Putting a HOLD!


Ookay, so one of my readers is my dear friend, Kerry. She's a good friend of mine that I used to work with until she moved to Hawaii (which by the way, I'm jealous!). Haha! Anyways, she's the one that told me that it was okay to spend money on skincare cause that's very important. Yes, Kerry, if you're reading, that stuck to me! Sooo, after chatting with her yesterday, she proposed a challenge! What's the challenge?

NO SPENDING MONEY ON PRODUCTS FOR ONE WHOLE MONTH! (effective 03.07.09)
I better get all the crap I need before then! LOL!

I can do it! I know I can! My other problem is that I told my friend Kim (MAC MUA) that I would attend her next event! Eeks, which is March 21st. Sooo, I need to make for it. The minimum spend at the event is $50, so I can stick to the minimum. Then as a consequence, I should extend the challenge for a week longer. I have to review this proposal with Kerry! LOL!
As the economy is spiraling down, it's important to save money. Although I've been saving, I could always save more. You never know what's going to happen.

Instead of buying products, I'll have to channel my hobby to something else. Perhaps, reading? I still have to finish "My Sister's Keeper" and I even joined the Twilight bandwagon and bought the hardback. I found it for only $11 bucks! I haven't cracked it open yet, but we'll see what all the hype is about.

This challenge is going to be tough! I know it is! What if I start twitching? LOL!

Dear Kerry, I accept your challenge dear. With the exemption of March 21st, I will not buy any products until April 14th! (I extended it!).

So what's the prize if I accomplish the challenge? I have no idea yet, me and Kerry haven't discussed this! LOL!

Anyone ready to do this with me? I have one taker so far, Janelle! Yay! We can do it!

Good luck. I think what always tempts me to buy stuff is seeing it on people's blogs and how it looks on them or seeing it on some of the makeup forums.

As for finding a new hobby, there's always running!!

Well, I haven't bought any products for the last two weeks and I think I can make it until I get back. I'm up for it. No online shopping for me! =( But when I go to the MAC in France I need to get more brush cleaner and perfume. Does that count? Hahaha! Now I'm nervous. I'll let you know how it goes. Oh yeah, after 1800 we get internet for an hour! yayee! haha! but I tried to load the the mac website and it took about 30 min. Wack. lol
