Temptalia Asks You

Not really! When I was in college, my parents knew I was extremely financially responsible (and they could also see my bank accounts, since they are linked to theirs… still are, haha) and wasn’t spending outside of my means. Then, I started the blog, and so to my parents, spending money on makeup was investing in the blog, which they were always supportive of. My then-boyfriend/now-husband has similarly always been supportive for the same reasons–a lot of the excess is due to the blog. Everybody basically knows I run a tight ship when it comes to money, and I’m a saver overall, so when they see me spend money, they are confident that I’ve already assessed the situation and made a good decision.

Tom Ford Lips & Boys boxed set from last year I believe (might have been two years ago?) – the box itself wasn’t worth it at all; just not worth the up-charge and came with scratches as it was not really boxed well (less the retailer’s fault as it should have had peel-off plastic to begin with to protect the glossy finish).
