Update: 40-Day Shopping Cleanse

It’s been about 3 weeks already since I started my 40-day shopping cleanse and boy has it been hard! I’ll admit that I did cave a couple times, but not for anything extraordinarily big.

According to the “rules” of Lent, we are allowed to indulge in the things that we gave up for the 40 days of the preparation. One of my weak moments occurred on a Sunday so maybe it doesn’t count? I did feel a little guilty though. I bought myself the Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet fragrance. Like I said before I’m obsessed with perfume!! I did only get the smaller bottle though.

The perfect light and sensual floral scent with notes of Sicilian orange, peonies, Damascus rose, and white musk.

The only other thing that I caved in for was a mani-pedi. This felt necessary…! Yet I didn’t go for my usual acrylic mani and shellac pedi, I went with the simplest of combos and got regular nail polish on both hands and feet!

I still think I’m doing pretty well with my cleanse considering it’s been an entire 3 weeks and I haven’t stepped foot into the mall! I’ll keep you all updated on whether or not I stay strong for the remainder of my cleanse 😉 I’ll also be doing a post about the organization I’m donating too next week, so stay tuned for that! It’s a neat and great way to give back.
