Time For An Intervention: Hallmark & Lipgloss

I’ve got one or two minor addictions in my life. One is Hallmark or Papyrus…or Paper Source…or really any card aisle at the grocery store. I love them. I love reading cards. I love sending cards. Ironically I don’t necessarily love getting them. I appreciate them when I do get them but I don’t need to receive them. I much prefer to give them. While it may not seem like that should be that big of a problem, it is an expensive one! I don’t know how to walk out of a store buying less than 10 cards. (Mission for today: find out how much money worth of cards I have in my card box at home.)

I didn’t realize how bad my lipgloss addiction was until one of my girlfriends pointed it out while we were shopping at Sephora. In my little basket I had 3 different glosses, when she said, “Do you really need more lipgloss?” I was shocked thinking IT’S ONLY 3?!?! She then asked me to go through my purse and pull out all lip related items… 9 Glosses later I realized I should put at least 2 back.

Addiction handled! Right? WRONG! We then went to CVS (needed cat food…Crazy Cat Woman) while she wasn’t looking I snuck down the make up aisle and found this Physician’s Formula lipgloss and put it in my cart. It was the perfect color pink! And it had a heart in it! And I just needed it.

  • So with you on both of these obsessions — I still send traditional mail (and love it!), and greeting cards are awesome. I’m also super into stationery . . . another major issue for me! And lip gloss? YES. I have yet to find a lip product I love so much that it replaces everything else I carry around with me. I probably have at least a half dozen glosses/moisturizers in my purse right now. Is there such a thing as too much?
