It is tough to resist when everyone around you is chattering about a new makeup collection, but you’re doing great!

I did need a balm with a bit of color (so I thought) but mainly I loved the packaging. Logically, I could have saved my money. I’m trying to start a new strategy to reduce my impulse spending especially when it comes to eating out and trying out new food place since I am in college and money is tight. I feel bad that im not managing it right but feeling bad won’t do anything unless I make changes! My current goal is to spend no more than $30 a week on extra things besides gas or meter money. Small but I would help me make better choices. Good luck everyone and Afrobella!

You are exhibiting some extremely impressive willpower. Every time I try to buckle down with my finances, beauty products are ALWAYS my one weakness. Hang in there Bella!

In your honor and for my wallet, I’m going to do it for the month of March. I was in the MAC store for concealer. I looked at the hello kitty collection and thought it was soooo cute. When I thought more about it, all I could see is how the color would rub off the containers in a few months and they wouldn’t be worth all hype. I don’t know, maybe it was my way of stopping myself from buying them. I bought what I went for and left (except for a pair of killer eye lashes). Anyway, I know your struggle, and I too am trying to cure myself from retail therapy. We’re in this together.

LIKE REALLY. But at the end of the day, you must sacrifice for your dreams. I used to indulge in small little guilty pleasures. It was fun…until I realized that I wasn’t in control of my finances.

You only have a few days left. You’ve been making excellent strides. Your blog is thriving and you are planning for the future. If you were out buying stuff, all of your hard work would be put on hold until AFTER you spent your afternoon at the MAC counter.

Stay strong, Bella!

I must say bravo for doing a no-buy month. It’s not for me, but everybody could use a month where you only do the necessary. I have to say, I did buy some Hello Kitty things. I got “Nice to be Nice” lipglass, which I got strictly because it’s orange(doesn’t look orange on though). I also got “Fresh Brew” lipstick. It’s a pretty good neutral.
