And yet more haulage…

Sephora Haul

I know, I know! I’m so bad. The idea was to cut down my makeup collection and keep it small, not build it back up again.

I was browsing as I often do and filling up my cart with items that I want. I do that a lot. I put together a hypothetical purchase order of makeup I’d like to buy but I rarely ever pull the trigger. However on that particular day I noticed that my annual Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gift had become available (my b-day isn’t until March) so I decided to follow through and complete the transaction.

More Random Haulage

REVO Lip Balms

When HollieEatsLipstick on YouTube mentioned the new Spring/Valentine’s Day REVO lip balm collection had been released, I went out on a mission to find them. She found hers at Walgreens but either mine hadn’t yet received a shipment or they’d completely sold out of them already. Luckily, I was able to locate the collection at Duane Reade.

I believe there are four different scents available in the Valentine’s Day collection but I only purchased Chocolate Covered Strawberry and Marshmallow Creme based on Hollie’s recommendation. According to Hollie, these two are the most strongly scented in the collection and the other two are subtler. This will be my first time trying a REVO balm so I figured I should probably go all out and get the strongest fragrances. I never cared for the similarly shaped EOS lip balms but Hollie always raves about the REVOs and says they’re way better, so I’m really looking forward to trying them out.

They were $2.99 each or 2/$5.

Cooking with Farro

Farro Salad with Fried Cauliflower / Farro Salad with Cucumbers & Chicory

I finally got around to trying the farro that I purchased awhile back from Trader Joe’s. The mood to cook something suddenly overcame me and I remembered the farro sitting in the pantry. Off to Pinterest I went and after scrolling through a bunch of recipes I hit on two that looked really tasty.

The Great Purge of 2014: Aftermath – Blush

I’m a true blush fiend so getting rid of blushes from my makeup collection was a really time consuming process for me.

It took about a year but I did it!
