Spending Ban Update 9

The spending ban is very nearing the end, it’s completely changed me. Even though I want things I have developed some will power (ignore last week’s post where will power disappeared for a brief moment haha). I’ve stopped buying make up it seems. I’m so proud of this. I am now keeping my empties and I don’t seem to be using much of it. I think even when the ban ends I really need to resist buying any more foundation, primer or mascara for a while. A girl always needs more lipstick though right.

First things first I did break the ban twice this week. One thing was absolutely necessary. It was this black dress from Asos. Unfortunately my mum’s auntie passed away last week so I needed something long and plain suitable for a funeral. It was only £16.50 and it will be great for work after.

Secondly I went bridesmaid shopping with one of my friends for her wedding. I had decided I wanted to look my best while shopping and decided to do my make up how I may wear it on the wedding day. This involved individual lashes which I didn’t own. As in Boots it’s 3 for 2 at the moment it seemed silly to just buy the lashes. So I also picked up a Revlon Nail Varnish and the False nails I always use. (shown in this post).



The nail varnish is so gorgeous!! I love all the colours in it.

I will be adding on a few extra weeks to make up for my breaks. I’m thinking maybe I’ll go till July. We will see.

How are your bans going?

Love M

    I'm glad to hear you think you've changed your habits for good! I also think this, it really has been an extreme learning experience and one i'm very happy to have had 🙂
