    Blogmas Kick-Off: Beauty Advent Calendars

    I clearly cannot contain myself anymore so I am kicking off Blogmas a day early because I just want to talk about all things Christmas. Now watch, by like December 22nd I will be tearing down the tree and tapping out but we’re starting strong 🙂 I feel like Blogmas is somewhat of a blog advent calendar since you post each day up to the 25th so what better way to kick it off than with a round-up of some seriously stunning beauty advent calendars? Unfortunately, many of these are not available in the US so I won’t have prices for all of them but a girl can dream! There…

    Quick Veggie Chili Recipe

    Before we get to this quick and non-tasteless recipe, I have a short story time. I had to stop at the store last night on the way home because I didn’t have any jalapenos for this chili recipe. It’s snowing, the roads are slick as shit but I make it to the store and out of the store with no issue. Then, I am trucking across the parking lot and I walk in front of this SUV that was on but not driving, she was just sitting in the spot parked so it’s not like I walked out into traffic. This bitch drives into me! Are you kidding me?! Sure,…

    We Get It – You Smoke Pot: A Rant

    Magic Dragon. Bambalachi. Yellow Submarine. Black Bart. Dr. Giggles. Kentucky Blue. You know what I’m talking about. I’m talking about Railroad Weed. That’s right. The Devil’s Parsley. Skunk. Splim. Splam. Mooster. Side Salad – Detective Monk on weed 😀 This is a rant because I have a lot of opinions and feel the need to share them. I’ve had it with Melt Cosmetics and their obnoxious glamorization of smoking reefer. There, I said it. I purchased most of the Hot Box collection that came out a while ago but they’ve lost their damn minds with the release of Smoke Session. The promotional ad that was put out a few days…

    Best of November

    We are already at that time of year where I leave for work, it’s dark and then I leave from work and it’s dark so I don’t have a lot of time to get blog photos taken. I do have like 3 strands of lights leftover from tree decorating so we’ll try to make this happen but I don’t think they’ll be great quality. I don’t want to skip posting because I don’t have my own photos to use but I also don’t love using internet images or snips in posts too often. Anyway, here are some things that made my November a little better! Here’s the deal, I don’t…

    Hey Kweeen!

    Kim & Kylie have officially dropped at ULTA, you can now purchase a variety of lips kits and fragrances in numerous stores. That’s all fine and well until I walked into work this morning and there were 45 pairs of Kim’s nipples staring me down. Have you seen these bottles?! I think that they are created in her likeness, I mean, Kim is known for being naked most of the time so this shouldn’t have been a surprise. I was still shocked though, I guess I didn’t know that they were so life like or maybe it was the fact that the display is smack in the middle of the…

    Friday Thoughts

    I got up early today even though I didn’t have to be to work until noon but then I was like, You know what you’ve never tried? A cut crease, let’s do it. Ask me how long that took me and I don’t really get the appeal, maybe I just don’t have the eye shape for it but I can’t say I’ll be trying it again any time soon. The thing is though, I wear about 4 different looks to my day job with Friday being a wild card but they are all pretty boring so now I feel like I should just be testing out all of these makeup…

    Thanksgiving Traditions

    Well, Thanksgiving is officially in the bag and I can’t say I’m disappointed. It was a fun day, all of the food came out quite satisfactory if I do say so myself. I realized how much I love my stand mixer and really need to get it out more often than like the 3 times a year that I use it. Many of my friends were heading out shopping but I am staying in for the evening, I remember the days when some stores wouldn’t even be open on Sundays and now retailers are opening on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. I also had a few things to do in order…

    Holiday Palette Recommendation: Friendcation

    Can we talk about how clean my kitchen is? I mean, my apartment is usually pretty clean because there really isn’t an excuse for it not to be but I deep cleaned the kitchen today and it feels amazing. I think one of the things that I am most thankful for everyday is the life that I have been able to build for myself. It hits me when I am sitting alone in my living space, just taking in how truly lucky I am. I’ve talked about my childhood on here before, it was a mess, we had nothing and it just feels good to feel safe and secure in…

    Beauty Blogger Tag!

    Me getting out of bed this morning, I can’t wait to come home and go back to bed. This time of year is such a chore for me, I need a career that takes a gap between December to February. I don’t know what that would be but sounds perfect. The cashier at Hobby Lobby complimented the ornaments I picked out and my response was, They are part of your Jonestown collection but what I meant was Funkytown and not the hippie compound where they drank the poisoned Kool-Aid and probably skipped decorating for Christmas. That’s how tired I am, now she’s going to go shopping for the Jonestown collection…

    What I’m Watching

    I realized that I am jumping the gun a little with the holiday posts and decided to slow my roll 😀 I’m that jerk who claims that they could take or leave Christmas, until I get the tree out and… I just struggle with the concept of the holiday, the Christian celebration compared to the commercial Santa cultural celebration as some people refer to it as. I don’t get it, everyone wants to celebrate Christmas but skip the asses in pews part? I think over half of Americans celebrate a non-religious holiday, again, as a modern society we pick and choose what traditions we eschew but Christmas will have to…
