★Monthly Panning Check In Update★Personal Project & Pantastic Collabs★

So, I think I bit off more than I can chew with this whole panning thing. . . A lot has changed regarding the way I am managing my collection. At the beginning of the year I posted about a #lowbuy/#nobuy, click HERE to view that particular post. I will be doing a #lowbuynobuyfail feature next week, but in the meantime let me explain a little a bit of what I have experienced this year regarding my collection. I have more eyeshadows, skin care, body care, foundations, etc., that is possible for ten people, let alone, one person to use. Some people consider my collection an addiction. . . and I am ok with that. It doesn't bother me. I know why I have so many products, and by extension "things" in my life. I have a lot of stuff. I am not a hoarder or anything like that, but I possess a great deal of "stuff". My house is generally very clean, organized, and I habitually clean every day, throughout the day. My "stuff" & "things" bring me comfort. They make me happy because they are mine and no one can take them from me. I bought them with my own money that I EARNED. . . however, I have learned through my #lowbuy #nobuy experience thus far that the fact that I have been unable to adhere to the guidelines that I set for myself has nothing to do with hoarding, obsession,

Many of us pick up some expensive products during the Sephora sale and that’s understandable because it’s the best time to pick up expensive products. But I want to actually use them up so that I get my money’s worth. Choose the most expensive products from 5 - 10 categories and pan them.
