Eleventh Month on a Beauty Ban

I keep on insisting with the beauty ban thing in the title. Who knows, maybe by early next year I will have a definite title for these posts, but I digress. I cannot believe I got so far and despite the less than amazing results I will keep on going with these. I have to! One more month and then the biggest of them all – the year summary.

Until then…

Not so bad, right? Well, I doubt it will ever be good. Definitely not as good as it was in March. However, I keep on trying. To my complete surprise, I did manage to spend significantly less than in previous months and still, I did get some advent calendars here as well. Let’s be honest, I could have gone without, but it is what it is now.

Another huge surprise was my Black Friday haul. You can read more about that here. I was expecting to spend more and yet I am happy that I refrained myself. What a shocker, right? I know, I know. It seems that I might even get some of that money back as I am not sure what is going on with one of my orders. Hope not though as I would not purchase the products in question at full price (*Purito ones).

I don’t have anything interesting to say. I guess all the reviews took it out of me. Don’t worry, there are not that many as sadly the English language had enough of me botching it. I keep on insisting as as someone on our version of X Factor said, when you get somewhere, you try your best to stay there even if they come to get and remove you. I am here to stay, I am here to try again and again and maybe one day it will work. Both this blog and these posts. One day, I still hope that I will use more products than I purchase. Who wants to make a bet? Oh, I should have not said that. It is to close to Christmas. Don’t worry. I don’t place bets as I love loosing a tad too much. Think I am kidding? Okay, a bit. But seriously, you always learn more from loosing than from winning so it has its merits. I

Okay, this is for today. I will be back tomorrow and the day after and so on and on until December 25th. Fingers crossed, Now seriously, I hope you enjoyed this post and stay tuned for the Christmas Advent Calendars unboxing as now things will become a bit more interesting. Interesting is too much, let’s just stick to different.

See you soon.

How did you do this month?
