Maybe we can get the Empties No Buy group to join in on this!!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Let me get through this next box and see what I have left! Granted I have a lot just want to make sure ;-)

You know I am in!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

I've really wanted to do a TSB if the group will have me.  I tend not to qualify for most because I'm new to BT.  I do a bunch of other blogger swaps if that raises any confidence in my reliability!

Joannimation

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

It's okay shadetertiary! I'm new too, so I never qualify either. 

AlisG

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Me neither :/ I've wanted to do a couple but they fill up fast, are only in the US, or I don't qualify haha.

AlisG you in Canada? Might be a logistics issue but we won't leave you behind, will figure it out.

AlisG

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

YAY! I do.. I live in Vancouver which sucks because I'm just across the border lol. Hopefully I can join in! (As you can see from before. I'm super excited to be included. I pretty much reverted to the kid in the candy store mentality.) 

But if it doesn't work out, don't worry! I'll live vicariously through your guys' pictures of the awesomeness.

Did everyone make it through the weekend with their no-buy intact?

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Good morning ladies!

Its a beautiful Monday morning. The sun is shining, birds are chirping and no-buy is still intact.

Hi Hackney, how are you doing today? Hope you got enough sleep this weekend.

Stay strong. United we Stand. Enjoy your week :smileyhappy:

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Good Morning Makeupinfinity! My no-buy still intact too! Week 3 and seems to be getting a lot easier! Thank goodness I have a stash to shop which helps!!! Thinking of starting a TSB box since I have so much! Gonna see how this next box I am in pans out! Maybe we ladies on the no-buy can do one together!!!

eriles

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

I was gonna suggest a TSB or a trade or something! I have lot's of goodies I can offer! I would love to do one because I have wanted to participate in one but don't meet the requirements on some of these new ones for hearts.

 

Plus I think it would help with the no buy because it would feel like getting new stuff which would help those urges and desires for new shiny makeup lol.

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Yes to the no-buy TSB!! :smileyvery-happy:

 

No-buy is also still intact! For me, I think it gets worse over time. At least when I buy something, I can feel a little guilty, and that guilt keeps me from ordering more. But the longer I go without an order, the more I try to convince myself I NEED that blush or mascara.

 

But it's already almost May! So another month closer to the end of everyone's no-buy!! :smileyhappy: That's 4 more months for me!

 

My boss is finally coming back from his business trip today, so hopefully that keeps me busy and distracted :smileyhappy:

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Ok, let's see how many no-buyers want to do a TSB! But it seems the thread has kinda died out except for a handful of people.

Joannimation

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Too many beauty addicts on BT waiting to be enabled hahaha.

hackneyfl

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Amen to that!!!

eriles

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

I think I just need to stop reading beauty blogs and then I won't be enabled or drooling over what is coming next. 

 

I can go a long time without orders but I feel like half the time  (if I were go go through my history) I order due to a good promo code. 

 

I am not far into my no-buy so we will see how things go with my urge to shop haha.
