  1. Big haul this week! 2 Lightscapades, Blue Storm, Emerald Dusk, and Acid Orange pigments, and clear gloss (not the lipglass one). Also, I ordered the deep pore heads for my clarisonic, and added a Cake Beauty hand cream to the order to get free shipping.

    Weekend plans: Not a whole lot. Hubby’s out of town, so I think I’ll take the opportunity to clean out my closet. I’ve got so much stuff that I can’t wear any more (50 lbs down!), and it’s in near perfect condition. I’ll probably do that tonight, and drop everything off to a local shelter tomorrow.

    Favourite cuisine: Good question. I am sort of a picky eater, in that I won’t eat stuff unless I know exactly what’s in it. Now that fall is here, I’ve been really into cooking comfort type foods. I’ve had a great time modifying my old recipes to make them more healthy, and have come up with some pretty good dishes.

    Mellan, I know that eye roll!! My parents’ German Shepherd does it to me all the time! She’s a moody girl!
