My only negative this month again has been the lack of make up - I keep switching around and using different things I really must try to use a few bit consistently to finish them off.

In October again I suspended my spending diet but I will be resuming it in November and going back to my £30 a month limit I have a few bits on order which I won't count but I really need to get back on track. Christmas is less than 2 months away now so I really need to be concentrating my finances on buying stuff for other people rather than buying so much stuff that I don't really need - I have so much stuff but I really can't stop buying argh! November shouldn't be too bad my Mum is buying some stuff from MAC as part of my Christmas pressie and I have so much stuff to do at home this month (including about 6 blog posts I have been meaning to do :))
shopping trips should be extremely rare. I have a £5 Ruby and Millie / No7 voucher to use but I'll try to but something super cheap with it maybe I'll be good and put it towards some Christmas pressies who knows ;)
Anyways wish me luck again


  1. Well done on using so much stuff up in a month. I'd never manage that! It's really annoying that you can't use the Boots vouchers on gift packs otherwise that would be a load of xmas presents sorted!!


  2. I have had a few disappointing months I was up to 20 plus products a month a few months ago but I am slowing up I wish I could finish more make up, up though

    @loveaudrey - I didn't know that I thought you could :( you can't use them at the same time as your advantage points either which is a pain too

  3. well done Lou, you finished heaps! it must feel good :D

  4. good job girl!! ^_^ FYI - mentioned you in my blog post for inspiring me for my first FOTD! ^_^ *Hugs* hope you're doing well girl!
