Cold Turkey June

Good morning all!

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was starting a spending ban for the entire of June, absolutely no spending whatsoever, so I thought I’d tell you how i was getting on so far and what I’m lusting after!

I feel that as I only have 3 posts to write a week it would be a waste to write about it weekly so every few weeks I’ll give an update. I’m hoping to continue the ban further than June but at the rate my wishlist is increasing I’m not so sure that will be achievable!! Maybe I’ll give myself a limit to spend at the end of June, and restart it again for July?!

I’ve so far not bought any cosmetics or products of any kind, so firstly lets congratulate me on that amazing feat! I’m actually enjoying using up my stash as I’m finding lots of half finished things that I can easily finish and get rid of, which is ultimately giving me more space that I desperately need.

I have however had to buy a few extra clothes for work, I did buy some initially that I thought would tide me over for a couple of months until I could justify buying more. But unfortunately as the lab is hot, long sleeved tops are out on account of having to wear lab coats, and vests aren’t allowed cos of the whole bare shoulders/cleavage thing.

Sooooo I had to hot foot it into town and pick up some more tshirts that are acceptable in the work place.

The top 3 are all from New Look, and I managed to get them all for £5 when they had a ‘Tshirts for £5’ day and then student discount so that was pretty good!

The stripy tshirt is from Dorothy Perkins where I also picked up a black and white leopard print tshirt too, both were £10 and I got my 15% student discount too. So although I technically broke my ‘no spending’ rule it was pretty important to have clothes for work and I didn’t stretch that out too far!

Obviously having been shopping I saw a massive amount of stuff that I want….siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh.

Most importantly, I need some new trainers for the gym and I’ve also got my eyes on some Supra type trainers.

I’ve got my eye on a specific pair in particular that I’m sure you will have seen, but here’s a photo collage of what I’m lusting after at the moment!

(none of these images are my own obviously! Otherwise they wouldn’t be on my wishlist…but if you click on them it will take you to the original link, mostly from google)

Mmmm pink Nikes!!

Infamous Illamasqua Maneater lipstick, saw it, tried it, loved it, need it.

Antipodes Manuka Honey Mask, love in a product!

Naked 2, the only palette I’m missing from the Naked collection.

This is actually my image! Origins Make a Difference Gel really did make a difference, it’s high on my wishlist again as a definite repurchase.

This is OPI Bond Girls Liquid Sand in Jinx, just look at that beautiful coral with gold shimmer. I have the miniature version which is not going to last at all, I need the full one!

I am hoping my American friend will be able to send me one over as a gift…but not too sure now the international rules have changed.



Following on from the OPI theme, I am still lusting after these 5 polishes from their Bond range back around Christmas. I need to get my hands on Moonraker, Die Another Day, Live and Let Die, Casino Royale and You Only Live Twice.

These have been on my list for so long that at the end of this month I think I’ll have to purchase them just for sanity reasons!

What are you guys lusting after at the moment?

My brain has suddenly gone crazy lusting after everything I can’t have.

I have £15 of Debenhams Beauty points to use by the end of this month….would you buy the Illamasqua Maneater lipstick, or the pricier Urban Decay Naked 2 palette?
I need somebody to decide for me!!!

Here’s hoping that going ‘Cold Turkey’ will mean I can pay off my credit card bills and start afresh.
