    Holiday’ish Wishlist

    I have already said that I am not huge into Thanksgiving, I don’t get it, I don’t like pumpkin pie (or squash pie since that canned pie filling has like .00001% actual pumpkin), I’m skeptical of the whole story behind Thanksgiving – I Just have a lot of issues with the holiday. I think that this year I am just doing a ton of appetizers since I don’t eat turkey and the alternatives are pretty loathsome. Like, tofurkey? I mean, who thought of that? More like to-fuckery, I can’t do it. So, I’m looking through all of these appetizer recipes and like 90% of them are labeled; World’s Best, The…

    Blogtober – Day IX: Holiday Wishlist

    Would an anti-haul post be complete without a follow up wishlist? I think not. Now, I am more than likely not purchasing any of this, I have been using the same makeup items for a couple of months now and I think this is a sign that I don’t need more makeup or I am bored of it. I keep thinking that one day my lust for makeup will be sated but this has not happened. If brands would slow their roll with all of these releases, that would be great. Two things here, this palette is pretty boring and I cannot work with the ABH eyeshadow formula so why…

    Top Ten Tuesday – VIB Wishlist

    I was going to share my Michael’s Halloween Haul but first I was like; slow your roll – it’s too early and second, I purchased a few things from their vintage collection and I have to say – it’s all kinda’ terrifying. I have said this before, Halloween was infinitely scarier 50 years ago. The jack-o-lanterns look like human heads! Anyway, I was not prepared for all that and we’ll do aΒ Sephora wishlist instead but not just any wishlist, the VIB Sale wishlist! In all honesty, I am not super pumped for this sale or new makeup in general so this will mostly be a list of skincare/haircare that I…

    Summer Wishlist

    I feel like I am in a shopping mood but when I attempted to do some shopping this weekend, I only came home with two pairs of pants! I have been binge-watching CSI Las Vegas almost every night, nothing makes you feel better about your personal struggles than watching grotesque homicide investigations. I am going to the mega mall this weekend though and have some idea of where I am going and what I am getting. So, this isn’t as much of a wishlist as it is a shopping list but we will see how inspired I will be once I arrive at my destinations πŸ˜€ First stop is IKEA…

    Rainy Day Wishlist #2

    I am in a shopping mood but not for what I should be shopping for which is a new car. I have test driven quite a few but nothing feels right, I know exactly how my current car should feel but other cars feel so strange. I’m over the whole process already, I want to shop for other things now πŸ˜› I have to start with some Charlotte Tilbury because I have been drooling over her new limited edition products for literally weeks but I just can’t commit. I don’t know why, $53 seems really expensive for 4 eyeshadows but her new quads both look right up my alley. She…

    Sephora VIB Spring Sale Wishlist!

    Do you ever read a book that is so freaking good that you have to start it all over? I just finished The Legacy by Yrsa Sigurdardottir and it was amazing. I tend to really like her books but this one is definitely a new fave. It’s not for the squeamish, there are some pretty gritty scenes and intense themes but it was fantastic. I hope that this is just a taste of the Nordic thrillers that are releasing this month. While I have not received my paper coupon (do they still send those), the VIB Rouge sale starts April 13th and since I am making a conscientious effort to…

    Currently Coveting: Volition Beauty

    It seems like there is a new beauty brand launching every minute of every day. I don’t recall the beauty industry being so saturated when I was a kid and would go with my mom to the makeup counter. There were like 5 brands and generally, she would purchase all of her items from one counter. Now there are 100’s of brands pedaling much of the same bullshit and generally new brands don’t interest me. Seen it, seen it, seen it. They think their no-name products are worth how much?! I took a second look at Volition Beauty mostly because of their packaging and some ingredients that caught my eye…

    Riley Rose Want List

    Do you ever put off doing something for an irrationally long time because you are convinced that it will be the most terrible thing you have experienced to date but when you finally take care of said thing it took about 10 minutes and wasn’t that bad. You convince yourself that next time you will just suck it up and do it full-well knowing that this has been your pattern of behavior for the last 10 years and will be until the day you die. Same. I just found out that Riley Rose is opening a location in a suburb near me and I am super excited. This beauty store…

    A Case of Too Many Cases

    The BF watches a lot of foreign films which tend to be pretty interesting but inevitably what ends up happening is that I am glued to the television while he is dinking around! While he owns most of them, I’ve probably actually watched more of them. I give Bluebeard a 9/10 – I don’t know what he thought of it since he wasn’t the one watching it πŸ˜› We purchased new phones this weekend which I find irritating – they cost way too much for how long they end up lasting. Mine is still in good condition but I also don’t really take it everywhere, it lives in my purse…

    Spring Beauty I’m Excited About

    According to the BF there are two types of people when it comes to the film The Usual Suspects – those who think it’s alright and those who love it. I told him that it was the best fucking movie ever made so apparently I fall into the latter group πŸ˜› I’m sorry, that last half hour as the detectives realize that Kint’s story was all bullshit that he was making up on the fly while he is strolling away – I could watch it 100 times and still be mesmerized. Spacey turning out to be a predatory sleazebag definitely tainted the movie a bit for me, the script and…
