If I Could Only Keep 10 Eye Palettes

Hey guys! How’s it going? I hope everyone is staying safe, healthy and entertained. Hard to believe it’s been about a month now since the ish hit the fan with everything going on in the world.

Today, I thought I’d do something a little fun and share with you what I’d pick if I could only keep 10 eye palettes out of my current collection. Now I know for some, 10 is a lot. Then there’s me… eye palette junkie/hoarder-extraordinaire. Eye palettes are my favorite type of makeup product and I’ve amassed quite a large collection since I started blogging almost 6 years ago. Back then I owned I think just one palette (the Urban Decay Mariposa) and a bunch of single shadows (mostly loose shadows & pigments from Bare Minerals). Since then, my collection has grown to over 50 palettes. Yikes! I decluttered several last year before I moved, but then of course added new ones to my collection. It’s a never-ending spiral.

But, what if I could only keep 10? Can I do it? Let’s find out!

May 2019 Favorites

Hey guys! How’s it going?

I can’t believe we’re at the end of May! That means I’m moving in about a month now! Crazy. I’ve been busy decluttering and packing things up. My apartment is a mess of boxes waiting to be moved to the new place, plus boxes and bags of things I’m donating (it’s all going to a thrift store that supports a local no-kill animal shelter). I’ll be so glad when this move is over with. My poor cats are so confused with the stacks of boxes and they can’t play in them. LOL!

Anyhow, I had some time, so I thought I’d share my May favorites with you guys today! Got some makeup as well as one non-beauty item.

So strap yourselves in and keep your arms and legs inside the ride vehicle at all times. And no flash photography please. You ready? Let’s go!

When You Have Too Many Empties: Everything Else

Hey guys! How’s it going?

I know…. MIA again last week. I have no excuse except laziness. But then my dumb internet went out because the lawn care guys at my complex accidentally cut a wire…. I’m actually at a Starbucks writing this post! FYI, their green tea lemonade is pretty dang tasty! Highly recommend.

ANYHOW… I’m finally finishing off my latest batch of empties today. If you missed parts 1 and 2 you can read them here and here. This is all the rest that was in my overflowing empties basket. Mostly makeup, but a few other items that didn’t fall into the skincare or haircare categories.

Lots to go through so grab an extra large beverage and a snack and let’s get going!
