It’s about that time folks.  This year has been… well, interesting covers it I guess. It’s a year I needed to live through to grow and junk. This blog has been a big part of that growth; it’s reminded me that I’m actually a creative person and I have things to say. That’s important to…

I haven’t read as much as I would have liked this year and fell short of my Goodreads goal by… well, a lot. I’ve just had a ton of stuff going on, but I’ve still managed to read some great stuff. Also, if you’d like to be my friend on Goodreads, feel free to send…

I watch a lot of YouTube. Like, A LOT. At this point, I watch YouTube almost exclusively when Dan is working and we’re not watching a show together. So I have a lot of favorite channels, and they’re not all beauty related so get ready. Beauty News Two Aussies, Hailey (the blonde) and Kat (the…

I’m not normally the New Year’s Resolutions type, but I feel like I really need to get my act together when it comes to my beauty collection. It’s getting ridiculous. Wear makeup every day – I’m not currently doing this, which is insane because I have so much. With any luck, wearing makeup every day…

I got a nice little surprise today; both my Sephora Play box and my first FabFitFun box arrived! My last few Play boxes have been really nothing special so I’m hoping for something good, and the FFF box is supposed to be epic, so here we go. My first thought when opening the Play box…

Guys. It’s day 21. WOOT. I like Christmas music. It’s not my favorite thing ever, and I can’t listen to it 24/7, even during the holiday season, but it’s not something I loathe. My taste is Christmas music is a little weird, so I decided to share some of my favorite songs with you. So…

This post could also aptly be titled “WTF is happening with my skin right now”. Typically there’s a bit of a freakout when the season changes so I was expecting a little of this, but my face is full scale freaking out. Zits, dryness, the whole nine. In my attempts to keep the freakout at…

So this post is going to go off on a tangent for a minute. Stay with me. I don’t like a lot of sentimental crap. I’m not into rom-coms really, and I don’t like romance novels. I don’t know why I’m not into this stuff, but it actually annoys me. I find myself being like…

Blogmas day 16 seems like a good day to talk about all of the holiday things I won’t be buying. There’s a lot of stuff that comes out at Christmas, and normally I’m really excited about it all. This year has proven to be an exception, as I have little interest in any of it,…

Dear Santa, I know it’s been a few years since I’ve written, but hear me out: I grew up and somehow let the world convince me that you don’t exist. Silly, right? It’s a thing that happens to the best of us though. Now that I’m in my mid-30s I like to think I have…

For Blogmas day 12 I bring you a short(ish) photo diary of the second annual Leonidas. Now, Leonidas is not a “real” holiday. Last year one of my friends had a small kitchen accident that resulted in a bit of skin at the top of her finger being cut off. Somehow we saw a Spartan…
