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!”
Greetings Beauts! Here we are again with another edition of PRODUCT EMPTIES! These are all products I used up in November and December.
My obvious patterns continue: I use up body/skin care products the most, simply because I use them day in and day out (I fly through lotion!), and least frequently, hair and makeup products- unless it’s an anchor product in my stash that I use daily/frequently. I’ll be damned the day I actually finish an eyeshadow or blush! I couldn’t tell you the last time I ever used one up of those lol. So moving on: Continue reading “November+December 2016 Empties”
Hey guys!! I’m getting to this post a little late-it’s been a crazy past three weeks! Work started back up with a bang: two weeks of professional development, getting a classroom together, meeting my new students and flying out to a wedding in Arkansas (which was great, btw!) has meant less time to chill and type. Though it’s been quite the whirlwind, something tells me it’s going to be a good school year!
If I thought having four empties in July was a lot (for me at least), imagine my surprise when I was able to finish up nine products this past month (OK- six. I found three I used up a little while ago but decided to include them here). And I was surprised to see just how many hair products got used up around the same time! Isn’t it weird when that happens?! Anyway, here they all are:
Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Touch-Up Cream – I have been using this stuff for years! According to the package it’s for sealing hair and “to eliminate frizz and flyaways.” I use a little bit in my palms and smooth it through my hair before pulling it up or after styling. I really can’t not have it. It’s a staple. Continue reading “August Product Empties!”
