Today is the official start of an EPIC no buy. I'm scared! Confident, excited, but also scared. LOL. When Gummy challenged me a few weeks ago to a no buy starting March 1st for the rest of the year, at first I thought it would be impossible. But when I really thought about it, I decided that it would be the most EPIC of challenges and a great opportunity for me to save money and actually USE the collection that I've amassed over the years. After all, how much makeup does a girl really need?? And I can't let all the pretties just go to waste, right?? :)

So, here are the rules for this no buy:

  1. No makeup, nail polish, or fragrance!
  2. Skincare only if absolutely necessary, ie my skin reacts to something I currently have or changes condition entirely. I will try to use up as many of my skincare samples as possible too, before purchasing anything new.
  3. I can replenish staple items, only if I have no other alternatives. Off the top of my head, things like Diorshow Maximizer and Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water will probably be the only things that will really need replenishing. Ideally, I'd like to replace them during a sale event as well.
  4. I can ask for beauty products as gifts, and I am allowed to use gift cards or return credits towards beauty.

There you have it! My epic no buy for the rest of 2013... and don't worry, I'll still have plenty of blog content coming your way, cause I haven't posted about SO much of my collection. :)

I've definitely done a beauty no buy for a few weeks at a time, but this will definitely be a remarkable achievement. Wish me luck, and I'd love to hear any advice if you have it! :)
