Love.

Happy Valentine's Day...if you're into that sort of thing.

While capitalism will sensationalize any event/Season/occurrence to get us to spend money and then market it that's how you show love, that isn't what I'm talking about now.

I wanted to remind you to love yourself, first and foremost. I know, I know. Cheesy right? But hear me out. We talk a lot about makeup here; y'all know I too love a lipstick but don't let any forum, any medium - not even #TeamModen - convince you that you need any superficial thing to be beautiful. You most certainly don't need anyone to be whole. The media machine is driven to flood you with insecurities since if you're unaware you'd be constantly seeking an outward solution. And that's where the big bucks are - putting plasters on the sores that are insecurities.

There is no outward solution.

Love yourself cause you're enough. Do the things that make you a better person and make no apologies for it.

Love yourself like Logan loves himself ;) That sounds so Kanye-ish!



I hope the coming week is your best one yet.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

Top Ten Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations

It's that time again. I'm not sure of the dates as yet but one major thing has changed: Sephora no longer ships to commercial addresses 😡I discovered this recently after two of my orders were cancelled. Their customer service said it is something they were cracking down on since late July. Stupse. Sephora clearly ain't care about those of us who have to use mail forwarders. Soooooo yeah...less hauls for me in the future which I am annoyed about. More money for Beautylish den *insert Kanye shrug*

Regular readers have seen my wish list posts every time the sale is approaching. I love watching these types of videos on YouTube so I always want to throw my hat in the ring. There are a couple recommendation posts on this blog as well but this year I wanted to narrow it down to my top ten. Now, of course they're plenty favourites I'd like to mention but in efforts to make this concise...
