  1. Haul: Just went to the MAC Warehouse Sale, but I didn’t get any makeup. All I got were skincare products (all Clinique) and the Perfect Style brush set which features 4 full size brushes (168, 187, 222, 263) =D. I also used the Sephora VIB $20 off $40 coupon to buy a Korres lip set. I’m excited to try the brushes and the lip stuff =D

    Weekend plans: I need to write some blog posts, I’ve been procrastinating.

    What’s on your cheeks: NARS Orgasm

  2. Amber

    That top photo of Mellan is so cool! It looks like he is in a spotlight of sunshine, like a pic in a magazine! I love it!

    This weeks haul: Sephora mailed me a VIB GC for 20$ off, so I bought 2 NARS products I have been lemming – e/s in Daphne and blush in Sex Appeal – cannot wait to get them! Also have been wanting to try Too Faced, so I bought the Pixie Pinups holiday set. I think I really need to branch out and try more brands this coming year, so here goes!

    Weekend plans – work work work! Then off Sunday/Monday – plan to do some holiday shopping/wrapping – Christmas will be here so soon!

    Haul: im so excited to share this! i just bought a whole bunch of urban decay stuff. it’s like an early Christmas! i got XXX Shine Lip Gloss in Love Junkie, Baked and Heatherette; Matte Eyeshadow in Chronic and Cult; Ultraglide Lipgloss in Hustle and Loose Pigment in Protest and Baked.
    And get this: It was only for 48 bucks! Plus i got the November sample which is one of the lip junkie glosses and a Stardust Shadow.

    Weekend plans: I might be going to a little Christmas carnival/parade thing with my bestie!

    Mellan looks so cute! He reminds me of my doggie (a golden) when i put a football helment on him lol it was so funny. . . He actually sat long enough for me to take a good pic too. Gotta love the pups!

    Awwwww! Mellan is so adorable!

    Haul: I got so much stuff in the mail this week, haha. Went a little crazy. Sephora stuff from the VIB sale FINALLY came (after more than two weeks…get it together sephora!) and my box from the UD Thanksgiving sale as well (very fast service considering UD put up a notice to expect delays, and I live in the middle of nowhere). I can’t even remember all the stuff I got, but the highlights were definitely Petit Monstre lipstick and the NARS Junkie beauty in a Box set. 😀

    Weekend plans: Hung out with the boy today and took a very nice long nap, but tomorrow working 6 in the morning till 4 in the afternoon…bummer! Gotta support that make up habit somehow though.

    What’s on your cheeks: Just a smattering of zits, unfortunately. Being a teenage is so hard, hehe. I try to take a break from make up around ‘that time of the month’ so as not to aggravate any acne, buttt it didn’t help this time!

    What’s on your cheeks: Nada! My face is going au naturel today :)

    Btw, Mellan is so adorable! I love the cute little “why me?” faces he makes :p
