    Weekend plans: preparing a paper and presentation over the figure of the Victorian actress and hanging out with my kids.

    Last book I read: Super Sad True Love Story, which is quite possibly the best book I’ve read in 2011. It’s an updated version of 1984, and both wickedly funny and eerily plausible.

  5. Nayeli

    Haul: from sephoras friend and family sale I got Dior amber glow, a brush for my clarisonic, too faced holiday palette, nars blush palette, and the Taylor swift perfume gift set, can’t wait to get my order!!!

  7. Adrienne

    Shopping for F &F was fun although I felt bad because it didn’t look like anyone else was getting the discount ( or wasn’t smiling as hard as I was) I wanted to run up and tell ppl to just order online. I got nothing too exciting- sephora paddle brush, sephora comb, jack black balm squad, locctaine hand creme, allnighter spray, Nars powder in Fiji, a small bottle of b&b conditioner, a small bottle of Pacifica cocoa butter lotion. I want to order online and get a guerlain bronzer and touché éclat but I’m prolly going to wait till VIB sale. I also purchased a clarisonic Mia for my sisters birthday; which I’m going to return today b/c she informed me that she prolly wouldn’t use it (gasp). I feel so terrible the SA wrapped it up and everything I’m getting her a pair of hunter rainboots instead for sure will get tons of use outta those.

    Got the Mac 179 b/c I don’t own a kabuki at all; and the manager promised to buy me a brush canister next month when she goes to a pro store b/c I wasn’t too impressed with the roll.

    In a few weeks I plan to replace my almost empty MUFE hd with Armani luminous silk.

  8. Adrienne

    Oh and this weekend going out with my sis for her 21!

    Wow just realized I can’t remember the last book I read; just a lot of textbooks and articles in college; I really don’t like anything fiction so reading random articles on the web satisfys me!

  9. Natalie

    Haul: Some Lush bath bombs, but only a few, since I’m still on a beauty buying diet!

    Weekend plans: Relaxing around the house and probably dinner and a movie

    labels/labelmaker & lastly, MAC’s Carry-all, which matches the MAC brush roll just

    and also, when dogs yawn it means something very different than humans. They use it to show their discomfort about a situation, and also to try to “calm” themselves and whatever is causing them stress. totally opposite of humans, who yawn to show boredom! :)

  29. Paige

    The picture of Mellan yawning is so adorable! I found myself going “Aww…” every time my cat yawned or stretch. She was so adorable and I missed her so so much. (She passed away two months ago and everything that has reminded me of her brings such a bittersweet memory.)

    Anyway, before I start crying again, my Friday Haul:

    - Chanel Rouge Carat polish. I’ve got it in the mail today so I can’t wait to try it.

    - I placed my Sephora’s F&F order last night. I’ve ordered my staples: YSL Faux Cils mascara, Dior DiorShow lash serum, and Clinique Acne Solutions clarifying lotion. I also ordered some new color cosmetics to try: Stila Smudge Stick eye liner in Blue Ribbon and Illamasqua blush in Lover.

    Weekend plans: Preparing for my midterm exam next week.

    The last book I’ve read: Well, if you are asking about the last book I read for fun, it would be “The Cobra Event” by Richard Preston. It’s about a vicious infectious disease outbreak and the main character is a doctor from the CDC who is trying to investigate and find the source of the agent.

    The actual last book I’ve read is “A First Course in Linear Model Theory,” a very dry read for my biostatistics course :P
