    LOL Great pictures of Mellan!

    My haul this week was the new VG Lipglasses, which are awesome. I also ordered a brush roll from Etsy, in a pink/black zebra print.

    I’m excited for a baby shower I’m attending this weekend. A few ladies that I know from the U.S. are coming up for it, and it will be nice to reconnect.

    I’m also excited because I’m going back to school (at 31), which starts Tuesday. However, I’m really nervous about it.

    Friday plans – Nothing! Staying close to the phone waiting to hear from my hubby.

    Have a great weekend everyone!

My haulage for the week included some good drugstore buys: Prestige Total Intensity eyeliner pencils in Fierce Blue, Intense Olive & Daring Green (these are really great for the $$) and Tarte’s “Maureen’s Favorites” boxed set from Sephora, because I really coveted the LE lip stain pencil & cheek stain.

    I bought some Laura Mercier Mascara. I am trying to find a mascara that doesn’t flake into my undereye. Impossible, only if I don’t wear mascara on the bottom. My eyelashes are super long, so maybe that is the problem.

    Friday plans; relax!

    • Hey, as long as the product works, right? :)

        I also got MAC plum dressing e/s as a present – its definitely not one I’d buy myself as its very pink and i’ve a lot of pink in my skintone but i wore it tonight with lilac eyeshadow and it was nice. I also think i could wear it with golds.

    All the goodies I bought last week finally started showing up.

    MAC- Old Gold and Vintage Green pigment. Fab Feline Eyeliners in Blue and Brown. I wish the brown were a little darker or more coppery. Just a little more zing to it.

    Friday plans: celebrating my 3 year relationship

  36. Cute photos! I used to make the dogs their doggie treats myself… Haven’t done it in awhile though. Maybe i’ll whip up a batch this weekend.

    Haul: Finally got to open my stuff from Fabulous Felines (which wasn’t much – 3 lipsticks, 2 liners, 1 blush). Also bought 2 more Lancome shadows (I’ve been in love with their metallic shadows lately) and that blush you reviewed not too long ago Christine. It was funny because I saw it, swatched it, LOVED it, bought it and then said to myself, “I wonder if Christine has seen this, she would love this!” Then I came home and read your glowing review. Funny! Also this week were a few birthday gifts that were pretty cool too :)

    Excited for: Sleeping in on Saturday (hopefully).

    Friday plans: No dinner party this weekend. A friend of mine from southern Oregon is coming to stay but it’ll be a low key kind of relaxing weekend. We did the party on Tuesday (for the birthday, which was on Monday) and I stayed up ALL NIGHT LONG (something I haven’t done in years. Had a blast though! We did a slumber party thing. I think Jay was the only one who actually slumbered though… LOL! When he’s tired, he can just sleep… No matter where. I’ve seen him fall asleep during a Prince concert once. (Cause it was after 11! Come on! What can you expect! It’s bed time!) Hehe :)

    • My mom does it from time to time–they stick SO bad. Dogs love ’em, us humans hold our noses… But honestly, while I’d totally make them myself, we don’t go through treats very quickly since we try to keep Mellan on the lean side.

      I love that you know me so well, Dusty!! It’s totally a me color, LOL. It’s SO gorgeous. Like it almost has a duochrome, but it’s a blush… and made of awesome.

      Sounds like you had a fabulous birthday πŸ˜€

  44. Rae

    Hold it: apple… dumpling? Now, maybe this means something else to other people, but when I think “dumpling,” I think “Chinese perogy-like things.” So, apple-flavoured perogy-like things?!

    *does not compute* *does not compute* *does not compute*

    Oh, and of course —

    Haul: Nada! Still going strong on the no-buy.

  48. jess

    I hauled kittenish lipstick supserslick liquid eyeliner in devices. Also two drugstore concealers. Covergirl simply ageless and maybelline superstay. I also got so rich so pretty nail poliah off ebay because its my favorite color of all time and I lost my first one. I love kittenish its so vampy and dramatic. Superslick eyeliner is bomb but comes off thue corners of my eyes easily. Superstay concealer sucks big time. Wish I could retunr it. Simply ageless is nice and creamy but lacks staying power.

  49. Ludwig

    I hauled a YSL Rouge Volupte Perle from the Fall Collection in Coral Sun and 2 Chanel lipsticks: Rouge Coco in Rose Comete and Rouge Hydrabase in Baby Gold. : ) Christine, I heard they are phasing out the Hydrabase lipsticks since they have launched the Rouge Cocos. Do you know if this is true? Thanks!

      • Kate & Zena

        Go me to say “plotting sheets;” I meant blotting sheets!

        I was just curious because Zena would love those. I’m constantly making sure there’s no ingredients like “garlic,” “tomatoes” or “onions” in dog treats and food. Good for humans, BAAAAAD for dogs.

    Haul: MAC’s Pink lemonade lipgloss. Nothing else beauty wise. I picked up two of those 4-in-1 dresses at Tristan which I am pretty excited about.

    Excited for: A looooong weekend :) Might pick up Burts Bees Rhubarb lipgloss today and something Essie’s new collection (thinking the Green polish I forget the name of).

    Friday plans: Well it’s Saturday now… but Friday was a chill night with a friend. Watched Vicky Christina Barcelona. Gosspied. Ranted about life. Good night.

    Have a great weekend!

    I did lot’s of online shopping last week including the 3 MAC quads, a lip/gloss and Kiehl’s Cleanser and Toner.
    I tried the toner today and it has a pretty nice consistency and leaves my skin in a good condition. I like it.

    I’m not excited for the weekend, because my wisdom tooth hurts like hell. I have to take antibiotics and have to wait for 7 long days before the tooth will be removed. So, I’m loking forward to the next Friday.

    Went to the Napa outlets to my Cosmetics Company store and bought the last of their Mac Naked Honey perfumes ( I got four and my friend got three) and also bought Sean Jean Unforgivable Women perfume as well.
