A lifestyle diary-sorta post
If you have read my blog for a while then you will know how much I loooooove luxury fashion; I am the girl watching all of the fashion shows, noting it all down, and always #dressingtoimpress. I believe there is no such thing as overdressing and therefore I take what I wear incredibly seriously ( how first world of me, I know ).
Unfortunately, my fashion tastes don’t quite go in line with my spending abilities…ah, blissful student budget life. However, I am not going to give up and let it phase me, and instead I am going to make everyday changes to save for the items I want. With all of this in mind, I decided to write up a little blogpost of things I am planning on doing to save myself a little coin to spend and we can see how long it takes me to get there?
- No more coffee – I am SUCH a grab a coffee in a cafe person; I absolutely adore the vibe that coffee shops have. However, it is one expensive hobby. 2 coffees a week is approximately a fiver that is being thrown out of the window, so I am hoping to cut down on the unnecessary coffee outings and stick to my good old cafe-tier instead.
- Beauty Ban – many of my friends know me as the beauty queen, and I will partially admit to this title – I have an insane collection of beauty/skincare products and if I don’t own it, I still know about it and can give an adequate recommendation. However, I do not need to be purchasing any more products ( 7 foundations should be fine, right…? ) and for now I will cut down on the amount of money I spend on new releases and try to use up all of my old products instead.
- Ditch bulk shopping – I have been trying to be more selective in the past year and perhaps it is reflected in my previous posts as I only have one pair of ripped jeans, one pair of chelsea boots, etc etc. However, in order to save I need to take it one step further and decide what is it exactly that I need – I had a pair of Topshop boots arrive yesterday that I am going to have to return ( *sobs uncontrollably* ) because they are a high heel and I just have nowhere to wear them. I guess you can’t have it all, sacrifices have to be made.
- Getting a job – now this won’t be a surprise to 95% of you because hardly anyone in this world doesn’t work, however, as a student I would’ve ideally hoped to avoid it and focus on my studying instead. However, when you want to be #ootd goals, it’s not all that simple after all. I have applied for a couple of jobs so far and I will apply for a few more and hopefully get a job somewhere and start saving!
Stay tuned for my update on how my savings are going, and hopefully see a desired item in my collection! Also, feel free to join me on the saving bandwagon, and let’s support each other and see how far we can get!
