confronting my make-up problem
hello, my name is tess, and i’m (apparently) unable to walk past the cosmetics aisle of any store without purchasing any random item i find on sale.
the first step is to acknowledge the problem, right? right. now, let’s take a deep look at the problem, and shake our heads woefully. please note: this is literally years of make-up i’ve accumulated and just NEVER chucked (so: i didn’t buy all of this in a short amount of time, which would be a lot more worrisome) (yes i’m stalling). i think half the problem is that i am real good at finding sales, and the other half is that i hate to throw things out. following is a series of photographs that alarm me. call this the “before” series.
well, now we’ve seen my shame. i’m flinching. i went through and was harsh with myself – do i use this? is it old enough to be grody and in need of a farewell? my end result:
a major part of why i did this: i’m moving, and moving in with the manfriend. it seems to me that a small apartment would benefit from a smaller amount of stuff, and so this, i think, will fit nicely into a small set of drawers, and be tucked away in the bathroom.
anyhow. i’ll post other photos later of other room purges – i have a bag of shoes to get rid of, plus some dresses, and so much more to sort through as i prepare to pack up my things and move.
