Did you make a recent purchase for yourself that wasn’t a necessity but more of a splurge? Please share.

I went to the salon and got a perm. I hadn't been to the salon in over a year. I wanted to look nice for the holidays.

Would you believe that it used to take 2 perms to do my already curly hair? Needed to have spiral curls. Or are we talking straightening perm?

You must have thick hair. I have hair on the normal to fine side. I get flat on top and Nellie curls in the back. Once a year I get a perm to even out the curls and to keep my hair from wrapping around my neck.

I have a lot of hair. It’s coarse and fine in some areas. It’s really weird.

If you have naturally curly hair it can't be that weird. I bet it's lovely.

I got a spiral once. I felt like I was too poofy.

Not really. I bought jeans that weren't a part of my budget, but I bought them because I had developed holes in the rest of my plain black ones.
I flew to Prague, but I'm here for job interviews, and flew on separate tickets (one paid for in cash, one paid for in miles) so it only cost about $350.
So I'd say no, I've been fairly responsible with my money recently.

I love comic books and have been spending a lot on them recently. More than normal... I should probably stop

Found two Blenko water pitchers. $4.99 each.

I’ve done quite a bit of that over the past couple of weeks. It’s all been on makeup and skin care. I’ve been told that I have an elaborate skin care regimen. I could probably get away with just one cleanser and moisturizer, but I truly enjoy the process of using all of the different products. As for makeup, it’s just fun for me. Everything was on sale, too.

Case and PSU, still waiting for the motherboard/CPU, all so I can use up an otherwise wasted 4GB memory stick. The plan is to set up an Ubuntu based Plex server to feed the new TV we're getting each other for our anniversary next month, along with the four others. With as many PCs as we already have, we don’t really *need* another...but I do just gotta have it.

This time it was It, a brand ulta carries. Literally went in on a whim w my mom and these makeup artists with It were doing ppls makeup for free, so I had them show me some techniques and suggest products, they had deals on their brand tho it was still a splurge lol

For eyeshadow tho i do still love the naked pallettes. The eyeliner pen I got from It is the best tho, first one to not flake all day!

I love it! I just bought their foundation with their new brush. I’ve been using it for a year and it’s really the only thing that looks good.

11/19/17 2:53 pm

Ooh that is awesome!! I got a brush set from them, and foundation! It has 50 spf, the lady said i look like i dont go outside 😂 but it looks way better than anything else ive used, plus it hells to have a makeup artist match the shade for me, that part is so hard!

MrsCrayonWax
11/19/17 4:37 pm

Yes! One of the ulta salespeople tried to switch me to urban decay’s naked and she had me in a shade that made me look like a corpse. They let me exchange it for my IT in Light. I also got their universal brown pencil.

11/20/17 12:05 pm

Ugh thats so annoying! Im glad they let you switch! What brand do you usually use? Its so important to know what stuff flatters, im so glad I got advice from someone knowledgeable! They were giving products away with certain IT purchases cuz of the event and I got that brow pencil as one of them, it looks really good i think!

My niece got me into Lorac which was supposed to be full coverage but all it did was cling to my chronically dry skin. I also use L’Oréal revitalift which I swear by and nutrogena hydro boost. Both moisturize intensely. That helps but I think IT works best because of the formulation.

aj1545 Cat Lady
11/21/17 1:14 pm

Oh thats interesting! I have the same issue with any foundation type stuff, also have very dry skin. I cant stand not moisturizing everything after a shower. Soo many foundations cling wierd to the driest parts! The foundation I got from IT doesnt do that. Its literally the first lol, no wonder we both love it 😂
