    Spring Releases Anti-Haul

    I took a couple of days off from blogging because I didn’t realize that having these teeth removed would be such a giant pain in the ass. When I got home after surgery, I was just kind of sitting there thinking, this is fine. But then I fell asleep and woke up and it wasn’t fine, I have one infected socket and one dry socket which is extremely painful. Which, they told me the day of the procedure that it would be but I guess I didn’t believe them because it’s not like they are doctors or anything. I haven’t had solid food in like a week and have been…

    Real Techniques Must Haves

    PSA – the entire Real Techniques brand is on BOGO at ULTA right now and not that buy one, get one 50% crap – literally buy one, get one free! I almost exclusively use Real Techniques brushes because they are affordable, effective and they wash really well. I love them so much that my back-ups have back-ups just in case. They are currently refreshing the original look which is awesome, same great brushes with a modern flare. Here are my absolute favorite brushes from the brand. Everyday Essentials: This kit includes 5 of their must-have complexion brushes and they’re all good. You get an Expert Face (salmon pink), Blush (big…

    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 ๐Ÿ˜› 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…

    Blogmas Day 10: KVD Lolita, Let’s Talk

    Is a requirement of Blogmas that the posts need to be festive? If so, I apologize in advance for this non-festive post but it’s something that has been on my mind and I have some opinions (shocking). For some years now, Kat Von D has had a couple of products in her line in the shade Lolita. It’s a chestnut rose shade that is supposed to be universally flattering and admittedly, it’s a very lovely shade. Today, she dropped an entire collection built around the OG Lolita and I have an issue with this. Lolita conjures an image of a young, beautiful, petite tejana with a mischievous smile and big…

    Blogmas Day 9: Patrick Starrr x MAC Holiday Collection

    I was ID’d at Culver’s this evening for like a $3 custard and I’m still offended. I mean, clearly, if I was going to steal a credit card the last place that I would use it at would be a Culver’s or I would roll through and order one of everything on the menu! I know that there’s a lot of identity theft that happens during the holidays but a custard?! It wasn’t even that good, anyway – for today’s blog I have a few bits from Patrick Starrr’s final collection with MAC Cosmetics. This time last year, he released his first collection and it makes me a little sad…

    Blogmas Day 8: Slay Ride

    I may or may not have been patiently sitting in my car sipping coffee waiting for ULTA to open so that I could snag the PatrickStarrr x MAC holiday collection. I’m glad I went the day of the release though because MAC did not send a lot of stock to the ULTA locations, they only had a couple of each item. I skipped on the lipsticks because my lips have been crusty AF but there are some lovely shades in this collection. I snagged a Lip Glass, Patty Powder and both of the palettes – we are doing holiday themed looks at work and here is what I came up…

    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 ๐Ÿ˜€ 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…

    Hey Kweeen!

    Kim & Kylie have officially dropped at ULTA, you can now purchase a variety of lips kits and fragrances in numerous stores. That’s all fine and well until I walked into work this morning and there were 45 pairs of Kim’s nipples staring me down. Have you seen these bottles?! I think that they are created in her likeness, I mean, Kim is known for being naked most of the time so this shouldn’t have been a surprise. I was still shocked though, I guess I didn’t know that they were so life like or maybe it was the fact that the display is smack in the middle of the…

    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…

    What I’m Watching

    I realized that I am jumping the gun a little with the holiday posts and decided to slow my roll ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m that jerk who claims that they could take or leave Christmas, until I get the tree out and… I just struggle with the concept of the holiday, the Christian celebration compared to the commercial Santa cultural celebration as some people refer to it as. I don’t get it, everyone wants to celebrate Christmas but skip the asses in pews part? I think over half of Americans celebrate a non-religious holiday, again, as a modern society we pick and choose what traditions we eschew but Christmas will have to…
