Does anyone else feel like they have WAY too many foundations? There is no possible way I could have gone through all of these before they went bad, but I can’t stop! I just ordered the new shade of the elf foundation today with their free shipping… and I have 4 bottles I am still working through of other foundations!
New video is live!
I cleaned out so many products that I just don’t use or are expired that have been cluttering up my beauty space. I don’t really have a room, it’s just spread out everywhere. Seriously, I had to go through like 5 different spots this stuff was hiding and I am still sure I missed a stash somewhere!
Now that it is cleaned out I will finally condense it all and that is going to feel so good!
I try to clean out my beauty stash about once a year, and I finally got a chance to do it a few weeks ago. My vanity is so empty! (In the best way- room to try new things and I can finally see all the products I actually like!)
If you haven’t cleared out your collection in a while, I highly recommend it.
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…
Good morning and happy Saturday friends!
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!!

OH MY GOD WHY DO I OWN SO MUCH LOTION…
Does anyone else feel this way?
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!

Makeup Graveyard Day 8- Brushes!
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?
Oh the hives. I had to leave class Thursday because I could feel them popping up all over my body. I went home and took a Benedryl and a Claritin, and thought I could just sleep it off, but I couldn’t. I called my Doctor to tell her what was going on and she wanted me to go do more blood work (food allergy tests as well as things like checking my liver and my thyroids). I had to go get my blood drawn and it took forever, but the nurse was SO nice and was so gentle.
I have a Doctors appointment on Wednesday to talk about the test results and to have my first allergy immunotherapy shot. She is also calling in two other doctors from another location to come consult on my rash/hives/etc.
Wee. Any of you suffering from hives too? They suck.
