I'm a lady who loves her beauty products! No makeup makeup is my game & pretty packaging gets me every time, though I'm willing to forgive that with skincare (but only if the product is effective!). 

I'm a Stewardess who prefers quiet spaces and places, but I could talk all beauty all the time! Please enjoy your visit!

Update On The Big Purge

Update On The Big Purge

If you missed the details of the Big Purge, you can catch up HERE!! I had gathered quite a bit in that purge pile, but I definitely wasn't finished. I sorted through everything, even makeup bags, at least twice...but most categories I sorted through several times. 

At the end of it all, I feel pretty darn amazing...lighter, less burdened, and my choices are easier and nearly stress-free :-)  And here are the results...

Here we go!! One bag is full of skincare, hair & body stuff and samples. The other bag is makeup. At the bottom are makeup bags. There are a few things here not pictured, as I have already given them away or they are set aside for people, but this is the bulk of all the stuff I chose to let go :-)

And now I'm down this this ONE drawer, plus 2 big palettes (the Shu Uemura Neutral palette and some Burberry and RBR depots that are in a Z palette) that are too wide to fit sideways. Granted, this one drawer is a little more closely packed than either of the 2 drawers were before...but I still think that's pretty darn good!! You can see how it's organized below...

I'm really excited :-)  Ideally I'd like to keep my stash around the same size (or smaller?!!!), so I'm hoping to stay ruthless and purge on a very regular basis.
