  • Haul: Too Faced Born This Way Foundation, ColourPop Super Shock Shadows (six new shades), Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Vault
  • Weekend plans: My front hall/mail room still look like a tornado went through, and I hate when my front hall gets taken over by products (mail room is a room, so I don’t see the craziness 24/7!) so I am prioritizing the tidying this weekend!
  • What’s your evening routine?: I’ve been getting up a bit earlier, so I try to start winding down around 9PM, which mostly means leaving my desk and removing makeup, brushing teeth, etc. Most nights, I hang out with hubby and Mellan watching TV or reading, then try to turn the lights out by 11PM!

  • Haul: Marc Jacobs O!Mega Eyeshadows, Marc Jacobs Glam Glitter Eyeliners, Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Polishes (x3), Fenty Diamond Ball-out Killawatt, Fenty Universal Gloss Bomb, KKW Beauty Classic palette
  • Weekend plans: Try to figure out what to do for landscaping; the recent monsoon that swept through did some reorganizing and I have a couple of plants to replace, so I’m trying to decide if I want to do anything else while I’m at it!
  • What’s your morning routine like?: I’m usually up between 6:30am and 7am, and then I spent about 15-30 minutes checking social media and email. Then, I take a shower, feed Mellan, make coffee, and start working, which is either straight to my desk or straight to the photo studio for pictures!

  • Haul: Some products from the Wet ‘n’ Wild Zodiac collection (not everything was in stock), Burberry Lip Velvet Crushes (x3), Natasha Denona Lila Palette
  • Weekend plans: Spend some quality time with my boys, try to tidy up my “mail room” and sort through tested products for donation.
  • Do you like audio books?: I’m a notoriously bad listener… I have to concentrate much harder to pay attention to sustained audio… like I can have a conversation that goes back and forth with someone just fine, but lectures and the like? I used to just type everything professors would say like I was working as a transcriptionist so I could read it through later. I love the idea but find reading better for me.

  • Haul: MAC x Terry Barber Palette, MAC x Nordstrom Lip Sets (x2), Anastasia Fall 2018
  • Weekend plans: Probably spend one morning taking photos/swatching new products, and then the other day will be processing and writing reviews… possibly entering a 1,000 or so dupes (I usually spend several hours entering dupes in a row).
  • What has been the best part of July for you?: My family visited! It was really good to see everyone, especially my grandmother (who lives in Florida).

  • Haul: Sonia G. Worker One, Face Two, and Pencil One brushes
  • Weekend plans: My family just left from their visit, so we’re going to be tidying up, restocking the fridge, and then I’m catching up on emails!
  • What’s your favorite iced drink?: I’d say pina colada (non-alcoholic), which has lots of finely crushed ice, so that counts, right?!
