It was tough and I have to admit I was bought a few things this month but I've proved to myself I can do it :) I've already made a purchase this month but my mum has bought me the one thing I wanted from the new MAC collections - expect a couple of posts on some MAC bits :)
This month I read a book by Avis Cardella called Spent in it she discusses the term Oniomania - no it's not about root vegetables, Oniomania is the clinical name for someone who has a compulsive desire to shop i.e. me but I've proved to myself I can show restraint I just need to keep at it x I CAN DO THIS!!!


  1. Oh I am so gonna read that book. Well done with your monthly spend. I should prob do that. I may do it in the back of my notebook.Tee hee

  2. Well done Lou thats brilliant, its really hard to restrain yourself. Since i've found out about baby i've been so much better with buying things, its been really good for me x

  3. Well done that is brilliant going using so many things up. I am really trying but getting nowhere xx

  4. I'm finding it hard too, Lou. But you are doing very well. Much better than me anyway.
