Hello again, friend of a friend, I knew you when our common goal was waiting for the world to end





If the world is really ending in 2012 than I suggest you get your apologies in order. You had better pay those student loans, feed the dogs and iron some pants. Wait on your lawn with a cake and some candles, throw up your hands like the 4th of July.

Makeup haul/review

The Body Shop's new Fall Makeup line

I purchased the 2nd blusher "Cool Dusk" a soft pink muted blush with a natural-looking shimmer highlight. This is a perfect color for fair skin maidens (such as myself.) $16.10 (no tax)

L'Oreal Extra Volume Collagen Hydra Collagen Mascara (longest name,ever!)

This is by far the best mascara I've ever used. It lengths, thickens and makes you look like you're wearing falsies. It's super build able and clump-free. I use the non-waterproof formula because it's more conditioning than waterproof formulas. I reccomend this to anybody who wants bomb-ass lashes. $7 drugstores everywhere.

FRESH Lip Sugar treatment

The Body Shop

I hesitantly bought this lip treatment last winter. I couldn't justify spending $22 on basically a lip balm but my friend (as well as the Sephora worker) talked me into it, and I'm sure glad they did. This is by far the best lip balm/lip treatment I have ever used. I was blessed with big lips, which unfortunately are more prone to drying and chapping in the cold north east winters. This treatment is a witches brew full of magical reparative oils, waves and real sugar. There is SPF to prevent aging as well as a sweet and tart blackcurrant oil which cushions the lips with essential plumping fatty acids. Antioxidant grapeseed polyphenols and vitamins A,C, and E provide extra protection. It smells like lemon pound cake and tastes like fruitloops. $22.50 (no tax)

Laura Mercier Lip Silk : Lip Balm

This is a perfect "before bed" treatment. This is a retexurizing lip balm that removes dry, flaky skin and leaves a nourishing blend of vitamin E. This is a perfect product to prepare your lips for the winter, and just remember a little goes a long way. $20.00 (no tax) Sephora

Sephora brand Slim Pencil

These are a super blendable lip-liner that can worn as a lip stain. These are only $5 (hardly breaking the bank.) I bought Nude #144 and Red #45


channeling my inner Kat Dennings

It seems this fall that I'm a little obsessed with lips, kiss kiss xx
