Lady is the funniest little thing ever. She always blinks when I go to take her picture! I swear, she is so like Marshall from How I Met Your Mother (please tell me someone knows what I’m talking about)!! Observe:
Isn’t that funny? Lol, ok moving on…erm, yeah–so I kinda forgot about doing the Friday Mixers for a couple of weeks…my apologies! But I’m back now and ready to blow off some steam–so let’s do this!!!
1. Any good hauls this past week?
A couple of things from Kevyn Aucoin, mascara, fake lashes, and a Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm (love this stuff!)
2. What was the highlight of your week?
Watching the sun rise…it’s the small things
3. If you could create the ultimate, perfect smoothie right now, what would you put in it?
Blueberry Greek yogurt, fresh blueberries, strawberries, banana, a touch of honey, some vanilla protein powder, and a tiny squeeze of fresh orange for some zest. Yum! Or I would just buy myself a strawberry-banana smoothie from Surf City Squeeze. Dude, do any of you guys have one near you? Those things are super addictive!
4. Do you like to plan out your beauty purchases carefully or just play it by ear?
Usually, I like to plan my purchases carefully…excluding the last week or two because, quite frankly, I needed it! But most of the time, the reason why I’m so late on the uptake with new products is because I like to thoroughly research the each item before buying it. This includes reading as many reviews as I can, checking the ingredients list online, and reading the manufacturer details on their site.
5. What items are currently on your wishlist?
Oh you don’t even know. I have such a long ongoing list, at this point it’s just ridiculous…and maybe a little sad?? I’ll just list these few items: Hourglass Illume Creme-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset (looks so, so pretty! And I have been dying to try a cream bronzer, now that I’m officially a bronzer-lover!); Chantecaille’s Fun Cheek Color–new for Fall 2012; some of the new Maybelline Great Lash mascara shades (check out this article). I definitely became obsessed with finding the perfect blue mascara after Stella McCartney’s Fall presentation–but I have such a problem with buying high-end mascaras that I ended up passing on the lovely options from YSL, Guerlain, and Laura Mercier (after all, nothing works for my sparse lashes like CoverGirl’s Lash Blast Volume does–so why should I pay more?!). So I’m really excited about this more affordable option from Maybelline. I was thinking just the blue one at first, but now I really want the purple and teal! If you’re interested, act fast because they’re supposedly limited-edition (available until the end of August, according to style.com).
Aaand that’s all she wrote. Overall, would you say you had a good week? Bad week? If so, why? Any exciting weekend plans? Share! ♥
