Another bad month for health and wealth.  I do have a lot of returns I've been too busy to pack up, so the credit card number will go down.  I've been going out too much after work, and that generally leaves me ripe for a messy evening, food-wise (and at least $20 poorer).  As for the rest of it, I either need to start seriously thrifting, or just ban new clothing purchases all together.

Also, Sarah, it's time to stop trying new skincare and cosmetic products.  That weird mask you tried with Taiwanese instructions on the box gave you pimples.  You don't wear primer or foundation or eye shadow or lipstick, and you never will.  So stop.  New things I don't regret buying, though: bronzer, highlighter, a vitamin-c serum, and more of an eyeliner I know I already like (but that's a topic for a whole nother post).  So there.  ...But seriously, stop.
