Buried Treasure

Photobucket

{collection of ASOS, ALDO, random stalls in Ibiza, Topshop & Accessorize}

Everytime I put myself on a clothes spending ban, I always manage to spend my money on something else, therefore i'm never any better off. This time round I have managed to buy millions of rings from various shops and on my random travels. Although these are not all my new rings - I have now realised, I have misplaced about 20% of my new collection - I think I need to put a stop to random spending full stop. Although I am sure I will find something else to spend my money on - probably food - I manage to eat out every single day and the weekends every meal is eaten out! Naughty me. Maybe I just like the 'act' of spending?
What do you guys waste your money on?

I 'waste' my money on stationery. I don't need half of the stuff I have, and I don't use 90% of it - but I love it and can't seem to stop myself from buying it.

I'm currently in the middle of cleaning my desk so I can figure out exactly how much stuff I have :/

you've totally read my mind. i'm a hot mess on wallet restriction. why can't i get it in my head that restriction means RESTRICTION.

i love your pile of new spends...it's freaking fabulous.

Wow quite an impressive collection you've got here - I'm a huge lover of oversized rings and so like quite a few you have here! I'm the same with spending, I work in Covent Garden as well which makes it nearly impossible to bring a new item home at least once a week as I'm surrounded by most of my fav stores!! Life's to short, spend away! ;)

oh pretty! I spend my money on everything. Food, clothes, records.. I will eat at home, ban myself from shops, then still manage to blow money at the bar with my BF. it never ends.

Miss Kiki Lovelace said...

hahahah! i share the same sentiments on spending relentlessly Kirsty! lol!

anyhow.....i think Accesorize is becoming one of my favorite shops at the moment. :)

verseastyle said...

I do the same thing! Jewels, clothes and eating out - what else is there? lol I can find some crap anywhere.. why did I buy a necklace at a gas station on my most recent road trip??? ughhhh

Ceeeeee!! said...

The fact that only spend my money on clothes, clothes and more clothes. I like the rings.

WeShop said...

Lovely collection. Think I'm like you - I go on a clothes ban, but then spend as much (of not more) on small treats like accessories, magazines, makeup, takeaway coffees, sushi etc. Trying to save never works for me! xx

I have the opposite problem, I had to stop buying rings. I seriously have spent an embarassing amount of money this year on nothing but rings. It's stupid. I realized I have no skirts... haha. I love all of your shoes.

Erica said...

I have been buying lots of F21 jewelry as of late. It's cheap and cute, but it can drain my account ever so slowly:)
