As I've mentioned once or twice, I live in upstate New York. We've had sort of an odd summer; it was very rainy and not as hot as normal, but since Labor Day the weather has been gorgeous. Sunny, hot, perfect summer weather. I think someone switched on fall because today it's gray, gloomy and... Continue Reading →
Road trip! I'm heading a few hundred miles Southeast for a work trip, and every time I drive through upstate New York I'm amazed by how beautiful it is, especially in the early fall when the leaves are just starting to change. Only a few more hours...
I'm really into K-beauty. Completely, unapologetically obsessed with K-beauty. Completely, unapologetically obsessed with K-beauty. Most of my life has been a struggle to keep oil and acne at bay. My skin has never been terrible, but I've been cursed with jaw and hairline breakouts for as long as I can remember. It looks unsightly and... Continue Reading →
I'm excited about this improvement guys. In the menu at the top of the page, you'll notice that there's a new option, 'Resources'. Under 'Resources' you'll see two additional options, 'YouTube channels' and 'Shopping'. These are pretty self-explanatory I think; the YouTube page lists all of my favorite YouTube channels about all kinds of subjects,... Continue Reading →
I remember this brand from the early 90s, and it was always so cheesy. It reminded me of the little kid play makeup my sister used to slather all over her face on the school bus when she was in first grade. The colors and quality were both terrible, and the only reason anyone I... Continue Reading →
Thanks to a generous donation from a friend (my first investor!), I was able to make some upgrades to the site. I hope you enjoy them, and please note the new URL! I'm so excited to have my own little corner of the internet to share my obsession with you! The new layout is coming... Continue Reading →
I didn't get much sleep last night. I was working late, then the boyfriend and I binged some 30 Rock and headed to bed. Where I lay awake. For hours. This is unusual for me, as I typically climb in bed, read for a half hour or so and then pass out the minute my... Continue Reading →
Thanks to ThaTaylaa, I've discovered a site that sells makeup, sheet masks and accessories for $1 each. For real. She made a video showing a bunch of stuff she purchased and doing a first impression, which inspired me to place a whopping $12 order. When the stuff arrives I'll show off my haul and let you...

I've discovered an awesome new (to me... I don't know how long it's been around) site for K-beauty: Peach & Lily. Use this code for $10 off.
I really think we're all a little gross, but it's not something we talk about very often. If you're the kind of gross that involves watching lots of Dr. Pimple Popper videos* and being simultaneously horrified and amazed by the human body, you'll enjoy this thing I got from Amazon. It's an extraction set. It... Continue Reading →
Can we all agree that Bath and Body Works candles are the greatest? Ok, good. Now that we've established that, all of their 3-wick candles are $10 off RIGHT NOW, and using code FALLFRESH gets you $10 off a $30 order. That's basically a free candle. You're welcome.
I'm not gonna lie... I looooved my BeautyBlender. Fucking. Loved. It. I received it in a subscription box and used it for a few months and once I got the hang of it (because the idea of using a sponge was odd to me), I was over the moon. My makeup had never looked better... Continue Reading →
It's been a busy few days filled with illness, sleeping and family obligations. I was also house/pet sitting for my parents while they were off on another empty nester adventure. Animals are quite a time suck, especially when you're sick. So, to all my adoring fans (really just my friend Brian), I promise to make... Continue Reading →
On my way home from running some errands last night I stopped into my local Sally Beauty Supply. I've loved this store since I was in high school (because who didn't get their nail polish from Sally back in the day), but I haven't been in to check out their makeup selection in a while....

If you're a fan of The Body Shop, another of their Buy 3 Get 3 Free sales starts today. There are some exclusions, because aren't there always, but it's still a great deal if you like Body Shop products. I personally really like their seaweed line. It's good for oily skin, and I think the... Continue Reading →
