October 2017 Empties

Is it me, or is the holiday season slow approaching? I’m surprised that I’m not seeing more festive mall decor, especially in the Philippines where the Christmas enthusiasm is on another level. Then again, there is no shortage of Christmas songs in circulation. I’m only glad that I have yet to hear the medleys.

Anyway, all this talk of yuletide cheer makes me think of, you guessed it, holiday sets! And because I want to make room in my hoarder’s pile closet for new stuff, I set my mind to proactively finishing up the older items in my stash. These are my current empties:

March 2017 Empties

I need to look at my stash once a month to see how many hoarded body and skin care products are still up for use. When I do, it reminds me to go on a temporary ban to finish up what’s left.

October 2016 Empties

Random Personal Update: I pledged 20 books on Good Reads, and I’ve still got 8 books to go before the end of the year. Still going through a lot of YA thrillers, because that’s often the way to get me to finish a book within 10 days. (Meaning, I elect to lose sleep to go through a page-turner.)

Also, re-watching the entire Harry Potter series in time for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. It’s something of a personal tradition that started with every HP book release. Only then, I used to re-read the books. I don’t have the time to do that now, so the condensed 2-hour version should suffice. (BTW, have you guys seen the fanart of the HP-themed shadow palettes? Merlin’s beard, please let them become a reality!)

Buuut, going back to beauty, here are my latest empties. There’s quite a bit of them this time:

Clockwise from Top-Left: Nivea Extra White Firming Body Lotin, The Body Shop Shea Body Butter, Nivea Creme, Zenutrients Rich Cocoa Body Butter
