What I'm really, really tempted by are 2 sales - Lauress's sale, with everything at 35% off (only a few days left!), and Sephora's upcoming sale with all items at 20% off (happening on Oct 19 I believe). Both such good deals! And just in time because I tried Lauress's foundation this week and loved it, and I've been lemming for Benefit Coralista for what seems like the longest time. And not to mention the mmu companies coming out with all these great Halloween collections...
But ah, my beauty budget is terribly low right now, what with my daughter's very first birthday party coming up. At first I proposed that we three just celebrate by going out of town, to somewhere we've never been before, but I realized...it's not just we three, it's we and our family and our friends. See, my pregnancy was unplanned, and we were not prepared for it. But we got so, so much help along the way. And we are thankful, and will be celebrating with all the wonderful people who have helped us.
So I resolve to stick to my no-buy! My goal is until December. Good thing I got my packages today...I'll have things to play with. And when I watch the news...did you know that another typhoon hit our country and that the northern provinces were badly hit? More casualties, and more people now without homes and going hungry. I still feel like I'm going to cry everytime I watch the news.
It's about realizations and priorities, I guess. I'm keeping myself busy in the meantime- I was in the process of renewing my driver's license and I was already done with my drug test and all, when suddenly, they tell me that I have a record for a traffic violation that happened in 2007 and I have to get clearance for it all the way in MMDA Guadalupe, which is hours away from our home! So I commute all the way to there today only to find out that it was actually some other person's (a complete stranger) violation which somehow showed up on my record. Jeez. BUT I was told to still come back tomorrow and pay a fine (a small fine, but still). My husband said that was totally unreasonable, that they wasted my time, and I should've thrown a fit, but honestly, I was too weary to argue with the MMDA people. Oops, I'm getting off track and ranting now, but fellow Pinoys, you probably know what I'm talking about. Totally third world :)
So how 'bout you, how long did your longest no-buy last? Inspire me with your answers, please? :)
