Yeah I rotate through all the games when I play. That way I can use up my 5 lives on each game and some of them retock lives by the time I go through them all. lol

Yes…… Technopagan is sold out everywhere so when I place my order on the tapers Holiday brush (in black) I was SOOOO happy to find they had stock!

OCC is restocking the shade next month, I put my name down on the waitinf list after IMATS. lol

Haul: Nothing! I’ve been wanting to stop by Sephora to get a Flirting Game liner but I haven’t had the time!
Weekend plans: 3 guesses (but we’ve got 2 parties as well, I’m going to the hairdresser tomorrow and the gym, I hope). Mainly it’s going to be cleaning the house, grocery shopping for the last fresh items I need for Xmas eve dinner, Xmas morning brunch and our big holiday dinner on the 26th! Oh, and spending as much time as I can with my younger son, who’s home from uni and will be going to San Francisco for 4 months, flying out on NYE.
Online games? Nope! Not a single one.

I love seeing pics of your dog. He’s the cutest little thing!! I went a tiny bit overboard this week with the hauling but only because I had coupons and gift cards lol. I picked up 2 more Flower Beauty lipsticks plus another gloss. I also grabbed like 5 of the new Covergirl Lava glosses, 4 Revlon HD glosses (thanks to you lol), 4 nude Milani lipsticks, 2 Wet n Wild lipsticks and 2 of the Revlon Highlighting palettes. After I hit Ulta this weekend, I’ll be done for a little bit. I hope lol

Just making sure all gifts are wrapped and everything is sorted and scheduled, where I’m going to be and when (family and friends, etc.) Plans for dinners, etc. I’ve been making Christmas stockings for several people this year and I have finishing touches to do on those… I have actually been pretty caught up so far all season! Nothing really last minute to get at all ๐Ÿ™‚

Rachel R. Avatar

No, the Sleek stuff just arrived yesterday afternoon. I will be playing with it all this weekend, though, for sure!

I totally left out my Notoriously Morbid haul, as that arrived yesterday also. I got several eyeshadow minis from their overstock sale. I did play with them some today. I’m wearing Silent Samurai and Officer Friendly from the Us and the Dead Collection on my eyes today.

Sunny Avatar

Every Friday, Mellan brings me a feeling of comfort. Thanks for sharing your furbaby with us! I’d love a Mellan photo vault to browse! He just seems so laid back and ultra loving! ๐Ÿ™‚ <3 I hope you get everything taken care of for your holidays! ๐Ÿ˜€

Haul: YSL Volupte Tint-In-Oil, the rest is foggy if there was something which I do remember something but it's blurred~
Weekend plans: Well, I was put on a BC pill to try to help the horror I go through, but I'm getting psychotic nightmares and freaky feelings, so I hope I will be off it and finally sleep with pleasant dreams! Micronor: BAD! (FYI) More positive: Keep experimenting with my new Foreo Luna! ๐Ÿ˜€ We don't do Christmas, but some of us exchange gifts.
Do you play any games online?: No. The last time I did, it was that game where you line up jewels of the same color or shape by a timer, and rack up levels and points, but when I got a fever, everything I saw became a vision of re- shelving according to how that damn game played, and it drove me crazy! I'm way too visual for those things! I enjoy the occasional fun little trivia or quiz things, I'm not sure if those count as games? ๐Ÿ™‚

Lotus Avatar

OMG, yes! That’s the one! Do you dream about it in a way that is unnerving? It totally destroyed everything in any perception! Weird!

Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, starting tonight they (nightmares) should be barely as vibrant and gone very soon! I’m not to take it! Bad stuff! Ha. I’m feeling much better about that!

Do you play any games online? The Sims on my computer and Bakery Story on my smartphone! I play games on on occasion (this will likely increase during my break).

Erin Avatar

Haul: None per se but I did buy Revlon HD Lacquer is Rose Quartz. I plan on going to Sephora on Saturday to see if can find Bite Remix because I was hoping my husband would have bought it for me for my birthday but he didn’t and I then clearly stated I wanted it for Christmas and he’s bought me nothing for either event. We haven’t been celebrating Christmas for the last few years due to financial strain but I got him a nice scarf he wanted so I kinda expected one gift.

Week end plans: The mall because I’m stupidly going out to check out some makeup/skincare stuff. Pike Market on Sunday or Monday depending on weather and how we are feeling. I’d like to get some wild mushrooms for a nice pasta dish and take photos of the decorations.

Online games: Yes. I used to play WoW many moons ago but it’s not worth the 30 bucks a month or what have you for both of use when we only play once a month. Now I just play League of Legends a few times a week as it’s free to play and I like to shout while killing other people. I used to play in BG’s on WoW often but LoL is a decent free outlet for my rage against humanity ๐Ÿ™‚

Haul: Stila liquid lipstick in patina, NYC liquid liner (I heard it was good so I picked it up, plus I’m terrible at liquid liner and need to practice), MAC gingerly blush

Haul: I received my monthly subscription box from Julep this week, and was super happy with new nail polishes and a pretty decent plum eyeshadow, plus I bought the rest of the gel eye liners that I hadn’t bought yet. I have mainly shopped on Ebay this week, so none of my new purchases are here, but I did get a little out of control. So the mail over the next couple of weeks should bring lots of goodies from MAC and BareMinerals.
Weekend plans: I had a super heavy work week this week, and am exhausted, so even though I have work to do and want to finish cleaning, I am planning to take Friday night off and take a long bubble bath, watch scary movies, and work on a cross stitch project that I need to finish. I haven’t finished Christmas shopping yet, but I really won’t get that done until Wednesday.
Do you play any games online? I used to play several games online, like the ones through Facebook, the Farmvilles and Chef World or something like that, but once they started feeling like an obligation or a job, I stopped playing. I can lose track of too much time playing anyway!
Merry Christmas everyone!
