So what brought this all on? Well for a while I had been aware that I bought things at a much faster rate than I used them up. After moving home from university I realized with horror the exact amount of stuff I have managed to accumulate.
Then one fateful day whilst browsing through the internet at beauty blogs (like the addict that I am) I saw this post from the wonderful Estee here and it encouraged me to put myself on a spending ban. After reading several comments to her post I was directed to a 'project pan' video done a while ago by Amarixe here. So those are the catalyst that led me to embark upon this challenge. I realize that to most people not buying makeup etc wouldn't be a huge deal, but for me - sadly it is. I love beautiful things, be it makeup; glass decanters; vintage teacups or flowers. I can't seem to help myself. Yet I have probably enough beauty supplies to open my own version of boots, and certainly enough that I do not need to buy anything for a long while.
