An Attempted "Spending Diet"

This month I've come to the conclusion that I should take it easy until a week before Christmas (yes I'm one of those people who procrastinate in the Christmas shopping department) and save up some money to spend on others, rather than myself.
Mind you, I just bought an iPhone and ordered a Clarisonic, so it seems like the wisest of decisions to make right now haha :)

The Clarisonic has not arrived yet, it has been backordered on the site I ordered it from and it should get shipped out on monday. I also ordered a St. Tropez tanning mousse along with it since I've always wanted to give it a try. This now marks the end of my spending era.

I am determined not to spend any money on cosmetics (aside from utter essentials like cleanser and moisturizer - which I am close to running out of) until the new year, and I mean it! I have 2 different foundations, 2 different bronzers and 2 different powders on rotation to keep me busy until the end of the year.
I have also been prudent with spending on clothing since my return from Italy. I purchased a pair of J-Brand denim leggings (which I am absolutely obsessed with) and I would love a cool pair of boots to wear them with but I am sticking to my plan. Perhaps Santa can get me some boots for Christmas ;)

I hope you will not get bored of my blog in the mean time, and I apologize for the lack in posts but exams are creeping up on me and necessary preparations must take place. Next weekend I am hoping to finally get the chance to write about my haircare products of choice - I've been sticking to the same routine for several months aside from changing up the shampoo and I swear by it. I always get complimented on my hair and it always feels soft and smooth. I just got about 3 inches cut off as well, it needed a new shape very badly.
Stay tuned!

What are your plans in preparation from the holiday season?
