Spending Ban Update #4

Week 4 spending ban update.  I can't believe I made it to week 4! It has went by so fast.  I am going to try do 60 days but if I am able to keep it going longer I will (eeeeeekkk).  

This week I attended Debenhams Beauty Event so with 10% off and a whole shop full of goodies I didn't think I would have been able to resist but then my mum offered to give me money to buy anything I liked to be put away for Christmas, this was like music to my ears.  So last night me and my sister went and I got a mac quad, 2 shadows and Benefit Porefessional.  We also went into Next to look at the NYX range but there wasn't the biggest selection so we didn't get anything.  I still have a bit left so I will either buy more makeup or something for my camera.  

The fact that in 4 weeks I have only been in Boots twice and not bought (eyelashes from my points) anything is a miracle!  I live 2 minutes away from a big shopping complex so this is a task, trust me!

Next week I may have a Benefit event at House of Fraser but dates are still in discussion so I am expecting next week to be a bit easier.  The past month has been hectic and lots of blog events have appeared out the woodwork.  We go months with nothing and now for the past 3 weeks I have had two a week, so maybe not being as busy will actually be a downfall?  Maybe this will make me think about spending?  Good thing about doing the ban now is that if I really feel the urge to spend then I can buy Christmas presents so not to bad.  I started my Christmas shopping in September but only managed to get a few little things so next week I can get stuck into it and indulge my inner click on the shopping basket habit!
