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

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!

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!

Happy to report my no-buy is intact after getting one of my two allowed items at the Clarins counter today. The lady even offered to pre-sale for something and I said no way! 

 

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday. The sun is finally out here! And the temps are above 70! Yay! 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

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!

70?!?!? Nice almost 90 today in sunny ole' FL!!

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.

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

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!

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

 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!
