A Quick Life Update

Hi Beautiful Blossoms! I have a bit of downtime with my extra work shift so I figured I'd check in to see what was the last thing I wrote here. And it was a pretty dark entry, especially with what happened when it was written. Today's post has a bit more cheer: I managed to pass …

The BBA Makeup Workhorses

Hey, Beautiful Blossoms! I'm glad to be able to sneak in a blog entry today - between working my regular and overtime hours, shuffling between the old apartment and the new house, and trying to get my licensing exam in order, it's nice to be able to talk about something that's completely unrelated to all …

A Breather Entry

Hey Beautiful Blossoms! After being on hiatus for over a month, I finally got the chance to come back and just do a quick entry - I hadn't realized that the last entry that I wrote was on March 7, but that's what happens when moving plans fall apart get delayed, family members have a …

Active on Insta. Blogging… Not So Much.

Intagramming is hella easy. You just gather the stuff you like, snap a pic with a phone or tablet or an iPod, and voila: easy peasy lemon squeasy result. My Insta feed has featured a shit ton of haul pics. It's no secret that I'm a makeup addict (and I don't say that with pride, …

So I Bought Me an Artis Brush Set.

Like I mentioned in the BBA Insta, some people got bae. I got me. And for Valentine's Day, I decided to treat myself to a 5-piece Artis brush set because I wanted to see what the hype was all about. Price aside, the biggest appeal of any Artis brush is the soft bristle. This thing …

IMATS NYC 2017

What's up, Beautiful Blossoms? I hope you're all alive and reasonably well in spite of all the craziness that's happening all over the planet. But I'm not gonna make this into a political rant (because there's just an oversaturation oozing from pretty much every major media outlet in existence) because even I'm tired of it. …

Me and Instagram Cateyes.

Or, to be fair, it's more drag makeup cateyes than Instagram cateyes. Anyway, I finally convinced myself to practice cateye makeup after telling myself (and buying a couple of e.l.f. eyeliners for practice) that I need to do it to get better with the cateye. Because I have shitty hand-eye coordination and, if you noticed …

2017: Year of Moar Selfies

That's right: this year, I'm going to try and work up the nerve to post more selfies. While wearing a face full of what's in my stash. I'm not a selfie person. To me, people who constantly take selfies are perceived as narcissists - it doesn't bother me if you're by yourself and snapping away, …

When You Have a Massive Makeup Collection

And most of it has already been reviewed to death by other beauty bloggers / vloggers because it's all about the latest and the greatest... I swear, I probably made a blog post similar to this at some point last year but I can't remember and I don't feel any motivation to go through my …

Cubicle Makeup.

Or the frustration of wearing eyeshadows with them not being noticed.  At one point or another, you've heard about it or noticed that every brand's got that one palette with safe colors.  Cubicle makeup. Sometimes called "professional setting makeup, "office makeup," "work-safe," or something along that line. There's always a new term used to describe the …
