  • Haul: A silicone brush cleaning mat (a random one from Amazon) — curious to see how well it works.
  • Weekend plans: My parents will be visiting in July, so I need to tidy up some of the areas that I let get messy (mostly the front hall where packages arrive and get emptied).
  • What was the last book you read?: I think the first Harry Potter… and I don’t think I actually finished it.

  • Haul: BH Club Tropicana/Carli Bybel Palettes arrived along with Becca’s Light Chaser Highlighters and Liquid Crystal Glow Glosses. It’s actually been a quieter week for me re: purchases.
  • Weekend plans: So, I bought a doggy pool for Mellan yesterday, which means that’s really the main event for today and the weekend… I’ve tried it once before, and he seemed more confused than entertained.
  • What’s your favorite way to stay cool in hot weather?: Stay inside with AC, LOL!
    Other than that: HYDRATE! I always feel better in hot weather when I’m drinking a lot of water.

  • Haul: Bite Beauty Cava Multistick, Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Palette, Drunk Elephant Jelly Cleanser, Dr. Bronner Liquid Soap
  • Weekend plans: I think there’s a light at the end of the tunnel of a series of frustrating events over the last two weeks, so I’m excited to get some real work done this weekend as I’m more behind than usual!
  • What is something you’ve always wanted to learn?: How to sew — even just the basics, since I know it would be useful to be able to sew on a button properly…

  • Haul: Drunk Elephant Babyfacial, Huda Highlighter Palettes (literally just arrived, haven’t even opened the box yet)
  • Weekend plans: It’s actually been a really rough week, so I might actually take a few hours to myself and sit on the couch (or floor), cuddle with Mellan, and watch a bunch of HGTV to turn my brain into mush.
  • What have been your favorite TV shows lately?: We just finished watching Master of None (on Netflix)!

  • Haul: Jouer summer collection, Drunk Elephant trial-size duos, Glamglow Flashmud, Sol de Janeiro Body Boom Set
  • Weekend plans: Possibly go grocery shopping, and if we do, then I want to stop by the Container Store to pickup more storage bins (for the garage, not for makeup for once!).
  • How do you like to start your mornings?: I like waking up without an alarm clock, and then lazing in bed for about ten minutes checking my email, social media, etc., followed by cuddle time with husband and then Mellan. I then get ready for my day and have my first latte. I look forward to that latte, haha!

  • Haul: Chanel Cream/Powder Eyeshadows, Anastasia Summer products (not yet here), Natasha Denona Sunset Palette
  • Weekend plans: It’s Restaurant Week here, so we’re going out to a nicer restaurant for dinner. I need to organize my desk–I have over half a dozen earrings that need to be put away–and the front hall (which has become the “mail room”).
  • What’s one thing that always cheers you up?: Mellan and a hug from my hubby!
