Shop your stash!

I hate January! There I said it....Sorry to depress you or be negative, but January is always a poo month! It's the come down from all the Christmas and New Years celebrations.. Spending lot's of money on gifts for your nearest and dearest....Also a few little (or big) treats for yourself.. Then you find yourself with a few extra lbs around your waist that You'd much prefer in your bank! Not sure if are like me and receive your December wage a week earlier leaving me to go about 6 weeks between paydays.. Boo, hoo! The weather is also always cold and miserable and Summer feels so so far away...
Which made me think and decide to write this rant post, as a Beauty obsessive, my make up collection is rather large and I have lot's and lot's of neglected products that were once loved by me until it's newest rival was released taking my attention meaning the old product was pushed aside into the back of a draw never to be seen again until now!

I've decided each sunday to go through my collection and fill my make up bag with completely different products to one mix it up a little, but to also use up products and to stop me being depressed that I have no spare 'make up' money in my purse!

My plan is to on each sunday pick out a different a
Primer
Foundation
Concealer
Powder
Bronzer
Blush
Eyeshadow/duo/quad/palette
Mascara
Brow/pencil/powder/mascara
Lip product
Etc...
To use exclusively until the following saturday, by the end of the week if I fall back in love great, it will go back into my collection but if I decide I no longer like the product I will put in a box and either give to friends or family or simply throw away, meaning I am also spring cleaning my make up collection! (SHhhh it's just an excuse to Make more room for the new products I WILL buy in 2014).

If you wish to join in leave me a message or tweet me and let me know if you found any old favourites in your stash or managed to get rid of all your unwanted products!
