It’s coming to the end of the year. I’m going to stop doing these collection posts on here and add them to my Youtube videos. Yes, I’ll be back. So without further ado let’s look at the numbers for this month.
I’ve been trying to view my collection differently recently. There was a post on Reddit in MakeupRehab (which I can’t find) which talked about viewing makeup, not as a collection but rather something to use. So I want to switch my language from collection to inventory. However, because we are so close to the end of the year I might not do it yet for the title of these posts but I will try to do it in the rest of the posts.
I’m working on the back end of things right now, but there has been some movement. So far I’ve managed to restrain myself from buying all the new eyeshadow pretties from Lime Crime but I know that won’t last long. How are you doing with resisting your favourite brand?
I’ve been away from my blog from a while you might have noticed. I finally managed to update my numbers. Now there are a few big changes mostly because I’ve done my destash to a ‘later’ box. So they’re not totally gone but not currently part of my collection.
So let’s see my collection totals!
I’ve been fighting Fomo this month, so let’s see how I did.
As part of my use whatever I want thing, I’ve pulled a few bit and pieces back into my collection because I missed them. So that means in virtually every single section you’re going to see a rise in the value. How can I do this? When I destash an item I actually put it in a ‘lost and found’ box. If I don’t want it 12 months later it can go. If I end up missing it, it gets kept. It’s a habit I learned after impulsively destashing a few items and still to this day missing them.

This month I’ve done a bunch of destashing and trying out of items. So there’s a lovely shift down in cost, while I did make some purchases.
Three purchases this month. One was a badly needed hair dye, two were heavily discounted items from a supplier that I leave reviews for. As a result, my value might have jumped but I did not spend as much as the total says I did. In total it was more £20 than the £128 price listed. I always list my items by replacement value rather than cost.
No purchases this month. It was in fact very easy as this month. I think because I’m using my best stuff, I am not falling prey to FOMO.
So I am going to start posting a little update to my collection every month rather than empties. This year I’m on a RONB (Replacement Only No Buy) and as part of that, I’m tracking my collection. I want to keep an eye on it as things can creep in, as they have done this month. So if you’re interested to see the movement of my items and why they’ve shifted how they have, stay tuned.
