I’m on a 4 month shopping ban but Sara Happ is making it very difficult!

I’m on a 4 month shopping ban but Sara Happ is making it very difficult!

by on December 2, 2017 · 13 comments

Over the last 6 months Jamie and I have spent a lot of money with our two weddings and my epic shopping spree in the US. Not to mention all the spa treatments I got while I was on honeymoon in Aruba and my recent long weekend in Paris. After much thought and no space to put anything else, I am on a serious no buy – for 4 months!

So as simple as this sounds, I’ve done a risk assessment as there is always something that will push you over the edge on a long haul spending ban. We’ve all been there – going merrily along then suddenly WHAM there is a new HG product you can’t live without. Well for me it’s usually something limited edition from Sara Happ and right on cue she’s not only brought out one but two limited edition lip scrubs!

Sparkling Grape Lip Scrub – only available in Hong Kong

Black Velvet Zoe Lip Scrub and Lip Slip Gift Set – available at Mise Beauty

Honestly I could cry, no really I could. I know I was lucky enough to obtain her limited edition Honey Apple Lip Scrub (exclusive only to Japan) through my connections but I don’t know anyone in Hong Kong. Aside from the fact that I need to stop heamoragging money which is why I won’t be ordering the other one either. They say ignorance is bliss and I probably shouldn’t keep checking Sara’s Facebook page for new things but I can’t help it – I’m Sara Happ addict!

Wish me luck ladies and gents, I’m so going to need it!

Well I’ve been backed into a corner on this one literally I have stuff everywhere and there is no way I can use it all if I keep buying stuff and I do like to finish all my products. I might have to email you though if I get tempted! lol :D

Good luck with your ban! I tried going on a shopping ban too last summer but failed miserably lol.

Those lip scrubs are so tempting! Shame they’re available only in Hong Kong but I guess that’s good news for our wallets lol.

I think it’s very good news for our wallets, when I showed Jamie he was like ‘you have enough lip scrubs already, how many does one woman need’? lol :D

Instant lip-scrub lust here! Well my spending ban is still going OK. Well, apart from forgetting about my Glossy Box, I did buy a nail polish in Boots yesterday, but I can completely justify it ( I can, really). I was buying my last lot of Christmas pressies at their mega points even and it came to £95.66… If I spent £100 I’d get an extra lot of 1200 Boots points, so I grabbed a Zoya polish for £5 without even thingking about it to get me over the £100. So, I spent £5, but I’m up £12 – so it’s totally justifyable… isn’t it?! Still, I reckon I can do another 3 weeks without buying anything else, it has been easier than I originally thought! You can do it, those 4 months will fly by! xx

Thanks BBB, and I think the Zoya is totally justifiable that is a lot of points that you can use in the future! So far I’m okay, I’ve been quite busy with other stuff and haven’t been looking on beauty websites however it’s not even been a week…..eeep! xoxo

Aww you hang in there sweetie! You can totally do it you know. Deep breaths! If it’s any help at all I’m on an 8 month if not ban at least incredibly restrictive spending break (the move back home ya know). Go and smell and enjoy the items you have, and for goodness sake unsub from your news letters and face book thingamajigs!
And keep in mind that smooth lips are less fun when hubby won’t kiss you cause you spend too much! x

Me sad you are going back home however with all the money I’m saving not buying I can get a plane ticket to see my favourite Swedish Nail Chick!

I keep getting emails from B&BW and mom even asked me if I’ve got on there website lately so it isn’t just me that’s feeding my habit, my mom is an enabler too!

Oh tell me about it, every time I go on her website I’m afraid to look! If she comes out with some blueberry or blackberry I am totally if not utterly screwed!!!!! And Jamie will be visiting me in the nut house rocking back and forth saying ‘Can’t sleep Sara Happ will eat me’!
