40 Days Without Shopping – Day 41

Oh my God where have the last 16 days gone?!
So I’m doing ok!!
I had a breakout in Penneys on Day 33, but I haven’t worn anything that I bought yet-so does that count? Nah I know I’m kidding myself, so I’ve decided to keep going until Easter Sunday – who knew that lent was actually 46 days?! I didn’t, but then again I’ve never actually given up anything for lent that I really cared about. Shopping though is different. It’s an innate part of me. It makes me happy, makes my heart race and it puts a smile on my face.
In the interim, I’ve been working out. I’m also on a Fitness Challenge for Lent, so that has really helped take my mind off the shopping. I’m now spending my usual shopping time checking out new fitness trends and tasty healthy menus!

Saying that, I’m really looking forward to Sunday, and am totally going to treat myself to something new…just what is the question 😊

Until next time,

40 Days Without Shopping – Day 2

The Universe is taunting me! I got a delivery today from Boohoo of the final bits and pieces for my friends 80s themed hen, which I am very excited for!! Anyway, included in this was a Golden Ticket. I never win anything.. #famouslastwords Of course I win here 😭😭 10% off my next order. It’s literally burning a hole in my pocket. I so badly want to spend it. Lucky for me the expiry isn’t until April so I can use it after Lent.
Then, to add insult to injury, Miss Selfridge go and have a 25% online sale today! Is this for real?! Am I in a parallel universe?😭😭😭

This is more difficult than I thought it would be, and it’s only Day 2…sigh.

This weekend should be interesting!

Wish me luck,


40 Days Without Shopping – Day 1

Happy Ash Wednesday everyone!

As you will all know, today is the first day of Lent. Traditionally a time when people give up something, or many things, that they really love.

For me, that one thing, is shopping. I love it. I shop when I’m happy, sad, bored, lonely, excited, tired, you name an emotion and I will shop during it. Online shopping is a particularly dangerous habit for me. It’s just too accessible!

To say these 40 days are going to be tough is an understatement, but I’m going to give it a go!

I’ll be updating on a regular basis, so make sure to check back and see how I’m doing.

Wish me luck!!
