Consumerist Christmas Christmas is a time for giving. As the song beckons ‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year’, people scramble to purchase the ‘perfect’ gift for their loved ones. Family traditions are created and the whole family gather around the beautifully decorated tree to exchange gifts and then eat copious amounts of food,…

Now I am all for a good splurging at this time of year, my Christmas Decoration Haul proves that, but I am also a bit of a Scrooge when it comes to the whole holiday season makeup thing. So with a big old ‘Bah Humbug’ I bring you my second Anti Haul of all the products I will NOT be buying over the holiday season.
