    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…

    Riley Rose Want List

    Do you ever put off doing something for an irrationally long time because you are convinced that it will be the most terrible thing you have experienced to date but when you finally take care of said thing it took about 10 minutes and wasn’t that bad. You convince yourself that next time you will just suck it up and do it full-well knowing that this has been your pattern of behavior for the last 10 years and will be until the day you die. Same. I just found out that Riley Rose is opening a location in a suburb near me and I am super excited. This beauty store…

    Spring Beauty I’m Excited About

    According to the BF there are two types of people when it comes to the film The Usual Suspects – those who think it’s alright and those who love it. I told him that it was the best fucking movie ever made so apparently I fall into the latter group 😛 I’m sorry, that last half hour as the detectives realize that Kint’s story was all bullshit that he was making up on the fly while he is strolling away – I could watch it 100 times and still be mesmerized. Spacey turning out to be a predatory sleazebag definitely tainted the movie a bit for me, the script and…

    Oprah’s Favorite Things 2017

    Oprah’s Favourite Things List is here and I am so excited! I think that Oprah is the personification of class, it is fascinating to window shop all of the neat gifts that she recommends. I don’t know when she started doing these lists but I have purchased something off each one for a few years now. It has become a lot easier with Amazon stocking all of the items (they just dropped their toy list too). She does a decent job of listing something for each price range but lots of the items are luxury, I don’t need a $105 Adam Lippes cotton top – I will stick with my 5 buck Old…
