October Haul and Some Updates :)

I was hesitating to name this a 'haul' and you will know the reason when you see the pic below. Yes, all I bought this month is a hair cleanser from Forest Essentials ! This is a repurchase and must have been my 5th or 6th bottle and I am huge fan of this hair cleanser. I just didn't realize that I never bought or even needed anything all the month until I was searching for products for the month end haul post !! If I have to be honest I am not evening missing it !!!

October Haul

This is the Mashobra Honey & Vanilla Hair Cleanser that I have been using for so many months (or years??) now and I am in love with the fragrance. Forest Essentials have hiked the price and even changed the packaging ! It comes with a pump dispenser now and it is more difficult for me to get the required product out. I need to at least pump it 10 times and the pump is pretty tight as well ! I so wish they came in the old simple packaging only. If the price hike is because of the change in packaging then it is totally not justified.

Before I end up the post with the monthly financial calculation :p I have few things to share. First of all I am going on a shopping ban until my birthday which falls in April !! It will be exactly 5 months and here are the rules that I am imposing on myself, 
  • I am not shopping any makeup, skin care and hair care.
  • I am allowed to shop skin care and hair care only if I run out of the ones I already have.
  • I can also shop other necessities like nail polish remover, cotton pads and again only if I finish the ones I already have.
  • I can't buy anything until March 31st 11.59 PM.
  • I can buy clothes, shoes and other non-makeup stuff.

I know 5 months is just too much but the cosmetics I have already is too much as well :p

Now I have one more update as well, which I am not very happy sharing ! These days I just don't feel like blogging and I think I need a short break !! There are a couple of things that is keeping me busy and I feel if I force myself to blog here then I might have to compromise on the quality, which will any day be against my wish. So might be I need a break or I might even come back in a week's time saying I miss my blog :p I seriously do not have any specific time period in my mind, so if you do not find me here often please do hang on for a while and I will be back soon and surprise you !!

For now let's go the monthly expenditures :)

This Month -
Total Amount Spent - Rs.775
Total Amount Saved - 0
Best Buys - The one and only product I got.

Happy Shopping :)
