So far it's worked wonders on my photography - I want to pick up my camera which is something I haven't in the last 3 or 4 years. What it hasn't worked wonders on is my wallet. It was thin to begin with and 2 months into this Rugby beauty-business, it's starving.
So, I've made a decision to save my wallet and prevent it from committing suicide:
no buys over 50SEK irl ($6.35) and online, I will only go hunting on Tradera/Ebay where 100SEK ($12.75) is the limit.
I know this sounds awful as well as ridiculous to a proper beautyjunkie, but I don't like the "Oh, nice, I want it feeling" that comes over me every other minute as I read all of your blogs. It's like the list of must-haves just gets bigger and bigger when deep down, most of the things listed aren't things I really want.
I am not a shopper and not a hoarder, I'm a girl that likes to pose my nailpolish and take clickiticlick-photos of it. I guess nailpolish is my Barbie?
In the end, I'd rather spend $19 on the new novel by Joyce Carol Oates than a brand new OPI in the local stores. Makeup and nailpolish is ridiculously overpriced in Sweden and I can't justify spending that much money on it.
The polish above is Dream on from Sinful Colors and it is much more fuchsia in real life than my photo suggests. $5 online at Tradera, a good buy. It's posing with a spread in an old Bust magazine (dec/jan 09)
