    The Makeup Wishlist Tag

    Has anyone seen the previews for this new Netflix show Ozark? I feel like the Ozarks and the locals who inhabit them have been given such a bad rap. From Deliverance to You’re Next one would think that hicks are just murderous maniacs. Now listen, I grew up around a lot of hicks (yours truly called her ropers shit kickers until about age 15), they are just regular people and it’s totally lame how they have been depicted in popular culture. The Ozarks are stunning but now you can’t visit them without worrying about getting axed by some hicks – can we stop with the hick-shaming? The cast is stacked…

    100+ Beauty Questions Tag: Part III

    Here is the third and final part of the 100+ Beauty Tag, I really had a lot of fun doing this and would love to hear other’s responses so let me know if you do it!! Super black and makes my lashes phat. Sure have and it was a waterproof mascara at that, it adhered to my eyeball and I had specks for most of the day – it makes me wonder what is in waterproof mascara? I have been loving gloss lately and do like to put some over lipstick, I think it is OK to be a little messier when wearing it this way. Both! It is a…

    100+ Beauty Questions Tag: Part II

    Here is the next batch of questions from the 100+ Beauty Tag that I saw first on lifewithlilred – let’s get to it! It was a Neutrogena tinted powder that they don’t make anymore and I wish they did because it was such a good powder, I would absolutely love to use it again! Hate is a pretty strong word and a pretty strong feeling to have about some complete strangers makeup. If there is some who could enhance their features more with more polished makeup, Lena Dunham but I don’t hate her for her unique makeup 😀 Never. Bronzer! Even if you are pasty pale like me, bronze that…

    100+ Beauty Questions Tag

    I love a good tag, (although I am pretty terrible at tagging people back) but I have been following along with Sarah’s responses to the 100+ Beauty Tag and it looked like too much fun to pass up! Her responses have been fantastic and so much fun to read so definitely check out her posts and here we go! So many brands, so little time. I am going to have to say Charlotte Tilbury which I rarely talk about on my blog but only because I feel that this brand can be very hit or miss for people and it is definitely not my everyday makeup. This is the brand…

    30 Questions No One Asks

    I was called Sir at the grocery store today, the cashier looks me dead in the face and says, Are you ready to check out, sir? I was gripped by hysterical laughter, I was in fact ready to check out but I had to pretend like I wasn’t so that I could go to the baby food aisle and collect myself. I didn’t want to make the cashier feel bad and she obviously had no intention of retracting the statement, hilarious. Last time I leave the house without at least some lipstick on 😀 I saw this tag on Root Report and I think that I have noticed it floating…

    Valentine’s Day Tag

    Tired of hearing about V-day? These are for you: This tag is from last year but I gave it a little reboot – enjoy! Gummie, cinnamon hearts – yea, you should only eat 1 or 2 but they are so delicious. I have an addition to this, I recently discovered these Sea Salt Caramels from Russell Stover and I hope that they are seasonal because I am addicted. Sweethearts suck, talk about Depression-era candy and I am allergic to strawberries. Worst choices ever but I guess I would have to take those tooth cracking, powdery pieces of chemical tasting sugar abominations. I mean, they are really gross – it can’t just…

    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…

    30 Beauty Questions Tag

    It’s Friday and we’re doing a tag, enjoy! I do! My mother bought it for me, it was a luminizing, loose powder by Neutrogena that I wish they still made. I used it all through college but it was discontinued years ago. Ah, the carefree days of only wearing powder 😛 Very black, buildable and plumping – the only formula that I feel gives me perfect lashes is Buxom and I cannot wear it often because it irritates my eyes! I am a medium coverage gal when it comes to foundation, I do wear full-coverage formulas but I sheer them out with a serum or glotion. Ooohhh, I don’t know if I…

    Halloween Tag!

    Like I needed another reminder that the internet is a dangerous, dangerous place – I was vegging in front of the computer last night and watched this compilation of people who had been turned into memes and how it basically ruined their lives. I ignorantly thought that the people who were the subject of the meme had willingly provided their image – not the case. In several for instances, the person’s image had been borrowed (stolen) by a random person from their Facebook, Myspace, etc and used for a meme. I just never thought that was the case, maybe because I use a lot of self-deprecating humor and would probably turn…

    500 Posts: A Reflection

    WordPress notified me that I have officially posted 500 times on my blog. Admittedly, I have cheated a little with the double posts for Halloween movies and I hope that the double posts aren’t overwhelming. I am still excited though! What have I talked about in these 500 posts – literally no idea. I started this blog years ago and posted a couple of times, then stopped posting for a year or so until a co-worker randomly found my blog and asked me about it – I had no idea that it was still hanging out in cyberspace. I decided to start posting again, the beauty niche had definitely quadrupled since…
