Beauty Ban and Wish List

Hello beauties!

I have decided to go on a beauty spending ban this month! I spend way too much on beauty related items that I rarely get to finish a product. Therefore I am not allowed to buy anything beauty related unless one of the following applies:

1. I run out of the product and have no other alternative.
2. I receive a gift card - I have a few that I am waiting to receive, therefore I am allowed to purchase beauty items with these (should this be allowed? I don't know!)
3. The products are purchased by someone else as a gift for me.

It is both my birthday and Valentines day this month so I don't think it should be too hard, as I expect I will get a few beauty items, but we shall see. At the end of the month I will post what items I have managed to finish, if any!

As I said, it is my birthday is coming up and so I thought I would make a little wish list. For my main present, I think I would like to get a watch, I just can't decide which! Please help!! I am loving rose gold at the moment, hence why there are so many, but I just can't decide! Does anyone have a Michael Kors or Fossil Watch? Which do you think I should get below, from 1-10?

watches
Michael Kors gold tone jewelry, $195 / Fossil jewelry, $115 / Michael Kors ceramic jewelry, £199 / FOSSIL yellow gold jewelry, £115 / Michael Kors face jewelry, £200 / Michael Kors brown jewelry, £219 / Michael kors jewelry, £219 / Michael Kors rose gold jewelry, £199 / FOSSIL link jewelry, $135 / Michael Kors Mk8096 Rose Gold Watch, $392

I have also made a wish list for other items that I am really liking at the moment. So friends/family/boyfriend if you are reading this, take note ;) Kidding!

wish list
Rebecca Minkoff ink leather handbag, $195 / THOMAS SABO heart jewelry, £43 / Smythson Azure Blue Leather Iphone Case, $158 / Prada Candy Eau de Parfum, 30ml, £40 / O.P.I Original Nail Envy Natural Nail Strengthener, $34 / BaByliss 2285U Curling Wand: Amazon.co.uk: Health & Beauty, £15 / bobble Water Bottle (18.5 Oz) : Target, $14 / MARC BY MARC JACOBS Funda Iphone D2 4g Warpikat Iphone Co Green, €31 / Kindle e-Reader with Wi-Fi, 6" Display, £89 / Ted Baker Metallic Croc Large Flapover French Purse, £79

This is not a complete list, but a general idea of what I would love to purchase right now. I would really like a charm (not the one pictured as I couldn't find one I wanted on Polyvore), also I need a new purse due to losing my on NYE, but again not necessarily the one above. How pretty is the peach bag?! LOVE IT! Its a shame its so expensive.

I know the bobble water bottle is very random, but I do not drink enough water throughout the day and thought this may help! I have tried to keep the beauty items to a minimum as this is all I spend my money on, but I wouldn't say no to any :)

What are you hoping to purchase this month? Has anyone else gone on a beauty ban?

Lots of Love

  2. My friend has a rose gold Michael Kors watch, I feel like it may be the first one on the top row but I'm not sure! It's absolutely gorgeous. Out of the list you posted I prefer the 1st one and the 3rd one

    1. It's so hard, they are all so gorgeous! I am worried about some being too big on my wrist so I think I am going to opt for a smaller one xxx

  5. I love all the watches and couldn't possibly pick a fave! Really want a Michael Kors watch :(

    Love all the things on your wishlist. I tried Prada Candy for the first time tonight and now I really want some :) Saw the Ted Baker purse in Selfridges at Christmas time and seriously considered buying that exact one, the whole collection is gorgeous!
    and I've wanted to try Nail Envy for ages!

    I hope you get lots of the lovely things on your wishlist :)

  7. I had a fossil watch that was pretty nice, but I've been dying to get a Michael Kors watch. I love all his stuff (and would love it more if I could afford it!). A girl I worked with had one that was white with gold trim and it was really pretty :) Good luck on the beauty ban!

  11. I think you should go for watch number 3, it's simple and classy at the same time! I love it! :) I'm currently trying to save money, not spending much on beauty items, and as you're doing, trying to finish products before buying the new ones!
