Shop Your Stash #2

Hiya pickles,

Welcome to the Shop Your Stash challenge. This is all about finding a gem in what you already own and creating a blog post on it. This is to let go a little of the stress that comes with being a blogger - even if it is just once a month. Rummage through your beauty products and climb through those clothes drawers. You might surprise yourself!

It's time to shop our stashes again and this month I wanted to talk about my collection of lovely indie eyeshadows. I have stuff by Darling Girl (my fave indie seller by far), Detrivore, Starcrushed Minerals, Aromaleigh, Carina Dolci, Little Mouse Ears and other companies who sell loose make up pigments.

My stash of indie make up

A couple of years ago my blog was more focused towards make up so I used my indie stuff a lot more. I'm not quite sure what happened, but I became less comfortable with showing close ups of my face (possibly due to the condition my skin was in back then, and/or being wary of showing my ageing face) and I deleted most of those posts and don't really do them any more. Now I'm a lot busier with my blog (and need to sleep more because my CFS is worse) I don't have ages to spend in front of a mirror doing my make up each day. I'm a strictly 5 minute face girl most of the time, and as most indie products are loose they need a little more time to work with, and that's not me right now.

Hopefully at some point in the future I can give these pretties some love. I'm still waiting for our curtain situation to improve so I have enough light to sit in my bedroom and do my make up. Oh yeah, and I still need a desk, too! ;) Hahaha.

Have you got loads of something which is unloved?

Here are the other ladies shopping their own stashes.
