Spending Ban Update #2

Hey Lovelies,

So another week, another spending ban update. It has now been a month near enough since I started my ban.


The lusting of beauty products is getting stronger now... so much so that I have set up my own want/lust list on my phone... it's pretty much a MAC list of eleven eyeshadows but I'm sure there will be other additions as the time moves on.

Whilst we're on MAC, last week I made myself a little basket of everything I wanted, the grand total of that basket was well over £100!! I quickly closed the little X in the corner of the screen and ran away from my laptop for five minutes to regain myself.

My main lust this week has come in the shape of a highly hyped bag, the Zara Mini Shopper, to be exact this one...

How pretty is this bag? I've seen it on a few blogs and bloggers instagram and my love is strong. It looks a good size for day to day life and I think a pop of colour in my life would be good as I wear a lot of dark colours. So far our love has only gone as far as popping on the Zara website for a good five minute look at it but this week I'm going into Birmingham to meet a uni friend for a bit of food and a shop so I may have to go be brave and say hello in person.

The other lust in my life has been the new Limited Edition Real Techniques Brushes.

Three brushes that I'd love to own in my collection. I have heard a lot of good things about these brushes and as I love the Real Techniques brushes that I own I definitely think I'd love these too.

There it is, my second update... I'm thinking of continuing to do these updates every other week, so that you all know how I'm doing but its not too repetitive.

Who else out there is on a spending ban? How is yours going? 
Till Next Time,
Clare xxx

  6. Every once in a while I try spending bans, but they only work for about 2 weeks? Good job keeping up with yours! The bag is definitely beautiful!
