Spending ban and top 5 things

No, your eyes are not deceiving you, this is my second post of the week! I've decided to have a very lazy weekend for once making the most of having some me time :)

I have to tell you guys, I've imposed a spending ban! EEEK!

Sad times :(

It's killing me already but I really have to cut spending for a little while. I'm planning a few exciting things coming up which I will need a fair bit of money for, so in the mean time it's no more buying things I don't need and throwing money away when I have so many things already.

So from now on I'm going to be one of those points collecting, home-made soup making bargain hunters. My mother basically!

Anyway, enough rambling, here's my top five beauty and fashion favourites I've been using the past few weeks...

Garnier tinted eye roll on: The lovely Natalie at Headstream PR sent me this a few weeks back to try out (Thank you!) I was already a fan of the original eye roll on for those horrible 6.30am starts when I literally have to force my eyes to open! The formula for this version is the same in that it really makes my eyes feel fresh and more awake, but it also has a tint which helps conceal dark circles too. It doesn't give the best coverage for really dark circles as it is quite light, but it's really nice for freshening up the eye area :)

MUD lipglaze in 'Bare': A little something I picked up at IMATS and mentioned briefly here. It's the perfect peachy nude to stick on when I'm not feeling a lipstick day. It's also really long lasting and not too sticky, so a great gloss in my eyes.

No7 Colour Calming primer: I GOT A PRIMER! I've never bothered before as I don't like to spend too much time putting on makeup in the mornings, I'd rather be in bed! But this little beaut is great for smoothing out my complexion and providing me with an even colour base to counter out my blotchy red faced break outs. (Especially when drinking!) The colour is a little strong, but mixed in well with a good foundation (Revlon Colourstay mostly) it works wonders and doesn't leave me looking like the grinch. Oh and it doesn't dry out my skin too so I get a good dewy finish.

Neutrogena Rapid Clear face wipes: Ok, not the most exciting of all products, but it is a must have! These wipes come in very hand on nights when I can't face the old cleanse tone and moisturize routine . Most wipes do the job for taking off my makeup in a hurry, but these are also amazing for getting rid of spots and clearing up my skin. I had the hugest spot on my face the day before Amsterdam, then I tried out these babies and BAM, no spot. Hurrah! There is a spot fighting cure for us lazy folk after all!

And last but by no means least:

These beautiful bargains from H&M! They were about £15 if my memory serves me correctly (probably not!). I love the style, love the colour and even love the cute inside detailing. They're comfy too which I suppose is the most important part :P I can't wait until it gets a little warmer so I can wear these without my toes freezing off.

That's all for the moment. Hopefully I will still have lots to write about despite the fact that I can't really buy anything new. Hmmm. Anyway, I'm always welcome to new ideas/questions/tags/suggestions etc so feel free to send them my way.

Have a good weekend :) xx
