31 Day Challenge! Day 20! What do I collect?

Wednesday 20 March 2013

I can't believe that there are only 11 days left of this challenge! Time has FLOWN since Day 1... Anyway... I've never had a 'hobby' as such of collecting certain things. Like some people collect stamps or weird ornaments or whatever. There are two main things I collect, one is physical and the other is mental.

I collect and horde makeup. I'm ashamed to say that I am forever buying makeup whenever I have the opportunity and they I rarely get to wear it because I'm not the kind of person that wears a lot of makeup! I am hoping that once I leave uni I will start wearing more makeup everyday but we'll see. The worst thing I horde is eyeshadows I have a tonne of eyeshadow palettes that have barely seen the light of day and I still keep buying more. I am addicted. As well as that I currently own 130 nail polishes:

Most of which I have collected since opening my Nail Blog in November. Wow... I have a serious problem. Although saying that I haven't bought any polish since January! Actually that's a lie... I bought 1 polish last month... but still I am getting better!

This next thing I collect is going to sound really cheesy... but I like to think that I collect memories. Some of my most prized possessions are memories of friends and family, the majority of which are funny ones. I even have some nice memories of my ex, which I can now think about without being in crippling pain from heartbreak. I have lots of funny memories from me and my uni friends, and even a few from my old Secondary school mates. Sometimes I like to take a trip down memory lane and look at old photos and remember the stories behind them!

So there you have it! Those are the things that I collect. Let me know in the comments if there is anything that you collect! If you want to check out my other challenge days then please check the links below:

  1. That's an impressive nail polish collection. I hoard eye shadow and mascara, so I totally understand your make up obsession. I'm actually waiting on more to be delivered.

  2. I didn't realize 130 nail polishes would look like SO MUCH nail polish. That's pretty cool.

  3. I'm a nail polish hoarder too! Anytime I lose one to the ravages of time, I'm heartbroken. It's like losing a friend!

  4. I wish I could jump the pond and use some of that nail polish!! What an impressive collection. I also collect memories in the form of mementos.


    I'm laughing so hard!
