1/2 Spending Ban: update


Remember guys?

I am on a spending ban for all make up things.
That means I'm trying to not buy any make up for 100 days, forcing me to blog about all the thing I already own and be creative with it, whilst saving up some money before I run out of it.

50 days have passed and I wanted to give you a little update on how I'm doing.

So I have been shopping with my mom a little bit, which made it tempting not to buy anything. I managed to not spend any money on make up at all, BUT...

My mom was feeling generous and said I could pick some things out and she would pay for it. I'm so grateful for that, so I kind of cheated by picking out a few make up items.

First of all I picked up the Maxfactor Cream Puff Blush in Alluring Rose. I was lusting after this one so much! I'm going to do a full review on this soon so stay tuned!

I also went to the Benefit counter so I will do a mini Benefit Haul as well. I bought a Chanel cream eyeshadow too and two Clinique chubby stick lipsticks. Okay I might have gone overboard but I took advantage of my mom feeling generous! :D

SO technically I'm still going strong with the spending ban - since I've not spent any of my own money on make up stuff. I can't believe how hard it is, really. I didn't know I became THIS obsessed with buying make up...

We're halfway now so I really have to be strong. But as all my deadlines are getting pretty close, I don't think I would have the time to go into town and lust after all the make up in the shops, so that's a good thing ;-)

Lots of love,

PS: I changed my comment section to Disqus, so I kind of lost all my previous comments on my blog posts (it can't import previous Blogger comments, apparently) so yeah, haha, that's that.

  1. Hehe I had no idea not buying could be so hard ahhh but bank account feeling the strain


  2. It's a shame you lost all your previous comments but hopefully you'll like Disqus - I think it's great! Well done on getting half way through your (super long!) spending ban - I know you'll manage the next fifty days no trouble!

  3. Such a shame right? I mean I can still read my comments on Blogger but they won't show up anymore :) so yeah, kind of sucks. :p

  4. I literally just changed to Disqus and am having the exact same problem! But in the long term it'll be better as it's easier for people to know when you've replied to a comment (and we both reply to most/all of our comments) x

  5. I don't know why I didn't do it sooner! ;)
    &thanks! hopefully I do :) x

  6. it's true! I wish everyone would stick to the same platform ;) it's way easier! And oh I see it now, hehe. What a coincidence ;) x

  7. Nah, that'd be far too simple!
    Great minds think alike, right? ;) x

  8. Well since technically your mom bought them for you it really doesn't count as you cheating in my opinion :D. Hopefully these beauty treats will keep you going until the end of the ban x

  9. Well done on making it half way! You have great self-control! Your Mom treating is just that - a treat, nothing to do with the ban! Looking forward to seeing your Benefit mini-haul! xx

  10. So sweet of her, right? The Benefit haul is scheduled for the end of the month (I've got so many posts scheduled already!)

  11. well done !! :)


  12. Hope so! It's so hard to resist :( especially with all these fellow bloggers posting favourites and reviews :D

  13. Your Mum bought them so that's fine (;

  14. That was so sweet of your mom! You're right, it doesn't count hehe. And it also is much harder than it seems to be on a spending ban. I've never tried one but I've tried to "cut down" on my spending and even that was challenging. :-)
