NaBloPoMo 11.25.13: Shopping…My Weakness

4 years ago


Hey, dolls. This is the LAST week of National Blog Post Month and I am RELIEVED! It was not easy blogging every single day but it was great to have a goal. I only missed one day and I’m really proud of myself actually. I intend to finish this week off strong. I’ll even blog on Thanksgiving. J Although, I’m sure I’ll schedule it so I don’t have to actually blog on Thanksgiving. Here’s today’s BlogHer prompt. I thought it was a good one so I went with it…

Tell us about the last thing a person or advertisement convinced you to buy.

I’m ashamed to say makeup is my weakness. I can’t remember who the last person was or what exactly I saw but every time I watch YouTube I want to hit all of the drugstore makeup lines for their newest products. Fortunately (and unfortunately) for me because I’m a blogger companies often gift me nice items like the goodies I got from Benefit at my #LashBash Party.

I’ve been trying to stick to my [personal] No Buy but with so many hot limited edition gifts sets during the holidays it’s hard to stay focused. It’s also especially challenging this week because of all of the Black Friday sales and specials. Yesterday I listened to some of Myleik’s podcasts. The one on saving money reminded me that I REALLY need to stick to my goals and stop impulse shopping even if it is only a dollar here and there. Those dollars add up! So for the month of December I won’t buy any makeup for myself. *pinky swear*

What was the last impulse purchase you made? What is your weakness? How do you control your spending during the holidays? Please share any tips you have below!
