While They Were Watching the Game

While other people were watching the Superbowl, Skylar and I headed for the mall.  And thankfully, it was pretty empty.  I surmise most people were glued to the tube.  Not me.

I took this pile of empty MAC makeup containers and brought them to the MAC Store

Tip: Every 6 empty MAC containers = 1 free lipgloss/lipstick so save them and turn them in for your freebie!

Four empty MAC containers

I traded them for a few other items and…..

…Prrr.  I love Prrr

It’s really iridescent and has great shimmer.  And you can play around with liners from Plum to Spice and change its look.  Super versatile and on your lips, it doesn’t look nearly as coral as in the tube.

I love MAC, period.

I also picked up a couple new-to-me MAC facial cleansers

I have serious love for This Stuff so it’s a hard act to beat.

Since it’s essential to have snacks with when going to the mall, I brought this snack bar with us.  A homemade Microwave Chocolate Peanut Butter & Oat Bar

And while other people were watching the game, I took advantage of the low 70s and sunny weather and went for a 20 minute run and then 20 minutes of yoga/lifting at home

This is what I saw.  I like this scenery better than football.

…This is what I had for a snack:  Special K bars

The underside is pure heaven.  Peanut Butter + Brown Sugar + Karo Syrup + Vanilla.  Perfect after a hard day at the mall.

From my last post about What I Know, it was fun to hear what you know.

And it seems there are tons of Maybelline mascara fans out there too.

And also I am glad that my discussion of Rules are Meant to be Broken resonated with you, too.  Not all “rules” are set in stone.  I always enjoy learning what rules you break, or would like to break.


1. Did you watch the Superbowl?

As you can see from this post, no.  I was way too busy buying makeup and being outside.

2. If you did watch the game, did you enjoy yourself?

3. If you didn’t watch the game, what did you do this weekend?

Fill me in on your weekend and what’s in store for your week?

P.S. If you’re just catching up on weekend posts, here are mine since Friday night.

Have a great week!

  1. Do you individuals have a facebook fan page? I seemed for one on twitter but couldn’t uncover one, I would love to turn into a fan!

  2. ooooh girl, you’re speakin my language with all those MAC bags!! And I never knew that you could get a free gloss with 6 empty containers!! Thanks for the tip! I will definitely be saving mine!! I LOVE the color of that gloss!! I recently got a similar color from Smashbox that I am just loving right now!


  3. Good for you on getting out into some beauty during the ‘bowl’! We were out on a boat in the wilderness–cold but supercool too. On the road and crappy connection, but wanted to say hi.

  4. That’d be the perfect time to go to the mall- while everyones watching the Superbowl. I went shopping just before and it was SO PACKED!!!

  5. We watched a few commercials and a few minutes of the game. Not into it at all!

    I’m so jealous that you had the option of going to the mall! Our stores still have primitive policies; they close at 6:00pm on Sundays!! I kid you not. I was talking to someone who lived in Los Angeles several years ago and they were like, “I’m going to Home Depot.” And I’m like, “It’s after midnight, no you’re not.” They’re like, “Uh, our stores are open 24 hours.” :shock: The west coast is so ahead of the rest of the country! lol

    1. Yeah the game was on at 330pm here (b/c it’s pacific time) and the stores are open til 9 or 10 at the malls. Target and other stores like that usually midnite or 24 hrs. And Home Depot, Rite Aid, groc stores, 24 hrs :)

      And it was 75F and sunny and the mall is open-air/outdoors so it was perfect. :) Not to rub it in or anything. lol

  6. Awesome time to go to the mall! I wanted to do a snow trip, but hubby wanted to watch the game. :-P Wow, that’s a huge cosmetics haul – sweet.

    The weather was perfect here too, lots of long dog walks and camera playing.

    1. Eh, sort of. I’ve never been a huge superbowl fan.
    2. I did from doing other stuff around the house. THe commercials weren’t even that good this year.
    3. Went out with sisters, shopped and tackled house stuff.
