    Top Ten Tuesday – Summer Flicks

    That are completely lacking in substance or meaning because sometimes one just needs to take a break and lounge in a little vapid naivety. A look back at the fresh-faced teen queens and heartthrobs of my youth in some of their most forgettable roles, enjoy πŸ™‚ Can’t Hardly Wait – Starring Jennifer Love Hewitt circa the Neutrogena days and a whole host of other actors that we didn’t care about. It’s basically a movie about a group of high school kids at a graduation party. Hewitt gets dumped by her meathead boyfriend which creates an opening for the creepy nerd to declare his love for her. All of the high…

    Glossier Haul

    Glossier – the brand that I am not nearly cool enough to use but keeps sucking me in with their flawless marketing and minimal chic aesthetic. Just take my money. I have been waiting to use up the rest of my tube of Boy Brow before I placed an order for their new mascara, it’s been a tense few weeks as I was sure that it would sell out but I was in luck. There were also a couple of new products that I have been waiting to try and some of them I anti-hauled but purchased anyway because I’m a jackass. Judge me later, let’s get to the goodies!!…

    Top Ten Tuesday – Unnecessary Things I Spend Money On

    Since I have been trying to reduce the material things in my life, I have a heightened awareness of all of the crap that I don’t need but still buy. It is certainly hard to break the habit of consumerism especially when I live in close proximity to most anything – I need to move to the boonies, clearly. For the cost of two large coffees at most coffee chains, I can purchase an entire bag of coffee and home brew it. Getting take out coffee has become such a time killer for me since moving to the metro. If I am early or meeting up with someone, I just…

    Kitchen Tour

    So, you guys want to see my kitchen? Cool, because I literally have nothing else to talk about tonight and I just cleaned the shit out of it. Can I reallyΒ  call it a tour if it’s only 50 square feet of space? I love my kitchen, it’s not to everyone’s taste – very flea market chic, heavy on the kitsch but I like it. I don’t like how modern it is, my dream is to a) own a well-maintained home that was built in 50’s or b) build a customized replica. The colours and shapes from that era appeal to me for some reason, I have been feeling the…

    #wednesdaywisdom

    I am contemplating starting Boxycharm again because the June box looks pretty great and includes the Reina Del Caribe palette that I had on my recent wish list. The full spoilers for one of the boxes included a charcoal pencil and OFRA lipstick which I would not use but could give away. We’ll see, I have a hankering for a beauty box of some kind so I will have to keep an eye out for something special – let me know if you are trying anything awesome lately that you would recommend. Thanks for stopping by <3

    First Impression Friday – CosRX One Step Moisture Up Pads

    It’s more skincare! Are we shocked? I so far have not tried a single product from CosRx that I haven’t liked which is pretty major seeing as how my skin can react really poorly to new products for literally no reason. Nothing that I have tried from this brand has given me any issues! I have been using the One Step Original Clear Pads and these have been awesome at keeping my skin clear especially from blackheads which can be very stubborn to get rid of. I really love these and am keeping them in my routine but wanted to try the Moisture Up Pads because these have the added…

    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 πŸ˜€ Never. Bronzer! Even if you are pasty pale like me, bronze that…

    Anti-Haul #14

    It’s Memorial Day weekend in the states, the official kick-off to summer and apparently when Americans celebrate fallen war heroes with an asinine amount of sales. The last place I want to be on my three-day weekend is a mall but my inbox is overflowing with temptation and I feel the need for an anti-haul. Per usual, these are products that I personally do not feel the need to own but if you are into them, keep doing you πŸ™‚ Melt Cosmetics Gemini Palette – This palette looks stunning and I know that their shadows are amazing but I feel betrayed by them jumping on the palette bandwagon! This brand…

    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…
