So if you follow me on twitter, you will know that on saturday I broke my makeup ban! :-( I was doing so well! I dont know what came over me! I had managed 27 days of not purchasing any makeup! I totally blame these two posts that Lily did. Here & Here and any posts that anyone has done on the blush 'Head over heels'!! :-)

You see, where I live there isnt a Topshop, and I go through phases of ordering things online. I like to break it up a bit because otherwise people think I am made of money with the amount of things I get delivered to work! :-) When in Basingstoke last Saturday I decided to take advantage of the selection of shops and 'pop into topshop' to just LOOK at the makeup...next thing I knew I was handing over my card at the till for the above items! Then I was greated by Tom outside...the words 'Well you've failed' were said to me....I'm not going to lie....
 I FELT AWFUL.

To justify this little blimp in my makeup ban... I am not actually going to use these items till September (as I only had 5 days till the end of the ban) And I definitley will not be buying anymore makeup in August. If Im honest, It hasnt been too hard being on this makeup ban, and from now on I think I am only going to buy makeup items if I do really need it, not just for the sake of it... (ok I didnt really need these purchases but we'll ignore that fact) I do want to downside the amount of makeup I have, Like Sarah put in this post, I only have one face, why do I need all the slap!

Much Love

  5. Aw what a shame! I banned myself in july and august but as I went on holiday my boyfriend said, you can buy makeup there, but you're not aloud to open or use them until the ban is over, and let me tell you that is harder than not being able to buy it!xx

  28. I was tempted to order online but they dont always have everything in stock which is a pain. Maybe you could get someone who does live near one to pick up some items for you x

  33. Ha, its not so much clothes for me as I think some items in TOPSHOP are way overpriced for what they are in regards to the clothing! x

    ReplyDelete
  34. Maybe see if they have it online? If not get someone who lives near one to pick some bits up for you and then you could own some new makeup! x
