Makeup | Weekend | + Things

I love weekends because I get to spend as long as I want (for the most part) playing with makeup! Usually this doesn't last ridiculously long though because I don't really like missing out on time with my boys <3

But here's evidence of some of the fun I had yesterday:

This brings me to another subject entirely.

Do you feel HUGE pangs of anticipation when you know you have packages coming? Thanks to winning a couple of giveaways and doing a little extra online shopping I'm expecting some PACKAGES. It's really all I can think about.

It's so exciting because I totally have UPS envy of our next door neighbors. I'm pretty sure they buy 100% of everything online because UPS pays them a nice little visit EVERY DAY. And about 90% of the packages come from Amazon, Target and Crate & Barrel. (yeah, so I look out the window from time to time--you know you do it too!) : ) I wanted in on that action,so here it goes:

Coming My Way:
+a few accessories from Kintage
+these Blowfish shoes  (the zebra print)
+this pink studded spike iPhone case

I'm pretty excited.

Are you expecting any packages? Tell me all your shopping splurges. It's my favorite.

Your eyes look awesome!

Are you my neighbor? haha. I've been really bad about online shopping lately, I'm expecting a baby girl soon and have been stuck at home on modified bed-rest. So I mean what else am I going to do?!

I love getting any kind of mail especially packages. When my mail box is empty I get so sad. I like to order things online just to anticipate them coming. But I love to shop in person too!

Love the makeup!

I'm guilty of always receiving packages. My kids are constantly asking my parents for things so we get a package in the mail at least once a week. It was really bad during the holiday season though - we got 5 huge boxes at once so we had to go to the post office and the postmaster gave us this humungous mail cart to take it to our car. It was kinda awkward having everyone stare at you as me as I pushed this loud, giant cart full of boxes stacked to my nose all the way to the car....

what kind of mascara do you use?

Heather said...

I love getting packages! I think that might be why I joined Amazon prime :-) Even if I am just buying tea or glue, it makes me happy to see fedex or ups coming to my door! Enjoy your packages!

Your makeup looks gorgeous! I love getting packages...the anticipation like kills me, and when it finally comes, I feel like a kid on Christmas. Sometimes I know I don't need something..but the idea of getting a package pushes me to buy :) Oooops, shop-a-holic!

XO, Kelsey

Kelly said...

Oh my goodness, your make up is stunning and I LOVE waiting for packages, honestly one of my favorite things ever!

What a beautiful mama! I love that natural and clean look and it totally works for you! I also have 'waiting for the package' anticipation pangs. We have several large windows in the front of our house and I can't wait but glance out them repeatedly hoping for the mailman! Right now I am waiting for some Yogi tea that I ordered during a giveaway. Yay, free tea!

Your make-up is so pretty, and still so natural! I LOVE packages... The mail man probably thinks I'm stalking him! I do a happy dance when I see the FedEx or UPS truck pull up in front of the house... I am expecting another pair of glasses from Firmoo and a bunch of clearance goodies I ordered from Old Navy sometime this week :)

Rebecca @ Mommy in Heels said...

I love those shoes! They are so cute! Unlike you, I am not expecting any packages :( But I am with you...the anticipation of knowing you have one coming is so much fun!!

ChatterBlossom said...

Aren't these days fun?! When you can share new goodies you have in store? Love it! I show mine every Sunday. ;-)

Tiffany said...

Your makeup looks lovely. And I too LOVE receiving packages in the mail. It's so exciting!

Looking great Mama!

You really are beautiful, with or without makeup.

Shopping splurge? ummmmmmm? hummmmmmm? I don't shop. Well, I did buy fabric to make things and sell, but that doesn't count.

I would love to shop. To buy things for myself is a dream.

oh my, your eyes and hair are GORGEOUS! I rarely online shop because I'm too scared I won't like it in person. But I do love receiving packages/mail (not bills, of course!). New follower! :)
Hope you have a great day!
