    I bought an obnoxious amount of stuff whenever they were having their 75% off sale. I’m guessing they’re going out of business, so I stocked up.

    I bought the eye candy palette, peace palette, secret stash makeup kit, trailer trash nail polish, glitter eye pencil in starlet and pickle, and sweet spot gloss in hippie chick and love child.

    I’m pretty happy with everything I got. The packaging is so cute. It’s definitely on the younger side, but I don’t really care, lol 😛

    YES!!!! All the good cosmetics departments are within walking distance in Union Square, too, so we’ll have no shortage of makeup to drool over. 🙂

    Girl, I have to tell you, one of the best parts about planning a wedding is getting the dress! When your time comes you’ll have to send me pics so I can vicariously live through you.

    Do you have any more trips lined up for the season? Or are you staying putt for a while?

  80. Karen says:

    Hi Elle,

    Aww, Pumpkin! How long does the shedding last? Is it days, weeks?

    Tabs is starting to shed, too, so I think it’s time for him to be FURMINATED. I really feel your pain. I swear I have about eight of those lint picker-upper rolls stashed all over the house.
