Loreal Miss Manga Rock Mascara Review

L’Oreal Miss Manga Rock fixed some of the issues I had with it’s older sister Miss Manga (review here). My biggest issues with Miss Manga were the wand (which started to grate on my nerves after a while), the color (not nearly dark enough), and the fact that it flaked. Despite the fact it fixed some of these issues, it’s […]

Sheamoisture Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Shampoo

There are very few reviews I don’t want to write. Very few. This is one of them. I didn’t want to write a review for SheaMoisture Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Shampoo because it’s one of the few SheaMoisture products that I can regularly find on the shelves. And I’m scared that if more people know exactly […]

Favorite Masks For A DIY Facial

I’m really into layering skin care products. Very into it. But I’m most into layering masks for a DIY facial to unwind on Friday nights. Because what’s better than putting on your favorite lounge wear, curling up with a good book, a cup of extremely hot mint tea, and an facial? My Inspiration After weeks […]

Foreo Luna Mini Review

After going back and forth on cleansing brushes, I ended up snagging a Foreo Luna Mini (aka “The Face Vibrator” according to my friend KMC) from Sephora. I picked this one because it (1) didn’t have brush heads, which made it more affordable in the long run, (2) it’s silicone and therefore super easy to clean, and (3) it’s […]

Simple Micellar Cleansing Water Review

I picked up Simple Micellar Cleansing Water because I had a gift card at Target and I figured why not try something new and kind of weird. The fact that that I’ve been super intrigued by the brand, it’s one of the few drugstore options marketed exclusively for super sensitive skin like mine, helped me justify it […]

Miss Manga Black Angel Mascara Review

L’Oreal’s Miss Manga Black Angel Mascara has been on my radar since it launched because manga lashes are my kinda lashes. Lots of volume, length, and the perfect amount of clumpiness. My hope that this would be THE mascara for me were raised even higher once I heard it was part of the Voluminous line. Voluminous Carbon Black is hands down […]

Things I’m Into This Week 04-03-2015

I needed to buy new dress pants for work this week. And you know I want I found? Ankle pants. Everything was an ankle pant. I hate ankle pants. I have a border lining irrational hatred of ankle pants. I’m pretty convinced no one looks good in them with the exception of the modelesque who look great […]

Embracing Minimalism (Slowly)

One of the reasons I disappeared towards the end last year were the sudden illnesses and/or deaths of several friends and family members. One night, during a particularly rough patch, I stood in front of my closet and said “this needs to go. All of it. Right. Now.” I tore through it and ended up donating […]

What a $1.99 Lipstick Taught Me

I’ve never been a fan of lipstick-I had a complex about my lips for a long while. I didn’t inherit my Mother’s sharp Clara Bow lips or my Dad’s full lips that slope upwards at the corner making it look like he’s always smiling. I ended up with, what I considered, the non-functioning prototype of […]
