  1. Aww look at Mellan! I love it when big dogs run, but a bit less if they’re dragging me along 😉

    Haul: Got some stuff from Rouge Bunny Rouge (Florita blush, Olive Violetear and Eclipse Eagle eyeshadows) as well as some Dior mascaras and another Rouge Dior (there was this big sale and I couldn’t resist)!

    Weekend plans: It might sound funny but I’m looking forward to going to the Hard Rock Cafe in Brussels with the fiance! He’s a big fan of Lennon and he’d be happy to see some of Lennon’s stuff there!

    Food you could eat all day, every day?: My first thought was pasta, then I read your answer and now I can’t stop thinking about pizza!

    Plans: Care for my sick hubby and baby.

    Food: Homemade Mexican by my mom, tia, or abuela. Comfort food. Jajajaja!

  3. Jenn H.

    Haul: Hmmm… let’s go to Sephora! And then have my teammates and coach see what I’d be hauling in… and my questionable shopping habits. Maybe a few nail polishes… The Sephora X explosives seem great.
    Weekend plans: Swim meet in Marin, and trip to San Francisco on top… explains the shopping.
    Food: Sushi- specifically Salmon (Sake) Nigiri or Horse Clam/Geoduck Clam (Mirugai) Nigiri. I wish I can ditch dinner with the team for my sushi fix. Hey, it’s swim meet food! (So is Nutella)

  4. Clara

    Haul: MAC 109 Contour Blush, Shiseido Foundation Brush, MAC Studio Fix Fluid, MAC Pearlglide Liners in violet and Brown, YSL Gel Liner in Cerise Noire, Maybelline Fit Me Stick

    Weekend plans: begin with Christmas shopping

  5. xamyx

    Haul: NARS duos in Elsa, Nouveau Monde, Paramaribo, & Indian Summer; NARS Multiple in Luxor; NARS single Barbuda (all on ebay-I’m waiting to do my NARS haul when the Guy Bourdin collection is released). I also picked up a NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Purple Velvet, a concealer, and 2 lipsticks (Circe & Summer Love-I do love “concealer lips”); 2 mini Dr. Jart Premium BB Creams; Pond’s BB Cream; 2 Too Faced Chocolate Soleil minis (Sephora 100 point perks).

    Plans: Nothing particular planned. I got laundry done yesterday, so some light cleaning, and if I get around to it, playing with my Vice 2 palette from last week.

    Food: My latest obsession is Birthday Cake Oreo’s… Bacon is a close second, though!

  6. Lily

    Weekend plans: See Gravity this afternoon, give Bandit a bath tomorrow!

  7. Veronica

    Haul: Maybelline Born With It, Real Color Pokerface eyeshadow, Revlon Colorburst lipgloss in Orchid, and e.l.f. matte lip pencil in Rich Red. I also picked up Lancome Le Stylo Waterproof eyeliner in 401 – Turquoise for my mother’s birthday because it’s the closest dupe I could find for Estee Lauder’s Electric Teal…which must have fallen out of her purse and is now lost to us. (LOST. L.O.S.T. Out of all the products I give her, she loses the irreplaceable one!)

    Weekend Plans: WORKING. Doubling back two of those days, too. And laundry. I’m sort of behind. >_>

    Food you could eat all day, every day? Sushi! Om nom nom.

    Hmmm….I need some brushes

    I will watch the movie my friend’s in(main role in a surreal romanian movie) 😀 Idk if this weekend or another one

    I love pizza too, including that one with blue-green cheese…i don’t like meat that much and i don’t want the ketchup to be spicy. I also like McDonald’s (bad :(( ), Pasta is nice too, with sea fruit….and I like snacks…and biscuits…damn. I like eating a lot of cherries

I mean, you have to alternate between sweet and salty! 😀 Ah, what a happy life it would be if one could eat all the yummy yummies without consequence.

  10. Haul: My god, I hauled a ton from the Makeup Show Orlando. Tons of NARS, OCC, Ofra, Cult Nails, Cinema Secrets, Lolade, Xtreme lashes, Ellis Faas, etc
    Weekend plans: Phaedra needs a bath and the Chagrin Valley dog shampoo soap has arrived. I’m also seeing the eye doctor.

        1. NAVRATRI ( nine nights ) FESTIVAL – it will be for 9 days and 9 forms of GODDESS is worshiped , most of the people will keep fast and will only have fruits/ fluids … no grains . We keep one pot (in Hindi called Kalash) filled with water and keep coconut over it … on 9th day, we break the coconut and then distribute it and then worship children .
        2. DUSSERAH , OCT 14th : the 10th day of NAVRATRI is dusserah , it is symbol of victory over evil, you should read it in wiki dear … its hugeeee you know , especially in some parts of INDIA it is very significant , like in MYSORE , they have special events for this festival and its world famous .
        3. KARVA CHAUTH which is on 22nd oct : married ladies keep fast for their husband and will not drink / eat anything whole day … we do pooja which again varies across India , in night , we see MOON with strainer and then see our husband’s face and he gives us water and then some sweets and break our fast …
        Unmarried girls also keep this fast out of interest.
        4. DEEPAWALI , on 4th Nov : the biggest festival of INDIA and money is spent in every possible form … in the form of new clothes , sweets , lighting , crackers , gifts and what not … so its the COSTLIEST FESTIVAL i must say 😀 its 3 days festival and on 3rd day , it is called “Bhaiya dooj” , meant for brothers and sisters ….

    Favorite food: Would have to be sushi… I could be as full as anything, and someone says "sushi" suddenly I'm hungry again lol.
