Origins haul: was it worth it?

I'm not going to lie to y'all - I've spent a lot of money during lockdown. I really didn't mean to, but I'm lucky enough to still be gainfully employed, and sometimes I can't resist a little retail therapy. Or a lot of retail therapy. One of my many hauls was from Origins, for reasons... Continue Reading →

Mini-reviews

Greetings internet! I just took some time to update my Amazon storefront with some new stuff, so if you want to see a ton of things I use in my everyday life, plus makeup I love and books I've read, all complete with mini-reviews, check it out. Full disclosure: should you buy something from my... Continue Reading →

Products I regret buying

I haven't mentioned my "smart buy" in a while, but this year I've tried really hard to be more particular about the things I purchase. It hasn't always worked. I'm not immune to hype; I am a human who loves beauty products, after all. Unfortunately for me, a lot of the things I've purchased because... Continue Reading →

Makeup and candy

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... Continue Reading →

January empties

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... Continue Reading →

Like winter, only better

Happy Sunday internet friends! I have a post scheduled for later tonight, but I wanted to pop in and tell you all... A giveaway is coming. I haven't done one in a very long time, and I'm finally ready to show you the things I've been accumulating for months. Stay tuned for details!

Birthday MOTD

So, it's my birthday. I'm 36 today. I feel old af while simultaneously feeling like I can't possibly be over 30. I'm not feeling too great and didn't have anything planned today, but I decided to put on makeup. Not a full face, but enough to make me feel more like a human. La Roche... Continue Reading →

Flesh: are you kidding me?

There's a new brand at Ulta: Flesh, the prestige brand from Revlon. Where do I even start? First, the name. Flesh. I'm not the kind of person who gets weird about certain words, but the name alone makes me think of Buffalo Bill. IT PUTS THE LOTION ON ITS SKIN! Ahem. The tagline for this... Continue Reading →

Happy Father’s Day!

Oddly, Father's Day is one of my favorite holidays. Every year my parents (meaning mom and stepdad) host a big barbecue and so many of my favorite people come to eat, drink and laugh. It's the best, and my stepdad, who is basically the greatest dad ever, is in his element. He can usually be... Continue Reading →

Beauty wish list

I've already done my spring/summer anti-haul, but since I have a birthday coming in a couple months I suppose I should also do a wish list. Some of this stuff is new and some has been out for awhile and I haven't been able to justify purchasing it. Tarte Be a Mermaid Eyeshadow Palette I... Continue Reading →

Review: Garnier SkinActive BB Cream

It's summer! Ok, not really... I live in the frigid northeast, and while it was a balmy 70 degrees F yesterday, today it's closer to 60 and raining. Anyway, it'll be summer eventually, and in the summer I wear less makeup. I don't like to wear full coverage foundation normally unless I'm going to an... Continue Reading →
