Spending Ban, New Purchase + Photo a Day

In June, Beauty in a Bottle and I are doing a spending ban. Cue me doing some essential shopping in the week before. It may sound counter-productive but I am now ready for the ban and I will be doing my best to ignore the shops.

This mug was purchased on the Kiss Goodbye to MS website and they managed to ship it to me within 24 hours. They were just so efficient and I love the hot lips. Bonus points for benefiting a good cause! If you want to learn more, check out Melinda's blog post.
Next up, some gorgeous statement necklaces and earrings from Ruby + Riley modelled on my new Table Tonic ikat cushion. They are having a sale at the moment by the way. 
Three new butter LONDON nail polishes in No More Waity Kaitie, HRH and Diamond Geezer. It all feels very royal and it is very appropriate seeing as I love the royal family and purple is my favourite colour. Win-win. 

When I was looking through old holiday photos, I missed the glow that Lustre from NARS used to give me. We were the perfect match until I dropped Lustre in the sink. I never got around to replace it but I finally decided to do so and I got the most amazing service at Mecca
I know NARS is most famous for its Orgasm blush, but Lustre is my favourite and enhances my skin well. It's got a nice golden glow and can be used instead of a bronzer. 
The amazing Kim who assisted me was so friendly and helpful. She shares my love of Lustre and she also gave me a great skin consultation and some samples of the newly released in Australia Kate Somerville skincare. I also got a perfume sample after advising I wanted something heavy for winter. Kim and I are a great match and I can't wait to come back and see her in July.
In addition to the spending ban, I will be keeping busy doing Photo a Day in June. This really cool concept was created by Fat Mum Slim and I hope you will join me on the ride. If you sign up to Instagram it will be even more fun!
And here are two suggestions for free activities you can do if you are saving money like I am. 

Catch up on your favourite show online. I absolutely love Downtown Abbey. The costumes, the story line, the house and the people are just incredible.
Go to the beach, be all rugged up, and admire the fairy floss sky. Try and beat the sundown and have a picnic. 

What are your goals in June? Will you be joining me on the spending ban or the June Photo a Day? What is your favourite free tip?
