Spending Ban Update #2

Wow, 14 days already! 

I am pleased to report I haven't spent a single penny on beauty products this week! Although I have admittedly been running around like a headless chicken trying to get my mitts on something from the new Rimmel Apocalips collection (mission failed). I have a £10 Tesco gift card floating around though so I may put that to use in a few weeks' time!

My total spend isn't as low as last week, since it was my dad's birthday on Sunday and my grandma's birthday on Monday, but I only ended up spending £29 on bits that they really liked. I was slightly naughty and spent £8 on a new Sainsbury's candle, the reason behind that being none of my other candles were burning properly (any excuse, eh?). I also gave my mam and dad £10 on top of their £20 board money to treat themselves to an Indians last Friday. I'm not including the £20 because it's something I have to pay, but hey ho.

Lewis treated me to a meal at Frankie and Benny's on Sunday too, so I saved £20 odd there. Total spendage this week = £47. Not too bad for a week with two birthdays!

    1. Big Bang looks fab! Very, very bright though, so I think I might be a bit too afraid to use it if I bought it haha! x

  8. I shudder upon hearing the words "Spending Ban". Cutting something out completely scares me a ton. Good luck for you.
