    Going Self-Hosted…!

    I just read this fascinating article about the ‘people rental’ business in Japan and am somehow not shocked at all that this is a thing! I mean, I am somewhat surprised that some of the available rentals are infants (it sounds like they are accompanied by their parents) but I can totally understand the niche that this service satisfies. The extremes that people will go to in an effort to cultivate a perfect image is unsettling but a stand in mom for those who have lost their own? A kid to take to the movies, a grandmother to take flowers to – people have found a way to have human…

    World of Legendary Parties – Drawer V

    Today’s treat is a Pocket Pout in the shade Jessica Red which is a lovely true red shade that will be perfect for the holiday season. I cannot find any information about this product so perhaps it was discontinued or only available in this box? I love the little lip print, how stinking cute is that!? I also like that this comes with a teenie mirror right in the compact because you’d definitely need a mirror if you wanted to touch up with this on the go. The compact is the trademark oxblood with gold embellishment, very lovely. I haven’t tried it yet or even swatched it because I don’t want to…

    On the 1st Day of Blogmas – A Christmas Tag

    Or holiday if you’d rather, I personally celebrate Christmas and that’s what I’ll use. Anyway, I found this tag via The Enthusiast and what better way to kick off Blogmas than with a bunch of festive, albeit cliche questions?! If you want to do this tag too, I would love to read your responses so be sure to tag me!   National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, not everyone’s cup of tea but this movie reminds me of our family Christmases growing up – pure mayhem. I have almost always had a white Christmas, I actually get really anxious if we don’t have snow around Thanksgiving – which we don’t, currently and it’s 50 degrees…

    August Wishlist

    Can you guys believe that it is almost Halloween, it isn’t actually but I am getting the decor out now. Just to dust off and assess 😛 I was going to post my monthly favourites tonight but the weather has turned and I couldn’t get good pictures, I will try again tomorrow! I figured that I would share my wish list instead, I am actually really excited about some new releases and need them in my beauty room 🙂 Melt Cosmetics is releasing a new stack (actually, it came out today and I missed the launch. Oops.) and I am so stoked about this one! They actually released several new…

    Some July Empties!

    This post should really just be where we address my obsession with face sprays. I cannot believe that I have enough beauty trash to do a full post but also – when did I find the time to use all of these sprays?! Two of them are travel sizes but still seems like a lot, I use face spray every day and multiple times a day so I guess it shouldn’t come as any surprise. Let’s get to the empties!! I grew to enjoy this Ready, Set Radiant Skin Mist but only as skin care, the sprayer is good for about the first dozen uses and then it gets really…

    Fragrance Wishlist

    I ordered one thing from Victoria’s Secret about 10 years ago – it was a swimsuit bottom and I have remained on their mailing list for some reason. I like to look at things occasionally but haven’t purchased anything since the swimsuit. I get this email today, and decided to look at some of their new items – one new item was a Choker Bralette. Wait, what? On what occasion could I possibly wear a choker/bralette – is this lingerie or an accessory?How do you get it on? I just have so many questions, if anyone owns one – I just want to talk… I don’t have a product of the week…

    Back to School With Kate Spade

    Disclaimer – I am not going back to school and nor did I ever have Kate Spade school supplies 🙂 School supplies are still some of my favourite things to shop for, I don’t have friends yet who have school age kids but will be borrowing some when I do! I was in need of some new pens and pencils for work though! I got these cute items from Barnes and Noble, I have also found some things from this brand on Amazon but am unsure of what other retailers sell her products. I don’t go in for Kate Spade handbags but I love her chic office supplies, the details are…

    Decor Inspo – Vintage Kitchen

    I had so much fun posting my collection of velvet couches that I thought I’d share my vintage kitchen wants 😊 My kitchen is already red, gingham and quirky, I love farmhouse style kitchens, bright colours, mod decor. My kitchen is probably the favourite room in the apartment, just a tad small. I can’t wait to have a bigger kitchen and actual dining room some day. Although, I’d compromise on the dining room – a breakfast bar and stools suits our needs, really. I’d love a kitchen as bright and sunny as any of these.  All of these images came from my Pinterest board and do not belong to me.…

    Product of the Week – boscia

    First off – my featured image has nothing to do with anything, which makes it perfect. I stopped for gas station coffee this morning, like I do on some mornings. It is one of those gas stations that has like 500 doughnuts, this morning there was a mom and a 4’ish year old kid picking one out. The mom kept yelling at the kid, Which one do you want, which one do you want. I don’t have any kids and know next to nothing about parenting but – really? As kids, we never ordered for ourselves or picked things out at the store. Why? Because kids are morons, we never…

    Currently Coveting – Makeup Forever

    Who needs more blusher? Not this girl. Who is probably going to purchase more anyway? *le sigh* I have never looked twice at the Makeup Forever brand aside from their stick foundation that is totally legit. I also find myself in a bit of a Makeup Malaise – new releases have not been wow’ing me (TooFaced White Chocolate Bar Palette) but I am over the moon about the Artist Face Color Highlight, Sculpt and Blush Powder. Not only does this line of powders come in so many amazing shades (and 2 finishes), some that I definitely do not own – you can customize your own 2 or 3 pan palettes – what?! You can…
