Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty – week 1

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Spooky season and Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty! I love these sales because I can stock up on favorite things and try new things and not pay full price. I already give too much of my money to Ulta. I'm a day late due to traveling and family... Continue Reading →

MOTD: can’t wait for bed edition

This morning I woke up ridiculously early (for me), took a shower and put on real pants (meaning not sweats or pajamas). All so that I could have breakfast with some friends who were in town unexpectedly and not smell bad doing it. It was nice, but I don't like being conscious before 8. Admittedly,...

MOTD: easily distracted edition

I've mentioned this once or twice, but I work from home. Sometimes it's really boring and impossible to concentrate. Today is one of those days, so I played with some makeup. What's on my face: Eye primer: MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly Eye shadow: Anastasia Beverly Hills x Jackie Aina palette - a... Continue Reading →

How you doin’?

Hello internet friends! I'm fried. Between work and other life nonsense, I'm feeling pretty burned out. It's actually mostly because of work. I've been unhappy in my job for a while, and the powers that be have implemented some changes to mitigate our misery, but ultimately, I work in customer support. Support reps everywhere are...

Summer anti-haul

It's been a long time since I posted an anti-haul, and since there's a ton of stuff that's either just been released or coming soon, I thought now would be a perfect time. So without further ado, here's some stuff I won't be buying. Besame Cosmetics Sleeping Beauty collection I'm an unequivocal lover of Disney... Continue Reading →

Battle of the bug sprays

Remember a few weeks ago, when I ran off to the middle of the woods for America's birthday? The area we visited is in the northern Adirondack mountains, within spitting distance of the Canadian wilderness. Our family friend has what's referred to as a "camp"; a small house with a couple of outbuildings plopped in... Continue Reading →

5 days

I got an email a little over an hour ago. Cue freakout. Navigating to the Haus Laboratories site shows a countdown clock and the same image of Lady Gaga as the one in the email. Click her gorgeous face, and you'll be watching a promotional video in which people of various races and genders dance... Continue Reading →

Review: Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation

I've been acquiring an almost troubling number of foundations recently. Not intentionally of course, but companies just keep releasing things I'm interested in. I'm still searching for that holy grail, ride or die product, so when there are new releases that catch my eye, I can't help thinking, "This could be the one." Of course,... Continue Reading →

Change of plans

I intended to post a review of the new Maybelline foundation tonight. I even have wear test photos. I was so excited that I was getting it together for this month. Then I looked at the clock. Work ran later than I planned, and I have a four-hour journey into the wilderness tomorrow, and many... Continue Reading →

There and back again

We just got back to Albany after spending the weekend in Rochester. We went to our oldest niece's high school graduation and had lots of family time. It was lovely. I tried some new stuff while I was gone. Reviews are imminent. And tomorrow is July 1st. I don't know where the time is disappearing... Continue Reading →

Products I regret buying

I haven't mentioned my "smart buy" in a while, but this year I've tried really hard to be more particular about the things I purchase. It hasn't always worked. I'm not immune to hype; I am a human who loves beauty products, after all. Unfortunately for me, a lot of the things I've purchased because... Continue Reading →
