Sayonara To September - Yet Another Personal Monthly Summary

September was a bit of a funny month in LouLouLand and it looks as though October is starting along similar lines. I have a few medical things and other bits going on this month, and the big news today is that my godmother has to go back to hospital next week. After feeling more like herself over the past few weeks, last week she started to feel some tenderness in her neck and found a small lump on the opposite side to where her tumour was removed , she saw her consultant and he wants her to have another MRI scan and a biopsy to determine what's going on. Me and my mum went to see her this afternoon and she's been getting out and about, and she's eating much better than what she was but in her heart of hearts she seems really scared that the cancer has came back, we hoping that it's just swollen glands but there is always the big C word there somewhere in the background. We're staying positive though and hoping that it's nothing and that their just being careful.

Sorry to start this post on such a personal nature but sometimes you just need to let things out :( So September, well September was the month where I went a bit mad on ebay. Still I got a lot of bang for my buck so to speak i.e. I got a lot of items for my money!

£14.20 Over

Yes I went over my limit but compared to previous months I don't think I did too badly I was just £14.20 over, which given circumstances and opportunities to shop last month it wasn't bad and it was my best performance since May so I'm pretty happy. I'm still going to try harder in October because I really need to think about buying Christmas pressies and about spending money on other people rather than myself x

I was also pretty pleased with this months Trimming My Stash, I managed to finish 11 items this month including one Project 10 Pan item! I finished a nice variety of items this month including skincare, body care, haircare, and obviously make up :)

Total - 11 Items

I'm there or there abouts on a few things already so I'm hoping October will be just as good, and I would think that there might be a Project 10 Pan update sometime in the next few days ;)

Apologies again for the slightly depressing start to this post, but I promise I'll be back on form soon. As you may have noticed I've been trying to catch up on some of the numerous PR posts that I've had to do, I've managed to get quite a few done but I've still got loads more to come. Over the next few weeks have loads of reviews coming soon including, some make up remover products, some clothing, some beauty tools, some new technology, and later this week I'm going to review a make up product, and I'll be launching a giveaway so that some you guys can have the opportunity to try it too x Thanks as per usual for reading and sticking with me and I hope you have a fabulous October xx
