    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 😀 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 😛 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 😛 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 😛 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…

    LUSH Lust List

    I have not been into a LUSH recently or even perused their website. I finally ran out of my Prince Charming body wash and headed to their site to see if they would be restocking this one for V-day. Alas, they are not but there are so many new things for V-Day and Mother’s Day this year! I am either hitting the store or placing an order because these look delicious! Giant Rose Bombshell – The regular size bath bomb is a long time fave, a giant size sounds heavenly. It weighs in at a whopping 24.6 ounces and I would probably try to use it for a few baths but I…

    K-Beauty Wishlist

    The 100 10 step skincare routine that has steadily been gaining popularity in the US; which is exciting news for those like myself who have always been curious but have limited access to products. Recently, K-Beauty products have been hitting the shelves in many beauty retailers and have become much more accessible. I have dabbled in some Asian skincare brands including; Shiseido, AmorePacific, Koh Gen Do, SK-II, Tatcha, Tony Moly, Dr. Jart+, SkinFood but now thanks to Korean specific beauty sites like Peach & Lily and Soko Glam, I have tons of new brands to explore. I’ve adopted most of the steps into my skincare routine, for those who aren’t familiar, here is a chart…

    Birthday Wishlist

    I was purchasing cough syrup this weekend and we get ID’d in MN because the DEA apparently thinks that people looking to manufacture drugs will purchase their cough syrup one bottle at a time rather than just purchasing the crude ingredients or I dunno – cases of cough syrup. Honestly, who got that bill passed? Rep. Fitz Steele – you jackass. The cashier asked me for my birth-date and as it came out of my mouth (in slow-motion), I realized that my birthday is next week. I almost slapped my own mouth. I hate my birthday, it is right up there with Valentine’s Day and Easter – I am unsure of why…
