Au Revoir To August

and good riddance! - what a crappy month August was, the weather was awful, I was ill for half of it and my mum was ill for the other half - I have to say I am glad it's over.

There weren't a lot of positives for me in August  apart from having my first ever Percy Pig - Thanks Dawn! but predictably my spending was over budget

Swimsuit - ebay - £9.94
Ultrasun After Sun - ebay - £9.49
L'oreal Elvive Shampoo, Undies - Boyes - £4.20
Superdrug Haul - 2True,MNY,Earrings - £8.97
Stacey Maxi Dress - Boohoo -£10.00
Color Club Nail Polish - ebay - £6.34
Elle Magazine - £3.80
Total So Far - £52.74
+ £12.74

At £12.74 over it wasn't as bad as it could have been I guess, and the majority of purchases were to do with my holiday but I really could have done better, I've also spent a lot on my mum this month to go towards her birthday present, so it's looking as though I won't have as much money for my holidays as I would of liked - I guess the only option is to ebay like a demon lol - so you can certainly expect some new listings over the next week x

You'll already know this if your a regular reader but my other monthly mission is trimming my stash basically me trying to finish as many products over the course of the month and ultimately the year

Leighton Denny Hydra Flex Shield 12ml
The Body Shop Raspberry Shower Gel 250ml
Primark Beauty 4 in 1 Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes x 25
No7 Exquisite Curl Mascara 01 Black 0.23 FL Oz
Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish 100ml
Clean & Clear Gentle Face Lotion 200ml
SBC Echinacea Bath Soak 500ml
The Body Shop Dewberry Bath and Shower Gel - 250ml
John Frieda 3 Day Straight Spray 100ml
Total - 9 Items

This month I finished 9 items which is about the average so far for me this year which isn't too bad to be honest and I finished a nail and a make up item which is always good.

September will be a bit different than normal I go on holiday on the 28th so both my spending diet and trimming my stash will only be up to that date everything else will be added to Octobers lists. I'm hoping to finish a few more products this month, and I'm going to try and keep my spending right down, even though I'm probably going to the Metro Centre on Friday eek - restraint is essential!! On the blogging front I am going to blogging like a demon this month I have quite a few reviews I want to do including an Autumn / Winter essential, a hair product, a couple of skin care products and a few holiday preparation product reviews. In September you can also expect to see the start of my nail polish collection posts, lots of nails of the day posts, the continuation of my budget beauty series, and some pics from my mums birthday :). At the same times I am also preparing a few scheduled posts to keep you amused whilst I'm away - phew I have a busy few weeks ahead so stay tuned and you never know if I hit 500 followers in September you may have a little giveaway to enter. Anyways that's my September planned out largely positive bar a few hospital appointments for my mum, I hope you all have a great month and that we have an Indian summer because August was so bad, fingers crossed, Love and Kisses xx
