Diary of a Spendaholic 32

 Saturday
Topshop - £37
Boohoo - -£15
Holland & Barrett - £5.05
New Look - £5.26
Cheapsmells - £9.80
So I was good all week and then had a temporary blip in town.  I've been loving slouchy printed t-shirts at the moment so couldn't resist buying a Wildfox-esque one in the Topshop sale and also managed to track down this dress which I couldn't stop thinking about after seeing it in one of Stacie's instagram photos.  I think it was a little overpriced, but I tried buying a cheaper alternative from boohoo which I really tried hard to like, but in the end I decided to just return that and spend the money on the one that I really wanted.
I hot-footed it down to Holland & Barrett to get some charcoal capsules which are apparently a good remedy for bloating (if you saw this pic you'll know why I need them) and whilst I was there I nipped into New Look where I got 25% off a chunky necklace.  Which I also think I spotted on Stacie.  I'm a serious stalker when it comes to that girl.
Finally, I was given a little hair styling treat at a salon where they used a really nice salt spray on me that didn't make my hair feel crispy and didn't leave it in a matted mess.  I know, as if I need any more texturising products, but I'm weak.

Sunday
TK Maxx - £66.98 (although £50 was a gift voucher....so £16.98)
I was given a voucher by TK Maxx as a gift for some blogging I'd done for them (more on that next week) and my instant reaction was to treat myself to a bag or some shoes.  But, I'm sure you'll have noticed, I've bought lots of bags and shoes lately, so decided I'd be good and buy something for Ed's birthday with it instead.  So this morning I woke up with the intention of going down there and picking up a photo I'd seen in there for him.  Only, it turns out I'd seen that weeks ago, and we all know what TK Maxx is like.  It was gone!  Instead, I treated myself to this which yes, is a little bit naughty, but something I'd seen a while ago online but would never spend £50 on.  Plus buying something for the house isn't too bad is it?  And to ease my guilt a little, I did manage to find something to buy for Ed's birthday too.

Total for the week: £74.09 but because I feel bad I'm deducting money I made from my blog sale (which is still running!) so £59.09And I'm ignoring the fact that Coco cost me a small fortune down the vets because, well, that was a necessary spend.  Thank God it's payday on Tuesday.

  1. Oops! Naughty week but I LOVE the print you bought- Alice in Wonderland is my favourite, oddly enough... It's my payday tomorrow and I am SO excited for it. I am too broke at the moment! Buying a car will do that... xx

    1. At least it's a big, important purchase you've made! I waste an obscene amount of money on pretty much nothing x

  2. I love your spendaholic posts! I'm constantly on a bargain hunt, I almost don't enjoy spending unless I'm getting money off... The Topshop dress and the wall print are great buys :-) xx

    1. I loved the Wizard of Oz one, just not sure I could justify buying two? And I'm not that bad! I only really bought a dress and a necklace! x

    1. It felt a little more grown up spending it on something for the house, and nice to treat myself to something I'd never normally buy x
