Spending Ban Update Week #1

Hi everyone :)
I was meant to write this post yesterday but I was having some computer issues! So sick of technology!
In my first week I did really well!
- I only had one Cafe Nero coffee!
- I only bought one beauty product, which was for a giveaway, which I forgot to mention in my original post that I am allowed to buy!
I am still lusting after some things though, I think I'll stick them on my Christmas list though!
Nivea Lip Butter in Caramel Cream - £1.49
This sounds amazing! I love anything caramel scented or flavoured and I really want to get my hands on this! Sounds like it'd be perfect for the cold weather!
Stila In The Light Palette with Free Lip Glaze! - £25
I don't exactly need another neutrals palette but this one looks beautiful! It comes with a smudge stick which I'd love to try out as I'm enjoying experimenting with eyeliner at the moment :)
China Glaze Ruby Pumps - £5.95(Amazon)
My sister in law has this polish and it is sooo beautiful! I'd love to wear it in the lead up to Christmas...I suppose I could just borrow hers to stop me buying it! :D
I hope you're all doing well and I hope to get some more posts up soon as I've hopfully fixed my computer problems!(Fingers crossed!)
Thanks for reading,


  1. I'd love the stila pallete and I've never heard of the Nivea lip butter but it looks delicious!

    1. I'd already entered your giveaway :D xxx

  2. Well done on the spending ban! I'm doing a 100 day one from middle of January - it scares me a bit ;)

    1. Thank you :) I don't think I could manage a 100 day ban! xxx

  3. you're doing really well. I definitely would never be able to last on a spending ban! I want that Nivea lip balm too, sounds so yummy! xxx

  4. I realised yesterday that I'd inadvertently not spent anything for a week. I'm trying to extend that now!

    I love the Stila Palette but I have too many shadows at the moment.


  5. Them nivea lip balms are amazing! Have you tried any other flavours? X
