And no, I'm not talking about the Urban Decay collab with Game of Thrones. While I am basically chomping at the bit to get my hands on it, something more exciting (for me) is coming soon. I started a new project this weekend, and I hope you'll all like it. I'm trying to keep it... Continue Reading →
I'm sure you all remember April Fool's Day last year when Tarte announced their most interesting palette ever, the Icy Betch palette. It was gorgeous, with icy blues and cool greens, and I loved it. But it was a fucking joke. *eye roll* So here we are, a year later, and Tarte has actually released... Continue Reading →
OOTD: Ask me about my feminist agenda
I took today off because I really needed some downtime. Also, my current landlord's realtor needed to be in my house with the new owners, so I figured why not venture out to my new favorite coffee shop. I was planning to get some ideas together for a new project I've been thinking about, but... Continue Reading →
MOTD: Work is lame edition
Occasionally I need to stop working for a while and listen to a book and put on makeup. Because work is lame and terrible. Today, it's all Lunatick Cosmetics Labs. Established in 2012, Lunatick is vegan, talc-free and cruelty-free, made in the US. Their aesthetic speaks to me - it's all creepy and ghoulish. Their... Continue Reading →
Makeup collection tag!
You all know that I spend too much time watching YouTube, and one of my favorite beauty YouTubers is Georgia Harris. She's cool as hell, and a little weird, and she likes Pokemon and beanies and I'm into it. She's not your typical cookie cutter influencer and that's a big part of her appeal. Anyway,...

Boys need skin care too
The other night Dan and I were hanging out with a friend of his, having beers and shooting the shit. I've only met this friend once before so he didn't know about my obsession with all things beauty related, but of course Dan had to brag/complain about it. As soon as the kid found out...

FaceTune: why do we need to be perfect instead of human?
Earlier this evening I finished work, and because I often lie to myself, I thought I'd idly watch some YouTube and research some stuff for blog posts and whatever. Usually, that means I'm going to zone out in front of the tv and do nothing productive, and tonight was no exception. The first video I... Continue Reading →
Kat Von D wants to set the record straight -9 months late
This week Kat Von D uploaded a video to her YouTube channel in which she addressed the assertions that she's not only anti-vax but also anti-semitic/pro-Nazi. This video comes nine months after the disastrous, much publicized and now deleted Instagram post in which she attempted to garner sympathy for how hard it is to be a... Continue Reading →
Is #sephorasquad a #scam?
I'm sure you've heard about #sephorasquad, but in case you've been living under a rock: #SephoraSquad is a different kind of beauty-influencer program. We celebrate the most authentic and inspiring voices in the digital beauty space. We value unique, unfiltered, sorry-not-sorry storytellers, no matter the number of followers they have. That’s why the program offers... Continue Reading →
Instagram is down…OH THE HUMANITY
At this point, I'm sure you all know that Facebook and Instagram have had MAJOR issues all day long. I saw some post this morning claiming that Facebook was down for "scheduled maintenance", but in the tech world that actually means "oh shit guys, we fucked something sideways". So, who else feels like they lost... Continue Reading →
Look who made an effort today!
Just a quick post to check in and show off the fact that I made an effort today! I got up almost on time and actually did my hair! I only had enough time left over for a 5-minute makeup routine before I had to be in a meeting for work, but still. Hair AND... Continue Reading →
What am I reading? In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware
This book is complete bullshit, and I'm going to spoil the shit out of it. You've been warned. Synopsis: Nora hasn’t seen Clare for ten years. Not since the day Nora walked out of her old life and never looked back. Until, out of the blue, an invitation to Clare’s hen party arrives. A weekend in... Continue Reading →
I’m home. It’s cold.
Hello, my dear internet friends. Did you miss me? I've been home from my vacation for a few days and attempting, mostly in vain, to get back into the swing of real life. I worked, sort of successfully. I've been trying to get my house in order, completely unsuccessfully. Really the only thing I've been... Continue Reading →
