Car wont start!! HELP!!!...

Hi guys, advice is much needed over here! firstly, my little car wont start. i figure its the battery, right? coz if i leave my radio on for too long the car wont start and i have to jump it. so i go out and get myself a brand new battery. fit it and hey presto! the car is purring. im all in the clear i think and carry on with other pressing matters. then, after approx a week, (drove it the whole week)i try to start my car one evening after just using it half an hour earlier and she wont fire up! now i am going into a tailspin..
so the mechanic says to me its the fuel pump, i get that changed...
and i am back in the game! or so i thought....
two days later, the car wont start again, and i am at a loss
i just did a major service in december and i was not anticipating this! i have no idea what is going on! i am not mechanically minded, being of the fairer sex, but i know my fair share...
my only other guess is alternator???
i just dont know...
can someone shed some light on this for me??
