Happy Friday!

  • Haul: Lancome Tresor eyeshadows
  • Weekend plans: Freak out! I can’t believe it’s December already. My parents will be visiting soon, so I need to get ahead of my reviews so I don’t spend all my time working while they’re here, haha!
  • What’s your favorite holiday movie?: We re-watch the entire Harry Potter movie series, which is probably one of my favorite things about the holidays. Following that, The Holiday, duh.

  2. What didn’t impress you?
