Finish 5 By Fall Tag


Hey you! It's Friday! But you know what is isn't? FALL! No ma'am--not yet. I've yet to enjoy anything remotely resembling fall (my fave season) around here. I was tagged by Youtuber Melissa Bubbles to do this tag. And I'm tagging YOU! Just pick 5 things you want to finish by fall! And while mine are mostly beauty-related, I extend this tag for anything (5 books, 5 summer pieces you want to wear one last time, etc).

Check out my super-quick video below, which I filmed on 2 hours of sleep, so you need to watch for the deliriousness. Is that a word? It is now!

Can't see the video? 
C&p this link into Google Translate. Click translate and it will show up!


Clear Shampoo--I've repurchased this many times, but I've been reviewing other products lately, so I keep forgetting to finish this. Need.more.room.in.shower. The struggle, y'all.

Samples--These things keep multiplying! Ahh! I'm using them up (I share other options in the video) or tossing them. And this is just a sample (hehe) of my samples.

Garnier BB Cream--Another repurchase, and another almost-empty. This is my "summer" shade, so I want to finish it up.

Mascaras--I am not allowing myself to open up another tube until I finish these! Luckily some are samples and some are almost unusable.

Candles--See? I told you anyone could play along with this tag. I am not allowing myself to buy any fall candles until I finish at least 2 summer ones. I don't think it's a surprise to anyone I chose a coconut candle. My FAVE! Speaking of faves, let me know your fave fall candles! (edit: now finished!)

So those are my 5 I will finish before fall! I'm tagging YOU! Feel free to do this tag on your channel, blog, or social media. Have a great weekend. Be safe, behave, and be well. Love, Elle

  2. Soooooooooooo not fall yet! People need to understand we have until the 23 before summer is over!

    Great video!

  3. I also love clear shampoo! Lately I've been using John Frieda's luxurious volume though. I like to switch mine every now and then. XO

  4. I need to go through all my makeup and do a list of things to finish before the fall...I'm starting to stockpile too many things!

  5. You are so adorbs! I rarely finish a product other than lip gloss - and usually that only occurs because the tube starts leaking, or something. :P

  7. I love this idea! I'm definitely in a "don't buy anything new until you finish the old" mood right now, but I like that this is much more focused.

  10. I hope you are able to get a nap in. I also have to tell you. You had me laughing over her about the men shaving cream. My favorite shampoo is suave.

  11. Great tag, Elle! I have been trying to finish my mountains of samples before moving but so far I failed miserably. I ended up giving my mum tons of it. I have that Garnier BB cream too and yes, I too should try to use it more often. So many products, so little time. LOL!

  16. Great post and video! I'm about to do a Project 10 Pan on my blog soon which is kind of like the same thing! I am the same way with shampoo, my hair gets immune to certain types if I use the same ones all the time. I have several in my shower that I rotate haha, they take up so much room!

  17. I love the Garnier BB cream! That's the one I use in the summer too! :)

    ReplyDelete

  20. Good luck Elle on finishing this all! Somebody tagged me too to do this but somehow I don´t want to feel under pressure to finish anything up- I want to finish my products on my terms- lol! :-) Kisses, Sissi www.beauty4free2u.com

  21. This is such a good idea, totally could use the kick in the pants to get motivated to do all the things I have hanging over my head! Have a great weekend :)

  22. Such a cool idea! I have so many unfinished projects lying around that I think would be an achievement to finish for fall!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love this idea! Yes, it is still soooo hot! I am so ready for the fall weather to get here. It has been like 95 degrees or hotter every day. Good luck finishing up your products! xoxo Lauren

  24. Love the timeliness of this post! Slow work day, so I finally organized all of our important docs (and used the office's supplies to make snazzy folders and labels ha). Good luck finishing up your tasks. Happy weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm the same with the samples, they just keep piling up in the drawer:) Love the mascara kiss sound:)

    ReplyDelete
  26. this is such a great idea! i really need to do the 'no more mascara' one lol i dont think i have ever finished a tube of mascara!
    good luck with all of your to-dos :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. It doesn't feel like it should be fall yet! It's too hot down here in Georgia!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I agree with you! I want to finish up my summer BB creams that will be too dark for me once my tan is gone.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love seeing your silly side in this video! I looked at all of my beauty products recently and realized that I should really be using things up before I bring more into the house so I think I may take you up on this and film something over the weekend! I'll let you know so you can check it out!

    ReplyDelete
  30. My last empties was really satisfying. I haven't done a finish blank by blank kind of thing as yet. I should consider it, maybe it will motivate me even more. I need to finish some more lip products :-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I still need to try the Garnier Bb Cream.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I want to finish up some summer candles by fall too, but then I get sad because I don't want them to be gone lol!

    ReplyDelete
  33. nice list! I'd like to finish more of my BBW lotions before I buy anymore lol

    ReplyDelete
  34. What a fun tag! I've been meaning to tackle my sample pile, too, so maybe that will be one of my fall goals :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. so cute! I really wish you DIDN'T hold back on that Australian accent ;) I'm the same way with shampoos. we currently have those cute little bottles from OGX..I give it a thumbs up.

    ReplyDelete
  36. What a fun tag! Hmm...maybe I'll have to do this... Do you plan on doing a tag later on and letting us know if you reached your goal? :-)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm so with you on using up those samples! I love collecting them, but they really do pile up quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  38. What a fun tag. I did mine here: http://sandyleestyle.blogspot.ca

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love this tag, Elle! I might do this. Good luck busting through those samples, girl! This video cracked me up - loved when you tossed the BB cream and it hit the shampoo, LOL! Your reaction was adorable. Ooh if you like gourmand scents, I highly recommend B&BW Pumpkin Caramel Latte. OMG! Our whole apartment smells like delicious pumpkiny coffee goodness. I might buy back ups upon back ups of that scent! On the cheaper tip, Kohl's has a line of candles called Sonoma life + style that look like B&BW ones and are FANTASTIC. I'm burning one right now called Tahitian Escape that smells like summer. Sometimes you can pick them up on sale for $7.99 for the large 3-wick!

  40. What a great idea! I have so many products to finish too!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Great video! And great tag! I have way to much samples as well. Maybe I should try and finish them before fall as well!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh my goodness, so many mascaras and samples to go through. Good luck girl!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I had subscribed to your channel so I watched this vid last night without even seeing the post first haha great vid!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I sat down and wrote out the things I'd like to do this fall, but a lot of it equated to having fun and self-nurturing. :) I probably need to go back to my list and sketch in a few hefty goals. ;) T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  46. I have a ton of candles to finish before Fall. But to be honest in Florida I still burn my Island Coconut candles all year long hehe.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Haha love that you are having to finish candles- we are the same way in my house. We have so many candles right now and nowhere to put them!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Haha I never finish candles. I keep buying and buying. So addicted to them.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I never finish lotions...I always get suckered in to buy a new and improved one and now have a closet full of lotions!

    ReplyDelete
  50. This is such a great idea! I have been collecting products for a long time and never seem to get rid of any. All of the fall candles at Bath & Body Works are amazing!!
