Why do I always spend my wages before I get them???

I started laughing to myself when I read Yinka's a.k.a. Vex In The City's post the other day about whether you think your spending has increased since you started your blog. The answer in my case is a resounding YES! Reading all the posts about must have products, killer heels and amazing bags just fuels the fire as far as I'm concerned. I find myself pouring over the newest items to be released and limited edition stuff (this evil ploy makes you want it even more!).

These days, I seem to have my wages spent before they arrive in my account. It's 2 weeks exactly until the money fairy is going to sprinkle funds into my bank account and my growing list of beauty and clothes lustings have already swallowed a great big chunk of my pay!

For example, I already have my eye on these shoes (Gold shoeboots from Dune £95 and studded fringed boots from River Island £84.99). I just can't help myself! I keep imagining all the wonderful outfits I could put together with them. They are just gorgeous and they
keep calling out to really, it's not my fault, it's theirs...they won't leave me alone until I buy them.
My weakness is definitely shoes and makeup. I have a 'Lust List' that I keep on my computer...yes, I am THAT sad! I add products to it that I have seen people rave about or just ones that i want to try and then I strike them off as I get them. The weird thing is the list never seems to get smaller though...

So does anyone else have a list like this? What is your weakness when payday arrives?


  1. You are a bad influence when it comes to shoes =) Those are too pretty!

  2. I have a list too! It never gets smaller :(. & Defiantly now I have a blog, I have been spending more on beauty products. I think I actually buy some, just for my blog. Its crazy!

  3. a recovering shoe addict, your consistent pics of the most FAB shoes are killing me! Lol. I love seeing your lust makes me dream..a girl can dream cant she?

  4. I have a lust list too! Haven't looked at it in a while as it's too depressing seeing the amount of things I want compared with the amount of things I can afford. The gold Dunes are gorgeous, so my kinda shoe.
    Thanks for your comment on my blog, I think it was my second ever! xx

  5. I have a very LONG wishlist! lol

  6. Oh i absolutely love those shoes! an i know what you mean, i do the same and spend my paycheck even before i have it :(

  7. Now why did you have to go and do a thing like that!? Posting such lovely looking shoes, should be a crime!!

    The studded RI ones are GORGEOUS!!

  8. You are one of the blogs that are to blame for my ever growing wish list!! You have a really good eye for fashion!
