    K-Beauty Wishlist

    The 100 10 step skincare routine that has steadily been gaining popularity in the US; which is exciting news for those like myself who have always been curious but have limited access to products. Recently, K-Beauty products have been hitting the shelves in many beauty retailers and have become much more accessible. I have dabbled in some Asian skincare brands including; Shiseido, AmorePacific, Koh Gen Do, SK-II, Tatcha, Tony Moly, Dr. Jart+, SkinFood but now thanks to Korean specific beauty sites like Peach & Lily and Soko Glam, I have tons of new brands to explore. I’ve adopted most of the steps into my skincare routine, for those who aren’t familiar, here is a chart…

    Fave Rom-Com Leading Gents

    We all knew this was coming, right?  I am just in a V-day mood, we busted out the decor this weekend and even though we don’t actually celebrate the holiday I re-watched all of my favourite movies. Admittedly, this list is a bit shorter but it seems that men don’t often reprise these types of roles like the ladies do but here they are! Tom Hanks – He is a legit American treasure, only someone so pure and kind could make you bawl your eyes out when a 13 year old boy and middle-aged woman’s relationship comes to a bitter end. I mean, the whole premise of that relationship in Big…

    Fave Rom-Com Leading Ladies

    Feel free to punch me straight in the face for using Rom-Com, blame it on a pretentious former co-worker of mine who turned me onto this asinine abbreviation for something equally asinine – the romantic comedy. Not being a particularly warm and fuzzy person, I watch my fair share of these sappy, wildly unrealistic, light on plot romps and I tend to enjoy them – I cannot explain it. I mean, they generally make you feel like your own love life is inadequate and that few people find their fairy tale ending but all of that aside, I still watch ’em. Part of the reason that I subject myself to this…

    Some January Empties!

    It looks as though I have not posted my empties in a bit – I usually don’t if I only have a couple of products but I am ready to have these out of my drawer and in the trash! Here are a few things that I have used up over the last few months: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer – This was a travel size that I used up, I have several samples to get through before purchasing a full-size. This is one of my favourite primers, it always makes my skin look smooth even if it really isn’t. Wet ‘n Wild Coverall Primer – This is another favourite primer, it goes…

    It Starts with You.

    Things that piss me off – the Doomsday Clock, a group of egomaniacs with a god complex (Bulletin of Atomic Scientists) casting predictions on when the world will end. What I find ironic and hysterical is that the clock was moved ahead due to the impending threat of nuclear warfare. What is even more ironic is that the clock is a result of the first atomic bombs being used in modern warfare in WWII. So back up, scientists invented nuclear weapons – the actual means that they are warning will end our existence, they feel the need to warn us of impending doom and want us to do something about…

    5 Thoughts On a Friday

    I am kind of enjoying these more free-form, stream of consciousness posts – here are 5 things that have been on my mind.     I have done a really good job at cutting dairy out of my diet but cheese and whole milk are my weaknesses. Whole milk has been easier to stop eating, I only use it in cereal and if I don’t treat myself to cereal then I don’t need it. Cheese though, I can literally eat cheese on anything and I do and too much of it. No shame. The narrator is really good which is part of their appeal and the characters are also a lot…

    First Impressions – Paula’s Choice

    I read a headline this morning, Do You Text & Drive – It Could Cost You. I have a correction to this, it should have read; Do You Text & Drive – You’re An Asshole & You Could Kill Someone But Since You Won’t Stop, Someone Had to Waste Their Time Instituting New Laws Because Again, You’re An Asshole. Why is that so hard? Who are we afraid of offending? If someone is doing something wrong, just say it – as a society, we are way too concerned with not offending people even when they are doing something wrong. People who text and drive deserve to be offended, they are offensive. I…

    My Life in Books Tag!

    I know that I have mentioned that I read a ton, I’ll read anything once – I found this tag on the Dreamland Book Blog and since I have been wanting to expand my content, thought that I would go for it. t’s a short, fun tag – enjoy! S – Summer Sisters, Judy Blume J – I don’t have a J book, how about one of my favourite authors – J.R.R. Tolkien 🙂 E – Endless Night, Agatha Christie Casino Royale, Ian Fleming – I love the Bond books, he is so much more dashing and suave in print. I feel that the movies really played up the sleazy, womanizing character…

    The Gift of Goddess Skin

    Just a short beauty post on this sunny day, the metro is blanketed in snow and while it certainly snarled travel plans – it is pretty to look at. Today I am sharing another item that I picked up with my Charlotte Tilbury order – this lovely, little travel trio that included three of her bestselling skincare items. For $59 you can try the Magic Cream, Goddess Skin Clay Mask and Wonder Glow – all of the items are tucked into a burgundy suitcase-esque carton with the brand’s signature rose gold embellishments. This would make a fabulous gift for just about anyone or in my case, an opportunity to have a few products on hand…

    V-Day Decor Inspo

    If I have to start showing my ID to purchase Tide Pods – I will fight some kids. If Robo-tripping and the new pod eating trend aren’t examples of the de-evolution of the human race, then I don’t know what it is. The dreaded V-Day is almost upon us, while I don’t celebrate the holiday and the BF is under the strictest direction that he doesn’t either, I think that the decorations get better every year! I only just got into decorating for V-Day in the last couple of years or so but it has quickly become a favourite. I think that I am going to DIY a few things this…
