Meow Simple & Guilty Pleasures Swatches

I was super happy to find my Meow order waiting for me in the mailbox!   Yay!  I ordered a bunch of samples of the new collection(s), Simple Pleasures and Guilty Pleasures.  These are all swatched over Detrivore Primer.  I won a contest for naming one of the colors in the collection, Reality TV.  As I prize I win a full size of that color so I don’t have a swatch of that one yet.

DRAW At The Olympia Farmers Market

DRAW was invited to host a booth at the Olympia Farmers Market for National Animal Awareness Day.   It was a gorgeous day and a ton of people came out.   We had four adoptable dogs with us, Pokey, Luka, Mia and Dillon.  They all soaked up the love and were great examples of a DRAW dog.  The two littles have applications pending.

The booth:

Luka looking super cute in his Adopt Me vest.   Look at his poor little ear nubbins….someone cut them off with scissors.   😦

Pokey soaking up the love:

“I was hiding under your porch because I love you.”

“Hey, I like the chair!  This makes people laugh and come over and pet me!”

Dogs, Hats, The Big Easy and Urban Wild Life

What can I say….life has been busy!    The weather has finally gotten nice and I have been staying busy doing some landscaping and yard work.  While I was out in the back yard I heard the dogs causing a ruckus so I went to investigate.   That’s when I saw this little cutie hanging out in the apple tree.   I ran and grabbed my camera and got a couple of good photos.  Then I heard a growling pretty close to my right ear.  Momma was warning me that I was too close to her baby so I got the hell out of there and left momma and baby raccoon alone.

I got one of my cool hats from Topsy Turvy Designs.  It’s totally amazing and I’ll definitely be taking it to New Orleans with me:

I promise to get better photos of it soon.  Please check out there etsy store as they have the most divine hats I ever seen and they will do custom work for you.

Speaking of New Orleans….I’ll be performing in the New Orleans Burlesque Festival!  The producers emailed me and said they had a handful of applications that they didn’t have room for in the scheduled shows.  So they added another showcase and asked me to perform!    Yay!   The only thing I know is that I’ll be performing at the House Of Blues in a late night show after the competition on Saturday night.   Check it out!

And finally DRAW will have a booth at the Olympia Farmers Market for Animal Awareness Day on Saturday, July 24th.  Little Miss Pokey will be there, representing rescue dogs and trying to find herself a forever home!

My LaurEss Order

I decided to try the LaurEss foundation because of a recommendation.   I ordered on 7/4/10 and received my package on 7/10/10.     I ordered all samples and paid $13.36 which included $1.56 in shipping.

I got foundation samples of the Minimalist Foundation in Soft Yellow and Pure Yellow.   I also got blush samples in Passion and True Love.    For shadows I got samples of Gem Light Tigress, Star Light in Celestial and Glistening Lip Gloss in Peppermint.   I also received a free sample of Gem Light in Irresistible.  It arrived nicely shrink wrapped to apiece of cardboard so it was very secure.  The samples come in clear jars with labels on the top with the company and color name on top.  This is my kind of packaging.

Swatches!   From left to right: Star Light Celestial, Gem Light Irresistible and Tigress, Matte Blushes in Passion and True Love with Glistening Lip Gloss in Peppermint on far right.   All in direct sunlight over Detrivore Primer:

So far I really like everything I’ve played with.   The Pure Yellow was definitely too dark and I think with one scoop of White,  Soft Yellow will work.  I’ll let you know how it works once I get a chance to try it!

Ugh, I was so happy to see these in my mailbox last night!   It was nice out today so I went ahead and swatched everything I got.  I ordered on 6/25/10 and received my order 7/6/10.   I paid a total of $16.   Look at all the pretties:
