#NoBuyJanuary - Update 1

I've been tempted by but resisted the Aromatherapy Associates sale and today's one day pop up sale over at a beautiful world - so far so good I reckon!

As you can see by the bathroom cupboard I showed you last week - see here I have loads to use up! This is only one storage space in my home too..

I've also decided I'm going to limit lunches I buy at work and bring my own in the days I'm at work. I've pre-ordered (with Christmas Amazon vouchers) The Little Book of Lunch - which I'm hoping will give me some exciting lunchtime options to brighten up my day!

I do have a huge list of wants this week. I'm planning on going back to these lists once my ban is over and seeing if I still want to buy..





If you are doing a spending ban how's it going?

  1. It's great that you're doing one, I think I should probably be on one myself! :p The lunch idea is great, hope it goes well! x

    1. It's been surprisingly easy so far! Keeping my beauty boxes helps I think. I'm looking forward to receiving the book x

  2. I've been adding bits to my Amazon wishlist over the last week and the Weleda Sea Buckthorn range is on mine too! x

  3. And another one for Weleda Sea Buckthorn here! Have had to virtually strap my hands down to stop me sneaking over to the ABW site this morning for their flash sale x

  4. Ah fab idea. I spent enough over Christmas so have been resisting the sales..luckily for me there's not really anything that I want or I may have caved by now. Wow your list really is huge, but fab! :)

    1. Thank you. I've seen a couple of recipes from the book in magazines & thought it looked a good one to have as I always seem to have sandwiches at lunch x

  7. Your wishlist looks amazing! Although I'm technically not on a spending ban, I am avoiding all the lovely sales on at the mo in a bid to use up some of my beauty stash before getting anything new. The ABW was so tempting though but luckily for my bank balance, they sold out of a few things before I could get my credit card out! x

    1. Thank you! I just went a bit crazy! I'll probably look back and not even get a quarter of the things! x

  9. The bit that I love about your wish list aside from the sheer size of it, is that it includes not one but two Tom Ford products, you have expensive taste ;) I took a look at the ABW sale but have so far been very restrained and not spent anything Xx

    1. I know! haha. I own one Tom Ford Santal Blush (on my second bottle) but usually buy it on 15% off days. Me too! x
