March Madness

(pic taken from we heart it )

Well it's goodbye to the third month of the year already - where the heck is this year going. March saw the return of lighter nights which is a good thing in my book losing an hour of sleep maybe wasn't so good. March saw a big improvement in my foot which lead to my first proper shopping trip since before Christmas - understandably this didn't help my spending diet - whoops!



Boots - Cleanser, Eye Make Up Remover, Leg Wax - £14.51
ASOS - Ring and Nail Polish - £18.00
2 x Tops - H&M - £20.98
2 x BeautyUK Nail Polishes - Superdrug - £3.98
Daisy Earrings - ebay - £3.99
Biotherm Aquatrio Starter Kit - £8.55
MAC Biker Blue Nail Lacquer - £8.10
2 x Issues Glamour - £4.00
3 x Issues Glamour - £6.00
Total So Far - £87.57 - £47.57 Over

Lets put it this way I've certainly made up for my frugal January and February - I went a massive £47.57 over my £40 limit - I had some fun in the real world which I'm not going to apologise for but what was scary this month was that I bought 5 issues of the same magazine - yup that's right 5 issues of Glamour for the Clinique freebies - that doesn't really make them freebies does it ? hmm. Never mind I am going to try a bit harder in April I promise - yet again the new MAC collections aren't wowing me and I've stocked up on skincare so hopefully it should be a bit easier x
Trimming my stash well I have to say I'm pretty pleased with my March total - I finished 16 items

Alva Naturkosmetik Daily Care Milk / Honey Shower Gel 150ml
Laura Geller Invisible Oil Blotting Powder - 10.50g
Laura Geller Spackle Make Up Primer 28g
Clear Beauty Deep Cleansing 3 in 1 Facial Wipes - 25 Wipes
Leighton Denny Essential Remover Acetone Free Polish Remover 50ml
Boots Botanics Soothing Eye Make Up Remover 150ml
Sally Hansen Kwik Off Apricot Nail Colour Remover 150.8ml

The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Creamy Body Wash 250ml
Ecover Lavender and Aloe Vera Shower Gel 250ml

L'Oreal Matte Morphose Souffle Foundation in 110 Ivory Rose - 20g
Lush Catastrophe Cosmetic Face Mask 75g
b liv by cellnique Quench Me Moisturizing Gel 45ml
ELF Brush Shampoo 120ml
Total - 16 Items

Perhaps what I am most pleased about though is that I finished 3 make up items so I have just another 3 to go and I have finished project 10 pan :)
In March my mini challenge was to have a look through my make up and see what I'd been missing out on- well I can certainly say I have found some absolute gems - I will be doing a blog post and an accompanying you tube video sometime in April for you x My April challenge to be honest is more of the same - I have sorted some more things out for blog sale so I will hopefully pop those up next week, and currently sorting out a pile for give and make up, so in April I am basically going to sort my make up out again and see which bits I can live without - I also want to change my lip product storage so hopefully that will be something I can achieve in April. I have felt a little bit bleurgh for a lot of March so I'm hoping April will be better - fingers crossed for a good month for all of us x
