A Patient Hubs, And Some Numbers

This is husbandly dedication. I bought a charcoal/volcanic ash facial peel mask thing and I wanted to try it out on hubs.

img_3091

Best. Sport. Ever. Not only did he let me put it on him, he let me take a pic. He was grossed out by it going on, amused by peeling it off but overall could not care less. 😉

On a different note-we are at 1.4 million views. MILLION. Damn y’all, thats only in 6 mos!!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I love you all, and am so grateful.

Also, I tried out one of the Biobelle masks from Boxycharm-first I used the Dr Brandt microdermabrasion, then the “I Woke Up Like This” mask-it’s really really nice. Not sticky, smells awesome. It’s a go, not a no.

That’s all I got for now-working on the next Prison Diaries chapter-it’s coming SOON.

June Boxycharm

My June Boxycharm FINALLY landed in my mailbox today-it shipped on like, June 7. I feel like it stopped every 100 feet! Anyway, it was worth the wait.

img_3099
This month’s theme is “Downtown Charm”. Cute, right?

First-the Real Her Palette.

I received the nude collection. It swatches nicely, seems pretty pigmented. The lighter colors actually show up way better in person:

img_3095
I think I’ll like playing with this palette and I wanted the nude one. So, that’s a win. This retails for 28$.
****
Next, the Luxie Rose Gold Pro Precision Tapered Face Brush

img_3104
As usual, I love this brush. It’s great for highlighter or brushing away extra setting powder, and Luxie brushes are bomb. Retails for 24$.
****
Diamond Glow Powder by Artist Couture

img_3103

img_3102

This powder is SO PRETTY. It’s intense, so if you use it as highlight be aware if you tend to be heavy handed. You can brush this loose powder on your collarbone, shoulders, wherever you want a little shimmer. It’s beautiful-a gold tone, but not glitter.

img_3101
This retails for 26.99$
****
Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Lipstick

img_3094
I received the shade Santa Ana, which is the one I wanted, yay. It’s a berry-wine color, gorgeous.

img_3093
This is probably one of the best liquid lip formulas out there. It’s not drying, it’s not thick, nor is it runny. It smells AWESOME, like a light vanilla scent. Not overpowering either. I absolutely love this formula. Retails for 19.90$.
***
Last, but not least! 3 Biobelle Cosmetics sheet masks.

img_3100
There are 3 different types: one called “I Woke Up Like This” which has wild rose and vitamin C, and enhances skin’s natural glow. The next Mask has pomegranate and hyaluronic acid and is called “#1 Beauty Secret”. This one moisturizers and helps skin appear smooth and firm. The last one has tea tree oil, rosehip extract and vitamin C and is a primer for before you apply your makeup. Sounds neat-I’m definitely trying that. These 3 retail for 14.97$ total.

img_3092

And there you have it, June’s Boxycharm! I’m happy with it, the Ofra lip is a great product, the palette and powder are promising. I always love me some Luxie brushes. The value of this box is 114$. That’s on the lower value end of what I’ve received but I’m fine with that-for 21$ a month? Can’t complain.

Mont Bleu: Some European Ingenuity

I received these items in a PR package from Mont Bleu, a company out of Prague. I’ll be honest, I was a little doubtful, but figured I’d give them a shot-boy, was I pleasantly surprised. It was great because I am a nail girl, I do my own nails multiple times a week, so I was eager to try this stuff.

img_3079

What are they? Nail files-but not just any bail files. They’re made of glass, and embellished with Swarovski crystals. And holy cow, do they work. I was thinking “glass? How is glass going to file?” But the file end is rough, not as rough and harsh as an emory board but just as efficient.

img_3082

They did a fantastic job shaping and smoothing. Oh-this is the new Ipsy nail polish from my June bag as well.

They come on black velvety pouches, and I was dubious at first but pleasantly surprised.

They also sent me cuticle scissors-

img_3080

These are AWESOME. Sharp AF, and the perfect curve. Also great for eyebrow shaping/trimming, the curve is perfect the way it lays against your brow for precise trimming.

Last, but never least-a glass foot scraper and callous remover. OMG. My feet need help y’all, and this is just the thing. Not only does it scrape the dead skin but it leaves your heels/feet so soft-again, pleasantly surprised.

img_3081

It’s neat looking too. I’m really really pleased with these products. Mont Bleu was kind enough to give me a discount code to offer y’all as well-if anyone wants to try these out, us code BLOG at checkout for 20% off.

Oh-shipping only took about 7 days from Prague which is impressive.

Here’s the company info:

Check them out! Despite this being a PR package if anything sucked, I’d tell you honestly, y’all know that about me.

Sunday Funny

Ok-so I was watching a show in ID, I don’t remember what it was, but they were interviewing a cop about a case. This image was in the background-I did a double take, rewound, and paused so I could take a picture because….well, see for yourselves.

img_3078

Does anyone else see what I see?

😂😂😂

Happy Fathers Day to the Dad’s who read, and husbands/dads of my readers ❤️❤️

Update::: below is what I saw 😂

img_3089

What can I say? I’m glad some of y’all said a joint because I couldn’t figure out what it was SUPPOSED to be!

Some Schtuff

What a crazy 24 hours. We broke the internet. Not really, but I like saying it. Anyway…

I received an Ulta shipment for Christmas with some pretty prettiness in it-I’ll be posting and reviewing that shortly, at least part of it. That, my lovelies, is excitement around these parts.

I’m going to order 2 beauty box subscriptions-any suggestions as to which 2 are the best? I can’t wait, and I’m highly disappointed in myself for not knowing about these things of genius sooner. 

I have really tried to make this blog welcoming to everyone, to make it multi dimensional-and inclusive. I wanted it to be a place where you guys could have a kinder, gentler place of refuge. You had formed relationships with each other and needed to get away from that dark, dark place ruled with an iron fist and countless commenting rules. The only rules I have are simple. I will tolerate absolutely zero racism. None. Instant ban forever. It’s never been an issue and I don’t foresee it becoming one but it’s gotta be said. I also don’t love bullying-there’s a difference between disagreeing/debating and bullying-don’t come here flaming and when you get it handed back cry “bullies”. Not gonna work. We are all adults and functioning quite well without strict laws and a dictatorship ordering us to behave, I think we can all tell the difference. That’s it. Post links, name YouTube vids, recipes, books, movies, celebrities, non bravo celebrities-there’s no such thing as OT. This is your forum.  Thank you, lovelies, for your amazing-ness. I’m lucky to be amongst you. 

Talk soon, lovelies

The Day After

I hope you all had a happy and safe holiday full of love and laughter-and y’all got some cool loot.



Butter London lippies, the Philosophy Gingerbread House, also Urban Decay Naked Illuminating Trio and like 7 NYX lipsticks. I’m so thankful and thrilled-😃

Also, I’ve got either bronchitis or pneumonia, not sure which the winner is, but when I go to the Dr later I’m sure to find out. Gah! I haven’t been sick in like, literally YEARS. So it had to happen eventually. 

Hubs is bringing 3rd son to Boston Logan this morning, son 3 is off to St Louis to visit his girlfriend. He’s never flown before so despite him being 18, the mommy in me wants to walk him to the gate and put him in his seat but I know I can’t, he’s got to be a big boy. Sigh.

The ridiculousness of yesterday seems to have died down-it’s funny because every time the pot gets stirred by the other side I get a bunch of emails chock full of-err-interesting info, my traffic spikes, and new commenters show up. So I guess I should say thanks. We’ve been called a “hate site” which we are far from, but if we were I guess now she’d know how Bethenney, Meghan, Yolanda, Amber, etc etc all feel. No one gets told to die, gets terminal cancer wished on them, no one gets their personal information posted, and superwicked sorry but no one cares about the dead sister or her obituary. 


This is what it looks like when pots get stirred and traffic increases. I will NEVER have a “donate” or “Happy Pill Fund” button. EVER. While the traffic spike looks neat, I don’t have ads, don’t make money off of this, and I won’t solicit funds shamelessly or otherwise. I’m doing this because I enjoy it, I love my readers, and maybe, just maybe, I can put something halfway good and decent out there. 

So enough with that malarkey. 

What’s the plan for New Years Eve for everyone? VPR recap tonite, keep your eyes peeled.

Thank you, Lovelies-for everything. You’re all amazing and I’m grateful for every one of you.

Talk soon, Lovelies
