I’m trying to go shopping-free this month. The operative word being “trying.” But just because I’m not whipping out my wallet this month it doesn’t mean that I can’t window shop and lust after a few items. In fact, there are four items I have my eye on at the moment:
A new month means a new list of items I want someone to buy me … I mean I want to buy myself. And seeing as I was gone most of June for work, I didn’t get a chance to get the items on that wish list either. I guess I have double the shopping to do this month!
Another month means another month of lusting after beauty and fashion goodies. I was supposed to be on a shopping ban last month, but that didn’t go so well. I think I’ll try it again this month, but we’ll see …
Any who, I’m hoping May brings warmer weather that sends me to the beach, so it’s time to pick up my yearly bathing suit. I’ve also been eyeing this clutch for a while and I think it belongs in my life. For makeup – I’ve heard such great things about this lippie and Tarte, so I think these items are a must.
You can shop these items here:
I really hope for my wallet’s sake that I have no items on my wish list one month, but I don’t have high hopes for that.
It’s April! The weather in Boston was beautiful today, I didn’t get tricked by any April’s Fools jokes and it’s my birthday month. April is going to be super fabulous, I feel it in my bones.
I’ve gone a little shopping crazy recently, so I’m thinking about going on a shopping ban of sorts this month. I’ll only buy things if I need them … like a replacement for the pair of jeans I ripped this past weekend. However, seeing as it’s my birthday month, I’ve got my fingers crossed that I might get a few of the below goodies.
What are you lusting over this month? I’d love to hear what’s on your April wish list.
I put myself on a clothing/shoes/accessories shopping ban for the entirety of January, and I’m so glad it’s over! While I liked the money savings, I didn’t like the lack of shopping. A month without stepping foot inside T.J.Maxx (I knew I would cave if I went in) was torture.
Saturday was my first day off of the ban, so I (naturally) made a beeline for T.J.Maxx after breakfast. Sadly, I didn’t find anything at my normal go-to store, but I didn’t let that stop me. Later in the day, I picked up a black/white sweater at another T.J.s that was conveniently on my way to run another errand. And by run another errand, I mean on my way to perusing the mall. I also picked up my first pair of chucks, a YSL Glossy Stain (that Gouldylox convinced me to purchase), an overpriced chambray shirt and this red dress (not in red online anymore, womp womp).
To try to reign in my spending, I’m taking two approaches … we’ll see if either works. I’ve made a list of classic pieces I want to “splurge” on this year (like the nude and leopard flats and the blazer below) to focus my shopping efforts, and I’m planning two more no-shopping months so I can detox from the shopping bug every few months.
So on to the actual point of this post … the beauty, fashion and lifestyle (hola, tea) products I’m eyeing this month. I won’t buy all of these realistically (damn it fiscal responsibility!), but I’m going to grab a couple of these and I just can’t wait!
