My Low Buy Year

Hannah Louise Poston is a great resource if you want to analyse your spending habits and cut down on shopping.


Since watching her uploads, I've noticed it impacting other Beauty YouTubers I like:


The beauty industry is really ovadoing it with the releases cause they realise consumers are just lapping it up. We really need to take stock of what we have and be more mindful of what we're purchasing.

Personally I'm at a point where not much excites me and I truly need to cut my eye at the people tings 😁 That and Auntie Mia wanna put VAT on online purchases 👀I dunno how we gine survive bout hey! Of course I still wanna support the local M.A.C counters and attend Beauty Tradeshows so I gotta be realistic. A low buy suits me just fine.

My rules, starting December 1, 2018:

  • no new concealer purchases 
2016 Concealer Collection - www.modenmakeup.com
  • no new powder (loose or pressed) purchases
  • no new blush purchases
  • no new skincare purchases *wheeze*
  • no new nail polish purchases *gasp*
  • no new pencil eyeliner purchases *I am seriously questioning my sanity here*
  • no more than five beauty purchases per month (Tradeshows excluded becausin...reasons)
  • repurchases are allowed only if all suitable product substitutes have been used entirely
I'd also like to get my lip products down to 100 by the end of 2019. We'll see how that goes 😂

What spending habit goals do you have for 2019? Lets support each other in the comments 👊

Well howdy to a flaming 2020 💣

Ok, let's remain positive and do what we have to to beat this thing.


If you're looking for a brief escape from the onslaught of bad news, #nojudgementzone here. Let me hop back into this blogging thing for a much needed source of distraction and hopefully; a lil product information.

We've never really talked about perfumes before so let's do that:


Maison Margiela REPLICA 'Dancing On The Moon' 0.04 fl. oz.

Description: "Dancing On The Moon is an invitation to an extraterrestrial escape.
The fragrance delicately combines a bouquet of white flowers with a soft mineral side.
White Jasmine flower is lifted by aldehydes and moonflower notes.
As the perfume evolves, the warmer notes of ambergris, musk and vanilla emerge.

Feel the weightlessness of your body slip away from reality.
Your ethereal moves cast pale shadows on the lunar landscape.
A gracious defiance.

This bright Eau de Parfum is part of the Replica Fantasies Collection.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.
