  • About Me
    <p>I've always been passionate about makeup and skin care. My mom introduced me to skin care and makeup in my early teens and I've been into it ever since. I have too many makeup and skin care items but I'm still always looking for more, checking daily what's new in the cosmetic world. I could probably start a store of my own with my stash. :) Currently living in Southern California but I'm originally from Finland. I speak fluent Finnish and used to speak Swedish and German. We have 3 children who keep me super busy. I started my own jewelry company a few years ago. I'm a self taught jewelry artist and I've always loved crafting. Creating jewelry allows me to put my creativity into practice. I also love fashion and I keep up on all the trends for my jewelry making. Time flies way too fast! See you online!</p>

    Target Beauty Box

    I agree. They don't look like the boxes used to look like.

    Getting ready for No Buy 2019!

    Love this!! Rooting you on!! I'm still on no buy myself as well and after the initial shock, I don't really miss the shopping. It's getting easier to not shop after so much time has gone on. To avoid temptations I delete emails before looking into them so that I don't get a chance to see something I really want. It's an easier decision not to shop when you don't take the time to look at all the amazing new beauty products. When I don't know what I'm missing out on it's not so difficult.

    Winter 2018 Circular Swap

    I think we are better off making another thread in this forum instead of the club. It seems to work better in the forum vs the club.

    Winter 2018 Circular Swap

    Anyone interested in another round? I posted it in the Circular swap club but not sure if people get notifications. I have the box still and tons of other stuff to add so I would love to get another wound going.

    Anyone want to do another round?

    I'd love to do another round if anyone else is interested. So sorry I somehow missed your original post @cpl100. I have stuff too to put in the box plus I still have the box from the last round.

    Hello all!

    Welcome to MUT!!
  10. Love the update @EdithS2! I'm so happy for you!!! I'm also happy with my no buy too. It has been the more deliberating thing and has helped me to become a better person. I've been concentrating on reading self-development books and just overall being grateful for every day and noticing the little things in life. I've been just concentrating on my family outside of my crazy work hours. I work full time and also own 2 companies (my own jewelry line and I'm also a certified essential oil coach) so I hardly ever have time off. I'm no longer worried about what can I buy or not buy. I used to get so angry if there was a new makeup item and I couldn't buy it. Now it doesn't affect me. I just look at it and think oh how nice and move on. I have no interest to shop. The only time I look at things to buy is if my children need something but that's it. I no longer fill up my shopping cart online at sephora or other websites thinking of all the items I'd like to buy and save it for later. I don't even put anything in my cart. I hardly even look at Sephora's site. I did purchase a mascara recently but it was the only thing I bought because I needed a waterproof one and my current one had gone bad. I didn't think how many more other things can I add to the cart with the mascara like I would have before. I just bought the mascara and a gift for someone for Christmas and that was it. It was a very thought out purchase and I didn't purchase anything that I didn't need like I would have before.
  11. Happy Halloween!! Enjoy the Eve Lom cloth! I wanted to try it but never have. I have used muslin cloths though and they are really nice. Way to keep focused and going on your no buy plans!!!

    Any good and cheap nail polish?

    I really like the Sally Hansen Instadry nail polish. You can order it online at Target.
