Red Nose Day and a Spending Confession

Happy Red Nose Day everyone!  I am sure you will agree with me that Comic Relief is such a worth while cause, poverty is on our doorstop but the majority of us don't witness this daily and I feel that Comic Relief does such a good job each year reminding us that it is closer to home than we think.

Over the past 10 weeks I have been on a spending ban as part of the 100 day spending ban challenge and when I think back to how much money I spend on cosmetics weekly, daily, annually it is actually quite scary.  I know I will never stop while I have the means to do so but I will try and curb it in the future.     In the meantime, I don't know if you remember but back at the start of the challenge I mentioned I was putting £10 aside each week so I could have a big splurge in April, I have £100.00 at the moment and I am going to donate half of it tonight for Comic Relief, it is a far better cause to go to  than feed my shopping addiction, but also because last week, I was naughty and bought 3 little pieces of makeup on a certain Miss Makeup Magpies Blog Sale, however, it isn't a huge cheat as I had run out of concealer but I just couldn't turn away from the bargain Stilla Lip Gloss she had there.

So, I confess.

In my defence though, I haven't bought a single magazine this year.  Nor have I had my hair done.  :-)  But I am nevertheless guilty as charged.  Back on track now though.



  1. Awwww you look adorable with your nose on haha! Although I'm guessing that's not the look you were going for haha :D xx

  2. Hey love! I am nominating you for a Liebster Award if you go onto my page in an hour the post will be up! :) x

  3. wow fairplay to you for donating half of your savings to charity, that's so lovely :) And with what you bought, it's really not that bad - I think nearly everyone has fallen off the wagon :)
