  1. Haul: My low-buy went out the window. I ordered the Naked2 palette (which I really don’t need, but it looks nicer than Naked1), and 2 of the Jack Black lip balms, based on your rave reviews!

    Weekend plans: Haircut, groceries.. the boring stuff.

    What inspires me: I’m really inspired when I see others do well for themselves. It pushes me to better myself.

    Have a nice weekend everyone!

  2. Haul: I finally received my Beautybay order of Cargo Rome, Cargo Cable Beach, and Macadamia Natural Oil Get Hooked pack! Will to put all of them to test soon :)

    Weekend plans: I should work, but one of my best friends has his birthday lunch on Saturday, another is trying on her wedding dress, and yet another has to drop by and pick up some books. The work prospect isn’t looking so great now eh.

    What inspires you?: Kindness, honesty, courage, and fun! This is pretty elusive lol

    Mellan looks so disapproving tsk tsk (as if he were saying:” no, mom, AGAIN?”)! My tomcat Tango never cares what I’m doing to my face or nails, but my little girl Muffin always comes sniffing around when I put on nail polish, makeup, or watch Youtube tutorials. Weird no?

  3. Erin

    Seeing Mellan pictures always puts a smile on my face. He is beautiful!

  4. Haul: Some crown brushes and some Try size Liz Earle products, still on their way to my house…
    Weekend plans: studying!
    What inspires you?: music, photos, films, the actual mood.

    Haha! My dog makes that very same look when I’m putting on make up or fixing my hair. That look, or she’ll lie down and groan. She always wags her tail at me when I’m done though :)

    I bought a bunch of KORRES goodies with the $30 for $50 you posted! Also, I got two replacement Milani Liquif’eye pencils in Black and Brown (my GO TO EYELINERS!); some Philosophy skincare – Avon eyeshadows – and NYX Winter in Moscow palette on eBay – YAY!!!; SIX (count them, 6!) boxes of my red shade in 10 minute hair color (can’t remember the official name right this sec) at CVS on CLEARANCE for $3 a box (normally $13). Couple of bottles of Love’s Baby Soft on clearance (at 40, I still need this scent in my arsenal) and tonight I’m restocking up on my PUREOLOGY SHAMP AND COND. My hubs got us a $200 refund on an old downpayment with AT&T so I’ve been going a little batty restocking on stff I’ve held off since Xmas! :) PS: Christine, thank you for the Korres hads-up. I’ve never useda lip butter before and ~SWOON~!!!

  11. Kristabelle

    Haul: Too Faced Primed and Poreless face primer- I’m almost out and can’t live without it. Probably picking up an amazonian clay blush, too, but can’t decide what color- Exposed turned out to be too orange on my ghosty skin.
    Weekend plans: working 6:30am-3:30pm pretty much gets rid of those lol.
    What inspires you? in terms of people- Kevyn Aucoin, Kandee Johnson, Scott Barnes, Rae Morris, Megan Martinez, Leesha/xsparkage, Krystaal Rain (makeup). Fiona Apple, Brian Fallon, Morrie Schwartz, Frank Mccourt, Augusten Burroughs, Matt Bellamy, Neil Gaiman (non-makeup). And often just a picture or song. Phew that was long lol.

  12. Carrie Ann

    Haul: From the MAC Naturally collection, I got all three Mineralize Blushes, all four lipsticks, Fresh Air and Hot Spell Lipglasses and Cloudy Afternoon and Twilight Falls Mineralize Eye Shadows. Yep, I really liked this collection. It was right up my alley. I also managed to get a Flamingo lipstick from the Iris Apfel collection and it’s so pretty, I really want a backup. Those lipsticks sold out right away, though.

    Weekend plans: Don’t know yet. I’ll just play it by ear.

    What inspires you? Nature, especially the ocean.

    Haul: St Ives Makeup Remover, Palladio Herbal concealer, Real Techniques powder brush, Palladio face primer, nail polish remover, Ulta eyeshadow in Bone (matte beige), and nothing else I can recall now. It was a “practical” haul, so it didn’t make it to my long-term memory. :-)
    Weekend plans: I might do some volunteer work tomorrow, and visit some friends at Starbucks on Sunday; of course, I have homework too.
    What inspires me: pretty things, selflessness, my pets, some inspiring stories.

    Haul: MAC Mineralized Blush in Early Morning (they were sold out so I ordered online with free shipping; technically, I bought it this week but won’t have it in my hot little hands til next week); if I hadn’t been so keen to get home, I’d have gone to Sephora for Naked2 (that’ll be next week too, now!)

    What inspires me: my children, my family, the students in whose lives I seem to make a difference

  17. Haul: Ordered some MAC PRO stuff… Mostly stuff that I was out of and a couple more brushes. MUFE eyeshadows and a brow set from Anastasia that I saw Sam from Pixiwoo show on their YouTube channel. Now I want more of their stuff! :)

    Weekend plans: My computer crashed late last week and it seems to be much worse than originally thought. This has meant no NOTHING on-line (except for browsing blogs, etc. on the bf’s notebook)! No videos and no WORK (which is driving me – and my clients – a little batsh*t crazy). If I don’t have the computer back tonight it will be Tuesday – Which means I’ll be spending the weekend on my butt shooting zombies on the PS3! LOL!

    I received my MAC order – Sweet Sunrise l/s, Subtle Breeze blush and Aurora pigment. I’m happy with everything although the lipstick is much paler than I expected. Oh well, it is almost my skin colour so it’s a good lip erase!!
