EauMG’s July 2018 Empties

July 2018 Empties

July was a very busy month for us. We moved (and most of my perfumes are still in boxes) and then immediately went to visit in-laws in Ohio for a week. It’s August and I still don’t have furniture. Fun!

Because I’ve recently been confronted with everything that I own, I have tried to take it easy on the purchases. My goal is to get through the stuff that I already own (and like) before buying more. That’s always easier said than done. An outlet mall outside… Continue reading | 8 Comments

EauMG’s June 2018 Empties

June 2018 Empties

I am trying so hard to buy less. And I’m also failing at it. In June, I ended up making an e.l.f. order because I wanted to try their new foundation and SPF. But, with them it’s so cheap that the next thing you know, you’ve ordered 6 things you didn’t need. Anyway, I love everything that I bought. I think elf is doing the best with the “no makeup makeup” look than anyone else. I absolutely love the serum foundation because it basically looks like nothing (super sheer) and… Continue reading | 8 Comments

EauPEN Thread – Scents & Seasons

Marilyn Monroe

Do you rotate your perfumes for the season? Do you have perfumes that you wear only in certain seasons?

My answer to #1: Absolutely. I currently live in a place with four very distinct seasons.  I have found that I tend to prefer different genres of perfumes for each season. Key word – “tend”.

EauMG’s May 2018 Empties

May 2018 Empties

It was my birthday month and people are nice. I received some lovely bath/beauty gifts. I also graduated with Masters of Science! So, May 2018 was a very busy month for me and also a very happy one.

I bought a full-size perfume! I bought Diptyque L’Ombre Dans L’Eau. I also bought a leave-in conditioner from Suave, which actually works and I can’t get over how cheap it is, and a L’Oreal conditioner.

A new store opened… Continue reading | 10 Comments

EauMG’s April 2018 Empties

APril 2018 empties

I was not very good in April. I bought things I shouldn’t have. I ended up buying a Lancôme set from Nordstrom because it was a good deal. I like their mascaras and eye makeup remover. MAC had a sale on some limited edition collections. This sale contained 2 things that I have wanted but thought I missed out on. It was nice to see it back and half price! I also made an Ulta order mainly to get skincare for my husband since apparently he is incapable… Continue reading | 12 Comments
