Anyone who's been reading my blog for more than a week will probably have clocked that I like to shop.
My New Years resolutions have gone un-reviewed so far because I have spectacularly failed to stick to the most important one - my resolution not to spend so much.
I love the Sophie Kinsella shopaholic books but feel a bit sick when I read them because they resonate too closely with my own thoughts. It's worrying and more that a little shameful.
I hope, then, that you can appreciate it is not without significance when I say that I am going to take part in the Midnight Maniac challenge - DO WITHOUT!
I may be mad, I may not even manage it, but I'm going to try. I feel like going cold turkey may be my only option at this point. I will be spending money on my Mum, as it's her Birthday next week, but I'm going to hold off spending on myself, even on my Birthday at the start of April.
I will make an exception for necessary notions for sewing projects I have on the go - it'd be silly not to make a skirt because I can't buy the zip I need, but I think that's my only get out. No browsing the fabrics while I'm looking for zips either! I must be strong!
I'll try to get at least one blog in a week charting how well I'm doing and whether I'm about to go on a mad Etsy rampage.
Wish me luck!
