    Huge haul today – Peacocky has arrived in the UK, and my order was just delivered today!

    I got one lippy – Flaunting It, and rather went mad on the eyeshadows. I feel guilty about the expenditure, but love what I got, which was all but Ego of the Mega Metals eyeshadows. I also managed to get hold of Gulabi lipstick from the Mickey Contractor collection.

    Other purchases this week were Sleek’s “Circus” palette, and their new Molten Metals eyeshadow duo.

    Plans for this weekend – boring as usual. The supermarket will be the highlight.

    What I love to do – bellydance! Great fun, and good for you, too

    Physician’s Formula Happy Booster blush in Natural :) and a Nyx set thingie off of HauteLook yesterday!

    and my doggie is the cutest because she’s a rat terrier and so smart (although a butt). she tries to work out when I exercise in the apartment, tries to sleep under my pajama shirt at night (I find doggy hairs in my bellybutton), and is just a cuddle lover. <3 my Sadie! Mellan is cute too, though, of course!

  68. Sophie

    Haul: Mighty Aphrodite, a few Zoya polishes, and some Qtica treatments
    Weekend plans: Catch up on some much needed sleep!!
    Favorite thing to do: I’m a big gamer!! I also like snuggling up with my cat and doing crossword puzzles 😀

  69. I wanna tell why my Rupert is the cutest, Rupert is a french poodle mixed with maltes, black and some white alsmost silver touches under the ear.
    Also a white spot in front of the chest.

    So why is he the cutest?
    coz he is a big ball of fun! making funny faces when i sneeze, playing rude with me, he is capricious about his food (has to be warm, and tasty), or he wont eat it, he rather plays with chunck of concrete than with pet toys.

    In resume: my dog is the best coz is the best friend someone can have, someone who shares the day with u without judge. and coz his personality is unique, cant be compared with a human.

      Owww, Rupert looks really cute and happy! :) Sounds like he knows what he’s worth! Being picky with the food and all 😀 My grandparents’ dog was like that. She wouldn’t touch it if it was just a plain can of dog food, lol! Sadly she was put to sleep ’cause she got cancer :( But she was the sweetest little thing and had an awesome personality, just like your pup!

    I love your Mellan pictures :). We have a Great Dane named Gandalf (grey) and he always gives us ‘grumpy old man’ looks. Dogs are so funny :).

    This week I got a backup of Enchantee Kissable Lipcolour and a pro pan of Folie shadow. They’re 2 of my new favorite items :).

  71. Kris Cameron

    Haul: Mighty Aphrodite blush and wonder woman lipglass. I was only planning on getting the blush but I went to the launch party and there was booze and I got swept up in the moment! I also bought the chromographic pencil from the champale collection and some weleda skin care that was on clearence at target. OH! And I ordered my clarisonic but I have not received it yet. Can you tell I got paid this week??

    Plans: My father and his wife and two dogs are coming down to spend the weekend with my husband, myself and our two dogs. So I will be laughing a lot at silly dog action and then cleaning up a bunch of hair!

    Favorite things to do: yoga, workout, read, walk my dogs and paint my nails. I’ve been out of commission on the first three for two weeks due to a torn rotator cuff but I just got a cortisone injection so I should be back in business within a few days.

    • Kris Cameron

      I forgot to say that I don’t think Mellan looks mad there I think he looks like he was hitting the doggie ganja while you were swatching. You should be careful doggie ganja is a gateway drug…and he’ll eat all of his kibble in one sitting!

  72. Jess

    He’s so cute! I loveee labs. lol, hes smart, he knows its gonna be bright. My dogs do the same thing. In fact, they won’t even let me go near them with my cell phone camera (I try to trick them but they’re too smart).

  73. Haul: MAC Wonder Woman stuff

    Weekend plans: Working on music, painting the kitchen, getting more Limited Edition album packages together and ready to ship out!
