I've done well this month, too.  For some reason, setting a $ limit is working much better than an "I can buy this many of that thing, and NONE of these!"  My brain seems to take that as a challenge.  A dollar limit lets me be so much more flexible!

 

You have no idea! I know that I was spending WAYYYYY too much money, but I didn't realize just how much until I spent like, uh, none and saw what my checking account looked like! It was quite the nice surprise! But I'm heavily contemplating the Benefit Advent calendar.... must.say.no.

Don't do it!!! But yeah, I like how my bank account looks when I'm not shopping. Next, my boyfriend and I gotta work on not eating out. Whenever we're out of food we end up going out to dinner until we hit the grocery store... Yup. Adds up quick! I also looove MUT because I love trading but looking back on my past trades, shipping definitely adds up! My boyfriend makes fun of be since I'm still "paying for makeup" by way of shipping. Whatever, man.

Haha yes!  I hear you!  I can buy ALL the sales and good deals, but ultimately, I'm still spending money!

 

Question for everyone... how do you handle getting some unexpected $?  I asked for a refund for my Bondi subs (2 months, so $40).  I kind of want to spend it on duplicate polishes for the ones I won't get now.  Or I can put it towards the Winter Allure Box.  Or maybe the Benefit Advent Calendar?  It's possible I have this money spent in my head at least 3x over, even if it hasn't hit my account yet!

 

Also, I'm looking for a new sub.  Can't decide between Sample Society or something less makeup-y/skincare-y.

The good-girl answer would be "save the $40 anyway!" but if you're set on spending it I'd say the Benefit Advent Calendar looks very tempting :beer: 

 

LOL that's probably too enabling, sorry.

This is our biggest problem - eating out or grabbing quick meals from somewhere. It makes a huge difference if we take 30 minutes on the weekend and plan the week's meals before we go grocery shopping. Turns out we have a ton of meat in our freezer that we forget about when we try to figure out what to eat an hour before dinner.

    • Hey loves! First of all I hope you all had a amazing christmas! ♡ Today I have this Smoked out brown eye makeup tutorial for you. I hope you enjoy the video! Who's going Smokeyyy for NYE? XOXO   http://eunsetee.com/UA1k    
    • Hi Cuties! ♡ . I was a little bit uninspired but felt like a lot of you might just like a simple glitter eye look using brown shades! Ofcourse I wanted to use the morphe palette because I wanna make as many different possible looks for ya'll so you know exactly what kind of looks you can achieve with the palette. It has so many abilities! For this look I did use some glitter to give it that little extra but of course when you recreate this and you don't have glitter you can also just use shimmery shades which will look pretty as well! XXX Hope you like the video & If you have any suggestions for my next video let me know 😄 ♡  http://eunsetee.com/U9Ak

    • I had to wear a full face of “performance makeup” every day for 8 months, and let me tell you it's slightly exhausting. These last 3 months I've only worn make up once and it's been amazing. Makeup makes me stand out, and sometimes it's nice to just blend in and focus on the interior and not the exterior. And NOT trying to sound snobby or pretentious, just wanted to answer the question honestly and compare treatment! https://dausel.co/UHxR44
