Bye-bye, Panda Eyes!

bye bye panda eyes

I have this bad habit of saying I’ll do something, but then never getting around to it. I also leave crap around ALL THE TIME because I tell myself I’ll clean it up “later.” My boyfriend calls them my mountains.

This could very quickly turn into a post littered with self-loathing, with me berating myself over never getting anything done on time and my apparently inability to be a real adult,…

keepin’ it classy

Now that I’ve finally finished that makeup series, it’s time to shake things up a little! I was reading through my blog and I honestly found it boring. All I’ve posted about so far is flash sales, my monthly empties, and The Body Shop. Snooze fest.

So, I’m going to venture into style posts! I’m still trying to figure out a way to take pictures of my outfits. I’m too self-conscious to venture…

butter LONDON is on Hautelook!

hautelook butter LONDON

One of my favorite nail polish brands, butter LONDON, is on sale on Hautelook today!

Their formula is a dream to work with and it’s easily my favorite out of all the polishes I own. The only reason I don’t own more is because they’re pricey, at around $15 USD per bottle. But you can nab some today for cheaper, so haaayyy!

I’m very tempted to pick up this set:

10 Days of The Body Shop: Day 10

10 Days of The Body Shop: Day 10

You guys. We did it. I finally made it to the tenth day. And you put up with my crap this whole time. Medals all around!

For the tenth and final day (thank God, I am never doing a ten day series ever again), I decided to do something a little different. Instead of challenging myself to come up with a new look, I wanted to show you guys my fall back look: what I slap on my face when I have very…

Liebster Award Nomination

wpid-liebster

Huh. Despite my sporadic posting, I’ve somehow managed to be nominated for this award.

I’ve been nominated by Clare’s Beauty Blog. She’s a 25 year old beauty blogger from the UK. I always like reading blogs by non-Americans; it adds some cultural beauty perspective and insight to brands that we don’t get Stateside. Thanks for seeing potential in me and my little blog! :)

The rules are:

I bought these three eyeshadows in London. I tried depotting the bright pink one as well, but it started to crack and I was afraid the whole thing would fall apart. I went into The Body Shop in London to look for that shade specifically, and to have it crack would be a…

Heyyy, getting this up relatively early this month!

A lot of my products are running out at the same time, so this month there are actually more empties than throwaways.

10 Days of The Body Shop: Day 08

10 Days of The Body Shop: Day 08

All right, I’mma be honest with y’all: I’m getting sick and tired of these FOTDs. In the future, I’m going to keep it to a 5 day maximum. Ten days is too much and it gets boring, and Lord knows I don’t want to be pigeonholed as “The Body Shop girl.” I haven’t even done day 10 yet, and I started this in November. NOVEMBER.

Onwards ho!

It’s not particularly patriotic, but then again, neither am I. Happy Burfday, ‘Murica.

Red: Sephora by OPI Personal Shopper
White: Essie Blanc
Blue: Sephora by OPI Indi-Go With the Flow

I need to find a new white. This one is pretty goopy and streaky, even after I poured in nail polish thinner, twice. Any suggestions?
