Rebecca Bloomwood is me all over! When i see something i like, i have to have it. I have always refrained from high end designer splurges but when it comes to clothes, make up and accessories, there isn't really a point where i stop and ask myself if i really need it. Its got to the point where i have 10 unused make up bags just sitting in a cupboard(seriously!). I currently have 6 in use mascaras and 8 back ups...i asked myself today, is this really necessary?! I can only use 1 at a time! Sorting through my belongings over the past few weeks has been a wake up call for me. I could easily get to 2010 and not have a need to buy any make up, skin care, moisturiser, perfume...the list goes on! I regularly wear about a quarter of my wardrobe and shoes with a ton of things un worn and still carrying tags. I have easily 50 items that i need to list on ebay some never worn and unwanted! I think today reitterated my thoughts; one of my friends was searching the shops for some wellies for V festival and finally settled on a pair on patterned ones that cost £7.99. I went online a month or so ago and bought a pair of Hunters for £50 that ill probably wear for one weekend and will then be sent to Narnia in my wardrobe.
I love nothing more than a delivery arriving on my doorstep or being handed a bag full of my new purchases but this has to stop. If only till i hit those shops in Vegas!! I dont NEED a new outfit for every social occasion, although it is nice!! Its time to rediscover those hidden gems that I have forgotten about!
I am going back on the spending diet and allowing myself £25 per week for purchases other than my regular outgoings and much need necessities(mainly toiletries!). This needs to be done before i cannot close my bedroom door anymore! I have already placed my colour craft order online and i have a few bits arriving over the next week or so, but that's it. No more!!
Spending diet and project 10 pan recommencing....now!
I am not saying goodbye to my inner Rebecca Bloomwood but merely 'see you soon chick!' Departing Splurge City next stop Sensible Shopper (yuck!!).
