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…

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…

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,…

Hello, my dear internet friends. Did you miss me? I’ve been home from my vacation for a few days and attempting, mostly in vain, to get back into the swing of real life. I worked, sort of successfully. I’ve been trying to get my house in order, completely unsuccessfully. Really the only thing I’ve been…

Like I mentioned last night, I’m in Florida. My best friend/wife for life is getting married this weekend, and I’m here to help her do tasks and not panic. I arrived Monday afternoon and so far, so good. If you’re interested in seeing random photos from my travels with mildly entertaining captions, follow me on…

I’ve been off of work for a few days for an impromptu little sickness staycation, and though I had the best intentions, meaning I’d do some reading and some writing and be totally set for the upcoming week and my trip to Florida, none of those things happened. Instead, I watched tv. I don’t discuss…

So it’s the end of my first month attempting to be smart. I’d like to discuss how I did. Time I started strong with the time management stuff. Toward the beginning of the month, I was getting up on time, having breakfast, spending time with Dan and still starting work on time. Woo! However… The last…

Are you one of the 8.5 million people who’ve watched this video in the past couple of days? If you’ve been here for any length of time you’ll know that I have some *thoughts* about this commercial and the response to it. Hi, rabid intersectional feminist, right here. First and foremost: I don’t love that Gillette…

‘Tis the season for making resolutions. For me, sticking to resolutions has almost always been impossible. They’re unattainable goals, like “This year I’m going to get my life together.” What does that even mean? Inevitably I get overwhelmed or discouraged with these huge, lofty goals and two weeks into the year I just give up…

Back in October Rimmel announced that they’d be partnering with The Cybersmile Foundation in a campaign to combat beauty cyberbullying, employing the hashtag #IWILLNOTBEDELETED. Unfortunately, this announcement was overshadowed by one of Rimmel’s sister brands, CoverGirl, announcing that they’re now certified as cruelty-free. The news has been on my radar for a while but because I’m a…
