59/100: So close, yet so very far away from a goal of NO beauty shopping for 100 days. If you've been keeping up with my posts you'll see that the beginning was alright but the past few weeks have been not so great. Have you guys seen the haul post? Yeah, how can someone be in the middle of a No Buy Challenge with a haul post?! That ... just doesn't add up. Sad to say it, and a little disappointed in myself, but I am officially marking this challenge as a big, fat, super sized FAIL.
Don't get me wrong, this challenge was nice to have in the back of my mind when I was about to buy something I know I didn't need but that didn't stop me from my huge lusting over some products. I wanted this to help me stop buying things in general that I didn't need. I'm already getting excited to drop a dime on the M.A.C. Marilyn Monroe collection next week, so that's not good. I just came to realize that I can't just not buy anything. I mean it's not a bad thing that I was buying stuff that I needed, like a new mascara because all of mine had dried out. Helping the economy and all, right? My previous shopping habits weren't good either and this challenge sort of helped me see that. I see no point in going on with this challenge if I know I'm going to be buying things and just apologizing for them later.
I hope you guys don't think any less of me for stopping and ultimately failing this challenge. I'm not going to go on a crazy shopping spree now, but I won't stop myself from browsing and (after some serious thought) getting some bits and bobs.
I hope this doesn't discourage anyone from doing this challenge because it sort of does put your spending in perspective and I'd still love for you guys to share you No Buy Challenge posts with me! :)
