  • Haul: MAC x Nicopanda (might have been late last week, actually… but I forgot to mention it!), Becca Dreamsicle, Sephora Bronzers, Givenchy Khol Couture (two shades), Sunday Riley The Influencer Foundation, Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Smoothing Oil Body Cleanser
  • Weekend plans: I’ve been a few days ahead on the blog, which is such a great feeling — well, ahead in the sense of having posts written and ready to go. I want to keep that up, so I’m hoping to spend a full day just adding dupes and then the second day writing up reviews.
  • Hot or cold beverages?: When I look at what I drink most often (lattes and decaffeinated tea), it seems like hot!

  • Haul: Guerlain Rouge Gs (new formula) from Selfridges… I’m prepping this post a bit early but am still waiting to hear about if/when US launch will occur…
  • Weekend plans: It’s starting to warm up, so if it doesn’t get too hot, probably take a walk through the neighborhood, maybe walk downtown.
  • What are three little things that make you happy?: Tiramisu, Mellan wiggling, hubby doing laundry.

  • Haul: Becca Chocolate Geode Highlighter, Pretty Vulgar Highlighers (x3)
  • Weekend plans: I think it’s just going to be a low-key weekend… hanging with hubby and Mellan, working on the blog, the usual.
  • What is your usual evening routine like?: I try to start winding down work stuff between 8 and 9PM. I brush teeth and go through my evening skincare routine, then read for an hour or so. I try to have lights off by 11PM as I tend to wake up early.

  • Haul: Farmacy Green Clean x3, Becca Chocolate Geode Highlighter, Pretty Vulgar Highlighters x3
  • Weekend plans: We have a fancy dinner out, and then on Sunday, we’re making (well, heating) a ham I bought from Snake River Farms and pairing that with scalloped potatoes. If you have any favorite recipes for ham leftovers, do let me know…
  • What is your usual morning routine like?: I wake up around 6:30-7AM (I don’t set an alarm, though), and then I check email and social media for about 15-30 minutes in bed. I snuggle with my husband and Mellan for a bit, and then it’s shower time. I typically make my latte after but occasionally defer until late morning if I expect to take photos (I always forget to drink while photographing!).

  • Haul: Pat McGrath Eyeshadow Palettes, Benefit Blush Bar
  • Weekend plans: Definitely grocery shopping! I’d also like to tidy up my entry way (which gets taken over by beauty products).
  • What’s your favorite meal to cook?: I’m not a fan of cooking, so something simple like fettuccine alfredo.
