Free for Haul Friday

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul: A few things from MAC Baking Beauties to give away on the blog! :) I also bought Essie’s Resort collection in the mini sizes.
  • Weekend plans:  Clean! Mellan’s been shedding like crazy (as in, worse than usual, which is always bad), so I need to up the vacuuming frequency for all the areas he occupies (mostly my office).
  • Are you a thrill seeker?:  Totally not.  It just hasn’t appealed to me!

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

This week’s Mellan photo/video…


First experience with celery…

    AW Mellan is trying to eat healthy :)

    ■Haul: 2 of the In Extra Dimension Skinfinishes, Pink Nouveau lipstick,Silly Lipglass, and Smoky Mauve Eyeshadow. Looking to buying a new moisturizer for my spring skincare routine.

    ■Weekend plans: A work dinner tonight and live music with my friends on tomorrow night.

    ■Are you a thrill seeker?: Nope, not at all. Too much anxiety for all of that LOL

    Haul: got the double definition last night. Got a friend at MAC that reserved it! Yay

    Btw Christine: how do the giveaways work? I’m new to your blog ;p

    Weekend: saturday im working on a nail polish rack im building… And i got a spring BBQ on sunday

    Are you a thrill seeker: YES! I go off-roading w my jeep club, I skydive, kayak, raft, snowboard,zip line, run, hike, rock climb….. My mother is forbidden off my you tube channel…

    • Hi Emma!

      Giveaways have rules for each one, but they’re about the same – just some giveaways are open to everyone and a few will be restricted to U.S. only (it usually depends on who’s doing the shipping – brand = U.S., me = anywhere) – and then you enter through the various ways (or just once).

    Haul: Tarte cheek stain in “awakening” (Yayyy!) and Tarte waterproof concealer. Both are fantastic!

    Weekend Plans: Business as usual. Cleaning, quiet time with my boyfriend, games with friends.

    Thrill Seeker: A part of me is, but a bigger part of me is nervous and introverted. Thrills, maybe. Risk, no. I could probably stand to spend more time out of my comfort zone.

    This was a SERIOUS haul week! I got MAC Definitely Defined, all of the Hayley Williams collection (except the polish), all of the Baking Beauties lipsticks except Devil’s Food and both Pearlmattes. Now time to stop buying things for a few months.

    Weekend plans include homework, laundry, and other not so fun things I’ve been too tired to do after work.

    I’m not a thrill seeker at all! Unless we’re talking food. Love trying new foods, especially spicy stuff. But I don’t really care for driving fast, roller coasters, or even horror movies.

  5. Haul: found the Smashbox pro eyes palette from the holidays on sale at Nordstrom Rack, Sigma Beauty Mr Bunny travel brush set, a bunch of stuff from the Nyx sale going on at Ulta, a new beauty blender, Soap and Glory The Righteous Butter, and Fresh Sugar Lychee body wash. Whew!

    Weekend Plans: Atlanta Steeplechase this weekend! Bring on the big hats and mint juleps.

    Thrill seeker?: nothing is a greater thrill to me than getting a great deal on something so YES! lol

    What did he think of celery? This totally should have been a video!

    • Maybe I will do it another time!

      He doesn’t spit it out or anything – he will eat the whole thing, and he did eat the other two stalks I gave him on later dates. I don’t know if I’d say like… best treat ever, but he does seem to like it!

  7. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Dee GUSnail

    Haul: Nothing yet, but I plan on getting a TM from Sephora this weekend (maybe BB Oil Free)

    Weekend plans: Cleaning and getting my haircolor retouched.

    Are you a thrill seeker?: I used to be-I’ve even been skydiving, which was awesome. But since becoming a mom, I’m less likely to take risks.

  8. Loved all your posts this week! :)

  9. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Mirian Vermeulen Mirian

    haul: I went to NYC and IMATS last weekend…20 pan inglot palette (1st row: 349, 312, 342, 344, 419 2nd row: 444, 608, 155, 399, 56 3rd row: 348, 335, 11, 12, 422 4th row: 63, 327, 08, 452, 414), Hourglass ambient lighting powder in diffused light, Tom Ford eye shadow quads in Emerald Lust, Golden Mink, and Silvered Topaz, Tom Ford lipsticks in Indian Rose and Flamingo, Burberry blush in Blossom and lipstick in Cameo Pink, dermalogic hydrating face mask, three liberty republic lashes, 4 ardell lash sets, 13 different Royal and langnickel SILK brushes, and HAKUHODO BRUSHES (j104, j210, g5545, j146 (x2), j282g (x2), j163h (x2), j5523 (x3)). Geeeez also lots of Tom Ford perfume samples and diptyque as well. I went a little over budget. Just…a little.

    weekend plans: See my mom for lunch and de-shed the husky!

    Thrill seeker?: Hmmm i dunno. I like being adventurous while being cautious. I’ve done some questionable things like jump off a 200m cliff tied only to a rope somewhere in south africa, but then I heard a woman died a year later doing the same thing. Now I do rollercoasters and that’s about it.

  10. LoL at Mellan eating celery! We frequently feed our pack bits of vegetables and fruit too. They help themselves during the summer months to the vegetable garden with beans/peas/carrots and mini watermelons! being their favourites.

    ♞ Haul: two Givenchy Le Rouge lipsticks in the leather case. Terrific rich formula.

    ♞ Weekend Plans: nothing special. Weekends do not exist here.

    ♞ Thrill Seeker: I used to be before I became ill. My brother would lecture me constantly on my apparent ‘death wish’.. I miss my old self sometimes and wouldn’t dream of pulling half the stuff I used to pull on horseback, skiing, snowmobiles, ATV’s etc.. I’ll never say I was fearless, but I enjoyed getting into trouble.

    • What veggies to think are best to feed them? Shaun wants to try planing tomatoes but worries Mellan will eat them!

      • Our dogs were not big on the two types of tomatoes we grew and never touched them. I thought they might get into the cherry tomatoes due to their more convenient size, but they completely passed on by. The peas on the other hand.. OMG, it was impossible to keep them out and the sweet corn..we barely had any for ourselves!

  11. Nichole

    Okay…This is adorable. All of your Mellan pics are cute, but this one reminds me of my yorkie eating a green bean. I’ll have to try celery.

    Mellan’s thinking, “man, this would be better with bacon grease”.

  12. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Anne Anne

    Haul: Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Mandarin, off ebay. I’m actually wearing it right now, and I love it big time. The colour is incredibly flattering on me- this might just be a new holy grail. I’m still wondering why Chanel decided to discontinue such amazing products- could it be the tiny size that deterred people?

    Weekend plans: Work, as always.

    Are you a thrill seeker?: not really. I’m very careful in my everyday life. I do enjoy roller coasters though. That doesn’t scare me one bit!

  13. Haul:
    – Collection 2000 concealer in light
    – Natural Collection Lipstick in Rose Petal
    – 17 Lipstick in Hawaii Pink

    Plans:
    Ugh, probably working. Major projects everywhere.

    Thrill Seeking?:
    Noooope. I am lazy haha. Thrill seeking looks like work.

  14. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of KaseyCannuck KaseyCannuck

    Haul: The Paramore Collection because my daughter loves the group and now she can have some MAC goodies of her own. I passed on Lightscapade though because I already have one. She totally rocks the orange lipstick!!

    Weekend plans: None!

    Are you a thrill seeker?: No, emphatically NO!! Biggest chicken ever!!!

  15. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Cat Cat G

    Haul: Mary-Lou Manizer, ‘Nude Tude eyeshadow Palette, ShadyLady Vol 2 eyeshadow palette and FratBoy shadow / blush! Unfortunately I won’t it until May!
    Weekend plans: Writing many papers.
    Are you a thrill seeker?: Definitely not. I’m a very cautious person :P

  16. Haul:
    Guess who used her VIB Chic Week discount? =3

    Sephora Collection The Sculptor Makeup Sponge
    Sephora Collection Pro Allover Powder Brush #61
    First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream (Travel size)
    Sephora Jasmine Collection A Whole New World Perfumed Oil Rollerball

    Weekend plans:
    My niece and nephew are visiting. Gotta hide the electronics again!

    Are you a thrill seeker?:
    You mean things like roller coasters, cliff jumping, and zip lining? Then yes, totally.

  17. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Sulee sue

    Have you tried putting a pump of fish oil on your dog’s food? It’s supposed to help with shedding.

  18. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Mar A. Mar

    Haul: Illamasqua Nomad, Hare Polish in Pegasus and Thierry Mugler Angel!

    Weekend Plan: It’s my daughter’s birthday and I want to make this weekend the best for her. She is 6 today! Going to my parent’s house for lunch tomorrow. My grandparent’s always send her money so I’ll take her shopping today or tomorrow and just let her go nuts in the toy section.

    Are you a thrill seeker? I’m not someone always looking for the next adrenaline rush. I’m not skydiving (though I’d try anything once). But I spent a few years trying to see the world. Moving to places I’d never been before. And I’m not sure that counts as thrill seeking so much as early adulthood recklessness. But I wouldn’t trade away the feeling of getting on a plane to some other country because the idea came to me two weeks before. It was worth stalling on a career. And the cultural and life experiences still show up in my writing. My version of thrill seeking.

    • I’d say that’s adventurous – maybe not thrill seeking – but adventurous, brave. :)

    • VickyM

      Moving around different places to see the world, that is my dream, I hope I can make it come true :D , I admire that.

    • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Veronica Veronic

      That sounds like a real adventure. I had a couple friends who hopped throughout Europe in their post-college before moving back to settle in the States, and they all loved the experience. It’s a experience worth going for if you have the opportunity available. :)

  19. Haul: Dior Spring Ball Addict Extreme and Gel Coat! A makeup angel also ordered a new Edward Bess Blush Extraordinaire (Secret Affair) and Island Blossom lipstick for me during Sephora Chic Week ;)

    Weekend plans: Clean!!! Same shedding problem here, and the house needs some thorough cleaning anyways :)

    Are you a thrill seeker? Oh no. I’m a wimp. I want to keep my feet on the ground and stay safe LOL

    So cute! Does he like celery?

  21. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Amber Amber

    This weeks haul – it was an epic week for me! I hauled from Nordstrom to fulfill some lemmings and get the big beauty gift.
    NARS Blush , Sex Appeal
    NARS Satin lip pencil, Luxembourg
    MAC Blot powder, light
    MAC Viva Glam Nicki l/g
    MAC Minerlize Rich l/s Lady At Play
    Clarins Prodige l/g Grenadine

    Tarte Awaken Your Complexion/Fair
    Sephora collection Pro tapered foundation brush
    Anastasia Brow powder in Ash Blonde
    WHEW!
    Weekend plans: playing with my new pretties! Also my BFF comes home from her trip so hopefully i will see her!

    Am I a thrill seeker? sometimes. i’m weird. I have been bungee jumping and would do it again in a heartbeat!

  22. adele

    Haul:
    Bobbi Brown Stick Foundation – this stuff is awesome because I don’t need coverage all over my face and it’s so easy to spot cover redness and blend out, it’s also the only foundation I’ve found to match my skin tone perfectly, her colour range is awesome for paler girls (almost everything I’ve ever tried in lighter shades has really pink undertones which doesn’t work at all with my colouring)
    BareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow Quad in ‘The Happy Place’ – awesome formula, wearable everyday colours with a bit of a pop, I’ve never been disappointed with anything I’ve purchased from this line
    Benefit Sun Beam – I’ve almost run out of my Moon Beam so I thought I’d pick up this one for summer, it’s easy to get a dewy look without going overboard with these products
    Tarte 12 Hour Amazonian Clay Blusher in ‘Natural Beauty’ – this looks totally scary in the pan but when the lady at Sephora applied it on me I was shocked at how amazing it looked on, applied lightly it looks like the perfect natural flush
    MUFE Smoky Lash Mascara – ran out of my DiorShow Blackout and thought I’d go back to this highschool favourite, gives lots of drama and doesn’t smudge on me throughout the day, I may actually prefer it to the DiorShow (which I’ve been using for 3 years now)

    Weekend Plans:
    Working and hopefully finishing up some artwork I’ve been neglecting for a while if I get the time

    Are you a thrill seeker?:
    In real life, no, but I do enjoy a good escapist thrill through movies and books.

    awww what a cutie he is! i just want to cuddle with him

    Weekend plans: Homework and reading, plus I have to work on Sunday.

    Are you a thrill seeker?: A small part of me is. I tend to become one when I am around my adventurous friends. But I never do anything dangerous or stupid.

  25. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Julie Julie

    MAC HAUL: Sounds Like Noise (x2), Raspberry Swirl (x2), Lavender Whip lipsticks, Blazing Haute blush, both Baking Beauties PM powders, Daydreaming eyeshadow. Between that and Fashion Sets I AM BROKE!

    weekend plans-boating with our tube
    thrill seeker-hardly-I’m a complete safety nut-especially where my kids are concerned

  27. Miranda

    Haul: All of Zoya’s pixie nail polish for summer!!
    weekend plans: Enjoying QT time with hubby who travels all week.
    thrill seeker: Just a very tame one, nothing to crazy. (like the food comment someone left~~ sounds like me!)

  28. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of tzwiggy t_zwiggy

    Haul: MAC Blazing Haute, Fiery Impact, At Dusk and Flaming Chic Extra Dimension blushes. Guerlain Terracotta Four Seasons Bronzer in 00 Nude, Kevyn Aucoin Myracle blush, Burberry Cameo blush, Burberry Mulberry eyeshadow, Burberry Porcelain eyeshadow

    Weekend plans: No plans yet!

    Are you a thrill seeker?: Not really, I think I’m just too lazy. I would love to do things like skydiving and bungee jumping, but it requires too much planning which really seems like a hassle.

  29. Yellowlantern

    Haul: Skincare from Sephora with the chic week sale.

    Weekend Plans: Sadly nothing. Wanted to hang out with the SO but he has to work over time all weekend.

    Are you a thrill seeker?: Not really.

  30. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Gretchen oh.no.pepper

    Haul: I went a little crazy to get the Nordstrom Spring Gift and ended up ordering some things that have been on my wish list for a long time: Guerlain ‘Kiss Kiss Strass'(Rose Perle), Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask and Energizing Cream, Shiseido ‘The Makeup’ Creamy Eyeliner in black, and Yves Saint Laurent ‘La Laque Couture’ Nail Lacque in Vert D’orient.
    Weekend plans: I am obsessed with finding a good neutral colored eyeshadow palette and I have been obsessively looking through this fantastic website for ideas. It’s time for action and a trip to the mall. (Thanks for all the ideas Christine, I have a pretty solid list).
    Are you a thrill seeker?: No. I’m far to paranoid and have a sometime gruesome imagination.

    • Ooh! I’m dying to hear what palette you end up getting!

      • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Gretchen oh.no.pepper

        Well, since you asked, I saw that the Guerlain palettes generally get excellent reviews and I love the packaging so I bought Les Fumes and Les Verts palettes (granted not very “neutral”). TheBalm’s Shady Palatte #2 and Nuditude Palatte. Your reviews were such great help, I’m glad I didn’t go the UD “Naked” Palatte route.

  31. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Leticia Leticia

    Haul: Lancome Effacernes Concealer and Blueberry Love Eyeshadow

    Weekend plans: Housework, mainly laundry and ironing (I hate ironing!) and hopefully get my hair done!

    I didn’t know Labs shed so much – I’ve also had to increase the cleaning frequency of the house with my Kasumi! I guess they are shedding their Winter fur.

    Are you a thrill seeker? Not really – not even a ride in a roller coaster appeals to me!

    Mellan is so concentrated on that celery piece…I bet he liked the crunchy feel :)!

  32. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Shea Shea

    Haul: L’Oreal Infallible Shadow in Golden Sage. I couldn’t afford UD Mildew and it was a decent dupe, and really beautiful. Hoping to get the new UD liner Freak for my birthday soon.
    Weekend plans: Errands, homework, and Rocky Horror stage show practice.
    Risk taker: Occasionally. I love the adrenaline rush from doing something scary.

  33. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Amy xamyx

    Haul: Sonia Kashuk pointed foundation brush; L’Oreal True Match Blush in Tender Rose; Sephora Compact Foundation in Deep 65 (it was on the cleaarance shelf, so I took a chaance to try it as a contour-so far, it looks like a good choice); MAC Cremeblend Blush in Brit Wit-HG color, but I really wanted a powder.

    I went to Sephora looking to buy the KvD Ladybird palette, but it won’t be in stores until May. I also stopped at MAC to swatch At Dusk, but it wasn’t quite right. I also tried Cubic, but settled for Brit Wit, which as I said, looooove the color, but would prefer a powder… If anyone knows of a dupe?

    Plans: Nothing planned as of yet, besides the daily grind, LOL.

    Thrillseeker?: As long there are no serious, known risks, I’m game. However, I don’t see the point of risking life & limb just for a few laughs.

  34. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Mariella Mariella

    Haul: I tried to purchase a new eye cream and another Shiseido foundation brush but the store was sold out of both. BUT…I did get a Real Techniques Travel Brush set…these brushes are now available at Walmart in Canada. They were sold out of the other brushes and sets I want but I’ll be back there when they restock to get more.

    Weekend plans: the first of what I imagine will be a string of bridal showers for my daughter is tomorrow. It’s a small house shower being hosted by my very best friend and another friend (the one who introduced me and my best friend) and I am very, very excited.

    Are you a thrill seeker? I teach cooking to high school students – fire, knives and teenagers! That and driving on the highway is enough “thrill seeking” for me!

  35. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of rebecca blueraccoon

    Haul: The new Maybelline Color Tattoos (duochromes! so awesome), and I think that’s it for me this week.

    Weekend plans: Gaming Saturday *and* Sunday (a friend is starting a new game on Sunday, so I’m looking forward to it. I get to play a bard!)

    Thrill seeker: Um, no. Not really. I do like roller coasters but that’s as close as I get.

    • Ugh, I haven’t seen the new Color Tattoos, but Musings of a Muse, the darling love, texted me and asked if I wanted (duh!), so hopefully I will have them in my grabby hands soon!

      • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of rebecca blueraccoon

        I found out that there are actually eight, not six (thanks to NouveauCheap) so I have to go hunt for the last two now. Sigh. At least I got six out of the eight! I really love them, although I’m curious what you’ll make of them because some of them are pretty sheer and I don’t know how they’re described. The duochrome is just so cool, though.

  36. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Vanda Vanda

    Haul: Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder and Laura Mercier Translucent Pressed Powder.
    Plans: work on Saturday and then spend some time with my boyfriend. See Oblivion at the cinema.
    Thrill seeker? No way!

  37. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Joyce Joyce

    Haul: nothing
    Weekend plans: Homework!
    Are you a thrill seeker?: What’s a thrill seeker? Like an adrenaline junkie? I would say no. I’d rather play a game of cards :) although I think I would enjoy extreme sports.

    AH!! Where’d you get the stuffed tick?? So cute!! How did he like the celery?

    • Amazon! :D

      I think he likes it… but does not love it. Perhaps as a “well, if this is all you’re giving me, I guess I’ll eat it…”

  38. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Lacey Lacey J.

    Haul: Revlon Lip Butters in Cotton Candy and Pink Truffle, Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe and Inked in Pink, and Wet n Wild Bronzing Powder in Reserve your Cabana. I think I did pretty good considering it was with birthday money.

    I will be moving out next weekend to my new place so I am trying to keep purchases limited for awhile! I technically have kept to my rule of no eyeshadow purchases this year :D, unless color tattoos count lol.

    Weekend Plans: Nothing much. I quit my job at the end of March and have been unemployed. I will be starting work again at the end of April! Getting a new job and a new apartment on the same day was pretty epic for me on Monday lol.

    Thrill Seeker: Nope. I’m boring. :D

  39. Oi

    Haul: theBalm – nude tude, balm jovi, bunch of blushes and TimeBalm foundation.
    Mac – sounds like noise lipstick. Sephora – butter London and nails Inc. polishes, Laura mercier mineral powder, and bunch of other stuff that I can’t remember.

    Plan: friends bday and cleaning. My pup sheds like crazy too!

    Thrill: to a certain extent. Definitely not an adrenaline addict.

    • What kind of pup do you have, Oi? Any tips to deal with shedding?

      • Oi

        I used to have a big yellow lab boy, and I now have a even bigger Rottweiler girl. They both shed so much that their fur gets into EVERY single corner of our house. Well, they shed when it’s getting warm, so I feel that if I could maintain the room temperature level throughout the year, they won’t shed much. But of course, they go outside and sit in the sun for hours everyday, I can’t control the shedding. So I just try to brush regulary and give them fish oil and vitamin c for their skin? scalp? and healthy hair growth. I also use natural avocado shampoo, and it makes their coat very shiny.

        If you find your dog is shedding a bit too excessively and notice some bald spots, you should take him to see a vet immediately, for it can be a thyroid problem.

        • Hey Oi!

          Yeah… no bald spots – we are always wondering how he can shed as much as he does and STILL have so much hair left! We live in California, so because it’s pretty mild and warmer, he just sheds allll year long. I try to Furminate him once a week or so, which does help.

          Thank you! :)

  40. VickyM

    Haul: I got Peridot nail polish at my local Chanel counter lol I´m not joking, my favorite Chanel counter is crazy, there are four of them in my city and this is the one I love the most the SA knows me for years now and is very nice to me but having just recieved Peridot polishes from France was unexpected at this point lol.

    Weekend plans: School and going out.

    Thrill: Even though I´m only 23 and in University I´m not a thrill seeker, not now, not before, not ever. I don´t like partying, drinking or any other dangerous, senseless behavior. However I have been on Eurodisney and other similar parks and those Roller Coasters shortened my lifespan I´m sure lol.

  41. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Veronica Veronica

    Mellan goes vegan? :)

    Haul: MAC Fix+ Refreshing Mist spray, Ouidad Leave-In Conditioner, Ouidad Mediterranean Bay-Leaf Exfoliating hair gel. Still vacillating over whether or not I’m going to return the Bobbi Brown foundation. I might keep it for the summer, since my skin picks up a faint tan and a bit of warmth.

    Weekend Plans: Clean, study, party with my sister. She’s moving to Florida in a week. ;-;

    Are you a thrill seeker? I have enough trouble dealing with every day life for that. :P

  42. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Sasha Sasha

    The resort collection looked really cute! Looking forward to the swatches. Did you see the new RBL collection out for pre-order?

  43. Jill

    ■Haul: I got the Extra Dimension Blushes in Blazing Haute and Fiery Impact, the Double Dimension Skin Finish, the two Dual Fiber Brushes, and the eyeshadow and lipstick from the Hayley Williams Collection. I tend to buy bright lipsticks because I think they’re fun, but I am actually more likely to use neutral colors or reds for work and every day. These are also the first blushes and skin finishes I’ve ever purchased. I don’t usually do a full face of makeup – usually just eyes and lips. So this will be a new adventure for me with the skin finish and blushes!

    ■Weekend plans: Resting and a barbecue with friends on Saturday. It might rain, though, so we’ll see. We will be barbecuing by the pool at their apartment complex, so I suppose if we’re going to get wet anyway, we might as well go swimming!

    ■Are you a thrill seeker?: Yes. My idea of thrills may not be what other people consider “thrilling.” I’m a parent with a potty training 2.5 year old. I look for things to do with my son that excite him and make him happy, but I also have to remember to take him to the bathroom. It’s potty training for me, as well, because sometimes I forget that he needs to go and he isn’t at the point where he will tell me before it happens. Sometimes, just getting him to the potty in time is a thrill in itself!

  44. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of kaylee kaylee

    HAUL: i ordered the first naked palette since i only have the naked 2 palette. :)
    WEEKEND PLANS: Hiking with the family other than that pretty uneventful sadly
    THRILL SEEKER: no but i havent really had opportunities for those kind of things. Hopefully in the future I’ll be able to do more exciting things.
    :D

  45. Jennifer

    Haul: MAC Matchmaster Foundation in 1.5, Mineralize Lipstick in Elegant Accent, Powder Blush in Pink Tea, and Pro Longwear Lipstick in Seasoned Plum

    Weekend plans: Looking forward to having brunch tomorrow with the whole family.

    Are you a thrill seeker?: Yes! Hubby and I enjoy extreme water sports and sky diving together. :)

  47. Haul: The Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner vault and Estee Lauder Pure Color blush in Wild Sunset.

    Weekend: A work related dinner at the yacht club across the bay from me on Saturday, and the casinos in Biloxi with my mom on Sunday.

    Are you a thrill seeker: I’d classify myself as a cautious thrill seeker. Rock climbing was a passion at one point in my life. I also ventured into Louisiana right after Hurricane Katrina to help take care of the animals rescued out of New Orleans. At the time, I didn’t know if roads were passable. Oh, and I’ve done loop de loops and flown upside down in a biplane!

    Haul: a freebie…my mom gave me a Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream that didn’t suit her. Would like to get the new Color Tattoo duochromes, especially the deep blue and the white.

    Weekend Plans: celebrating my parent’s 50th anniversary.

    Thrill seeker: I love thrill rides and seeing new places, but nothing that involves risking life and limb!

    Dog love: we also live with perpetual pet fur – a golden retriever, a lab/vizsla mix, and a cat.

    Weekend plans: Going out to the middle of nowhere with my boyfriend to take pictures of the aurora borealis that’s supposed to be visible from Ohio tonight. I’m excited!

    Are you a thrill seeker?: Yeah, to an extent. If it’s too risky, then I’ll probably opt out.

    Haul: Dior Rosy Glow Petal (used the Sephora 15% off), Zoya Liberty (trying that one tonight, but I was pretty disappointed because in reality is no where near as dark as it appears to be in a video Zoya released on twitter), a couple of Revlon polishes (a new shade in the regular line, “Rose Beige” – beautiful nude pink, and one from a new line I haven’t seen before called Chroma Chameleon in “Amethyst”).

    Plans: we went to see the Evil Dead remake on Sat. Sun we’re traveling to Augusta, GA for work.

    I used to be one when I was younger, but not so much anymore ;).
