50 Day Spending Ban With Sweetaholic Beauty: WE'RE DONE!

Nope, your eyes are not deceiving you. With Thursday being the 50th day, Jasmine and I are officially done with our 50 Day Spending Ban. I'm really thankful to have had the opportunity to do this ban with the amazing Jasmine. There were many occasions where we found ourselves sending each other angry 'I WANT THIS' Tweet but, of course, we didn't cave...well I didn't. 

I've saved so much through the ban which is really exciting and I also learnt that, yes, maybe I do shop too much. I won't now go give up shopping all together but it may make me rethink some of my purchases a bit. After all, I am a grown up now unfortunately. 

All in all, I found the 50 Day Spending Ban fairly 'easy'. The first week was difficult because I had to curb my impulse purchases and remind myself that no, I couldn't have that lipstick. The next couple of weeks were a breeze. I was super busy with work and commitments on the weekends so I barely had time to think about shopping, let alone miss it! The final week was such a struggle though because there's a couple of things that I really want to buy now so I realllllly counted it down!

I am soo excited to send Jasmine my swap package so she can try my Top 5 Beauty Products. There are some products that I'm really confident that Jasmine will absolutely love so I can't wait to post it out to her, hopefully tomorrow. 

To see how Jasmine went with her ban, check out her final post here. She didn't crack either!

Now that I've finished my ban, I feel like it's time to shop. Thing is, I don't know where! I've kind of lost my shopping mojo. Should I place an order with Beauty Joint, iHerb, Lipstick Republic, Sephora or Beauty Bay? There's so many stores!

Always look your best,

  1. I definitely recommend BeautyJoint- great prices, not too bad with delivery time either. Lipstick Republic is awesome too- got two free eyeliners and packaged so cute last time I ordered. Did you find that you saved lots of money? When I gave up buying makeup for Lent, it was so hard, but I saved heaps
