End of 100 Days Spending Ban

10:00

Hey everyone!

I'm so excited because today my spending ban ends!
Let's find out if I did any cheeky purchases in the last 25 days and find out what's going to happen next.


So as you have read in the last update, I did kind of fail the 'challenge' already. I couldn't resist buying some little things, but I did want to continue with this. I just needed to save a bit of money so I had to cut the make up spendings because it was getting out of hand.

I am going to do some hauls soon so stay tuned! I'm also planning on buying quite a lot of things this summer when I'm traveling to London, Barcelona and Italy... SO I might do this 100 days spending ban again after the summer holidays, to save up a bit, you know ;)

First there were three little purchases in the last part of my spending ban. I couldn't wait to pick them up until the spending ban was over, because I really wanted to test them out before summer started. You might have already seen them in my Festival Make Up Look post a few days ago. It's the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream which I had heard so much about, the Bourjois Poudre de Riz de Java because I thought it was such a pretty little product to set my under eye concealer and the The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Gel for Face because I was getting a bit more tanned and wanted to try out the Bourjois Bronzing Primer (but they don't have that in stores here in Belgium so I went for this one). Now if you click the link, my tube looks different and there were two different ones in store as well, I just have no idea what's the actual difference between the two because they say the same thing. I think mine is a bit less dark than the other, or my packaging is a bit more new because of the other additions to the honey bronze collection, but anyways. I own it and I've been testing it out a lot! So far so good, I really like it.

I also picked up the The Body Shop Honey Bronze powder, but for some reason I cannot explain, I forgot to include it in the pictures. I'm sure you all know which one I'm talking about. I was so excited when I picked this up as it's a cult classic and I finally get to use it!


I'll do a review on the Bourjois 123 perfect CC cream and the Honey Bronze Gel soon!

Then Ici Paris XL decided to have a 21% off on everything, even limited edition pieces. How could I not pick up the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour powder in Marinière N°02 with that much off the price? I know, I'm ashamed of me too. But look at it!



I'm still happy with what I achieved. It's been crazy how difficult it is for me not to buy make up. It was so confronting!

In conclusion:
50 days I can handle, 100 days I cannot.

Another thing I have to mention (if you mist last weeks Wednesday post) is that there won't be #NoteToSelf posts during Summer. It's hard to find new bloggers every week. At the beginning, people would mail me saying they wanted to be part of it, now I really have to look around for people. I'm going to put it on hold for a bit and see if I can pick it up again after summer holidays. My summer is going to be crazy busy and I've been planning and scheduling a lot of posts already, to keep up with my daily schedule. It's going to be a great one, though!

  3. YAY your spending ban is over! Happy shopping! I don't think I could have done it. Not even for 100 hours. Not even for 100 minutes. Seriously. I'm literally online shopping in another tab as I write this. I have issues.

  13. Congratulations on finishing the spending ban. Although you didn't absolutely stick to it think how much more money you've saved than you would have done if you didn't have a ban at all. Looking forward to all your hauls!
