The Month That Was May


Tomorrow is the first day of June, the 6Th month and you know what that means? It means we're almost half way through 2012 already! Crazy stuff.

So, how am I going with my resolutions for 2012?

1. Spend $100.00 or less per week
2. Read a book per week.
3. Blog a minimum of once a week - Secondhand Sundays.
4. Support small local businesses where ever possible.

I've been good at sticking to my spending budget.

I started reading a book...I'm about 1 chapter in, does that count? I don't think it does...I have a lot of reading to catch up on if I'm going to read 52 books this year.

Whilst I'm not the most regular blogger I have posted at least once every week, usually at least twice a week as a minimum.

And most of my spending money has either been spent at the Riccarton Market or at various secondhand shops this month so I've done my bit to support the little guy!

Do you still hold yourself accountable for your New Years resolutions? Do you remember what they were?

I'm contemplating the idea of starting a bit of a spending ban...I haven't decided yet how long I want to commit too...


  1. Sounds like you're doing so well with your resolutions! I can't believe tomorrow is June either - where has the year gone?

  2. I don't remember my resolutions, I don't even think I made them =)

    check out my blog and, if you want, let's follow each other on GFC or Bloglovin' or both ;)

  3. Resolutions can be good. I banned myself from shopping for 2 months. It was tough, but I did it!
    Anyway, these are good ones you've got. Keep it up!

  9. It's smart to monitor our progress. Applaud yourself for posting so often. That was my main resolution, too.

  10. Wow, you have so many pretty looks! The polka dot dress at the end of the second row is amazing!!!!
    And I love your progress report on your NY Resolutions. I don't make resolutions because i know I'll break them :)
    I would love for you to visit my blog sometime!!

  11. great recap! you have a lot of fabulos dresses.

  12. Love these outfits! :) You look fantastic, especially in your red coat - gorgeous! :) Best wishes

  13. Yay good job on keeping your new year resolutions! And these outfits are great, I love all the layering you do :)

  14. I haven't been able to complete any books lately either. I'm about 2/3 through one, but it's embarrassing at this point that I'm not done yet and I started over a month ago! I think it's so great that you're being so faithful to your New Year resolutions. Maybe I'll try that next year!

  15. All of these outfits have been so great. And 52 books? You can get that done in an hour duh :)
