Memories Of May

Well that's another one down, we are officially half way through the year now -isn't that a scary thought I got a Christmas catalogue through the post the other day that's how scary it is!
Well May as expected was an interesting month for me I turned 33 and to make up for it I shopped like a demon eek - needless to say I went miles over my monthly spending limit - I actually stopped counting after this

L'oreal HIP, and Maybelline - ebay - £11.98
Wet N Wild Palettes - ebay -£12.92
OPI and Essie - ebay - £20.88
InStyle Magazine -£3.70
ASOS Order - £26.32
Elle Magazine - £3.80
Glamour and Red Magazines - £4.80
Barry M Nail Effects - Blue - £2.99
Shampoo, Toner and Love Your Body Renewal - £14.45
Ring and Earrings - Peacocks - £7.00
Primark Haul - £18.00
Easy Living Magazine - £3.70
Body Sprays, Nail Polish - Boots - £10.09
Stopped Counting -eeek
Total So Far - £140.63 ++++++

Yeah embarrassing eh I probably in reality spent double this - some of it was birthday money but still. So as you can imagine in June I am going to do my damnedest to get back on track - I have a few hauls to come of things that I actually ordered in May so they won't count but in June I am back to my £40 a month limit and I am going to seriously try and stick to it.

Trimming My Stash was also a bit of a disappointment in May although I managed to complete Project 10 Pan I only managed to finish 7 items

The Body Shop Rainforest Radiance Shampoo For Coloured Hair -250ml
Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Facial Wash 50ml
Boots Botanics Soothing Eye Make Up Remover 150ml
Imperial Leather Foamburst Shower and Shave With Nourishing Cocoa Butter and Vanilla 200ml
The Body Shop Divine Calm Heavenly Shower Gel 200ml
Models Prefer Hands Free Light Diffusing Foundation - Medium 59ml
Bourjois Coupe de Theatre 2 in 1 Mascara - 51 Noir Exceptionnel - 9ml
Total - 7 Items

I definitely need to try harder in June - I've started making the mistake again of starting new things before I've finished old ones always a big mistake!
My monthly challenge for May was basically to get more organised and sort my stash out - I have to say I have definitely done that - my blog sale updates have been proof of that but the updates are coming to an end now - everything else on my unwanted pile is going to give and make up - I already have one carrier bag full and I have a few more cupboards and drawers to go. I have also been having a wardrobe sort out and I've started with my ebay listings agin so don't forget to check out my updates in the side bar :) My challenge for June is to be a good blogger and attack all the coming soon posts in my sidebar I have beeen promising some of these posts for over a year no so in June I'm going to get some of them done :)
I hope May has been a good month for all of you out there I've really appreciated your input and your clicks on the follow button this month it's given me a new zest for blogging and lots of fresh ideas - thanks guys x


  1. I think what you're doing is a really good idea! I'm trying to do the same - set myself a spending limit and STICK to it... man it's hard! (especially if you read lots of beauty blogs and lust after new things every day like I do! lol) One clause I've created for myself is that anything I make by selling old clothes/bags etc on ebay is extra money that I can spend above the spending limit! ;) It's meant I've been more motivated to sell, cleared out a lot of my wardrobe and sold unused clothes to someone who'll appreciate them. It's surprising what stuff will go... I even sold things with minor stains and holes.. I just made sure I photographed the defects in detail and bam! They sold!
    Anyway GOOD LUCK with the limit! You can do it! :)

  2. Thank you so much my love for such a brilliant comment x It's a tough thing I must admit but I am going to stick to it Good Luck to you too x
