EauMG’s March 2017 Empties

March 2017 Empties

Overview of what I bought in March: I received my The Ordinary order and so far I love what I’ve tried This is a really effective, cheap brand. I also like their minimalist packaging.

My skin had been looking dull from crummy weather and I realized I don’t have an AHA cream. Based on a friend’s recommendation, I bought derma E Overnight Peel. This stuff is wonderful for me. For an AHA, it’s very gentle and effective. It’s a good “maintenance” product… Continue reading | 14 Comments

EauMG’s February 2017 Favorites

West Village flowers

February is that month that flies by but I never complain about it. I want the dead of winter to fly by. I don’t want it to last longer.

It was a dull month. There were mid-terms and projects due. The weather was spotty. One day it’d be so springlike and perfect and the next it would be snowing. It was confusing.

January 2017 Empties

I announced in the end of 2016 that I was putting myself on a “low-buy” in 2017. I have accumulated a lot of stuff that I should be using. The deal is that I actually like the things that I have but I get so distracted by shiny, new things. My goal in 2017 is to buy less and enjoy more. This means that I’m only going to buy things that I really want (no more impulse buys) and that I’m “shopping” my stash.

So, how did… Continue reading | 13 Comments
