  • Haul: My Sephora F&F haul arrived yesterday – I picked up a Sephora + Pantone eyeliner set, Sephora gloss set, philosophy set, a few Illamasqua nail varnishes and Stranger Intense Lipgloss.
  • Weekend plans:  I’m crossing fingers that I can get a good night’s sleep!  Farmer’s market, brunch, and wash Mellan (or Smellan as we’re calling him right now).
  • Do you like spicy food?:  I do! I wouldn’t say that I want anything super, super spicy–I won’t be winning any hot pepper eating contests any time soon–but I like some kick.
