60 Day Spending Ban - Week 2

♠ 1 - Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara
Every time Maybelline releases a new mascara, I'm first in the queue! I know this has been around for a while across the pond but now it's over here in the UK, I need it in my life!
♠ 2 Revlon Lip Butter in Wild Watermelon
I've been lusting after this shade all spring, I need this for summer as a matter of absolute urgency!
♠ 3 Green Day American Idiot Converse All Star
Thanks to RockNRollerr's recent post about the new Green Day range of All Stars, I'm now raging with lust for these. That's right, raging.
♠ 4 Moleskine City Collection New York Journal
There's a 50% reduction on these Moleskine's online, and I love this range of city themed journals, with street maps inside and the cutest plane ticket design on the front!
♠ 5 Holiday to Las Vegas
Me and the man need a holiday. If we had the money, I'd be taking him to Vegas and kicking his ass at poker.
♠ 6 The Hangover Part III
I don't care if I have to go by myself, I need to go and see this movie.

It's been two weeks since I suddenly announced my spending ban, and surprisingly it's been easier than I imagined. Probably because I only left the house three times. In case you were wondering, I don't include travelling to town under my spending ban purely because I already have a bus pass that lasts me until August.
So I've made no purchases this fortnight against my spending ban! But that doesn't mean my addiction has waned, not by any means, as the above wishlist will tell you. It's also really not helping that Superdrug have their 3 for 2 on cosmetics now... thanks guys, just what I needed. But so far, I've resisted. Whether I'll be able to resist any longer is another matter!

  1. I'm on a spending ban too, but thankfully life has been so busy that I haven't had much time to look at things and be tempted.

    1. Yeah I think we chose the right time to start it, there's too much going on to consider spending! x

  2. Oooh, new maybelline mascara! I think you're doing great with the ban, I keep doing odd months of no-spend but I suck at it *zero willpower*. Good luck with the rest of it!

    1. Guh my thoughts exactly 'Christ I'm gonna have to fork out for another mascara...' XD Well good luck if you choose to start up again, practice makes perfect! x

  3. I'm on a spending ban too, it's far tougher than you'd expect! xo

    1. It is? Somehow mine's flying by, I just don't have the time to be bothered with spending, but saying that, spending bans always seem to cause my makeup to start running out, I'm low on every damn thing I put on my face now! Grr! x
