Today, Friday, has been a day for waiting in for the telephone repair man. I have a working phone again πŸ™‚

This week I bought Sleek Kohl, Sleek Rose Gold blush, and the Acid and Good Girl palettes.

I am waiting for some other palettes to arrive from Sleek’s one-day ‘50% off’ online sale, which seems to have been more than their website could handle. One week later my order is still showing as ‘received’ but not yet ‘dispatched’, which seems to be the experience of many.

Haul: nars eyeshadow in lola lola,rosebud salve in strawberry and 5 of the sephora lipgloss that were on sale for 4 dollars what i steal! elf complexion perfection and a elf eyecurler.

Friday plans: Lunch with my bestfriend at Ihop!

Favorite holiday dish: cranberry sause! i love putting it with the turkey if its dry(which it usually is if my one uncle cooks it)

mellan is just adorable all cuddled up in the blanket

aww Mellan! I love how animals hide their noses under stuff.

Latest Haul: Matte Topcoat by Hard Candy.
Weekend Plans: edit a vid for my Youtube channel, a rap song about Dutch-Indonesian food haha!

Is it wrong that I don’t realize how fast the weeks have been going by till I realize it’s already Free For Haul Fridays on here and #FF on Twitter?

Haul; MAC My Dark Magic eyeshadow. I bought it on a whim hoping I’d have the cojones to actually wear it out in public and I have to say it’s AWESOME! It’s far more versatile than I expected. The last 3 times I wore it my husband purred!

Friday Plans; quick run to Dillards then a husbandless & childless 5 hour drive to Key West for the weekend.

Favorite Holiday Dish: ANYTHING with pumpkins and cinnamon. MMMMM

Have not bought a thing. Haha. Its amazing when a makeup addict can say she has everything she wants/nneds. (gasp.) Wait… I lie. I bought some lashes. Ardel 109’s yesterday. Guess that counts. (:

Urban decay mary jane eyeshadow. My car got clamped even though i’d paid for parking (the disc slipped off the dashboard) and got a 120e fine (like $150!!!) so i’m so poor this month! I wanted nars bougainville lipgloss but they don’t have it in stock!

Lectures all weekend so i took today off work (because I’m so tired from working late and lectures and study) and i’m having a duvet day!

I was really bad this week. I bought the stila color wheel palette, a stila smudge stick in stingray, some opi nail polishes( which may be going back) , a maybelline creme shadow palette, physicians formula creme liner set, the falsies mascara , a bottle of Marula oil , new pajamas , and a bunch of bath stuff from Bath and Body Works .

I plan on going to a concert and sleeping today.

My favorite dish is dressing, and smoked turkey. Oh and real caramel cake πŸ˜€

Haul: 3 MAC Pearlglides: Black Swan, Black Line and Petrol Blue and Wrong Spell from VV πŸ™‚

Friday Plans: Working on a few design projects for clients that I really need to wrap up so I’m not spending my entire weekend doing it.

Favorite holiday dish: My mom’s dressing. I live for it!!!! Sidebar: Is stuffing vs. dressing a regional thing? I’m a Southern girl.

I went to ulta and bought OPI russian navy and suzi skis in the pyrenees (free top coat), ulta polish: envy and fuschiamania, and NYC 99c glitter polish. NYX glitter liner and purple kohl liner. A paddle brush and a round boars bristle brush – i bought the cheapest ones.

i don’t have weekend plans yet, because my bf decided to break up with me quite randomly… but i am looking for a job/volunteer position so that’s something to do.

I love stuffing and green bean casserole, and salad, and all the deserts especially pumpkin rolls!

My latest haul is Marc Jacobs Lola, Josie Maran Argan Oil and a few Lush products!

I’m excited for Thanksgiving too! My favorite dish is sweet potatoes with marshmallows over top and my grandma’s mashed potatoes.

Haul: Vichy normaderm skincare products.

Friday plans: Civil Proof class and working tonight (im already sick of christmas music!)

Favorite holiday dish: Christmas breakfeast with my family. Whatever we eat, it feels like my sister and I are 5 years old again and i dont see my family very often so its really cool πŸ™‚

Happy Friday!
Beauty Haul: Lately, I have been restocking my mascara supply. So I bought the Cover Lash Blast Mascara 3 pack set from Costco. Ladies, this is an awesome mascara so if you are a Costco member, buy the 3 pack. It costs about $10 and change. I also bought 2 tubes of L’oreal’s Extra Volume Collagen Mascara (another awesome mascara) at Target.

Saturday Plans: Spending time with my family and friends.

Looking forward to: My husband’s birthday and Thanksgiving, which are both this coming week.

I bought the Warm Thrillseekers set because I loved your swatches. It’s the best set of the three, in my opinions. I’m lovin’ it!

Friday plans: Nothing special today, just some food shopping!
Favorite holiday dish; I loved a baked ham way more than a chicken or turkey. My grandma makes the best glaze ever.

Haul: Mac pro longwear concealer, opi Shimmer&shimmer and Sallyhansen 10 day no chip top coat. I love all of these products so far πŸ˜€
Friday plans: Go to my ballett class or stay home beeing sick…, I haven’t decided if I am going to stay home yet.

I know YSL touche eclat has been around forever and everyone raves about it…but is it really all that?? I am looking for a better under eye concealer since my Stila one just isn’t cutting it anymore. I don’t get puffy eyes but do have very dark circles that get worse with age. Let me know if you like it. Thanks!!

And my final haul was an Inara Goddess Ear cuff from Thyme2dream’s Etsy shop.

Friday plans: I have some serious puzzling to do on Puzzle Pirates if I want the November Harvest sloop.

Favorite holiday dish: I love to put stuffing, turkey, corn, and maybe some yams into a bowl, liberally cover with gravy and dig in with a giant spoon. It’s my savory Thanksgiving sundae.

I just bought the holiday pigment sets from MAC. I really loving the pigments. I just recently started using MAC pigments. I in love. I really love Naked Pigments. I have a full size of the pigments. I use this everyday as a highlighted color. It is perfect for my complexion. I now have a smaller size. I know I would probably won’t use nearly half, but it is nice to have.

Favorite holiday dish: You know, anything is fine. πŸ™‚ Usually every year we switch our family holiday dish`s.

Mellan looks too cute snuggled up in his blanket! I have a cat bed called a “Cat Cave” – it’s like a little igloo covered in fur – my cat curls up in a little ball and hibernates in there when it gets cold!

Mellan tiene friooooo!!!!

What i love about thanskgiving: EVERYTHING!!! I’m such a fatty.

Friday plans: Sleeping i had a stressful week at work.

Haul: Too Faced Enchanted Glamourland (present for my sister) and a leather jacket.

Friday plans: Eating pizza and watching telly!

Favorite holiday dish: Roasted potatoes, parsnips and carrots.. And a nut roast with gravy, yum!

Haul: Got MUFE Lift Concealer for my brand spanking new undereye circles and wrinkles πŸ™ I’m really torn up about this! Have never had to worry about either before! So far it’s performing pretty well. I very nearly bought the Sephora by OPI polish sampler – it’s got like 40 mini bottles!

Friday plans: working now, Harry Potter after πŸ™‚ Can’t wait!

Fave holiday dish: I love anything pumpkin, banana bread, potatoes and TURKEY! Turkey is my #1 love in life πŸ™‚

I just got the mini OPI set. It’s 18 but I really like it. Granted the bottles are really, really tiny..but some colors like yellow, I know I am only going to use a few times anyway. If I like one a lot and use it up, I will just buy the full size. It’s a great set!! Get it if you want to try a lot of different colors.

My loot for the week; which will be the last for a long while:

MAC Paintpots – Soft Ochre, Quite Natural, Indianwood, Rubenesque, Groundwork; lipliner in Sublime Culture; plushglass in Wildly Lush.

Weekend plans – Me and the hubs plan on watching a UFC fight on Saturday; he is battling a cold right now so plans my change. πŸ™‚

I got this eye gloss stuff from Victoria Secret’s holiday collection. I haven’t bought or been impressed with any cosmetic in a long time, everything seems very redundant lately, and it caught my eye. I bought it for my bridesmaids because they want to wear some shimmer on their lids but aren’t makeup savvy. It comes out of a tube very very dense and dry looking but spreads out into nothing but sparkle. It stays pretty well, doesn’t crease if you put it on thin, and packs a load of shimmer.

I also tried Revlon’s lip stain pen in Twilight and although the chapstick end sucks and the color can look like i have bleeding lips if it gets on the inner mouth/lip area, if I apply it to just my bottom lip and quickly blot, it looks amazing!

Aww, cute Mellan pic! Is that the Lambie blanket from Bath and Body Works by any chance?

My haul was pathetic this week! All I bought was one of the OPI Burlesque glitters! I got Sparkle-icious, and I’m wearing it right now over a hot pink Coach GWP nail polish.

My plans for today include dinner with my husband and his sister and then Harry Potter! We’re taking her out early for her birthday.

My favorite holiday dish is definitely mashed potatoes, but I love cranberry sauce with turkey, too! Really, I love every Thanksgiving dish there is. Thanksgiving in general is just awesome; I even love that silly Macy’s parade!

Haul: Flowerbomb perfume, BE Rare Minerals moisturizer, Still Travel Pallette No.1, Sephora Blush in Mono, Kat Von D Adora Perfume

Friday Plans: Get my place ready for Thanksgiving and pick up 2 of those doggy beds that are 40% off at Petsmart

Favorite Holiday Dish: Do I have to pick one?! If I really had to choose I would say Pumpkin Crunch. Its this really yummy pumpkin dessert my kid sister makes every year. SO GOOD!


Haul: Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear polish in Rockstar Pink, OPI Sparkle-icious & MAC Courting Lilac

Friday plans: Dinner & going to see Margaret Cho with husband

Favorite holiday dish: pecan pie

Haul: I bought a bunch of Wet n’ Wild Color Icon products, including two eyeshadow paletes in Greed and Walking on Eggshells, Blusher in Berry Shimmer and Mellow Wine, and Bronzer in Princess. I think these are amazing products, I’m super impressed by the Color Icon line the formulation is really great.

I also got a 2-pack of Caudalie Lip Conditioner and a bunch of samples (yay!).

Chanel Glossimer in #141 Maline @23.00 vs 27.00

They didn’t have a great selection but the $14.50 savings can’t be beat!
Friday Night: Homework! Quarter ends tomorrow 11/20 @8am & I have a lot of catch up to do.
Favorite dish: Green bean casserole & Gravy…Nothing beats some good gravy.
Thanks for reading my novel! Have a beautiful weekend everyone!

Love Mellan’s pics at the end of the week. They make me smile =D.

Haul: MAC’s cool pigments set from TT collection and 165 brush (my haul’s crowning jewel). Clinique’s jumbo clarifying lotion (comes with a pump yay =)), Tweezerman’s tweezers and a nail buffing thingy from Sephora.

Mellan is the cutest thing EVER. Every week, you post a picture and my heart absolutely MELTS.

I failed at my no buy this week. Meh…

Haul: Bobbi Brown Color Corrector in Peach, Mac Matte face primer stuff? Not too bad I guess. I really needed the concealer though im dying to get rid of the blueness under my eyes… and my skin hasnt been taking my makeup too well so I thought I’d try a primer. Essentials right? Nothing fancy?

I had to order something from sephora though they were having this awesome free samples “getaway” kit.

Friday plans: Hooray Paper Writing! Why do I never have any variation in my weekend plans?

Favorite holiday dish: Probably stuffing… the one I make ehhh, sounds conceited but oh well. It’s homemade and my parents only make it out of a box so… but I’m not having a thanksgiving this year sadly. It’s my last semester in college and I am cramming like crazy and couldn’t afford to make the long long trip home to SD, and umm I currently have no car HAHA so makes travel difficult.

That’s the best blanket ever. I regret not buying a couple last year (my 2008 is still in EXCELLENT condition!) Lucky Mellan!

Haul: Nothing! I’m doing all of my Christmas shopping (about $500 worth) in the upcoming week so I’m not buying anything for myself until at least the second week in December.

Friday plans: Making dinner for my parents.

Favorite holiday dish: Does wine count? I only drink a couple times a year, and when I do, it’s usually a holiday! Otherwise, I love roasted sweet potatoes (with olive oil, fresh black pepper and garlic salt–yum!)

Haul: Just my Neutrogena Fragrance Free Norwegian Formula Hand Cream. I had no money for seriously weeks because I had to sort out a huge fraud thing with my bank. Thank God it’s all over, that’s all I have to say.

Plans: Staying at home. I’m still recovering from a heinous cold.

Favorite Holiday Dish: Ham. I LOVE Ham. I’m incredibly picky about my ham, but I love ham. This year we won’t have it because I’m cooking up my “World” famous Italian herbed chicken breasts with almost homemade garlic bread (I make the garlic paste, I buy the baguette) and homemade apple caramel pie (which I make also). Guess who’s going to be in the kitchen all day? That would be me.

Awwwww, Zena does that too. I finally finished crocheting her a blanket so she can burrow in that instead of my fleece ones! Does she burrow in her new blanket? No, she continues to burrow in mine. My dog has rejecting nearly 2 years of hard work! ACK!

Haul: nail polish from china glaze ruby deer and naughty or nice and from opi burlesque let me entertain you and teasy does it.
Friday plans: vegetating
favorite holiday food: cranberry sause

What am I wearing? Mascara. Really.I finally got over cold a little bit ago, so Im trying to avoid the shadows and pretty glosses
Have a great weekend peps!

Cute doggie! I worked a ton this week so the haul was light – got 4 Rimmel nail polishes (Lycra wear in Black Satin, Powerhouse, Insolence, and Celebrity Bash) for 50 cents each at a clearance store.

Friday plans: Go to IMAX with friends to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, of course!!

Favorite Holiday Dish: pumpkin pie with homemade whip cream

Haul: Just one small thing – Benefit Creaseless/Liner in “Birthday Suit”
I’m really loving it! It’s so much better than MAC paintpots and I’m definitely going to get some more.

Favorite holiday dish: Does Apple Pie with vanilla ice cream count? XD Generally I love it when my family get all together and cook. All the dishes are really delicious (the dinner table is laid with a mix of vietnamese dishes and “caucasian” dishes). It’s one of the reasons I’m really looking forward to Christmas (Thanksgiving already passed here in Canada).

Haul: I know it’s not Friday anymore but I just had to share. I got my hands on the Naked palette but how it happened was kind of accidental…a fluke really. Obviously, it’s been sold out all over the place but I’d been reading on message boards that Ulta online would restock every so often only to have them sell out immediately. I’d been checking over the course of a day and could never even pull up the palette’s page on the site (I guess they remove it when an item is out of stock). But for some reason I randomly Googled “naked palette” and a few entries down was a page on Ulta. I thought that was strange since when I searched for it on the actual site, no results came up. So I clicked on it, and there it was. I put it in my cart and it stayed. I was a little worried that I’d somehow messed with the almighty internetz and grabbed a weird cached page that was just waiting for a convenient moment to disappear from my browser. But that never happened. I placed the order and a day later it was shipped. Success! Just got it today and it’s absolutely gorgeous. I can’t wait to test to out tomorrow morning.

Friday plans: Went to a design opening at my school.

Favorite holiday dish: Ham & pineapple!
