    Haul: Guerlain Lingerie de Peau.
    Weekend plans: Enjoy the extended summer over here and head out to the beach!
    Favorite season?: Spring.

  2. Rebecca

    Haul: I bought like five pigments from Sp3ctrum Cosmetics, which I am super excited about!

    Weekend Plans: Going to a play tonight! Mother in Law coming into town today and entertaining her all weekend, hit up the MLK memorial here in DC!

    Favorite Season: Fall, definitely. Something about crisp air, sweaters and boots that just sets my soul ablaze. :)

  3. Arlee

    Christine, you hauled a new collar for Mellan, silly :P

  4. Devi

    Haul: Nothing… it’s always nothing. ;_;

    Weekend plans: Enjoy my 4 day birthday weekend (my birthday was yesterday, and there are no classes today or Monday… my college obviously loves me xD). Oh, and do tons of homework… that actually cancels out the first statement. -_-

    Favorite Season: It depends on the time of the year. xD During summer, I was like “Gah, it’s too hot, fall needs to come,” but now that fall and the cold weather have arrived, I missing the warmth and brightness of summer. :(

    Work that new collar Mellan! Work it!

  5. Haul: MAC Lightscapade FINALLY!!! Got the last one out of 5 mac store in Downtown Toronto when I was there on Saturday. O___o
    Sephora buys: Kat Von D Painted Love Adora (although technically it’s one of the new Foiled Lipstick line), SEPHORA COLLECTION Jumbo Liner 12HR Wear Waterproof in 05 Beige, and PAPERSELF Deer & Butterfly Eyelashes (they were damaged and about to be junked ^_^). Also got my Sephora Birthday Gift early Philosophy’s all in one.

    Weekend plans: Turkey Fest! (aka Canadian Thanks Giving)

    Favorite season?: Fall as well, followed by Spring. Both for the same reason the weather is comfortable not freezing or humidly HOT.

  6. Rikki

    I got so many fun things this wk, i’m so excited!! And I get to go to Mac on Monday as well so even more to look forward to :). Going to a master class at the Pro store !!
    Haul- Urban decay liquid liner in eldarado and siren. Makeup forever liquid liner #16. Mac Lighstcapade, Fleshpot l/s, fabby l/s, blacktrack fluidline (refill!!), blue storm pigment, emerald dusk pigment, three ring e/s!!!

  7. Mandy

    awww Mellan is so cute!

  8. Haul: Do bills count? LOL. No beauty items this week.

    Weekend Plans: I really have to plan out more blog posts. I’m falling behind!

    Fave Season: Fall. I love the 3-holidays-in-a-row deal, and I like getting a break from the heat of summer.

  9. Rose

    Haul: Mac palette refill in Carbon
    Weekend plans: Relaxing on Sat & makeup shoot on Sun
    Favorite season: Summer of course :)

  10. Michelle

    Haul: I got the Julep Maven introductory box. Like the polishes, but dont think I’ll continue the subscription. A bit pricey for a few nail polishes!
    Weekend Plans: Studying, working, studying, and some organization and planning around the house so I have time for MORE STUDYING! :)
    Favorite Season: When I lived in the midwest it was fall or spring, but now that I am in the mountains it is summer. We just haven’t had much of a fall the last few years (hello 3 inches of snow yesterday!)

  11. Lisa

    Haul: Got some things I was unsure about getting, like MAC Nubile paint pot, and Double Feature 5. Essie Power Clutch nail polish (still haven’t worn it though!) But the thing I’m most excited for? The Muppets Palette! Still in complete disbelief that I managed to snag one!

    Weekend Plans: Hang out with the boyfriend and some friends to check out local art galleries. And maybe do some shopping on the way, much to my boyfriend’s chagrin.

    Favorite season: Definitely a tie between Autumn and Winter. I love cold weather and being able to wear awesome coats, drink hot cocoa, etc. Unfortunately autumn in south central Texas is only slightly less hot than summer like 80 or 90 degrees instead of over 100. :( It doesn’t start to get cool until at least mid-November.

  12. Haul: Finally found Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette at my Wal-Mart. At last, it’s in Canada!

    Weekend Plans: It’s a long weekend because it’s Thanksgiving here in Canada. I guess it’s because the holiday’s supposed to coincide with the start of winter, and it’s already pretty cold here. After our Thanksgiving, though, we don’t have Black Friday, but we do have Boxing Day right after Christmas to shop. Hope to show our Japanese student what a turkey is, since there are no turkeys in Japan.

    Favorite season? Definitely summer. As much as I like a good snowfall as everyone else, I just hate the cold in general.

  13. Wendy

    Haul: nothing, but am going shopping tomorrow!

    Weekend plans: shopping with friends, relax, cook in my new kitchen…

    Favorite season: winter. Christmas, hot chocolate, candles. Need I say more?

  14. Haul: I’ve placed an order for some Zoya polishes–getting another bottle of Phoebe (I love this shade! I wear it in tribute to the video game Portal, because it looks so much like the blue portals), Holly, Noel, Freja, Pandora and Laney (I have an addiction to Zoya!), and am waiting to place an order from Morgana Cryptoria, when she releases pictures of the new lipstick shades. This is a haul-in-waiting :)

    Weekend Plans: Conquering the spider-laden wild that is my backyard, and fixing the fence so that my Shar-Pei/Lab mix stops escaping!

    Favorite season: Fall! Winter as a close second. The heat in Spring and Summer down here in Georgia is just unbearable and ruins those seasons for me. I love the scents and colors that come with Fall (and the break from the oppressive heat) but Yule is my absolute favorite time of year!

    (Wow…this was wordy, LOL.)

  15. Dawn

    This week Fall Colour Collection, Posh Paradise, Art of Powder and Seasonally Supreme all landed in the UK. It has been an expensive time.

    Three Ring Yellow, Blue Candy and Royale eyeshadows

    I also bought Barry M’s new purple shatter nail polish and Hard Candy Glossaholic in Fireball, and I finally got MAC’s Jealousy Wakes and Hocus Pocus eyeshadows via ebay.

    I’m hoping for a quiet weekend, if that’s at all possible with my kids lol.

  16. Rainy

    Haul: Nothing yet. I am planning on running to Sephora/Ulta/Sally’s this afternoon though.

    Weekend plans: Little cousin’s birthday tomorrow, Bio test/Lit essay/NFL-zombie mode on Sunday.

    Favorite season: Spring/Fall. I combined them into one season, because this year we really didn’t get much of a spring (except for all the rain). Gotta love crazy Chicago weather.

  17. Mimi Nguyen

    haul: katie b mineral liquid foundation (amazing!)
    weekend plans: work, late night conversations and hot tea =, pack for my week to dallas for more shopping and hauling

Oh and also ordered some china glaze nail polishes. Now attempting to go on a no-makeup, or the bf will kill me.

    Weekend Plans: lots of reading for my classes and taking a preemptive strike against this cold i feel coming on.

    Favorite season: FALL, finally live in a place where the leaves change colors and the seasons are actually disntiguishable.

  20. Faye

    Haul: I had a bit of a spend in Lush this week, I bought the small sized bottles of Snow Fairy shower gel, Glogg shower gel and I Love Juicy shampoo. I ADORE Juicy! I also got their new Chilli Tingle and Celebrate Lip Tints. They’re both pretty awesome but mainly for evening wear rather than daytime.

    Weekend plans: Working 845-1315 Saturday, afternoon and evening hopefully spending a few hours with my bf, otherwise getting on with house cleaning and tidying and playing Sims 3 while watching trashy TV! Sunday morning meeting my two closest girl friends for coffee at about 11 for a few hours, LOTS of catching up to do, and then meeting up with some family and an Auntie who normally lives overseas in the coffee shop for a chat. Sunday night trying to get everything organised for the next week.

    Favorite season?: Winter, I love the rain, the snow, the icy cold weather. I love wrapping up warm and being able to wear more makeup than a sheer summer look. I love the run up to Christmas, even though this year will be the first anniversary of my mum’s death so it won’t be a fully happy time.

  21. Elle

    Haul: Philosophy Shower for the Cure and Bath and Body Works Candles!
    Weekend plans: SEC Football and some paperwork for my job

    Weekend plans: It’s Thanksgiving in Canada this weekend so…youngest is coming home from uni, we’re going to the Rockton Fair, I’m going shopping (need some new work clothes very, very much); working out with my trainer and then undoing all that work with a big family Thanksgiving dinner.

    Favourite season: Fall, absolutely (though in S. Ont. we often segue from summer heatwave to winter wonderland with maybe 5 minutes of autumn so if you blink you might miss it!)

  23. Laura

    Haul: Umm…far too much. All the Paint Pots from Posh Paradise, Naked Bliss and Eden Rouge mattenes, Plum Bright lipstick, Angel Flame quad and Ash Violet fluidline from Fall Color, and Hipster lipstick from someone on LJ. I also ordered, but haven’t yet received, Legendary and Potent Fig mattenes, a back-up of Avenue fluidline, and Legendary Black and Keep Your Cool eyeshadows! Yikes.

    Weekend plans: going to a wedding reception on Saturday and going to visit my aunt in hospital on Sunday. Also need to do a LOT of housework!

    Favourite season: Autumn all the way! I love the crisp, cold weather, the way the air smells, the crunchy leaves, the colours of the trees, Halloween and Bonfire Night, smoky eyes and vampy lips…everything!

  24. Hard choice love the weather in spring and fall – but fall is a beautiful outdoor experiance and who doesn’t love the colors…

  26. SuzInQueenCity

    Haul: Just a refill on my Estee Lauder Splash Away Cleanser. Since my husband needed more of the daywear creme I qualified for the gift with purchase. Most of it is dups of what I already have but the Passion Fruit lipstick is a very nice shade to add to my arsenal.
    Weekend Plans: Moving a bunch of junk from the closet to the attic… romantic, I know. Then tailgating for the Charlotte Panthers football game on Sunday.

    Mellan looks like an adorable yuppie puppy in his new collar! Love it!

    Weekend plans: Actually have several gigs! There’s a bi-annual art festival this weekend and I’ll be doing burlesque makeup and some of what I’m calling “distopian circus” looks on performers. I’m getting to do some split looks with regular makeup and invisable UV makeup on top for some cool lighting switches on stage… Which I’m excited about! Saturday night I’ll be backstage (and “frontstage” lol) at a show shooting people… With my camera! (wakka wakka)

    Favorite season?: Summer!!! Summer is SO fleeting here in the Pacific Northwest. When it’s here it’s beautiful though – We get SO much rain the rest of the year that when the sun does come out it’s a sea bright, crisp greens EVERYWHERE you look.

    Still though… I could do with a little less grey skies :_(

    This week, I got a Stila smudge pot in Kitten and Dior Shimmer Star in Rose Diamond. (I have Amber already and love it!) Today, I was chatting with my friend at the Lancome counter when I spotted the Golden Hat highlighter… it was gorgeous so I impulsively got it too!

    Season: Fall for sure, I love that it’s a little nippy because I hate the heat…I am not too fond of the cold either though which is why Fall is #1! Although I do love the holidays (and my birthday) in Winter! Spring is my second favorite for the same reason, it’s just mild, no real extremes.

  39. Heather

    I hauled in some Fresh and Philosophy products from Sephora. Trying to keep it minimal until the F&F sale but I had a vib code to use plus they had some decent point perks and samples this time around.

    Nothing much going on for the weekend, I tend to play it ear.

    My favorite season is Fall, love it when the leaves start changing colors. Plus I tend to favor fall clothes and makeup over summer ones since the tones just flatter me more! :)
