I know, I know, I know. I said that I was not going to be buying any more books for a while and yet, here we are. My justification is that in part of my new budget I have allowed myself book purchases at the start of every month. And what do you know, it’s the 1st of January! (happy new year, by the way) I am partaking in the 50 book challenge in 2011, so I will need plenty of new books to keep me going throughout the year. The 4 books I’ve ordered today all include some of my favourite themes – apocalypse, alien invasion and zombies. Awesome. Nothing too brain straining, but if I’m going to get through 50 books this year they can’t all be literary classics.
Not great, but not too bad a result for December. I managed to finish up a Pantene 3 Minute Miracle, my Glasshouse Fragrances Montego Bay Hand & Body Creme (one of my favourite scents for summer) and a bottle of Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel. Technically I could have included the Dermalogica cleanser in my Project 10 Pan, but I won’t because I was so close to finishing it already, and it feels silly to include it.
As one of my beauty resolutions for 2011 is to partake in Project 10 Pan at the beginning and end of the year (and I’ve also noticed that I have spent way too much money on cosmetics lately), I think it’s a great idea to start my Project 10 Pan asap. My Project 10 Pans are slightly different to most, as I opt to finish up a collective 10 products from various categories, rather than 10 makeup, 10 skin care etc. This works out better for me, and it usually takes 2 or 3 months for me to finish up the products, which is a decent amount of time (in my eyes at least) to not be spending money on cosmetics. I also find that after the 3 months or so I no longer have the urge to spend frivolously on products that I don’t necessarily want or need. But we’ll see how long that feeling lasts… I am aiming to spend less in 2011 on things I don’t need, and this seems like a good way to start to me. So here we go, Project 10 Pan starts now!
