Confession, pledge, beauty ban, and some rambling, plus introducing Blogember

Hi girls,

I have so much to tell you, that I honestly have no idea where to start. There is not gonna be any reviews here, nor any fancy pictures, well, okay, maybe a little one to illustrate my reasoning. However, since my crafts/blogging/working room is being finally ready, I had an opportunity – or a neccessity, whichever one you like, to go through my collection, and had to make a conclusion, aka confession: I have too much. I don’t know why – most likely due to the same health issues, and attempts to uplift mood I was buying way too much in recent weeks. Somewhere between my twelth mascara and fifteenth hair care product I have decided – time to a project X pan and beauty ban for 90 days. So, yeah, I won’t be buying anymore beauty stuff up till the first of February. However, you will be seeing couple of hauls in coming days, since, as I already told you, I have been buying quite a lot.

And for those who don’t know, project x is quite close to a beauty ban, where instead of buying new stuff, you try to use up as much as possible, or the amount agreed with yourself, stuff you already own. So seeing how I have so much stuff to be used, it fits perfectly. However, don’t you worry that I won’t be blogging anymore,  I have so many lovely products in a line to be reviewed, so I will blog indeed, and even more than usual, since I seem to be on a challenge runs this month, I have decided to add one more to my list, and try to blog everyday. That”s where the ‘blogember” title comes from. If you watch youtube beauty or other personal channels videos, then you are most likely familiar with the terms ‘vlogtober’, ”vlogmas”, where people pledge to film everyday, so instead of filming, I will be posting. I hope I will be able to stick to this. And that is the photo proof, og having enough.. That is not all though (not to mention the e.l.f. order coming in.. Shhh!). Please forgive the sofa surroundings – that has been my work place in couple last days, the fall is not treating me nicely..And let me know if you want to see the category collection close ups, suchs as ‘masks, scrubs, lipproducts, mascaras, etc..’ And that is excluding my nail polishes…

Now let’s get to the pledge. As of the first of February I do pledge to buy only cruelty free beauty products, and as much as I can try to switch to the natural, organic skincare, haircare products, and if I can find the way how to get my hands on, make up products – I think Denmark is rather poor when it comes to the natural, organic make-up selection for reasonable prices, or I have looked in wrong places.  But thanks for all those lovely people for the Internet, I think I will be able to find a solution.  However, you will be seeing reviews on not so natural, and not so cruelty free items up till the 1st of February, since I haven’t really thought about it that much before. And getting rid of them all would just be a waste, and toxicating environment. But from now on, I will point out which items are cruelty free and which aren’t. And here is a photo proof, that I really mean it, I did notice a lack of information, or lack of self-education, what comes to the ingredients in my used products, so I will be catching up on some knowledge gaps.

I am somewhere in the 30th page of no more dirty looks, and so far I love the writing style. Took it with me on my as much as I could natural bath yesterday, and managed to spend there double amount of time when I usually do. That turned a boring Friday evening to a blast. And I think i might have found a secret to naturally waved hair, but that needs to be tested couple more times to be proven truth. Have a fantastic Saturday and come back for more posts tomorrow!
