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 →

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 →

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 →

Accountability time!

Those Aussie ladies are my homegirls), but in the last 24 hours there have been some stories that I found interesting... Continue Reading →

Holiday anti-haul: drugstore edition

Am I too late in the Christmas season to talk about products I don't want? Yes? Oh well, you're getting another anti-haul anyway. I know that I talked about some inexpensive products in my Ulta anti-haul, but there's more drugstore stuff that's been released that I feel personally victimized by. Mostly because they're pointless, gimmicky... 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 →

An ode to my Clarisonic

I've figured out why my skin looked so janky while I was in Michigan: I didn't bring my Clarisonic. Normally I do bring it when I travel, but the cabin where Dan is living is TINY, and I tried to keep the amount of junk I brought to a minimum. I know he'll laugh if... Continue Reading →
