    Product of the Week – Caudalie

    Update – I am smitten with the tarte Clay Stick foundation. I have been wearing it for the last couple of days and the shade turned out to be perfect. The consistency is so creamy and blendable, it is not full-coverage but it does a wonderful job of enhancing the skin and covering most issues. I was a little hesitant but it turned out really lovely! Anyway, the product of the week this week is grape water – not just any grape water though – $18 grape water in a can by Caudalie. This is not something that I would typically purchase because I don’t need extra moisture on my face most…

    Best of June and Some Empties

    I hate it when you provide someone with very specific instructions and they aren’t adhered to. In this case, no fucking tomato – please and thanks. I didn’t say it like that and it doesn’t matter anyway because I got tomatoes. It’s not that I don’t like tomatoes, I am a fan of the tomato but not these tasteless, colourless, mealy excuses for them that are sold in super markets and slung on entrees. It’s homegrown, farmer’s market or no fucking tomatoes. And I know that there are starving people across the globe which is precisely why I ate said nasty so-called tomatoes, they tasted like shame and guilt. Side…

    Wednesday Reveal – June BoxyCharm

    PSA – if you are swimming in a fresh water lake, you could contract things like swimmer’s itch. I just find it unbelievable that people seem surprised by this. Especially in the Land of 10,000 Lakes – who are you people?! It’s a lake, there is feces in it and if you don’t know that then I don’t know how to help you aside from telling you that you are swimming in a fresh water lake and there’s feces in it. Oh, you let your toddler swim in it? Probably should have done your research, that’s your job, as a parent. #sorrynotsorry It’s a small thing that is indicative of  larger trend,…

    First Impression: tarte Clay Stick

    I wonder if UPS people know how much joy they bring to people who have been obsessively tracking their packages and literally bolt to the door when it finally arrives? It must be a very rewarding career 😀 I was going to share my Sephora haul but I feel so weird about sharing hauls, which is weird because I love reading haul posts but it makes me feel weird. How many times can I say the word weird? I am super into makeup but I also read and do other things, just so you know 😛 I dunno, I’ll think about it. Let’s talk about how many face mists I…

    Dear Diary, Google It

    This is my response to pretty much any question that I don’t know the answer to. There is such vast knowledge available to us and we should be taking advantage of it as often as possible. Here are some of the things that I learned today, some of it may be totally useless: Was Barry Goldwater in need of psychiatric help? I read that the Goldwater Rule is being tested over professionals weighing in on the mental state of The 45. Goldwater was not mentally unstable, the rule was enacted after an expose regarding his mental state was published with opinions from doctors who had never treated nor met him. This…

    Trying On: MAC Cosmetics

    So, per usual I am dinking around on social media – wasting time and came upon this post about how some new Kim Kardashian makeup product sold out in less than 15 minutes and she made 14 million dollars. The caption stated something along the lines of, The idolization of these people is a sign of the end of times. And I am over here thinking, really? Of all the shit that has gone down in the last 10 years, hell the last 2 years and this really put you over the edge? This is your sign that Judgement Day is upon us? The Kardashian Klan doing what they do,…

    Sample Saturday – Clinique

    My neighbors are excavating their yard, well they have been for the past two years. I think they put a rain garden in the front, I can appreciate that but the backyard is a disaster. It’s either being turned into a bomb shelter or, serial killing. I swear, they are among us – who needs a trench that big?! What is it going to be used for? At least it is supposed to storm this weekend, then they can knock it off with the excavator. Honestly. Side note, MAC is apparently at ULTA now? When did this happen? I admit, I bought a couple of things – nothing major since…

    Product of The Week – Eva NYC

    My foundation is literally crumbling off my face – like any foundation that I have tried in the last few months and it is driving me insane! I know that I mentioned before that my dermatologist was telling me that my skin has been very dry and this could be a result of second puberty. Yea – it’s a thing but don’t believe everything you read on reddit. As women we get to look forward to first puberty, second puberty and menopause so pretty much a decade of just bullshit. When do I get to go through Kylie Jenner puberty? I mean honestly, all I got was dry skin. It could…

    Wednesday Reveal – June Sephora Play!

    Another Wednesday, another…no, I am kidding! I have not been posting the last few Sephora Play boxes because they have not been great and I feel like a jerk complaining about a $10 sample box. Honestly though, they have been lame! June was fabulous though and I definitely wanted to share. I don’t know what the theme is – something to do with summer, the bag has little bathing beauties on it? Are they themes, is it a catch phrase – I just don’t know. Here is what came in my box: OUAI Rose Hair & Body Oil – First off, this stuff smells ah-mazing!! It doesn’t spray, it spews…

    Blur-Fect

    I have been looking for a body modification artist in the Minneapolis area and now my Instagram feed is all split tongues and extreme gauging. No judgement. I just want a hole punched in my cartilage so that I can stack little hoops in it. I don’t have any piercings because they don’t heal, but I think an open wound heal, right…? But apparently what I want isn’t a regular piercing, it is considered a cartilage modification. The best that I have seen so far is by brookebittenspiercing but she is CT based. Sad face. But how super neat is this: I already shared some products from my Milk Makeup…
