Makeup and candy are two of my favorite things. I really think that my love of Halloween blossomed when I learned that the whole point of the day was free candy, and the love of creepy things came way later. I also love Asian beauty companies, like Etude House. Not only do most brands use…

Wow, it’s been a long ass time since I wrote an empties post. It’s something I did once and didn’t feel the need to do again, but since my goal for the year is to use up a whole lot of stuff, I think we should check out some of my trash. Note: this is…

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…

While I was reading posts from some of my favorite blogs, I came across this tag on LifeMakeupStyle. It’s been a super long time since I did a tag post so I was excited to do this. 1. What is the one product you could not go without? Mascara, preferably waterproof because my eyes are…

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…

A couple weeks ago I received an email from Beautylish about a new release from Sulwhasoo. I was vaguely aware of the brand; I know it’s a Korean prestige brand that has skincare and some makeup. It’a really bougie and totally out of my price range for skin care, so I’ve never really paid attention…

‘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?
