    Spring Releases Anti-Haul

    I took a couple of days off from blogging because I didn’t realize that having these teeth removed would be such a giant pain in the ass. When I got home after surgery, I was just kind of sitting there thinking, this is fine. But then I fell asleep and woke up and it wasn’t fine, I have one infected socket and one dry socket which is extremely painful. Which, they told me the day of the procedure that it would be but I guess I didn’t believe them because it’s not like they are doctors or anything. I haven’t had solid food in like a week and have been…

    What I Got (Myself) for My Birthday

    I have no desire to get out of bed today, so apologies that all of these photos were taken from my bed 😛 It’s amazing, it only took 25 minutes to have four teeth removed but the pain has lasted like 30 hours. I feel like there should be some correlation between the length of the procedure and recovery but that’s apparently too much to ask. Also, I haven’t had any caffeine in three days and it’s misery. However, I did not come onto my dentist under sedation so overall, I think it went pretty well. For today’s post, I am sharing my birthday haul, I hope that you enjoy!…

    The Beauty Fridge Arrived!

    So, I was reading this article today about a case of child abuse in Minneapolis and I’m like – how hard is it to not abuse kids? Or animals for that matter, don’t have kids, don’t get a pet – it’s not like we are just issued these things and obligated to take care of them. It’s optional and it drives me nuts that people are so incredibly dumb. It just surprises me that people have to pass a test to become a US citizen but anyone can have kids or get a pet – there should be some kinda’ test to weed out the idiots. Especially in a case…

    Blogmas Day 25: Best of 2018

    I hope that you had a lovely Christmas, for my final Blogmas post I rounded up all of the products that I really loved in 2018. Many of these items are a part of my daily routine that I have repurchased numerous times, enjoy! pixi Peel & Polish – This is a potent enzyme peel that I use once or twice a week depending on if my skin is behaving or not. It helps with breakouts and texture and it’s not terribly expensive. Missha Flash-Up – Hands down the best sunscreen that I have ever used, it doesn’t break me out and works as the perfect luminous base for foundation.…

    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…

    Three Months of Halo Kiwi

    I have to preface this post with stating that I was very skeptical of Tati releasing skincare vitamins, not because she doesn’t have amazing skin but she has also talked openly about how she managed her acne through antibiotics, botox plus she uses a ton of expensive skincare and other beauty treatments. There’s obviously a lot more going into her skincare regiment than supplements and I skipped on her first product because it was crazy expensive and I already take a cocktail of supplements for my skin but the Kiwi Seed Skin Booster intrigued me. What interested me the most is that it claims to inhibit bacteria growth, I only…

    Blogtober Day: XXII – The Problem With Fake Reviews

    This isn’t a fall related post but I think it’s an important discussion since I talk about brand transparency and being a smart consumer on my blog and wanted to share my thoughts on the Sunday Riley instructing employees to post fake reviews as part of their job debacle. If you haven’t read the email that was sent out to employees, it was shared by a former employee who posted it in a subreddit and you can check it out here. There’s a lot in this email that irritates me; not only were employees told to post reviews about SR products, they were also told to post fake reviews about…

    Beauty Insider Appreciation Event – What Did I End up With?

    I know that not everyone finds haul posts very interesting, I have tried everything at least once so I will give a mini review as well but will definitely revisit these products at a later date with more info. Did I stick to my list? Yes and no, I did skip on some things and chose a few based on guru recommendations, here’s what I came home with! Most of my purchases were skincare, these kinds of sales are a great opportunity to snag some products that never go on sale. I chose two products from belif because I hadn’t tried the brand before and their products are rumored to…

    August Trash Talk

    Before we get into the beauty trash – is anyone using the Gutenberg Editor and liking it?  I don’t get it, the blocks don’t make sense to me and I just feel like I have to do a lot of clicking to insert content and the spacing comes out wonky – I just don’t like it. I’m generally pretty accepting of updates and new apps but this one has been a struggle and I went back to the Classic Editor. Am I just getting old? Is this the first sign that I am no longer able to learn new technology?! Technology-schmechnology. We are literally inundated with more technology than we…

    Best of August

    Everyone around me seems to be surprised at how quickly this year is passing and I am over here like; Is it Halloween yet? I just love this time of year, I know that spring time is traditionally considered the rebirth of life and new beginnings but for me, it’s fall. I think it’s a lot to do with the back to school season and feeling like you are embarking on something new. It’s always felt like a season of transition for me and I look forward to that feeling every year. Here’s a peek at what I was loving this last month of summer! aromatica Rosemary Refresh Toner –…
