  • Haul: Same as last week… just about all the holiday launches I’ve posted about, I’ve purchased something from!
  • Weekend plans: I have adult errands to run like going to the bank to deposit foreign checks (always a nightmare!) and retirement planning. I’m hoping to spend the rest of the day getting some reviews written and then Saturday will be a photo/swatch morning!
  • Are you ready for fall?: Fall is my favorite season, so… always… but being in Arizona now, with summers so hot (even though I find them tolerable since I’m inside so much), it will be a nice reprieve to fall below 100 degrees on average.

  • Haul: What didn’t I haul? Like 10 sets from Sephora’s early access to holiday palettes/sets, LOL!
  • Weekend plans: My mother-in-law and brother-in-law are visiting, so hanging out with them!
  • Indoors or outdoors?: I’m really an indoors kind of gal 99% of the time!

But really, it's more like he has me in the palm of his hand, you know, if he had hands… πŸ™ƒ

  • Haul: Too Faced I Want Kandee/Peaches & Cream products,
  • Weekend plans: It’s been a crazyyy week, so I’m hoping for a little calm before it gets crazy next week as holiday launches are starting to trickle out!
  • Last TV show you watched?: I feel like I haven’t watched TV in weeks, so my guess is something on HGTV… like Love It or List It.

  • Haul: Hourglass palette
  • Weekend plans: I need to clear out the “mail room,” which is effectively my front entry area as it is overflowing with products that need to be sorted (donations, review later, review sooner, etc.). (I didn’t do it last weekend.)
  • What’s your favorite way to relax?: Just cuddling with Mellan or my husband,
    maybe watching HGTV!

  • Haul: Ciate Liquid Chrome/Glitter Flip lip products, Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham (a few of the new pieces, not all), Sunday Riley Good Genes and Luna Oil
  • Weekend plans: I need to clear out the “mail room,” which is effectively my front entry area as it is overflowing with products that need to be sorted (donations, review later, review sooner, etc.).
  • What is your favorite holiday?: It used to be Thanksgiving, since I enjoy the traditional feast, and my parents have perfected the art of said feast (probably because they do it four times a year!), but since I moved out of a state, I’d say Christmas. My parents come visit, my mom cooks, and I get to decorate!

    period, and while I love dogs, camels have my heart!
