My shopping ban started last month when I decided to save for MAC Archies Girls Collection. I thought it would launch around Valentine's Day, but no. It did launch only online exclusively at Selfridges, but I want the thrill of buying them in stores. Touch all the products... swatch them.... die a little inside when something nice is too pricey.
Hence, shopping ban stretched further than expected.
Yes, I've bought hair & skin care products, but they don't count coz they're everyday necessities, and I got them at a supermarket with groceries.
I also bought shoes from Ebay. Those don't count either, because....because they don't count!
23rd Feb, Saturday: I planned to go only to Primark & Superdrug - I'll feed the hungry beast some small snacks before the meal, like a pair of earrings & 1 lipstick, I thought. BUT it snowed heavily. Plan cancelled.
24th Feb, Sunday: Fever & tonsils attack. I could hardly move from the couch. That's a message from the angrier beast.
So.... shopping plan moved to 1st March...... until.....
I called MAC store to ask about Archies Girls launch date, and they said 7th March.
Now I have to wait till the 7th.
So altogether: No shopping for 42 DAYS! Beast, please! Try to understand!
