    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…

    Blogtober Day: XV – Fall Eyeshadow

    I realized that I haven’t talked about much makeup as part of my Blogtober series but I have been purchasing new makeup (hello, Gemini palette that is arriving today) and figured I was overdue in talking about some fall makeup! I ordered the Study Buddy kit from ColourPop some time ago, it includes 6 of their Super Shock shadows in some very fall suitable shades. I love the Super Shock formula, the hybrid creme/powder formula is so vibrant, it wears beautifully and if you have crepe-y eyelids like yours truly, it definitely minimizes the appearance of those fine lines. I feel like I really had to work for these swatches,…

    Blogtober – Day IX: Holiday Wishlist

    Would an anti-haul post be complete without a follow up wishlist? I think not. Now, I am more than likely not purchasing any of this, I have been using the same makeup items for a couple of months now and I think this is a sign that I don’t need more makeup or I am bored of it. I keep thinking that one day my lust for makeup will be sated but this has not happened. If brands would slow their roll with all of these releases, that would be great. Two things here, this palette is pretty boring and I cannot work with the ABH eyeshadow formula so why…

    Blogtober – Day VIII: Holiday Anti-Haul

    So I’m sitting here, enjoying my coffee, trying to talk myself into purchasing a jar of La Mer cream. I received a deluxe sample with a purchase from Nordstrom randomly and I really enjoyed it. I had tried the Soft Creme at some point and didn’t like it all which makes me wonder if the original is where it’s at. I’ve been doing a ton of research to see if this magical cream is really worth the price tag and I came upon this article. And I’m like, what a bunch of pretentious bullshit. Is this why it costs so much – they had to hire a psychic to reformulate…

    Best of September, Halloween Decor & 31 Nights of Horror!

    You guys, flu season just started, actually I don’t even know if it that’s true but I’ve already contracted strep and now I have the flu within the scope of a month. I’m so pissed, I tend to make it through flu season unscathed, this better not be a prelude for the rest of the year. I have missed two days of blogging due to feeling like death so am just throwing a bunch of stuff into this post that I had planned for the last couple of days of September. I only have a few items that I would consider Best Of’s for this month and very few empties…

    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…

    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…

    Fall Anti-Haul

    So, I put my Halloween decor up and some people might think that it’s too soon, I can respect that. A 3-month Halloween celebration might not be for everyone, no I take it all down on November 1. Or do I? I mean, you’d really never know, that shit could be up all year. Anyway, what I can’t respect and made me lose my shit while scrolling through social media is that brands are already releasing or at least issuing 2018 advent calendars. Are you kidding me!? Then I realized that it’s just about that time of year when brands start releasing all of their holiday collections and I figured…

    Monday Must Have – KKW Beauty

    Have you ever just been walking along, mostly minding your own business, thinking about the delicious things you are planning to eat for dinner when you full-on eat shit? Legit me leaving the craft store today. No ice, it had been raining so maybe my sandal was slick but still – talk about lame, falling down for no reason. Then, the person who you are with says, I think you should get screened for MS. Yes, THANK YOU for being so helpful. In their defense, they were with me the last time I fell down but it was on ice so I had good reason. I found some new additions to my…

    August Trash Talk

    Before we get into the beauty trash – is anyone using the Gutenberg Editor and liking it?  I don’t get it, the blocks don’t make sense to me and I just feel like I have to do a lot of clicking to insert content and the spacing comes out wonky – I just don’t like it. I’m generally pretty accepting of updates and new apps but this one has been a struggle and I went back to the Classic Editor. Am I just getting old? Is this the first sign that I am no longer able to learn new technology?! Technology-schmechnology. We are literally inundated with more technology than we…
