WoooHoooo! Glad you have on the no-buy wagon! Withdraws are a little rough at the beginning but will get better - I promise ;-)

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Good Morning my fellow no-buy beauties! How is everyone doing? Have you hit that buy button? This second week is proving to be much easier than the 1st week, thank goodness!

Good morning! Well afternoon now... I love that gif :smileyhappy:

 

Things were going well until I got the email that the Guerlain Météorites Perles du Paradise were back in stock!
 I have been able to resist so far because work has been so crazy today. Only 40 more minutes until I can head out - I think I can resist!

 

Has anyone else had any recent temptations?

Mornin sweetie.

No packages for me this week. Feels kinda sad.

On another note, I was looking at the Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu line.

None of the stores in my area have it in stock. So I e-mailed them for some free samples.

No luck, they just asked me to visit my Sephora and Ulta. I live in Canada, no Ulta here.

The closest Sephora that carries the serum is in Amherst, NY. Guess I won't be buying any PTR products any time soon. Just as well.

 

BTW hackney, heard about your mum on another thread. Good luck today and wishing for the best outcome for her.

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Yep, the lack of packages feels kinda weird! The UPS man caught me when I got home yesterday and even though I didn't have a package wanted to make sure I was ok, since he hasn't dropped anything off in a while! OMG OMG how embarrassing but very sweet since he thought I needed to be checked on ;-)

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

hahah this could only happen to you. Our UPS guy is awesome.

Wish we used them more, but our office has a pretty sweet rate with FedEx.

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Online shopping doesn't really appeal me... so I guess the online part is fine. The going into stores... I have good self control in Sephora. (Want it, don't need it, conceal it, don't feel it), I'm just scared when I go into Lush because of their mother's day items. And Godiva for Easter candy!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

I am the opposite, I love online shopping. It is my weakness. I feel like I can search and find anything I want (and I usually avoid stores and department counters because of continual poor customer service). If I physically go out and shop I am more likely to talk myself out of stuff...Online it is so easy to just click submit order and be done with it! 

 

Lush is a hard one though...I can always find something there lol.

I am an online shopping junkie! Can't help myself!

Ohhhhh if you have self-control you might not need a no-buy! Most of us have no self-control ;-)

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

I survived a second day filling my list of "likes". I've had a full cart for three days but did not press buy. But I'm afraid once I get my weekly pay tomorrow and pay my credit card I will start all over again! I should stop at at least until may 02, but it's looking bad! Ideally I should stop until I really try everything I've already bought, but that would take even longer! :/

Congrats on not making a purchase! A no-buy is good for the wallet! It will get easier! ;-)
