Temptalia Asks You


What was the last lipgloss you finished? Did you/are you going to repurchase it?

Temptalia's Answer.

I finished Fresh’s Lip Balm – does that count? I don’t know if I’ve ever finished a lipgloss.

Happy Sunday!

How’s your Sunday treating you?   I like to try to take it easy on Sundays, though I usually end up taking it easier on Saturday, get mad at myself for it, and then try to make up for it on Sundays!

What are your Sunday plans? We’ll be heading over to a local farmer’s market (our usual weekend ritual!) for some fresh fruit, veggies, and the like.  I grabbed some delicious toffee last weekend, and I think I’m going to have to sneak some in this time, too! Yum!

Are you ready for Monday? Yes!  I love Mondays.  I love how busy and full Mondays tend to be :)  Keeps me on the straight and narrow!

Best part of your weekend? We went hiking with Mellan yesterday morning, which was fun for all!

Temptalia Asks You


How good are you at removing your makeup? Do you ever forget?

Temptalia's Answer.

NEVER! I mean, obviously, I have in the past, but I’ve taken my makeup off without fail for five years now!
