As I've mentioned before, this month I was trying to be on a strict budget.
I went a bit crazy during the winter sales period, so March was pretty challenging as I promissed myself I would be very careful at how I spend my money!
I gave myself a budget of 200 € (including all my monthly needs, such as make up, skincare, bodycare, haircare, CLOTHES, accessories, footwear, even snacks at work!!!)
I know, when talking about money, it's all relative, because somebody might see my monthly budget as ridiculously tiny & then, other people may see it as huuuge amount of money to spend only on myself!
I was just trying to adjust it to make it proportional to my needs and cravings & to what I REALLY need & can afford. I think 200 € is plenty & I did great staying in the limits of my budget!
I feel very proud :)
I concentrated on finding bargains, good deals, in-store promotions & thrifting!!!
Concerning make up & cosmetics, I wasn't buying anything that I didn't strictly need. What's the point in accumulating stuff?
I read a very inspiring blog post, written by my friend Liz, about trying to be less consumist.
You also, can read it HERE :)
So, as I've said, I'm on a hunt for bargains ;)
I was very excited when, at "Bijou Brigitte", I found amazing jewellery on sale, for only 2 €!!
I picked out a few pieces that I really liked & that are going to be great for completing my spring & summer outfits.Some of these necklaces were originally priced at 24 €!!
This is what I've picked out:

Thanx for watching!
How are you at spending & hauling?
Do you give yourself a budget or do you indulge every month into buying whatever you like?
Do you think you really need all the things you buy?
If you'd set yourself a budget, what should that be, to cover all your monthly needs?
I'm just being a bit curious, girls ;)

Handloom Khadi cotton is gorgeously natural and beautiful in its rawness, yoga pants and tunics made from these breathable cotton fabrics carry the beautiful creative energy of the weaver. Fabrics woven by hand have a natural color variation giving a uniqueness to the cloth. Going back to the roots and the times of our grandparents where everything natural reigned supreme.
