Project Life Detox - Update and Eyeliner Destash

I mentioned before that my Project Life Detox has gone off the rails. It's still off the rails. Try as I might it's just not happening.
I've realised that in order to detox my life I need to detox myself first, so in a few weeks time I'm starting the Rejuvenate Program. I'm really excited about it and can see it benefiting the whole family. I probably know most things that Caroline is going to tell me, but I need someone to kick start me. I can't expect to detox my life when I haven't detoxed myself first. I need to feel refreshed and calm in order to transform my household. 

When I first looked at the program I thought it was expensive, but after considering it I think it's very reasonably priced. Plus, what value do I put on my health? I'm worth it. It's going to be really nice to put myself first and do something just for me. I haven't done that since before I had Chai and it's way overdue.

Yesterday I was looking for a lilac lip liner. Turns out I don't own one. Can anyone recommend one to me?

Since I couldn't find a lilac lip liner did an eyeliner destash. I have a ridiculous amount of eyeliners (75) and yet I only use one of them. Yes, that's right, I wear the same eyeliner every day. I went through them all and tossed out 26 straight away then I grouped them all into colours and tossed out anther 16. I tried three on and tossed them as well, leaving me with a total of 45 liners tossed.
Cull round one. These ones all went because they were old, smelled funny, were duplicates or were too hard/scratchy etc.
Round 2. Most of these went because they were duplicates, a few of them were really hard.
Just a couple of swatches.
The winners! I've since got rid of three in this photo.

The liners that survived the cull are sitting in a bag ready for me to go through. I'm going to use each of them and any that I'm not happy with will be tossed. Each liner I kept is a unique colour, other than the dark green, the two I kept are nearly identical but I didn't know which one I liked best so I kept them both. I'll test them out and whichever one applies the nicest gets to stay.

Whilst I was on a roll I tossed a whole pile of stickers and bits and pieces I had been planning to use whilst doing craft with the kids. They were sitting in a tool box and the boys would regularly get everything out and throw it all over the floor. When they did that yesterday I had enough so the whole lot got tossed. I also threw out a few old plastic plates for good measure.

Next on my hit list is eye shadow. I'm not sure when I'll get to it, but I plan on being ruthless. I was eyeing them off yesterday when I was getting my eye liners out, so I'm sure the poor shadows know what's coming.

  1. Hey Anissa...honestly, we must be hitting critical mass at the same time lol. Im still wading through my collection, clothing, kids clothes etc. The only money Ive spent in almost a fortnight is on some new furniture for our kitchen and dining (ikea and fantastic furniture)- no makeup, no clothing, nada. My problems mostly makeup u might guess. The whole capsule wardrobe situations tricky atm as im a massive fatty, well relative to last year anyway. The more youtube vids i watch about simple living the more i want to really get into it. Fair to say im good at making simple things idiotically complicated. I tell you what else (sorry for the long comment), leaving social media was the best decision Ive made in going to write a follow up post, maybe next week. I havent felt this lucid in ages. Good luck with your culling!!! Xo
