If you've been with me for a while, you know that I'm a little... odd. Not like "Stay away from my children" kind of odd, but the kind of odd that might make gift giving difficult. And I have a birthday coming. The title is a reference to my favorite creepy family matriarch; I've always... 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 →
Q & A: What’s the best kind of foundation?
I was planning to do Q & A posts more often, but, you know, life happens. This is another question I've been asked pretty frequently and like most simple questions about makeup, it's not actually simple. Short question, long answer. There are some factors we all need to consider when we're talking about the "best"... Continue Reading →
MLM companies and influencers
I've been thinking about this a lot lately. MLM stands for multi-level marketing. It's what used to be called a pyramid scheme since it's hard to make any real money unless you're at the top and the people under you are recruiting others, who recruit others, etc., on and on ad infinitum. Some examples of... Continue Reading →
Oh hey, another life update
So, I'm home. For the foreseeable future. That alone is revolutionary at this point. My Danny comes home in a couple days and I'm so, so excited. I was supposed to head out to Michigan to help him move but we ultimately decided that it wasn't necessary. We made the decision primarily for financial reasons, as... Continue Reading →
Things and stuff
Today I want to talk about something I've never mentioned before. Just kidding guys... I've talked about this approximately 20 times already. It's my brushes. And how I HATE washing them. It is a chore devised by Satan to test the sanity and patience of otherwise rational people. So I buy new ones. Which results... Continue Reading →
Where’s Teresa today?
Hello internet friends! At the moment I'm sitting in bed, in Colonie NY (outside of Albany), trying to work, blog, listen to podcasts about social media marketing and trying to organize my thoughts about the apartments I saw today. Also, I'm trying not to fall asleep. It's been a long day. I'm in Albany attempting... 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 →
YouTube vs. Maturity and Rational Thought
I don't normally feel the need to comment on YouTube drama, but sometimes I just can't help it. A few days ago, Jackie Aina posted a video claiming that an unnamed black, female drama YouTuber in another country had hacked her email and stolen $1500 from her. She made a whole bunch of claims in... Continue Reading →
Quick little first impression video
I don't know why I decided to make a video with dirty hair and a mask on my face, but here you go.
Ulta’s Foundation Quiz – where have you been all my life?
Ulta has a three-question foundation quiz that (supposedly) will give you the perfect product for your needs. The options are coverage, finish, and benefit (anti-aging, long wearing, etc.). You make your choices, and Ulta gives you options from various brands at different price points. Is this new? Did I miss when this was launched? WHY... Continue Reading →
The A to Z of me
I saw this post a few weeks ago on Jessica Jade Beauty and thought it was a fun idea. I've been working on it for a long time; it's way harder than I thought it would be. A - Animation I don't think I've ever mentioned this before, but I love cartoons. Disney and Dreamworks... Continue Reading →
What am I reading? Adulthood Is a Myth by Sarah Andersen
By now you've likely realized that I'm not a fan of adulting. I do adult things out of necessity, but I'd rather be coloring, or reading, or playing with cute animals. It's because of this lack of desire to adult that the title of this book appealed to me. Sarah Andersen is an artist. She... Continue Reading →
Lip fillers, teeth whitening and Botox, oh my!
I watch a lot of YouTube. At this point, I spend more time watching YouTube than regular tv shows or movies, and I primarily watch beauty channels. I also watch a lot of paranormal channels, but unless I'm visiting Dan I really can't watch those because I just get too scared. Anyway, I've been noticing... Continue Reading →
Ughhhhh Kat Von D
If you haven't been paying attention to Instagram/YouTube/the internet in general, you haven't seen this post from Kat Von D: I don't even know where to begin with this. I am completely in support of her choosing a midwife and doula and having the baby at home. Whether or not to use drugs is completely... Continue Reading →
