Eight Week Shopping Challenge.

Two years ago I started my £10 a week challenge. I lived off £10 a week for 9 months, to raise money for four different charities close to my heart. Don't panic though - I'm not going to do it again! What I am doing is being good, I'm going to cut down majorly on how much I spend over the next two months starting from Monday 10th September. Not only do I spend far too much on new clothes, shoes and handbags that I simply don't need, but I spend money that should be going into my 'flat deposit' fund. I'm also starting my unpaid internship next week, so need to start being thrifty. Anyway, obviously I won't be cutting down on my events (ha, as if I would ever do that!), I'll just cut down in beauty products and clothing and of course I'll still do beauty reviews - I currently have a lot of products I need to review! 

Also, I got fed up with my 'about me' widget on the side bar, so decided to change it. I wanted a picture that when you click on it, it takes you to my 'About Me and Contact' page. I couldn't decide what photos to use, so I asked Twitter...it was pretty much a unanimous decision for photo number four (which you can now see if you look to the top right). So I thought I'd show you all the different photos I had and see if you all agreed with Twitter! Looking at these photos has also made me want my long hair back (it's currently at the length it is in photo two), so I've decided, I'm growing it again. Also, despite my hair looking different colours in each photo, I've actually never dyed my hair! I'm a hair dye virgin, it's all natural - it goes blonde when it's been in the sun a lot, and darker when it hasn't seen much sun. I have magic hair *nods* cool huh.

  4. I'm trying to reduce my spending. :| I'm currently well into my overdraft. ugh ha I mostly end up spending things on meals out, theatre trips and cat toys! lol I generally can ignore the clothes aisle. :)

    I'm trying to learn to appreciate things more and I figure spending less makes me appreciate the small things in life...it helps I only have like £20 a week next term! haha Plus it reduces stress for the future imo if you realise you don't need as much money as you think puts less pressure on you employment wise and you can just do what you love rather than focusing on a high income!

    1. Thankfully I've never had an overdraft, I just don't trust myself with one!
