No-buy October Week 1

Hey guys, I thought I'd do a little summary of how No-Buy October is going.

Well, it's not been without it's challenges.  Last night my straighteners died :(  And since it's no buy October (and I simply can't afford it), I'll be having frizzy hair until I can afford another set.  It's not going to be easy as I used these around 5 times a week... :(

As for makeup, I haven't bought any :)  I haven't really had the urge too either.  To be honest, I look at my makeup collection at the moment and feel almost embarrassed, I definitely have too much stuff (the curse of most beauty bloggers)... so when I visited my friend last night, I took her a little bag of makeup to cheer her up :) She seemed really happy with it and it certainly made me feel good to get rid of some of it :)

All in all it's been a smooth first week.  Makeup wise I've been rocking a very simple look (mostly because I haven't been getting up in time to spend the gazillion hours on my eyes I usually do!  I've been focussed on my signature eyeliner, 1 light shade of eyeshadow (like Chanel Fauve for example) and blusher (foundation of course).  I'm hoping to have more time next week if I can get to bed earlier, but where's the fun in that :p

Here's a couple of pics from my week too :)

The many faces of my next youtube video... I say 'next'... I'm still not sure if I should upload it :S

Matilda standing on the box of stuff we're donating to charity looking all cute!

We went over to our friends house last night, I had great fun doing really dark eye shadow using my new Chanel single eye shadow, it's sooooo sparkly!  It'll be great applied wet during the xmas/new year season as it's so pretty and shiny!

So that's kinda how my week has been and filled with a no-buy.  The worst bit is my straighteners breaking... it feels like everything at the moment is money money money... first by us needing to go away for a few days, then our car needing £600 spending on it, now my straighteners... always something I know :)  Ah well, we can't let these things get us down, it's just stuff after all :)

  6. You're doing well so far!
    Just typical your straighteners broke now though! But at least your hair would be free from damage for a month or so! :) xx
