April Empties 2017

I know I’m about two days early for my monthly empties, but I am ready to empty my wicker basket and start collecting for May, my birthday month. I am hoping to go through more beauty products next month, since it is my birthday month. I will probably be wearing more makeup anyway. I also have EXCITING news on my Pan That Pallet progress, at least exciting for me. LOL. This was a lighter month with less empties, but I am happy that I finished off two makeup products. I also have three more on their last legs, so I am hoping to have 5 or more makeup empties in May. I have so many update posts to write, but I love being busy on my blog. I might have a May Reads post this month, because I made a promise to myself to read an hour on Saturday and Sunday. I hope that I can keep that promise. I’ll be back to reading more once I finish my last class for my Associates Degree in Information Technology.

It was a slow month with a few product multiples, but I really enjoyed using what I have up. I currently have a lotion on its last legs and I think I might use another mini lotion after I use this one up. I never realized how much I really had before I did my collection videos. I knew that I had a lot, but it really puts it in perspective. I know how much I can use up and I strive to enjoy using up my stuff everyday. I don’t want to be the girl with 20 lotion backups anymore. I think I can have a few in back-stock once I use up what I have. Naturally, when I go B&BW shopping, I will be shopping the annual sale and the buy 3, get 3 free sale. Naturally, I will have multiples of products, but it won’t bother me. I’m not going to buy more on top of that. It keeps the back-stock reasonable when you just buy once. Once I run out of something, I’ll do another haul when I can, but I’m really loving my mindset right now. Very zen and minimalistic. I really love minimalism. I got my closet down so much that now, I can go out and do a clothing haul to buy pieces I will love and that will last. I don’t want to support consumerism anymore.

With Love ❤

    1. Yup! I have a ton of foil packets to use up. LOL. I’m trying to go through them and actually, I have a foundation on my drugstore list because of a foil packet you gave me. It is my perfect color and keeps me matte. I’ll be talking about it in a post. I plan on picking it up some time in May. I don’t use foundation often, but it was really nice and I still have one use left. I’m going to be working on my darker bb creams, but I’ll be using some self tanner you gave me. I’m thinking halfway through May, I’ll be able to start using them. I plan to be outside more this summer with Dean, so a tan will be more believable.

      1. YAY! I’m really getting into self-tanners. I think it’s nice during the summer and my skin only goes like a shade or two darker. It’s a nice bronzed look. I could never go darker than two shades. It would look unnatural I think. My skin is a bit darker than yours. I could imagine that you could get a bit orange using self tanners. The Sally Hansen legs is a little orange looking on me, so I use a little bit mixed into my lotion when I wear a dress/skirt.

      2. I don’t like to use them because they’re loaded with chemicals. I’ve come to peace with my general ultra white skin, but it does tan and freckle in the summer. Usually I just pass any tanning products i receive of to you or occasionally my mom might use them. She’s been getting more interested in clothes and beauty lately, I’m not sure why. She went through a similar phase when I was in middle school that ended after a year or two. Lol.
