    Pretty in Poutmud

    The weather has me under the weather, the heat and humidity have been oppressive lately. I get heat blisters from even moderately warm wind and my lips have been  cracked and peeling lately. It stresses me out, if my mom showed her age anywhere it was around her mouth and I do have the beginnings of teenie wrinkles. Sad face. I have a love hate relationship with lip scrubs, I think I use them too aggressively and it feels as though I am shredding my lips. But I was also desperate to take care of some dry skin that was left over from the heat rash. The sales gal at…

    Jaclyn Hill x BECCA Palette – A Review and Other Ramblings

    I love house scents; candles, wax melts, potpourri (so dated, I know), essential oils – anything to keep my apartment fresh. I picked up this citrus Glade today and my apartment smells like a horror movie! OK, not actual horror movies but the scent is eerily similar to what my grandmother used in her guest bedroom where we watched loads of contraband horror flicks. Not that we were supposed to of course, I have no idea how we managed to get away with talking her into renting some of those movies. Many a sleepless summer night back in the 90’s 😜 Anyway, it just always amazes me how a smell can…

    What She Wore – When She Got the Job Edition

    Yep – woop, woop! After what seemed like a lifetime and multiple interviews later, I am the one and could not be more excited. Thanks for all of the well wishes, they definitely helped keep me optimistic through this whole process <3 Here is what I wore when I was trying to keep my composure and not bear hug my new boss 😉 I rarely use this post shave balm by Nivea as a primer but when I do it is because I need something that is going to last more than all day. This stuff is super sticky and I knew that it would get me through my workday…

    Taste Of TooFaced

    Ahhhhh! I think I am back, but I don’t want to jinx it after 2’ish days without power or internet. Not going to lie, it was really nice not being constantly plugged into social media for a bit – the BF kept telling me to use the 4G (I don’t even know what that is). I don’t consider the blogosphere social media, I am talking Facebook or Twitter and I think it is time to cut the ties. As soon as I started reading my feed it seemed like the world was on fire and it might be but I think that Facebook is a major platform for misinformation and…

    July Wishlist

    I didn’t do too bad sticking to last month’s wish list, I skipped on 1 item altogether and was sadly underwhelmed by another that I chose to pick up after much  deliberation. I am trying to be more conscientious about overly-hyped releases and only purchase things that I truly think I would use. Other bloggers’ reviews are so helpful and are part of the reason I enjoy blogging so much! Anyway, here is what I have my eye on for the month of July: First up is this new Spackle Mist from Laura Geller, I enjoy a couple of different Spackle formulas already and the mist application intrigues me. I…
