Merry Christmas!

Christmas is upon us!


I've been loving SNL lately, and this is a mash-up of my favorite things!

Serial has blown up since it's first broadcast, and it's not too late for you to catch up! Binge listen to the 12 episodes of Serial on your favorite podcast source.


And enjoy the holiday!

Random stuff about my life now.

What I'm reading: I'm past the halfway point of the first Game of Thrones (finally!). And working on Happier by Tal Ben-Shahar Ph.D
What I'm watching: Bad Girls Club, Dr. Who with Peter Capaldi, SNL, Peep Show. When I finish Peep Show, I'm going to get into Twin Peaks! Possible post on Peep Show to ensue.
Craft of the moment: A periwinkle cabled scarf (need to find my cable needle so I don't have to keep using a safety pin!)
Currently Wondering: if I can make RSAMLN (Random Stuff About My Life Now) a thing. I'll at least try to make this a regular type of post. 

Let me know in the comments if you've enjoyed any of the above, or anything else I should get into!

Revlon Colorstay Foundation




Revlon Colorstay Foundation is honestly my holy grail for foundations. I've tried a handful of other drugstore foundations and tinted moisturizer, but this is the best. NOTE: ELF Tinted Moisturizer is probably my second favorite of them all lately -especially when you take price and coverage into account.

I've tried both the liquid and whipped versions of Revlon Colorstay... I'm in 320 True Beige. I really don't think I'll stray far from this foundation mostly because the color match (for me) is sooooo goooood.

Actually, it's because of this that I've stocked up on it while it was on sale. And because of this, this will probably be the last makeup review post I have for a while. I'm working on a couple things that are on they way out: the Olay CC Cream, the Neutrogena Eye Brightening Concealer, my shampoo and conditioner, and my huge bottle of lotion.

I feel like once I hit a point where there's nothing really on it's last legs, I'll film (?!) an empties video. You will all get to see how awkward I am!

Or how lovely.

Just like you!

Have a great weekend, loves!

Garnier Nourishing Cleansing Oil



I spotted this and had heard about people using oils to cleanse... I knew I had to try it.

I have weird combination skin erring on the side of dry, although every now and then I need a product to dry me out a little bit. Basically, this is for when I remember to wash my face at night.

I wasn't convinced at first... Used it and was like "oookay..."

Then I heard a tip from Grav3yardGirl/Bunny Meyer who heard it from her Instagram: rub or leave on your facial cleanser for two minutes. Usually, I just have the patience for one minute in the shower.

Using this product in particular, when I leave it on for 2 minutes, my skin gets super soft! No lotion needed!

NOW, I recommend it... probably even ANY oil to cleanse.

I really need to look into coconut oil. (I know, I know! I'm so behind the curve!)
