Blog Collaboration

Recommended Posts

Are any of you guys interested in doing a beauty blog collaboration where a bunch of us write posts on a common theme, post on the same day, and link to each other's posts? I think it would be kind of fun and we could help promote each other's beauty blogs by doing this too. It could be a one time thing or we could do it one day a month or something. I started blogging because I am interested in beauty products, but the main reason is that I want to connect with other beauty addicts. I know I connect with a lot of you here, but I would love to connect in this way too. If we get a few of us interested, we can decide on a theme and pick a date to post. smile.gif

Yay! I have a question for you. I've noticed that you experiment with nail polishes a lot. Which nail polish remover do you use? My nails have been no yucky and brittle since I've been changing out my polish, so I really need to find a better remover.

I was using pure acetone from CVS because I wanted something that removed glitter easily, but when I ran out I did not purchase it again because it was very drying.  Now I am using CVS strengthening polish remover with gelatin with cotton squares.  I think it removes just as well as the pure acetone, and I feel like my nails are getting stronger.  One thing that has made a huge difference is that I absolutely do not peel my polish off!  I used to do that when thick glitter would start popping off in sheets, but my nails were peeling and it was so gross.  I've used Julep's acetone free polish remover pads, but I have to use a million of those things to finish one hand.

Bah, sorry, I got distracted with school stuff and lost track of this thread. One idea I had about a blog collaboration is doing a makeup tips for beginners series where we all write about basic tips for beginners who are just getting into makeup. This could be anything from suggesting your favorite beauty boxes, brands, product types, brushes, beauty gurus, websites or anything else. That's just an example. If anyone has any other ideas, feel free to share. We could schedule it for the last week of May, perhaps, or later if people need more time. The only real guideline, I suppose, would be to link to the other participating bloggers, and it would be nice if we mentioned MUT in some way.

I think it would be fun to do a different "challenge" every week, or monthly or whatever. Like one week we could all create a look with a red lip, and do a smoky eye the next installment, experiment with a certain color the next week, etc. I'm no professional or anything, but I think it would be fun to link up and see everyone's interpretations!

    • I've finished my Yves Rocher Sensitive Vegetal mini cream, and I have moved on to a mini glass bottle of The Ghost Oil from Poetic Blend (October 2017 Petit Vour box). One of the great things about the No Buy/Project Use It Up is that it has freed me from my compulsive decluttering. Compulsive decluttering is a real thing that is recognized as a mental health issue. It is a compulsive need to get rid of things and throw things away, in an excessive manner. This is an attempt to control anxiety and other emotions. So many beautiful cosmetics ended up in my garbage pail, not old, well used things, but pretty things I loved and wanted. The compulsive decluttering arose from two primary emotional states, as far as I can tell. The first was unhappiness with my face and hair and appearance. I would try a product once or twice, then look in the mirror and feel disappointed. I felt I did not look any better. So I would throw away the pretty new items and go and look for something else. Now, I never look in the mirror and pick on myself. Instead, I look at my little jars and bottles and see how close they are to being used up. That is the goal now. It has taken the pressure off of using them and looking for a certain result on my face. Once an item is fully used, I know I have done the best I could with my looks, and that is all I can do. And I enjoy the pretty items. If I do see my face and think it looks bad, I just kindly tell myself I am tired from stress or work. In the past, I never gave the pretty lotions and makeup a chance. It takes time for lotions to work, and experimentation to learn to apply a particular makeup product to one's specific facial structure.  The second emotion that drove my compulsive decluttering was anxiety about money, about spending, frustration with wanting more than I could afford. I wanted to control all that, and I felt that by getting rid of the things I could make the anxiety and want go away. I would feel better for a bit after throwing things out, but it never solved my problems. I would go out and buy more the next day. Instead, now I use up all my things up instead of buying new, and I have the anxiety, guilt, and compulsive shopping under control. I threw away so many pretty things, and I regret it so much. I wasted things and money, and hurt myself really badly. I could have enjoyed so much more, saved so much money, been so much happier. The last time I decluttered was in 2017, before I began this No Buy, and it means so much to me.  **I should clarify that the cosmetics thrown away were new, expensive, and nice. I'm not talking about throwing away old, expired, broken things, or things I was allergic to. And it was not just a matter of a few things; it was just about all my things, for years and years, decades. I would buy nice things, use them one or twice, throw them away, and buy more. I hurt myself so much. I am so glad this is gone now.
