100 Day Spending Ban Update: Week 11

Here we are, week 11! I'm pleased to say another good week over here. Now... I did find an very exciting website (more on that later) which sold shall we say... Disney make up! I was so disappointed I was on this stupid ban but my boyfriend kindly made a cheeky order for me and said I could pay him back after the ban. I don't know if this is cheating, as it was totally out of my hands, but either way, in my books my ban remains unbroken!

This week I had a horrid cold which did stop me from going out and what not. While being ill does suck, it definitely helps with not spending money. I did pop to Tesco however to stock up on essentials and bought a couple of dvds to watch while I recovered in bed. This set me back £30 but in my eyes its not really breaking the ban as its not beauty products!
Another boring week from me but to me, the boring weeks are the best weeks ban wise!

Total spent this week: £30
What I have learnt this week: My stash has a lot of hidden gems which I haven't even used yet!
Lusting after: The new Benefit Concealer

  2. Well done! You're quite right, DVDs when you are ill certainly don't count! x

  4. Yay! You're doing great. Shopping your stash can really be fun. Glad you found some long-lost goodies :)

    Also, a quick question- not sure if you follow me via Blogger/Google. If you do, have you been able to see my latest posts (the Adele tutorial and yesterday's Look of the Day) on your Blogger Reading List/Google Reader? I haven't been able to see them via Blogger (though I know they were published and they're working on Bloglovin'). Just thought I'd ask, since I can't tell if my followers can see them. Thanks!

    Feel better! xo

    1. Hi Jen :) Yep I am pretty sure they have been popping up on the google reader. Are you following yourself via GFC? You can always see them pop up if you are following yourself if that makes sense, but yeah, I'm pretty sure i've seen them :)

      Delete
    2. Thanks, Marvelle! I do follow myself via GFC and usually see my posts on my Reading Lists immediately after publishing. It's just been the past 2 posts I haven't been able to see on the list. But as long as my readers can see them, that's all that matters. Thanks for taking the time to answer this :)

  5. Well done! Your almost there! What a lovely photo, really would love to go there!

  7. What!?! Disney makeup? Are you joking?!

    You look so pretty in the picture. My husband's best friend is getting married and wants us to go....and my first thought was, "if I'm going to spend all that money traveling, I'd rather go to Disneyland..."

    Way to go on your spending ban! I agree, if someone buys you a gift, then it shouldn't count!

    1. Haha thanks Mel, its all make up you know about ;) Haha. They SHOULD get married in Disneyland *leswoon*

  9. DVD's definitely don't count! I just wish it was summer and all these bugs would go away, although I'm not sure I'll embrace hayfever season haha! Your hair looks so lovely short <3

    1. Thanks Amy, I actually got it cut a lot shorter (this was probably about 6 months of growth). I really liked this length but definitely won't go shorter again!

  10. I am on a spending ban but just kind of made up my own rules.

    1. I made up my own rules too :) I think everyone has their own set of rules catered to them :)

  11. You have brilliant willpower. I gave up on my spending ban(ish) attempt, too many fails >.<

    1. Aww Katie :( I've also had two slip ups! But I think after the sort of 2 month mark, you "train" yourself! It is bloody hard though, but now I can't ever imagine going back to my previous spending.
