Everyone with rain should be happy! It is 110 with the heat index here today (in St. Louis).

Haul: My Topkapi quad came in the mail on Monday but getting it was a pain in the rear! Chanel charged me 9 dollars for shipping (in addition to the price of the quad) and just sent me the two complimentary samples that I chose at checkout! I called and asked and they were like, oh sorry, that’s been out of stock, we can’t believe the website let you order it, we will refund, etc. I was adamant and I said no! No refund! I need this quad! So they finally sent it! Yay!

I haven’t been on your awesome site in WAY TOO LONG!

Should arrive any day now…. Also needed new gym shoes (the all-black Nike Frees) BORING!!!

Haul: The Benefit counter definitely cashed in on me (They’re Real mascara, B.Right It’s Potent eye cream, Tweezerman for Benefit and samples of the Triple Performing face emulsion and Foamingly Clean).

I have to say…I am falling in love with Benefit’s Foamingly Clean facial wash. And I love the scent…I’m really in to fruity/cucumber scents. Also, I’d liek to note that it’s been 5 days and so far, (‘ve been using it twice a day, once on the first evening of course) no breakouts yet! I also love how my skin feels right after washing it. No tightness or ruddy feeling. Just clean and refreshed! I will def buy the full-sized version!

Weekend Plans: Garage sale with my sister-in-law!

Haul:I went more than a little nuts on eBay getting polish and a few other items. But I think in rolled maybe 30 nail polishes this week. Soon as the new fall Zoya polish collections are in hand, I am taking a forced break from purchasing polishes. I am running out of storage area for my polish boxes.
Weekend plans: Wash windows and curtains, read my book, light catch up on vacuuming into nooks and crannies. Attend a Lavender festival.
What’s on my nails: Nothing right now – but pedi is supporting Zoya Kimmy, needs to be changed and think next will be Zoya Tanzy also from the Sunshine Summer 2011 collection I got free when Zoya had their get 6 bottles of one of the 2 summer collections free when you bought their color-lock system! GREAT DEAL! I was all over that one.

haul: covergirl lastblast and maybelline one-by-one. TiffanyD uses them on youtube, and her lashes always look AMAZING, so i figured i’d give them a try!

nails: nada on fingers (though i think i’m going to do zoya bela tonight), zoya tobey on toes!
