100 Day Spending Ban | Week 9 Update

Another week has gone, did I break any rules?  What have I learnt?

1.  A Recap

My rules:
  • No spending on ANY make up or skin care.  No exceptions.  I do welcome free gifts or samples though.  Note: during this span I shall have at least 3 Glamaboxes (one more Glamabox only) coming in, so that can keep me entertained!
  • Every single day I survive this ban, I will put HK $100 into my Fun Fund.  When the ban is over, I can treat myself well (perhaps some Burberry or Guerlain Tom Ford make up??).  :D
  • My 100 Day Spending Ban starts on 1st of April and shall end on 9th of July.

2.  Fun Fund (Week 9: 27 May - 2 June)

$4,800 + $700 - $200
= $5,300

i) FeelUnique,

£9 off £55 spent made me spent.  Ordered two blushes, a skin care kit, and a toner.  Not too bad, as all of them are on my wish list for quite a while and this was quite an amazing discount.

ii) Embryolisse and La Roche Posay,

I had read and watched too much of the Serozinc and Lait-Creme Concentre.  Found a place that sells authentic fresh stock at a very reasonable price so I picked up both of them... No regret.

3. Lesson Learnt

None.  Getting out of control day by day, plus I never learnt from my mistakes/weakness! >.<

4. Wants or Wishes

I will write these down weekly, and after the 100 day spending ban I will look back and see what I really will buy.  I suppose this is a good way to see how unnecessary some of my desires are...!  I am limiting myself to add one wish per day only, is that considered self-control, too?

Shiseido Perfect Oil
Dr. Douxi Mandelic Acid Essence 10%
Dr. Hsieh Mandelic Acid Home Peeling 10% (Taiwan shopping list!)

Edward Bess Black Sea Mousse Foundation (I don't probably need another foundation added to my wish list, but the beauty look book blog always intrigues me...)
Stila Convertible Palette - Cool, Warm (Wanted it ever since Vivianna talks about the Cool one in her video)
La Mer The Eye Concentrate

5. Other updates:

1.  Shop my stash!  Blog Sale!

2.  Recap of last week's posts:

  • My iHerb/Real Techniques haul - new duo-fibre brushes!  
  • Who doesn't love seeing make up look with red lips?  Not Me!  
  • Have you ever get more excited with the gift with purchase than with the actual products you paid for?  Yes me, in this Nip+Fab and Macadamia Natural Oil loot.
  • Final update of my May Journal.  
  • (Links will be updated later as I am blogging on my iPad blogger app)

I will be relaxing my ban a little when I'm away on vacation at Taiwan.  As long as I do not buy make up I count myself succeed.

Have you tried LRP Serozinc or Embryolisse LCC?

Beautiful wishes,
Lazy silly Jacq :")
