I'm feeling a bit more like myself today, so let's talk about this random beauty subscription. I liked it when I received it at the end of August, so I kept the subscription. I'm not as crazy about it this month. MAC Lustre Lipstick in Lustering Confession time: I've never owned a MAC lipstick. Or... Continue Reading →
Let’s talk about: self-care
I'm sure you noticed that I was having kind of a rough day yesterday. I was having all of the feelings, not least among them was impotent rage, and today hasn't been much better. Luckily I only needed to work for about four hours, so I spent the rest of my day trying to take... Continue Reading →
Storytime: sexual assault is a big fucking deal
This wasn't the post I had planned for today, but... it's been a day, and I'm having some feelings. I don't generally talk about politics here. I think I've alluded to my affiliations, but ultimately that doesn't matter today. What does matter is that there's a man in the midst of confirmation proceedings for a... Continue Reading →
Get excited you creepy f%@*ers! There’s new makeup coming
As Halloween approaches, it's time to put my creepiness on display. I know that I complained about fall yesterday, but I'm really not that mad about it. This is the time of year when my love of scary things goes from off-puttingly odd to charmingly enthusiastic. From now until Halloween I'm on trend, yo. Anyway.... Continue Reading →
Am I the only one who’s already tired of hearing about fall?
You all know that I watch a lot of YouTube. Like, A LOT. Especially when Dan isn’t here, and he’s in Philadelphia this week for work so it’s all YouTube, all the time. Primarily beauty “gurus”. I find them entertaining and many of them review things I’m into.Except for right now. Holy. Shit. Why in... Continue Reading →
MOTD: family event edition
Dan and I are home in Rochester this weekend spending time with family. Today was our baby niece's first birthday party, so I had to look cute. What's on my face: Primer - First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer Foundation - CoverGirl TruBlend Matte Made Foundation in M10 Golden Natural Concealer...

MOTD: Procrastination edition
I don't wanna work, I just wanna sleep in my bed all day... I know that's not how the song goes, but that's what's in my heart so I'm going to sing it that way. Because today is the Mondayest of Tuesdays and I had a bunch of dumb meetings that required being on camera,... Continue Reading →
What am I reading? The Mere Wife by Maria Dahvana Headley
Man, I love talking/writing about books. This was a particularly interesting read and I'm excited to tell you about it. I wandered by it on the New Releases shelf the last time I was at the library (because yes, I go to the library) and was immediately intrigued. Unlike my classmates, I enjoyed reading Beowulf...

What am I reading? Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh
Why yes, I am reading more YA fantasy. With all of the things happening in my life recently, like moving across the state, massive changes in my job, and just generally trying to keep my head above water, I've been taking more time than usual to chill out and just read. I'm not reading anything... Continue Reading →
Q & A: How do I find my foundation shade?
Hey, remember when I was going to do Q & A posts on the regular? Instead of discussing my many failings as a blogger and "influencer" (even typing that word makes me feel icky), let's focus on the issue at hand: finding the right shade of foundation. This is the makeup equivalent of rocket science,... Continue Reading →

Allure Beauty Box: August 2018
It's been a long time since I did any kind of unboxing here; it's not an unboxing blog, but when I get something new I like to share it. And for some unknown reason, this month I decided to sign up for the Allure Beauty Box. I don't read Allure. I haven't read "beauty" magazines... Continue Reading →

It takes a shocking amount of coffee (among other resources) to keep me, and subsequently this blog going, so if you like my... Continue Reading →
