One of my friends Carolyn saw something adorable and just had to send it to me. In addition, she sent me a pair of gorgeous earrings that she made, too!

Caro!yn: Handcrafted Jewelry

It’s a gorgeous notepad with poodles on it! Perfect for me and Phaedra :)
She also made me some amazingly cute earrings! They even show up in my hair. I love them.
She makes some gorgeous necklaces and earrings, so check them out :)

Recently Utla had an online special that if you bought something from Urban Decay, they’d throw in 2 24/7 pencils. I figured I didn’t care what colors I got, because I would use them. I ended up picking up:
Ulta

Urban Decay Atmosphere – turquoise with iridescent sparkle
Urban Decay Zero – zealous black
Urban Decay Electric – bright aquamarine
Piggy Polish Parting Waves – a bright turquoise

Speaking of Ulta, I’m lusting after the Pink Chi Flat iron.

The flat iron I have gets too hot to the touch :( I need to find a small one that doesn’t get too hot to the touch on the plastic outside.

Concrete Minerals
I ordered some more samples from Concrete to check out. I really love Detox.

Hearts – deep shimmery red
Detox – seafoam green with silver sparkle
Souljourner – midnight blue with copper sparkle
Croma – shimmery lavender with aqua sparkle
Ether – metallic silver
Eye Primer (free)

      Those earrings are ADORABLE! My Concrete Minerals order got sent out today, I'm really excited to try them.

    • RaeRae

      Cuuute earrings! Can't wait to see your thoughts on your new aquisitions :D

    • Krista

      Nice things…those samples look great!!

    • KittenMittens

      OoOo I love the star earrings! Anything with stars, I want! I even have 2 star tattoos and plan on more for the family peeps :)

    • WendyD

      The notepad and earrings are so cute; how thoughtful! I hope you're feeling better today; Happy St. Patrick's Day to you! *Squeals* Another eye primer! <3 Please review this one! :D I love how they have a sample size available :) I still haven't found my HG primer yet, but Arielle123 from the MMF is sending me samples of the Smashbox eye primer and a MAC Paint Pot, so fingers crossed!

    • Jade

      Blog-lurker from Gothique :) you must tell us if the Concrete Minerals primer is any good, I'm waiting on Nyx primers but I'm not sure if they'll work on me. I was directed here by one of Grey's old-old-old posts mentioning the fact that you have oily lids, whereas she has dry ones. I crease within a few hours so I figured whatever works best for you would work for me (oily lids here too!) You have a great setup here. I do hope you feel better soon, having allergy flare-ups is awful.

      I just noticed they spelled “Poodle” wrong!! Hehe. “Poodole.” That is what I get for shopping at the Japanese dollar-and-a-half-store. ;) I am glad you love them! I loved them, too! :D I'll be making more in other colors and putting them up on my Etsy site soon. Yay! Next time I have some extra money, I am going to buy some samples from Concrete. :D

    • Phyrra

      Hehe! I hadn't even noticed that about the Poodle spelling. The earrings are adorable :) Definitely try the Concrete samples! They were $4.99 for 5.

    • Phyrra

      I will have to try it and let you know. I've got SUPER OILY lids, so the best primers I've tried so far have been Too Faced Shadow Insurance and UDPP Eden. TFSI was my first primer love, though. I still hate the container that Eden comes in.

    • Phyrra

      I'm feeling better now, thanks to the saline nasal spray. Yuck. I'll be reviewing it! If you're curious, you can see all the primers I've reviewed here: http://frescophyrra.blogspot.com/2009/11/my-big-p… That does include a MAC Paint Pot, and Too Faced Shadow Insurance. TFSI is AWESOME.

    • Phyrra

      Aww, how cute!

    • Phyrra

      Thanks!

    • Phyrra

      The eye shadows are nice! Love the earrings!

    • Phyrra

      I hope that you like them :)

    • WendyD

      Thanks :D I <3 your huge primer comparison! I tried TFSI, but that didn't work for me unless I used a lot of it, unfortunately… My main draw to this one is that it offers samples – I can't really return the Detrivore or Aromaleigh primers if they don't work out. :(

    • Silhouettex

      Ooooh Hearts looks so pretty and right up my alley. Is poodle supposed to be spelt that way?

    • Phyrra

      This is true. Though thankfully, the Detrivore and Aromaleigh primers are less expensive.

    • Phyrra

      Lol! No, poodle should be P O O D L E. But sometimes, people don't spell check things before they send them out. One of the recent Too Faced palettes had a huge typo :)

    • Silhouettex

      Ha, I remember seeing that. Chroniles or something, wasnt it? XD

    • Phyrra

      Yeah I think so :)

    • Carolyn B.

      Also, I got it from a Japanese “dollar” store, called Daiso. I ordered the sample pack! It should get here in a few days, or so. I'll blog about it. :D

    • Phyrra

      Sounds good ;)
