    A Little Modcloth Haul

    I have listened to the Lore podcast for literally years, I love it – I would describe it as a collection of spooky real-life tales that are horror leaning but not terribly unsettling. I also really enjoy the narrator, he is very engaging and the tales are just long enough to get you hooked and then set out to find out more on your own. About a year ago, Amazon came out with a show called Lore and I was like, that looks stupid. But then today while loading up my podcast fix, I realized that the font used for Lore reminded me of something and it took me awhile…

    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…

    Wednesday Wisdom

    I love those days where you don’t plan a post and you think that you can just come home after work and put something together but then you have a work meeting that goes until 9 PM, 9 freaking PM and you’re in a surly-ass mood when you finally get home and get to wash your greasy face. Me, right now. Instead of a lovely collection of quotes for this Wednesday Wisdom, I just have some sage personal advice that I’ve collected over these 31 years. You’d think that this would be something that one would assess before having kids, a trip to Target will tell you otherwise. I find…

    Fall Tag!

    Guess what time it is? Time for a fall tag, my thoughts exactly 😛 It’s the first rainy, cool day that we have had in a few weeks and I am feeling the vibe. I saw this on tumblr, I don’t know how active this account is but the tag looked like a lot of fun and just what I needed this afternoon! I did skip some because I felt it was a little long. Ms. Frizzle which is pretty much my go-to for Halloween these days since I just have the wardrobe for it and don’t need to purchase new items generally. Any hot soup with crusty bread for…

    Halloween Decor Haul!

    I had today off for the sole purpose of finishing my shopping for Halloween decor. I wanted to be out early and home early because I can’t be bothered with people, so I am driving around at 6 AM and realized that the only stores open that early are grocery stores, Walmart and pharmacies. I haven’t been going into Walmart, I blogged about that a while ago because I just don’t love supporting them. I sucked it up and found some really cute things, I hope that my $34 goes to a good cause. Next stop was Target which didn’t have their Halloween stuff out even though their website said…

    Fall Decor Mood Board

    I was just perusing Pinterst when I came upon this article from Elle entitled; Outdated Home Trends We Hope May Never Come Back. And I’m like; That’s my entire apartment you whore. Someone’s personal style can be trendy without being driven by temporary trends – it’s called style, read a Vogue. Anyway, I have a four-day weekend for the simple reason that I just don’t want to be at work having to be nice to people. I feel that’s a good enough reason. My only agenda is to scope out every homeware store in a 40 mile radius and get some fall decor. By fall, I mean Halloween because I already…

    Wednesday Wisdom – Rushing Time

    Do you know what peeves me off? Time, just in general, I find it very irritating. Time doesn’t actually exist, it’s only 6:30 pm in Minnesota because we all have this understanding and choose to participate in this human contrived notion of time. And then on top of all of this time shit, we have all of these deadlines which is like time within time – time squared. We manage our time to the point that we don’t have any. It’s nuts, it drives me crazy, I’d like to get off the ride now. I just want to get up when the sun comes up, go to work, get as…

    Top Ten Tuesday – Reasons to Love America

    I tend to feel more patriotic on the anniversary of 9/11 than I do on the Fourth of July. I think it’s because while I know that the American Revolution occurred it doesn’t feel as tangible to me as the 9/11 attacks. I think it’s a fatal flaw of the shortsightedness of human beings, we can be very knowledgeable of what happened 50, 100, 150 years ago but the impact of these events seemingly fade with time. The events that are happening now are a very real example of its citizens either forgetting the mistakes of the past or choosing to ignore them. That aside, it’s still a pretty great…

    Friday Favorites

    Another Friday, another round-up of tidbits from around the web. Enjoy! I never knew that the fashion industry was so salacious, it is hard to see past the glitz and wonder what is happening behind the scenes. I will have to read this book to find out more, I guess it shouldn’t come as any surprise that someone is being exploited in such an opulent industry. I actually read something similar many years ago and always laugh at the poor fools frantically pushing the ‘Walk’ buttons 😀 My question is though, why waste the money to install buttons that are just for show? Seems silly and very American. Also, what…

    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…
