Free for Haul Friday

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul:  7 Jack Black Lip Balms! Gotta keep my cabinet stocked :)  I also bought
  • Weekend plans:  Give Mellan a bath, farmers’ market if it doesn’t rain, do a puzzle
  • What’s your favorite kind of weather?:   I love slightly cloudy skies with the sun still shining, around 80 degrees, with a light breeze.  I also enjoy a crisp autumn day with overcast skies (but no rain), a nip in the wind (but not a bite).

Share your pet photos to the Temptalia Pets flickr group! :)

This week’s Mellan photo…


Mellan helping to put up the tree (at my parents’ house)… as you can, very helpful.

  1. Haul: Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill #14! Har har har. :D

    Weekend plans: I plan to enjoy the lower temperature before it goes up again next week. Freaking Melbourne weather. :/ (We had a temperature jump from 45 to 95 degrees F in less than 48 hours this week >.: I’m photosensitive due to anemia, so unlike many Australians, I’m not solar-powered. :P

  2. Haul: Nothing for me. But I have to be buying presents soon….
    Weekend plans: Homework and applications! Blegh.
    Weather: I love rain. It makes my hair frizzy, but it also makes everything look so cinematic, ha ha. When it’s cold I can justify snuggling my dog half to death :3

  6. Haul: Nothing!

    Weekend plans: Christmas shopping. I usually have it done by now but my parents have NOTHING on their list this year which leave me scrambling for idea. My Mom’s B-day is also on the 29th mines on Christmas day so it make it an expensive time of year in my family as well. lol

    What’s your favorite kind of weather?: The fall and late spring (past the cold rain). The only weather I don’t like is the hot humid summer we get. It’s be nice if it wasn’t SO humid I feel like we are broiling up here. the Dry heat of Florida is wonderful the one time I visited.

    Haul: got my Black Friday/Cyber Monday stuff- Lime Crime lipsticks in Airborne Unicorn and Coquette (never ordering again, they changed the scent and it is FOUL lol) and Sugarpill Chromalusts in Junebug, Stella, and Paperdoll. Stila- Stingray smudgestick, Kitten pan shadow.

    Weekend plans: Work, clean room, maybe get a start on christmas shopping, practice driving for my test.

    What’s your favorite kind of weather?: I don’t like too much of anything…rain is fun sometimes, but so is nice warm weather. Only thing I really hate is the crazy wind we’ve been having in the Bay Area- really sucks when I spent a ton of time outside waiting for the bus.

  10. Haul!! Lipsticks!! Prince Noir, Runaway Red, and Black Knight

    Weekend plans: Stay cozy, work on Sunday.

    Favourite weather is crisp and cool. Late October or thereabouts. I do appreciate all different weather though. Today is wet snow, and slushy, but I got my winter tires put on this morning, so I actually enjoyed driving around in it. Now I’m home and warm, and enjoying a peppermint coffee.. A perfect yucky day.

    Mellan looks like he’s in a bit of a mood about the decorations ;-) I say that because my Parents’ dog rolls up in the same position, and will give us “side eyes” when she’s in a mood.

    Have a great weekend everyone!

UD BoS IV, Inglot 10 palette Freedom System, Sugar Pill palettes and pigments, 2 Bdellium brush sets, Tarte True Blood palette, L’Occitane boxed lotion gift set, Beyonce’s Heat Rush perfume, Milani (bronzer, polishes, lip glosses), Sonia Kashuk brush set, and another Sigma brush.

  17. Melissa

    Haul: CCO haul! Surf the Ocean stack, three superslick liners, and a face primer. I also bought a new wallet because mine was getting pretty grody and embarrassing (I often carry it in a back pocket instead of a purse, which leads to more wear and tear.)

    Weekend plans: Engagement ring shopping tonight, santa parade and looking at lights on Saturday and Sunday will probably be lazy.

    Weather: I crisp, clear late fall mornings, when you can smell burning leaves off in the distance.

    • I just grabbed a new wallet, too! I got one of those wristlets, so I can just grab that instead of my whole purse for Starbucks runs.

      Congratulations, Melissa!

  18. Lynn

    Haul: Origins Brightening Kit, Urban Decay Naked 2, Inglot online (freedom system eyeshadows, blushes, duraline, eyeliner, lip pencil), Revlon Colorburst Lip balm in Berry Smoothie & Peach Parfait (for xmas gifts), and a non-beauty related item: HD digital camera!

    Weekend Plans: decorate the house for Christmas!

    Favorite weather: Not fond of humidity either..I sure love a warm, sunny day, little bit of wind/air, not dry yet still really warm…around 80 degrees:)

    At least Mellan doesn’t walk all over the decorations:) My dog used to do that when she’s “pretending” to help:)

  19. Brigette

    Haul: A Nail polish that was back ordered; Zoya’s Suvi (forest green color) and it’s so pretty, even my son commented on how he liked it (Super Rare Comment!). Three Mahya eyeshadows, Charm, Innocent and Sunset – I’ve been searching for the perfect dark burnt orange but Sunset is similiar to Smashbox’s Torch (light orange) so I’ll keep looking.
    Weekend plans: Nothing really, just work.
    Favorite weather: that soft sunny gentle warm that caresses the skin.

  20. Courtney

    Haul: After searching several department stores across Los Angeles and Las Vegas, I FINALLY found Chanel Dragon! My mom, out of the goodness of her heart treated me to not one…but both of the last two remaining tubes. So sweet of her!

    Favorite weather: Just warm enough to not need a jacket, but still cloudy.

  21. Becca

    Haul: my dad went to London, so I asked him to pick me up something from Sleek and Barry M. I wanted the blushes, but he just picked random things (he was in a hurry) so I got Barry M blush in 7, Barry M silver glitter liquid liner and Sleek palette in Acid (I love it!!!) then I got MAC brow pencil in Lingering and I was going to order the NAKED 2 palette but I forgot and now they’re sold out… :( Next week hopefully :)
    Weekend Plans: my church is having a Christmas banquet next week and the theme is Geek or Chic, so me and my friends are going shopping for our “Geek” costumes. We are also going to get our pictures taken with Santa!!! Super stoked :)
    Favourite kind of weather? I actually really like it when it’s rainy. Not all the time, but I love just being able to curl up with a good book and staying inside :D

  22. Haul: I caved and placed an order on Milani’s website when they were doing 50% off on Cyber Monday. I also almost died when I saw Too Faced on Hautelook and of course placed an order for that too lol

    What’s your favorite kind of weather?: 75 degree day, clear bright blue skies, maybe a stray cloud or two, little bit of a breeze, and just enough humidity to keep it perfectly warm.

  26. Dawn

    This week, in the sales, I got Urban Decay’s Dew Me, their 24/7 brush and Ozone lipliner. Barry M’s Dazzle Dust 58 (Candy), Lip Lacquer Crayon in No2 (the red glittery one – that and no 4, the pink glittery one are pretty much dupes for Urban Decay’s Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Colours in Adrenaline and Big Bang), 3 shimmery Bourjois eyeshadows and Benefit’s Farenheit Fab Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner.

    This weekend, I’m hoping the last parts for my daughter’s computer will arrive, so I can assemble it and get it all set up in time for Christmas.

    I like the weather warm, but not hot, as I can’t bear to be outdoors in the heat, and much prefer to stay indoors keeping out of the sun. I also quite like Autumn weather, but not when it’s wet and windy. I got soaked through coming home from town yesterday

  27. Liz

    When I was little, I had a dog who looked almost exactly like Mellan. So cute!

    Haul: MAC False Lashes Extreme Black, Philosophy Bath Gel in Coconut, as well as the Sephora V.I.B. gift, which had been waiting for me since August! I was so surprised they had it for me when I went in. Lots of goodies! My favorite was the Brazilian Face Peel. Wonderful product, will definitely treat myself to it for Christmas.

  29. Nicole

    Haul: No beauty stuff. But I cleaned my stash and throw away some expired products.
    Weekend plans: Tomorrow I have an appointment with my hair dresser, then I have to do some christmas shopping and then enjoy the rest of my weekend.
    What’s your favorite kind of weather?: I was born in the late fall (It started to snow that day), so I love sunshine. The perfect weather for me is a Jeans and Polo Shirt look (about 20 to 25 °C).

    That’s a lovely picture of Mellan.

  34. Joan

    Haul: iPad2, & case arrived today-Blk Friday purchase from hubby, lip glass & nail polish from Gareth Pugh collection also arrived. We purchased a snow globe from Saratoga Springs during annual Victorian Street Walk to add to my collection. The main street/shopping area is closed to traffic and locals & entertainers are in Victorian garb, there were carolers, free treats of popcorn, cotton candy, hot chocolate & hot mulled cider, matzoh ball soup & pasta. There was live window art and marching bands. The shops & bistros remained open late into the evening. There were lots of pets dressed in winter/holiday finery. Mellan would have fit right in. A good time was had by all.

    Weekend plans: Putting our Christmas tree up and prepping for a cocktail party we’re hosting next weekend. Annually, our neighborhood decks the streets w/luminaries (votive candles in white bags). We have holiday treats and horse drawn carriage rides through the neighborhood to view this magnificent display.

    What’s your favorite kind of weather?: I wasn’t quite mentally ready for the 32 degrees in Saratoga this week. I Prefer spring when it’s mild (70 – 75 degrees) and comfortable enough to laze in the backyard hammock.

  35. bri
