So about this pandemic

Hi! I hope you're all safe and healthy. I'm not handling things all that well, to be honest. Remember when this whole thing started and I was totally cavalier about it? I was all like, "It's fine, use the time to learn a language, make coffee, remember to take showers"? Well, I was wrong. So.... Continue Reading →

Battle of the bug sprays

Remember a few weeks ago, when I ran off to the middle of the woods for America's birthday? The area we visited is in the northern Adirondack mountains, within spitting distance of the Canadian wilderness. Our family friend has what's referred to as a "camp"; a small house with a couple of outbuildings plopped in... Continue Reading →

Happy May!

I really intended to post something cheesy about how it's gonna be May, but then the beginning of May passed me by. I feel like the last few months have been in fast forward. There's been a lot going on in my life, personally and professionally, and my little passion project fell by the wayside... Continue Reading →

Something new is coming…

And no, I'm not talking about the Urban Decay collab with Game of Thrones. While I am basically chomping at the bit to get my hands on it, something more exciting (for me) is coming soon. I started a new project this weekend, and I hope you'll all like it. I'm trying to keep it... Continue Reading →

Makeup collection tag!

You all know that I spend too much time watching YouTube, and one of my favorite beauty YouTubers is Georgia Harris. She's cool as hell, and a little weird, and she likes Pokemon and beanies and I'm into it. She's not your typical cookie cutter influencer and that's a big part of her appeal. Anyway,...

Boys need skin care too

The other night Dan and I were hanging out with a friend of his, having beers and shooting the shit. I've only met this friend once before so he didn't know about my obsession with all things beauty related, but of course Dan had to brag/complain about it. As soon as the kid found out...

Another post about sunscreen…

Because it's really damned important. To be completely honest, I haven't always been the hardcore sunscreen proponent that I am now. I didn't start wearing sunscreen on my face regularly until I was in my early 30s, and somehow, miraculously, I've managed to escape having any noticeable sun damage on my face. I'm still not...

Makeup myths you should stop believing

Last week I posted about makeup 'rules' for women over 40. I had much disdain for the article and the person who wrote it. This week I stumbled across this gem, also from Reader's Digest, and I thought we should talk about it. Myth #1: Concealer should be lighter than your skin tone. Supposedly using...

Shop Hush

A few weeks ago when I talked about the Tarte April Fools palette I mentioned that I had placed an order on Hush's website, and I want to tell you about my experience. I've placed two orders from this site at this point and I haven't been disappointed. Both orders shipped either the same day... Continue Reading →
