Anyway, I haven't just been a bad blogger, I've also been a bad beauty addict. Since I last posted, I haven't done any of these things:
- paint my finger nails
- paint my toe nails
- dye my roots
- do a fake tan
- do my daily moisturising.
- Working hard (my job never seems to let up)
- marathon training (this is taking up so much of my time)
- bizarrely not losing any weight despite the marathon training
- mainly hibernating when not doing any of the above activities!
I've had to think long and hard about how I budget over the next year - it's a question of setting a budget that is realistic, but also isn't over the top. When I was a poor student I used to have a beauty budget of £25 a month and I was quite comfortable with this. However, I know I couldn't stick to that today. Now, I have more expensive tastes and I'm not prepared to compromise. I've decided to set myself a monthly budget of £100 for all beauty related stuff - from face cream to bikini waxing, from toothpaste to haircuts. It sounds like it's quite generous, and I think it is really. I'm hoping that I'll be able to stick to this, with money to spare which will allow for the occasional splurge or I can save it in the house fund... we'll see.
So that's what I've been up to whilst I've been AWOL - I hope all my blogging friends are well and I promise I'll be back this week with some more posts!
By the way, the 'k' button is broken on my keyboard - it's the most annoying thing! Especially as my name starts with a 'k'. I have to paste it everytime I want to type it.... at least it's not the 'e' key I suppose...
Thanks for reading! xx
