Spending Ban Update #5

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

This is my fifth week in the spending ban, and there still hasn't been any "casualties" as such. I have spent slightly more money than last week though. Last Thursday I treated myself and the boyfriend to a hot chocolate and doughnut at Krispy Kreme, costing me £6.30. Not a bad price for a treat, anyway. 

Looking at my bank statement I've realised I hadn't spent anything else until last night. I was in serious need of some new jeans and although I despise clothes shopping it had to be done. I ended up getting two pairs, a  hooded jacket and a vest top for £32 which isn't too painful for my purse.

I also bought Lewis a Valentine's present from Hotel Chocolat, but I won't disclose the price because I know he reads this blog. It wasn't too pricey though, as we're going away to Edinburgh over the weekend. Although I did find three pound coins roaming around in my coat pocket so I decided to pick up a bath bomb from the Bomb Cosmetics stall, oops.

My total spendage came under £50.00 :)

This week I'm lusting after the Illamasqua I'mperfection nail varnishes, but at £14.50 each I couldn't justify it even if I weren't on a spending ban.


  1. I am right there with you when it comes to those Illumasqua nail polishes... it's never going to happen (way too expensive *sob*) but they are SO lust worthy.


  2. I feel exactly the same about the Illamasqua polishes. Beautiful, and I'm not on a spending ban, but far too expensive and dupes will no doubt be on their way. I bought a L'Oreal polish today called Confetti which is a really pretty black and white speckle top coat that you can put over any polish you choose, so less limiting in a way than the Illamasqua ones, and only £4.99!
