I am still trying to decide what items I want to buy. I am still trying to stalk my person to get a feel of their likes. Plus I want to mail my FGC her gift.

I'm still shopping too! Mostly done, 2 orders coming in tomorrow but there's still a few smaller things I need to pick up. We've still got time and if I can't mail early.....a "few things" may turn into like 5-6 things.

I still haven't spent any of my $25, but I've done several swaps and started game-planning what local goodies I want to include. I have the Birchbox wish list made, but I keep adding and subtracting things. Decisions are hard!

Work it out with Babs! That way we can make sure all the arrangements are properly made.

 

Yay congrats :)

Thanks! I will work it out with Babs!

Yesterday was just a lucky day because as I was running errands after work I literally stumbled upon (as in, walked into the endcap, I'm terribly clumsy sometimes) a neat item to add to my gift! It's something from a company I've tried before, but its a different item that seems to hit on something my buddy would like.  SCORE! I've spent nearly all of my $25, just one more thing to pick up and then I've got some little things to pick up.

Oh, man, is anyone having a hard time not shopping for themselves during this? I need to stop looking at the sale emails from my favorite places... like today, Butter London's "last orders" section is on clearance, and a couple of things from my wish list are on there... but I shouldn't buy them because my girl might have gone that route! Argh.

 

ETA: What puppymomofthree said! Don't need 'em, won't be bummed if I don't get 'em. :D

I know the feeling, I think I now have more BL polishes than any other brand, but Brummie is calling my name! I must be good, I already have overbought and have some of them on my trade list, and more that probably will end up there. Ok, I will be good swap buddy, I promise, and I will not be at all upset if there is no BL in my package--I have so many already!

All done my shopping...just waiting for things to arrive...have something to put together...

 

Some items won't arrive for a couple of weeks but I'm some should arrive this week.  I am hoping that they are as cool as they are in my head lol

 

Need to ensure that all can be packaged safely and that it will all fix in the designated box!

Lol Brummie....special to me - as that is where we went to have my son's surgery!  Brummie is slang for Birmingham or for someone that comes from Birmingham, England  :)  I love how they often use Brit slang for their names.  My daughter enjoys BL but I'm too lazy to do my nails!

Oh, I shouldn't have looked.  Those colored mascaras have captured my interest.  As has the pistol pink cream shadow and several of the polish colors.  I rarely paint my own nails, but oh pretty colors!

I've been good about not buying stuff on my list or that I have mentioned wanting to try in case my person has been stalking. It's actually been very helpful for the low-buy!

I have the pink and turquoise mascaras.  I haven't tried the pink yet, but I love the turquoise!  I don't usually wear eye shadow on the weekend, but with a bit of liner and colored mascara, I feel I've at least made an effort.

I missed the turqouise mascara, it is out now.  I am not sure I am brave enough for the pink.  But I did notice a few things that would be good for my swap buddy and I think I could buy myself the pink cream shadow, as I don't think that would be something my buddy would have picked out for me.  But the shipping cost is making me pause.  I have never ordered from BL before.  Do they have any promos for free shipping or first time orders?

BL is usually free shipping over $50.  I usually just "save up" orders for their products until they have some good deal or special I want, and usually have at least $50 worth of items to buy.  I highly recommend their Nail Foundation base coat and the PDQ top coat.  The Nail Foundation is a nice neutral color for me, so sometimes, I'll just wear that without any polish.  RetailMeNot shows a promo code -- SEVENTEEN20 -- as being 20% off sitewide.  That might help offset the shipping charge.  Haven't tried it myself, though.

I've been good about not purchasing things for myself, but I know I've over done it with the, but my gal might like something in these 10 Sample Society boxes! Ugh 50 samples is sounding overwhelming!

 

I have $$ at Neiman Marcus or Bergdorf Goodman and I'm trying my best not to buy a pen eyeliner, since I noted I'd like to try one on my ss post...but can't seem to pin down something I "need" to restock.

@@SaraP I am in the other boat wishing I had ordered some of those SS boxes!! My sample stash has definitely dwindled from my Circular Swaps & mega trading I've been doing lately. Whoops!

I'm glad that I ordered the SS boxes because my stash was practically nonexistent. Plus, I couldn't resist the potential for a ton of skincare samples - love them!

I LOVE Sooki and all of the patriotic trios but I am making myself resist... it is HARD. I did win one of the pink polishes yesterday though from their contest they were having on their FB page! First time ever winning a thing on FB, it made me feel SUPER accomplished.

I was so bummed that I missed that sale.  I already have Godiva; it is so pretty.  I don't have  Sooki and plus I could have finally picked up Bing.  Oh well....until the next sale.

I have been behaving.  Most of the things I have brought have been items I am pretty sure I will not receive.  I have been mostly shopping for clothes and cute earrings.  This season I am really loving maxi dresses.

    • There is no one foundation that works for all skin types. It is really important to choose a foundation according to your skin type- whether that’s oily, dry or combination. If your skin type is dry then you should use a hydrating or creamy foundation that can moisturise your skin as well provide a full coverage. If your skin is sensitive and prone to acne breakouts you should use an oil free foundation that doesn’t irritate your skin. This can be one with a stick formula, powder formula, serum formula etc. It will be even better if the foundation is lightweight too. In order to find your perfect foundation its best to visit a store and ask for foundations according to your skin specification. You can try a few and then settle on what works best for your skin type and provides the kind of coverage you want. Hope this helps!
