Lunar New Year anti-haul

Happy Lunar New Year! Just kidding, it's not actually until February. But sometime in the last few years, it's become de rigueur for brands to release a bunch of stuff for Lunar New Year.

These have only recently started being sold at Ulta, and I love that I can pick up... Continue Reading →

Let’s check out my beauty trash!

I've seen this kind of video on YouTube about 1000 times and I think it's interesting; it's a chance to do mini-reviews of stuff I love that was purchased prior to starting this blog, and stuff I wouldn't purchase again. I'm not sure how it'll work in this format, but it's worth a shot. Here... Continue Reading →
