Hello comrades! Apologies for being missing but I took an unexpected trip! I haven’t traveled in 10 years, so it was a great opportunity. Perhaps I will post about it, but I’m playing catch up, so here’s my next empties post. It’s been a couple of months, but I’m still a little surprised that I’ve used up enough products for it. But it is also a … Continue reading September 2017 Empties
Have y’all been watching Ken Burns’s The Vietnam War? I knew his documentaries had a reputation for being long, but 10 parts? And it’s so dense. It’s weird to hear music from The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo against scenes of war when I know the scene from the former is rather salacious. We were supposed to go a “Hippie Fest” a couple of … Continue reading Last Minute Hippie Costume Idea
Hurricane Irma was an incredibly intense and large storm that broke all kinds of records. Some people may envy the year-long warm weather and sunshine of tropical regions, but it does have a price. I’ve lived in Florida all my life and have dealt with my fair share of hurricanes, but this is the first time that I’ve ever went 3 days without power. And … Continue reading Hurricane Irma
This post contains affiliate links. I’ve never really dyed my hair, but that doesn’t mean I don’t often wonder what I’d look like with different colors. As a brunette, going lighter and bleaching can be a hassle and cause for damage concern. Wigs can be a quick and easy, but what am I going to do with it after spending on it? This is why hair … Continue reading Hair Chalk!
So I was originally going to blog about prison labor and companies to avoid, but since writing my Beauty Bakerie post, I’ve been reminded that there’s no ethical consumption under capitalism (hard to trace every factor of a product) and trickle-down economics don’t work. Furthermore, the companies benefiting from what’s being called slavery are the usual suspects like Walmart which may be difficult for poor … Continue reading Shop Latinx Wishlist!
I feel like I’d been seeing the brand that I usually get my concealer from, NYC, disappearing from the shelves, so I started looking for some other affordable ones. Browsing Walmart’s website, I found L.A. Colors and Nabi concealers, both brands offering a wide range of shades. Although they have many colors, it was kind of hard to to find swatches. However, since they are … Continue reading LA Colors & Nabi Concealers Review
When I published my Spring Nails post, I was actually going to write 3 of them– we see how that turned out! Since some of the colors overlap, I reworked them to give summer nail color ideas from my (and mom’s) polish collection. This time, I’m a little more realistic about how much I’ll post. 😅 Let’s Talk & Purple Pizzazz Frost These two purples were … Continue reading Summer Nail Colors
On Thursday, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, passed away. The reported cause is suicide. Linkin Park meant a lot to me. They were my first favorite band (as opposed to liking the pop groups everyone else liked). I was in MSN groups asking why they didn’t sing LP songs on American Idol (give me a break, I was 11). Looking back, I think that as a person … Continue reading RIP Chester
I’ve been trying to be more blogger-y lately– participating in Twitter chats, thinking about doing Instagram stories, and documenting everything. So here I am at the car dealership with some complimentary chips that I’m sure as heck going to take if everything is wrong with my car. I chickened out of taking pictures there. I’m sure I’ve said this before, but I want to develop … Continue reading Stripes and Florals
Hey there reader! Do you have a blog or other website? Is it Google or Facebook? If not, you might be interested in a little idea called net neutrality. Today websites, Internet users and other activists will be taking action to raise awareness about and support for it. Net neutrality prevents Internet Service Providers (Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, etc) from charging websites and apps attracting traffic. … Continue reading Net Neutrality
