Memorial weekend, NYX Haul

I remembered I ordered stuff from cherry culture during their 50% off NYX sale so I was excited to come home with a package waiting for me. I think I just like ordering stuff online because I like opening packages, :P. Anyway, I didn't order much, just 3 round lipglosses (apricot, mauve, ballerina pink) and 2 eyeshadow cubes (suede, antique gold). Still searching for the perfect golden brown eyeshadow color...

On the lips! I felt kinda weird taking these cause they're so zoomed in, you could see my pores and 'stache :P

Swatches on the hand!

During the week, I visited the garden at my school and took some photos. I miss photography.

Me parody-ing studio glamour pic poses.

We saw this weird pot of... what looked like moldy, leaf soup inside a tree trunk? It was pretty interesting...

It took a million attempts to get this picture of the dragon fly. It was on some grass right next to a river and stupid me forget to bring my telephoto lens (super zoom). So I had to bust a national-geographic-photog status. It came out okay, but I really wish I had my other lenses!

So many red-slider turtles, can you find them all? There's probably about twenty altogether (there's some across the stream too!)

I felt so stalkerish taking this pic. I didn't even know she was in the background until after I saw the pic! I swear I was focusing on the lavendery flowers.

I think this was called "Japanese Cherry tree" not sure if it's the same as "Cherry Blossom."

I have two more weeks of classes and I'm done with undergrad! Of course the last few weeks are always packed with work to do.. so back to work for me.. :(

P.S. What are you girls doing this memorial weekend?


  1. Hi Jenn!
    I love your NYX haul! Yay! ;)

    Both e/s colors are very pretty and versatile. The lipglosses are also very cute. My favorite is Mauve.

    I'm using SHISEIDO The Skincare products for about 1 year now, and I'm satisfied. Very hydrating and smoothing.

  16. hey Jenn!

    thanks so much for stopping by my little blog and leaving such a sweet comment! haha xD the contest has such awesome entries..i think it's apparent who the winners will be already. haha xD anyway, i just wanted to say..great choice of glosses for the haul, and those two eye shadows are really pretty! :) I would suggest MAC e/s in Tempting for's a really warm golden brown with light gold shimmer. You can use a lot for a smoky look or blend very lightly for a softer look~it's my go-to brown shadow! i love it! hehe ^_^ anyway, that pic of you in the trees is adorable! not stupid at all!!
