Aww, Melan is such a cutie! πŸ™‚

Haul: I finally gave in to the hype and bought a palette by Urban Decay – the Naked 2. I’m actually more into matte eyeshadow (Kat von D Ladybird is so tempting! haha), but I felt like trying something shimmery again. So far I quite like Snakebite and Busted.
Also ordered a few brushes from Furless, they haven’t arrived yet though. I’ve heard good things about the brand so I’m really looking forward to receiving them.

Weekend plans: Nothing special. I’m working over the weekend.

What time do you normally wake up and go to bed?: I usually get ready for bed around 10pm and then I tend to read until I feel sleepy. My alarm clock goes off at 6:00am.

Mellan looks so comfortable with Lambchop by his side. πŸ™‚

Haul: Giorgio Armani Rouge d’Armani Lipsticks in 601, 602, and 603; Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes in Pink Haze, Lipsticks in Casablanca and Indian Rose, Skin Illuminator in Fire Lust.

Weekend plans: None yet, it’s been raining hard for the past few days, so we’d rather relax at home than go out and get stuck in traffic.

What time do you normally wake up and go to bed?: I always make sure I’m already in bed before midnight strikes, and then wake up around 9am. πŸ™‚

Lately I’ve been on a very similar sleeping schedule… Bed around 11 or midnight and up at 7 or 8.

All I bought this week was “Tangerine Dream” from the All About Orange collection.

Haul: Too much, LOL…

* Real Techniques Starter Set
* Real Techniques Shader, Angled Foundation, & Expert Face Brush (this is a backup)
* Maybelline Color Tattoos in Lavish Lavender, Precious Pearl, Waves of White, & Seashore Frosts (and they were BOGO 1/2, which I found out when I paid)
* Sonia Kashuk 6-piece brush set (the LE Summer 2013 set)
* NARS blush/bronzer duos in Sin/Casino & Oasis/Laguna (LE)
* WnW bronzer in Ticket To Brazil
* LORAC Tantalizer bronzer/highlighter duo (mini)
*Physician’s Formula Glow Pearls in Transluscent Pearl
* Sinful Colors polishes in New Wave & Cloud 9

I *think* that’s everything…

Plans: Nothing in particular…

Bedtime/Wakeup: I *try* to stay up until 1am (to watch Red Eye), and I wake up at 7am.

Haul: don’t know yet have to pick my parents up from the San Francisco airport and since I never go to “the city” I am using it as an excuse to go to all the stores that are not available in San Jose (Bloomingdales Neiman Marcus and Saks). I will probably get something by the Napa based company 29 as I love all of there products and haven’t had anything new from them in years due to the counter being in San Franscisco only!

Weekend Plans: I need to get some work as it has been a hectic work week. I also plan on going for a mountain bike ride

What time do you normally go to bed and wake up: I don’t sleep well and have had insomnia for years! I try to go to bed by 11 but end up staring at the ceiling. I’m up at 545 daily for cross fit. Tired is unfortunately a way of life for me. I’m always searching for my hg concealer for the dark circles and puffiness under my eyes! Lol

LOL! Seriously, I’ve lived in the Bay Area for like 15 years and have been to “the city” half a dozen times.

Haul: Nothing this week! I’ve been good πŸ™‚

Weekend plans: have a fantabulastic sunny weekend with the boyfriend!

What time do you normally wake up and go to bed?: I usually wake up at 7:45. And I’m usually in bed around 11PM, sometimes it’s closer to midnight.

Awww, I remember Lambchop!

Haul: I just purchased the new Chanel quad exclusive to Saks Fifth, and earlier in the week, I purchased a bunch of Mac’s All About Orange and a few more Temperature Rising pieces. Love!

Weekend Plans: renovation of our newly purchased house. Fun stuff…

Wake up time: 5:00 a.m.–always!
Sleep time: 11:30 p.m. if I’m lucky, which is never!

β– Haul: Yesterday I bought Revlon’s “Cherries in the Snow” lipstick,and I’m planning on making a trip to Sephora/MAC later today.. dangerous! haha

β– Weekend plans: working Saturday, and hopefully the weather will cooperate and be sunny on Sunday!

β– What time do you normally wake up and go to bed?: I have to be at work by 8, so I usually try to be in bed by 10ish, although that doesn’t always happen

Haul: Mac Dollymix, it has been my go to blush for the whole week and I love it, bought I on Tuesday an IΒ΄m in love with it, I also got a dark deep green nail polish πŸ˜€ .

Weekend: Classes and homework, after that going out for lunch.

Wake up, go to bed: I have no discipline when it comes to this, I could fall asleep at 5 am and wake up around 11 am, or I could sleep around 1 am and wake up around 9 am πŸ˜› .

I also love Dollymix blush. It was my go-to blush til I discovered Tarte Natural Beauty. I still love Dollymix, though, and use it pretty often. MAC has so many irresistible blush shades.

Haul: UD 24/7 in Invasion, MUFE Aqua lip in 1C. My lips are way too pigmented and turn everything pink, so this is my go to for turning my lips neutral without foundation. I did buy a TON of OCC lip tars but they arent coming until next week so I will post about them then!

Weekend plans: swimming and a mother-daughter brunch with my 11 year old.

Bedtime: Up at 7 and usually in bed midnight, weekends I sleep in.

Haul – Not much. I got one of the new Rimmel lip glosses and pick one up from Forever 21 in the prettiest pink/coral sparkle that was only $1.80.

Weekend plans. To go see “The Purge”

We usually go to bed around 8:30. The man watches tv and I read blogs on my iPad. I try to go to sleep by 9:30. I usually wake up between 4:30-6:30…not by choice but by insistent dogs.

Mellan woke me up at 6:30am today – which I was expecting since he had some water at bed time. Normally he’s much nicer!

Haul: Dior Blue Label np, Chanel Black Pearl np, Devita BB cream (Light), Guerlain “Les Bois de Rose” e/s quad, Revlon Nearly Naked foundation (130 Shell – a tan dark for me), BeautyBlender sponge, Flower beauty eyeliners in Navy and Aubergine (lovely colors, don’t last very long in my waterline though).

Weekend plans: enjoying the outdoors πŸ™‚

What time do you normally wake up and go to bed? It’s never the same, sometimes I stay up ’till 2-3am and then wake up around 10am, other times I’m asleep by 10pm and wake up early… It depends on what’s been going on in my day.

Not really, no… I have a couple of the nail polishes, which are a really nice formula, but I haven’t ventured much into their line. I do like the eyeliners I picked, the color payoff is really nice, I just wish they lasted longer on my waterline.

Haul: I got some truly fantastic news school-wise, so I went a bit overboard… The selection round is not over for the schools I applied to, including my dream school, but it bodes rather well (and really, I had so many setbacks this past couple of years, so I’m ecstatic!), so I bit the bullet and bought Tom Ford Lovelust (I’ve been eyeing it for about a year) as a congrats gift from myself to myself, and a treat to keep me going! πŸ™‚ I also bought Nars Golshan on my sister’s advice, Chanel Jade Shore after swatching it at the counter because it is amazing, and an Essie topcoat. Luckily enough, I had some coupon.
I also bought Mac 188, but that’s a gift from my mother!

Weekend plans: Rest a wee bit (lots of stress waiting for the results for my entry exams), and WORKKKK. I have to justify my spendings!

What time do you normally wake up and go to bed?: I usually wake up at 6:50, and I go to bed at 22:30!

Thank you so much! I’ll try to do my best! πŸ™‚
(I’m wearing Lovelust right now and I’m smitten. The quality is truly out-of-this-world. I’ve never ever tried anything like it!)

Awwww seeing Mellan nuzzling his new friend is so adorable!

This weeks haul – I bought a LE Revlon set from Total Beauty that was recently delivered – it came with 1 of the e/s quads, 2 lip butters (Sorbet and a milky pink) and 1 nail polish (it’s a nude shade) all for 15 bucks! I LOVE the e/s and Sorbet lip butter! In fact, buying this set opened my eyes to how awesome the Lip Butters are! I also bought 4 of the Just Bitten balm/stains – I have Lovesick, Sweetheart, Honey and Rendevous – i love them so much!
I also FINALLY found the new Rimmel Apocolips lip colors – they are a hybrid gloss/lipstick that is super pigmented and provide full coverage. I bought Apocolips,Stellar and another shade – the name escapes me. for only 5 bucks a pop, they are an excellent product!

Weekend plans – hanging out with friends tonight, working a little on Saturday and going to see The Purge asap!

Normal wake up time is around 7am, i try to get to sleep by 10 or 10:30 pm. but i stay up late and sleep in whenever possible!

Weekend plans: Don’t know actually, like to get back to working on my projects.

What time do you normally wake up and go to bed?: Around midnight then 7:45am.

no haul, but I have my eye on Maybelline Vivids Brazen Berry so that’ll probably be my next purchase (my birthday is coming up, so i’ll probably have some money from that!) i’ve been so crazy for purple lipsticks and i’m verrrryyy cool toned so it’ll probably end up looking really purple on me! an Ulta just opened nearby so i’m hoping they have testers there. 8)

no set weekend plans, either! probably gonna work on some art. sketches and colored pencil most likely. i want to do a little more plein air painting but it’s supposed to rain all weekend. 8(

aaaaaaand i’ve been sleeping from like… 5am to 1pm lately. whoops. the joys of unemployment, i suppose.

I love the dog picture, very sweet!

I ordered some things from Sleek. I got Suede blush, Mirrored Pink blush, Pixie Pink blush, the new Sweet Cheeks blush palette (can you tell I have a bit of a blush addiction), the Lagoon palette, and Cotton Candy palette.

Nothing planned for the weekend, unfortunately. Dentist appointment tomorrow…perfect way to ruin my Saturday :/

I wake up at 5 a.m. and try to go to bed by 10 p.m.

Haul: On Sunday, I saw my Walgreens was clearing out what they had left of the Maybelline spring limited edition collection for under $2 a piece. So I ended up taking home two color sensational vivids in pop of cherry and orange edge, one eye studio color plush silk eyeshadow set in electric emerald, two color sensational lip gloss in mirrored plum and fiercely fuchsia, and one blush in coral burst.

I think on Tuesday, I picked up Revlon’s colorburst lip butter in sorbet, color stay ultimate suede in trendsetter, and just bitten kissable in sweetheart valentine. I also nabbed L’oreal’s infallible the super slim eyeliner.

Yesterday, ended up getting Rimmel’s show off lip lacquer in apocaliptic, nova, celestial, out of this world, aurora, luna, stellar, and big bang.

Today, I recieved Urban Decay’s ammo palette in the old formula and mariposa palette due to the current sale, plus the eyeshadow primer potion. This was the first UD purchase I have made. (Totally tardy to this party.)

Weekend Plans: Cleaning the house since my sister is coming to visit.

Bedtime: I usually try to go to bed at 11PM, but I find myself going to bed at 1AM instead. XD Usually I get up around 8AM, sometimes 9AM.

Haul: MAC Oh Hold and Plumful

Weekend Plans: Seeing The Internship with my sister, a run on the beach on Sunday.

Sleep: I try to be in bed by midnight, although that usually stretches to 1 AM. My alarm goes off at 7:15 and I hit snooze repeatedly until 7:45 or 8:00.

Haul: I got a set of Milani Naturally Chic Shadow Eyez 12 hour shadow pencils, Sephora’s Cream Lip Stain in Always Red, Nyx Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Coffee and a few Nyx blushes to get ready for my weekend plans.

Weekend Plans: one dress rehearsal and four dance recitals with my 8 year old, who will be wearing nearly bullet proof makeup to get through multiple costume changes! There’s a pict on Instagram (AndiLocks) if you want to peek!

I’m usually asleep by 11 pm, and I’m up at 5:30 am on weekedays, 7-8 am on weekends depending on kids schedules. But I’d sleep until 9 if I had my say!

I haven’t seen the Naturally Chic ones, but I liked the few I’ve tried so far. Hope you like ’em, Andi!

Weekend plans: Barbecue some time on the weekend. Hopefully the sun will come out at some point…it’s been cool and rainy all week πŸ™

What time do you normally wake up and go to bed?: I’m up at 5 am to go to the gym before work and in bed between 10 and 11 pm depending on how tired I am.

Haul: I went a bit wild this week! My IT Cosmetics order arrived – a pressed powder foundation (love it), 2 brushes, one of which is a flat-top for the foundation (love them); a huge face compact – blush, bronzer and highlighter (totally love them), a weird lipgloss “lab sample” (like it well enough but I may already have lost it as it’s quite small) and an eye shadow trio (so “nude” as to be almost invisible). THEN, I went back to Sephora to purchase 2 more of their house brand eye liners in the colours Galaxy Girl and Driving in Malaysia. Both are so beautiful. Before I went, I got them to set aside a Tarte Aqualillies palette. I was unsure about buying it but I did and it is unbelievably wonderful. Even the blush, which I was sure would not work for me, is terrific.

Weekend plans: yoga at 5 pm (it’s 3:45 here now), followed by a nice dinner out with my husband; makeup shopping (SDM bonus points redemption) and yoga tomorrow then Sunday the family is getting together to help my MIL do some house repairs and get her yard, pool, etc. ready for summer.

Wake up and go to bed: I’m usually up at 5:30-ish am if not before. I teach and I do like getting to school early so an early rising is sort of key to being organized enough and relaxed enough to get out the door by 7:30. Weeknights, I like to be in bed by 10, though I often read or listen to an audio book to fall asleep.

Haul: lots of new stuff this week πŸ™‚ the urban decay mariposa palette (it was only $15!), the Lorac GLOgetter palette, a bedhead beach waver, 7 Essie nail polishes, and a Deborah Lippmann in mermaid’s dream.

weekend plans: my brother’s 23rd birthday is Saturday, so we’re having a family cookout for him. other than that, just relaxing and helping plan a vacation. πŸ™‚

what time do you like to go to bed/wake up?: my sleep is literally all over the place. lol what was my “normal” last week, is completely different this week.

Haul: Anastasia Brow Wiz in Ash Blonde and Fresh Seaberry Oil. Loving both of them! Before I would use brow powder but I like how the ultrathin pencil gives me more control.

Weekend plans: Enjoy the weather (yay for non-foggy SF days) and go to a friend’s housewarming party:

Wakeup time: 8:30 or so
Bedtime: 11:30 or so. I love sleep!

Haul: Almay foundation

Weekend plans: Work, wishing I wasn’t at work

Wake up/bed time: I am a night owl by nature, so if I’m in bed by 1am that’s early. I usually wake up about 11am unless I have an early shift.

Haul: Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Bronzed Heather, Beach and Citrus! I love them all!!
Weekend plans: Haven’t thought about it!
What time do you normally wake up and go to bed?: During school, lights out by 11pm, wake up 5:30-6am (depending how nice I want to look that day haha).

Haul: Wet n Wild Pressed Powder in Deep Tan, EcoTools brushes (foundation, eyeshadow), Sally Hansen CSM in Black and Blue.

Weekend plans: Seeing a friend tomorrow (and bringing her cheesecake brownies!)

What time do you normally wake up and go to bed?: If the next day is a work day, I’m in bed by 11pm and I wake up at 6am. If not, I go to bed around midnight-1am and get up at 8am.

Haul: I picked up a new Maybelline mascara (the one with the top and bottom lash wand) MAC Flamingo and Razzledazzler and Imperial Light cremesheen. Tarte BB Primer.
Weekend plans: Taking out the rest of my summer clothes as its now warming up in NYC.
What time do you normally wake up and go to bed?: I try to be in bed by 10:00 and lights out by 11pm, and then I like to wake up around 6am Mon-Fri 8am or later on the weekends depending what I did the night before.

Haul: Posted my haul on Instagram and tagged #freeforhaulfriday @temptalia πŸ™‚ I’m at @thedustinhunter – Thought this would be a fun way to do it πŸ™‚

Weekend plans: Get outside and enjoy the weather! COPY AND PASTE! Me too! Plus I’m hoping to film some True Blood inspired videos in time for the premiere πŸ™‚

What time do you normally wake up and go to bed?: 7am?! What IS that?! My sleep schedule depends on lots of things… what I’m doing and how tired I am being tops on the list. Sometimes I’m in bed by midnight, other times I’m up until 5am. In the summertime I need FAR less sleep than in the winter so I’m usually up by 10am or so. Otherwise I can easily sleep until noon. Zzzzzz…

Haul: I finally bought some Origins skincare I’ve been eyeing off for a while, – A Perfect World Skin Guardian and Night-a-mins Night Cream. I LOVE the APW serum – the difference it makes to my skin is unreal. Worth every dollar. I also bought bareminerals The Star Treatment on eBay! Now I’m waiting VERY impatiently for it to be delivered πŸ˜€

Weekend plans: I’m working this weekend, but other than that I’m staying in and resting, I’ve been feeling pretty overworked and stressed recently, need to take it easy.

What time do you normally wake up and go to bed?: I always go to bed too late – I SHOULD be heading to bed at 9pm and lights off/asleep by 10pm, because I need to be up at 6am! But I always stay up too late and then snooze!

Hahaha Mellan looks like he is trying to make himself as small as lamb chop! “See, he’s my friend, we match!”

I really love all my Origins stuff, but it IS my first foray into higher-end skincare. I would thoroughly recommend you at least TRY the A Perfect World Skin Guardian though, I can’t quite describe the difference it makes, but it’s impressive.
