    It’s Almost My Birthday, I Can Cry if I Want To…

    What is that song even about? I only know the chorus but isn’t it about some gal whose boyfriend ditches her at her own birthday party and his name is like Jonny? Jonny?! Who goes by Jonny past the age of like 6, sounds like a dud anyway – probably a blessing in disguise that he dumped her. I have to listen to the song now. If you’re new here, my birthday is my day to celebrate me and treat myself – as it should be for everyone and I hope that you get to do so. I don’t ask for gifts, ever and prefer to just purchase what I…

    Blogmas Day 19: My Out of Control Amazon Wishlist

    I have an Amazon shopping addiction, I don’t love that I have this because I do feel like the convenience of online shopping has impacted the profitability of brick and mortar stores. The thing that I do like about Amazon is that instead of purchasing from 3-4 different sellers at a time, generating 3-4 packages, putting additional delivery trucks on the road – I can order several items that all come together in one order. Still, I have tried to curb my purchases from them but have still been adding items to my wishlist and it’s gotten a bit out of hand! I kind of have various categories; items that…

    Blogmas Day 12: My Toy Wish List

    Confession, I love toys. If I’m feeling stressed or overwhelmed about life, I will literally browse the toy section of Target or Wal-Mart on Saturday at like 7 AM or the American Doll store at MOA is pretty legit too. I still feel personally attacked by the closure of Toys ‘R Us and a life goal of mine is to visit FAO Schwarz. I have fond memories of receiving the holiday catalog from FAO Schwarz each year from my grandparents who were estranged from my mother but let us pick a toy each year. We would spend hours picking out the exact perfect gift, it was bliss. I’ve been checking…

    Holiday’ish Wishlist

    I have already said that I am not huge into Thanksgiving, I don’t get it, I don’t like pumpkin pie (or squash pie since that canned pie filling has like .00001% actual pumpkin), I’m skeptical of the whole story behind Thanksgiving – I Just have a lot of issues with the holiday. I think that this year I am just doing a ton of appetizers since I don’t eat turkey and the alternatives are pretty loathsome. Like, tofurkey? I mean, who thought of that? More like to-fuckery, I can’t do it. So, I’m looking through all of these appetizer recipes and like 90% of them are labeled; World’s Best, The…

    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…

    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…

    Top Ten Tuesday – VIB Wishlist

    I was going to share my Michael’s Halloween Haul but first I was like; slow your roll – it’s too early and second, I purchased a few things from their vintage collection and I have to say – it’s all kinda’ terrifying. I have said this before, Halloween was infinitely scarier 50 years ago. The jack-o-lanterns look like human heads! Anyway, I was not prepared for all that and we’ll do a Sephora wishlist instead but not just any wishlist, the VIB Sale wishlist! In all honesty, I am not super pumped for this sale or new makeup in general so this will mostly be a list of skincare/haircare that I…

    Summer Wishlist

    I feel like I am in a shopping mood but when I attempted to do some shopping this weekend, I only came home with two pairs of pants! I have been binge-watching CSI Las Vegas almost every night, nothing makes you feel better about your personal struggles than watching grotesque homicide investigations. I am going to the mega mall this weekend though and have some idea of where I am going and what I am getting. So, this isn’t as much of a wishlist as it is a shopping list but we will see how inspired I will be once I arrive at my destinations 😀 First stop is IKEA…

    Spring Candles

    Watching this documentary on cave art and was thinking how it would have been pretty cool to have been prehistoric man. But then, also got to thinking that it was probably pretty stressful too – most every animal on the planet that you’d be coexisting with was enormous and dangerous. Mastodons, giant beavers, saber tooth tigers, titanoboa and probably a lot of species that weren’t quite done yet which would have been terrifying. Imagine just strolling along and running into one of these: That’s clearly like 4 different animals all of which could kill you. I ventured into Bath & Body Works today which was a mistake since it was…

    Sephora VIB Spring Sale Wishlist!

    Do you ever read a book that is so freaking good that you have to start it all over? I just finished The Legacy by Yrsa Sigurdardottir and it was amazing. I tend to really like her books but this one is definitely a new fave. It’s not for the squeamish, there are some pretty gritty scenes and intense themes but it was fantastic. I hope that this is just a taste of the Nordic thrillers that are releasing this month. While I have not received my paper coupon (do they still send those), the VIB Rouge sale starts April 13th and since I am making a conscientious effort to…
