Welcome to Towards Simplicity. I blog my goals, especially my reading and studies, and my ongoing downscaling and using up of material stuff and working towards a more minimalist lifestyle.

Finally joining in 'Pan That Palette'
This is something I thought I'd never do as I don't really have much in the way of palettes since my big clear out nearly 2 years ago, but then I realised that I'd rather not have any in future and so decided to pan not only the lippies (which are well in progress, as you can see) in these 3 multi-use palettes, but also the eyeshadows. The blushers will probably get depotted to be used up later as it takes forever to make a dint in a blusher and I'm still plugging away at one I've been on with since January 2015 - and there was only half of it left then!
The last time I tried to use up an eyeshadow palette I got fed up within a week as it was all browns and that bores me, so this should be better. I'm going to use other stuff too, but concentrate on this mostly. I'll be glad to not have these around too much longer - esp. as there's a bit of a problem taking them out and about for retouches given the, erm, rather risqué cover designs! Not really the sort of thing that fits in well with my social circle... ☺
1: When in doubt, take the next small step.
2: Life is too short to waste hating anyone - even if you do have forever!
3: Whatever doesn't kill you often makes you stronger.
4: Make peace with your past so it won't interfere with the present.
5: Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. Get the best from what YOU have.
6: Children get only one childhood - let them have it. There's nothing worse than a 9 year old adult.
7: Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear fancy lingerie. Don't save it for that special occasion that never comes. Today is a gift - that's why it's called 'the present'.=)
8: Be yourself now, you don't have to wait for old age to wear purple!
9: No one is in charge of your happiness but you and no-one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
10: React to each perceived disaster with these words. 'In five years, will this matter?'
11: Forgive everyone everything, who has the energy to carry around the weight of grudges?
12: The best is yet to come. Psalm 37:29

My rainbow is strongly shaded green and violet.
