30 Minutes of Beauty Shopping Per Day

Recommended Posts

This is my newest idea. I resolve that I will limit myself to 30 minutes [no more] of beauty shopping per day. This includes:

  • Watching beauty related YouTube videos
  • Following beauty box spoilers
  • Checking to see what's new on my favorite sites
  • Opening new packages that come in the mail 

Each day I will post very briefly how I spent my 30 minutes and how the plan is working.

Using my old products in my project use it up/pan does not count toward the 30 minutes. This is only related to looking for and getting new stuff. I cleaned my room today and I tracked my whole day today (I deleted the post after out of shame) and I realized I spend every waking moment on this stuff! This will begin at midnight tonight. 🕛 I also closed two credit cards today. I am taking back my power.

Day One: 2:40 am - 3:10 am - I always wake up at this time and love to go online to shop! I love this quiet time. It's stormy out. I don't have a cent to shop today. I set up a new account on Yves Rocher. I had deleted the old one, but really want to place an order. I discovered the Holiday Edition Comme Une Evidence fragrance - the box and bottle are so beautiful. It is $23.00. I checked for Birchbox updates and Glossybox spoilers. I have a March Glossybox in the mail. I went on the Focallure web site. I want the new babebox. Now my half hour is up, and I need to be on No Buy until midnight. No looking at anything new. I don't feel sleepy at all now; I feel wide awake. I can watch Serein Wu's new No Buy vlog today if I want - I am allowed to watch No Buy content. 🕒

Day Two: 12:00 am-12:30 am - I did it! I did not shop or check online yesterday after 3:10 am. I went back to bed and had a nice rest. I woke up feeling rested, clear headed, focused, and motivated. I was productive at work. It was a big day. I came home and had my dinner and went to bed. I woke up thirsty and it was midnight, time for my shopping half hour! My Shop Miss A package had come in the mail, so I opened that. I got two soaps, Aloe Vera and Black Soap, a packet of cleansing conditioner, fade cream for oily skin, and perfume oil called Night Queen. And when I got up to open my package, my brother came with a bag of vintage earrings his friend had sent for me! They are lovely, special and a sign from the universe that I am doing the right thing letting go and cutting back. I don't have to chase good things all the time. Let go, and they will come to you. After I opened my new things and put them away (there's no more room in my soap storage box, an old mailer from the French Box subscription), it was 12:18. I checked to see if I had any Birchbox spoilers yet, and if there were any new Glossybox spoilers. There were none, so I went to look again at the Yves Rocher Comme Une Evidence Holiday perfume bottle. I still love it. That's all for today. No more shopping or checking for the rest of the day. It's going well so far. 🕛

Day Three: 12:00 am -12:30 am - Yesterday I saw there were some beauty box spoilers out, but I told myself I had to wait until it was my shopping half hour to look at them. I went to bed after dinner and woke up at 10:50, and organized my finances and some papers while waiting for midnight. When midnight arrived, I checked my Birchbox account. No update on my March box yet. Maybe they have not assembled my box yet. I changed my profile to state that I would wish for fragrances, instead of hair care. I don't need new shampoo any more, and Birchbox sends nice perfume samples. Then I checked on Glossybox. I saw a new spoiler for a cleanser called Nuria. I went to check it out. I hope I get the one with Mandarin Orange extract from Japan! Next, time to check Target's March Beauty Box. Love at first sight! Love the Bliss Rose Gold cleanser. I might get this box when I get paid. I saw that Boxycharm is doing a skincare box in April, and that Allure is sending a La Mer set to new subscribers. That's a nice looking toner they have in the March Allure box. Finally, I went back to Yves Rocher, and looked at the perfume I like again. I enjoy looking at it. Of course, I found other things I like on the site. That was fun. No more shopping for 24 hours now. After all, it is Ash Wednesday. 🙏

Day Four: 12:00-12:30 am - I still don't have an update on my March Birchbox. It looks like my March Glossybox will arrive today. I saw spoilers for Glossybox Version 1, but I think I am getting Version 2. Version 1 has a cool French brand called DWTN Paris - they have modernistic, yet delicate and natural face makeup called "Eau de Teint." There was also a nice Manna Kadar mascara in the box. I checked to see if the Target Beauty Box is still in stock. I still love it. Then, I wanted to check out the toner in the March Allure Beauty Box spoilers, Mamonde Rose Toner. I thought Mamonde must be a great French pharmacy brand, but it's actually a K Beauty brand! I lost myself in Mamonde's beautiful website. They have their own flower gardens; the entire line is based on flowers. They have gorgeous retail stores. I like the rose petal bubble masque. I enjoyed the site so much, I signed up for their email list. Then I went to the Allure site, debating whether I should get the March bag because of the Mamonde. It's nice that Allure is sending makeup bags now. That's it for today, no more shopping until tomorrow, even though I get my pay in the morning. 🌹

I messed up on this plan yesterday and today. I felt better while I was on it. Every day at midnight is a chance to try again! Maybe I'll try it again! Try it again tomorrow!

Saturday 2:40-3:10 am - I purchased some things I've really been wanting - March Target Beauty Box, Wet and Wild Rebel Rose Toner and Blush Brush, and from IKateHouse, Couture Contour Beauty Bag and 2012 Nail Polish from Cherimoya. I also signed up for the March Sephora Play! box. When I was off this plan Thursday and Friday, I resubscribed for April Ipsy, and also got the Yves Rocher things I wanted, and signed up for Focallure box. I think I pretty much got all I wanted. Some of these were excellent buys, although the Focallure box is a bit anxiety inducing as it's expensive, and hard to cancel after the free month. NOW, no more shopping until midnight Sunday! This may be a little hard, as it's Saturday and I have nothing to do. I am telling myself that even if I am bored, if I keep myself from looking online, I'll be doing something major - I will avoid spending money, and seeing more things I want! It will be an accomplishment. :flowers:

Estee Lauder bonus at Macy's and also a beauty fridge set. They are offering past beauty bags as GWP when you get something and even when you get a prom dress. Lancome has some amazing new perfumes and Estee is bringing back the 60s and 70s perfumes.

I'm ashamed of all the things I put on here. It's another habit I wish I would not do.

    • Dog pet carriers are the smart, sophisticated way to fly, shop, and travel with your dog. These stylish pet carriers feature various designs. For instance, you can find these convenient pet carriers in sleek and sexy models, fun and flirty themes, or colorful and creative carriers, you can find more pet product in this site.  Whichever you choose, there are a variety of different sizes and features you can choose to customize your dog’s travel experience.      Several of the pet carriers are also airline-approved. Check with the airline first, to ensure that the pet carrier you’ve selected meets the specific guidelines. Flights that are shorter than six hours, typically allow passengers to carry their pet with them on the flight (with the condition that they are secured below the seat in front of them with the proper airline-approved pet carrier). Be sure to make reservations for your pet, as well, because many of the airline guidelines only allow two or three pets per flight.       These convenient pet carriers come in various sizes ranging from super-small to medium-size carriers. A large dog pet carrier is designed to transport pets weighing anywhere from up to 20-22 pounds. These larger models are available in different versions; for instance, there is a carrier version with convenient carrying handles, or another version has wheels for easy maneuvering. Small dog pet carriers are even more versatile and can be found in almost any style, including backpacks and purse-style carriers. And these small carriers are perfect for any small dogs ranging from toy-size to teacup. Both of these carrier options make it easy to transport your medium or small dog, anywhere you need to go!     When shopping for a pet carrier for the dog, you’ll want to remember these simple tips. Keep the size of your dog in mind when searching for a dog carrier. To ensure a safe and comfortable ride for your pup, you’ll need to make sure that the carrier you select provides ample room for your dog to turn around, lie down, and stand up. It also helps to know your dog’s approximate size and weight before you purchase a carrier. Also, be sure that your pooch will get enough air ventilation with the carrier you choose. If you are transporting your dog in the car, make sure there is enough room in the car for the carrier. You’ll also want to inspect the interior of the carrier, where your dog will be spending the most time to be sure that there is enough padding to provide a comfortable ride for your dog. Another helpful tip is to provide an extra pillow and possibly, a small toy for your dog to play with on the trip.     Express your dog’s personality with a personalized pet carrier. These convenient carriers feature various models designed for an array of uses and can be found in sizes that fit most dogs from teacup-size to medium (up to 22 pounds!). After traveling with a pet carrier, you will wonder how you ever traveled without one. Dog pet carriers can be a lifesaver for any trip whether you’re going to the grocery store or flying cross-country, you’ll know that your pet feels safe, comfortable, and classy.

    • Who doesn’t want an even toned skin? No matter your skin type, our skin functions the same way, it sheds the old, dead skin to reveal a newer, healthier one underneath. Exfoliation is a method of sloughing away dead skin cells from the outer layer of your skin by using any kind ofexfoliants. It’s quite an easy thing to do and can be fun, satisfying even, because it not only breaks the monotony of just using cleansers for your face, but you also get to see the results right after.  Pleasing as it may be, though, it can also be easy to either use the wrong type of exfoliants for your skin or do it incorrectly that you end up not getting your desired outcome. Here’s a quick guide on how to properly exfoliate your skin: https://bit.ly/37sl367   How do you exfoliate?
