75. Lifestyle // Spending Ban Update

I have a confession to make... I have failed my spending ban spectacularly! I lasted three weeks. Three weeks without buying any clothes and make-up. Now, I think that's pretty good. Not great, but pretty good. 

So why did I give up, you ask? Well, I needed a vest for work. Just a simple black vest... £5 from Dorothy Perkins. But as soon as I'd bought it I wanted to buy more! I spotted a bag and asked Shane if I should get it, he obviously said 'no' so I left with just the t-shirt, but as soon as I got home I ordered the bag online! *faceplant*

And it was a downwards spiral from there! I've ordered a few new things that I actually needed. Well, maybe not desperately, but I certainly feel that they will 'improve my life' or something like that. Here's what I've been buying lately...

My beautiful new camera! I bought this Canon PowerShot SX500 IS in Argos on Friday as I was fed up with the shoddy quality of my blog photos! I can't wait to start using this camera to get some great, professional looking shots.

I bought this Sleek contouring palette after some recommendations for a few beauty bloggers on Twitter. I used it for the first time yesterday and I love it, I'll be posting a review of it within the next couple of weeks!

Here are a few other bits and pieces that I've picked up over the last week. At the back of the photo you can see the gorgeous burgundy handbag that I spotted in Dorothy Perkins! In front are my new Nicky Clarke straighteners and Babyliss travel hairdryer which will both come in very handy when I'm at Shane's. I also bought up a few little necessities from Superdrug and, as I'm trying to eat healthier, I bought this funky packed lunch box from Amazon which has loads of little compartments inside for me to keep all my healthy snacks.

What have you been buying recently?
What's on your wishlist?

Lots of Love,

  1. Internet shopping is the devil's work.

    Also, I'm super jazzed about my button being in your sidebar. Send me yours please, don't forget.
    And I'm trying to bring the term 'jazzed' back. Pass it on.

    1. Oh crap! I totally forgot! I will get it to you next week, I'm totally JAZZED about it too ;)

  2. Well done for trying and well done for lasting 3 weeks!
    Better luck next time, eh? :-)
