ELF haul

So I recently discovered ELF Cosmetics. And they're pretty awesome. They're really inexpensive (almost everything is $1) because they don't spend a lot of money on packaging or advertising, they get really good reviews on mua, and they don't test on animals. Seriously. How rad is that?

I just bought some stuff online, spent a total of $24.95 (that includes shipping), and got all of this stuff:
All for $25. How awesome is that? You're lucky to find just 2 cosmetics that add up to $25.

Also, I got my hair cut today. Nothing too dramatic, just a few inches off and re-layered. I really like it. I also bought some stuff on the cheap at the Body Shop from the $2 bin. And I made brownies for Brad. So after all of my over-the-top girlishness today, I mowed the lawn.

Ate today: mixed veggies and spring rolls from Panda Express with sweet and sour sauce; pretzels; 1 slice homemade veggie pizza; no sugar added moo bar; 1.5 brownies (plus some batter on the side of the bowl)

Active today: walked around the mall; mowed front and back yard (total of 1.25 hours); treadmill walk/run 30 minutes; pilates 20 minutes; stretch 10 minutes

Not bad. I could have done without the brownie, and I wish I would have woken up in time to eat breakfast and get my metabolism going, but overall I'm happy with today.

OK...I've known about elf for a while now, but when did they get mineral makeup and do they ship to Canada?! I'm really picky about makeup ingredients which is why I never buy from them but if they're making mineral makeup now...

Gah! They're even having a big sale on the mineral makeup when you use the code 5for5minerals!

I don't ever buy make-up and having been using the same make-up since freshman year of college, but seeing as it's almost out, this is really tempting. Does the feminist in me still hate that I have to wear make-up to make myself attractive? Probably. But it just looks so nice... and shiny... and I bet it'll feel nice to have it on my face.

@Caitlin: My take on make up is this: I like wearing it because I think it does make me look more attractive. However, there are days where sleeping in is much more appealing than putting on make up, and I'm fine going through the day without it. I don't feel any less attractive or confident without make up, and I think my inner feminist feels good about that.
