December Empties

Instead of saying another month gone, I’ll say another year gone this time around. I believe the older you are, the faster time seems to go by. Time never went by this fast when I was in high school. It only ever went fast when I was actually enjoying my life. Now, days that drag and days that fly, all seem to go at the same pace. Sounds cliche and maybe it is but it is also the truth. I would never go back in time. I want to always be moving forward, never going back. For the new year empties, I am going to be trying a new style of empty posts. Stay tuned until Feb to see the new empties.

December was a light month for me and January is already looking better. I have been decluttering some makeup products here and there that are just not good anymore. As I go throughout the year, I plan on decluttering anything that I don’t like that I know are recent products to friends and anything else can and will be thrown away. It’s time for a new me that doesn’t keep products around just to have them.

With Love,

November Empties

Hey guys! Another month gone and Christmas and Dean’s birthday are right around the corner. I had quite a few empties this month, so I was very impressed. I have a ton of reviews to write now in my spare time. I’ve been building the furniture I bought on Black Friday this weekend and I’ll be able to show them soon. I just want to buy some super glue to glue back some broken pieces on my nick knacks so they look good in the pictures that I’ll be taking. I’ll be having two VS hauls coming up soon. So, stay tuned!

I finished off quite a few minis, but also some full sizes as well. I’m very proud of what I have been able to accomplish. I am looking forward to seeing what I can finish off before it is time for my January inventory to start off the new year with. I will be busy inventorying my whole collection and making plans for my 2018 year project pan where I want to use up 250 beauty related items next year. There will  be plenty of fun posts in the new year. I’m happy that I’m only doing one project next year. Simplified.

With Love,

Empties: July

I have quite a few products that I used up in July. July turned out to be a good month for me and it is mostly due to my project pan. It really motivated me to use and enjoy what I have in my collection. I’m looking forward to reviewing some of these products in my post, so stay tuned for some reviews. I’m really a review blog for the most part. I love writing reviews on products that I have used up and I have a ton of posts in back stock. I just use up so many products that the reviews get backlogged. I try to mix it up, so it’s at least a variety. That means that some of these items won’t be reviewed for months though. Now that I have explained that. Let’s get counting.

39. Jouer Essential Lip Enhancer


40. ModelCo Lip Lacquer


I impressed myself this month with 40 empties. Granted only 23 were beauty, skin care, and hair care products. Still, 23 beauty related empty products is amazing in one month. I think August will bring around 20 items total. I really emptied quite a few products. Most of what I am using now are mostly full. I’m not thinking that I will have a whole lot, which is good. I have so many reviews to write about now. About 20 I think. I know it’s August 6th right now, but I have an empty bucket.

For Dunkin’ Donuts Colombian


I bought this, because the brand was on sale and I enjoy Colombian coffee. I wouldn’t buy this one again though. It really didn’t taste like Colombian coffee. It was really too mild a flavor to be called Colombian, which has a full, bold, dark flavor. The Dunkin’ Donuts brand is really hit or miss on all of its varieties. I love some, hate others, and am unimpressed with the rest. This isn’t the worst coffee. I don’t hate it. I’m just not impressed with it. It doesn’t taste like I think it should based on the other brands of Colombian that I’ve tried.

Caramel Coffee Cake

For Dunkin’ Donuts Bakery Series in Caramel Coffee Cake


This coffee flavor is like heaven on earth. It’s delicious and if I see another limited edition bakery flavor, I will snatch it up. This one is seriously amazing. The coffee has a sweetness to it of cake, but the most notable flavor is the buttery caramel. I am a mocha girl, but this may have me voting for team Caramel. I even bought a caramel coffee creamer, because this coffee was so delicious. If you love coffee and prefer it flavored, than you have got to try this. It will not disappoint. I’m not a huge fan of DDs, but this one has redeemed them a bit in my eyes.

For Dunkin’ Donuts Dark Coffee


There is such a thing as too dark and I find that this coffee was just that. It left a burnt taste in my mouth that I didn’t care for, but it definitely had full bodied flavor. I am an avid coffee enthusiast. I drink two to three cups a day and am always trying out different brands and flavors. For Christmas, I am thinking about upgrading to a better single serve coffee machine. I don’t like more than one cup at a time and I don’t live with a coffee addict, more like a tea totter. I don’t want a machine that can make a pot. I might just invest in a Keurg, but I don’t usually by single serve pods.. I’m in a quandary. What do you recommend?

August Empties

My bag is overflowing from all of the empties I have in there. I am hoping that there is at least twenty products in there. I was really dedicated last month in using up products that just had a little bit left in them. I still have a few almost empty products that I’m sure will be empties in September. I’m so happy for myself! I cannot wait to see how many products I actually used up. I will be coming back Sunday and Monday with new posts, since it is a long weekend! This might be a long one!

Wow! Almost 30 products that I have used up. This is so amazing! I cannot wait to see what I use up in September. I don’t have any empties so far, but I’m sure that I will start using things up left and right. I have nothing to repurchase yet. I haven’t used up the last of anything important in my skin care routine, plus I have plenty of back ups! I will be buying a few school/college supplies next week when I get my books for my class AIT 131 Essentials of Information Technology. I love shopping for college/class supplies. Maybe, I’ll get some supplies for my desk as well. Anyways, I’ll be hitting the dollar tree and Walmart for supplies next week I’m supposed to get my books on Thursday!
