Hey guys! I’m absolutely gutted that I missed my first post of Janblog yesterday :( But honestly I had the WORST day, from start to finish it was one of those days where nothing was going right and by then end of it I had to have a huge cry, one of those cries that pour out a lot of the stress, and exhaustion (and one that I secretly relish sometimes because I really think those great big cries can help). Anyways…onwards and upwards! So on to the review-
Can I just ask how we’re at the 21st of January already?! Time is FLYIN’!
So I mentioned that before my SB would start, I did a cheeky splurge on both Illamasqua and Sleek. All for good reasons of course! I did go a LITTLE bit over the top with this haul, mainly because it’s two orders worth (hey they offer free delivery, what's not to love??). But also because as one of my lovely Instagram followers said, Illamasqua really do know how to to put on a SALE!
Hello fellow beauty lovers!
Following on from The Money Book post, yesterday I ordered what I had been waiting for (SLEEKS NEW COLLECTION OH MY GOODNESS ITS GORGEOUS) and then set about thinking how long I wanted this ban to be for. Now 1 months of wages was weak, two months a good start…but THREE MONTHS OF WAGES UNTOUCHED AND STRAIGHT INTO SAVING? Now that is what I deem to be an achievement! And coincidently yesterday started off 101 days of no spending (till April payday!)
You may have seen these brushes floating around the blogosphere, and of course when I saw them I had to pick them up! For just under £2 each, these brushes have been reviewed as wonderful alternatives. I really wanted to try them out a little before I gave my two pennies, and here I am! The reason this is part 1 is because I have ordered another set but it’s yet to arrive ._.
Now I’m no expert in skincare. Not by a long way off. I put my hands up and admit I am always drawn to the makeup isles and counters more than the skincare – but this could be changing. I think on the whole I’ve been blessed with good skin, not acne prone, not oily and not very sensitive. I am however prone to dry patches, have uneven pigmentation and horrendous dark circles. The last two can be ‘temporarily corrected’ with makeup, but I know paying a little more attention to my skin would probably help in the long run!
Regular readers of my blog will probably know that a little spending ban is coming up (two days till it starts). This isn’t out of the blue, I’ve been wanting to start managing my incoming and outgoings for a while, but never actually sat down and thought about how to do so. Some people are fantastic with money, saving every penny and only spending when they absolutely need too. Other’s like to treat themselves and others, buy nice things and get tempted by ‘free delivery if you spend £X* offers. Can you guess which category I fall into?
