A couple of housecleaning items to kick off today’s post. First: May the Fourth be with you! 😀 And second: I seem to be in spam hell once again. I’ve left a bunch of comments yesterday on various blogs and they all disappeared. It’s so frustrating when that happens – can you please check your spam box?

Onward to my April Trash Stash! This month turned out to be ok for empties – I thought I’d have only a few to show but I am on an ambitious plan to clear out my cabinets of items that just aren’t working for me.
It was fairly well balanced in terms of skincare, body, hair and makeup stuff, actually.
It’s April already! Did anyone get pranked on April Fools Day? 😛 Mine was uneventful. Here are the empties that March yielded:
I got a bit nervous at around mid-March since I didn’t have a lot of empties in my bag but it seems at the tail-end of the month, I was able to use up a bunch. 🙂
Finally, a mani on a Monday. An actual Mani Monday! 😛
This is the nail polish that was one of my favourite nail polish discoveries of 2016 and I even made the bold claim that it’s the best formula I’ve tried all year – it is: CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in #95 Being Blonde.
It’s always a mad race at the end of the month to have all my trash presented nicely and the give their final photograph before they’re tossed out! XD
I’m a bit nervous about whether I hit my target of one per day quota…
This post captures the rest of Hauluary:
Most were bought on-line and some were bought up until the very last day of January! 😉
First Trash Stash of 2017!
As you may recall, in my 2016 Trash Stash summary post, I expressed interest in trying to achieve 365 empties for 2017 (aka 1 empty per day). Let’s see how I did.
The title of this post is misleading since January was neither No- or Low-Buy. It was the magnificent month of Haulaury! 😀
I can’t be the only one who succumbed to all the post-holiday sales?
Nail polish haulage deserve its own post! 😎
I have no regrets! 😛
When I look at it all together like this, I think I got a bit carried away with makeup hauling…
But when you pick up a little bit here, a little bit there, it doesn’t seem like it’s that much! 😉 I wasn’t able to go on actual Boxing Day to shop but many of the deals are available for the whole month of January – basically when stores sell out of stuff is when the sales end! 😛
And here it is – as you can imagine, trying to narrow down the best items was difficult! These items are new to me but may not be new launches in 2016. Also, these items may not necessarily be my absolute “Holy Grail” of all time – they’re simply the best from the past year (I probably should do a “Holy Grail of All Time” post one of these days…) Here’s what made it into my Best of 2016 Discoveries list:
A departure from previous years, instead of doing Top 10 or “Top xx of 20xx” (ie. Top 16 of 2016), I’ll list top items within categories: makeup, skincare, nails, body care etc. This post is long but rather than breaking into several posts, I decided to do it all in one – I just hate it when they break movies into 2 parts – I don’t want to do that to you! 😛
