October Shopping Ban

.

I've decided to challenge myself to a shopping ban for 31 whole days, throughout October. I'm going away in November for a few days and Christmas is only a few months away, so I desperately need to stop spending and start saving my money. This is going to be a real challenge for me, as I seem to go shopping with friends a lot and whenever I'm at a loose end, I always find myself looking on the ASOS website. The aim is not to buy any makeup, clothes or jewellery. The only thing I'm going to allow myself to buy is a pair of black shoe boots (if I find a pair I like) as I've been on the look out for a nice pair of these for ages! I'm not at all sure if I'll be able to see this through (it's going to be very, very hard!) but I'm going to give it my best.

Wish me luck!

  1. Good Luck Rach, I think I might join u too if u don't mind - I've got tons of new stuff recently which I'm gonna post on, but I don't NEED any make-up etc at the mo. However, can I get some nude wedge boots I've seen in H&M online now and then start?! Oh lord, I don't stand a chance. Jokes aside, I ran out of toner, so will get that and the boots - then nothing else for the whole of the month! Thanks for the push!! x

  8. Good Luck with your challenge Rachel! I think i could do with a ban sometimes too! There are so many beautiful clothes out at the moment though- i love all of the new winter fashions!
    I have been looking for some black shoe boots too and i have finally found a pair in topshop that i really like. I suggest taking a look in Topshop because they have a lot of shoe-boot styles at the moment!
    Hope your having a good weekend! xo
