1 Week Spending Ban Update!

Tuesday, 8 January 2013

Although it has been over a week since I started the ban, I did want to give an update on it.

So, why is it that as soon as you decide you won't be spending money on make up, special offers just pop up everywhere you go? I have been steadily avoiding make up web sites because I just don't want to risk it but, I am subscribed to most of them. Which means, every day I will get numerous emails telling me about products that are on sale, half price, 40% off, free delivery... you get the gist.

It's so frustrating!

But, on the other hand, have I spent any money at all on beauty related items?


Yes, I say that with a big grin because I feel like I really have accomplished something! If I can get through one week, I can easily do 100 days! Right?......

 I am sure this time next week I will probably be sulking at having missed out on an amazing offer.. but then, I am sure an even better offer will come about as soon as I finish this ban. Either that or, everything I want will be limited edition and sold out.

As you can probably tell, yes I am kind of having withdrawal symptoms. But I will get over it! I will get through this just like everyone else who has got themselves into this madness!

Have you had any thoughts on trying this '100 Day I Am Completely Crazy Not Buying Makeup, Being A Beauty Blogger' thing? Let me know your thoughts!

  2. Exactly. I have no problem not going into town but the problem lies with online shopping! It has been difficult avoiding it. Although I am kind of glad there has not been a really 'amazing' offer anywhere that I know of. Lets hope it stays that way!
