5 Things I Love Right Now

  Well, this week I was supposed to be up in Boston for work, but the workshop I was going to (and my flight) got cancelled due to the sky blizzarding all over everything. I had planned an afternoon of shopping at all the stores we don’t have around here, so I’m a little disappointed the rug got pulled out from under that. But on the other hand, we’re less than a week away from the first official day of spring and a month from now I’ll be eating croissants in  ...

The Dry Shampoo Edit

  A few weeks ago I talked a bit about my new IGK hair routine on instagram, and my friend @ohthewerewolf had some questions about the Jet Lag dry shampoo and how it compared to some others she’s using right now.

Something about the trend of bold-colored liquid lipsticks & enviable instagram pouts inspires a little bit of jealousy in me. I’m tempted to blame aging for my thin-ish lips, but looking back over old photos reminded me that I’m just not naturally endowed in that area. I’ve been  ...

Man, What Is It With Hourglass Eyeshadows?

  A quick peek into my makeup drawers would prove to you that I’ve been a big fan of Hourglass Cosmetics for a long time now, but seriously guys, what is up with the constant changes in eyeshadow formula & packaging? First we had the duos, which  were nice, but on the pricey side and discontinued almost before I even got my hands on any of them. Then came the Modernist palettes. I love mine, but I know a lot of people weren’t fans of the extremely soft texture or the  ...
