My name is Eleanor and I spend too much.
Payday comes and goes and I seem to have made it my mission to spend every last penny in the intervening period.
Well times are a changin'......
Here i present my last Sunday Splurge, along with details of the 'Spending Diary'.
All I can say is the last Sunday Splurge was a good one, and very practical for once .......
Topshop Oceania Wedges £60
(£48 with a bit of 20% student discount, one bonus of my career choice!)
I love these wedges, the leather is buttery soft and they are just the right heel height for me at 5'9''. I'm pretty sure these are going to become my new favourite thing.
Zara Trousers £25.99
Zara really comes up trumps when it comes to work wear in my opinion, balancing professionalism and modesty with style. If any of you have links to good work wear blogs let me know i'm constantly looking for inspiration. I may post some workwear posts if i can drag myself out of bed earlier.....
The original point of my trip was to pick up this bag, unfortunately it was gone when i got there so i ordered online when i got home (when there is a will there's a way).
Zara Plaited Shopper £79.99
Destined to be my work bag for the summer, large enough to store all of my life and plain enough to go with everything.
And so onto the second part of the post; the spending diary.
June is marking a new chapter in my life; one of restraint, modesty and self control. Well a month of good intentions at least.......
I am going to detail every last penny of my spending in my red Moleskine (yes, excessive stationery spending is one of the many points i need to work on). I have a tendency to fritter my money away on frivolities such as M+S lunches (no more salmon salads), car parking (Eleanor get up 20 minutes earlier and walk from the free parking) and 'treat' purchases (life isn't that hard that i need to 'treat' myself on such a regular basis).
I am going to publish my spending on here, on a weekly basis, in the hope i can shame myself into curbing my spending habits. I remember features like this in Shout magazine with great fondness, I think women are inherently nosy, hence the popularity of the 'What's in my bag?' tag.
I may even reconcile my bank in true accountant style (Kindle downloads cost money Eleanor)...... one small step away from those who keep a balance sheet of their life; don't worry I shall seek rehabilitation before I reach this point!
Anybody else in? A couple of lovely ladies on Twitter are.
It would be interesting to compare spending habits....
