Happy Sunday!

Hope you’ve been having a lovely and relaxing weekend!  We had a nice dinner out last night, and Mellan received the new bow tie collars and toy I ordered him (he may have as many toys as I have makeup… okay, maybe not).  Today will be low-key with grocery shopping and that’s about it :)

  3. MAC Deep Damson — a matte burgundy
