scent-sational!

i have this ity bitty fetish with lotions/shampoo's/body wash which results in me having an over abundance of the aforementioned....

i currently have at least 8 shampoo's and conditioner's on the go, i have my Ojon (my fav), my John Frieda just for blonde's, my salon stuff (think it's Joico), and lastly my Alberto stuff that smells like flowers....

then there is also my body wash

luckily, I only have the one in my shower right now as I don't think i could squeeze anything else in....but it's almost gone :( ,which means i soon have to make a visit to Sephora or the dreaded local department store isle of hundreds apon hundreds of options. even if i went in knowing i only needed to purchase body wash i would totally come out with new shampoo and lotions too even though i currently have tons of these products (most of which are half full) it wouldn't matter! I'm like a kid in a candy store when it comes to this stuff, not sure why really either, but i always have to walk quickly thru these isles, chanting to myself that i will not cave, i will not cave!

so my new vow/goal to myself is to not purchase any new product until I've used every last bit of lotion that's half full, every last bit of body wash, every last bit of shampoo (that will be awhile). and by putting it here it just makes it legit/final, so there is no going back...

boo!

this is going to be hard

Fortunately for me - when i did this same tough love on myself earlier in the year - the lotions all smelled bad so I had to throw them out, then I got to BUY MORE.

Oh and effing LIPGLOSS. Why oh why must I have all these lipglosses?
Minimum 5 in my purse and lordy you should see the make up case, and make up drawer and ... I should stop.

I'm that way with shampoos. I always get bored with what I'm using and half of the old bottle ends up underneath the sink. I've got way too many down there now.

Oh, I am so addicted to lipgloss, too. There are no words....so many choices in colour, plumping or not, ultra shiny or sparkly, scented...I could go on. It would be impossible to count just how many I have. I am attempting to curb my sephora/shoppers drug mart addiction but it's very hard and not yet successful. Best of luck to you, heather. p.s. I blame mom lol!!

scottsdale girl - oh i already know all about bath and body works, been there, and LOVE it! sadly all my lotions are still fairly new...oh and don't even get me started on lip glosses...

mo - yup, i've got them stashed under the sink too, mostly conditioners though as i seem to go thru the shampoo faster? which is totally weird...should probably clean that out too...

sis - I so blame Mom too!! it's all her fault!! LOL, ok mom its not, but yet somehow it is...haha!

I have a better idea - combine all the half-lotions into one Super Lotion. Sort of like a suicide at the beverage counter . . . it might smell good, but it might not.

Wow, that's a lot of stuff to have on the go! I'm pretty stoked because the new place I'm moving to has a tub and we only have a shower stall here. So I'm so looking forward to having bubble baths again, and investing in some of my favourite scents!

Hey, it's LOST tonight! Can't wait!

Scottsdale Girl said...

Ben: trust a bitch when she says "That does NOT work". Clever as hell, but no. Bad.

LOST!!!!!!!!

ooh, now that's going to be hard...there are so many great things out there. Everytime I go to the store or read a magazine, there is some new body wash or somethin that you just HAVE to try.

good luck on that one Flea! if you can't do it, just get rid of the toilet paper and make room for more body wash...Sheryl Crow will love you.
