Life Update (flats & spending ban)


I have been finding it tough to blog recently, mainly due to lack of time! If you follow me on twitter you may know my boyfriend and I have been searching for our first flat to purchase since around October time. We had put in 4 offers on different flats, all over the asking price, and still didn't manage to get one...until now that is! I am pleased to say we have finally had an offer accepted on our first property :) Words cannot express how happy we are, I am so excited to finally be able to decorate our own place. Unfortunately this is only the beginning of what seems to be a long process, there is still so much to do! Therefore, most of my spare time has been spent dealing with mortgage brokers/solicitors/estate agents etc. This means over the next few months I may not be blogging so much, however I will try my best!!

So, onto my spending ban. I am now into month 3 (almost 4!) and it is definitely getting tough. It was my friends birthday last week so I did treat myself to a new playsuit for the evening (I justified this to myself because I didn't but a new outfit for my birthday night out - that's fair right!). Other than that I have been good! I have now paid off all my holidays and will need to pay for Glastonbury Festival next month (and most importantly - flat related items!!). I am going to continue my ban until the end of April, but I think after that I will relax the rules a little. I will still try and limit my spending but not so much - meaning new clothes are finally on the horizon!

So please do bear with me, I shall definitely still post regularly just not as often as usual :) If you are on a spending ban let me know how it is going!

  2. I am on a spending ban too, or at least I am trying to be! I don't think it is going quite as well as yours.

  5. Oh wow, congratulations on the new flat! That's so so exciting :)
    I've been on a spending ban since the end of 2013, and am finding it sooo challenging, now that the sun's out so much more lately - I want all the spring/summer clothes I'm seeing pop up everywhere!
    Hope you manage to settle back into regular posting soon xx

  6. Look forward to hearing about all the flat and well done on the spending ban. Whilst I've been good on the beauty buying front I'm spending a fortune on clothes for my holiday next month! See you next week
