The Best of the Best, Volume #008

This week’s been better than the last — not quite so sick (just got this loud cough) — but I’ve been playing catch-up in every aspect of my life. I literally feel like I lost an entire week of my life!

What are your weekend plans?

We’re going to go see my boyfriend’s family to celebrate my (much belated now) birthday, since we weren’t able to visit two weeks ago since we were both ridiculously sick.

The Best of the Best, Volume #007

I’ve been majorly sick since Wednesday afternoon, with the cold/flu I have going full throttle on Thursday.  I never thought I’d be so sick that I’d be too sick to blog.  I’m really sorry I haven’t been able to put any posts in the past few days.  I actually have an appointment to go see the doctor in a few hours.  I do feel slightly better today, though still wretched, but I hope to be able to do some blogging tomorrow.

What are your weekend plans?

I was going to go see my boyfriend’s family to celebrate my birthday, but I don’t want to pass on my lovely germs to anyone, so I’ll be staying inside and wallowing in my misery.  I hope your weekend plans are much more exciting!

The Best of the Best, Volume #006

It’s been a pretty awesome week for me, so I’m jazzed about that.  We bought Mellan a Halloween costume yesterday, for entertainment value, and it was so worth it.  Absolutely hilarious.  Surprisingly, he was pretty good about wearing it–didn’t attempt to take it off!

What are your weekend plans?

Study, study, study!  I have a midterm next week, so I have to prepare and memorize a zillion things for it.  As far as fun goes, probably go out to eat once or twice with the boy and use Mellan as a distraction for all things academic!

The Best of the Best, Volume #005

This week just FLEW by for me! What about you? I hope, good or bad, you’re excited for the weekend. :) It’s been a busy MAC-centric week with so many collections debuting in such a short span! (Don’t forget, DSquared launches on the 28th–Monday–now!)

What are your weekend plans?

My birthday’s on Monday, so I’ll be doing some celebrating with the boyfriend and family! The boy and I are actually going to one of my favorite restaurants tonight — can’t wait! :) Other than that… I gotta study for a midterm and do some dreaded homework!

The Best of the Best, Volume #003

I hope your week has been better than mine! The week itself has been just fine for the most part… except that I’ve been sick since last Friday with a cold/flu. All I know is I’ve decided that the worst part during the day is feeling achy, and the worst part during the night is coughing up a lung while trying to sleep! I’m crossing my fingers I’m better by Monday! :)

What are your weekend plans?

For my weekend, I’ll be heading to Nordstrom’s Trend Show on Saturday morning and then trying to relax a bit on Sunday and get some homework done.

The Best of Guerlain

Guerlain is a brand that always steals my heart. It has that combination of luxe and quality that I find hard to resist! These are a few of their can’t-be-missed products…

  • Guerlain Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00) are well-pigmented palettes that feature four eyeshadows that work well together. I love Bronze Dore! So pretty!
  • Guerlain Meteorites Powder ($53.00) is a soft shimmery highlighter that is fun to use and works really well to add a subtle glow to cheeks and face without highlighting imperfections because the shimmer is so fine.
  • Guerlain KissKiss Gloss ($29.00) is one of my favorite gloss formulas! (It’s pretty much tied with YSL’s Golden Gloss.) Soft, shimmer makes every color have the appearance of shimmering water. I love shades like Fraise a Croquer and Rose Florida. They’re a great non-sticky gloss that doesn’t dry out your lips and lets your lips shine.
  • Guerlain KissKiss Lipstick ($30.00) comes in a large variety of shades, so you’re bound to find at least one (if not far too many) that suit your tastes. They’re creamy, long-wearing lipsticks that feel hydrating and luxe on lips. One of my favorite lipstick formulas — Rouge G and YSL’s Rouge Volupte top it, but only slightly.
  • Guerlain Terracotta Loose Powder Kohl Liner ($34.00) are long-wearing loose kohls that can be worn on the water line without causing aggravation. I only wish they made more colors!
  • Guerlain ‘Blush 4 Eclats’ Sculpting Blush ($48.00) are silky smooth powder blush compacts with four different shades designed to be used together with one sweep from left to right and then applied to cheeks. Whether you use that method or swirl them together, you’ll come up with something gorgeous. I love every single one they have out (I believe it’s six), but my favorites are Soleil Couchant and Rose Plein Vent.
  • Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder ($46.00) is a silky smooth bronzing powder that applies easily and nearly effortlessly. It is just a sheer shade that works well to give you a natural looking sunkissed glow. No orange here!
