I know I am not the only one who has that basket somewhere in your house full of samples. 3 free with every Sephora order. Free samples with purchase. Free gift bags FULL of samples with purchase. Sample boxes. Subscription boxes that fill empty space with samples.
I try pretty hard to use up my sample stash- I keep the sample bucket on my vanity and try to set out 2-5 each week to use. But good god do those little bastards stack up!
I’m trying a new strategy of splitting up my sample bucket into smaller piles/stacks/containers- one for hair, one for lotion, one for perfumes, etc. So far it’s working really well and you will see that in action when you see my next empties video!
Do you have a mad samples stash? How do you get through them, or do they just stack up?
If this level of samples continues, I’m going to give everyone a bouquet of them for Christmas this year…
Only 2 more videos till the end of this series! So far I haven’t had any review requests on the products I’m letting go of, so at the end of this if no one wants to see any I’m going to send it all of to my sister, my mom, my bff, or the dump. Let me know for real if you want any reviews on the old stuff!
Makeup Graveyard Day 10 Haircare
How do these things even stack up like this?! I think it’s because I don’t usually spend any time staring into the depths of under my bathroom sink… it’s scary down there! Even tho the cabinet stays clean and organized, I’ve had a phobia of under sinks since I was a kid. I think it’s because we used to have a really bad spider problem, and spiders scare the shit out of me… No joke.
How do you organize your haircare? Do you keep in under your sink or do you have an “above ground” storage system? Let me know if you’ve found a better way than under your sinks!!
Zoe goes to a school with a uniform, so she doesn’t often get to express her style- hence the ‘secret style’ she has! She has a LOOKBOOK account and you should go check out her profile! She’s adorable and I want all of her scarves! http://lookbook.nu/user/3893982-Zoe

Good lord I need to start reading ingredients before I buy things… Some of these were gifts and some of these were samples, but most of these were impulse buys and man of man I have to stop!
In case you were wondering about the Cetaphil comment…
Why Cetaphil Is The Devil: http://beautybets.com/2012/01/31/why-cetaphil-is-the-devil/
The Body Shop body butters are actually really good ingredients! They have one or two alcohols, but that’s about all I can complain about. On the other hand, looking at the ingredients of the Bath & Body lotions? Not so good… Don’t think I will be repurchasing anything from their Signature line anymore…
Let me know if there are any products you want me to review before I toss them!
Hello loves! Today we’re talking old brushes! I was surprised at how many I was able to let go of, but after clearing out the ones I never used, I was able to go to 2 canisters and they now fit IN a drawer… no more dog hair! Lol. Seriously, how much can one dog shed?
The urge to go back and get EVERYTHING is intense. I love decorating for summer, and we finally have a back yard/patio and I want to make it super cheery! But, I’d also like to invest in some pieces of decor/cups/etc that will last a long time and are made of materials that are labeled BPA/BPS free. I do really want a couple of those coconuts cups tho… too cute, and would keep the bugs out of your drink!
I did go back and get 5 more food tents (for $1? Hell yes I’m stocking up!) and some candy, some cumin, some candy, and 5 packs of stickers that are just the cutest things in the world! Also 1 roll of washi. I wanted to get more of those microfiber mats because they are just the cutest ones I’ve ever seen, but they were all out of the patterned ones and just had solids left.
I found the White Rain Botique Collection at my Dollar Tree! Has anyone tried them? Are any of them worth it? Comment below!
They had makeup remover, foot lotion, face scrub…
A cocoa butter lotion…
I think I forgot one.. lol, there are 5 in total.I grabbed the ‘It’s 5 O’clock somewhere’ sign and it is SO cute out on the patio! Perfect for summer BBQs!
These are the coconut cups I mentioned- SO cute! And they would keep the bugs out… I wouldn’t be surprised if I broke down and bought them next time I am at the Dollar Tree.
And lastly, these magarita glasses had flowers attached to them! How cute is that?
Hi lovelies! I forgot to post the blog for this weeks video! So sorry! It has been SUPER hectic with school this week. My teacher skipped 3 chapters “that we should already know” so I’ve had to do those at home in the evenings.
Makeup Graveyard Day 6 – Eyeliner & Mascara
I can tell you right now that there are are a ton more products that I’ve been re-assessing that I didn’t get rid of that day, that I will be letting go of. I am going to do one final wrap up video at the very end of the series with all the things I also decided to let go of.
Wet N Wild Brow Pencil in Taupe
A bunch of Mariposa Eyeliners that I got off Groupon or Living Social
