Confessions - Money Saving Monday

Hello Lovelies,

I have a confession to make... It was pay day, Dorothy Perkins sent me an email and I broke my spending ban..... Wahhhh! And I was doing so well!!!

I just couldn't resist and they were low in stock in my size, as soon as I started adding stuff to my basket, I just couldn't stop.

Let me show you what I got:

  1. Pink Check Soft Tee
  2. White Aztec Print Woven Jogger
  3. Black Lace Trim Jumpsuit
  4. Ivory Burnout Maxi Dress
  5. Black Scuba Floral Sweashirt
  6. Aubergine Satin Trim Cami
I know, I know so hard to resist! Oh Well! I can always save next month.

Please take a look at everyone else taking part.

Much Love,

I've been shopping!

Hello All!

I have another haul for you and it's a video! Yippee! As you all know I am on a spending ban this month so all the stuff in this haul was not purchase during the month of July.

Please have a look at what I got and let me know what you think.

Much Love,

Money Saving Monday - Why the spending ban?

Hello Lovely People,

'Hi, my name is Abi and I am a shopaholic'. I admit it and I am not ashamed.

I thought I would actually explain why I have put myself on a spending ban this month. No pictures *SHOCK, HORROR*.

My first reason being, that I can no longer fit any clothes in my wardrobe, yes I said it! My wardrobe is ridiculously full. I disgust myself with the number of clothes that still have the price tags on, that I haven't worn, that have been bought on a whim because someone else looked amazing in it so I wanted to look that amazing and that have been worn once and been put away never to see the light of day again.

Now I know I don't need more clothes but working in a clothes shop, in a shopping centre, makes this extremely difficult and I just can't help it.

Second reason is that I am planning to go back to university. As much as I do enjoy working where I work, I want more out of life (cliché much?) I want to have more sociable hours and be able to see my family and friends on the weekends when they are actually free. Anywho, back to the university thing... I have changed my mind a lot over the past few months about what I want to do and I have finally made the decision to go into some type of teaching or training. I still haven't properly decided on which one yet but I am still researching.

My third reason is that I hate being broke by the second week in the month because I have spent my whole wage on clothes... I need to control my spending and from now on I shall be giving myself s budget each month in order to do this (more info to come on a later post).

My fourth and final reason, probably the least important of them all, is that I want to go on holiday! I haven't been for a while and it's a great way to sit back and relax away from home and all my worries. The added bonus that I can go on holiday out of 'term time' so it's cheaper and I can go when it is cold here and warm elsewhere *JOY*.

So, those are my reasons. They may not be everyones cup of tea but they are mine and I want to try my best to keep my goals insight and affordable.

I hope you enjoyed this different type of post, I feel like I need to be more chatty with my readers. I hope you like it. Comment your thoughts below.

Money Saving Monday - Did you say sale?

Hello My Lovelies!!

As you all know me and some of my fellow plus size bloggers are taking part in a spending ban this month and to make it a bit fun we decided to make a blog challenge out of it. We are already two weeks in and I have to say I have found it extremely difficult not to but all the things!

My bank balance really suffered last month and I want to save to go on holiday for my birthday so I just have to grin and bear it. Although, I will have a haul video for you guys at the end of this month for my purchases last month (I know it doesn't make any sense but some stuff didn't arrive on time).

I think I have done alright so far with the spending ban but I just can't resist checking out the ASOS website (in the sale) because they just have all the pretty things!! ASOS isn't the only site I look through for clothes but I need to resist so I don't make myself cry...

Hopefully some of my family members will see this *hint, hint mum and dad*

Money Saving Monday

Welcome to Money Saving Monday, as a blogger I am always looking through websites and searching shops for the next item of clothing or beauty purchase. I recently begun to realise that I don't need all that I am buying and instead of spending I can use the money to save for something that is worth more than clothes, shoes and bags. So let's comb through our wardrobes and empty those make up bags for items we haven't loved much recently and are gathering dust!

Hello All!

I recently found that I have been spending way too much money on clothes and even though I do bargain as much as I can, the costs do ad up.

I posted a comment on a facebook page asking if anyone would want to join me for a spending ban this month and I had a great response so I made it into a blog challenge! (Title invented by Debz).

I have recently been looking through my wardrobe at clothes I haven't worn in a while and I came across this smock dress from ASOS. I know I have worn it before on the blog but I couldn't resist getting it on and getting some snaps of it.

I am loving this challenge and hopefully I will last the whole month.

Here are the other ladies taking part!

Much Love,
