    When I Grow Up…

    I found myself at the grocery store this afternoon behind a very elderly gentleman who asked the teenage cashier what he wanted to be when he grew up. I thoroughly enjoy people watching, listening to conversations which might be considered rude but I’m not stopping. It’s one of those questions that you think about and someone might ask you, maybe but it was fascinating to see this cliche conversation play out in real life and suddenly it didn’t seem so cliche. Then I got deep in the weeds with a very elderly gal behind me about grapefruits, I always end up getting chatted up by the elderly, I’m not sure…

    #wednesdaywisdom: The Please Shut Up Edition

    To start, this is meant to be humorous and not insult anyone, this is a round-up of some quotes that in my opinion have been so overused that they’ve gone from being nice adages to tired cliches (much like the phrase, tired cliche :P) Let’s get started! In all honesty, not bad advice but considering the source, makes absolutely no sense and is actually completely hypocritical. Single, independent women everywhere aren’t taking your shitty advice anymore, Bradshaw. Two girls in my graduating class got in a tiff over which one would use this as their senior quote. It’s a cute saying but let’s pack it away for a few decades…

    Top Ten Tuesday – Falling for Fall

    I tried, I honestly tried to embrace summer this year and not spend every hot, humid, miserable waking hour complaining about how much I hate summer and Minnesota and WASPS in over-sized SUV’s but I couldn’t it. I couldn’t do it because I hate summer, the hatred runs deep – the frizzy hair, the boob sweat, the electric bill that’s become as much as a car payment because of the glorious forced air. I can’t do it anymore, I am counting the days until fall and daydreaming of my favorite fall’ish things. No lie, I stocked up on candles weeks ago and haven’t been able to light a single one…

    Monday Might Have – Magic Cream

    Happy Monday 😛 I don’t think I have ever said that or Happy Friday in my life, I’m unsure if I ever will again. My Monday Must Have is a product that I go back and forth on even though it tends to get pretty amazing reviews. Now, I know that Charlotte Tilbury is a bit over-hyped, even though I like a few of her products I just don’t believe that they are all iconic. Also, can everyone take a moment to stop abusing that word? It’s used so often that I don’t think it means what people think it means…Magic Cream makes a lot of claims, it is supposed…

    First Impression Friday – The Zodiac Collection

    I can’t lie, ColourPop has released so many new products lately that I got a little jaded and when I saw this new collaboration with Kathleen Lights, I was going to skip it. I didn’t think that the palette looked super wearable but now that I have seen it and swatched it, I know I am going to get a lot of wear out of it. I purchased the bundle and though I haven’t worn anything yet, thought I would share a little peek: This twelve pan palette has purples, blues, browns and a stunning black with gold sparkle. Now, I wasn’t totally sold on The Capricorn being a black…

    MishiBox – Spring 2018

    I have been Halloween movie shopping (too soon?) for 31 Nights of Horror, I want to review some new classics for this year. FYE is the best place to go for gently used movies, in my opinion and they carry a ton of random merchandise. I noticed a display of K-Beauty boxes and well, obviously had to give one a go. I think that these particular boxes are made especially for sale at FYE and could differ from the actual monthly subscription box offerings but don’t quote me on that. I cancelled all of my subscription boxes because I had way too many samples piling up, I like it when…

    Top Ten Tuesday – Television Shows Based on Books

    My book list is getting a little light and since I burn through books so quickly, I have been trying to find some series to get into that I can enjoy for a while. I was surprised to see some popular television shows that were actually books while doing my research. I did know about some of these but some of them were a pleasant surprise! I have never seen a single episode of True Blood but this is the series that the show was loosely based on. The reviews are all over the place on this series but it could be a fun romp. I mean, vampires…so… I tried…

    5 Facts of Life According to Me

    So, I have some new makeup bits that I wanted to talk about but haven’t used them enough to give a full overview. I used one of the new KKW palettes this morning, it was amazing but I need to use it a few more times. I’m just a bit bored with product reviews and flat lays, I’ve been having fun with non-beauty related posts so I hope that’s OK with everyone <3 Mail stamped Confidential is infinitely more interesting than literally any other item in my mailbox especially if it doesn’t have my name on it. Back story here, our mail lady who, judging from her appearance I don’t…

    Friday Favourites

    I’m stuck inside on a Friday night because severe weather, good thing I have 900 candles on hand othat I should probably start lighting now just in case. Before the power or internet goes out, here’s a little reading material! Unpopular opinion – I never understood why people were so enamored with Steve Jobs like there wasn’t a whole team of brainy people backing him up. This article solidifies my less than glowing sentiments. I am sick and tired of hearing about climate change, I am tired of reading study after study about how it’s only getting worse. Someone needs to get serious about climate change, start taking away some…
