I went fishing super early when I took a vacay to see family and it was so weird to not have to bundle up that early in the morning! I enjoy the sunshine! But no thank you to hurricanes lol.

That is a big deal!!

 

I was just in Washington last week. I could barely survive with just my leggings. Considered layering another pair on Smiley Happy

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Yeah, for me, it's going to be high of 98 later this week! I'm feeling more melted than a lippie inside a TSB.

LOL LOL LOL! Thank goodness though the humidity is back, well kinda, good for my lips but NOT so good for my hair!!!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Oh no!

 

Hope you're not having this kind of a hair day!!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

ohhhh I spend about an hour curling it to pretty much have NO curl by the time I get to work! Shameful for sure ;-)

Wow! I bet your insomnia is giving you plenty of time to get all dolled up in the morning!

 

I barely spend five minutes on my hair. It's gotten so long that I just throw my hands in the air in defeat after applying some serum or oil. Plus, it's almost summer, so I have an excuse for waves Smiley Very Happy

WoooHooo eriles! Congrats! I have been shopping the stash, to tempting to visit any store with any kind of make up counter!!! I won't even go into make up isle at target! LOL LOL

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Ok, all cleaned up! if you want to be added to the possible TSB, please let me know and if you are canada or us.

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Hello Newbies ;-)

 

We are thinking about starting a TSB, for those who have officially joined and active on the thread will be the ones added, please let me know if you want to be added.

 

For the old-timers, I am going to re-org the above as it is getting long ;-)

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Okay. I think I fully need to commit to this. I've been wavering every now and again! UGH! I think I need a public shaming if I mess up. It'll deter me. 

Commitment: No-buy until May 31st and I'm only going to buy things that I need to replace other things.. and Maybe the Nars Radiant tinted moisturizer with SPF 30 (one time only!) 

Please shame me the next time I see pretty lipsticks/nail polishes/eyeshadows and decide "I can do it ... just this once" AHA

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Hello AlisG, welcome aboard you have been added to the list above! It is in writing ... let the shaming begin!!! We are a wonderful set of beauties and here to support and not judge if you do fall off the wagon, hmmmm, well me may judge and shame you a little ;-)

YAY! It's now carved in digital stone. Thank you! I feel like shaming might be the only way to stop. Even my mom's exasperated sighs don't work anymore! Haha. But I thank you in advance for all of the support. I'm going to try to go longer than May 31st, but baby steps for now I think Smiley Wink

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Yes, one day at a time! Let us know if you're getting dangerously close to that button Smiley Wink

 

I would always justify my purchases to my boyfriend, and it worked because he didn't get it. But when I come on to BT, and everyone knows what I don't need, I have no way out. I also listed out all my temptations for extra shaming if it came down to it Smiley Happy

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Everything in baby steps. It's day 2! (again!) I was so proud of myself for standing outside of Sephora while my mom went in. She took so long that I thought she might've cracked and bought something!! 

But now she's interested in tinted moisturizers haha. Oh dear. 

That's the good thing about BT whenever you post a haul pic, you can go back and see all of the unnecessary things that you bought.. splayed out for the world to see. It's kind of like a guilt trip for yourself .. which you may or may not then try to rectify by buying more things that you don't need. Smiley Wink

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

I've been lurking since this thread started, but I think I may need to officially join your ranks soon. I need some accountability it seems.

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Haha ditto, stalking until I take the pledge to not open my wallet for awhile. 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Hello meagboho! Yep, it is hard I was only in the corner rocking the 1st week or so ;-)

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

I had a ridiculous (for me) haul this April so you will have me soon enough :X

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Hello almostyou! I have added you to the list above! Happy to have YOU! It is only tough in the beginning! Uh huh, that is what I keep telling myself ;-)

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Also, my birthday is right in the middle of August, so I won't be waiting until the end of August to get myself a giftie Smiley Wink I'll be taking a quick reprieve in August and then hopping right back on.
