The big 5 - September

So I've come up with a plan to try and stop my spending.  As you know, I can be a little out of control, so I'm attempting to stick to a "one item a week" diet.  There are five Mondays in September, so that's five things I can buy.  Here's what I'm thinking...

First up is NARS Semi-Matte Lipstick in Jungle Red.  Apparently it's Nicole Richie's fave, and if you google it, a lot of photos of Olsen twins come up.  Sounds good right?  I love Nicole, and if it'll make me look anywhere near this awesome I'll be happy.  On a side note, I already own Russian Red by MAC so if any of you own both I'd love to know how they compare and whether you think I need both!

This above knuckle ring from The Bohemian Collective was in my last wishlist but I've been putting off buying it until next month.  I'll definitely be adding it to my collection come September though.

Part of the fun in going back to school is buying a new coat.  I've fallen in love with this asos one and even though I own quite a few jackets and coats with contrast sleeves, I have none in this colour.  Plus it's in the sale, even better!

One thing I've been meaning to purchase is the perfect breton tee.  This one isn't quite perfect, but tracking a better one down is surprisingly hard!  I do love this Maison Scotch one, but it's a bit too pricey compared to £14 at River Island.  I may wait until the end of the month to indulge my stripey side and see a) whether I managed to stick to this regime and b) how much money I subsequently have left.  If you've spotted a top like this anywhere else, please do let me know!

Last up is a repurchase which I debated leaving out, as I deem it more of a necessity than an indulgence.  But then I couldn't really find anything else (perhaps I'm all shopped out?) and I guess a fake tanning primer isn't really a necessity.  This stuff's awesome though and I've nearly run out.  It lasted me from Easter though and isn't too pricey.  Thumbs up from me.

So what do you reckon, can I stick to this?!

  1. This is a really good idea to let yourself still get the shopping 'fix' but not go crazy! I have been on the hunt for teh perfect breton top myself but alas haven't found 'the one' yet. Have resorted to ebay instead! xxx

  3. This is a really great idea, I'm trying to only let myself buy one things a week too. The nars lipstick looks like such a gorgeous colour.

    1. Let me know how you get on! I love the lipstick, I'm just worried that it'll be too similar to the other reds I own. There isn't a particularly local NARS counter to me! x
