It has now been over a month in which I haven't permitted myself to spend any money on beauty, this has been the case, but I have cheated and asked someone lovely to get things for me! - Occasionally. From now on I'm not allowing myself any beauty aside from the beauty boxes I receive, regardless if I pay for the things or my friends/family do!
I've been tidying up recently and I have no storage room left to put all the shower gels, body butters, hand creams, makeup, nail polishes or my beloved Urban Decay Eyeshadow Palettes. I feel as though I should continue with this ban until 12th October 2011 and then try to wean myself off completely. Or continue with it but not so officially, so the odd nail polish would be acceptable provided it's a colour I don't already own, (highly unlikely!) But I'm sure you get the idea. I've decided to list my monthly expenditure on beauty on a new page to embarrass myself into not spending so much. This will go up tonight and begin from today as well until 12th October. I'll also keep it going and update it every month to see how much I spend and try to cut it down for the following months.
It is very difficult to control my spending urges, especially when I see new releases, and are from brands I love. I also noticed my increased interest in fashion because I wasn't spending so much on beauty! (This really has to stop!)
Thank you for all your support, (and your tempting me with gorgeous new beauty items!) and I hope I can restrain myself from any new purchases for a month!
