Beauty To-do Lists: Do you have one?


Apparently its a Virgo thing: Whenever I can't sleep, I pull out a notebook and start making lists. Things to do, books to read, recipes to try, lists of lemmings... You get the idea. Call me obsessive-compulsive but I find list-making quite soothing whenever I feel overwhelmed by work and other things.

Whether I actually get around to ticking all the things off the list is another story all together.

I finally managed to tick everything off my to-do list yesterday. I was on sick leave so I finally had the time to wash my brushes (neglected them for over a month, eww) and neaten my eyebrows (went veerrrry slooowly as I was worried the fever might impair my judgement). Shaving last week made me realise that I have to replace my razor as blunt shaving tackle is just asking for trouble and I managed to give my unwanted cosmetics away to a delighted cousin.

Ahh... It felt like placing a puppy with a good home.

What about you? Do you have to-do beauty lists or are you so organised, you don't need one at all?

I do, but I'm more on the traditional side, I write them down! that's why my organizer is "FOR MY EYES ONLY" hahahaha

I knew I wasn't the only one who does that! Hahaha, I do it all.the.time. Now I'm compiling a book (not even a list, too many things and I have illustrations etc) of everything related to my dream wedding. Think I'm crazy.

my eyebrows have been on my to-do list for the forever-est of times.

i don't have a beauty list per se. i live in organized chaos so i do wish i had your penchant for organization! :)

I'm a Virgo too! And I can relate- I'm forever writing down lists, be it beauty-related, general to-do, to-buy, lists of things, etc. I help that it really helps me cope especially when I'm feeling overwhelmed by 1001 things to do :P

I do try to settle everything on my lists, and being slightly OCD I do achieve about at least 95%. Thankfully for that, or I'll be doing a list of lists to clear haha! :D

"Apparently it's a Virgo thing"...it most certainly is because I do this exact thing. And actually, my list usually looks like an exact copy of yours...lol.
