How much is too much?

So my bachelorette days are over…..and while I don’t consider myself a slob, I won’t say I kept my living space ‘spic and span’ over the past month!  I am on the fast track to clean at the moment.  So far, I have taken care of the major issues-garbage is picked up and thrown away, sink is shining!

In the midst of all of this ‘tidying up’, I started finding things….so I thought I would take some inventory of my fragrance and makeup.  What a wake up call….

I’ll start with the fragrance:

The body splashes-nice and light (good for after a workout) and yes I have lotions to match these!

Now the perfumes/toilettes…..if you are in the market for a gift for me, please note I prefer perfume 😉

The 'deals'-each of these cost less than $9.00-with lotion and shower gel!

'Bought on a whim'

The 'freebies'-won both of these!

the 'minis' -love the Hello Kitty!

harajuku lovers solid set-great for the purse and touch-ups!

my me some Bond no. 9 but so hard to find here!

one of the most unique fragrances ever...and yes, it has it's own stand. it's worth it!

This is not available in Canada-but I highly recommend it! I believe there are 2 other scents!

Phew, now onto the  makeup:

eye products...the black case behind it is actually 4 eye shadows and a blush!


paint pots, mascaras, glitter liners, gel liners, and shadows!


blushes, bronzers, and powders

concealers and primers!


lip stains

lip glosses

more glosses


And finally……

This is what is inside of the black case; empty spots are for lip gloss, lipstick, and mascara.

So taking this inventory has really put things into perspective for me.  Looks like I will be going on a ‘no-buy’ for a couple of months. Geez I have a lot of makeup!

What about you? Do you think you have too much? Is there such a thing?

    I think yours is a respectable collection! I am afraid o what you’d say about mine… lol
    I’m definitely on a no-buy-ban.
    I know I have too much. But I just. Can’t. Let. Go.

      I would most likely be in awe of your collection Anjali.

      p.s. how the hell are you? I haven’t seen you in a long time.

    I echo Anjali.. this is very respectable. :]

    You’ve got your bases covered without it being out of control. The fact that you want to scale back at this point, is good.. makeup self control is easier to cultivate before it turns to madness.

    I know I have too much, but I’ll justify more.. LOL #teamweareallmadhere

      You know I am SO glad that you said this-I showed this to ‘other half’….now he wants to see your collection and Anjali’s as well (to compare he says…..)
