I may live to regret this, as I type away at my work desk…
But I’ve been doing up some sums in my head as to how much money this month I have spent on cosmetic purchases (eBay hauls, adambeauty hauls, a haul from Japan which should be arriving soon…) and it’s a lot.
Needless to say I definitely don’t need any more make up and have bag loads to get through to open and review. I don’t need more make up…at least not for the rest of the year (not including gifts, ahem) so I want to set myself a challenge, starting from today October 03rd 2011 (cos I bought something yesterday!) to not buy. any. make. up.
Cross my paw:
This is going to be tough. With new collections out shortly…this is going to be hard.
But I have an ipad and Sigma 50mm lens (thanks for that lemming Charlotte) in my sights and surely these things have a better resale value than an eyeshadow and lipstick? (speaking of which, big blog sale but not this month…probably. If I have the energy!).
Things I will have to do to prevent accidental make up purchases:
1. Not browse aimlessly on eBay
2. Not browse adambeauty.com at all
3. Not read certain blogs that always get me tempted
4. Do something else!*
(* Something else includes the a shop revamp – completely new structure and branding, and making videos which I haven’t done for a year!).
So let’s do this…one month at the time. By the end of October I should be able to do a Scrooge McDuck and swim in my coins right? Did anyone else really want to do that as a kid? But in reality it would hurt and really smell.
Anyway – we have a poll people! Totally anon of course:
Are you on a make up no buy?
