    What I Got (Myself) for My Birthday

    I have no desire to get out of bed today, so apologies that all of these photos were taken from my bed 😛 It’s amazing, it only took 25 minutes to have four teeth removed but the pain has lasted like 30 hours. I feel like there should be some correlation between the length of the procedure and recovery but that’s apparently too much to ask. Also, I haven’t had any caffeine in three days and it’s misery. However, I did not come onto my dentist under sedation so overall, I think it went pretty well. For today’s post, I am sharing my birthday haul, I hope that you enjoy!…

    The Beauty Fridge Arrived!

    So, I was reading this article today about a case of child abuse in Minneapolis and I’m like – how hard is it to not abuse kids? Or animals for that matter, don’t have kids, don’t get a pet – it’s not like we are just issued these things and obligated to take care of them. It’s optional and it drives me nuts that people are so incredibly dumb. It just surprises me that people have to pass a test to become a US citizen but anyone can have kids or get a pet – there should be some kinda’ test to weed out the idiots. Especially in a case…

    Blogmas Day 22: Best of December

    Apparently, my gift to myself this year was getting sick. I feel like I don’t appreciate the small things in life like being able to breathe through two nostrils and not staying up all night coughing enough until I’m sick. It’s odd that I know that as soon as this passes, I’ll forget all about the misery and go back to taking for granted my two working nostrils. I was actually better today than I was two days ago so hopefully back to normal before Christmas. I kept noticing a weird phenomenon at work today, primarily women telling their kids or whoever they were shopping with to not tell their…

    Blogmas Day 14: Garnet Eyes

    People, the stars finally aligned and I was on Instagram just as Pixi Beauty posted that their giant Glow-Tonic would be available and I finally snagged one! I’ve literally never managed to purchase one of these coveted jumbo-bottles and I am so excited. It gets better even because it’s the holiday edition, I’m so pumped but that has nothing to do with today’s post 😛 I picked up a couple of the Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows that I thought were good for the holidays. I have to say that these and the glitter shadows are kinda’ hit or miss with the quality. Some shades are super vibrant and…

    We Get It – You Smoke Pot: A Rant

    Magic Dragon. Bambalachi. Yellow Submarine. Black Bart. Dr. Giggles. Kentucky Blue. You know what I’m talking about. I’m talking about Railroad Weed. That’s right. The Devil’s Parsley. Skunk. Splim. Splam. Mooster. Side Salad – Detective Monk on weed 😀 This is a rant because I have a lot of opinions and feel the need to share them. I’ve had it with Melt Cosmetics and their obnoxious glamorization of smoking reefer. There, I said it. I purchased most of the Hot Box collection that came out a while ago but they’ve lost their damn minds with the release of Smoke Session. The promotional ad that was put out a few days…

    Holiday Palette Recommendation: Friendcation

    Can we talk about how clean my kitchen is? I mean, my apartment is usually pretty clean because there really isn’t an excuse for it not to be but I deep cleaned the kitchen today and it feels amazing. I think one of the things that I am most thankful for everyday is the life that I have been able to build for myself. It hits me when I am sitting alone in my living space, just taking in how truly lucky I am. I’ve talked about my childhood on here before, it was a mess, we had nothing and it just feels good to feel safe and secure in…

    Blogtober Day: XXVII – Best of October

    I am listening to the second Kathy Reichs/Dr. Brennan book and talk about a long slog of a book read by a mediocre narrator. I imagine that this is what I would sound like narrating a book, like a high-pitched Daria with unexpected accents thrown in for creative flare – the worst. I don’t think that you necessarily have to listen to all of the books in order to keep up with the story and I am about skip out on the 6 remaining hours of this one. I hate to be a quitter though. This post might be a bit long, I really dug into my everyday makeup bag…

    Blogtober Day: XXI – Halloween Makeup

    Last night was our big Halloween festival, this is the first year that I got to work it and it was a blast. I was just going to chuck on a witch hat and call it a costume  but then I was like, who am I?! I also had a party to go to afterward that I did want to be dressed up for so I decided to wear the same look to both. Remember how I was all worried about scaring kids? Yea, there were kids there dressed up in some terrifying shit. Halloween has changed a bit since I was youngin. Next year, I am going full-on body…

    Blogtober Day: XVII – Dear Vegans, This is Why Nobody Likes You

    I’m exaggerating (a tad) I have many a vegan friend and I do believe that the more people shifting to a plant-based diet then the better off the environment will be in the long run. However, I read this article and it pissed me off because it’s an example of what I like to call Extreme Veganism and as with any extremist group, it’s detrimental to the cause. Vegan, by definition is someone who does not consume or use anything derived from animals or their by products. If that definition is to be expanded to not consuming,using or doing anything that has an impact on an animal in any kind…

    Blogtober Day: XVI – Repurchase Worthy

    Laying in bed last night, I realized that I just want to be skinny and have great skin 😉 No but seriously, I am getting back into juicing starting today. I know, I know – juice is chalk full of carbs and sugar but it gives you great energy and beautiful skin. I stopped juicing because it takes a lot of work, cleaning a juicer is a giant pain in the ass and it makes my apartment smell like a fresh mowed lawn but it’s worth it. Also, I am giving one of those food boxes a whirl to see what the fuss is about. I eat pretty healthy if…
