Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

I am going to attempt to do a no-buy till November's Sephora sale. I literally have probably around $20k in products and it's come to the point where I need to stop lol. I just put in an order with Urban Decay because they had a ton of awesome sale items.. I got 13 items for like $50 so I couldn't say no. But NO MORE! Going to try and not give in for 7 months. Eeek! I'm scared. Haha. At least I have VIB Rouge status till the end of 2015 to look forward to.

I thought I was getting better now since I got home for two beautiful Sephora boxes (very small ones bough last weekend), and I haven't even stop to open it yet. So I though my anxiety had calmed down, until I saw the e-mail about 3x points for fragrances and I'm trying to hold myself no to buy one. Crazy part is I was just in the hospital yesterday because of complication with my allergies and sinus. Fragrances are one of the worst triggers for my allergies, so it shows how nuts I am for the points! LOL

Awwwwww sorry about the allergies! Yep, I have resisted the 3X fragrances so far!!!

I'm excited and nervous and scared!!!

 

As the day goes on, I get closer and closer to my Sephora trip tomorrow to get my bf's sister a present. I picked the Sephora in South Coast only because they're the nearest store that has the Maison Martin Replica perfumes...but what if I walk out with more?!?! What if they have some hidden gems that I have to have??

 

I wish my monitor would spritz out perfume, and I didn't have to go to the store to see for myself :smileysad:

That's when you just have to go in on a mission and not look around. Because once you start looking at all the pretty shiny things...you're done for. At least that's how it works for me if I spend too much time in Sephora lol. I stick to lists when possible.

That's a good idea. Maybe I should set a time limit for myself. 1 hour to get in, get what's on my list, and get out.

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Hahaha, I don't think BT is available on their phone app. Maybe I'll bring my iPad and let everyone know when I check in and check out :smileyvery-happy:

I am a big list person and it helps. Or at least I make a list of what I want to see in store and try not to stray. It worked for me the other day! I even do it at the grocery store. It helps a lot. 

 

Did you see the thread where someone posted the sun kit they picked up in a Sephora in JCpenney?? From the looks of the kit I think I am going to pass as I have tried almost all of the things in the kit (unless the one at regular Sephora is slightly different). 

Joannimation

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Yes, I saw it! It's the first sun kit I've seen! I'm gonna wait for the Sephora one because I read a few messages that said they get 2-3 more product than the JCPenney ones. But I'm excited!! I need more sun products :smileyvery-happy:

Good morning Girls!

Hackney hope you can get some more sleep in this weekend. Can you add me to the roll call?

I have not placed any orders since April 11. My target date is Novemberish. End of October or early November...we'll see how it goes.

 

I am only limiting myself to bare necessities such as wipes, cleansers, sunscreen. (this includes the Sun-Kit)

 

Yay, I went into Shoppers yesterday and only bought eye makeup remover and some cotton pads. whohoooooooo!  They didn't have the Clarins sunscreen, and the Shiseido SPF 50 was more expensive than Sephora's.  

 

Have a great day girls. Keep truckin on the red no-buy wagon!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Yes I second the sleep! hackney, your insomnia is pretty bad, huh? :smileysad:

hackneyfl

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

(0) Hearts

Yes, Insomnia is so bad!! Think I may have to get to the DR :-(

Joannimation

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

:smileysad: oh no. I hope everything is okay!! But maybe a prescription would help because we all know the best tool in a girl's beauty bag is a good night's sleep :smileywink:

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Yep, if they time stamped all my purchases they would range from 1a - 4a on 95% of them!!!

Joannimation

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

(0) Hearts

No wonder. If I were awake during that time and had nothing to do, I would probably get daily packages from Sephora too!!

hackneyfl

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Yep!!! That is what happens when you up at that time of the night! Geeeezeeeee!!!!
