Haul: So far, just the M.A.C. Toledo polish in Venus Red (since it’s being discontinued). Plan to haul a few items form the Yaz Bukey release whenever it’s available today…also really loving the early access to Stila’s Summer 2015 Collection – considering the Watercolor Blush in pink violet, the Stay All Day in Como (bright violet), and if I don’t get the Hourglass bronzer via Sephora early access, I’m considering the Aqua Glow.
Weekend Plans: Meeting my Mom for breakfast tomorrow. Then who knows!
Wishing everyone an awesome weekend!

weekend plans: helping my in-laws prepare their house for sale.
do you like to dance? YISS. So much.

I’m on a matte shadow kick lately… and my collection had previously been very lacking. And after getting the Rebound foursome and LOVING the formula, I went a little trigger happy on my shopping cart. Can’t beat the price though.
Today, I’m wearing Bill in the crease with Mittens on the lid, Doe-a-deer along the lash line and XO in the inner corner and brow bone highlight.

Haul: Guerlain kohl liner in Amber Silver. Just gorgeous.

Weekend Plans: Oh man…test on Monday, Biochem case study due Tuesday, two papers due Wednesday, a case presentation Thursday, a city justice meeting tomorrow, and my friends just called because the wife had to deliver via emergency C-section, so I stop in tomorrow to check on them. No rest for the weary!

Do you like to dance: haha, I would never suggest the natural world to my terrible dance moves.

Haul: MAC Industrial eye liner, Cyber World lip liner, and Pearl Blossom beauty powder. Also some foundation applicator wedges and makeup remover wipes for my future sister-in-law (I’m doing her makeup for the wedding, she doesn’t usually wear makeup so I’m supplying everything except her foundation).

Weekend Plans: I have a lunch date with my husband today, then we’re going to drop a huge load of stuff off at the thrift store and used book store. Spring Cleaning continues.

Do you like to dance? Well I was almost a professional ballerina, so yeah πŸ™‚

Haul: Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Cobalt Ink (really makes my warm brown eyes pop!), Clinique Lash Power Mascara (this one’s going back if I can find my receipt. It didn’t do much to my lashes, was a pain to remove, and flaked off like crazy and hurt my eyes).

Weekend Plans: Busy weekend! Date night tonight with the boyf, mani pedi tomorrow with my mom, my friend’s wedding on Sunday. She’s Armenian, so the food is going to be amazing! I’m so excited for it. Now to plan my MU!

Do you like to dance: I really wish I did. I just feel so awkward whenever I’m on a dance floor. I have absolutely no rhythm. But, for some reason, I can dance better when I’m sitting down lol.

I forgot, I’m also going to the Sephora Beauty Before Brunch Event on Sunday morning before the wedding. My friend is coming with me, so it’ll be fun!

Haul: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter Poured in Pearl and Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle in Fig/Opal. I’m going through a bit of a Becca phase. πŸ™‚
Weekend plans: Celebrating a friend’s birthday and hanging out with my sister, who just moved to town.
Do you like to dance?: Yup. It’s the reason I look forward to weddings!

Haul: Some cheap no-name lashes. Pretty sure they are exactly like Ardell Demi Wispies, though!
Weekend plans: I really should finish some school work I have but I doubt I’ll do it haha.
Do you like to dance?: Yes, I’ve been taking dance classes since I was 5! I dance modern dance right now, and I teach 4-5 year olds! I don’t want to make a career out of it, but it’s something I’m really passionate about.

HAUL: I may finally get to the mall HOORAY! We’ll see. Knowing me, I’ll just buy more wine!

Weekend: I may go to a party on Sunday. I only know one person and it’s a birthday party for someone I don’t know. My husband is working, so that is why I may go to the mall. He’s finally not around to stop me or spend all of our discretionary funds on his HUGE video game habit.

Dancing: Yes, love it. When I was younger before I injured my legs, I used to go out 2-3 nights a week. I was also in a belly dance troupe. I’m still ok at dancing it just really hurts to accomplish. It’s one of the things I miss the most in life as it was the only way I could express myself and work out all my stress.

Haul from the last couple of weeks: UD Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation, a Wet and Wild palette (Vegan Culture from the Silverlake LE, it’s more hit than miss) and a medium sized Colourpop order. Shadows in: Partridge, So Quiche, Mittens and 3, and Lippie Stix in: Lumiere and Bichette, also the lip liner in Bichette.
Weekend Plans: Baseball game on Saturday and just generally trying to get rid of this cold.
Dancing: I really like dancing, though I don’t go out to clubs any more. I still dance around the house a lot.

ColourPoppppp! It’s really cool to see it in so many hauls. They have some great products that are affordable, and it feels like we’re all sharing in the joy of that!

Feel better, Telesilla!!

Haul: MAC is Beauty Lipstick in Make Me Gorgeous, Silly and Diva-ish.

Weekend plans: Not sure, other than catch the new Game of Thrones.

Do you like to dance?: No, but I love dance music.

I love how Mellan’s smiling for the camera.

Haul: Deborah Lippmann Calypso nail polish set (Mermaid’s Dream and Flowers in Her Hair in little mermaid glitter bag.)

Plans: out to eat with the family and maybe a movie too

Dancing: I like to dance, but, I’m not good at it, so I restrict it to weddings only πŸ™‚

Awww!!! Look at that great big smile on his beautiful face! Love ya Mellan!
Haul: A bunch of MAC stuff: Mia Moretti Summer Wind CCB, Maria Moretti lipstick, Siahi Fluidline, Reel Sexy and Make Me Gorgeous lipsticks.

Weekend plans: hair, nails, laundry ( a virtual ton! ), meeting on Sunday.
Do you like to dance? : Oh yes, I absolutely love dancing! It helps me stay flexible and to keep in shape to some degree, not an easy feat at 56 y.o.!

Mellan is so cool. Love the beauty mark on his ear.
Haul: some of the Mac fluidlines: Blitz & Glitz, Waveline, Siahi, Shade and Looking Good. Bought the 267 brush and the Doll Me Up mint colored nail polish. Went to Makeup Forever store and bought the extra large magnetic eyeshadow case – I’m addicted to the Artist Shadows and my collection is expanding.

Weekend relaxing with the family.
I love to dance – parties, family gatherings, home, Zumba! Dancing is one of life’s joys.

Oooh, that reminds me I need to go check if those other brushes came in stock (they were coming soon before) from MAC is Beauty!

Thanks for that πŸ˜‰

Haul: Three of the LA Girl Pro concealers in Fawn, Medium Beige and Warm Honey.

Weekend plans: Finish my taxes, take some photos to edit later for blog posts and maybe bake a lemon-blueberry cake.

Do you like to dance?: No, because it’s embarrassing. Lol. I do want to learn how to tap dance.

I broke my no buy but it was totally worth it, we have a company store near my work. I bought warm soul mineralize blush, from Clinique bronzer in sunswept,fashion punch lipglass, uber nude lipstick and slopes lip pencil from Bobbi brown. I think that should last me a while.
For the weekend window shop and start spring cleaning. I like to dance. I listen to music while I clean so I dance around a little when I’m cleaning.
