Monthly treats : The confessions of a financially unstable female #1

I have had to massively cut back on my spending due to the fact that I am absolutely skint, as a result of this I am now going to be doing one haul post at the end of every month. I think it will be really good for me to look back at and keep a check on my spending as well as a way of showing you all my new treats :) 

The Queen mask ready for my friend's Jubilee BBQ from Men Kind.

Union Jack leggings ready for the Jubilee, not quite sure I'll be brave enough to wear these and if I do not sure what to wear them with!!

 These Union Jack sunglasses will almost definitely be warn weather permitting!

I bought some of these a while back and love how my hair goes with them, my hair is so thick that I couldn't do the underneath so I bought another pack. I used them in my hair in this outfit post before I bought the second pack.

I couldn't resist picking these ones up to trial too.


My new love! I have seen this everyday this week when walking past Peacocks on my lunch hour but have resisted as I am so skint. I mentioned it to Spencer and he very kindly gave me the money to buy it! Isn't it beautiful? The icing on the cake with this skirt, its a size 12!

Three copies of Glamour magazine for the Benefit freebies! I got these from Tesco and used the self scan where there is no one to judge you for buying three copies of the same magazine!

I am very, very impressed with myself this month as I haven't spent much at all. My most expensive item cost £16 and I didn't even buy that myself! Very pleased with myself.

What have you been splashing your cash on in May?

  2. The skirt is amazing and so is the Queen mask! On May I didn't spend much, I only bought some nail polishes from H&M. Can you imagine I didn't have more time to go to the stores? *sigh*
    I must also remember to buy some hair rollers.
    Thanks for sharing lovely!

  9. I am so bad at spending. Well done you for being so good this month. I've actually been pretty good in May as well. Although I had a little bit of a spending spree at the gardening centre. Although I now have very pretty hanging baskets :D xx

    1. I am very proud of myself, I've been very tame!
      Gardening centres can be lethal when trying to resist spending, so many little bits in there that add up to a fortune! x

  15. Oooh I've been eyeing that skirt up too, it's so pretty with its dusky pink and polka dots, I just fear midi lengths as I feel they make me look dumpy. Would love to see how you style it :D xx
