Trash to treasure: acrylic storage edition

I’m always a huge fan of reusing things when I can. The other day I was cleaning out my coffee cabinet and found an empty box of coffee straws. Not so much ‘found,’ I guess, since I knew it was there the whole time – but I realized it was something I can reuse. The coffee straws in question are Sip-Stir Straws from Soodhalter Plastics. The only ones I can find online are massively overpriced from Amazon, but I’m fairly sure I got mine at Kroger. I’ve also  ...

California Headphone Company Silverado: the headphones for petite noggins

This post is a little bit of a departure from the normal beauty-related content around here, but I feel like it really needs to be put out there. If you follow me on instagram, you might have noticed that music is another thing I love – live shows specifically, but I have to go to work sometimes.

I hope they will, because honestly I think the mirror is a little bit ugly, but it’s the  ...

Amelia Beauty showed off the new Charlotte Tilbury Rock n Kohl pencils, and how to use them to get bigger eyes. So tempted to pick some up now that CT ships to the use, but I know I already have too many liners. Another one  ...

Off Topic: Spent Grain Treats

Are you curious how this posts ties in with beauty? It doesn’t, that’s how! But I think it’s a little bit fun so I wanted to share it. We’ll return to our regularly-scheduled makeup posts soon, though! You see, my husband has a new hobby – brewing beer. I’m personally not a fan of it, but I’ve heard from unbiased taste-testers (also known as our friends) that it’s some pretty decent stuff. Of course the actual beer is the end goal, but you  ...
