This week’s Mellan photo…


BarkBox sent Mellan the February box, and here he is trying to figure out what’s
in it!  I actually just subscribed him for six months, because Fab has a deal for
$150 gift certificate for $100 (basically 1/3 off, so I couldn’t resist!).

  1. Haul: My lost NARS order has finally been replaced! Finally laid my paws on Paramaribo and Mexican Rose!

    Weekend plans: Dinner + movie date tomorrow, just chilling on Sunday :)

    What lip product are you wearing right now? NARS Mexican Rose! For some weird reason I feel very happy and comfortable about this super bright color!

    And awww LOOK AT MELLAN!!! You should review BarkBox with some help from him :)

    Haul: Revlon Colorburst lipgloss in Fire and Hot Pink, MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack. Last one for forty days!

    Weekend Plans: DRINKING. Also, organic chemistry lab report + studying for exam. I may not want to combine these two activities.

    What lip product are you wearing right now? Just took it all off for bed, but I wore MAC Violetta to work last night. (You can get away with a lot of fun colors working night shift.)

    OMG why did you have to show me barkbox!!! I wish it was as inexpensive as birchbox. Still may get it for the pups birthday

    • Haha! It’s the only sampling program I’ve ever been interested in! At $17/month for 6 months, it still feels a little more than I’d like to spend, but with the coupon of spending $100 for $150, then it brings down the monthly cost to around $12, which is much more palatable! I figure that’s not so bad and after I see a few more months of boxes, I’ll have a better idea if it’s worth it or not!

    Haul: Chanel Taupe Grise shadow, and my husband brought back from the US for me: Coty Airspun loose powder, Ole Henriksen Truth Revealed Super Creme SPF15 and 2 Real Techniques face brushes. I also got (though this might have been last week – I can’t recall – BE Well Rested “concealer”, LaVanila roller ball, Kiehl’s SPF 50 sunscreen and another of their lip balms, though that was for my daughter – she likes their lip balm and has lost hers)

    Weekend plans: Shoppers Drug Mart has a 20X the points even so I am going to buy (gasping at the thought) Guerlain’s Cruel Gardenia (they still have 3 or 4 in stock); working out at the gym and spending time with hubby, who’s been away golfing for a week, poor fellow!

    Lip product I’m wearing right now: I just got up not too long ago and I’m not working today. I haven’t even washed my face yet so the lip product I’m wearing is the Clarins moisturizing lip balm I put on every night before bed. It really and truly lasts til morning and beyond!

    • Avatar of Mariella Mariella

      Oh, I am one happy camper. I just called the Shopper’s near me that carries Guerlain and they’ve put one of the two remaining Cruel Gardenia highlighters aside for me for tomorrow. So, after whining last week about the insane price (and unjustifiably inflated even more here in Canada), just as I knew I’d do, I am caving and buying it tomorrow!

  22. Haul: Ordered a bunch of Japanese makeup (not going to list them all), mostly Lavshuca and a Kate liner. Also got some Mario Badescu skincare items, Silver Powder and the Special Healing Powder…finally some skin products that deliver results, I will definitely build up my skincare regimen from this line. As for makeup I bought in person I got YSL Glossy Stain in #13 (the one from Nordstrom) and #15 Rose Vinyl, I also got the “new” Cool Guava (or whatever) YSL Sheer Candy…they are a lot for a tinted balm, but I find the color and shine on these lasts longer than normal tinted balms. Also they smell nice haha.

    Plans: Mostly hang out with my son at home (husband will be out of town), I have to send some packages too…nothing too exciting.

    Lip product: Well right at this very moment I am wearing the same thing I put on first thing every morning which is MAC Lip Conditioner in Fuchsia Fix which helps keep my lips smooth first thing in the AM but with some color until after breakfast/tea at work so I don’t waste too much of my real lip product for the day.

    That being said, I think my lip product for the day is going to be YSL Glossy Stain (I keep forgetting the real/full name lol) in #15 Rose Vinyl :) LOVE that stuff.

    • That would be a very fun box, haha! :)

      I liked the box we received for February, but at $17 – not sure yet – am hopeful that we’ll see better boxes in the future. I do love the idea of trying new things, though… when it comes to stuff for Mellan.

    i loved seeing Mellan live!!!!! This was so cute seeing him in action with his bark box lol.

  42. LOLOL OMG that is the cutest video!

    My Willow would have swallowed everything by that point tho. And I’m worried if she got her own box she might start tearing into mine…..she’s part Belgian Malinois, which are used for drug/bomb sniffing dogs–so she has to “inspect” my packages before she lets me take it LOL

    BarkBox….OMG what a cute idea!!!! Yay Mellan!
