I got a little haul from the Yves Rocher January sale. 

Items from the 2018 Christmas collection. I always love the bath and body products Yves Rocher creates each Christmas. They always have beautiful packaging. These smell just like tea. I just fell in love with the packaging, and I adore tea. Yves always has a holiday makeup collection, too. The blue box is a highlighter duo. I was a little let down that it is made of cardboard, but I fell in love with that packaging also. 

Items from the 2018 Summer collection. I also love the special bath and body and makeup collections Yves comes out with for the summer. This year they had a Maracuja scent, which is passion flower and ginger. The bronzer is amazing - it is Monoi scented! I love the cheery yellow compact. 

The blue box is a free full sized perfume, GWP

These were super affordable. The bath and body items were two to four dollars each. The makeup items were the most costly, but were still under ten dollars each. Happy haul!

Expensive, but beautiful ... Guerlain Little Black Dress Top Coat. It is fragranced, and the scent is said to last 24 hours, so it's really a good value. A top coat, perfume, and collectible bottle all in one. That was my rationalization for getting it. 👿 The photo does not do it justice.

When I was on my No Buy I got tired of buying cotton pads all the time, and wished for some fabric facial pads. Now I am collecting them. They seem like an affordable and practical luxury. I got interested in Etsy sellers who make handmade versions with all kinds of cute fabrics.  I purchased from a seller called Garance Couture. They are so cute and are substantial and well made. They have terry cloth on the reverse side. 

Then I was innocently watching Serein Wu's No Buy vlog to be good. I love her No Buy vlogs. They are better than Netflix. She was using some fabric cotton rounds and had an amazon link to them, and I ended up buying them. What a pretty package, and so soft. They come with a little laundry bag. The company is called ProCIV. 

These are all too pretty to use, however. I might use them to apply toner to perfectly clean face, but take off mascara with them? Remove nail polish with them? I don't think so. So I'll probably still end up getting cotton pads.IMG_0450[1].JPG

I just found the Wet and Wild Rebel Rose Full Collection Box. Prettiest thing I have ever seen. It is me! Planning to get it as soon as I have the money. So romantic, and has skin care too. I WAAAAAAAANT IT!:6796-emoji:

I don't know how to add a photo, but you must see the brushes.

I calmed down since I saw the new Wet and Wild Rebel Rose Collection. I was so excited when I first saw it, and wanted to get the complete collection box for $59.99! I ended up just ordering the Rose Multi-Use Oil for now. It's the item I wanted most - it's in a beautiful glass bottle and has actual rose petals floating inside the bottle. I love it! For $7.99, I think it's a great buy! 

Next on my list would be the gorgeous black rose deign blush brush for $7.99. And maybe the toner for $7.99. I think I can be happy with just those three items. I narrowed it down, but man I am in love with this line! Wet and Wild says this collection marks a new direction of them beginning to get into skin care. I am excited for that, because if this is a sign of things to come, we will be able to have beautiful packaging and ingredients at a great price.

    • I was just wondering if you do? and if so is it hard to continually put make-up on everyday?
    • I was looking at natural ways to slim my face and came across this super detailed, well-sourced article on face exercises. I was skeptical, but there's quite a few studies to back this stuff up. All of the studies I've seen specifically tested the effects for women over 30 and found positive results. Anybody try face exercises before? I've started doing it for a week now and it's relaxing before going to bed. Not sure if the effects will be long-term YET, but I'm trying it out still.
    • The Harvey Prince perfume house sent me an email of some great sample sets they have available. For $5.00 I got their Deluxe Sample Set which has Hello Shampoo and Conditioner minis and some little sample vials of their perfumes. I am delighted with this little buy. I wanted to get samples of their Fango and Sea Salt Spray for the hair, but they are sold out. Maybe they will get more. I do enjoy their products; nice way to treat myself without guilt. 
    • I did it. It was hard. I got my new pretty pink credit card in the mail today. I activated it right away, then I called to close it and cut it up right away!!!!!! It feels bad. I wanted that card. I wanted freedom to buy more, eat more. I worked so hard to pay that card (which has a really bad APR) off during my No Buy. Then I opened that card again during my recent binge. I was so close to sliding back. In 2018 I reduced my credit card debts from 16 to 11, with a plan to get to 6 by the end of this year, and then this past month I signed up for four charge cards again. I won't have closure until the new ones are all received in the mail and closed. This is my main concern right now. It hurt to trash that new card, I wanted it, but I saved myself some grief!!!!!
