Yay! welcome back!
Thanks! I'm so behind butatthe same time I'm staying away to not be tempted. I think it is working because I did't purchased anything yet and I'm holding off to used my sephora gift card. I think I will purchased a perfume as nothing really tempt me and if I want it the product is out of stock soooo lucky me I guess.

I ended up using a €10 freebie from Sephora (for forgetting to send two Christmas gifts because I'm a gold member), so I ended up picking up 7 footmasks ( the holiday versions were half of!) and 2 hand masks for my mom. She is a diabetic and she really loves the Sephora footmasks, her doctor even complimented her using them. I ended up paying 14,26 instead of 24,26. And 5,9 of that is even shipping. So while I technically did spend more than my allocated budget, I don't feel as bad since it's a present (though I'm sure I might be able to sneak one my way haha)

Will not buy anything anymore this January!

So budget : 150
Actually spent: Just a little under 155 for me, and a gift a little under 15 euros.
I think I did well this month! New goal is to stay in budget next month!

Hauled some skincare from Sephora recently (mostly repurchases of various bits I’ve been using), turned in some points for samples (all skincare there, too) and got a sample of the Hourglass setting powder with a code (the only makeup thing I got). Last time I got “paid” by Rakuten I converted it to a gift card and used that. Sephora was also 8% back on Rakuten when I ordered.

Likely won’t be making any proper makeup purchases this month.

I really need to make time to post properly in this thread (hi everyone!) but before I do, shellygrrl shellygrrl would you like my Feed the Senses? When I've worn it lately I'm not enjoying it as much as I used to so it's been added to my donate pile, and I know it's a favourite for you and I'd be happy to send it to a loving home! It's definitely used, but probably at least half left. If you're interested drop me a PM :)

Month of January shopped the sales online once. Bought moisturizer and cleanser , 2 highlighters gold and copper , 1 mini lipstick Rose Hibiscus and a Xmas holiday kit: makeupbag including Red lipstick and red lip pencil. Total euro 29.50 = usd 32.72 KikoMilano
Thinking about what to buy in this month of February.
Today washed the makeup brushes.
Thinking about doing inventory of all the things beauty.
Face today is the new red lip color and the gold highlighter both very pretty.

January goal: My goal for January was to focus on buying products to assist with my dehydrated skin based on the recommendation from my new esthetician. So far, I'm really enjoying these purchases. I also focused on clearing out products that I either don't like using anymore or haven't used in some time. I gave away a lot of skincare products due to them not addressing my skin needs.

January highlight: I had my first dermaplaning appointment! I went towards the end of January, and I'm enjoying the results so far. It could be the dermaplaning or the products I'm using now, but I see and feel a noticeable difference in how moisturized my skin looks and feels.

Product of the month: Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence- The jury is out on the effectiveness of it, but I do enjoy applying it due to the texture

On the horizon: I don't expect to spend the same amount in February as I did in January. I don't have any makeup or hair goals, but I would like to focus on testing out my new skincare products.

Forgot to give my closing 2019 update!

I spent $2,271.74 in 2019, roughly $52 less from 2018. The majority of this amount was from skincare. Most of the makeup I bought were repurchases and I didn’t buy as much haircare as compared to the other categories.

I also notice that my focus has gradually shifted from makeup to skincare. I’m not as experimental with makeup anymore and I’ve found my staple products.

Based on this, my 2020 goals are:
  • Spend 25% less in 2020: This will be around $1703.81
  • Treat the problem rather than shop for the solution: I started seeing an esthetician a few weeks ago and she gave me some great recommendations on products to address my dryness and dehydrated skin situation. I’m also interested in seeing a dermatologist at some point to address areas of my face that still haven’t approved after using products designed to address it, so I’m thinking there’s something internally going on and I’d rather get a prescription than play around with products that won’t work for me. I’d also rather get more treatment such as facials and the like that address my skin concerns. Not sure if I will be tracking the amount of these services
  • Shop my stash more: I didn’t do as well as I would have liked in 2019. There were months where I really focused on using up what I have but the rest of the year I didn’t think much about it. Partly due to traveling more for my business and taking the same products with me while on the road
  • Evaluate what I really need and like using: This is a No Buy situation for me. I observed that there are products I no longer want to buy because they aren’t integral to my routine anymore, I don’t see any significant changes, or I just don’t use these kinds of products anymore. This includes face masks, face primer, blush, lip liners, eye liners, and highlighters. Other products like eyeshadow I enjoy using but I don’t feel the need to purchase this in 2020
  • Keep track of how much I spend per category: I do a good job in tracking my purchases and the amounts but this year I also want to be more mindful of where my money is actually going. Most of my money went towards skincare in 2019 and I’m hoping spend less once I narrow down to products that work for me.
  • Don’t spend just because there’s a sale happening: Most of my money was spent during a VIB sale, Ulta sale, or a sale directly from the company. I also got into the habit of buying backups when I’ve never done that before. Some products I bought simply because they were on sale.
  • Allow myself to buy something each month: I noticed I would overspend If I went a while without purchasing anything. So remedy this, I’ll allow myself a budget of $141.98 (my spend goal divided by 12). I already overspent in January 2020 but I’m currently on track for February. I don’t have any plans to roll over what I don’t spend to the next month but I really want to adhere to my annual spending max goal
  • Let go of VIB Rouge: I ended up making Rouge again. I don’t see the point of the program anymore though I do like making the bulk of my purchases in one store. I don’t mind losing my Rouge status. I did lose my Obsessed status with MAC
  • Have fun with makeup: I want to get back in the habit of having fun with makeup again. I don’t feel the need to purchase a lot of makeup as I have my staples now, but I want to play around with what I do have. I don’t even remember the last time I applied eyeshadow.

I love everything about your post! :heart: See notes below :)

Forgot to give my closing 2019 update! - Yay! Your post is super valuable!

I also notice that my focus has gradually shifted from makeup to skincare. I’m not as experimental with makeup anymore and I’ve found my staple products.

Based on this, my 2020 goals are:
  • Spend 25% less in 2020
  • Treat the problem rather than shop for the solution: I love this phrase and philosophy! It is totally how I am approaching my skincare...I just didn't have a phrase that speaks to it. :five:

  • Shop my stash more: I am totally doing this now! And it is also helping me weed out products. I just came across the Jaclyn Hill x Becca palette. . I just do not use it...and if I really want Champagne Pop, I can buy the single...But I have dupes by MJ and MAC. It will be gifted in February.

  • Evaluate what I really need and like using
  • Keep track of how much I spend per category:

  • Don’t spend just because there’s a sale happening: I skipped the Ulta Prestige 20% coupon - Both of them. I had no need. I refuse to go over budget. Another sale will be along shortly!

  • Allow myself to buy something each month
  • Let go of VIB Rouge
  • Have fun with makeup - Amen! Makeup should be a joyous and fun pursuit!

Low / No Buy Journal 2020
January Check-In – Part II

I did my January check-in super early, and thought it would be good to do a part two.


Purchases:
No new beauty or skincare.

Bossman (aka Hubs) bought me two small packs of Shiseido Cotton Pads.

Long story short, we got popped with a $100 overweight bag fee on our flight out. So, we decided to buy an extra suitcase for our return trip from Texas and just pay the extra $30 for the bag. Should have thought of that in the first place! DOH!:doh: While in Marshalls I strolled over to the beauty, skin, hair section and found the pads...discounted.

o_OSpeaking of which, I saw so many well-known brands! The amount was ridiculous! I can see how this could be super tempting. Better still, if you are on a budget, wait for things to go on sale / clearance!

Favorites:heart:
Kopari Shimmer Glow + MAC Extra Dimensional Skin Finish in Glorify on tan skin = Perfect sparkly sunkissed nighttime skin!
:sunshine:

MJ See-Quins layered on top of MJ Liquid See-Quins (Both in Copperazzi) = Sparkly shiny eyes! :love:

Pat McG Blitztrance in Flesh Fatale

Mascara Round Up: MJ Velvet Primer - Full Size

Used Up:
Stridex Sensitive Pads; 3.8 OZ Clinique Take Off the Day Balm

Disposed Of:
4 old Ben Nye eyebrow pencils – Old kit materials

Gave Away: Nothing for January

Big Girl Stuff: More next month.

Healthstuffs:
Back ache update: Doing much better. Vacation definitely helped. I was pretty active the entire time…which you would think would be counterproductive. However, I have come to realize sitting (for long stretches of time) may be one of the main culprits. I was already thinking this before vacation. So upon my return, I purchased a standing desk riser, Flexispot, which arrived yesterday. I also ordered a Topo Mini (anti-fatigue standing desk mat) to stand on. I look at these as an investment in self-care and health. I will report back.

Flexispot_Purple_Work_Feb_20.jpg TopoMini_Mat.JPG

I also had an unexpected expense. My Fitbit Versa “died” on the last day of vacation. I felt naked being untethered…lol So, after reading several reviews, I purchased the Versa 2. The day I got it and set it up, I discovered my old Versa was not dead…but apparently protesting its continuous use.:mad:
I cleaned it up and gave it to a co-worker using an older model Fitbit. She loves it! And I love the new model Versa!

Homestuffs:
Here are a few pictures of our training room completed. You will see I have a constant training companion in each picture. She is always with me during my early morning cardio. I have to be careful, because she will get right under my feet or sit on the bench where I am working. Hilarious.

WorkoutRoom_20.jpg WorkoutRoom_2_20.jpg
Nan_WorkoutPartner_20.jpg

Also, a couple years ago (maybe even 3)…Bossman gave me a really nice double-sided lighted mirror...Which sat in a box unopened…because I wanted to hang it after I painted my bathroom…which was 20 months ago! :scram: We finally got it up. I love it!

Okay…that is it for part deux! Wishing everyone a great weekend!

So my goal is to not order anything but I WANT SO MUCH THINGS ! :cry:

I know i'm lame but the worst is I want another perfume, another Antica Murrina Venezia necklace and some fluevog shoes ... I will wait for an amazing sales I.NEED.TO.

Win for the month
I really wanted the Natasha Denona Love palette but I have her cranberry palette and it is the same colours and the other half i have those colours ten time in my other palettes and singles.
So i no dont want it anymore.
Also want some Sonia G brushes but she take the longuest time to restock on beautylish so i'm in no hurry to make an order.
I was tempted by Rephr but this look fishy I dont know why i feel that way with that company maybe it is because they are too much present on YT/social media for me (*like morphe*) 😬
I'm making good progress in finishing makeup (foundation, panning a palette, hitting pan on some eyeshadows, redescovering old palettes etc.)

Back pain: Have you try doing some hip raise it is the most basic stupid excercise that is working miracle for lower back pain. everytime i feel a pain or weekness in the lower back i'm doing 3 sets of 10 for each side and it does the trick. it is a must while training for a marathon and hitting the pavement for 80km to 100km a week.

FITbit versa do you need to wear a waist ban for heart beat? I have a polar M400 and the first time that gave up was the heart beat monitor with the waist ban. it still count my steps and my distance but I know after 2 years it is already dated. mind you i'm not a gadget girl I only need to have a stop watch for when i'm running in the city and I need to stop at some intersection but sometimes it is nice to just more data on your workout.

January 2020
Purchases:
Beautylish Lunar New year brush $125.00. i used a $100 Beautylish Gift card I received for Christmas.

Gave Away /Disposed Of/Used UP:

Gave away: nothing this month, but i have a few palettes that are on the chopping block that i rarely use. if i don't use them in the upcoming weeks, they will go to a new home.

Used Up:

NARS Catus flower cream blush. My last back up It's all gone! :cry: I will try their new liquid/cream blush at some point. At the moment I'm using my NARS powder blushes, and i'm content. NARS eyeshadow base.

On The Horizon: Sonia G sky eye set. I would like to purchase another set, I really enjoy these and have been using them every week since I purchased. would like to have an additional set to give these a break.

monthly favourites/ reflections- My single eyeshadow palettes. I created a purple palette and a neutral palette from various indie brands,I gave the ND metropolis palette a rest after using it non-stop since I picked it up. I have been using the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer this month, Giorgio Armani concealer, and the new NARS ORASM x blush I got for Christmas, it's the WOC friendly version of orgasm, I love it! for 2020 my goal is to become a beauty insider at Sephora. I didn't re-rouge last year which was fantastic, and I really want to spend less there. I also want to spend 25% less on my overall beauty budget this year.

Suddenly every beauty YouTuber I watch is speaking of these brushes. A couple of years ago I would have fallen for it so hard, now I just back away when something starts to pop up so suddenly. Maybe if it was just Mel T or Michele W but since they started doing collabs with brands I'm iffy. Plus Hannah LP mentions them and I don't trust her at all, she's become such a PR shell out. Anything she mentions I will carefully avoid.

Wow, I can't believe I'm already here to post that my budget is gone for the month.
I bought from Chanel official site: a new eyeshadow palette and some multi gloss cream (89€) and lipstick 37€. The gloss thing is horrible btw, but I will force myself to use it as I cannot return.

Then I was generously gifted a 40€ gift card from my mom for valentines day (too sweet) for a local cosmetic store, which I ended up combining with a 20% coupon so I ended up paying a little under 29€ for my Chanel Hydra Beauty Micro Serum. Which all in total comes up to a little bit under 155 (just like last month 5 over budget, but last month I was able to wait longer, ai ai ai)


I do have a confession, I had a work personal talk yesterday and while it wasn't bad it wasn't the outcome I was hoping for. I ended up watching youtube videos and saw one that said "Full face with Dior", and was a sucker and made an order on the Dior site for just under 150€. I tried twice and twice it gave me a server error, but when I logged in on another browser they both appear in my order list? So weird. Nothing has been reserved on my visa. Anyways I already shot them a mail that I want to cancel one (obviously) but not even sure if the money for the first one was received. So if I can cancel it I will, if not I will take it and make either March, April, June or July a no buy month for anything beauty.

First depends when the Chanel Les Beiges collection hits the site (love Les Beiges, pick up at least one thing each year), and I hope I will hate the Chanel summer collection lol.

I had my eyes on the Nars overlust? afterglow? the cheek palette but seems like that will be pushed to the back burner. Def will need to buy foundation next month, I will work with what I have this month.


Does anyone have any tips how to be stronger and stick to resolutions more?
I need to be able to step off the buying train for whenever I'm sad. I don't even buy for myself alone, I buy for everyone because of the shopping high :(

Anyways let me say it officially: I am done for the month!
