My tin of washi tapes and I will be at Shangri-la Plaza Mall this afternoon to do a planner layout demonstration for Hobonichi and @scribewritingessentials as part of @shangrilaplazaofficial 's celebration of all things Japanese this month! Come by and have some fun with us starting 3PM. @nic_the_ will be doing a demonstration for @tombowph and @dyosaimma will be doing one for Platinum fountain pens.

So about that #nobuyjuly.... I could not pass up new RT brushes, especially the Bold Metal Collection that I've been wanting but willing to spend $25 a brush, I got all 3 for $20 at Ross!!! And the other set was $13!!!

@toofaced Natural Love Palette. 💕
This was my last purchase before #nobuyjuly started and I do not regret a thing. It's beautifully pigmented and has a brilliant variety of natural colours. I find the palette easy to work with as it has been easy to blend out or build up. I also really enjoy the packaging as it is both aesthetically and texturally appealing. 💖

@petitvour July skin treats. Nearing the end of #nobuyjuly and I'm not counting subscriptions! 🤷🏻‍♀️ .
@oseamalibu Sea Minerals Mist - so happy this was included! I'm a huge fan of Osea's Sea Vitamin Boost Mist and have been wanting to try this version
@rllinden La Balma Rosa - Wearing this right now. It feels luxurious, slightly glossy and lightly scented 🌹
@zabanaessentials Sugar + Salt Body Scrub Coconut - Using this tonight, I'll report back 😊
@adorncosmetics Mineral Brow Dust Medium - Looking forward to trying this in my morning make-up routine tomorrow. I've never used a loose powder for brows. Also the medium color looks just right for me
@tayskincare Essential Oils Bar Soap Juniper Lake - Also trying this tonight. It smells so fresh and breezy! ☀️🛁

I guess I technically broke my #nobuyjuly by getting this XL Z-Palette, but I've been wanting to depot a lot of my blushes and bronzers for a long time. I just don't feel that I get as much use out of them when I have to open an individual container for every single time I want to use one. I am going to try to fit as many as possible in here. I may not depot the large ELF duo in the center, because the compact is really nice and sturdy. IDK yet. I also have a Clinique Cheek Pop I'm not depotting because the packaging is fine as it is, and a Tarte blush that's part of a palette that I won't separate. #depotting #zpalette #shopyourstash

A No Buy July update on the blog today... (link in profile) #nobuyjuly #styleblogger #thriftstyle #nordstromrack #nordstromrackfinds

Me trying to figure out how to get past #NoBuyJuly.

Roaming in @ultabeauty when I am on a #nobuyjuly


When you sell more in a day than you have all summer 😂🤗 But really tho... 😳 #nobuyjuly
4 orders and 11 items out to their new homes this morning! Watch my #instastory for all the deets 🎉 #poshmarkseller #resellerlife

After my successful #nobuyjuly I decided It was ok to buy a couple of things 😊😊
I saw @sachajuan shampoos while I was in Norway and decided to try their thickening shampoo and their leave in conditioner ✨✨
Have been seeing @farmacybeauty Green Clean everywhere recently, so when it got back in stock at Cult Beauty, I immediately ordered it, together with a sample kit by @alliesofskin ✨✨ I'm really looking forward to trying these two brands, probably will wait until September at least to try the overnight mask though 😁😁 ☀️☀️ ✨✨ Have you tried any of these? ✨✨

#nobuyjuly is over. I didn't succeed. 😳 #haulaugust apparently has begun for me. 😁

These are necessities for me. My feet are soo dry lately! My current creams don't hydrate enough, so I rely on #neutrogena to do the trick. And it is bliss!!!! 💗 I don't have to apply footcream every day, it seems that every two days works for me.
For my hands, also some #newbies to try: neutrogena and #larocheposay cicaplast.
And also a rebuy Cicaplast Baum. The one in my stash is almost empty. With a free Serozinc with it. 😃

Now that I'm 40, I decided it was time to grow up just a little bit more and try to reel things in when it came to $$$. So, since the beginning of June, I put myself on a weekly "allowance" for fun and frivolous things and entertainment.
This whole "budget" thing is relatively new to me - it's something I never really cared much about, to be honest. I would get paid, cover the bills, save some for retirement, and piss the rest away in the wind.
The bulk of my cash flow was being spent on things that I ultimately didn't NEED. I don't need to go out to eat as often as I do, I have enough hair care to last probably 4-6 months, nail polish to last a decade, and more make-up than most women would use in their whole lives.
After a month of abiding to my allowance, I declared a NO BUY JULY........and I did it!
I went the whole month of July without buying any hair care, nail polish, or make-up that was outside of my weekly spending allowance. And dinner/movie dates were kept to a minimum, too! The two beauty products I bought in July were within my weekly budget.

I avoided Shoppers Drug Mart altogether. Like, I didn't go there even once. This is a RECORD for me!
I would look at my emails from Sephora, and then delete them.
I didn't place a single order on Amazon.
I didn't buy any presents or special treats for anyone.
I emptied some bottles of product and had back-ups on hand in my surplus of excess shit. I also cleared out some overstock of Younique, donated some stuff to a local shelter, and I STILL have plenty leftover to last me for quite a while.
We started a major de-clutter at our house - some donated, some sold. More to come!
And I managed to save a few more shekels to add to my piggy bank, maybe I'll splurge a little in New Orleans...maybe I won't. But I have spending money saved and ready to use, and a budget for each day.
WHO AM I?!?! This whole thing was oddly satisfying. Is this how savers feel all the time? Organized, budget conscious people? Minimalists? (I am hardly a minimalist, I know)

Pm routine for (02/08/2017). I came home from a horrendously long day at uni to some brand new skincare. Naobay is a brand I discovered in a @bellaboxaust subscription around a year ago. I've been using their handcream pretty regularly since. So I though I would give their hydrating toner a go. This is the one item I broke #nobuyjuly over. I needed a hydrating toner, and so wasn't adding something to my collection that I already had. $15.75 for 200ml.
▫Double cleanse with JSS - Plié Treatment Cleanser
▫Naobay - Calming Toner. This is quite nice. It has a super short ingredient list, and absolutely no scent. First impression is a positive one.
▫JSS - Hydrate (5 drops pressed into skin and left for 10 minutes)
▫JSS - EtOILé with retinol (6 drops, warmed between palms and pressed into face and neck). I might add another layer of moisture before bed - some @stratia Liquid Gold probably.

Since #nobuyjuly was certainly a fail, I'm being faithful to #nobuyaugust 😐. And since I'm making the rules I'm also outlining conditions where I can break them, am I right???

1. Anything travel-sized for an upcoming holiday (but will make reasonable efforts to first decant into smaller containers)
2. Purchase of @morphebrushes and/or other interesting products at the upcoming @imatsofficial in #toronto
3. Anything I may run out of that is essential due to personal hygiene
4. Food, obvi
I've lasted 21 hours, I think I'm doing great so far 😜

Here's the main reason why I broke my #NoBuyJuly vows: Jordan Samuel's Étoile with Retinol... and another Hydrate. I believe it is quite clear that the #NoBuy failure wasn't really my fault, but a strange occurrence of syzygy. If it wasn't for @carolinehirons offering a discount code, @jordansamuelskin making the product and @shamrockjulie saying "if you are a fan of the JSS line you'll love the oil" I would have been fine. Please also note my attempt to do a @skinstaguy here, by actually managing to hold 2 products at once, even though I will never be able to match his record of holding the entire May Lindstrom product line in one hand 😜😜😜👋🏻😻😽.

Kein Makeup-Post, da ich mir im Juli einen #nobuyjuly selbst auferlegt habe. Für mich galt es aber tatsächlich nur für dekorative Kosmetik und Pflegeartikel. Wenn ich doch Duschgel oder einen Kajal gebraucht habe, habe ich die Sachen mit einem Gutschein gekauft, den ich noch hatte. Dafür habe ich ein paar wirklich schöne Klamotten und Schuhe gekauft. Meine Schuh bzw. Sneaker-Sucht ist fast noch schlimmer ausgeprägt als der Drang Makeup zu kaufen. Ich muss sagen, dass die ersten 2 Wochen auch echt schwer waren, aber danach war es wirklich überhaupt kein Problem mehr bei neuen Releases stark zu bleiben. Es lief sogar so gut, dass ich selbst jetzt im neuen Monat, nicht mal das starke Bedürfnis habe Makeup zu kaufen und mir mittlerweile denke: Junge, Anna, du bist echt ein krasser Typ. Man kann also sozusagen sagen, dass ich seit 31 Tagen trocken bin. Ich kann jedem empfehlen sowas mal zu tun, es fühlt sich wirklich gut an. Und wenn euch Schuh- und Outfit-Posts auch interessieren, lasst es mich gerne wissen. ✨

So I managed #nobuyjuly and I'm pretty pleased with myself. As a small treat I went to @tkmaxx today and stocked up on a few sheet masks and some Himalayan bath salts. Now I'm back on being focused and going for #nobuyaugust (today's treat doesn't count). #koreanskincare #kbeauty #sheetmask #bathsalts #minihaul #treat #skin #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity #instaskin #instabeauty #instablogger #impressedwithmyself #staystrong #nobuy #usingmystash #todaydoesntcountright

As I failed #nobuyjuly I am going to join @rachiesbeautyworld for #nobuyaugust ... 🙆🏻
