Got Greed? Buyer's Remorse

So I knew from the beginning it was a bad idea...buying makeup when really, truth be told, I had no available money. Of course, I did it anyway, then freaked when I realized that in one night, I'd managed to spend $50 when only $37 existed..."How?" you ask. Silly, remember nowadays, we can spend imaginary money even with no cash in our wallet.


Yeah, on the card. That wicked invention. So tempting to pretend that the money exists, until the consequences kick in. Now I've got to do returns...of lipsticks I **really** love. Le sigh. Hopefully I'll learn my lesson, and save up, and later enjoy guilt-free lipsticking...haha. Until then, I'll be maturing and re-learning patience, and the virtue of saving for a purchase, and delayed gratification.

Ok, I'll be an adult, however begrudgingly.

Who gets exactly what I'm saying? Chime in, I know I'm not the only one.


  1. Hi! It is hard to shop wisely or, walk away wisely. We can easily be swayed by the glamour of beauty, the thrill of a purchase and, the pursuit of instant gratification. My secret? Stay home, read beauty blogs. ;)

  2. Yeah, I know what you mean. Honestly, I'd been doing well on a no-buy for a few weeks, but it's the staying home and reading the beauty blogs that renewed my =) It's like an alchoholic reading a site talking about the newest flavors of a certain liquor, or the inventive processes involved in extracting the agave nectar...the little tidbits of interesting info that whet our appetite and get us wanting something cool and new. Staying home reading the blogs is actually *more* dangerous, but so FUN! =) Thanks for your input!
