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: Philosophy Trick or Treat Shower Gel Set, Philosophy Caramel Apple Shower Gel, 5x Jack Black Lip Balm, Hourglass Visionaire Eyeshadow

Want to  make time to: read a good book this weekend!

Funniest thing that happened this week:  Mellan must have heard a noise last night, because he started growling like crazy, and when I pushed back the blinds (those long, hanging vertical ones), he started growling more.  I think it might have been at his reflection, LOL.

Friday plans: Going to my parents’ house for dinner — gonna be YUMMY!

This week’s Mellan photo…

I miss puppy Mellan sometimes!  Although he still furrows his brow whenever he’s thinking now!

    Haul: China Glaze For Audrey.
    Slight haul-related rant: I’m considering buying more polishes, and this might happen today (I’m going to buy myself a present for Mikey Way’s birthday? Haha), but I’m kind of annoyed and confused by 8ty8’s shipping policy (“There’s a minimum charge of $7, and you can order up to four polishes” doesn’t really tell me HOW MUCH it’s going to be, person who replied to my e-mail, which I thought was quite clear), but they have two of the ones I want that the other site I looked at doesn’t, and I do not know why this affects me so deeply, but I just needed to rant somewhere? >.<
    Weekend plans: Celebrating Mikey's birthday (today) and the beginning of MCR (tomorrow). In case it wasn't obvious, they're my favorite band and I love them. The popcorn festival tomorrow, followed by a We The Kings concert. I'll probably visit my Sephora ladies in between festival and concert…and somehow resist buying anything.

    • Hmm, I think maybe they weigh them? I think I’ve paid around $20ish for 15 or so bottles if that helps any!

      • leesie

        Well, I think it’s $7 for anything under a pound, and since the shipping weight on China Glaze polishes is 4 ounces, it should just be that, or not much more. Cheaper than getting them from Sally’s, and I think the route I’m going to take, especially since I’ve got my eye on two which are from older collections and which I haven’t seen at Sally’s at all.
        I probably will go ahead and order them, since I’m trying to give my nails more love and attention, and I have a short attention span when it comes to color. From what I’ve read here (both from you and other readers), China Glaze polishes are totally worth it.

  12. Becca

    -Bath & Body Works Cucumber Melon body wash, lotion, and body spray
    -Bath & Body Works Sweet Pea body spray (travel size)
    -Hard Candy Blush in “Pinup”
    -Hard Candy Primer
    -EOS lip balm in Honeydew
    -Eco Tools eyeshadow brush

  13. Michelle

    I also hauled 5 Jack Black balms! I had to go to two different Sephoras to do so, but it was totally worth it.

  14. baby in a corner

    I GOT A ROUGE G! Yeah I got gaela which I realised when I came home has been discontinued! Maybe cause its similar to Georgia which is the one I planned to get but I hate it when companies only have the testers labelled with numbers rather than the names because when I went I got confused and mistakenly bought gaela. I still like it though! I keep taking the case out and playing with it – I feel like a bond girl! The strong scent of it can be off putting though.

    I’ve also got to play with my naked palette, I love toasted – a gorgeous copper colour!

    Have you read the girl with the dragon tattoo? Its brilliant! I’m reading Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann at the moment – its about people’s life who are intertwined in NY.

    • YAYYYYYYYYY! You can leave the cap off the lipstick for a bit and the scent should diffuse somewhat :)

      I have not read it! What is it about?

      • baby in a corner

        Its a thriller/ mystery type of trilogy. Its been in the best sellers here for a while. Set in sweden written by a swedish author, with really kick ass female characters!

        Gaela looks warmer on me than it does in your swatches, but its still a nice colour – probably cause i’ve pigmented lips. I re-read all your posts on rouge gs after i got mine – I dunno why but I love doing this after I get something!

    • CeeBee

      I second the recomendation for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson – I finished the Millenium trilogy a few weeks back (the 2 other books are The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest) and they were very, very good.

      It’s about an investigative journalist (who has just been convicted for libel) who gets involved with a reclusive, antisocial computer hacker who has spent about the last ten years committed to a psychiatric institution (for reasons not disclosed but you do find out in the third book) and she helps him try and solve the mystery disappearance of a young girl who went missing 40 years beforehand. It’s set in Sweden and parts of it are quite brutal and I found it really riveting.
      The first 2 books have been made into movies as well, pretty sure they’re subtitled though(being Swedish).

      Oh, and leaving the cap off a Rouge G for about three days does the trick…

I’m seriously more in love with it than any other lip thing I’ve over gotten. <3 you so much Christine for your constant mentions that have made me go 'Hmmmm'.

    • Haha! Me too… except I wish I could figure out what he’s thinking!

    Haul: MAC Cyndi lipglass, Chanel Soho quad and Stunning lipstick, Les Khaki Brun and Vert, 3 Inglot nail polishes (went to Vegas this week and their new store opened at the Forum. Yay!).

    The funny/weird thing that happened this week was that I went to the Chanel shop at Bellagio and the lady totally lied to me couple days ago and said that the Khaki polishes were sold out on the website. I think she wanted to take down my info to ship to me and make a commission. How strange!

    Mac haul today for me. I bought Nice Vice and Cash Flow paint pots. Knight es and Copperplate es. A blush brush and a 217 brush. Fix +, since the weather is taking a turn, I needed to load up on this! My work place is so dry, I like to keep one at work. A few lipsticks and blush.

  62. Rebecca

    Orly It’s Not Rocket Science and Out of this World, China Glaze Ick-A-Bod-Y and Mummy May I, Garnier rollerball concealer/eye cream

    Making time to play with my new Kindle

    I work in pediatrics so funny things always happen; today a 7 year old told me he was going to sue us because I gave him a shot :)

    Plans: hanging out with my hubby and watching TV after a tiring workweek

    Have a great weekend!

  63. I haven’t gotten a ton of stuff this week, but I did get more MAC Superslick Liquick Eye Liners. I got Nocturnal, On The Hunt and Marked For Glamour. I am lemming Old Gold and Bloodline pigment, but not totally sure yet.

    This weekend I need to return a pair of shoes that I am not feeling anymore….oops, impulse buy! As well, I need to get some rest and put in at least 2 hours at the gym. Yeah, total opposites of each other, but I do need to do both 😉

    Cover Girl – Lash Blast Length and Volume formulas (on sale, time to see what the deal is with these lol)
    UD Pigments from Haute Look FINALLY came in, can’t complain they were only $5 – I got Rockstar, Goddess, Gunmetal, Protest
    China Glaze – Midnight Mission, Riveter Rouge, Liquid Leather
    Essie – Limited addiction, Velvet Voyer, Merino Cool

    I got MAC E/S in Red Brick and a greasepaint stick in Brown, Now. Also set up on the pre-order list for Venomous Villains!

  66. CeeBee

    Haul: ChiChi nailpolishes in Lady of Leisure and Talk The Talk, plus another auomatic eyeliner in Erotica, which is a lovely golden brown, even if it has a stupid name! I also got Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream, The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Lip Butter, a new Jordana lipstick in Soft Rose (the colour reminds me of the Laura Mercier Courtisane stick balm you reviewed recently, maybe a tad more coral/peach but still with that lucious shimmer!) a Rimmel Lasting Finish lipstick in Heavenly and 3 Natio lip pencils which are the BOMB. Thye are SO pigmented and have this amazing texture, almost like a velvety gel but in pencil form. LOVE.

    Make time to: Make hand rolled pizza dough and pack for a three day trip to Auckland on Sunday. (MAC counter, yay!)

    Worst thing that happened this week: A massive earthquake (same magnitude as Haiti) hit Christchurch (NZ’s second largest city) last Saturday morning and there is MASSIVE damage. No one killed though, which is amazing and all my friends are OK and doing well, only one has lost her house completely. :-(

    • I have never heard of ChiChi polishes – how’s the formula?

      I’m so glad that all of your friends & family are doing okay and hope everything gets sorted out soon!

      • CeeBee

        ChiChi is an Australian brand, stocked in a department store here called Farmers – the range is good, about 40 shades and the formula is pretty good, maybe a tiny bit streaky (esp. if you don’t load the brush up with enough product) but it dries fast and doesn’t chip too quickly. Plus it’s $15 a bottle, while OPI and Orly are about $25…

  67. Noelle

    My haul this week:
    China Glaze nail polish in Emerald Fitzgerald
    Lots of Forever 21 jewelry
    Leopard print cardi from Banana Republic

  68. nicci

    Picked up Chanel Khaki Vert and Rose…had Brun on hold as well but passed on it…
    My Soho collection comes on Tuesday! I am so excited :)
    I purchased the quad, lipstick, and laque

  69. Wendy

    This week’s haul was MAC.

    A little late to the party but FF Superslick Eyeliner in DF and TMN, Plum Dressging, Cranbury and Parfait Amour Eyeshadows, and Palace Pedigreed Quad.

    I ADORE the superslick eyeliners because of the color choices and it’s staying power, but I cannot draw a straight or thin line with those to save my butt! I’ve never been a liquid eyeliner girl, but was hoping the felt tip would be easier to use and I use the Too Faced Liquif-eye on a daily basis. But, sadly, it’s not the same and I may return the two eyeliners. But is the Palace Pedireed Quad the most beautiful thing you’ve every seen? LOL I can’t believe I almost passed on the entire collection.

  70. I love fridays because of Mellan’s photos :) He’s so cute!

    Just received a packaging from Strawberrynet. 2 lipglasses (Nymphette and Pink Lemonade)and I’ve got 2 freebies, a Max Factor lipgloss and Stila Stick Foundation (which surprinsingly worked for my skin tone)
    Happy Saturday! x

  71. Kim

    Just The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil treatment and MAC nail lacquer in Concubine. I am back in school now, so my beauty budget is miniscule. Anyway, I would like to save for the new iPod Touch because I am craving for it. For my free time, I will be reading Generation A by Douglas Coupland this weekend, a well known Vancouver writer. For a good read I recommend The Hunger Games and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. I read both and am waiting for the third book, Mockingjay to be available at the local library.
