No Buy February – Kind of Successful

This is a bit late, it was meant to go up last week but apparently my scheduled post didn’t even save. Anyway, after the sales of January I decided to have a no buy February. We’re going on holiday in April, though it was originally going to be in February, and I bought a lot of things at the end of January for this so I wanted to save a bit for some spending money too.

I did set a few rules, the main one being this was for beauty and fashion except for the Red Nose Day t-shirts. I get one every time they release them and they were Disney this year so I had to get one. I did plan on buying a couple of things for my room, some final things for organising my wardrobe space and some plant pots that I’ve been meaning to get for over a year now, but I ended up getting none of them so I thought I’d do a post that has everything I bought in February, or rather everything that isn’t an essential thing that I bought in February, and I think I did pretty well!

After Christmas Shopping and Sales Haul

Last week was a bit of an odd week, I started out with one of the bugs going around and ended up with sinusitis so sorry for a lack of posts last week. I’m hoping the antibiotics will kick in and everything will go back to normal this week as I actually have the next four weeks worth of posts planned and some of them photographed. Starting to feel organised finally! And with the final deliveries from my post Christmas orders arriving last week I thought it was time to do a post on everything I got.

I think it’s about a month from my first order but some of them took a while to get here and I thought I’d put everything in one big post. It’s a big mix of everything from home and beauty to nerdy figures and some are full price but I wanted to get them with Christmas money from relatives. If anything is still available I’ll put a link to it and I’m pretty sure that most of these will be getting their own review posts so if there’s anything in here you want to see first then please comment and I’ll move them up the list.

Mini ASOS Haul

This is just a small haul, I did buy more but I was extra organised and actually started on my Christmas shopping, and I did end up missing out on the advent calendar I meant to buy as it sold out but I’m happy with the few things I did get. Earlier this week ASOS had a site wide 20% off sale so I decided to get some things in it, including the first advent calendar of the year. Or sort of advent calendar. I have a question for any of you who get these twelve days of Christmas style advent calendars; do you open them in the lead up to Christmas or on the actual twelve days of Christmas which actually starts on Christmas Day? I’m undecided on when I’ll do mine but there’s plenty of time to decide and I just wondered what any of you guys do.

As I left this order a bit late in the day I did forget exactly what I’d bought so it was a bit like Christmas opening it and not sure what I’d got besides the advent calendar. Do you guys do that too? Make man order late at night or when you’re only half awake and forget what was in it? I should really stop but I did save nearly £10 on the advent calendar which made it even better value.
