The Lipstick League – Week of 12.26.16
Question of the Week: If you had to make a beauty resolution for the new year, what would it be? Is there anything you’ve been meaning to do (or not do) in 2017?
EauMG’s Answer: Good question. I’ve been over here thinking about this today. In 2017, I want to use up more of what I already own. This isn’t just with cosmetics. I want to finish the books that I bought and never started to read. I’ve lost some weight and need to go through my clothes and only keep what fits. Back to cosmetics…I want to go on a “low-buy” and limit myself to 2 products a month. I’m going to give myself 3 months where I can buy 3 items (probably my birthday month and the two months that end a semester). My goal with this is to use up what I have, appreciate the things that I already own and to save money (I’m paying for the rest of the non-scholarship part of grad school out of pocket to avoid student loans). This will also have me more conscious of my purchases, hopefully having me buying more of what I need or really, really want. My resolution for 2017 is to buy less and invest more into my experiences such as education, travel and going to shows/museums/etc.
Also, Happy 2017! I hope this year will be good to you. Thank you so much for putting up with me in 2016. Thank you for reading, commenting and sharing! Cheers to 2017!
