Goodie Bag

Today I brought in this bag of goodies to give away.

I used to be really bad about buying tons of stuff and never using it.  In my last clean out of under the sink (see HERE) I gave away a bunch of stuff but kept some of this with the intentions of using it.  Some of the stuff in this bag is newer for example it came free with a different product or it was a sample I received in my Birchbox.  Either way I have said enough is enough and it was time to get rid of it.  I thought about using the items as giveaways but some of them have been slightly used and let's face it my last giveaway I felt like I was begging for people to take the item.

The items in the bag are .... 
A) Eucerin Plus Intensive Care
B) Vaseline Aloe Fresh Hydrating Lotion
C) Two lotions from Victoria Secret
~ Luscious Kisses & Berry Kiss
D) Baby Oil Gel (yes sadly I used to tan bake with it)
E) Aveeno Nourish & Style Soft Hold Gel -Cream 
F) Dr. Hauschka Radiant You Set Skin Care - Birchbox Sample
G) Two body butters from Victoria Secret
~ Sweet Daydream & Endless Love
H) Sample Aveeno Lotion
I) Jergens Natural Glow - free with shampoo
J) Bed Head Small Talk
K) Dermalocica Daily Microfoliant - Birchbox Sample
L) Redken 06 Thicking Lotion

Seems like pretty good stuff right?  Why give it away?  I am the worst when it comes to lotion.  I never put it on and now if I need lotion I just use Shea Butter.  Plus that Jergens Natural Glow seems like WAY too much work for me.  I am never going to use it once let alone try to use it to gradually build a glow.  The hair stuff are great products they just don't work for me or I have something similar that I use and like better.  The skincare stuff is just not necessary for me.  I have good skin and I don't really have to do that much to keep it that way - lucky I guess.  

I brought the stuff in to do a swap with one co-worker.  She's bringing her goodies tomorrow.  I'll post what I get.  After she picked out what she wanted ... I just kept going from office to office until it was all gone.  It's surprising how happy people got from my freebies ... it just stuff that has been junking up my bathroom.  

Have you ever done a swap or gave away products?

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
