Hello all and hugs and positive thoughts to all those that need them!

I didnt do brilliantly since joining last month, I thought I'd have loads of UUs but the dam things just keep on spluttering out more product! Have been naughty and just ordered the LE skincare offer - but I actually have a few bits I need to put on Ebay and the C&P from the order will be joining it so I'm holding off on how many ins it's cost me until I've Ebayed and sold the bits that I dont need and possibly a few other bits. Sounds a bit of a cop out but they will all be accounted for I promise!

I'm not sure if I'm a member of the GB group or not, what's it called or can someone pm me with info please as I'd love to swap some bits x

Think I need to pop in for this month. Have been tempted to buy a few things on offer in the last couple of weeks so think I need to be focused!

I have been really good at not buying things since I joined about a year ago, but it's taking forever to get through stuff! I've given lots away but kept the bits that I will be able to get through.

To anyone new to this, keep at it. You'll soon change your mindset and buying toiletries won't be such an addiction (as it had been with me).

Best of luck to everyone. All the special offers are so tempting at the moment!

Two used ups

body Shop almond oil nail pen WNBA lasted a very short time so super expensive even with all their discounts. Will need something else has now run out of cuticle oil/cream

Mini mango shower gel think it was called something like Queens. WBA was nice but have a few to work my way though there were 5 in a packet .

I have loads of new colours to try, must go and have a play I think.

Big hugs to all that need them and huge congratulations to Emma via VALM, hope the new bedroom furniture is all that you hoped for, and well done for that very way of stocking up on your HG Elemis. Those of us who have bought when perhaps we shouldn't, perhaps we should be thinking out some diversionary tactics for the next few months, like we used to be encouraged to do at Weight Watchers to stop the evening snacking.
Hi maddiemay. We bought a bird feeder earlier in the year and though we keep it fully stocked only ever seem to attract big fat pigeons to it. Even the solitary squirrel that used to come and feed at it seems to have been frightened off.

Thank you so much for the congratulations and am loving our new bedrooms. Wished we had done them sooner.

Sadly my all time favourite nail varnish which they no longer make is now used up and I have never managed to find another one in that shade of pink.
Hi Becky. You should post on here the colour that you used to love. You never know one of us may know of a dupe for it.

I have a UU today - Anotomicals Help The Paw hand cream - lasted literally another two weeks cut open as there was so much stuck in the tube. WBA - v nice and really cheap, bargain. Moving onto a L'Occitane Mango mini next.

I also just remembered that I got a shower creme in Morrisons on Saturday before my little TBS splurge so thats Morrisons Orchid White Shower Creme 400ml as an IN - meaning I've bought 1900ml of shower gel in December so far How funny, it was a very good price [/QUOTE]

thanks Emsjune, am always proud of her. x

I have 4 INS and 2 UUS to report. All of the INS were free and were gifted by Emma after clearing her bedroom:-

OPI nail lacquer
OPI Avoplex hand cream
No. 7 hand cream
No 7 Protect and Perfect serum

UUS: L'occitane Mango hand cream. I see that you are moving onto this one next. I really enjoyed using it and it soothed my hands really well as they are so dry at the moment. Am glad that Emma gave me more handcream as the only ones I now have are the L'occitane freebie ones that I've got earmarked for gfits.

Other UU: L'occitane Verbena shower gel. Love this and WBA although have a Bath and Body Works White Citrus shower gel to use before then.

What did you buy from TBS? I placed an order for Emma for her to make up some kits for her friends.

One of the bottles of body cream is dented but I can keep that one so not too fussed. They have now been sent to "santa" and put away for my birthday in February so I'm cheekily not going to count them as INs until I've been officially given them.

I also placed an order with JL yesterday for the Marc Jacobs Daisy shower gel and body lotion that my sister wanted. The price match on these twoproducsts is brilliant at the moment. Worth checking out if anyone wants any.

I agree with MrKM about the smell of this one (and all her "treatment" products TBH). It's the camphor in them I can't bear.

So the idea of stockpiling for a nuclear winter extends to all areas of my life. Toiletries in particular are an easy pick me up for me; they're fairly cheap, last a long time, but the thrill of purchasing has worn off recently.
I got over hoarding things when my father in law died and we had to clear his house. I never understood what my mother in law (who died before him) meant when she said they would not downsize as they used every room in the house! It turned out every room in the house was used for storage of something or other. MrM didn't want to part with anything and thinking about the amount of stuff in our loft makes me feel queasy. When we were emptying the wardrobes this week for the revamp he called me upstairs to ask if I wanted any of the books he had retrieved from it as if they were mine. I came upstairs to be faced with a pile of X file conspiracy type books that he was always reading in the 90's which have probably all been debunked by now!! Being abducted by aliens is clearly not on trend anymore. He was upset when I told him to chuck the lot. Anyway I digress - what I'm trying to say is don't hoard. The special offers will always come around again.

Welcome to all the newbies - and hugs to all. It seems a lot of us are in need right now.

Mum and i had a lovely trip to the US to visit family - it was great to see mum having such a good time after the year she has had.

I got my results from the genetics centre, and I'm a moderatly high risk. I am going to begin yearly visits to the family history clinic but so far that's all that is needed. V pleased with that!

Managed to get through my whole holiday buying 3 BE Buxom lip gloss (Liberty) so hard to find it near me, I now have enough to last through 2013 Also bought 1 eyeshadow - because it was reduced bu 80%, a moment of weakness! Went to Five Below and bought two Sally Hanson nail sticker thingies - leopard print and black glitter, $2 each. So not bad at all. Will glitter my nails whilst working christmas night!

I managed three trips to Sephora and bought - drum roll please----- NOTHING. Am I cured, or just ill??? Mum was quite concerned when I uttered the words 'I really don't need anything, and I will just see lovely stuff that I will have to buy - can we go please' I have to say, I had to take a moment pat myself on the back and have a little sit down.

I did however run riot in Whole Foods - its the size of a giant TESCO, OMG, I love that place. Bought a whole load of stuff home So glad I don't live close to one here, would never have any money.

My clarissonic is wonderfull - bought it during another moment of weakness in Oct. Will not look back. Using decleor cleansing wash at the mo and all is good.

Will be gifting some of my stash as part of xmas gifts - so that will reduce it a little. Also, work have asked for 'anything' this year for hamper gifts - including toiletries. So may well pass a few things on to the people collecting. Will be just my luck to win the blooming things back!


Althought I have not 'written off' December, I'm guessing that with work and xmas I will be a little busy, so my intention is to begin my new stash list this month. Then when I (no doubt) get smellies for xmas I can add it to the list. In Jan when I manage to post a full up-to-date list I can feel very proud of myself. (let's see if it happens) The intention is there at least.

I also plan to continue my 1 in the pot for every uu and 5 in the pot for each TSV I do not buy. In addition I would like to have a more structured list, so will start counting up my UU. Think this will give me more of a sense of achievement - I clearly need that!

Hope everyone has a lovely day - I will be in bed sleeping after my nightshift!
Lovely to see you back scrappie and your trip sounds wonderful. Congrats on not spending in Sephora though the thought of walking out of that store with zero purchases makes me feel queasy. x

just bought OH another christmas pressie as feeling a bit guilty at how much I spend on myself

just bought glamour jan issue for the Body shop card....mag was 1.50 and card worth at least 3 but could be 15 or 100

am guessing mine will be 3struggles to read the small print even with glasses on but think you have to spend it all at once so lucky girls with 100 take note!
This is what I mean about stashing things!! Mind you I'd understand finding a stash of lovely toiletries more than finding the drawer full of tape measures at FIL's house. I kid you not.

What's the glamour mag give away?

I almost forgot to declare some more INs that I bought today but in my defence they are travel sizes to take to York with us this weekend. Bought Aussie shampoo and conditioner (only have huge bottles of V05 in at the moment). Have packed a travel sized bottle of elemis Frangipani shower cream. We are driving there straight from work tomorrow night so I won't "speak" with you ladies till after the weekend. Have a good time everyone and wrap up warm!! MrM and Emma will be pleased I'm dragging them around museums to keep out of the cold. xx

Lightbulb Minor LBM.

Maddiemay, you're in all our thoughts. Wishing you strength and comfort. I worry about my bro and sis - they are older than me, Sis, 63 has retired, Bro is 61 (doesn't look it).

York is one of my favourite places Val - and my daughter's. Most of the times I've been there it's been work - related though, as two organisations I've worked for have used the city for regional meetings. It was cold and rainy up here today with ice forecast, and York is only 50 miles away. Hope you are OK underfoot on your visit and enjoy your stay.

I've been looking at my stash, not that there's much, and I had a bit of a Light Bulb Moment with regard to why I buy stuff I don't exactly need.

One strategy I use (apart from a big drop in income) that helps me avoid buying edible (fattening) treats is to imagine what it tastes like and picture myself eating it before I pick it up.
I remind myself that I have eaten it before, or something very similar, and it really isn't worth derailing my diet for. It works quite well for me.

But we can't do that with toiletries. My UU of today was a 75ml Avon Foot Works Berry & Vanilla foot cream. I love vanilla scents so "had" to buy it.

It's actually quite a sweet, pleasant smell but not quite as nice as I thought it would be, TBH. That's the key with so much I buy.

Words used for texture can entice too.. I bought a rose & peach body whip the other week; it was the word "whip" that lured me, a light cream to sink in well and not make me feel sticky as some heavy creams do. Well, that whip smells overwhelmingly to me of not rose or peach, but of bitter potassium citrate. The texture is lovely, the scent is not.

And even when you like a smell, the product can be wrong. I've twice bought chocolate scented toiletries because I assumed using a smell I liked would mean I liked the product.
But I found that using products that made me smell like Thornton's at 7 am wasn't as pleasant as I thought it would be.

So back to the UU. WIBA with the foot cream? Well, I already did on my last but one Avon order. It's not that bad, but it's not that cheap either unless it's on SO. Last time it was on a four items for a fiver offer (or was it three?) and too good to miss.

The Avon brochure is sat at my feet - I bought my DS a giant 750 ml shower gel for 1.99 and that arrived today but didn't buy myself anything.
Mantra... I don't need anything ... I don't need anything ...

I haven't looked at it yet though ...
Erma Bombeck, American writer: "If I had my life to live over again... I would have burned the pink candle, sculptured like a rose, that melted in storage." Don't keep things 'for best' - that day never comes. Use them and enjoy them now.

Thanks. We were away in York this time last year and it was very wet so have packed loads of warm clothing. Emma unfortunately has started with a cold so will have to pack lots of cold remedy items as well.

The best chocolate fragrance I've tried is Philosophy Double Hot Cocoa shower gel. Love this in Autumn/Winter as it warms me up.

Hope you got sorted scrappie. I see it's still on offer at the moment. I was a bit miffed a couple of weeks ago because it was price matched then at 15.00@ and sold out by the time I realised. Put in a request for an email when it was back in stock thinking that by then it would be back to regular price and was chuffed when it came back in stock at an even lower price. I reckon I've saved a third on the price of both items so very pleased. x

Oh, I hope the surgery goes well!

I finished the half marathon in Vegas. I honestly thought I was doing a 10KM thingie. But I've got the medal, tshirt, and race bib.

TA an Estee Lauder Sensous Pleasures gwp size eau de cologne. Smelt like hairspray on me.

UU a Maybelline Volume mascara. It was good better than the pink and green tube but I think it was discontinued.

I was good and left the hotel toilletries behind. The bathrooms in the Venetian are huge. I put the bathtub and foam bath to good use!

I wound up coming home with a Nars blusher, a box of four Clinique Black Honey liptubes and a few things I sent directly to the boys girlfriends. Oh, and a grapefruit roll on cologne. For the life of me I can't remember who makes it.

It's -22 out here and that's not factoring in the windchill. Keep warm and enjoy your stash.
