Grande Cosmetics VoxBox


I received my fourth VoxBox, complimentary of Influenster, a week and a half ago. If you’re new here and don’t know what Influenster is yet, it’s a site/app that gives you the opportunity to receive and try products for free in exchange for reviewing, sharing on social media, and completing a survey afterwards.

I have to admit, I had not heard of Grande Cosmetics prior to this, but I was definitely intrigued once I got the email that I would be receiving this box. I had never used eyelash serum or primer before, but I was definitely excited to try them. Especially since I don’t have very long lashes.

St. Patrick’s Day Makeup Looks [Collab with AyR Galaxy]


I am beyond excited to be posting my first collaboration with Rossy from AyR Galaxy! I contacted her a couple weeks ago about doing a St. Patrick’s Day makeup post. We both like trying out different looks, and we’re on a similar skill level when it comes to makeup, so I felt like we would be a great match together.

I thought it would pretty cool if we each did two looks and then split those among our blogs. I am posting one of my looks here on my blog, and Rossy will be posting the other look I created on her blog. Likewise, I’m posting one of her looks here, and she will be posting her other look on her own blog. So make sure you check out her blog post so you can see the other great looks we created!

Fast Food & What I Will Not Order

When I did my Fast Food Thoughts & What I Order post, I never imagined it would be one of my most popular blog posts so far. It was just something quick and fun I did, but I’m glad you all enjoyed it. I thought I would do a little spinoff and post items from the same fast food places that you would likely never find me ordering.


Hotcakes & McGriddles
I do like pancakes, but I can only eat a small portion or else they make me really nauseous. There would be no point in me ordering hotcakes, in which you get several, when I wouldn’t be able to eat more than one. McGriddles are somewhat okay, but you wouldn’t find me ordering any because I will always opt for the McMuffin instead.

March Blogger Questionnaire: Feeling Lucky


It seems like just yesterday that I was posting the February questionnaire, and now here we are again. We’re a week into March already! This year is flying by, but then again, when does it not? At least for me. Anyways, if you’ve been around for a while, you know the drill. If not, this month’s questions are below, and you can choose to answer one, several, or all of them. It’s totally up to you. I always enjoy reading your answers.

Do you have any Irish ancestry?

Have you been having more good luck or bad luck recently?

Do you play the lottery?

Do you gamble? (Other than the lottery)

Do you believe in Karma?

Do you believe that everything happens for a reason?

As always, my answers will be in the comments.




I had Friday off work because I had to wake up at 5:30 am to take my mom to a medical appointment. She was being put under anesthesia, so she couldn’t drive. I’m usually just going to sleep between 4 and 5 am, so I wasn’t too happy about this. I had requested the day off work (even though I’m not scheduled until 2 pm) because I figured afterwards I would come home and sleep most of the day.

Surprisingly, I didn’t feel much like going to sleep once I got home. I drank an energy drink and then I decided to go get my hair done because it really needed it. I didn’t really know for sure what I wanted done, so I kind of just made up my mind when I got there. I was thinking about just getting my blonde touched up, but I also mentioned possibly wanting to go pink again. My stylist was really excited about that because she said she hadn’t got to do pink hair in years. She said everyone seems to want blue or purple hair. I actually did almost go blue too, but I decided against it since when it fades it usually leaves a greenish tint to your hair.

February Glam Bag


I’m a little late getting this post up. It’s already March! I’ve been quite stressed out at work this week, and as soon as I get home I just feel like crashing. That’s what I almost did tonight too, but I had to muster up the motivation to get this up so that I don’t stray too far off schedule.

The bag:
The design this month has a classy and elegant feel to it, though it’s not one of my favorites. I don’t dislike it either, I’m just sort of indifferent to it. I don’t really use the bags though. I just kind of hoard them.

Weekly Photo Roundup #2


I didn’t do one of these posts last week, but like I said I probably won’t do them every week because sometimes I don’t take that many photos. It really just depends. This post will feature some photos I took from last weekend to this weekend, plus some tidbits about what I’ve been up to. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you might have already seen some of these.

Last Friday, after I got home from work, I decided to have some fun with the Huji Cam app. It’s one of my favorite apps. It’s a camera that you can take photos with, and as soon as you snap a photo it will say “developing”. Then it will go into the “lab” which is a photo album inside of the app. You can view the photos there and decide to save them or delete them. The app automatically and randomly applies different colors, light leaks, grain, etc. to give photos a disposable camera effect. You don’t get to choose the end result of the photo since it randomizes the effects as soon as you snap the photo, but I think that’s part of the fun.
