How to stop Overspending

(Image from Pinterest)
We’ve all been there; we all like to buy Clothes, shoes, handbags etc. But when buying becomes an obsession how do you cope? I’m a victim of overspending and tend to spend a lot of money on clothing and shoes specially when I’ve seen an item I like on a blogger and it looks amazing, I literally have to have it, I have no patience when it comes to saving and then buying clothes. The reason why I’m doing this post is because I really want to move to London next year to pursue my career as a fashion photographer and the way I have been overspending on clothes and shoes it seems very unlikely that it will happen for me. So I’ve decided to share some helpful tips that have helped me stop overspending and actually have helped me to start saving.

1. Set a Budget for monthly luxuries
If your working like me its best to set yourself a budget for monthly luxuries such as clothing, shoes, bags and other luxuries. If you set yourself a budget then you have a set amount of money you can spend a month without dipping into your savings.

2. Set up a separate bank account
This is a tip that helped me a lot, I opened a new bank account to set half of my wages to go into the account every month by bank transfer that way I hardly see the wages and forget that they are there.

3. Try to spend less time shopping online and window shopping
You often browse online out of boredom or maybe you like to window shop when you’re out and about. Try to spend less time looking online and window-shopping, as it will help you avoid making unnecessary purchases.

4. Buy items you ‘need’ rather then items you want
The best thing to do before buying anything is to sit down and figure out if you really need the item or you just want it. There has been many times where I have brought items because I really liked the style or shape of it and realized when I got home I had two of exactly the same thing.

5. Go out less
This applies to dining out as well as going out clubbing, I noticed on nights out that I spent about £80 on drinks without realizing it, which is quite dangerous. If your going to go out I would suggest taking out a set amount out of the bank and keeping your bank card home. I would also suggest to eat out less it would save you so much more money.

Do you have any useful tips to add?

Tom Ford: Black Orchid

I think I must be the only female in the world who isn't really into perfumes, I received this as a gift and thought I would do a little review on it. The smell is more of a natural wood/plant smell its a hard smell to actually describe, The packaging is lovely and the smell lasts for a very long time, it takes a while for the smell to actually kick in but its one of my favourite perfumes now.

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

I've been using Nars products for years so when the new Nars All Day Luminous Foundation had came out I knew I had to give it a go.

The foundation is supposed to be an Oil-free foundation that delivers full natural-looking coverage with one drop, I have to say that when first using this product I was shocked at how little I had to use for a full face of makeup. After wearing the foundation for five minutes and letting it soak into my skin, i have to say I looked flawless. Having been a user of Nars sheer glow for many years I have to say this is the best foundation I have used.  The foundation leaves my skin feeling fresh and doesn't it doesn't feel like I have any foundation on my skin at all thanks to the weightless light formula. Nars claims that the foundation lasts up to 16 hours, I did a full day at work and didn't take my makeup off till the night and the foundation had hardly moved of my face at all.

I would recommend this foundation if your looking for a nice natural looking foundation with buildable coverage, you won't be disappointed with this one.


  • Lightweight.
  • Flawless Finish.
  • Feels amazing on your skin.
  • You only need one drop.
  • Lasts very long.
  • Price.
