April Goals Summary + May: A Month of Samples!


It's May already! A pinch and a punch for the first day of the month, no returns. Let's see how I did with my April Goals ......

Neighbourhood cat 'Panda' :)


Write A Media Kit ~ NO
I feel, at this point, I will never get this done. Every spare minute I get to spend on my blog is used writing posts or taking and editing photos. Not to mention advertising posts, otherwise what's the point of writing them? I'm losing hope, but I want this done and out of the way. 

Clean Out MakeUp Organiser ~ YES!
So proud! My makeup organiser looks so much better and I can find products toot sweet. Thank you, self!

Join Affiliate Programs ~ NO
See above explanation for why I didn't get my Media Kit done. Sad face!

Get Quotes For Bathroom Renovation ~ YES!
This was an arduous yet necessary process that sucked from start to finish, but it's done. On to the next step. Yay! (That was a sarcastic yay).

SUMMARY - I accomplished two out of four set goals, so either the glass is half full or half empty, depending on the way you look at it!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I have something exciting planned for May! I'm easily excited, so keep that in mind as I introduce...

MAY: A MONTH OF SAMPLES!

You know how I'm always collecting free samples? Check out past posts A Spot Of Shopping and Free Samples? You Beauty! for proof. Well, guess what? They build up!



I've set myself a challenge! In May, I'll be working my way through this massive lot of sample sachets and mini-sized products, trying to use up as many as I can. Fingers crossed my skin doesn't break out from the influx of different brands I'll be slapping on it. I'll be making notes along the way to keep track of which samples may be worth picking up in the full size, and will report back in a future blog post on those products that blew my mind with their sheer awesomeness!

Wish me luck!

    1. No! Every time I start searching I get overwhelmed and give up. Can you recommend a good one?

  5. I hoard my samples because I have this idea that they will be great for travel but then I end up with so many and its not like I travel often...lol

  8. Wow, what a huge stash of samples!! Good luck! I've the feeling of finishing samples and throwing them out. So satisfying and use up for much quicker than full size products.

    My current goal is to write a media kit too! Tine's (from Beautyholicsanonymous.com) e-book is very helpful.
