BFFs!!

Haul: Laura Geller Balance and Brighten foundation, got the Hourglass blush palette (but I’m returning it) and I’m getting the It Cosmetics gel eye liners today at Ulta
Weekend plans: Big E again! Sunday I have to pack for next week’s mini birthday vacation. Print pictures for door decorations and make my ABC costume for my cruise in October! Hopefully booking my tickets to LA for November. Busy busy bee
Favorite ice cream flavor?: Vanilla or Coffee

I didn’t end up using it. I am trying to pair down my collection. I probably have things that are similar enough in my collection that I don’t need it all in one palette. Nice to have but not a must for me.

Haul: I’ve been very good about not buying makeup so I can save for LA IMATS. Plane tickets are not cheap! All I did was buy new cleanser (CeraVe Hydrating) because I’ve run out of cleanser. Replacing empty necessities are allowed. And cleaning my face is necessary! And Lypsyl lip balms are 99c at Walgreens this month, so I used change to pick one of those up since I’m almost out of Jack Black and that’s expensive. (Long answer. Just… justifying my purchases here, lol.)

Weekend plans: I’m hoping to start filming my Deaf Awareness Week video which I’ve been trying to plan all week and should’ve already started filming since the week is THIS WEEK, but I’ve been sick with a cold and now, I’m going through the hack coughing phase so even that’s a filming issue. So I might just stick with editing my September Favourites and filming the rest of my lipstick collection since I mute that and just put in music anyway. And then keep checking my list for my video to make sure I have everything.

Favorite ice cream flavor?: Coffee and mint chocolate chip!

Haul: A bunch of indies. Some Cocoa Pink hair products, Deconstructing Eden perfumes, Life’s Entropy test tubes (like the mix-your-own OCC lip tar idea, but affordable), nail polishes by Indigo Bananas and KBShimer, and the Dryades collection by Aromaleigh (which has been wonderful since new management took over).

Weekend plans: heading down to the Outer Banks for family vacation. Well. They get a vacation. I get to look at the beach from our beach house while I work on Halloween jewelry, because I am too busy for a vacation right now.

Favorite ice cream flavor?: Mint chocolate chip or chocolate chocolate chip!

Haul: OCC Lip Tar Stained Gloss Trio Set and Sephora Favorites Summerstash from Sephora.

Weekend plans: Going to Uplugged Expo on Sturday to take photo’s basically of my costume. I wonder if I should visit the Sephora in the Eaton Centre to freak people out while in costume. lol

Favorite ice cream flavor?: Jamoca Almond Fudge from Baskin Robbins. I basically like anything with chocolate or peanuts butter though. lol

Haul: Cannot believe its friday already! πŸ˜€ Got myself a dresser finally! Like an hour back! So excited! πŸ™‚

Weekend plans: Re arranging the house, cleaning up and a little more home shopping!

Favorite ice cream flavor?: Mango!

Haul: I got two of Tarte’s Butter Lipsticks, and I’m really loving them.
Weekend plans: I am starting my work-sample for student teaching on Monday, so I have some preparation things to do.
Favorite ice cream flavor?: World Class Chocolate from Baskin ‘n Robbins

My Tom Ford Silvered Topaz quad came in! I LOVE it. The quality is fantastic.

I also managed to get ahold of Nude Dip, but it doesn’t ship until Sept 30th. It actually looks as though I may be getting my original order through Nordstrom as well, but that one is going to somebody I know that got her order cancelled on her.

So so cute, 2 gorgeous labs! Hugs and kisses for Mellan from the boys and me.
No haul this week
Taking the boys to the park Sat and Sun go see the movie The Equalizer.
Strawberry.

Have a great weekend Christine.

I love the idea of dual labs (which you enjoy, I know, haha!), though I think I am more a one-dog kind of gal at the end of the day.

Haul: NYX soft matte lip creams to increase my collection – shades: Copenhagen, Transylvania, Zurique, Prague and Ibiza; Nyx butter lipsticks in Pops and Hunk; Nyx blotting powder and Nyx Minaral Stick Foundation, pick a dark color cause IΒ΄m planning to use as a contour.

Weekend plans: Stay in home, catch up american fall season series. So many great new shows!

Favorite ice cream flavor?: Chocolate

Haul: a few Zoya nail polishes should arrive today, hair products.

Weekend plans: Bridal shower for my best friend on Sunday.

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor: I think just plain Vanilla but Strawberry is a close second.

Haul : Tarte Pin Up Blush Palette, Chanel JC Blush Jersey, Preordered chanel Camelia de Plumes Highlighter for Holidays
weekend Plans: Nothing yet! probably Library & Grocery shopping
Fav Ice Cream Flavour: Pistachio, Strawberry, Almond Fudge!

I have been feeling uninterested in everything lately. Felt disappointed about the Gucci products and so the only thing I got was Nars Audrey Lipstick. Oh, yeah, I got two of their eyeshadows…Desdemona and Andromeda. I keep buying Nars for some reason.
No plans for this weekend but trying to relax a bit. Stress is going to kill me. Planning on return to my yoga routine for the same reason.
Favorite flavour… Raspberry sorbet, green tea, and orange with ginger. Dulce de leche too.

Are you enjoying your new NARS bits and bobs, at least, Andrea?

Glad you’ll have sometime to relax this weekend – yoga should help for sure!

Yes I have… Is weird cause I kinda hate Nars, but keep getting stuff and loving them, so I guess is winning me over.
I worry too much, I take everything too seriously and finally my body gave me the bill over it. Badly… So either I chill, either I chill. Yoga has helped before, so will change my rutine so I can enjoy at least 45 minutes to myself every morning before the sunrise… Is a little effort, but I think is worthy. Thanks for asking, honey. I guess it was a wake up call. And am happy it happened now and like this.

Haul: Too Faced La Bella Carousel set! I haven’t been doing much hauling this week due to being sick.

Weekend Plans: Hmmm I’m not sure! I’m supposed to go to a party my dad is holding, but since I’m sick, I don’t know if being around a bunch of people would be good. But I also might be going for dinner at my mother’s friend’s house. Big family weekend, really.

Ice Cream Flavor: Vanilla Butterfinger. Guilty pleasure, haha. ^-^

Haul:
Bras * Sephora glitz n glam set * kat von d mascara/liner set * mac boutique lipstick * urban decay lipstas set.

Weekend plans:
Movies & comedy show

Favorite ice cream:
1/2 scoop of butter pecan & pistachio sprinkled w/ dark chocolate

Yay going to be with the boyfriend this weekend. He’s gonna pick me up and we’re going to grab some pho mmm.
Also excited about doing some wedding makeup next weekend. So excited, I’m getting anxiety over it hah.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! It’s finally starting to feel “crisp” outside. Although, it is Louisiana so idk how long that’ll last.

Double the adorability!

Haul: Ambient Blush palette, Clinique Black Honey Affair eyeshadow palette, Julie Hewett eyeshadow palette in Swept Away (exclusive to Cult Beauty), and ordered some things from the new Illamasqua collection which have to yet to arrive. And I just ordered the red Louboutin nail polish!

Weekend plans: Continuing to work on the website I’m developing, volunteering at the Humane Society with the husband, and cleaning my bathroom – it’s reached critical mass! :-p

Favorite ice cream flavor?: A hot fudge sundae!

LOL! My husband is 1) thankful that most of my makeup is in a secondary bathroom, 2) we have a lot of counter space and two sinks, so that he can have his area clean.

Haul: I did some major damage by my standards! Finally got my my first sephora online order which took about two weeks. It included sephora pro precision blush brush 73 and a pro concealer brush blus a bonus smashbox bb cream sample I can’t wait to try. From MAC: Mineralize skin finish, pro longwear eyeliner in β€œrich experience,” pro long wear concealer, rebel lipstick and Rihanna viva glam 2 gloss (which went so great with rebel!). I tried to buy a NARS audacious lipstick but about half of them (including Anna) were sold out at two different sephora locations. Maybe that will be next week when the hourglass blush palette becomes available to everyone!

Weekend plans: cleaning and organizing to get wedding gifts put away πŸ™‚ And start plotting Christmas gifts.. I want to buy the UD lipstick set for someone since I have too many already!

Favourite ice cream flavour: Caramel pecan

I think the Mineralize powder and the gloss. They’re both going to get a lot of use. Although I’m just starting to buy my first nice brushes and they’re all such game changers! πŸ™‚

Haul: Not a thing so far (there’s always tomorrow!)
Weekend: Taking advantage of Free Museum Day to visit the Museum of Fine Arts up in Boston. And if I happen to run into a Sephora along the way, well!
Ice cream: dulce de leche, salted caramel, vanilla

Labs are the best! Looking at Mellan’s pics always reminds me of my own yellow labby, who is also an American Lab and has a birthmark/freckle on her forehead πŸ™‚

Haul: Hourglass Ambient Blush palette, Tarte Pin Up Girl Blush Palette, and Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream perfume!
Weekend Plans: cooking for my husband and double dating with friends.
Favorite Ice Cream Flavor: plain chocolate all the way πŸ™‚

Awwww!! πŸ˜€ I haven’t come across another lab with the freckle! Mellan also has a huge black spot on his tongue (scared me when I first noticed it, lol!)!

Awwwww, what gorgeous doggies! Look at those eyes. I want to cuddle them.

Haul: L’oreal Silkissime eyeliners. Lorac Pro Palette2 (you were right Christine, I like the texture of these shadows much better than the Skinny palettes), Nyx lip gloss, Soap and Glory dry skin cream, various skin- and hair care deluxe samples.

Weekend plans: Nothing exciting, just the usual weekend errands and cleaning.

Favorite ice cream flavor?: Anything chocolate (except Dutch choc.flavor or cheap brands) and Butter Pecan.

Ha, ha, ha. You “sound” so relieved. You’re adorable.

I’m glad Lorac can live up to their rep. I actually bought the Plum Skinny palette, because: plum and burgundy. It actually had a good texture, too. Not as good as Pro2, but oodles better than Skinny and Navy Skinny (not that they were terrible). If I do Lorac in the future, I think I’ll stick with their regular offerings, though, and not promotional stuff like the Skinnies.

One of my big fears with blogging about products that people may actually buy is just the idea that someone may buy something off my recommendation and HATE IT! and I know that it comes with the territory and that sometimes it happens (I hate things that others love, so I know how it goes). But… I don’t want anyone to waste their money!

I don’t have the Plum one, though I liked the neutral one. Didn’t like Navy – definitely felt like a cheaper offering.

Oh, gosh, I would never get mad at any one about something like that. I got a good deal on the Pro2, and I wanted to try it. No one is responsible for what I buy but me.

Haul: MUFE HD Blush (225), Shiseido Eyelash Curler
Weekend plans: Get some rest and look for some really, really easy recipes to add some variety to our meals! (I’m by no means the best cook out there…)
Favorite ice cream flavor: Chocolate! The darker the better πŸ™‚ !

Thank you for sharing this adorable pic of Mellan and his brother! Mellan always brightens up my Fridays and another cute lab makes it even better πŸ˜€ !

Favorite ice cream flavor?: Nutella!

Haul: I got quite a few nail polishes from Sinful Colors’ Halloween collection. (surprisingly good formula for $2 a pop) I also took the plunge and got Vice 3! but my favorite haul this week, is I adopted two little kittens! They just turned 8 weeks old today and I’m in LOVE

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor: my mom makes the most bomb chocolate ice cream!

Haul: I don’t think I got anything this week πŸ™‚
Weekend plans: Relax tonight & girls games night tomorrow!
Favorite ice cream flavor?: Chocolate chip cookie dough or a Skor flurry!

Yes, it is. I just received it yesterday (ordered it online), and on first impressions, I’m loving it so far. It’s quite dense and tapered. The handle is a decent mostly even weight. The handle looks a bit like tom ford’s brush handles.

Haul: Two Makeup Forever Eyeshadows (Reptile #628 and Taupe Grey #S556), MAC Captive lipstick (how have I missed having this in my collection), Sephora Matte Green Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner and a new serum from Jouviance, a fabulous Canadian skincare company. Also got my birthday prezzie from Sephora, which was a nice little treat and a few great samples of fragrances from Aerin.

Weekend plans: not too much – just the gym and yoga and maybe making a big batch of soup and a big batch of chili

Favourite ice cream flavour: Pralines and Cream

Haul: UD Full Frontal lipstick set, 24/7 liner in Desperation, and a couple Lush bath bombs
Weekend plans: Going to do some fall cleaning
Favorite ice cream: Ben & Jerry’s Coffee Heath Bar

I love the labs! I have 2 black labs, one is a mastiff mix but he looks more lab, and it’s so fun to have a matched set πŸ™‚

Haul: Nothing this week – maybe I’m saving up for that MJ eyeliner set… >_>

Weekend Plans: Tutoring, Ballet, Thesis. IN that order, possibly. Sunday is my first wedding anniversary, so the wizard and I are going to go our for brunch! πŸ˜€

Favourite flavour of ice cream: probably boysenberry or hokey pokey (good Kiwi kid that I am, LOL!)

Haul: Got some Morrocanoil hair cream for wavy/curly hair which I’m using for the first time today. Hard to say if its working or not as my hair is still damp (as i write). Am quietly optimistic as my hair is fine (but there’s a lot of it) and usually by now my mop has started to morph into a dandelion but…. so far my curls seem to be defined without the frizz. Long may this last! Also got an eyeshadow quad from Chanel the name of which escapes me but its got some silver, a shimmery green and an even darker green in it as well as a pink.
Weekend Plans: Got some friends coming to stay for a week. Will be frantically running about house dusting,tidying and vacuuming. Must check cutlery drawer to see if there are any crumbs in it! (don’t you hate when that happens!)
Favourite ice cream flavour: As a child growing up in the UK it used to be Tutti Frutti but as it doesn’t seem to be around anymore (certainly not here in NZ anyway) I’d go with Mint Choc Chip flavour!

Denise, is it the Tisse Venetien quad that you got? (from your description, it sounds like it). If I get one more (I got Rivoli and Gabrielle, which is my fave), it will be Venetien. The colours are so lovely.

Thats the one! I tried it out yesterday; it looks lovely for during the day and if you put the darker colour on – it morphs into something nice for night.
Glad I got it!

Haul: Vice3. A couple vintage UD lipsticks from ebay.

Weekend Plans: Going to a screening of The Last Unicorn where I get to meet Peter S Beagle!

Favorite ice cream flavor: Ben & Jerry’s chocolate fudge brownie and chubby hubby.

Omg!! I am both so HAPPY to see another appreciate The Last Unicorn, and I’m super jealous, though happy for you, that you get to go to a screening where you’ll meet Peter S. Beagle! Mazing book transformed perfection into a favorite movie of mine where the most beautiful Russian and Japanese animators work together to bring such a life affirming story to, well, life! Enjoy!!!!!!!!! Are you in the USA, may I ask? (I caved with vice 3 too, I love it. What do you think?) πŸ™‚
Lotus

HAUL: I went a bit crazy on the ColourPop site and ordered 14 more shadows. They’re so pretty I couldn’t resist. Urban Decay’s Crash and a backup of Sabbath were added to the collection. I also bought some Stila lip pencils and Butter London’s Hen Party.

Weekend plans: Cleaning, laundry, and going to see The Equalizer

Favorite Ice Cream: Baskin and Robbin’ s Lemon Chiffon, Mitchell’s Banana Cream Pie and anyone’s Peanut Butter.

Haul: Marc Jacobs eyeliner set, Sephora eyeliner set (Youtubers are right – that Kat Von D pen makes liquid liners so much easier!), Charlotte Tilbury lip liner in Pillow Talk, Mac 217 (my first!), Mac Deep Damsom, Cranberry and Antiqued, Urban Decay Last Call eyeshadow, Nars Desdemona eyeshadow and Phoebe. Apparently I have a Plum addiction and it just won’t stop πŸ™‚

Weekend: Doing the good things in life, eating out, sleeping in, spending time with the husband πŸ™‚

Ice Cream: Raspberry and Lemon

Haul: Nope, saving up money for holiday sets? Well saving money. πŸ˜›
Plans: Family BBQ.
Favorite Ice Cream Flavors: I WANT ALL THE FLAVORS! Ok, narrowing it down… my all time favorite is Strawberry, but my recent favorite has been mint chocolate chip. I do like mango ice cream, but only from one particular shop in my hometown. I also love Love Potion from Baskin Robbins, seasonal flavor.

Haul: Marc Jacobs hi liner holiday collection.
Weekend: Celebrating my Mom’s birthday!
Favorite ice cream: Butter pecan. Ummm, yummy.

Haul: Sinful Colors Splatter Spell and Pumpkin Spice nail polishes, WnW MegaLast nail polishes in Echo Dark and Breaking the Ice, WnW Fergie nail polish in Going Platinum and WnW Balm Stain in Lady is a Vamp.

Weekend plans: Massive amounts of homework completion, creating a PowerPoint presentation on prominent Saudi women for my Wednesday night class, and possibly baking something yummy. Maybe strawberry thumbprints with white chocolate drizzle.

Favorite ice cream flavor: Cookies n cream or a really nice vanilla. Stonyfield Farms Organic makes a flavor called Very Very Vanilla which is my favorite vanilla ice cream.

Haul: I ordered some Makeup Geek eyeshadows yesterday, and I’ll be placing orders through Sephora and Nordstrom, too (mix of haircare, skincare, nail polish, and makeup).

Weekend: Going to a wedding ceremony and reception tomorrow (the couple in question are already married; this is more for their family and friends et al).

Fave ice cream flavour: Chocolate! (Haagen-Dasz or Breyers.)

It’s so hard to type anything, when you keep going back to mellan + that adorable teenager. They are yellow perfection. One of my coworkers was at a restraint training recert today + showed me a pic of her new chocolate. She had to put her young GR down in Dec + they didn’t make the year’s mourning. The chocolate is a rehome via her GR’s therapy dog organization, belonged to a family that had to move out of the country + did not want to put the dog through the quarantine. Her great luck!

No buys, but RHPS is coming soon! My dogs like any flavor (except restricted chocolate,) but they usually get frosty paws. My overall favorite is coffee, followed closely by chocolate. But strawberry, when it is homemade, is heavenly. Trader Joe’s brought me back to vanilla. Theirs rules. oddly enough, i just don’t care for the TJ chocolate ice cream, (but go for the big Belgian bars + the chocolate pudding instead.) Forget mooning about RHPS, i think i’m up for a Trader Joe’s sweets haul! Yeah!!!

Haul: Nars lipgloss in Easy lover,Wonder and Louise Young brush LY34(super foundation),Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat lash mascara,Philosophy purity made simple one-step facial cleaner
Weekend plans: BBQ party at my family house
Favorite icecream: chocolate or lemon

Haul: We went to Solvang yesterday and I bought a tiny angel carved out of what appears to be moonstone, a small, black lucky cat with a gold… dragon?… on its tummy, a cute, little, cloisonne and metal lucky fish that wiggles when it dangles, and a Slap Chop to make the chopping of ingredients (the parsely!!!) for Swedish Meatballs a little easier. Oh… and I also bought the Smashbox
Santigolden Age Eye Shadow Collage in Apocalypse Now (haven’t opened it yet), a Sephora eyeliner in Surfer Babe, six of the Milani Belle Eyes shadows, and two L’Oreal liners.

Weekend plans: NOTHING!! I’m going to be resting and recovering from all the activities this past week! It was nice meeting and getting to know my oldest daughter’s boyfriend. We REALLY like him! He fit in perfectly with the family… which means he’s a bit goofy, too! =)

Favorite ice cream flavor?: Coffee Toffee from Doc Burnstein’s Ice Cream Lab.

Haul: I bought a Revlon Colorstay eye liner in Jade, and really liked it! The color is more of a deep olive green than what I would call jade, but it has a sharpener on the end as well as a smudge sponge thingy. I had a coupon for free mascara with the purchase of the eye liner, so I got a tube of Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara, haven’t opened it yet but I can always use another mascara. My favorite product of the week was unexpected. Milani Cosmetics is having a 30 day contest for their new eye shadow line, you can enter the contest every day by answering a trivia question and then they pick 300 winners per day to get the color of the day. I actually won at some point this month, I got the mail and was surprised to find a package containing a new eye shadow! It is Bella Khaki, probably not a color I would have bought but surprisingly good. It is a deep olive green with lots of gold in it, and their new formula is wonderful, richly pigmented and buttery soft. I was really impressed with this eye shadow, and have a list of colors I am planning to pick up on my next trip to Walgreens or CVS, depending on who has it on sale this week. πŸ™‚
Weekend plans: working, trying to catch up on sleep although I am always behind.
Favorite ice cream flavor?: Mint chocolate chip at the moment!

Haul: Still on my makeup no-buy, still 4 days to go. I am tempted to buy a berry nailpolish.
Weekend plans: Family Lunch on Sunday and the usual on Saturday including deepcleansing my new bathroom.
Favorite ice cream flavor?: Macadamia nut brittle and Stracchiatella

Haul: Milani’s Bella Eyeshadow in Bella Khaki (I already have Bella Taupe) and a Color Statement polish in Mauveing Forward. I’m waiting to get my order of theBalm items from HauteLook. 1/3 of my order shipped today…woo hoo!

Weekend plans: spend time with my fiancΓ© during his birthday weekend! (Dinner date last night, spa day today)

Fave ice cream flavor: butter pecan!

I got the Dior 5 Couleurs Pied de Poule palette– new– but at a nice discount on EB. Sprang for the Armani Brow Maestro in Light Brown and loving it. My brows are so light that anything darker looks grim. Got Marc Jacobs blush in Shameless which is light and working better with the deeper eye makeup of fall.

Weekend plans: Just drove up for to the ocean for a week off season. Lots of work projects to do.

Ice cream favorites: Coffee and Mint Chip and I also love those Vanilla and chocolate swirl soft serves.

Mellan is so handsome! ^_^ <3!

Haul: Marc Jacobs Parisienne palette, a lot of Korean skincare & fun makeup to try, with benefits, Rhianna viva glam 2, both items, my NARS Jardin Perdu arrived, πŸ™‚ , IOPE cushion, a cushion from most places with different benefits to try, the entire tonymoly petit bunny gloss bar line, lip tints and creams in LE fun colors.. So much, and many lovely samples!
Weekend plans: Handle the monthly period, it's a KILLER, try to catch up with some friends, sleep, read, look for more books, and watch movies.. Eat.. Drink.. No alcohol though. (I'm quite anti-alcohol. Very few exceptions..)
Favorite ice cream flavor?: It's not ice cream, but similar section.. Guanabana sorbet! And I love pure coconut ice milk πŸ™‚

Have a beautiful weekend, everyone! Take care & be well! πŸ™‚

Oh, Christine, it’s perfect! πŸ˜€ As his shades are, there’s a surprisingly amazing complex & uniqueness to every stunning color! I feel I really would like them all! (Want, not need, this as a favorite for sure!) Iridescence of the unicorn unicorn colors are making their ways back! (They never left) πŸ™‚ <3 xoxo

A bit late with my net social life, trying to catch up. I guess that’s part of my weekend plan along with cleaning, some of it done, did the oven yesterday. Not fun, but one has to do it. Other than that, I have to pay the bills. Scary, that πŸ™‚
Haul, nothing this week, trying to save up for the important hauls of NARS lipsticks, MUFE eyeshadows and MAC LEs along with holiday sets.
Ice cream, chocolate, or vanilla with chocolate added in some form.

Lovely photo of Mellan and his brother!
