hopefully my next food post will be a bit more than sending you to a recipe but i'm better at creating savoury rather than sweet recipes.

as i am currently ill, bedridden, and off school, and can't muster up the energy to even stand up and take some blog pictures i thought i would do a nice easy post and update you all on how my spending ban has been coming along.
i'm now 23 days in, and can honestly say the only money to have left my purse is one pound for something at school, which wasn't optional and is therefore justified! i haven't actually been to tempted at all to buy things yet, although i think the hardest bit is always when the spring beauty and fashion collections come out, which they are just starting to. however, although i started my spending ban on the first of january (post here) the only money i've spent since september has been christmas presents, which is technically over 100 days and pretty damn impressive. but i am going to do 100 days from the first, and maybe even carry it on...
in order to keep myself motivated i have spent quite a while deciding what i'm going to buy once i've saved up and i think i've decided on the camera i want, which is very exciting!
as before, if any of you are currently doing this spending ban or are thinking of starting one please leave your links below, as the positive comments i got on the blog post introducing it (and tweets) have really helped in motivating and i would love to do the same thing back!
|both these things were last season but you might be able to find them in a shop. sorry!|
as one of my new year's resolutions I said I wanted to save up some moneys. i've actually been saving since christmas, but when i saw the 100 say spending ban i thought it would be perfect. it doesn't need that much explaining, but every week there will be a Twitter talk to discuss your saving progress and motivate you for the following weeks. although I've been saving for a bit longer, i am officially starting my spending ban from January 1st, for the new year!
i'll link up Alice's (she has organised the Twitter chat) post on the spending ban here, and if any of you are doing this challenge please tell me!
(ps. i'll have some reviews and stuff up tomorrow, as i'm aware my blog has been very lifestyley recently. however, i am going to attempt to do more lifestyle/diy posts to stop me spending, hope you don't mind!)
