July Beauty HAULS

Good morning everyone! Only 2 more days till it’s Friday 😉

As the title indicates, I picked up a few new beauty items in July. I’m a bit on beauty-overload right now, which shouldn’t be a bad thing. But if I’m being completely honest, I bought way more than what is pictured below (if you believe “more” is possible), I just took back a lot of things out of guilt. Rightfully so! What’s the point in not buying any new clothes for a year if you’re just going to transfer that spending habit to something equally dangerous?!

I have so many options right now, I have a whole “giveaway” bag I’ve been collecting new, unused items in. I think I’m hitting the pause button on beauty purchases for a while, if this blog doesn’t change it’s title to “No New Beauty Items for a Year” altogether come September (kidding!…maybe).
