Make-Up Monday: Friends and Family

It is that glorious time of year when Sephora gives 20% off to their friends and family!

Here is what is going into my cart:

(Love this stuff.  Like, when I finished the last tube, I kept peering down into the bottom like maybe there was a tiny bit left.  That kind of love.)
(So many months of coveting this palette.)

(Who's going to tell this guy we might be moving?)

We put a bid in on a house, and we have been waiting to hear back for approximately a thousand years now.

It is like waiting for a cute boy to call, except instead of obsessively checking some boy's Facebook, I am obsessively checking

This is the same house that we put a bid on a couple weeks ago, only to be told that another bidder had gotten there first.  Then, we got a call that the other bidder's financing had fallen through!

To quote Grizz from 30 Rock, "It's like a roller coaster ride of emotion in here."

Anyone have a great story about how it took them a long time to get into a new house, but then it turned out perfectly and they lived happily ever after?  Anyone?

Three Things

1. Remember that time I didn't blog for a whole month?  It was, well, the whole last month. The combination of school, work and grad school has me running around like a crazy person.  

(And the fact that one of my grad classes is a history course with approximately 13 million pages of reading each week?  Not really helping.)

2. We have officially begun house hunting! It is all very grown-up and scary, and the words "30-year fixed mortgage" have become a part of our daily conversations.

3. I very much want this purple dress from Old Navy to come hang out in my closet and maybe take me out to dinner every once and a while.

(Hair and) Make-Up Monday: Garnier Fructis Pure Clean

They smell amazing.

Seriously, ah-ma-zing.

And they are pretty earthy-crunchy with no silicones or parabens or dyes.

The shampoo feels like most other shampoos, but the conditioner is definitely lacking in something.  It works just fine, but it doesn't have that sleek feeling that I like in a conditioner. (I'm pretty sure that sleek feeling is the magic of silicones).

Also, the conditioner doesn't do much for my already frizzy hair.

Still, the smell totally makes up for it, and I am obsessed with how good my hair smells right now.

If you run into me, and you want to smell my hair, I'm totally cool with that.

For Going Out, Of Course

Let's talk about this top from Old Navy.

Cute, right?

I love the little print and the pockets and the scoop neck.

But, my favorite part is that it is called the "Going Out Blouse."

Don't you feel like someone's grandma named it that?

Make-Up for Lost Sleep Monday

I am switching classrooms, and I spent my day moving bookshelves and cleaning out my super messy desk.

I am headed to bed with a copy of Mockingjay and plan to get some sleep.  (Though I have to admit that the Hunger Games series is the main reason I have been so tired lately!)

Make-Up Monday: Urban Decay Naked Palette

If I had a tree in the backyard that grew Sephora gift cards, I would buy this palette in a heartbeat.

(There is not a single shade in there that I don't like.)

I can see why this was one of those can't-keep-it-on-the-shelves items when it first came out.

If (hypothetically) my birthday were three months away, would it be too early to start making a wish list?
