I’ve been doing a lot of reorganising of stuff recently (and very little writing, but we won’t mention that), and it strikes me that I just have a lot of stuff. I’ve talked about this before in terms of why I couldn’t ever embrace minimalism (too many hobbies), but there are also just things that accumulate. Like lipstick.
Now anyone who knows me would probably be hard pressed to say when they last saw me wearing lipstick, so this may seem strange.
In general cosmetics and I don’t get on you see, but lipstick is the one thing I can wear. So I have, over the years, accrued a couple and it surprised me how many (though very few compared to most makeup wearing ladies I know).
They all still work. They are all colours I like. So I guess they’ll get worn again. For now they’ve been rehoused so they’re easier to get to and I certainly don’t need to buy any new ones!
