    When Love Isn’t Enough…

    Sheesh, this is a post that I never fathomed that I would be writing. I have been alluding to the fact that some stuff has been going on in my personal life but wasn’t sure what the outcome would be or if I wanted to share anything on my blog or not but since it will impact my bloggerlife, I guess I will. The BF and I have come to the decision to end our 6 1/2 year relationship and it really sucks. We have decided to be amicable and I don’t know if that makes it better or worse, I have only had one other ex-boyfriend and it was…

    Friday Thoughts

    I was planning to post a First Impression Friday of the Colourpop products that I recently purchased but I think I am going to wear them some more and report back. I didn’t love the overall look today but don’t want to count the products out yet. So, random thought post it is! And I am so freaking excited for it to arrive, I have a feeling it will be a little big but it’s still so cool. My vintage band t-shirt collection is so bitchin’, I need a Twisted Sister shirt though before I can really boast. Because it doesn’t feel like it, we had a string of too hot days…

    #wednesdaywisdom

    I was driving by a school today, the kids (not my kids, other people’s kids) are out for the summer and I realized that an empty school building looks eerily like a prison. I never noticed this when there were kids running around or parents shuttling to and from, it was somewhat startling. I guess it makes some sense as they are all public institutions so maybe it is the no-frills, beige exteriors and boring architecture that fostered this association. Remove the freedom, the laughter, the bustle and voila – children’s prison. In the US, you do get sentenced to 18 years of public education that at times, does feel…

    It’s a Rant Post…

    Pet-peeves, personal vexations, bete noires – we all have them, some of us more than others and I can admit that. I am very set in my ways, I am also very polite so people who annoy the shit out of me may never know until one day I am at the bursting point but that could take years. Instead of having said outburst, I will just sit here and methodically type out all of the things that really annoy the piss out of me. PSA to all of the annoying people in my life, aren’t you lucky I have a blog. It doesn’t just bother me, it makes me…

    #wednesdaywisdom

    I have been registered on Twitter since 2011, this is news to me as I don’t even recall why I signed up for it and don’t really understand it. I somehow linked my blog and my Twitter at some point so posts would sporadically appear from me but actual, intentional Tweets are few and far between. Seemingly, it is a platform for all of those opinions that we used to just internalize and keep to ourselves to be unleashed on complete strangers. The most interesting thing that I have discovered about Twitter is that it has a ‘night-mode’ which I think is pretty cool and have started using this as…

    1 in 400 Trillion

    Oooohhh, so the new season of 13 Reasons Why was released today and I am of two minds about this series. On the one hand, if it encourages someone to talk about depression, anxiety or any mental health issue that they are experiencing then that’s awesome. On the other hand, I feel like it romanticizes suicide and glorifies how shitty people are going to feel in the aftermath. You don’t need to leave tapes behind for people to feel awful after they lose someone to something so tragic. Losing someone to suicide is the most inexplicable pain that a person can experience, the guilt is incredible and you will spend…

    Confessions of a Beauty Junkie

    I just finished a documentary about the Catholic Church and had a really ranty post planned but I think that I will save that for another day. Serious posts take more time and often more energy to crank out than the more fun ones so we’ll keep it fun tonight. As a self-proclaimed beauty junkie and part-time beauty blogger, I’d like my readers to think that I live in this technicolor world of whimsy but often times it’s just kind of a hectic mess behind the scenes with lots of laying with my face in the couch and talking to my cats. You are presented with the more polished version…

    Rainy Day Ramblings

    What is it about a change in the weather that gets me so distracted? Only drastic changes, if it is snowing for 6 months – that’s fine but we just went from 22 inches of snow, to mid-70’s and now rain. I literally have snow boots, rain boots, a coat, a slicker, a cardigan and a pair of sandals in my car. I mean, just in case because we don’t know what’s going to happen at this point. I am pretty sure that I mentioned it, I just finished the episode where Jimmy Barrett spills the beans to Betty about his wife and Don. Also, the episode where they go…

    On a Sunday

    Chilling with the cats, watching The Strain and nothing to blog about. I was going to do a round-up of my favourite makeup brushes but they are all dirty because I use them everyday 😛 So, we’ll just have a random post for this evening. And I’m less than happy about it. First off, allergies. Second, anyone with a square-foot of lawn and a power tool of some kind will now be in their yard dinking around until October. What are they doing? Who knows, they don’t even know. I don’t get the yard concept, we lay waste to acres of naturally occurring vegetation to build rows of pre-fab homes…

    A Haunting in my TV Room

    Tonight on Unsolved Mysteries: I think this kitchen table that we inherited from the grandparents is haunted. Stick with me, I hate this table which is completely irrational but it just irritates me. It shouldn’t as it’s a very nice, old, sturdy farm table that was a perfect fit for the kitchen that we used to have it in but there is just something about it. Right now, it’s in a mostly unused room in the apartment with a TV on it and I’d really like to get rid of it. I don’t even like watching movies in there with the table. But if I sell it, I feel like…
