.
  3. Reasonable pockets are needed.
  4. Must be able to keep me warm and protect me from rain, sleet or snow!

The length of the coat must be long enough to cover my bottom. (Writing ‘bottom’ there reminded me of the minion joke from the movie Despicable Me 2 and I giggled! Let me remind you what that joke is: Click Me!)

Do you think these requirements are bit over the top? Let me know…

Let me tell you, finding a coat that ticks all those boxes is really hard. My search began in the shops where I could physically try the coats on, when I didn’t find the one in the shops, I turned to on-line shopping. After countless on and off hours of scouring the internet shops, I found the one. Not only this coat ticks all the boxes written above, the price that I got this coat for, could possibly blow your mind.

£39 from a huge £65! 

The bargain made the coat even more irresistible and I went for it! I have to say shopping online can be a super hit or the biggest flop, so I was apprehensive till I actually got it in my hand and tried it on. It is safe to say now, that I do indeed love it! A few weeks back, UK experienced and still experiencing a cold snap where the temperatures dropped below the sub-zeros. Happy to report that my winter coat kept me warm and snuggled up and I’m very glad it did!
