Weekly Window Shopping: emandsprout on etsy

Good morning everyone!

Today I thought I would share some cute finds from a store on etsy, called emandsprout. There are a lot more cut things to look at on the seller's page, but I picked just four things that I liked the most.

Alpaca Love Ladies T-Shirt, $19
Isn't this a cute Reese and Cyrus (from AC: NL) shirt? I love it! T-shirts aren't always my favorite because I don't like things to be close to my neck, but I love the scoop in this t-shirt, and the design.

Lady Fox Sleep Mask, $18
Panda Sleep Mask, $18
Fox Face Mary Janes, $28
I'm super excited about the fox mary janes, as my SO ordered a pair for me as an anniversary gift. I'll be sure to post a review when they arrive!

Is there anything else from this seller you like? Or do you like my picks? Let me know!

Cheers!

Hey everyone! My scumbag brain decided we needed to get up at 7 am instead of 7:45 this morning, so I actually had the time to do a full face of makeup (yay?). Let me just say that I fuckin LOVE the soft matte lip creams from Nyx. I also own Addis Ababa and it's so poppin. They go on fairly well but the staying power isn't great and I do find them to be drying. But the pay off is definitely worth it. 

Gel liner is not my friend, let me tell you. I've always had a hard time applying it, but I was really feeling a winged eyeliner look today so I thought fuck it, why not and went with it anyway.

What looks have you been rockin lately? Let me know!

Cheers!

The end is near, but not close enough

Hey guys.


Hopefully I'll graduate in a few weeks, but until then, here's a picture of the makeup I did while trying desperately to procrastinate (hence the shitty webcam picture). I'm not a great blogger right now, but I've been thinking about this a lot, and I know I'll be back soon! It's just hard right now. :C

I've also started Good Night Minneapolis, which is another blog by me (obviously), but more about just... Stuff in life in general. Movies I watch, books I read, shit I do. I miss writing and I miss the more creative aspect of my life, so that's where that all goes.

Now, back to writing my thesis paper on the Thebaid!

Cheers.

Beauty Protector Leave in Conditioner Review

Good afternoon all!

I have somehow misplaced the cord for my camera (and my laptop doesn't have a slot for my SD card) so please bear with the webcam picture coming up in 3... 2... 1...


So my roommate gets a Birchbox every month, which is awesome for her (I do not). Last night she left me with this Beauty Protector Leave in Conditioner and as you can see it got great reviews.

WHY THE FUCK THEN DOES IT NOT WORK??

I have no way of reviewing the product because zero product comes out. Zero. None. None at all. Sarah, a reviewing of the product, agrees. "I really do like the smell of this product however I couldn't get the sample size to spray. The product itself was very thick so I don't think it could have come out as a spray. Maybe I just got a bad batch but its enough to discourage me from trying it again". I couldn't agree more.

I'm not sure if it's just the sample size, and the normal size is fine? I have no idea. But the product is waaaaaay too thick to come out in a spray (it's literally the consistency of conditioner you get out of the bottle). I'm not really sure what they were thinking.

Basically, 0/10 would not recommend.

Has anyone tried the full-sized product? Or did your sample size work? Let me know!

Cheers!

P.S. - My roommate's cat makes an appearance in this picture; Carlos is a huge attention whore and would not leave me alone. :P

Weekly Window Shopping: Purple Fish Bowl on Storenvy/Etsy

Good morning everyone!

It's been a long while, and I apologize. Life is one of those things that I try and be prepared for, but sometimes it sneaks up on me and I get caught up in things I need to do! (In this case, it was lots of school work and work work stuff.)

Anyway, I've been doing a lot of online window shopping (who doesn't?) and this week I have for you some lovely items I found from a store that's set up both on Storenvy and Etsy, called Purple Fish Bowl.They have women's clothes and an interesting, unique sort of selection (I would say). Here are some pieces for you to look at!

Design Fine Art Collection Story Book in Oil Painting... , $80
Design Fine Art Collection Middle Ages Cafe de Paris Oil Painting... , $90
Design Fine Art Collection The Artist in Montmartre... , $115
Designed Japanese Collection Gorgeous... , $279
What do you think? Do you have a favorite collection or piece? Let me know!

Cheers!

I'm back!

Hey everyone!

Man oh man, they sure do keep you busy right before spring break, and let me tell you, I have been super bogged down with class work and with work work. So I apologize! But I've been thinking of a lot of things, trying to decide what I want to post about, and I will be making a new post soon!

Cheers!
