  • Haul: Kat Von D Everlasting Nudes Liquid Lipsticks, MUFE Liquid Lipsticks
  • Weekend plans: More Gilmore Girls, and then Super Bowl on Sunday!
  • Do you prefer the city or the country?: I like suburbs; I like being close enough to the city that it isn’t an inconvenience to go, but I don’t think I’d want to live so rural where it was just me for a few miles (or even just a few acres!).

  • Haul: Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks (4 of the 5 I was missing, 1 was out of stock), Ditypque Rosa Mundi candle because I am a sucker for mint green and pink, new Coloured Raine eyeshadows
  • Weekend plans: Write reviews like crazy! I spent so much of this week photographing/swatching and then editing those photos that I did not put out as many reviews as I normally would.
  • Do you or have you kept a journal?: I haven’t in a very, very long time, and the few times I tried, it lasted for a week.

We are still waiting on results from one last test, but Mellan's been diagnosed with chronic active hepatitis and copper storage disease. The last test detects how much copper has accumulated in his liver (and determines dosing/length of treatment). Treatable with lifestyle changes and medicine/supplements for life but not curable, the hope remains that we detected the issues early enough that his longevity will only be minimally impacted. Thank you for all of your support and love ❤️ Edited to add: I'm truly thankful that there are treatment options, but I cannot express to you how much your support of the blog shapes my life and my family's life. It is with your continued support that I have a livelihood that gives me the ability to provide for my baby ? he's the dog that Temptalia has built ☺

  • If you could have any super power, what would it be?: I think moving things with my mind would be pretty cool.

Breakfast pose. Like he's waiting for race to start ? (we make him wait here, before releasing him to his bowls)
