100 Day Spending Ban: Week 12

Another week, another spending ban update...
Phew, well this week I paid off my holiday. It was a lot and put me right back into my overdraft and onto the limit. It does suck to be back in it, but hopefully come payday I'll be out again :) I also had to borrow £200 off my boyfriend for bills and such but he said I can pay that back whenever, so that was nice of him. 
The good part about having no money is that I'm not tempted to buy anything... simply because I can't actually afford to buy anything! I have £30 to my name so while it sucks to have no money, the spending ban is still very much in tact! 
So a pretty uneventful week, but now I can really start getting excited for Florida and saving up my spending money! 

Total spent this week: I don't even wanna disclose, but a lot! All within the ban though :)
What I have learnt this week: Always look on the bright side of having no money.
Lusting after: The new Sleek palette and blusher

If you are doing the 100 day challenge or want to take part in it, its not too late! Just comment below and I can add your link! Also let me know if you have written an update post on your blog so I can link that :)


I thought I'd include a photo this week of a sort of "hidden gem" of Disneyworld (my inspiration for this challenge - which I would never have been able to afford without going on this spending ban!). People tend to think its all rides and characters but Epcot has some wonderful colourful flower gardens to walk around. So pretty and peaceful, definitely a far cry from the typical theme park people always have in mind :)

  2. Oh my gosh that is a beautiful picture! I have been to Disney, but didn't see this area/park. I went on an almost year long spending ban, almost eight months, but it was a personal sacrifice I made in hopes that the universe will admit me into one of the law school of my choice. It worked! I'm a believer! Maybe that was TMI! I am a new follower, I don't recall if I have said hello on an earlier post! Also, I love the header of your blog. I like blogs that use unique headers w/ images. I feel like I am entering an online boutique.
