Saying Bye Bye To March and Springing Forward Into April

Well how had your March been mine was a bit hitty missy if I'm being honest I  haven't felt quite with it for most of the month, physically, mentally or emotionally, never mind brighter days and lighter nights are sure to lift the spirits We'll ignore the fact that snow is forecast for Tuesday typical the one day I I have something planned, still I'm not going to let a bit of miserable weather ruin my shopping trip

I guess that's a good place to start with my monthly spends I haven't done as well as I'd hoped this month, a few ebay purchases and a pretty large Boots order - has all lead to a bit of a fail in March.

Models Own Indian Ocean
Wet N Wild Palete - ebay - £9.76
Avon Order - £19.00
Boots Order - £35.93
Catherine Arley Nail Polish - Ebay - £7.03
Nails Wheels - Ebay - £1.99
Total So Far - £81.66

  Yeah so it was a bit of a fail, I did actually make a lot of this back through ebay sales so it probably wasn't as bad as it looks. Again I'm going to try my best in April but my trip to York on Tuesday will be a good indicator as to how it's well I'm going to throughout the month, as I say I have been given some money for my trip, so I'm going to try and set myself a mini limit on how much I spend of my own money.

   I've been thinking hard about doing Project 10 Pan again and I've made the decision that April is going to be the month when I take the plunge and start again. It will definitely be after the York trip (obviously lol) but  I'll do a post and maybe a video and let you know when x My ebaying is going to continue I have a vat of new items up and another couple of batches to list (click here to check out my listings). I'm also going to be updating my blog sale page in the next week or so too, I've got a pile of backups and things that I'm just not using - In the past I've made some big purchasing mistakes used something twice loved it bought a back up and then realised it wasn't for me after all (HD Brow kit anyone :) I'm also going to be listing a few books and things too just to try and clear some space as much as anything. Again I'll do some posts and some tweets when I've updated the page.

    Talking of clearing my space, what about trimming my stash?

  • Lush Potion Exquisitely Perfumed Body Lotion 250g
  • Sally Hansen Kwik Off Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover 150.8ml
  • Denise McAdam Moisture Master Shampoo 250ml
  • Primark Beauty 9 1/2 Winks Extreme False Lash Mascara 9ml
  • Avene Eau Thermale Spray 50ml
  • The Body Shop Rich Plum Shimmering Bath Bubbles 400ml
  • Superdrug 20 Nourishing Nail Polish Remover Pads
  • Aldi Lacura 3 In 1 Facial Cleansing Wipes - 30 Wipes x 2
  • Soap & Glory Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths - 25 Wipes

   Well it went pretty well this month, I finished 10 items including 1 make up item, some nail polish removers,
   and 3 packets of cleansing wipes - I only use wipes if I'm being really, really lazy or if I'm not feeling well and having a duvet day - but the nice weather and the sunshine's meant that I've been taking a lot of photographs for the blog, including lots and lots of swatches, and wipes are a really quick clean up tool.

   Again this is something I am going to continue with in April I really am starting to see my stash pile (crate, basket, etc, etc.) go down, I've also been attacking my Lush stash in March and I'm pleased to say I don't have too much left now in fact I'm even on my last Ruby Red Slippers Bubble Bar, sniff I love this and it was discontinued last year :( I have a Lush discount voucher which I think I'll use to treat myself next month for my birthday.

   So that was my March, in April I have loads of exciting things coming up on LouLouLand including updates to my MAC and Nail Polish Collection posts, some skincare reviews, some haircare, and bodycare reviews, and lots of pretty nails of the days, and I may even sneak in recipe for you. I hope you had a great March if not I hope April is better. Thanks again for following and thanks for being there x
