From dipping in and out of some of the blog chats on Twitter I occasionally get the impression that some people think that bloggers get sent too much stuff - that readers don't want to constantly see a little asterisk next to the things that someone has posted. Which did at first lead me to go on a bit of a blog search on laurenella to see whether I had an 'okay' ratio of things that were sent to me. 

But then I thought hold up a second, if anyone had access to my bank statements each month they definitely would not be questioning if I buy enough of my own stuff. They might be questioning if I really needed to buy my third watch in a week (two of them weren't for me calm down) or if I was sure I'd end up wearing that Clueless-esque Missguided suit, but they wouldn't question my spending habits thats fo' sho'. 

So here's a little snapshot into what I've splashed a little cash on this month so far, a nice little mix of beauty and fashion products that may or may not have already wormed their way onto the blog as part of a dedicated post. Don't you worry though, you'll be seeing a lot of these badboys - its not cost per wear any more its cost per blog dontcha know.
