Shit, girl. WHAT A BEAST

Starting today, August 15, 2014, I will start one year of not buying any makeup. I don’t consider myself a major make-up hoarder but I have reached the point where I have a comfortable make-up routine and don’t need anything else. So here it begins. 


-no new eyeshadow- I have enough pallets of multiple color dimensions to last me a couple years at least

-bb cream, foundation, bronzer, blush can ONLY be replaced when all other products in the same category have been used up

-no new nail polish, only remover

-no new tools, ie brushes, sponges, etc. 

I will be posting monthly updates (hopefully) of products I have used up and how my progress is going. 

I also unsubscribed to a lot of make-up mailing lists like Sigma,, etc. Still holding out on Sephora/Ulta because they give free items for birthdays.

or at least pescetarian as a starting point. I recently watched Earthlings and it made me sick. The cruelty with which we treat the animals we raise for food is absolutely inhumane and irresponsible. They live in conditions completely against their natural instincts and their deaths are neither quick nor merciful. I am not against killing animals for meat as food; I believe that animal meat can be a healthy part of the human diet. However, I do not believe in eating meat that has been raised this way; it’s unethical. 

If you’re interested in watching this documentary here is the link to watch it for free.

WARNING: It is extremely graphic and gruesome. I consider myself pretty thick skinned with blood and guts, but I had to watch this over the course of a couple of days because it can be too much. 






Doughnuts are bad for you.

I’m pretty sure a krispy kreme ad just summarized my views on health better than I can.

-1/4 tsp salt
-1/2 cup cocoa powder

3. Pour batter into a greased 8x8 baking pan
