Just a quick update to show you all the empties I've accumulated over the last week - there's quite a few of them! These were all products I already had on the go and most only had one application left, but I made a concious effort to actually use them up so rather than them taking up space, they can be recycled. You will see that I do try to use up all the products, so I've taken the scissors to one of the tubes!
Also finished is my Hello Kitty shower get - that's lasted almost two months! I'm not sure whether to keep the bottle (which was completely impractical but looks cute) or to chuck it. It was a pressie from Mr TBBB and it is cute, but I am a woman in my 30s, so how much do I really need it in my life? I'm not a Hello Kitty devotee, so perhaps I should chuck it...hmmm.
Well ladies, you will be proud of me. I have undertaken not one, but two trips where shopping temptation was shoved in my face, but I was strong and resisted! On Friday I had to go to Cardiff city centre for work - no meetings or anything, I just needed some photos and to check the location of a couple of shops. I don't know Cardiff very well, but whilst I was wandering around, I spotted House of Fraser. I'm on a mission to get my hands on Across The Universe nail polish from Deborah Lippmann sold in their Apocatherie section, so without even thinking about it I popped in. However, like the Bristol and Bath HoF, they didn't have any Lippmann polishes, so I left empty handed. I did have to storm past the Tom Ford counter and slip out a side door because, although I've made loads of comments that I wouldn't shell out £36 for a Tom Ford lippy, in reality, I so would! Yesterday my friend asked me to go round the charity shops with her to pick up any bargains. I did spot a brand new tunic from Next that was very 'me' for £8. However, I resisted and I only forked out a fiver on my lunch.
I did have £18 worth of Boots points, which I thought would keep me going for ages in essentials. However I now have less than a tenner left after buying essentials I needed: earplugs, tampons, savlon, ibruprofen and lunch one day (bad girl). I don't think I need any more bits this week though.
I've been making a big effort to use up the makeup products I selected for Project 15 Pan. I can see that some will be easier to use up than others! I'm getting through my foundations and face powder, but eyeliner really does last forever, despite going for a kohl-heavy look everyday this week! I've also been sporting a fetching blue eyeshadow look daily, which is completely destroyed by lunchtime as the Elf Eyelid Primer I'm using up doesn't work at all with my eyes! Hopefully some of them will run out soon...
Thanks for reading! xx
