Hey everyone! I’m excited to get back to blogging after having been away for a bit. Before July flies away, I wanted to share all of my beauty empties/declutter (it never stops does it) from April to June. I’ll try not to dwell too much on these since there are a bunch.
It probably goes without saying that at this point my primary focus is to do more using up of what I already have or declutter what I’m not really into anymore as a way to downsize and think about what I want to bring in. So let’s get to it! By month:
Hey guys! It’s been a while. Last time I posted was almost a month ago so I have a lot to catch up on, empties and otherwise. A few empties I skipped writing about in detail cause I really had nothing to say about them or had reviewed them multiple times previously and I’d feel like a broken record. Of course if there’s anything pictured that I didn’t mention and you’d like more detail, please let me know! But hopefully overall this gives you (and myself down the line) an idea of what and how much I used up each month and some thoughts. So before I let these pile up any further, here are my January-March empties! Continue reading “January-March 2018 Empties and Declutter”
Hi all! Welcome to my first empties post of 2018! I think it’s neat seeing what and how much I finish in a month. I always learn something through these-how long it takes for me to use up a product, patterns. I notice that I don’t repurchase maybe 80-90% of what I finish. And not always because they stink either. I just don’t consider them staples or haven’t fallen in complete love. Some things I try just to try, which hey-never know what might end up being a favorite!
My journey in minimizing my skincare has been well underway, and I finished off a ton of products last year and have made a conscious effort to keep going and see what I enjoy, and of course I want to continue do the same with my body care and makeup. Skincare is just so much easier cause I use so many of the same things everyday. So let’s get into November:
Hey everyone! So I’ve been terrible about keeping up with the monthly empties posts. I don’t know if it’s just that the months go too fast or there are just too many that build up. If you follow my blog, you can tell I do empties posts pretty religiously. I’m doing a lot of phasing out of older products (that are still usable of course) from my stash or just getting rid of products, period. This is a combined empties post for September and October so I can actually catch up. I might make empties a bi-monthly thing from now on since I fall behind way too often. So here they are:
Happy fall! As usual these months are just rolling by and I’m definitely late on these by a month. I’m always excited to finish products and get them out of the way, but sometimes they just aren’t that exciting to write about especially when most are super old items, discontinued, or just kinda blah where I neither loved or hated them. I do like to look back on what I’ve used to remember what I had and what I thought, but it’s just amazing how unexcited I’ve been about too many empties lately. Either way I’m always happy to phase out older or meh products from my stash since I want to enjoy using what I have, not roll my eyes at stuff and wish them away. Anyway. I’ve used up three makeup products in August (those always feel like more of an accomplishment than body wash or shampoo) but read on to see what else I used up!
I’m beyond late with my July empties but August has been that kind of month. You’d think having been off would mean more blogging, but for me but sometimes “off” means doing everything but blogging! It just hasn’t been on the top of my list. Work also started back up this past week, so getting back to meetings and changes in schedule meant the blog really took a back seat! So anyway, I’m finally ready to report the yays and nays of my July empties!
Hey everyone! Happy July! So I’m within a reasonable window to post last month’s empties, usually I’m 2-3 weeks behind. If that makes me feel like I’m kind of on top of things these days, I’ll take it. I’ve been a bit lax on blogging and just life lately and I really don’t have any real excuse. Just that I’ve been lazy and tired starting off this summer break! It’s weird how much more tired I get now that I’m off.
Hey everyone! Here we are in the middle of June with last month’s empties. It only took two weeks but better late than never I guess! Mainly skincare empties but I have a mascara and blush thrown in this time as well (though one wasn’t exactly an empty, just needed to let it go). Enjoy! Continue reading “May 2017 Empties!”
Hey everyone! Here are my empties from February-April. Since I used up one thing in February and lately felt like these monthly empties posts were coming up way too soon, I decided to space this one out and let all of my empties pile up. I’ve been soready to throw out my empties build-up in the corner of my room, so that was motivation to finally do this post and toss em! So…let’s get to it! Continue reading “February and April Empties!”
Hey Hey Beauts! Most of February has flown by and yes I’m putting up a January Empties post now- you didn’t think it would be up any sooner, right? LoL. Hope your February is going well!
I am a bit surprised at how many products I’ve been finishing up month by month, or why some months are full of so many and some so few but I guess that would make sense if you’re continually using stuff up at the same pace. Anything I can finish or get rid of always feels like an accomplishment, especially since I really want to downsize my products overall! I’ll always have a collection, but I welcome more space and less stuff I’m not in love with. So here are the empties! Continue reading “January 2017 Empties!”
