February Low Buy Haul

Hi lovelies,

So second month has been passed in 2020, so that means an other haul. But let’s start with the budgeting:

February was just a month to be finally over. I am nearly on a zero leftover now, as we had so many expenses this month, some of them was planed, others aren’t.

So we have bought our very first TV and my husband wanted a voice bar so bad for his birthday so that was his gift. I think we did send a lot of gifts for friends (dispute the budgeting) as we had 5 birthdays and a farewell party this month. I must not forget that my income was 35% lower than in January. I got sick and we had the opportunity to invest in a half pig, which would cover a lot of meats we actually eat so now it is an expense, but in a long term that was an investment…

Savings: only 34 %, but if I add that saved a bit more in January it convers to 51% of the planned one, so I will try to manage it next month somehow

Needs: Sent 16% more on my needs as it should had been…

Wants:

This month I have not bought any makeup or skincare as I am hardly trying to use them up. I went to my hairdresser as a treatment this month, which I only do like every 4 months. I had a few birtdays in this month, so did  purchased some gifts to my husband and to my parents- but these are counted to the need file. I also had to buy a new makeup counter and paper organizers as we have finally finished our glass wall and the oldies was not fitted in… + I had to clean a lot in the house so decluttered a lot too.

What I have purchased for myself:

Kazar shoe- for a while I was looking for a perfect pump, but all of the high-heels was so uncomfortable, and now I have found the perfect one with a blocked heel: elegant, comfy and easy to walk, made of a 100% leather- of course it is not the cheapest from a Polish brand, Kazar -BARI- shop it here.

Everlane– This sustainable brand, which I am eyeing on… it was coming in a paper packaging:

I wanted to upgrde my basics, these are their Basic Cotton Crew in S size and Oversized Alpaca Crew in Almond – S size.

So that is what I have decluttered in the middle of the month:

Expired Make up: Bobbi Brown Bronzer, Nars Orgasm Blush, The Balm Mary Luminizer, MAC Ruby Woo lipstick, ABH brow pomade were all so great and saved several decluttering, but some of them were over 5 years…

Then I had a looking to my jewellery box and found some never gonna use items which I was gifted to a thrift store.

Used up two parfumes and my Estee Lauder coral sun lippie.

On the wants I have sent 102% more than I would had been…. so failed.

xoxo and see you in March!

End of the year

The end of something is the beginning of something. I never considered the New Year’s Eve is the end of something as while at school it was always September to June, now working in the Hospitality Industry knowing the never ending circulation (we do not really have high and low season for 2 years now, which is pretty tiring). In the last 5 days, we have work a lot do I also try to find some time cleaning and clearing out the unused stuffs from the flat, so have space for the new.

Continue my useless serie like in my posts of: Overconsumption and Buy less, use less

Winter time I aslso wear skirts, but really missing biking, so I just have found intrabike trainer, which is a really good opportunity to get in shape, train a bit and having that movement. Might be I must try spinning?

I do not think we are going to an overpriced party at New Year’s Eve, as I am going to work in the morning of 1rst January. Before you think omg, I love the 1rst of January shift: champagne of course, nice people coming to say Happy New Year joyfully, while the overdrunk and usually arguing guests only wakes up in the afternoon:) heee he

I always hate to promise and planning ahead for the next year. So I do not promise only write what I want in the first half of 2018:

  • having a nice honeymoon
  • finding and buying our home
  • moving in our new home
  • being elected to Les Clefs d’Or concierges
  • having our new desk and changings done at the hotel

Love, happiness, dreams, loyality and quality ime together are keeping highly important.

Wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR !
