I got more sick with every sour second rate kiss...

Oh boo hoo. I thought I would be able to 100% do this spending ban, or at least last longer than a week! - in all fairness I started it right before I was going away... and whilst packing, I noticed that my wardrobe was lacking the odd item or two...ahem excuses.

Whilst in Padstow I visited the shops in the town centre and there were a lot of cute little one off boutiques. I'm not really a jumper kinda girl, but I really want to wear jumpers more, despite the weather not letting me! I noticed this Vero Moda jumper hanging on the rail, and saw the £10 sale sticker stuck on it, originally around £30 I think! With it only being a tenner, it's just silly to let it go back on the rail. I love the gray scale and the contrast of the black sleeves and neckline.

Moving on, this weekend, (and not intentionally) I popped into Primark, where I spotted these back sandals with metal hardware detail. I love them, they didn't even have my size, but I bought them anyway. I don't have a pair of decent sandals, just some old gladiator type things which are uber comfy but a little out of date? What do you think? I know I'm not meant to be shopping, but I had the feeling (like most shopaholics) that these were selling fast so I just had to get them there and then!

I also nipped to House of Fraser and saw that Nails Inc had an offer that was ending that day, again, for a shopaholic, this is too much to handle. buy two polishes and get TWO FREE!!!??!!! I chose these three for myself; Victoria (my go-to nail polish, this is my third bottle), Motcomb Street and Porchester Square. The sales assistant said for the third one I could pick one from another range, so I did and I am including it with something else and give it to my friend for her birthday. I then popped to Boots as I was out of Bourjois 1 second nail polish remover, I don't class this as banned from my spending ban, as this is a necessity, and whilst browsing the Bourjois counter, I noticed two nail products for £8, again I fell for the offer and along with the remover I chose the 1 second gloss; Gel silicone texture. I will try this and get back to you. 

That's it. I am going to try again with this spending ban malark. Here goes...
