  1. Got a lot going on! I am working on some profound religious studies I've been wanting to do really badly. I got paid and I have my credit card down to $500 - it is halfway paid off now. Today was my first day of working remotely. I won't be going out, so I'm not going to try to use up all my mini primers, or any other makeup now. Instead, I am going to use up all my mini toners, starting with the smallest one I have, from Biologique Recherche.
  2. It's Sunday. I don't feel said about anything, except for worrying about by elderly father catching coronavirus, because I could not stand to see him suffer, and feeling sad when I hear about the people who passed away. I feel lucky I still have my job, and they even gave my full hours back. Hours have been cut pretty much since December. My Dad asked me to find out when senior shopping time is, and my heart went out to him. Then he came back from shopping and he was happy, because he found cleaning wipes and groceries. He got me M&Ms. Maybe I get my love of shopping from my folks, lol. All I can think of is that stimulus check we're going to get, how if my job keeps on, I can use that to pay a credit card off, oh, that would be so amazing! And trying to use up my 2017 samples. My little hopes and dreams are surviving. Last night I went to visit my friend who lives alone. She said, I'm so depressed because I'm alone in the house. I said, that's what you need to stay alive right now. It is an advantage. But she did not see how that was a good thing. Also I was watching a Sophie Shohet video on YouTube and in the comments someone had a good tip: keep nails really short, as long nails can get germs under them that may not come off when you wash hands.
  3. This weekend I will stay home and entertain myself using old beauty samples: Shamanuti Pumpkin Enzyme mask - this is one of my older samples. I got it in the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It smells great. I will give myself a facial. Kani Moon Milk - this is also from the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It is heaven. It's a beach vacation in a bottle. It is a jasmine tuberose body oil with shimmer and can also be used on the hair ends and as a highlighter. I really love it. Petit Vour sent me generous and costly samples. Nails - maybe I will use a nail polish. I'm not good at doing nails, but I do have a few nail polishes and I need to use them up.
  4. I want to mention a great YouTube channel that was really inspiring to me recently. It is Study with me - law. In case you have not seen the study with me genre of YouTube videos, these are people who live stream long study sessions so others can follow them in real time and stay focused on work. This is the channel of a young Italian attorney who is working for a judge and also studying for the judge exam. During the crisis in her country, she is working and studying at home all day every day. She will usually work on her job in the mornings and study in the afternoons, with a break every 90 minutes or so, and longer meal breaks. Her schedule is not too easy and yet not too difficult, and her videos really helped me to keep motivated when I had my second job working at home. Sadly that job was cut short by the current crisis. I wish I could live like this young woman - with her studious life and huge, beautiful law books.
  5. This is a great idea. I watch YouTube every day - no TV, just YouTube. I subscribed to your channel. I like it because it has food and travel as well as beauty. I liked your images of Berlin (and the food in Berlin!) and also your nighttime skin care routine. The rice milk baby lotion that can only be found in Asia looks really nice, as well as the cleanser with the green tea leaves in the bottom.
  6. I went to London and I went to Boots every day. I am from US. I loved the beauty section in Boots and also Selfridges. I would love to shop in the French Pharamcies. I also loved the crisps and sandwiches in Boots. I love shopping and treats.
  7. Hi Reija nice to see you! I was hoping you were doing okay in these times.
  8. Hi, thanks so much for coming to talk to me. Well basically I love shopping for beauty products so much, I just get too much all the time. I have too many products, and I owe debts, so the idea is not to buy anything new, just try to use all the things I have up to the last drop, and use the savings to pay off debt so I won't have so many bills! I make a fun game of it. I have used up a lot of things and paid off many debts! Thank you for asking about me. I am safe, still going to work and getting food and no one near me is sick. I hope you are doing well too. Good luck on your house! Do you like beauty shopping?
  9. Nice to have you here
  10. Little beauty samples last forever. Used up: finished all of my six belif face cream foil packs (3 True Cream; 3 True Cream Aqua Bomb) two Avon Rare Pearls catalog scented sample pages (I keep pages from catalogs and magazines to use) mini blow pro weather girl hair serum mini Yves Rocher body scrub mini Yves Rocher Argan Rose shower gel mini Eve Lom Rescue Mask Secret Paris Rose Deodorant
  11. My new resolutions to stay healthy Drink at least one entire bottle of water per day (don't like water - always drinking soda) At least 30 minutes of cleaning a day at home - includes disinfecting bathroom, computer desk, and my face with face wash, no more being too lazy to wash face before bed, wash bedding and clothes more often At least 30 minutes outside every day to get vitamin D Put hand sanitizer mini in purse and use it - I don't like hand sanitizer - but I got a mini one for Christmas *personal opinion not official advice

    Yes we'd love to talk with you. Welcome to the club. I think it would be nice to have grey or lavender contacts.
  13. Wow the whole world has changed since I last posted on here. How haunting the news from Italy is, and how heroic all the doctors and nurses are. My world is changing; it's been about a week. My second job I was looking forward to is shut down for now. The religion I was interested in has no services. Along with what everyone else is going through, panic at the stores, schools closed, restaurants closed, etc. My main job I still have for now. I did manage to earn some extra money on my second job before it closed. I paid $75 extra on my credit card. Balance now $600. I'm still keeping up my little plans and my No Buy. So many people to be out of work. I have not been watching beauty videos too much. I watch news now. Cosmetics shopping is like something from a past life. When we took our friend to the store a week ago, she talked to the pharmacist for a long time, and so I found myself in the makeup aisle. Wow, so many pretty things. It has been a long time since I looked at the cosmetics at the store. And I got an Yves Rocher ad in the mail that is offering a free Daniel Hechter purse as a gift with purchase. I thought, I really want that. And then I thought, how can you think of that at this time? Then I thought, they may close Yves Rocher down also. I think it's the perfect time for a No Buy and project use it up during this hard time. I'm really enjoying an old (2017) mini Yves Rocher body lotion at the moment.
  14. I figured I have reached month 10 of my No Buy Year 2! Month 10 will end on Easter Sunday! Here are my goals and little projects for this month: 1. Do well on second job - easier to focus while on No Buy, and no chance of wasting the extra income. I'm off to a good start on it. I'm setting small goals and then working up from there so I won't feel anxious. 2. Pay off $250 on my credit card, with some of my extra wages. I'm setting small goals for now, so I won't get frustrated. This will bring it down to about $500, and halfway paid off. 3. I'm almost finished with my last shower gel that is under 2 ounces - Yves Rocher Argan Rose mini. I was going to follow with some sets I got for Christmas, which have 2 ounce shower gels and lotions. I made a rule that before I do that, I need to use up all of my mini body and hand lotions that are 2 ounces and under. I have several - some from 2017, some new ones from Christmas. The first one to use up is Yves Rocher aloe body lotion mini from September 2017, one ounce, my oldest mini body lotion. I'm bad at using mini body lotions, except for Sisley ones. Sisley ones I use right up! What I'm watching on YouTube now: Hannah Louise Poston - All of My Makeup and Skincare and Where I Keep It (Vanity Tour) - published today. Very pretty and relaxing video. I am jealous! 😍 Too tired and busy to add any low quality photos today.
