Hey Jaylilee! Happy Birthday, girl! My birthday is tomorrow..... I'll be *gulp* 30!!!!!! Big one! :wacko2::oldlad:

Anyway, I think you did an awesome job of balancing needs and wants. After all, you're doing a 365 day no-buy, which is huge, you deserve some birthday presents, whether they are makeup or not! I hope you really like your blush. That's one of my weaknesses too :blush2: :blush2: :blush2:  , and I definitely have more than I need, but hey, live a little! :sunshine:

HAPPY BIRTHDAAAAY!!!!!!  :wizard:  :king:  :hugs3:

 

I hope you have a good one.

 

And yeah, 365 day no-buy is def. going to be a big one since we've only been at this for 22 days but I am confident I can do it! Birthday presents aside, I haven't really felt the urge to shop, and am learning more and more about myself in the process.. Obviously I've been rediscovering and experimenting with my stash a lot longer than just 22 days, since I really cut back in 2014, but I've learned my likes and dislikes and what I really need vs. the wants gimmies.

Does anyone know what happened to the Days 20-30 No Buy Challenge thread? I can't seem to access it.

 

 

I can't find it either....

I can't find it either!  It just disappeared!  @ @ can you all see it from the mod side?  Was it taken down for a reason?  TIA!

I was just looking too and couldn't find it!

 

Anyways, haven't been posting much due to some health issues but no buy in tact! Not gonna lie, struggling right now. I'm bored, I'm not feeling well, the "you deserve new pretties" mindset is creeping in hardcore. But ultimately I know it won't make me feel better and I'm SO CLOSE to making a month that I want to hold on.

I'm looking and I don't see it, but I have a theory.  One member's account got messed up (thankfully it's restored now) but I think it affected some threads she started, and I think that was one of them!  I'm going to restart the thread, give me a few and I'll link it.

:w00t:  Good job, everyone!!!!!!!!!!  :w00t:

 

Note to those who slipped up during this 10-day period: :hugs3:

Good for you for being honest with yourself and for scrutinizing your actions.

Definitely feel the guilt, but don't let it defeat you. You have to feel it to move forward, but you also have to forgive yourself and try to work on your actions in the future. Take it from me, I slipped up in days 11-20. It wasn't a good feeling, and I can't take it back, but it will definitely keep me on the right track for a long time to come. :blush2::smilehappyyes:

So I missed the first 30 days but have decided that I am on a no buy for eyeshadow for this whole year. But I will start small and try to make it to the 100 day mark first. Doing pan that palette has shown me that it takes a year to use one palette. I have over 10 large shadow palettes so I could go at least ten years without buying eyeshadow if they magically didn't go bad forever. Too. Much. Eyeshadow. Must stop the madness!

I like the way you think.   Honestly, I don't need any eye shadow or blush or bronzer or any more lip products of any description for the foreseeable future and not buying any for an entire year would probably be very good for me.

This could sound quite enabler-ish so you may not want to read it depending on your state of mind...

 

 

 

There are Lancome GWPs at Sears, The Bay, and Lancome.ca simultaneously - under normal circumstances, Lancome = Kryptonite...  if I see a GWP and I end up justifying to myself there is something I need or something I should really try this time around.  However, I am being successful at convincing myself there is nothing in any of the GWPs that I could possibly need and no products I should try or products I need to replenish. Then, I look at my crazy-huge stash and that seems to cement my decision to not buy. Today I set aside items to donate to a women's shelter.  Most of these items were beauty related and most of the beauty items I was donating also happen to be Lancome items from GWPs!  Probably some time after April 10th and before my last Artliner goes bad in July, I will make a Lancome purchase and that will likely be one Artliner in either black or brown and hopefully a GWP with something cool in it like the Nutrix body lotion.

    • I regrew my hair and you can too. –I've been bleaching my hair on and off since forever. My hair wouldn't grow any longer it would just snap off. I've dreamed about having thick, long hair. And when I say dreamed, I mean it quite literally. So I decided to do something about it. My friend suggested Biotin when we were talking about my hair loss. I’ve tried like 4 different brands until I found that the best one for me. For me, the best is https://bit.ly/2KiqCge my friends also use this one.
    • Please help. My hair has always been my pride and joy. I figured since it is pretty damn healthy, it could deal with some bleach damage. And I figured the master stylist who did all the color-corrections would know how much would be too much. I was wrong, and now I want to burst into tears every time I look at my hair or touch it. I just don't know what to do. My hair has also NEVER been shorter than this and it breaks and falls out. What should I do to regrow hair?
    • I know that working at home is very difficult because you are constantly distracted by household chores. In order to be able to share work and personal life, I recommend that you arrange your personal office near your home. I use part of our garage for this. This is really a workplace that is very convenient and cozy. I made a small garage repair, then I chose  sohomod office furniture . I made a really good place to work.
    • I support legalize, everybody wins from it. Medical weed, cbd cartridges and special vape pods can help people with a lot of different health issues, meanwhile marijuana cultivating and distributing is very profitable. Moreover, there will be less job for dealers on the streets.
