24/100: Okay I'm not going to lie; this is getting hard. Though I think the shopping gods are conspiring together to make sure I don't buy anything. How am I so sure? Exhibit A: I went to the city to meet up with Mihai. Of course he was late and the new Sephora opening in the Columbus Circle mall was calling to me. I walked and browsed, waiting for Mihai to hurry up and get there so I wouldn't be tempted to stay longer. He didn't show so I was eyeing the Bobbi Brown corrector and asked the sales assistant to help me choose the proper color. She tells me to hold on a minute and whaddya know? Mihai calls and tells me he's arrived. I booked it out of there & Exhibit B: My college is withholding my July paycheck for another freakin' month because it 'was submitted late'. What a load of rubbish. I'm relatively broke now and couldn't buy anything if I wanted it.
Wasn't story time fun, kiddos? Haha, yeah, my financial life is going swimmingly! So what have I been itching and scratching to buy this week? Can I just say I love how drastically different the items on my list are from week to week?!
- Liz Earle EyeBright Soothing Eye Lotion | When do you realize that you're aging? Simple, when you start twitching to get your hands on some mighty fine eye lotion! In all honesty, my eyes are probably my favorite thing about me and I want to do everything I can to take care of them and keep 'em looking nice. I read a ton of reviews on it saying how it was magnificent for de-puffing and toning down the appearance of under eye circles. Ding, ding! With my lack of sleep this almost sounds like a miracle worker! Too bad it's only sold in the UK ):
- Bobbi Brown Corrector | This has been talked about in the beauty community by everyone and their uncle. I hope it's one of those things that does live up to it's expectations when I do in fact buy it. This goes hand in hand with te EyeBright lotion. I need to heal and conceal (ha, I'm profoundly poetic) those scary circles! Concealer alone isn't doing it justice!
- Origins Super Spot Remover | Can you guys tell that I've been dealing with some facial insecurities this week? This little bottle is told to remove stubborn little pimplettes and from a lot of reviews, quite well! So well that people are shelling out $14 for a miniscule bottle of it! What are you, you wonderous little liquid?
- Bath & Body Works Fall Candles | I love the fall. I've dubbed it my favorite season (that is until Spring rolls around once more ;) ) In all honesty, Fall and Winter scents make me so happy. I love how comforting everything becomes. I really want to get my hands on these scents and maybe they'll still have them at the end of my challenge (*fingers crossed). My absolute favorite is the Cinnamon Sugared Doughnut one. I got a baby candle of it last year and hit myself over the head for not getting a bigger one before they ran out. May have to cheat a little and treat myself to just that one. I don't want to spend another year/winter without guys! (Someone stop me, I'm beginning to crack!)
So if it wasn't obvious, I'm starting to realize that this challenge is a lot harder than it seems. I never realized how much free time I spent shopping and thinking about what I was going to by next (told you guys I had a problem!) I also opened an Etsy account, not a shop or anything, just to browse and save favorites! People make such awesome things that I'm trying to resist the urge to buy anything at all! Help me guys, haha!
