I asked readers what they might like to see on here and many said for me to revisit old posts. I was just getting started in 2009 so May 2009 didn't have a lot of posts. I plan to revisit them ALL in this post.
The birth of my BE Nirvana:
In May 2009, I felt overwhelmed by my makeup collection which was mostly Bare Escentuals. I always used to buy a lot of new products in May when they had an anniversary show on QVC because they had new goodies and special prices and my birthday is in May. I started out calling it a diet and it grew into a Nirvana with the help of punkinwitch at BE Addicts on Delphi Forums. She said it sounded more like a nirvana than a diet and the name stuck ever since. My idea was to use it or lose it and I wore each BE color through the coming months, each color without repeat and at the end, I had to decide if there were colors to part with. I posted updates throughout the months following and successfully wore all of my colors. I did really well with this mission because I wasn't allowed to buy anything new until I was almost done. As I look at my much larger collection now, I wonder if maybe I should take some notes from 2009 me and stop the shopping for a while?
My posts from 2009:
My obsession with the new 100% Natural Lip Glosses also started in May 2009, well probably a little before that. Needless to say, I pretty much bought all of them. I still love these glosses. It was so funny how I decided to part with all my lippies that weren't natural and move on and then tadah! BE had all natural lipsticks and glosses launching. Perfect timing!
Last but not least, I posted about Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay. I have to say, this is still an all time favorite product. I use it weekly most of the time. I place a warm wash cloth on my face to open my pores, then apply a layer of the mixture of clay and apple cider vinegar on my face and leave it for about 15 minutes. Once I rinse it off, my pores feel amazing. You can find this at most natural stores or online at shops like Amazon or Mothernature.com
