Aboot

Howdy! Welcome to my blog! It’s primarily focused on keeping my beauty stash in check – I do product reviews, stash declutters, and spend accountability posts. I blog anonymously so you will only see swatches on my hands and arms on the blog. And you can call me Stashy! I may or may not be in the Witness Protection Program and / or am a covert operative…


I started this blog in 2015 to chronicle yearlong No-Buy, which I completed successfully. In 2016, I opted for a Low-Buy, with mixed results. ๐Ÿ˜ณ This year, I will be doing a No-Buy-Low-Buy Hybrid. ย Having this blog definitely help to curb my shopping urges in many ways: it keeps me preoccupied, gets me digging into my makeup stash for reviews / comparison (and being confronted with the enormity of my stash ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ), and fostersย support from fellow makeup addicts! ๐Ÿ˜€

Myย No-Buy-Low-Buy Hybrid for 2017 is as follows:
January: Free For All again
February โ€“ March: No-Buy
April: $200 for Sephora VIB sale
May โ€“ June: No-Buy
July: $200 for birthday hauling
August โ€“ October: No-Buy
November โ€“ December: $300 per month for VIB, Black Friday, and holidays

So thatโ€™s 7 months of No-Buy and 5 months of Low-Buy. Letโ€™s see how I fare!

Join me as I blog about matters relating toย my stash, and try my darnedest not to add to it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Dear Stashy,

    I discovered your blog a few months ago, doing a Google search on cosmetics made in China. Since then, I have been visiting it regularly, catching up on many of your previous posts.

    I like your blog so much for many reasons. Your site is attractive and well organised. You are Canadian and your price references are in Canadian dollars. You are Toronto based, so I am familiar with many of the products and stores that you mention. I enjoy your writing style and sense of humour. Your reviews are so detailed that I get a really good sense of which products I would like to try and which to avoid. I also like the way that you describe your consumer experience online/instore. As well, I enjoy your travel posts, also extremely detailed with many personal observations. You have a loyal international community of readers in the comments section. It is so cool to be able to read the views and experiences of beauty lovers in other countries. Please keep up the great work and best of luck to you!

    1. Hi Debra! Thanks so much for your kind note! I’ve been seeing your comments on the blog – thank you so much for taking the time to comment and read through my blog.
      I agree, it’s amazing to have such an international and diverse community of people talking about things we love. I started this blog purely as a hobby and to connect with people online. Have you ever considered starting your own blog? I always want to encourage more Canadian bloggers! ๐Ÿ™‚
