So, it’s been 19 days since I last viewed a beauty blog or purchased any cosmetic products…gah! 19 days sounds like I’m half-way through right? 40 days of Lent and all that – but when you count Sundays (as I am) it’s actually 46 days, soooo I’ve still got a ways to go :( I think officially it’s over on Easter Sunday, but I’m traveling to Maine that Good Friday and you know what? I’m gonna go hog-wild as soon as I get there so screw that. I figure I’ll have earned it even being restrictive on Sundays so that how I’m going to justify it. I CAN’T FRIGGIN’ WAIT.
I find the no-buy part of the challenge actually not too bad. Although, that could be because a) I got my Sephora package last week, b) I have received several swaps that I’d started before Lent, c) I received my RBL Insouciant in the mail on Thursday (!Review coming shortly!), and d) I am just avoiding all places which sell cosmetics lol. So yea, I guess it’s not been so rough yet there. HOWEVER, the blog business is really starting to get to me. I feel out of the loop, with no idea what’s new and exciting, and I miss just reading my regular blogs to catch up on their comings and goings in general. All of the ladies are smart, entertaining women and I miss checking in!! So this part is really tough. Also, I don’t know what to do with myself a lot of the time. I often just stare at my computer screen wondering what to do next. It’s like a Phantom Limb or something!! I did cave and buy a magazine last week…I didn’t rule those out so it’s not cheating and I refuse to feel guilty about it! I needed some kind of fix, bad.
I hope everyone is doing great and thoroughly enjoying their cosmetic-filled lives – enjoy it twice for me :P
