    • Niki

      Why is Mellon wearing a lifejacket in the pool?

        • La Boule ( pseudo)

          Mellan is so lovely! these dogs are good swimmers aren’t they? I remember that my dad used to have a friend whose dog always “rescued” anybody who tried to swim in their swimming pool! if you wanted to enjoy the pool you had to let the dog closed inside the house! I don’t have this kind of problem with my cats … ( but they love playing with the water when I take a bath!)
          Have a wonderful week end

          • Yep, they are! They have webbed toes and an otter-like tail all to help them swim better 😀

            Since most of the time when he swims, nobody else is in the pool with him, I keep a life jacket on him just in case. Someone is always out there to watch him swim no matter what, but it helps with peace of mind!

            • La Boule ( pseudo)

              I can understand that!
              I would like to say thank you for the wonderful job you’re doing on this blog. I live in France and you sometimes present some make up that we’ll discover 3 or 4 months later ( or some brands that we don’t have here yet) but it’s fun: it makes me feel like a kid at christmas! your pictures are very very good, the colors are really similar to real colors , we really can imagine how the box or the mipstick is and you have such a wonderful smile! Keep going like that, it’s a real pleasure for me to visit your blog every day .

    Mascara you cant live without: The Tarte Lights Camera Lashes

  34. Carolina

    I gotta be honest, I only look at Free for Haul Fridays for the Mellanator pictures. :) I wish our dog would take to water like he does. BTW, what is he wearing? I can see its a vest with a handle (useful that!), but is it just for ease of grip?

    • When Mellan was a puppy, every time we went to my parents’ house (which is where the pool is), I’d make him go swimming. He didn’t like it at first, but now I can’t get him out of the pool!

      It’s a doggy life jacket! :) The handle does assist in forcing him out though, haha!

  35. Lauren

    Haul: Deborah Lippmann “Get Nailed” set, some things from Surf Baby: Surf USA eyeshadow, Blue Noon eyeliner, Surf the Ocean pigment stack.
    Weekend plans: Road Trip!!!
    Mascara: I have several that I alternate between, but I’m really loving Smashbox Hyperlash right now. It’s perfect!

  36. Lee

    Haul: Sun Blonde and Bust Out should be coming in today!

    Weekend plans: I really need to sort my clothes and discard ruthlessly. Basic house stuff mostly.

    Mascara you can’t live without: Max Factor 2000 Calorie in Auburn. Which they don’t make anymore but I’d stocked up on ebay when it was discontinued. I’m hoping there will be a new good Auburn mascara when I run out, I’m a very pale redhead and even brown mascara looks too harsh for daytime wear.

  37. Nikki

    Haul: Too faced Primed and Poreless, Bare minerals well rested, Korres lip butter in guava, and some joico kpak hair products.

    Weekend plans: my son is sick so we will probably just hang out and watch movies and I will probably clean like a maniac- I have a baby due the beginning of June!

    Mascara I can’t live without: Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

  40. Liz Mc

    Haul: Surf Baby Strange Potion, Good Lovin’, Naturally Eccentric, Swell Baby, Short Shorts, and Surf USA. I like most of it, still figuring out how to handle N.E and Short shorts.

    Weekend: visiting with an old friend, putting my garden in, cleaning the house.

    Mascara: I have good long black lashes, so I can get away with not using it. But I really like Cliniques extreme something or other and Smashbox Bionic Violet. And I’m digging the Wonder Woman colored mascaras, they show up well even on black lashes.

    This week, I got a bunch of Rimmel Colour Mousse 8Hr as they are what I believe MAC’s Big Bounce shadows were intended to be, only they’re much better and they work! I got Sassy, Splash, Mermaid, Galaxy and Snow Queen.

    I also got much the same thing but in a tube from No7, in Sky and Vanilla.

    Today I got No7 Liplicious glosses in Purple Liquorice and Sweet Peaches, and their limited edition lipgloss in Sultry Red. I also got a whole bunch of Ruby & Millie makeup brushes, sponges, tweezers, nail files and eyelash curlers as they are currently 75% off in Boots as they are discontinuing Ruby & Millie.

    In the 10% off sale in House Of Fraser, I got Urban Decay Pore Perfecting Primer, UDPP in Greed (new type tube) and Ecstasy eyeshadow.

    Oh, and MAC Select Sheer loose powder in NW15, as I have finally found out my MAC foundation colour thanks to the kind man at Customer Services sending me a couple of samples of Studio Sculpt (I have no MAC counter or store locally).

    It’s now the start of half term holidays, so I am looking forward to spending the week with my kids, although knowing them they’ll sleep through most of it LOL.

    Mascara I can’t live without? I have tried all sorts, but keep coming back to No7 360 lash – it’s one of the few that don’t seem to flake on me, and my eye makeup remover has no difficulties with it.

  53. Rosie

    Haul: Revlon Colorstay (2 bottles, BOGO sale), MAC Surf Baby Sun Blonde (last one at Nordstrom, woo hoo!) and Surf USA, Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel, and though I did not partake in the $1.20 NYX sale I did partake in the 50% off sale and got my stuff yesterday.

    Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone!!

    Omg Christine!! I got a puppy last weekend!! He’s a rottweiler lab mix! We got him from the SPCA at 6 months old :)) he’s so sweet and calm but playful!

    I saw on FormSpring that you buy EVO pet food. I asked my pet store and they don’t carry that brand ;( where do you get your pet food? And what does Mellan do all day? I feel bad that Gogi (Korean for “meat” xP) only goes out 3 times a day and the park once a day. He lays around so much :( is that okay?

    This is my Gogi×61 ^__^

    • Hi Joyce,

      Here is a link, and you can check out if there are any locations near you that sell it:

      I did not feed him EVO until a year and half or so, because larger breeds are still growing for longer – I fed Innova Large Breed Puppy (also owned by Natura, same company as EVO) for 18 months and then switched him to EVO Herring & Salmon. I feed Mellan about 2 cups of food per day (remember to look at kcal/cup and what your dog needs) now that he’s full grown. I get mine at a local pet supplies store, and I know it’s usually carried at local stores vs. stores like Petsmart.

      Mellan gets his walks and we play around with him at home, but he sleeps a lot, too. Most dogs that I know do enjoy a good nap :)
