5 Things Instagram Made Me Buy:


Goodness me, when I started to think of the things that instagram has made me buy I was actually pretty surprised as I've (unsurprisingly) been inspired to shop on far too many occasions by the people and pieces that pop up in my feed.

I don't know about you but I doesn't take much to get me shopping. Whilst studying at university I maxed out my overdrafts and made full use of my loans in the worst way. Purchasing everything from the original Naked palette (that every blogger just had to have), to a Clarisonic Mia just because. Thankfully I'm a little more savvy and my sprees have been majorly curved but that hasn't stopped me wishing after 78% of the pieces that I scroll past on instagram.

Whether it's the perfect Panama hat or the pair of Gucci loafers I dream of nightly Instagram is a fresh place for outfit inspo and tried and tested beauty hacks. Here are five of the favourite things that instagram made me buy...

1, H&M's Moss Knit Blanket

This blanket buy was a super quick one for me. I'd spotted it on four or five instagram accounts over one weekend and popped instore over lunch the following Monday to buy one for myself. Its literally everything I could ever want in a blanket: it's grey ✔ it's super cosy ✔ it's textured ✔ it has tassels ✔ and it's oh-so instagrammable ✔✔✔

It's now available in light beigenatural white and millennial pink. I'd snap up one of each colourway in an instant if I was lucky enough to own my own home.

2, A Straw Hat

So, I have a little confession... I'm never not looking for the perfect hat. My quest for 'the' straw hat is so resolute that I welcome double negatives in abundance. I scour the high street each summer as well as every little shop I see when I'm away on my summer break but I never ever, ever manage to find the one. So whilst I see at least three straw hats a day (during the spring and summer months) on isntagram that appear to be the one they always look a little different IRL. I've purchased at least 7 straw hats simply off how great the gals I see in theirs look.

3, That M&S Jumper

Oh you know the one. Whether you opted for the pink or grey fluted sleeved style it was undoubtedly one of the most popular knits of the winter. I held off from purchasing it for a little bit as I was reluctant to own something every other person I knew also owned but after seeing a lone pink style in store whilst out on appointments I concluded that it'd be rude not to join in.

4, A Diptiyque Fragrance

Possibly the most innocuous and covetable brand on instagram, a harmless Diptyque candle or fragrance is sure to get alllll the likes each and every time. This little gem was so delish I picked up two as, during the long and miserable winter, nothing got me out of bed and set my head straight for the day quite like it. Anything Dipttque also makes for a dreamy flatlay.

5, Topshop's Red 'Maggie' Boots 

As those of you who've been reading my blog or following my instagram (I'm @SarahRoseGoes if you're not already following me) will know, I have a major thing for ankle boots. So it should come at no surprise that Topshop's Maggie boots very quickly became my new favourite thing. Whilst I immediately purchased the Maggie in blush pink, I was unusually cautious about splashing my cash on the insta-friendly pillar box red pair. I worried that I just wouldn't get enough wear out of them, but after seeing 101 ways to wear them on insta I added them straight into my basket and promptly checked out.

  1. Oh, I feel you about the straw hat! Who knew it was so difficult to find THE one? I like the one you are wearing here by the way ;) Oh and that M&S jumper... I visited so many stores but none of them had my size. And once sold out, it never came back online. Too bad for me but my bank account says thanks :D

    Have a lovely weekend xx
