  • Haul/Rediscoveries: I received all of my Black Friday goodies, haha! Farmacista Antica hand soaps, NARS Eyeshadow Quads, Sydney Grace Eyeshadow Palette, Pat McGrath Lip Pencils… along with SkinMedica Vitamin C E Complex, SUQQU Brush Set.
  • Weekend plans: Hubby and I are going to visit Design Within Reach to check out their new Cosm chair while they have their 15% off sale.
  • Are you a daredevil?: Nope, not at all. I’m risk-averse in just about everything, LOL. I’m worried enough about dying accidentally.

  • Haul/Rediscoveries: I bought four of the Pat McGrath Lip Pencils (not here yet), since I’ve heard good things and I’d like to test, though I’m not so sure there’ll ever be a review but we’ll see (these at least seem like they’ll be comfortable to apply all-over). I also ordered, but don’t have yet, the new Sydney Grace palette (what a great item to review initially, I think). I picked up several hand washes from Antica Farmacista during their recent Black Friday sale.
  • Weekend plans: I shot a ton of photos/swatches on Thursday but didn’t end up having time during the day to process them (needed to write reviews for the next day), so my biggest priority is working through them later this morning/early afternoon and getting some of the swatches up for Saturday sneak peeks.
  • What are you most looking forward to in December?: My parents will be visiting at the end of the month, so I’m definitely looking forward to seeing them. The best part is that at the end of the year, there’s a lot of “best of” the year posts that I do, but those I can do ahead of time so I’m able to spend a bit more time with my family then, too.

  • Haul/Rediscoveries: I always end up so busy managing and scheduling and tending to the Black Friday/Cyber Monday post that I forget to shop at all.
  • Weekend plans: My mother-in-law and one of my brother-in-laws are visiting for Thanksgiving, so I’ve been getting up a bit earlier to put in a few hours of work before they wake up so I can spend more time with them.
  • What’s your hot drink of choice?: On the daily, a latte. Special occasions? I love a good apple cider or hot chocolate!

  • Haul/Rediscoveries: Sol de Janeiro shower gel (x3) for hubby. New hair? That’s beauty-related and expensive enough, LOL.
  • Weekend plans: My mother-in-law and one of my brother-in-laws is visiting for Thanksgiving, so I need to start tidying up my areas of the house… aka deal with makeup coming out of my ears.
  • What’s your favorite part about your morning routine?: Seeing hubby as the first thing when I wake up, then a big Mellan nose greeting me, and finally, coffee!

  • Haul/Rediscoveries: Nirvana Black Dry Shampoo (x3), Pat McGrath Permagel Eye Pencils (x3)
  • Weekend plans: So I managed to resist putting up Christmas decorations last weekend, but since it’s officially November, I’ll be putting up some of them – all but the tree and then waiting to put the tree up closer to Thanksgiving… hopefully.
  • What is your favorite holiday?: Christmas, as I love all the decor and music, but mostly because it’s the time of year my parents come out to visit for a week or so!
