Colour Experiments: Eyeshadow

I’m terrified of bold colours on my face, with the exception of a fun lipstick. Pretty boring, hey? Sarah and I were chatting, and I was eyeing up a Melt palette, and was torn between the Muerte and Gemini palettes. If you remember back to late 2018, I bought a Juvia’s Place Magic Mini on…

Review: Paul & Joe Lipsticks

I know that lipstick sales have tanked hard during the pandemic, but I really still love lipstick. It’s my feel-good cosmetic product that always makes me feel put together and adult like. Is that a weird thing to say? Eyeliner and mascara have always been my go-tos through my teens and 20s, and especially now…

Whole30 Summer 2020 Days 25-30

Day 25: Errrrrr don’t remember Day 26-28: Ditto Day 29: Oveja con trufa cheese happened. It’s amazing if you can ever get your hands on it. Day 30: I gave up…But I figured I’d eat 80-90% this way all of the time. Woot woot! All in all, I love the Whole30 and love how it…

Whole30 Redo: Days 8-24

Day 8: I booked a boudoir session for the fall. I guess this is motivation? Day 9: 2 meals had beanless chili. I’m at the point in my Whole30 where food feels like it’s for survival and not for enjoyment. I hate this. Day 10: I’m so so so so close to eating goddamn popcorn….

Whole 30: A Redo (Days 1-7)

Starting a Whole30 pre-vacation feels a little silly. I got home last Friday night and decided that Saturday I’d start over. I’ve decided to keep a short diary to describe each day of the Whole 30. Day 1: You moody, moody SOB. Day 2: I’m hungry. Second dinner in my mouth. I had what I’d…

Whole30: Part I

I did about four successfully modified Whole30s in 2016-2017 (I quit my last one because I found out I was pregnant/suspected I was). The results were always great, but the process difficult. I’m not really into dieting at all, or cutting out whole food groups, but I did like the Whole30 solely for weight loss…

Dry Shampoo Extravaganza!

Going as long as humanly possible between washes is all the rage the last couple of years! And very appropriately, I washed my hair today (I managed to get 3 and a bit days between washes). Last March, I was at a friend’s house with an acquaintance who is a hairdresser. I mentioned I have…

Cleaning Out My Closet

For the millionth time, I’ve run into a slight dilemma with the closet situation: I have my pre-partum clothes (25 lbs less my current weight and could wear whatever I wanted – this includes fancy clothes and office clothes and a few casual pieces). And I have my post-partum clothes (office wear since I started…
