150 Day Spending Ban: Week 15

Hello everyone. So I have 38 days left. Can I get a woop woop? I feel like I can see the finishing line even if I am only 12 days into my extension. Its been a wee bit of an expensive week. I had to dish out for 2 days travel to London, one for the London Blogger Meet up and the other for filming with Cosmo! I spent about £50 but I had two amazing days out so I'm not  complaining. I also spent about £20 on lunches so all in all a slightly more expensive week but not a beauty product in sight!

Over the course of the ban, I've been trying to use up some products in my insanely over populated stash and I've done pretty well! I have a whole drawer of empties thus far and can't wait to show you them all at the end of the ban, to see what can be achieved! (maybe a video?!) Its really helped me get my stash down to an *almost* acceptable level! Over the next 40 days I still have a lot of products to get through but at the end I hopefully want to have next to no products littering my shelves! I am coming very very close to running out of both cleanser and moisturiser so I may have to repurchase pretty soon. At least I've cleared out the whole of my stash of cleansers and moisturisers! :)

In other news, I did get paid this week, which means I'm out of my overdraft! Yay! I hate being in my overdraft, I worry myself to death so it feels nice to be out of it again. I do hope by the end of this ban I can be completely out of debt, I owe my boyfriend about £400 and my credit card an obscene amount, but every payday it seems to get smaller and smaller so i'm getting there! 

Total spent this week: £100
What I have learnt this week: Travel in this country, by both bus and train is just extortion. 
Lusting after: Dior Amber Diamond highlighter. I see a couple of bloggers have purchased it recently and I for one wanna jump on that bandwagon.

So I finally updated the list! I'm sorry it took so long! You may notice the list is longer... I shortened it down and removed all the blogs that only took part for one week or so - I thought this would make it easier to read and almost like a "hall of fame" - so you can easily see which bloggers finished the challenge :)

  3. You have done so brilliantly at the spending ban, I can't believe you're doing 150 days too! I'm at day 97 right now but going to extend the ban another week to make up for some hauling I did.

    Dior Amber Diamond is definitely on my wishlist too, in fact I'm going to go and add it to my Pinterest so I remember that I can get it soon.
