Haul: Absolutely nothing. That last haul I did (nail polish fever) nearly took me out. But next week, it’s definitely going to be on. I’m possibly going to “haul out” beyond comprehension. lol!

Weekend Plans: Aside from a little studying for my final exams that are up in twelve days and helping out one of my cousins, I plan on doing some reading: a book by Shanda Freeman, a sweet woman I greatly admire; some Maya Angelou, specifically her book titled “Mom & Me & Mom”; and a Batman comic (my love for the Dark Knight shall never ebb). Random, I know. πŸ™‚

How do you like to spend a rainy day?: Reading, especially anything Batman-related, with a cup of delicious hot cocoa situated to my right. For some reason, reading on a rainy day not only boosts my imagination but it relaxes me.

Off-topic: Mellan is sooo sickeningly cute; makes me miss my beloved red Chow-Chow, Terry. R.I.P. Terry!

In terms of cosmetics, a mountain load of lipsticks (both luxury and drugstore brand), lip liners, bath products, and lotions since I was able to actually negotiate with my family about the “no more lipsticks” clause. Lol! The non-cosmetic products that I’ll also be getting will only make the mountain of items I get surpass the height of Mount Everest. πŸ™‚

I miss Terry so much. πŸ™ It’s worse when I think of how long I was lied to by my family concerning his “disappearance” (more like his murder; he was ran over by a vehicle. I only learned of this a few months ago). Seeing Mellan just makes me smile because, based off pictures of him, he reminds me so much of my little puffball of a dog.

Haul: Laura Mercier Mini Caviar Stick Set (the 6 set). I used it today for the first time and I’m loving it! I also picked up the Anastasia Dip Brow. I wanted to try this and compare it to my beloved Tarte Brow Mousse. The Dip Brow just doesn’t compare. My brows look so much more natural with the Tarte Brow Mousse!

Weekend Plans: Finish redecorating and painting our guest bathroom, hang new mirrors, etc.

How do you spend a rainy day? Reading with a cup of coffee!

Haul: I bought 3 tubes of NARS Creamy Concealer in Caramel (I love this product, but I wish NARS would come up with better packaging. The current packaging doesn’t let me scrape out what’s at the bottom.), NARS Audacious lipstick in Leslie, Too Faced La Creme lipstick in Pink Chocolate, bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie lipstick in Lead the Way, Sephora Rouge Cream lipstick in Courtisane.

Weekend plans: Writing drafts for my papers, and my friend’s 30th birthday at Laduree.

How do you like to spend a rainy day?: At home reading a fantasy novel while drinking a cup of hot tea.

Haul: Nothing! Although I do need to place an order at Ulta…planning on getting the Chi travel hair set and a few essentials like toner
Weekend plans: Unpacking from last weekend :*( laundry and washing brushes. I’m still in recovery mode. Took me longer to adjust to from west coast time to east coast time than I expected
How do you like to spend a rainy day?: Watching shows or reading books

Chanel coco rouge shine in Scenario #83(because of your review), Mac lipstick x1(BTM).
Relax and watch some movies.
I agree, inside with 2 labs around me playing around.

A big hug for the gorgeous Mellan from me and the boys. Have a great weekend.

Awwww, Mellan looks so dapper in a top hat! All that’s missing is a bow tie.

Haul: a cleanser and a moisturizer from L’Occitane and some clothes.

Weekend plans: Drag my fiancΓ© on a photoshoot for a fashion post. He doesn’t know it yet though.

How do you like to spend a rainy day?: Anywhere but IN it.

Haul: NARS matte lipstick in Valparaiso, NARS lipgloss in Corsica. I gave up any hope of a sale for us regular BIs and just ordered away!
Weekend plans: PT for my painful shins, a birthday party for one of my nieces on Sunday
How do you like to spend a rainy day?: Inside with a cup of tea and a stack of magazines!

Haul: Charlotte Tilbury The Rock Chick and The Uptown Girl eyeshadow quads, Sonia Kashuk Holiday brush set, Dior Candy Choc eyeshadow quint, MAC Pink and Plum lipglass holiday set, and the Estee Lauder EE Cream in Medium πŸ™‚

Weekend Plans: I’m working my butt off this weekend! The office is getting crazy and I need to catch up.

Rainy Day: I love to spend it with a few things: Mac n cheese, the boyfriend, a very thick blanket, and Netflix.

I’ve just tried everything but the CT stuff (that’s arriving Monday), and I have to say I’m loving the EE Cream, Rags to Riches Dazzleglass, and the light peach color in the Dior quint!

I’m always a huge sucker for the MAC holiday sets πŸ™‚

Which SK brush set did you get? The white/gold ferrules/handles with the white hair?! I saw that last weekend and was going to pick it up BUT the only set left was opened & stained…:(

Haul: Estee Lauder Pure color eyeshadow in Sizzling Copper,Lorac the royal lip creme set,Formula X the ombre glitters in Devious,Caudalie Grape water face mist,Koh Gen Do cleansing spa water cloths,Makeup For Ever Rouge Artist intense#39,Lancome L’absolu rouge lipstick in classique
Weekend plan: relex maybe some work out
How do you like to spend a rainy day?: cuddle with my dogs and wath some series πŸ˜‰

Hahaha why don’t I think Mellan is pleased with that top hat? πŸ˜‰

Haul: Restocked on NUXE Reve de Miel lip balm and Caudalie Vinosource Moisture Recovery Cream. Winter is nigh. Brace yourselves!

Weekend plans: Going shopping with a girlfriend in an outlet village tomorrow! Most probably writing posts and so on on Sunday.

How do you like to spend a rainy day?: Staying home with the cats!

Haul: I went crazy during the VIB sale at Sephora and orders have just started to show this week. Many items were gifts for Christmas but I bought myself Dolce & Gabbana Bronzers and a Highlighter (left a comment on another post about those LOL), a foundation from Givenchy (if there is ONE brand that I WANT to love but never do…) and the dark and medium shades of Meteorites from Guerlain (I have this crazy idea of separating all the perles by color and making my own perfect shades of Meteorites for setting powder, bronzing and blush). I also got about 20 Jack Black Lip Balms, some YSL eyeshadow palettes I’ve wanted to try for awhile, that new Smashbox VIB Rouge palette thingy along with the VIB Rouge version of YSL’s Touche Eclat, a bunch of stuff from Tory Burch (which hasn’t gotten great reviews but the packaging is TOO cute so I want to take a peek, if I hate it I’ll just send it back). I also got (I’m typing fast and trying not to look back and total this up in my head OMG) 4 more blushes from Estee Lauder (I have almost all of them now and they’re my go-to blushes) and some of their lip pencils that I use all the time (Spice, in particular is AWESOME).

You think I would have been fine at that point but no… shopping at Sephora just seemed to warm me up and I headed for the finish line over at Neiman’s. Bought some Tom Ford things I cannot talk about (gifts) and got myself the Tuberose Gardenia fragrance from Estee (I LOVE gardenia! I like to smell like an old lady). I’ve yet to buy myself Tuscan Leather by Tom Ford but it’s been on my list for about two years now. I’m not going back though… I’m not. I’M NOT! Stop making me go back! LOL! I fully blame this time of year. Around the holidays I want to wear a pea coat and a scarf, carry around a hot drink in my gloved hands and spend lots… and lots… and LOTS… of money.

Oh and I also bought these nearly knee high black leather wedge boots at Nordstrom… but it was Nordstrom Rack so that’s okay.

Weekend plans: Obviously hitting the streets to make some money to pay the mortgage πŸ˜‰

How do you like to spend a rainy day?: Wearing a pea coat and a scarf, carrying around a hot drink in my gloved hands and spending lots… and lots… and LOTS… oh nevermind.

Bummer that the D&G powders were so poor. It is so sad when a luxury powder fails πŸ™

I look forward to hearing what you think of Tory Burch. I’m always skeptical of a brand who does one thing for the most part and then jumps into something else.

Did you see Tom Ford beard oils? Thought of you since I know you posted about beard oils before (though far and away cheaper than TF, I am sure!).

I love buying gifts for people, when I spy things I think they’ll love!

Yeah I wrote a review of the D&G powders on the blog. Sort of meh. And I’m VERY curious about the Tory Burch stuff. The compacts look so pretty… almost Indian IMO. But reviews are kind of mixed. I think the people that love the stuff are just fans of the brand… we shall see.

I didn’t see them but I’ve heard about them! Most beard oils are essentially the same so I think it comes down to the quality of the base oils and then fragrance. I have wondered what his smell like.

OMG I’m so happy I wasn’t the only one who went a lil bit crazy during the Sephora rouge sale! How is the Smashbox palette for Rouges? I have it in my online basket, but I heard some really poor reviews of the first palette.

Haul: cargo blush in amalfi. Also, might be purchasing some things from beautylish.

Weekend Plans: Seeing friends today.

How do you like to spend a rainy day: books,netflix,coffee,tea,snuggie

β– Haul: Tarte’s Tartelette Palette, Jordana 12 Hr Eyeliner Pencil in Espresso Last
β– Weekend plans: School work, so much school work.
β– How do you like to spend a rainy day?: SLEEPING IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Haul: Nada. The Sephora VIB sales tapped me out, so needless to say I’m pumping on the brakes for a little bit.
Weekend plans: Me and some Mucinex D. I am trying to get this cold over with. UGHHH! I haven’t had one for a couple of years, so I guess it’s my turn.
How do you spend a rainy day?: Unfortunately, us folks in southern California haven’t seen rain in a LONG time. We are have a serious drought. When it decides to rain again (I’m praying real hard), I usually like to read a good book (the Maya Angelou book Whitney mentioned is great) or watch Turner classics (love me some old movies).

Haul: Sleek iDivine palettes, Be Beautiful Blemish Balm, blushes, and some lip products (have been wanting to place an order for a long time so finally decided on it…I got late birthday money from my godparents!)
Weekend plans: Medical Clinic in Mexico Saturday and Mockingjay Part 1 on Sunday! (yay!)
How do you like to spend a rainy day?: It depends actually…usually I like to be in bed or on the couch with my dog either curled up on top of my legs or somewhere nearby while I watch movies/dramas/read/whathaveyou OR I like to go outside and people/nature watch. It’s a rarity when it rains in Southern California so I quite enjoy the rain πŸ™‚

Haul: Clinique Moisture Surge mask (I think that’s the name), some Jack Black hand cream for my son in law, a Caudalie gift set for a friend for her Xmas present, a Sephora liner – finally got Snakeskin Dress and it’s lovely. Oh, and 2 Revlon Lip Butters to replace 2 that are practically all used up (Berry Smoothie and Cherry Tart – they’re sort of my “go to” quick swipe lip products when I’m at work and can’t get to a mirror).

Weekend plans: taking my sis in law and her fella out for a nice, spoiling dinner. I’m hoping to go to yoga tomorrow but the route of the Santa Claus parade might stop me from being able to do this.

How do you spend a rainy day: preferably at home, either under my heated throw and with a mug of good coffee or some soothing tea, watching old British movies or slightly newer British TV series. And getting in a bit of exercise on the ski machine, so I don’t feel guilty!

Haul: I was lucky to go on a working trip to Bangkok and got a Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler! I’m loving it so much I’m regretting not getting two! I also got a Clarins Beauty Flash Balm at duty free πŸ™‚
Weekend plans: I really need to organize my makeup stash – I’ve done some random shopping throughout the year and now I have lost track of the things I have!
How do you like to spend a rainy day? I agree with you, Christine – a dog and coffee are a great combination for a rainy day! I might add a movie πŸ™‚

I just love how Mellan wears whatever you put on him – he looks very classy in that hat :D! Oh, and he looked fierce in his lion costume! Too cute for words!!

Haul: Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette, Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in Blonde, MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC15, MAC Sculpting Powder in Light, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium, Maybelline Gel Liner in Black, Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette, Smashbox On The Rocks Palette, Urban Decay Naked 1&3 Palette, Cargo Cosmetics Northern Lights Palette, Cargo Cosmetics Suited to a Tea Palette, Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Copper Diamond, MAC Keepsakes Viva Glamorous Lip Bag, MAC Objects of Affection Gold+Beige Set, MAC Objects of Affection Pink + Plum Lipglass Set, EstΓ©e Lauder Idealist, and repurchased my usual skincare products from Benefit – Triple Performing Facial Emulsion and Moisture Prep. (I know, I purchased probably wayyy to many products but my first EVER pay check got paid in a couple of days ago, so a girl did some damage :p and I’m not planning on buying anything until MAC releases the Prabal Gurung collection)

Weekend Plans: Relax, have some rest and forget about the world. Literally. This week was so stressful that I was only getting about 2 hours of sleep a night for the past couple of days and I really need to rewind this weekend.

How Do You Like To Spend A Rainy Day?: I always play Bruno Mars “It will rain” :p, switch off the lights and light up the room with candles, play around with make up and watch some youtube tutorials.

Haul: 2 new mini perfumes from Bath Sabbath. Ardency Inn pigment in Royal. KvD liquid lipstick in Vampira. Formula X polish in Mind Game. Sephora mini sample bag.

Weekend Plans: Gallery opening tonight. Hockey tomorrow (2 games, 1 in each league I play in, hahaHAHA).

Favorite way to spend a rainy day: In the darkroom or the shop, they’re both warmer than the main part of my house! Or if I’m feeling lazy curled up on the sofa with my cats either reading or watching netflix.

Haul: I can’t actually remember what I got. Everything takes so long to get here I just forget. Sometimes opening up parcels is like gifting yourself a surprise present. I do remember getting the OCC tar’s 12 Set because I finally felt my lips could handle it (thank you on the jack black Lip balm rec. It’s the reason my lips aren’t shedding like a snake anymore.) And I just remembered I got GA lasting silk. How could I forget (?!?) because I was so hyped for my first properly expensive foundation.

Weekend plan: Exams, thesis and projects. *sigh*

Rainy days: Well if it’s drizzly rain then definitely out for a walk in the park. I live in a warm country so rains always make me happy enough to stay outdoors.

Mellan looks very dapper indeed!

Haul: Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder (foundation junkie here).

Weekend: Dealing with a multitude of moving boxes and puppy sitting a cute little Maltese.

Rainy day: Online, on a couch, with coffee, with LMN on tv. lol

Will there be anywhere where Charlotte Tilbury makeup will be discounted? I must ask!! Please, where? πŸ˜› Mellan is the cutest thing, so docile, I just feel warm fuzzies from every gorgeous picture!

Haul: Sara Happ Lipp Scrub & both versions of luxe balm or whatever, and Rouge Gs, Shupette Ultim8 oil from Shu Uemura & Karl L. Collab. And one for my mom! πŸ˜€ Also, bras! And.. Undies! πŸ˜€

Weekend plans: Still attempting to curb pneumonia. I have no immune system, and I’ve now been sick for two months ongoing, fighting like every virus moving around the body but it’s back to the lungs now so just rest, laughter, positivity, breathing treatments, hot teas & soup, vapor plug ins, and nipping it in the ass! Ugh! Insanity… As well, I will be wishing all have enjoyable weekends! πŸ˜€ Good luck on relaxing, Christine! Perhaps inspire hubby? I never saw a review of his! πŸ˜›

How I spend rainy days: I SLEEP. I sleep like a BABY when it rains, storms, a tornado passes, and if I’m aware this will happen, I prepare. Otherwise, I pass out to sleep naturally during rains etc. Weird, huh? I swear it’s true! πŸ˜€
<33333

Do you have really good luck with Sara Happ’s lip balms?

I don’t know of anywhere that will discount Charlotte Tilbury. I know Beautylish has $10 off $50 for first time customers, but that’s about it!

Thanks! I appreciate it, lol. πŸ˜› It just makes it the same price anyway! πŸ˜€

YESSSSSSSSSS! I have the BEST luck with Sara Happ! Both the lip slip balm in the tub and the lip slip gloss in tube! I’ve the one in the tube on now, and it’s STUCK there, for allllllllllll night! My lips are plump, juicy, contoured, and look done up! I could not be happier!!!!! Have you tried Sara Happ, Christine? πŸ˜€

You totally tock the Chanel’s yet make a valid point with my lip pigmentation. And I’m well covered with darker, or just the gloss I have on or the Givenchy rouge interdict dating that help mute a bit, or the magic one which makes it more prominent. G’s in Grenade, Graccia, Gaetane, Gina., and Garance.. I’m quite happily hauled! πŸ˜€

Update: Bite Agave lip mask.. Noooooo.
Sara Happ? HG! Soooo HAPPY! My lips just dehydrated and shrivel into dryness.. Now they’re smooth and young, mildly expensive, haha, but feeling soooo much better!!!!! I totally dig Sara Happ lip scrub too! And, as we use an essence or toner on our face to help the the next things really do their job, I’ve been using Fresh’s lip treatment Serum religiously day & night, massing the contours, and my first container isn’t gone yet, still have a backup, doesn’t take much, but dude, my count our now feels like a thread is running through it! πŸ˜€ (And that’s a miracle given circumstances could no longer hold them up! This works for me! No irritation! So yes, really good luck! πŸ˜€ Thanks for asking! πŸ™‚ it’s amazing when the moisture isn’t sucked from my lips in 15 minutes. πŸ˜› YAY!!!!! I’ve purchased gifts of these as well for my mom! When I let her try mine, she was like, “ooooooooo, my that’s sooo nice! My lips have been so dry!” How can you not buy something for your loving momma when she’s rarely happy and finally feels at least one thing good!? If that helps with the good luck, you bet it’s all good luck with Sara Happ! Totally recommend! ( I’ve hoped & crossed fingers for decades, finding something here & there, my fave got DCd but this is BETTER! I’d for sure go out with just this on, it makes lips look perfect, as it did for my mom too! Health & life comes back to them the longer it’s on! Haha! I was going to purchase a nipple blush as a joke but not for that money! πŸ˜› πŸ˜‰ Goodnight! xo <3 to you & yous & all! πŸ™‚

And now I’m saving my spending to buy the lippies with the names of my main boys! πŸ˜‰ I love them, so I’ll cherish the TF lippies, though I’ve no idea the finish! πŸ˜€ <3 Spreading the love <3

Haul: I was on a bit of a makeup ban for a while, so I went a little crazy this week. I bought Anastasia Brow Wiz, Benefit Rockateur, Lush Snow Fairy shower gel, Swankified walnut scrub from Fortune Cookie Soap, and UD Vice 3. I also stocked up on the UD liquid liners since they were only $10! I got El Dorado, Sabbath, Siren, Retrograde, and Radium.

Weekend Plans: I’m going to a friend’s party tomorrow. Other than that, I’ll probably work on some projects.

How do you like to spend a rainy day?: Same as you Christine! Except replace dog with cat, and add a book. It’s actually raining today, so I might have to see if I can convince the cat it’s a good time to cuddle. πŸ˜‰

I really like their sugar scrubs; they provide great exfoliation while also being moisturizing. They have a coffee one that I really want to try. Their body butters are nice too, not too greasy feeling, but moisturizing.

Haul: Some MUFE eyeshadows I ordered arrived.

Weekend plans: Grocery shopping and housecleaning for Thanksgiving.

How do you like to spend a rainy day?: I spend them the same as any other day. They’re too frequent in the Portland, OR area to let them interrupt the flow.

Haul: Nothing this week! I am eyeing one of the Bare Minerals lipgloss gift sets, though.
Weekend plans: pedicure tomorrow and a nearby city’s grand illumination and parade that night (too early, if you ask me!)
How do you like to spend a rainy day? I like to have nothing to do but curl up with a good book (a cup of Earl Grey tea would be an added bonus)!

Haul: Algenist Toner, Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Topaz, Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel Palette, Guerlain Rouge G, Gipsy, YSL Touche Eclat, UGG tall Classic boots, scarf, statement necklace, layering necklace & earrings & a bracelet.

Weekend plans: Holiday planning, getting house ready, etc

How do you like to spend a rainy day?: Reading a great book and sipping Chai Latte

I love Mellan’s top hat! Haha how cute

Haul: I think I -should- be slightly embarrassed, my Sephora VIB/Rouge sale haul showed up… Yes, it takes that long, I’m that far North πŸ™‚ So I got a Lavanila Deo Trio (Christine has talked about these!), Bite Beauty Mix N’ Mingle set & a Mini Matte CrΓ¨me Lip Crayon in Aubergine, three Viseart palettes, some Sunday Riley skincare, Clarisonic brush head replacements, NUDE Skincare Cleansing Jelly Perfect, Bumble and bumble Non-Stop Softness Set, Marc Jacobs Beauty Brow Gel (repurchase!), NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Kauai (again thanks Christine!), NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard – a shade that matches my fairer skin for winter, Bobbi Brown Basic Brush Collection & the Bronze Glow Highlight powder, Omorovicza Queen Of Hungary Mist, MUFE HD Blush HD in 315, 510 & 515, NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, MUFE Artist Palette Artist Palette, CLINIQUE Cheek Pop Cheek Pop Peach Pop… Bahh!! I have a problem! 😐 and the MAC Kinky lipstick…
Weekend plans: I have decided to make absolutely no plans this weekend! Other than bum around, do some cleaning, sleep in, and probably play with my new makeup! Bahaha!
How do you like to spend a rainy day?: Hanging out with my bf watching movies and YouTube! Or hanging out with my mom binge watching Harry Potter movies or Downton Abbey! πŸ˜€

I know – it’s indulgent. I’ve seen some really good reviews & couldn’t pass on the 20% off. The only one I didn’t order was the matte one but I’m waiting for the restock!

Oh Mellan – who can resist a handsome young man in a top hat? Irresistible.
Haul: The new Burberry eyeshadow quad from Nordstrom. Shu Uemera 25% sale – Ultimate8 makeup oil. I bought a smaller size for my birthday haul this summer and I love it.

Rainy day: web browsing and watching old movies of my favorites: Bette Davis, Barbara Stanwyck, etc.

Ultim8 is nice! πŸ™‚ I picked up a bottle of the high performance one (I think that’s what it’s called) during the sale myself.

Haul: Shu Uemura eyebrow pencils and YSL Touche Eclat.

Weekend plans: Now that I got my laptop fixed, it’s time to catch up with job search and volunteer work.

How do you like to spend a rainy day?: Inside — Exactly how I like to spend a sunny day as well. I get sunshine depression, basically the opposite of winter blues. (I believe the formal term is summer-onset seasonal affective disorder) As a result, I’m almost exclusively an indoor person. I do go out every now and then, but open outdoor spaces are pretty scary to me.

What kind of volunteer work do you do, Ryou?

I have never heard of sunshine depression before! Thanks for teaching me something new!

Haul: Peter Thomas Roth Mini Mask Magic Kit
Weekend plans: Homework, as usual.
How do you like to spend a rainy day?: Catching up on TV shows.

Stubbs gave me a warning look when he spotted Mellan with a top hat πŸ™‚ Mellan is just so sweet.

Haul, this is for the last two weeks, and it’s not much. But finally, OCC Technopagan. I love it, so far I’ve just worn it when I’v walked the dog, at night, but I really think it looks sort of natural, in a way I can’t explain. Maybe it’s because there are so many nuances in it. Anyway, I totally love it. I also got, I think it was Black Dahlia from OCC, a lot less forgiving, I must say, all the small dry spots seems to magnify when I wear it. Hmm, what else A purple nailpolish from OPI, sometning Stockholm, and two gold-y ones from cheap brands, One can never have enough gold, right πŸ™‚
I also got two t-shirts and a poster from the Blizzcon mechandise.
Almost forgot, I also got a blush from Anna Sui, in 100, it’s lilac-y and very pretty and it smells like a rosegarden after a slow summer rain.

Weekend, I’m going back to Draenor to play with the warlords, this is where I’ve spent most of my spare time last week. Very enjoyable after the initial chaos was dealt with.

Rainy days I prefere to spend inside with some good TV show or a film or a book, and playing with Stubbs.

Haul: Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet foundation, WNW blush in Mellow Wine, WNW blush in Heather Silk, MAC Rihanna Viva Glam lipstick and Maybelline color tattoo metal eyeshadow in Silver Strike.

Weekend plans: Get stuff ready for Thanksgiving.

How do you like to spend a rainy day?: Watching old movies on TCM.

Haul: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette! I love it! I’m really loving the finish, and I’m thrilled to add Mood Exposure to my collection, I haven’t got anything similar to it. My only concern is that my Incandescent Electra has a lot of pigment veining, so it ends up looking quite similar to Luminous Flush on my skintone. I’ll have to see how I go with it.

Weekend plans : work! Study! Do I do anything else? πŸ˜‰

Rainy day: I love being able to stay inside and keep warm and dry!
