Happy Valentine’s Day!

I wanted to say Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone :)

I wanted to invite you to say hi (or de-lurk and say hi if you don’t normally comment), and tell me what your plans are for today.

I’m curious, how long have you been reading my blog? I realize it will be 3 years old in May.

If you’re wanting some inspiration for Valentine’s Day looks, I’ve done several :) You can check them out here.

Also, I’ve reorganized the Swatches Page, as well as the Reviews Page to try and make it easier to find things. Please let me know what you think. And of course, I’ve updated my Creative Companies page. This page has a list of places that I think are safe to shop, as well as a list of places that I personally avoid, most for bad customer service.

      Hi girl!
      Happy Valentine’s Day to you too!
      I have no plans, other than continuing with the ever-exciting house cleaning for my out-of-town guests arriving on Wednesday. I don’t have a ‘valentine’ (I’m very ok with that, lol) so no point in planning anything.
      I’ve been reading your blog for probably 8 months or so. I’m not really sure when I first cam across it, but you always have such pretty looks, I can’t help but click on every link you post on Twitter, lol.
      Happy V-Day to you again,

        Thank you :)

        I feel so bad, my blog database messed up and lost all the comments from 12:01 am today until about 8pm today :(

        So glad to hear from you!

        I hope you have a fantastic time with the guests.

      Hi! I comment sometimes, but mainly I lurk! I’ve been reading your blog for… almost a year now, I think! I really enjoy it. Thanks for writing it.
      Today on Valentine’s Day I made a dinner for my family and cuddled with my girlfriend. ^^ It was nice. Except I had to go to school today–not fun.

      • Phyrra

        Aww glad you had a nice dinner!

      No plans – I told the DH please, no balloons (HATE them!), no flowers (too $$$), no chocolate, let’s go out to dinner NEXT week.

      I’ll be making sweet potato soup with lime, ginger & coconut milk, and beet salad and zucchini pancakes – all with vegetables from the farmer’s market. Meatless Monday! One of the vendors added a bag with 2 big white-stem Chinese cabbages – FREE!

      So we’ll be having ginger pork with cabbage, and pickled cabbage later in the week! The DH said: “Somebody LIKES you!” I said, “But I like YOU best!”

      Happy VD to you!

      hmm I think I have been reading your blog for 4 months or so, it makes me so happy :).

      Valentines day, I got surprised with a rose and taken out for sushi. Then my BF tried to get a cute kitty toy for me out of one of those grabby machines but failed hahahaha!

      • Phyrra

        Yay! I’m glad to hear that Holly J :)

        And yummy sushi!

      Just wanted to say “hello” and I love reading your blog! Been lurking for a few months now (since Christmas time)!

      No major plans today as fiance is out of the country! At least the next best thing to a romantic night with the significant other is reading beauty blogs!

      Love all of your blog features (swatches, interviews, daily posts) and am always excited to see what you post next!

      As usual, I’m doing nothing for V-Day (actually I didn’t even wear ANY makeup, let alone anything pink or red today), I’m used to being single on V-Day and this year I actually am involved with someone who lives in England. He’ll be here … NEXT Monday. Lol.

      Also, I *think* I’ve been following you for about 8 months now, ever since I first got into mineral makeup. I think I found you when searching for swatches ^.^

      Hey Phyrra!

      I am a new reader! I am so glad that I found your great blog! :) I love your EOTD photos and you have great reviews! The content is organized well!

      We celebrated Valentines day over the weekend with a dinner at home!

      Hope you had a great one!!!!

      Hello, and Happy post V-Day to you! I have work today. I have been so busy lately, and I can’t seem to keep everything straight. I have to have my husband go to the Notary today so I can roll over some 401K money, and I have some chips in my windshield that need repairs. Hate those trucks with the mudflaps and big open tops that kick rocks up.

      I have been reading your blog for about 8 or 9 months now, and I am loving it!

      • Phyrra

        Ug, I hate those rocks, too. I’ve had 2 windshield crack and have to be replaced :(

        Glad to hear you’ve been reading for that long :)

      Hi Phyrra,

      Happy Valentine’s Day to you as well! My Valentine’s Day was actually spent watching Disney movies with my mum – it was time well spent in both our minds.

      I’ve been a lurker for 6 months now, I thoroughly enjoy your reviews and I love learning about new indie companies from you.

      • Phyrra

        Aww, yay for movies!
        Thank you for delurking to say hi :)

      Happy belated Valentine’s Day! Hope yours was lovely :)

      My sister (who currently is without a sweetheart) and I (whose sweetheart is currently 3000 miles away) spent the evening together. We went out for sushi and then to the mall where we hit sephora and a couple of other stores :)

      • Phyrra

        Yay! Sounds like a fun time with your sis :)
