New Years Resolutions

Hello my lovelies,

So both my parents have flu so it turns out I won't be going to see extended family today! Trying not to dwell on the situation, I've decided to do an impromptu 'New Years Resolutions' post - which has come about as I've been browsing the sales. I'm relatively proud of the fact that I haven't bought anything (touches wood), saving my somewhat depleted bank account! I even managed to resist the £29 Jeffery Campbell Spiked Damsels. That, my friend, is what they call restraint. 

Every year I make New Years resolutions. Last year, they were even on my screensaver. They always follow the same lines "be helpful", "try your best in everything" etc. Of course, this year, I'll re-list these as my 2013 resolutions. But, this year, I'm going to try and go on a spending ban *gulps*. The basis of this is that I'm trying to save up for a million and one different things, including a trip to America, festival tickets and an iPad. It will probably take me until I'm 80 to save BUT every little helps, right?

So, I've made a little collage of my motivations when I see something I reaaally believe I want (as practised when I saw the Damsels in the sale today, so they do work!)

There is a catch - there are some exceptions, for me, anyway. Obviously, I'm not going to starve as a result of this, so food etc is exempt (!!). In addition, a new foundation or tinted moisturiser and mascara are exempt as I have neither and that's not good. I'm currently in the process of creating an everyday make up look, as my skin has recently gone terrible and the winter is really taking it's toll on my face in general. Ah.

Are you going to try to go on a post-Christmas spending ban? What are your new years resolutions? I'd love to know and gain inspiration! If you've ever done a spending ban in the past, I'd love it if you could let me know what helped you to not cave in - otherwise I can see this lasting an embarrassingly short time.

Lots of love,
