Downsizing My Collection: I Gave MORE Away

On Saturday, I had a baby shower to attend with several of the women with whom I work.  I knew that several attendees enjoyed makeup as much as I do and several had young daughters who also enjoy makeup so I decided to bring along my train case of makeup that I've been trying to giveaway (click here for the first blog post about giving away items).  These are the same women that I usually get together twice a year to have swaps with but today I didn't want to get anything in return (I already have enough!  lol).  I didn't expect it to go as well as it did but you can see my train case is pretty much empty now.  I am very sorry to all the people who were hoping to buy some items, but I definitely plan to keep the idea in my mind of a blog sale or blog giveaway for the future, as I'm sure this is not my last round of downsizing.  Below, I have a list of all the items I selected.  The items that are bold and have an asterisk (*) beside them are items I gave away during round one.  The items that are just bold are the items that were selected by my friends at the baby shower.  I feel like a giant load of anxiety has been lifted from my shoulders!

  1. That's awesome! I've given some eyeshadows to a coworker of mine but she's not that much into makeup. I don't have many people that I can give stuff to.

    1. I have a small group of friends at work who will take my free makeup but none of them are as into it as I am. Mostly I had one coworker who took a lot of things for her two daughters to have, which I was thrilled about, especially since one of her daughters is in my class and is a total angel who deserves free fun stuff. Made my day to make her day!
