May of this year marked three years in our first house. If you took a look around before late last month though, you would think we just moved in. There weren’t boxes everywhere, but we really hadn’t settled in or made any permanent changes to the way it looked as an empty potential purchase. Over the last couple of years, I have created Pinterest boards galore for each and every room in the house, but it wasn’t until recently that I decided to actually get to work making the house feel like our own.Continue reading “Living Room Makeover”
Season two of The Mandalorian is in full swing, making my (and really, every other Star Wars fan’s) entire year. As a lover and collector of makeup I knew I had to get my hands on Colourpop’s The Child palette the moment they announced it. My husband rolls his eyes about it, but if a Star Wars makeup product is released I am obligated to buy it… this is the way. It was released initially late October, and as of right now it is sold out online, but it should be released in stores at some point this month for $16.Continue reading “The Child Palette Review”
I’ve been after these sunnies for over two years now. I can’t even recall where I first saw them, but I knew as soon as I did that I had to get a pair. While I know that sun protection is super important for your eyes, I’ve never really stuck with a pair of sunglasses because I wear prescription glasses and the styles I like aren’t available to put my prescription into. Designer sunglasses also have terrible resale value, so I’ve always hesitated to make that jump, but I am so glad I decided to treat myself for my birthday this year (and honestly, who buys things thinking they will sell them later down the line?). I purchased mine at the local Saks Fifth Ave but you can also find them on YSL’s website. The color ways change each year and season, so you can check online to see what the new versions look like if there isn’t one you love for sale currently.Continue reading “Review: YSL New Wave 181 LouLou Sunnies”
Being quarantined has reminded me of the time I worked a four on four off schedule. While I had a lot more days off back then, I found myself at home and browsing Instagram and my favorite shops constantly. I did a lot of shopping and you would think that not being able to visit stores would prevent doing that, but oh man, over the last few months it has certainly gotten done.
Makeup, masks, knick-knacks… I didn’t discriminate. Because so many of these things are less than a month old, I’m really hoping I love them (or can get my money’s worth from them) in the long run!Continue reading “Things I Hope I Love in September”
Gorillaz * June 29th, 2018 * Parlaphone and Warner Brothers
When Gorillaz, everyone’s favorite animated Brit alternative rock/pop/electronic hip-hop band, released Humanz in 2017 I fell back into my preteen obsession. I mean, full speed ahead, non-stop listening, buying ALL of their albums on vinyl (yes, I did get that red Demon Days pressing. No, I don’t have The Fall… Yet), immediately buying tickets to the closest concert obsession. Happy to report that I’m still riding that train, even happier to repot they dropped another album! Only a year later!Continue reading “The Now Now Review”
