April Spending Ban Update


If you follow me on Twitter or have read my previous post you will know that I'm currently on a spending ban. I thought I would do a little update about how I'm getting on and as I am coming up to being half way through, today was the perfect time to do this post. Now.. the spending ban has been a little difficult and if I'm completely honest I failed by day 2 when MAC by Request went online. The boyfriend said because the lipsticks were online exclusives and the chance of them still being there by May 1st was slim I could order one. So I did and then bumped my order up to free delivery by ordering a second. I just can't help myself. If there's free delivery, I'm going to take advantage. 

The only other thing I have purchased for little old me was a cream, chiffon kimono from H&M to wear for my best friend's hen party, as it was wedding related I felt this would be okay and it was a bargain at £9.99! You can have a look on their website, www.hm.com for the kimono I picked up but unfortunately the colour I have isn't on the website.

I don't think I've done too badly and if this was a normal 'spending' month but with limits I probably wouldn't find it a problem. Some rules are there to be broken though as they say.
I will be doing a review of the MAC by Request lipstick I picked up in early May so keep a look out for that. I might even do one on the old classic I picked up too!

16 days to go........

  1. I'm on a spending ban for lent and must admit I broke it this sunday to order an eyeshadow palette for my cousins wedding, but I let myself off as it was for the wedding. Plus I heart you're allowed to break your lent promise on sundays. Good luck with the rest of your spending ban x

  2. Good luck with it! It doesn't help that every single brand decided to improve their formulas and release amazing new products this year. I gave up my ban and instead set up a monthly budget so at leasts I don't go crazy and spend a fortune. x
