Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

I'll do it!! Can I start April 24th and I'll go up until August 1st (that's my birthday - can't resist those deals!!)

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Welcome aboard!!! Gonna need all the support we can get around here.

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

My birthday is august 1st!!!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Woohoo!! August birthdays are the best Smiley Happy

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Ok it's official now that I just ordered the ambient lighting palette I am officially  banned from ordering and buying anything beauty related for two months. 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

WoooHoooo, welcome to the club ;-)

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

April 15-May 1. Punishment for getting drunk. Might return my BE Ready 4.0 The Happy Place. Will also need to sell off a lot of make-up.

(first time getting drunk BTW)

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

There is nothing wrong with getting drunk, as long as you are responsible and stay safe. Smiley Happy

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

I just feel so bad though! And quite irresponsible for not taking care of myself. Nothing happened, I was in my room and I just tried a lot of self care, involving showering, gatorade and washing things if necessary. 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Glad to have you! Any step whether small or big is a step in the right direction ;-)

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

I must clarify, is it a no buy just for sephora? Can I buy from Ulta or other places? LOL I have a VS secret rewards card...

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

LOL! It is whatever you feel you need a no-buy from, I have been on a serious makeup binge and so I have put myself on an ALL makeup no-buy! It is painful!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

My blackout dates are May 7th to the end of August for beauty products Smiley Happy

 

May 6th is a big Sephora trip with my recently engaged coworker and male ex-coworker who's a sucker for Sephora's men's cologne!

 

I better get my summer purchases in ASAP.

 

 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Wonderful! Glad to have you aboard! Let me just say, ohhhhh it is so hard, while I did manage to get in the new lashstash before I went on the no-buy, with all the new things that have came out today, it has taken everything I have to not break the no-buy! Goodness gracious! 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

While I was posting my declaration to not buy, I went back to get the Summerstash, but it was already OOS. Smiley Sad

 

But I need this thread to keep me sane and keep my room clear haha. If I don't, my puppy won't have an empty kennel to sleep in Smiley Tongue

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Yes, I need a thread to keep me honest and sane too! Only way to keep me honest is if I have to post my order history showing that I did't buy! 

 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Joining this no-buy until May 31st! The 15% off sale really hurt my wallet and now I have plenty to play with.

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Come on in and have a seat! Coffee, ALCOHOL (only way I might make it until 5/31 myself) and donuts will be served soon ;-)

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

You're in good company!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Oh goodness.... I don't know Smiley Sad I know I should, but maybe a no buy on unnecessary buys... like another palette or something 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Oh you can do, we are here for you while you go through withdraws ;-)

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Sorry I am late with the coffee, donuts and the NEEDED alcohol to make it through the no-buy!

 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Thanks for the thread and for the COFFEE!

Can I join? I can't promise not to look at the "new arrivals".

My goal is to be on a no buy until November.

 

Lets be strong girls.

 

My order status for today is in the spoiler below.  I have 1 more box coming tomorrow.  Hopefully that's it.

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Come on it! Of course you can! WOW! November! You are a brave - brave woman.

No problem on the 'new arrivals' but don't tell us if something pops up ;-)

 

Strong is an understatement! Been about 24 hours for me and I am about to lose my mind!!!! ;-)

I haven't bought but my love lists is filling up just from reading and seeing all the hauls from the sale.

 

I am still pending 10 or so orders! <hangs head in shame> but I have not bought since creating this thread!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

OMG 10!

Stay strong girl.

As you can see from my order history, I had a dry spell from November 2012 until this January.

I came back strong with 9 orders since (+ 3 in-store). And its only April. Smiley Sad
