Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Yes I second the sleep! hackney, your insomnia is pretty bad, huh? Smiley Sad

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

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

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Smiley Sad 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 Smiley Wink

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

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

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

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

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

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

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

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 Smiley Sad

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

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. 

 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

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!

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). 

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 Smiley Very Happy

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

oh lordy! got a feeling gonna see a message that someone fell off the wagon!

you need no-buy hotline just in case of an emergency? LOL LOL LOL

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 Smiley Very Happy

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

LOL! We will be watching YOU! ;-)

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

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

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

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

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. 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Good Morning, if you want to be added to our little list please let me know and I will add you.

Wow you have an impressive spend!!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Back from Sephora And no-buy is still intact 😄😄😄 I ended up getting The Works for my bf's sister, Nirvana White, and Guerlain Meteorites in Medium. Then got some Replica perfume and OH eye cream samples. Didn't know that South Coast Plaza had TWO Sephoras, but I came out of both alive and proud!!!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Way to go!
