This Week, 11/10

by Joyce in


You guys! I just realized that Thanksgiving is in a week and a half! SCARY! Also, my little brother turns 16 on Wednesday, which will also be my blog's 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! Crazy. Not to mention that before we know it, it'll be December and almost the end of 2012! All of it is just too crazy! Favorites of the Week: Haven't been able to wear much makeup, since I've mostly just been oversleeping. Haha. I did feel impressed by a sample of Bobbi Brown Long Wear Even Finish Foundation, which I ended up buying. I also threw on CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Spellbound today, and was impressed too! Also, a non-beauty favorite is the Philips HUE. You guys have to see this. Seriously. You have these LED lightbulbs and you can make them ANY color (on an RGB spectrum, or from a photo, or from preset scenes) AND you control them from your phone. Amazing. ALSO i discovered light settings that I think will be good for blog photos! :)

Limited Buy Status: I did end up buying the Tom Ford Lip set I was moaning over last weekend, but I did manage to fit that into some of the overall spending budgets this month. At the list minute, I also threw in the lipstick in Aphrodisiac, which I had been wanting. I also spent far too much time freaking out (also not sleeping) over the Sephora VIB sale this week, and I can't really think about whether or not I stayed within possible budgets there. All I know is, I spent money, and it is really close, and I'm scared. Haha. Also, I want to buy more, which is extra scary.

Here's a quick snapshot of everything I picked up from Sephora, in case you are curious. Also, do follow me on Instagram if you'd like. Most photos are beauty related, but sometimes there's travel & food involved. :)
