Last year, I decided not to write about my purchases. That is why there are no haul posts in this tiny space on the internet.
I came to that decision mainly to prevent me from buying just so I can have something to blog about.
I wanted to share organic, unadulterated makeup and skin care adventures as if I was just recounting my experiences on beauty products as an everyday non-blogger person. In addition to that, I badly want to reduce my stuff.
But in the past 2 months, I accumulated a lot of makeup. I was trying to step out of my comfort zone, trying out colors, textures, and product types that I haven’t used before.
I didn’t buy them all at once. I picked up one item here and there, spaced several days apart. It was hard to notice the mountain of makeup slowly forming inside the apartment. And because it was hard to notice, I must have a way to make myself aware of my purchases. I’ll be writing about it from now on.
I’m thinking of naming the post No-Buy Fail instead of Haul. While haul posts are usually written to share interesting finds and first impressions that might help some people with their choices, no-buy fail will be more of a confession-type post sharing my lapses in minimalist attempts.
Wish me luck.
EDIT 01.07.2014: To account for the net accumulation (or net reduction) of my stuff. It’s going to be Purge and Purchases.
