Stepping outside my comfort zone

Today, I'm rocking a red lip. Earth shattering  news, right? For me, it is! Red is bold, it says notice me. I'm more of a nude lip kind of gal if I remember to apply any lip gloss. It says, "I blend." But I don't want to blend, I want to say here I am. So yesterday I walked up to the make up counter and asked for red. Daytime red (my nights aren't exactly glamorous,  let's work on bold daytime). I stood there looking like a dear in the headlights as the cosmetic consultant (see, I don't even know the proper name!) showed varying shades of red. After trying a couple, I settled on "Cherry Pop" and made my purchase totally thinking,  "I can totally return this next week." But instead,  I threw caution to the wind and hesitantly applied it this morning as I finished my make up.  I feel sassy. And I kind of like it!

I've been struggling with a serious case of the wants. I want this and that, convincing myself I NEED the coveted item. Yet, my closet is over flowing and I have no space for the new purchases. 

The next few days I'll be unsubscribing myself from retail emails and unfollowing shops on INSTAGRAM. Out of sight, out of mind?

Leave me tips in the comments how you combat a series case of the gimmes.  This girl needs some help!
