What am I reading? Lady Killers: Deadly Women Throughout History by Tori Telfer

I feel like we're all friends now so I can tell you things without you thinking that I'm a danger to those around me. I love serial killers. Not like I admire them or want to be them, but I find them fascinating. How do they commit such grisly crimes? What happened to them that removed... Continue Reading →

Makeup myths you should stop believing

Last week I posted about makeup 'rules' for women over 40. I had much disdain for the article and the person who wrote it. This week I stumbled across this gem, also from Reader's Digest, and I thought we should talk about it. Myth #1: Concealer should be lighter than your skin tone. Supposedly using...

Another Sunshine Blogger Award!

This is going to sound really bad, but I love winning awards. Partly because I like the accolades and partly because I like seeing the questions other bloggers ask. The Rules The guidelines for this award are straightforward. Thank the blogger(s) that nominated you in the post and link back to their blog Answer the... Continue Reading →

Hey blogger friends, read this!

Hello lovely bloggers! I'd like to start having the occasional guest post on my blog, and since you're all wonderful, intelligent, eloquent people, I thought I'd ask you first. I'm looking for beauty, books, paranormal, travel... basically the same kinds of topics you see on my blog already. Maybe we can trade posts? If you're... Continue Reading →

Let’s chat about something I suck at

Happy Saturday internet friends! I hope you're all having a good weekend so far. Today I'm coming to you from rural northern Michigan, in a tiny cottage surrounded by other vacation rentals and forest. We did nothing today, and it was glorious. Having some free time today got me thinking about my faults as a... 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 →

Shop Hush

A few weeks ago when I talked about the Tarte April Fools palette I mentioned that I had placed an order on Hush's website, and I want to tell you about my experience. I've placed two orders from this site at this point and I haven't been disappointed. Both orders shipped either the same day... Continue Reading →

Makeup ‘rules’

I'm not much for rules. Sure, I adhere to the important ones, like don't commit murder, but most rules with regard to makeup are completely arbitrary and I ignore them. Anyway, I was watching some beauty influencer (I really don't remember who) and she referenced a story from Business Insider about the makeup rules everyone... Continue Reading →

Subscription review: Scentbird

I'm not a person who wears perfume. I have body splashes and light fragrances I've gotten as gifts, but I don't buy "real" perfume. It's so damn expensive, and I've never been able to get through an entire perfume before it went bad so it's not worth spending $100+. This isn't to say that I... Continue Reading →

A day in Erie, PA

You know how we all have running group chats with friends, family, coworkers, whatever? One of mine is titled My Gangsters and consists of myself, Becky, Jason, Shauna, and Alisha. Last summer Alisha moved from our home in Western NY to Erie, PA. Yesterday was her birthday, and when Becky found out that she didn't have... 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 →
