Spending Ban Update #1


So I'm nearly two weeks into my beauty spending ban and am pleased to announce that I have not bought any new beauty products! Woop! The only thing I intend to purchase shortly is some cleanser, as my bottle has nearly run out, which is allowed as part of the ban. 

I've found it surprisingly easy so far. I've been deleting any beauty related newsletters/emails very quickly, especially if they have a discount in the title! I also don't work or live in or very near to the town centre, so it's not easy for me to pop in and wonder around Boots or Superdrug, which I think has really helped! Especially as these little babies have been released and I am in total blusher lust! I'm normally a powder blusher girl, but these Bourjois cream blushers are just calling to me! I particularly like the look of 01 Nude Velvet and 03 Rose Tender. These will definitely be one of my first purchases post spending ban.


I think as time goes on the spending ban is only going to get harder! Can I stay away from Boots and Superdrug for another six weeks?! Eek!

If you're on a spending ban let me know how you're getting on!
