  1. Nice job. :-) I finished mine last week and I think I'm already back to old habits! Ahhhh! But I gave myself a pass for June because I am doing so much traveling and shopping and vacationing stuff. After I think I will probably go back to this to something similar. Keep up the good work!

    1. I knowww, I noticed that you were done and I was sad xD You're in NYC sometime this month right?? I'm still down to go shopping with you sometime lol. Thank you so much for the wishes <3

  2. Congrats! Don't worry about the hiatus, it took me two weeks to read this post and I like reading your Project no buy posts.

    1. Thank you so much Rebecca!! I was struggling a lot with the eyesight and as frustrating as it is to edit the content for a post right now, I think it's even more frustrating not to be posting haha. So the lesser of two evils wins!
