So, this is a bit embarrassing, but…

I don’t have a post ready for you because I keep researching things that I find interesting in my should-be-blogging time.


(Ahh!! If you switch out the period in that emoticon, you get the face of a tiny, adorable animal!)


(Maybe it’s a bear or an armadillo or something. Or a tiny sleeping earless puppy.)

Anyhow, I feel sort of bad for doing this because I did another filler post not long ago, but: here, have a pretty picture of Jasika Nicole’s face! (Source.) Fact: all pictures of Jasika Nicole’s face are pretty.

And then there’s this crazy, almost-physics-defying sofa-to-bunkbed contraption! (Here)

And, finally, something that’s at least a little bit relevant: Clinique Almost Lipsticks! (Review upcoming.)

Talk to you soon, lovelies ;) Sorry for the delays!

I know it’s hard to believe, but I have not in fact died.

So, I guess I like, went and got really ill and returned to school and started Remicade and blah blah blah, which sort of led to our posting schedule getting shot to hell. (Remember the good old days, when I used to post, like, fifty times in a month?) (… yeah, I don’t remember them too well, either. Everything’s kind of a blur.)

Anyhow. Let’s fix this neglecting thing, yeah? :) Here’s what I’ve been up to.

A tangent about… hair

For starters, I went and put a bunch of black lowlights into my hair. Which is exciting! (Be excited, dammit, it’s exciting.) I mean, you’d assume that my hair would already be pretty black to begin with (what with the being Asian thing and all), but it’s actually quite light – light enough that my natural colour is now functioning as highlights.

(Just how light, exactly? Check out my hair in this postthat’s how light.)

I wasn’t sure about it at first, but now I’m certain: I love it. I love it a ridiculous, ridiculous amount. I can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner!

A tangent about… closets

And then there was a closet redo. I forgot to take “before” photos, because I’m ridiculous and forgetful, but here’s a quick photo of the “after.” I’ve long been a fan of built-in shelving (it just feels so roomy!) but – well, let’s just say that I’m inordinately pleased with this as well.

(Yes, before you ask, I’m a bit of a clothing minimalist. This is in part due to the fact that I feel uncomfortable about extraneous items, but honestly? It has more to do with the fact that I absolutely abhor shopping.)

A tangent VERY RELEVANT SEGMENT about pretty shoes

One of the things I found while cleaning out my closet was my favourite pair of heels: my “goal shoes,” if you will. One of these days, I’m going to be well enough that I can wear them again, without having to worry about MTP swelling or spinal support or ankle joints.

This is the plan.

It’s going to be fantastic.

And, lastly, late at night:

Hope you’ve all been well!! xxx

The “beauty inbox” | a drabble about a bowl

Sunday, July 31, 2011

Normal offices have in boxes, out boxes, plain ol’ boxes… but product junkies and beauty bloggers? We have to get – shall we say – inventive. I mean, you try putting lipsticks into a filing cabinet and keeping everything orderly. It just doesn’t work!

I was recently gifted an absolutely gorgeous bowl (thanks, mom!) and I’ve been giving it a go as a “beauty inbox” – that is, a place where I can put the products I’ve yet to test out & review*. Once I’ve photographed a product, it goes into a drawer to be swatched; once that’s happened, it moves to either the “future box”, the giveaway drawer, or… this!

(Actually, that’s a bit of a lie – sometimes they end up  next to my laptop, too. If I’m trying to pressure myself into reviewing something ASAP, it’s easier if it’s constantly in my line of sight!)

*Which is necessary for the sole reason of “I’m prone to being distracted by other pretty, shiny things and forgetting about them.” See also: magpies and attention deficit disorder

It has occurred to me that I’ve basically just babbled for 160 characters so that I’d have an excuse to post photos of a bowl.

There is something either very, very wrong with this or something very, very right.

Indoor swings

I’ve been completely in love with these recently, and totally want one to call my own. (Likelihood: 0/10) What do you ladies think of them?

Have been craving…

… a plush, squat, white or off-white slipper chair. I think it would look lovely next to my new dresser! (Photos to come as soon as it’s done.)

More ideas for a duvet cover

I like these ones a lot more than the last batch ;)
