  2. Haul: nothing really!

    Weekend plans: just had company last night, probably just relaxing with my husband tonight and tomorrow, then church on Sunday!

    Are you an accessories kind of person?: I like the thought of being one, but I’m far too lazy and cheap. I’d rather spend money on makeup that I’ll rarely use than jewelry or shoes–even though I LOOOOOVE a nice pair of shoes!

    Are you an accessories kind of person? Yes! Go through phased but right now I love watches, husband got me a Michael kors watch for valentines day I’m so excited! :)

  16. Adrienne

    Burberry Trench eyeshadow, I cant tell that its on at all!! which dissapointed me at first. But with a darker crease color it looks polished.

    Weekend plans: I want to celebrate Vday Saturday night instead of during the work week but we’ll see what cupid suprises me with.

    I am in no way into accessorizing; Growing up I’d always been frustrated with my mom because she had to pick out all different jewerly just for one outfit. So I’m one to pick up really solid classic pieces and wear them a lot.

  17. Allie

    I think this is the first time I’ve actually hauled things in time for a FFHF! o:

    CVS – Revlon Colorstay 12HR quads (Berry Bloom, Nude Elements), Plum Colorburst l/s, NYC Skin Tight Denim polish [all from the 75% beauty clearance sale]
    MAC – Call Me Bubbles, Dish It Up, Quick Sizzle, and Watch Me Simmer (although the last three haven’t come yet!)
    Walgreens – Wet N Wild Comfort Zone, I ♥ Matte palettes

    Weekend plans: Catching up with friends, finally taking down my Christmas tree! xDD

    Are you an accessories kind of person?: Not really. If I do wear any, it’s usually either a necklace or a ring. I keep trying to get into it as well, but most of the time I can’t be bothered.

  18. Becca

    haul: 3 tops from Marks and Spencer
    weekend plans: shopping tomorrow in France :) and Chateau de Versailles on Sunday
    accessories? no. not at all. I don’t really own any but occasionally I’ll wear a long necklace… I have a cross necklace, two very simple bracelets and a pair of gold earrings that I wear everyday though, but I wouldn’t call that accessorizing.

  19. Veronica

    Haul: MAC Dish It Up and Innocence, Beware!, NYX Chic Red

    Weekend Plans: Relaxing and hanging out with friends…and getting a head start on my next chapter of organic chem. 😐

    Are you an accessories person?: I try to be, but sometimes my schedule strips me of that extra 10-15 minutes that can help you find just the right thing to go with an outfit. Style is all about the details, so I think they can be a big part of a look. I’ve got a whole drawer of scarves I’d like to pull out more often.

  20. Lynn

    Haul: MAC Shop, Cook – 3 lipsticks: Dish it Up, Quick Sizzle, Naughty Saute. I might pick up more from the collection later.

    Weekend plans: in bed resting up this cold/cough

    Are you an accessories kind of person? on everyday I wear the same pieces. but on special occasions i pile on more stuff.

  21. Esther

    Haul: I finally got a Naked 2! I also got a Boots No7 lip gloss and lip care balm/cream.
    Weekend plans: I came home for a visit this weekend, so I’ll probably be watching tv and cooking with my mom :]
    Are you an accessories kind of person?: sort of. I like bracelets and rings, but I rarely wear them anymore. beanies, however, are my big thing. I’ve got a big stash of them, including some lighter, more open-weave ones to wear when it gets warmer.

  22. Miss J

    Haul: Quick Sizzle and Watch Me Simmer from MAC! I’m excited, but I’ll be honest, I almost didn’t bother with attempting to get them because it felt like such a hassle. I called my MAC right at 9:59:50am. Someone had the exact same idea because I didn’t get through the first time, which made me almost just pass it all up. Purchased the last one of WMS, woohoo! Probably going to order from PRO today for the metal mixing palette and spatula and the Pure White Chromaline. Haven’t made up my mind, yet.

    Weekend plans: Going to reorganize my room/makeup storage.

    Are you an accessories kind of person?: I accessorize more with handbags, shoes, makeup, and nail polish than with anything else. I love jewelry, but I never remember to wear it. I’m also allergic to some metals, so a lot of jewelry will irritate my skin.

    I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!! :) Christine, don’t you just melt when you look at that face of his?! My dog gives that look all the time, and it’s so hard to resist.

  23. Ahhh you’re right, Mellan. I can’t resist you (is this his “mum I want some food/a walk/play time look?)!

    Haul: Guerlain Rouge Automatique in 120 Coque d’Or (I am SOOOOO excited about this one), Revlon Lip Butters in Peach Parfait and Cherry Tart. I’m still waiting for my NARS Paramaribo and Mexican Rose to arrive though. I thought they’d at least get here today but they didn’t. Bummer!

    Weekend plans: Cleaning, grocery-shopping, laundry, working on my blog, chilling :)

    Are you an accessories kind of person? Yup! Scarves are a necessity here for one thing. I don’t own a lot of pieces, but I always wear a necklace and a ring. Used to love earrings but my ears don’t react very well even to silver (weird I know), so I had to stop.

  24. Amber

    Awwwww Mellan makes me smile every week!
