150 Day Spending Ban Update: Week 14

Hey everyone. Another week, another update in my spending ban.
 Most of the ladies taking part in the Spending Ban finish tomorrow! I'm so excited for them, but also depressed that I am just hitting my halfway mark! 
Its been another boring week. Me and the boyfriend were going to go to the zoo, but the weather stopped us. Its been miserable! 
Aside from that I spent £10 on ingredients for cookies and a cheeky Cosmo magazine (this was an essential however, but thats for another post ;))
I get paid this Friday (woohoo!) so will hopefully be able to crawl out of my overdraft again after getting back in deep after my paying off my holiday. I then have 2 paydays left before I go on holiday and finish the ban!! YES! Let the saving commence :)


Total spent this week: £10
What I have learnt this week: Overdrafts and credit cards SUCK! 
Lusting after: The new Sleek Showstoppers palettes

This weeks photo to try and "motivate" and inspire me to not spend is one I took last year of Cinderella's castle. I really like how it came out :) The countdown officially begins with 9 weeks til I go! 9 weeks til I can spend again! I'm planning on hitting the drugstores and Sephora the very first day! Haha

  3. This is a great photo! I have a different problem, though. I have the money but my hubby doesn't have the vacation days :( So even though I thought we would, we probably won't be going to Florida this year :*(

  4. You're still doing so well! I put up a new post a couple of days ago about mine and I have to admit I failed in the most epic fashion. Back on it though until the end of the month.

  5. Well done. I think I'm going to have two weeks off and re start in may with L. I love the castle. Saving will be worth it. Think how much make up you can get. I spent $240 in target last year. They have the best skinny jeans! M xx
