Five on Friday - January 4, 2018

Happy Friday everyone - how exciting this is my first Five on Friday of 2019! I hope everyone had an amazing New Years however you chose to celebrate it - I personally celebrated around 10:00 p.m. and then went to bed! 


I'm not one for New Year's Resolutions, but I do like goal setting and I thought it was important to start off with a few attainable goals for me and See The World in PINK:
-stick to my $100 a mont budget
-try new brands
-create a shop my stash at least once a month
-be more conscious about what I purchase, and don't give in to every hype
-maybe film a video (this one's a total stretch and I've said it before; but, I'm not sure I'm ready for the video world!)

It's interesting, this year I've seen a ton of youtubers do a no or a low buy year - I don't really consider trying to stay to an actual budget a low-buy for me, I just want to make sure I'm really thinking through what I purchase; because, I really want to make sure I'm enjoying and using the products I love in my collection and not having them get lost! 


I'm starting off the year with a little bit of a new addition - a Monthly Makeup basket! Now, it's not very big; because, I'm maintaining my palette of the week so I'm rotating eyeshadows every week. It's more so to focus on using my face products - specifically blush and highlight that I very much tend to stick to 3 or 4 favorites! 

So, this month I'm going to focus on three blushes - Essence, Note, and Too Faced, and three highlighters - Vintage by Jessika Liebskind, ColourPop, and a Smashbox trio. Now, of course if I think I need to mix it up, I can add concealers or foundations or something each month as I see needed! I really think this will help me figure out what I love or don't need in my collection!


I have been regularly decluttering from my collection each month - just if a shade or formula doesn't work as I'm using or trying something; but, I always like to start the year with a thorough declutter and organization!  

I can count about 100 products here, and I didn't photograph everything! It's not as if anything you see here was pretty terrible, this year end declutter is more so about having products that work for me. So, it's usually that the products are getting old, or I'd like to pass them on to a friend before they get too old to enjoy! Or the shade match or formula just in't for me personally, and most of the skincare has been in my collection too long and it's probably expired! 

I'm happy with this declutter - I never set a number or percentage of products I like to get rid off, it's just about making sure I pass on what I won't use and making sure the product is good still! 


This week's "palette" of the week is my ColourPop Super Shock shadows - this was actually a good pick this week; because, I forgot to go through and declutter these and there a few that won't make it through the week! But, I tend to love the shades of these and then never use them, and I like these as lid toppers, so I'm glad to have used them this week! 


I decided to remove my Books page from my menu bar (well, it's entirely deleted), and since I track my books on Goodreads (if we aren't friends yet, add me here!) and I can chat about and read books there. I will still talk about them on my Friday posts, they just won't have a full dedicated review for each of these on the blog itself. 

I hope you all have a great weekend! 


  1. If you are ever selling any eyeshadow pallets I would be interested. We are actually in Calgary next Thursday night :)
