Guest Post: Beauty Bird

We have our second guest post here for you today!

Today we have Beauty Bird from Ramblings of a Beauty Bird, hope you enjoy!

First of all thank you so much to the girls at CSI Beauty Blog for asking me to guest post! I’m a regular reader of their blog, so it’s an honour to write for them. This is also my first ever guest post, so pretty exciting! 
In the past few months I seem to have had so much to pay for; my car tax and MOT fall in the same month and me and my boyfriend finally decided to go ahead and get a puppy! So I've needed to cut down in other areas and when it comes to beauty products I've set myself a "go cheaper" challenge. Basically the essence of the challenge is to replace any of my used up products with a dupe, or very similar product, that is cheaper. I've not set myself really strict rules on this otherwise I know I'll never stick to them! Especially as there's a few products that I just love too much to replace with something different. I wish I could do a spending ban but I know it would never happen!!
Here's what I've come up with for my go cheaper challenge! I've primarily shopped around online, with the aim of picking up some discounts here. Where I have found a product online cheaper than RRP, I've made a note of the website afterwards.
