    Today I am going back to my mac counter to get a couple of the pearlglide eyeliners, and one tendertone, they gave me a sample and a caved, I’m getting one. If could be an animal I would be a pigeon, I saw a special about them in animal planet, they are so misunderstood, but are actually really smart animals.

    Plans: Work, organic chem studying, and hoping to get some personal reading/writing done.

    Animal: Hmm. Probably a housecat. All the luxury and affection a dog receives, minus the expectations for emotional return.

  29. Em

    This weeks’s haul: I decided to try three type of products I’ve never before: MAC’s Sun Rush luster drops, tendertone in Hush Hush, and Butterfly pigments. Love the luster drops and tendertone, but it’s probably going to take me some time to figure pigments out (love the colors though!)

    Weekend Plans: Dog sitting for a friend and I’ve got to finish my 1st TPA (for my teaching credential) and get it ready for submission.

    Animal: When I was younger one of my nicknames was monkey so I’ve always wanted to be one–probably a white faced monkey (they’re adorable).
