Daddy and Uncle are going to Las Vegas for Uncle’s birthday, and my cousin Ender (a 2 year old Shiba/Eskie mix) is staying with Mommy and me for the next four days! It’s a puppy slumber party! I loveeeee slumber parties!

(Note from Mom:  It’s Memorial Day, so hopefully you are all having fun with friends and family, while I dogsit two beasts!)

Now, if you want to sleep over at my place, you have to follow these rules! (OK, some of them are Mom-enforced.)

Make sure you look your very, very, very best! I just had a super grooming session a few days before, plus Mom made me wash my hair right before company was coming over.

I got bored and was feeling very, very minutely creative, so I thought I’d share these MAC-inspired icons/avatars :) Use them as you please, just don’t re-distribute without crediting Temptalia.com!

So Roselyn tagged me to share six quirky facts about myself, and here goes!

  • I love doing jigsaw puzzles, like insanely large ones. The largest I’ve ever done was 12,000 pieces, and it was of the New York City skyline pre-9/11. I actually have it framed in three chunks. Someday I’ll have a house where I have a wall long enough that I can hang it on!
  • You know logic puzzles? The ones where you have to figure out who did what and when they did it with what vehicle or something like that. I was so excited to take the LSAT just because you got to practice logic games, LOL.
  • I used to edit ten online magazines when I was age 13 to 18 (yes, seriously, ten!). They were “zines” that I distributed via email on AOL. I think the most subscribers I ever had for one individual magazine was around 5,000.
  • I graduated with 300 units from my undergraduate institution, where the minimum amount to graduate was 180, in three years. (Too bad my GPA wasn’t particularly outstanding, above a 3, but yeah — don’t rush through college!)
  • I’m terribly allergic to rodents (including guinea pigs, which I’ve always loved) and cats, and I’m even a bit allergic to dogs (!).
  • I hate law school with a passion!

Six quirky BEAUTY-related facts…

  • I hate the way upper lash liner looks and feels on me… I swear, it makes my lids feel so heavy and droopy.
  • I’m utterly confounded by the vast amount of ingredients in products, not to mention all of the products available.
  • Beauty blogging has opened up an entire realm of brands, products, and knowledge I never knew before.
  • I am addicted to chapstick, and I prefer all my lip balm to be in stick form.
  • I’ve put vaseline on my lips everyday night since I was five.
  • I am an utter dunce when it comes to applying false eyelashes! I either will get it done SUPER quick or it’ll take me an hour to get one side done.

I could tag other bloggers, but why can’t I just keep tagging… YOU! Share six quirky facts about you 😉 Oh, and if you like a challenge, share six quirky BEAUTY-related facts about yourself, too!

Oh, Nordstrom’s, how you tempt me, let me count the ways… Dior Golds 569 quint is calling to me. I am rarely so tempted by high end brands like Chanel, Dior, etc., so when something nearly inspires me to buy, it’s an occasion to mark down! I reviewed and used the Goldfever quint a couple of weeks ago, but boy do I wish I had the Golds quint instead! This one is full of colors that are utterly me (okay, except the white color).  (Hey, anyone want to trade?!) What stopped me from caving? Oh, the fact that just five minutes before I already sealed the deal with some fantastic new high heels (BCBGirls Saraff, $110!) that will kill my feet…

Dior Goldrushicon Summer collection is now available, btw! And of course, BCBGirls Saraff Slingback Sandalsicon. Damn you Nordstrom’s! You get me every visit!
