NO BEAUTY BUYING | May 2014 Spending Ban

Last month I did a lot more online shopping than I'd like to admit. I've become quite fond of Beauty Bay, placing a total of five orders, and I've also bought a few bits 'n' pieces from other places. Basically, I need to stop shopping while I can still afford to clothe myself. Oh, and in my defence, each Beauty Bay order was fairly small - there's just been quite a few of them. If you want to see what I've picked up, stay tuned for the hauls!

For the month of May I will be on a spending ban. I'm not allowed to buy any beauty products unless I need to repurchase something crucial that I don't have a replacement for (something that I highly doubt will happen). I want to make a dent in my collection, test out some products I've put on the back burner and play with my new bits from Beauty Bay as they arrive. 

I'm participating in two different swaps at the moment so I'll be allowed to buy products for them but that's it. Nothing for myself! Wish me luck, I beg of you. 

UPDATE: Now that I'm out of action and won't be working for a bit (head to my Facebook Page for more information), I'll be working a lot harder to reign in my spending as I will be on Leave Without Pay for a few weeks. Eurgh. 

 Have you ever put yourself on a spending ban? Do you think I can do it? Did you want updates?

  1. I haven't put myself on a spending ban, but I think I really need to with regards to clothing because I seriously buy almost any shirt I see on sale.
    I've been pretty good makeup wise because I've been trying to wear less makeup to achieve clearer skin, so that's my motivation! (Priceline even sent me a "we miss you!" email lol)

    Good luck on your spending ban! But I think buying things for the swap for other people is even more fun! I hope you make a speedy recovery and can get back on your feet soon! xx
