Au Revoir To August

Well that's another month gone, we're officially into the last quarter of the year now, summers gone and autumn is on it's way with a vengeance - it was actually frosty the other night!!!!! Life wise after a tricky few weeks things at last seem to be heading in the right direction. My godmother has had her surgery and she's now recovering at home - they removed all the cancer cells so she's been given the all clear. She's still having to learn to swallow again which is proving a bit scary and she's had a few nasty choking fits but she's heading in the right direction. Things have been thrown a bit in the air with me health wise but I can and will get through this one way or another - I'd just like to thank everyone for their kind words on here, Facebook and on twitter - you've really kept my going through some rough spells in the past month or so x

As per usual I've done the Louise trick and spent more money than I intended too this month because I've been a bit stressed - I haven't counted my Kindle as I'm paying for that on a monthly basis but even so I've still spent more than my monthly limit - eek!

Yes there are lots of sale, and bargain basement purchases but I've still gone over my limit - I'm not proud but again I made some money back through ebay and blog sales so I'm not going to beat myself up over it, I'll just move on to next month and vow to try harder. Speaking of ebay - don't forget to keep checking out my listings I have some bits finishing this weekend and some bits to go up next week including some BNWT AX Paris, Next, Mango, Dorothy Perkins, George and more, plus lots of new and used goodies from Miu Miu, French Connection, ASOS, Per Una and more x You can check out my listings here x

So my monthly spends was a bit of a fail but something I am making progress with trimming my stash, I'm trying to stop buying smellies and bath things, and instead I'm trying to attack my stash and use up what I've got. I didn't do badly this month and finished 9 items.

Total - 9 Items

I finished a nice mix of stuff including some bath and body items, some skincare and a make up item. I'm 3 items down on Project 10 Pan Round and I've got another couple which are just about on the edge. I can see my beauty stash gradually going down and it's a good feeling.

I've really got my blogging mojo back as the month went on, and I'm back and raring to go, I have loads of review posts planned for September, a few food posts, and maybe some clothing posts, so I hope you'll stick around. Oh and I've also started making You Tube videos again so don't forget to check out my channel here, I'll be uploading a favourites post in the next day or so. I hope you all had a fabulous August despite the rotten weather, let me know in the comments what you got up to, and I'll see you tomorrow with a review post xx
