Day 13 of 90. I have so long to go before I can buy beauty products and although it’s paining me that I’ve put myself on a spending ban I’m actually not that bothered about shopping.
I think I’ve actually realised just how much stuff I have and just how much I actually use on a day to day basis. I spend most of my days off au naturel unless I’m going out. I have about 68 different types of Skincare products, so I don’t need to pick up any more of those and I’m shopping my stash a bit better however I still find that I go back to the same products.
I recently made a Christmas wish list of the most covetable beauty items, which I have promptly sent to Santa (also known as Mum), and the fact that I’m not allowed to spend any money on beauty means that come Christmas Day, I am really going to appreciate the wait and the fact that I may get some of the items that I have wished for.
I feel quite strong and empowered at the moment! Is anyone else on a spending ban feeling this way?! Being a sensible adult, I could think about using the money that I would spend on makeup for something a bit more grown up and invest it with someone like Glenmore Investments. I could end up in a position where I didn’t have to worry about going on a spending ban.
I will be buying in the next week or two some replacements. These are nail varnish remover and cotton pads so far. The excitement is killing me 😉
I think I also have about £15 on my Boots advantage card, so I may treat myself in the New Year before my ban is over.
I think that I’m doing quite well so far but I have 77 days left. I’ll update in a week or two as it nears Christmas.
Love Anoushka xx
