Free for Haul Friday, Volume #282

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul: Bite Beauty’s April shade (arrived late yesterday, hoping to photograph + dupe it today), MAC Of Beauty x2 eyeshadows, ColourPop In Bloom (another late arrival yesterday, can’t wait to play with it today!)
  • Weekend plans: I’m in the process of reorganizing the “archives,” which is when I cull and remove duplicate shades (MAC, I’m looking at you and your repromotes!), look for brands that I don’t need to keep for archival purposes any longer (or formulas that have been discontinued and replaced, already compared and discussed – I’ll keep the current but take out the discontinued version), and generally straighten everything up.
  • What are you looking forward to most this April?: Warmer weather!

Free for Haul Friday, Volume #278

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul: MAC 9x palettes
  • Weekend plans: Grocery shopping, going out for Indian food (I’m SOOO excited!!), work on retirement planning (boo! adulthood!), taxes
  • What was the best meal you’ve ever had?: Wedding reception meal! We did it at my favorite fancy restaurant (it was a small wedding), so it was just great to have a private room with family AND excellent food.

TOO EARLY!

Free for Haul Friday, Volume #277

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul: Estee Lauder x Courreges things
  • Weekend plans: A little relaxation, maybe watch a movie, but I have a few side projects to work on!
  • Do you like to travel?: Not really! The work to leave to go on vacation makes it hard for me to want to go on vacation, and then I end up missing home and Mellan! I’d rather get a massage and go for a really nice dinner out every few weeks than a week-long vacation (as far as taking a break goes).
