I Failed My Spending Ban!

January Haul 2015 | New Look River Island Nike Mac
So I attempted a spending ban throughout January but as you've probably gathered by this post and my previous post I failed.. 20 odd days in is good though right?! Here are the items that made me cave!
River Island Beige Floppy Fedora Hat
River Island Beige Floppy Oversized Fedora Hat | £25.00 | LINK
My favourite buy of January! I've been lusting over these floppy hats for the longest time but never thought I'd be able to pull one off, that was until I saw this gorgeous beige one in RI and just had to buy it. (We all know how much I love my neutrals!) I think these add so much sophistication to any outfit, I especially love the ribbon trim, and as it's beige I know I'll be getting lots of use out of it in the warmer months too! Be prepared to see a lot of this on my Instagram..
New Look Reversable Scarf
New Look Reversible Scarf | £15.00
I'm never really one for scarfs but as it's been so cold lately, a thick chunky scarf was on my list. I couldn't decide if I wanted tartan or a more beige 'Burberry like' style so when I saw this it was the perfect combination! Do you ever get those really good shopping days where you manage to get everything you want? This was definitely that day! Even though the designs aren't something you'd put together, I think they really compliment each other and it looks really nice on too. (If I do say so myself!) I don't often go into New Look but I'm so glad I did as I love this!
Nike Leggings
Nike Pro Tights | £22.99 | LINK
If any of you follow me on Twitter then you may have seen that I've really been getting into fitness lately and to make sure that it wouldn't be a 5 minute wonder I had a little splurge on some gym wear. So this wouldn't be a fitness haul I've picked my favourite of everything I brought which are these leggings. They're great quality, fit perfectly and are an absolute bargain for Nike too!
Mac Pro Longwear Concealer
Mac Pro Longwear Concealer | £17.00 | LINK
My holy grail concealer, this really is the best there is! You can see my rave review here :)

Have you brought anything recently?
Have you ever attempted a spending ban before? If you have please leave me any tips you have that helped you to get through it! 


  1. I love all these items and I am a sucker for hats , I recently got a plaid scarf as well that looks really similar except its plaid red and the back is houndstooth. I love your items

  2. THAT HAT!! I'm hoping you'll wear it on Saturday to match me? I will have my hat with me ;-)
