    HAUL: I took my $20 Sephora coupon and purchased Fresh Black Tea Face Cream for my mom for XMAS. The reviews were pretty good, and it felt quite nice when I tested it. $110 CAD for a face cream is an expensive habit, though! Sorry, Mom!

    What’s on my Eyes: The better question is what’s under my eyes? My eyes are leaking like crazy and my Plushlash does not fare well with colds. I look like a raccoon.

    My kitty is on a diet and has lost 2 lbs! From 19 to 17! He can climb things again and jog a little! Small victories. Word to the wise, if your kitty or doggy kibble has corn products in it and too much filler, you’re digging your loved one an early grave. Read labels! :(

    Weekend Plans: Playing video games and helping husband prepare for a last-minute business trip.

    What’s on my eyes: It’s actually a slight modification of a look you did, Christine! I have Retrospeck and Bobbi Brown Metallic eye shadow in Pewter on the lid (to replace the original UD Maui Wowie), MAC Patina in the crease, and UD Mushroom to darken the crease. I love this look and wear it all the time! One of my go-to standards!
