Free for Haul Friday

Welcome to Free For Haul Fridays!

A play on Oh No They Didn’t’s “Free For All Fridays,” every Friday is Free For Haul Fridays! Friday is a day for fun — whether you’re already off enjoying your weekend or if you just need a way to get through til the end of the work day, FFH is here for you!

Share your latest beauty hauls! Once you’ve done that… say anything you’d like. Tell us about the greatest thing that happened to you this week, why your pet is the cutest, what you’re doing this weekend… whatever!

First, I’ll share mine!

Haul: Well, I got Stereo Rose in the mail from MAC… the one that was backordered.  So, that was unexpected.  And hence, we had a giveaway!

Excited for: Seeing Wicked (the play)!

Friday plans: Help the boy find a nice pair of pants!  I wish I could say I was going to Wife Swap it up, but I’ve now watched every episode produced. Boo.

This week’s Mellan photo…


Wait, tell me again. You think you’re cuter than me?  AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    i hauled big this week ( for me at least!) I bought Dior Amber Diamond- not completely head over heels for it yet but I’ll give it time. I managed to get the urban decay naked palette – which i absolutely love and it made me realize how expensive it makes buying single eye shadows from MAC seem. Also a friend gave me a Victoria’s Secret luminizer stick (sort of like a NARS multiple) in desert twilight- SO AMAZING!!

    Mellan!! :)
    I wish I had a puppy :[

    Haul: Got a brand new bottle of my Shiseido Pureness toner :] This stuff is great, I’m on my 3rd bottle! Some ULTA automatic eyeliners that were $1, and 2 pairs of black leggings.

    Plans: I didn’t go out today, what a sad Friday. My dad is insisting that I go to the DMV on Tuesday but there are no open appointments for the next few months D: So we had that argument. At least my parents are taking me out to dinner!

  3. Aw! Mellan is so cute! :D

    Not much of a haul, but I *am* waiting for a partylicious pigment sample!

    So excited for November! I don’t know if anyone is familiar with the show Jerseylicious, with the Make Up Artist Alexa Prisco aka “The Glam Fairy”. My sister is friends with her, and she talked to her about me saying how talented I was, and she wants me to be her apprentice for a day and follow her around, possibly putting makeup on people! I’m so excited, I’m only 15, and this is going to be my real first chance at being a MUA which has been my dream for 2/3 years now. Excited, and a little nervous, lol!

  4. Polina(pbbunny97 on utube)

    Haul:
    Urban Decay Apocalyptic Nail set from beauty.com for only $13 (what a bargain!) I love all 7 colors too :)
    Lorac Breakthrough Performance Foundation – just finished up my sample this week and got the full size. I am in love, it lasts all day on my uber-oily face, and has a very natural finish

    Excited for: Dinner with friends tomorrow night

    Friday plans: Staying in, relaxing watching TV and playing on the computer

    All I bought this week was my first bottle of Boots No7 Highlights Illuminating Lotion which I LOVE on my NW15 skin (I think it’s a lot easier to use than Benefit High Beam and it’s sooo much cheaper!)…I love it so much already!!

  7. Rosie

    Haul: NYX Jumbo eye pencils in Rocky Mountain Green and Electric Blue and the other two new colors weren’t in stock. Milani Molten Rock nail polish. Sally Hansen HD polish in Laser and Spectrum. Revlon’s Colorstay Active foundation in Medium Beige.

    Excited for watching Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince at the Great Park in Irvine. And just being away from work for two days!

    Friday plans: Catching up on TV like Hell’s Kitchen and Cupcake Wars and Ace of Cakes and Cake Boss.

    For the haul, I finally got my Naked palette today! So I’m excited to try that out. I also picked up Love Lace e/s from the Vacaville CCO, and today I B2M for Retrospeck e/s. I’m excited for going to Downtown SF with my sister tomorrow, and Friday’s plans consisted of getting a new outfit from my boyfriend for a dinner tonight.

    Enjoy Wicked! :)

  9. Have fun at Wicked! I saw it in London. Ohmigod! It’s fantastic.

  10. Erika

    Love the puppy love!
    Today I was desperate to find or MAKE an e/s palette so I went to Hobby Lobby and found a tin pencil holder and depotted all my l’oreal HIP e/s. It turned out great! The lid of the tin has Tinkerbell on it, so cute! The tin cost 1.99 and I was excited to find it that I improvised! Didn’t need to wait to order empty palettes online, or pay the money for them either ;) Hauled an ELF eye blending brush, and two SK eye brushes yesterday..

  11. Lena

    I didn’t haul anything due to IMATS saving and a sizeable haul from a week or two ago, but I love Mellan <3. He sort of reminds me of my lab.

    I always show my dog the pics of Mellan and tell her she needs to be more adventurous and less of a scaredy cat. I love my dog, though; I’d be lost without her.

    I didn’t haul a whole lot this week. I think I’m recovering from the insane amount of hauling I did the two weeks prior to this. The cool thing is that it’s all coming in the mail this week. ^_^

    I’m excited for a relaxing weekend. My weeks are so crazy that I really enjoy being able to sit back and relax a bit. I’m nervous, though, about a talk I give on Sunday. 0_o

    Sorry. Just had a milk panic attack.

    Anyway, Mellan is adorable.
