less is more

1/11/15


one of my 'resolutions' this year is to buy less. it's so easy to get caught up in the idea that you need the newest $50 cleanser that just came on the market, or the nicest $300 pair of designer jeans... two things that i'm ashamed to admit that i've fallen to. as a 21 year old student who works 7 hours a week... i honestly can't afford the lifestyle that i've been living for the last couple of years, and as much as society tries to convince me that this is the way i should or have to live my life, it's really not true. 

so this weekend i spent the last of my christmas money on my (well, hopefully) last 'frivolous' purchase for a while. i've been wanting the urban decay 'naked' eyeshadow pallet for a while now and i finally decided to just go for it with some of the christmas money i got over the holidays. so now it's time to stop shopping at sephora... or the mall in general and learn to be content with what i have (which i really great, i think it's easy to take for granted what you currently have when you're always looking out for the next best thing). 

so we'll see how this goes... hopefully it's not too hard ;).
