Trying SLS-free shampoo

Trying SLS-free shampoo

A couple of weeks ago, my bottles of my beloved Bumble&bumble Curl Conscious were running out, and taking a look at my budget, I decided that I might need to cut back on my haircare expenses for a while. I consulted with my stylist/bestie JoAnn,…

New Set of Shades, Pt. 2

New Set of Shades, Pt. 2

Okay, I’m still on the search for a good pair of glasses. I think I finally decided on the Sims frames from Warby Parker, but HEY, I’ve got more flex spending account money left after I buy those. I might as well buy MORE! Whitney…

My Daily Makeup

My Daily Makeup

Now that I’m back at work, and have to be halfway presentable on a daily basis, I’ve had to get back into the routine of wearing a little something on my face so that I don’t look like a dead person moving about the halls…

Now that we’re getting towards the end of the year, I’m once again on the search for a new pair of glasses. My trek last year ended with me getting these bad boys, which I actually don’t wear on a regular basis: This year, I…

May 2012 Birchbox

May 2012 Birchbox

I’m still into makeup and taking better care of my skin/body, even though I haven’t posted about it in forevers. I’m gestating, not dead! Of course, between being tired/distracted and that whole “nursing school” thing, I’ve been quietly receiving my Birchboxes every month and not…

Makeup Intro!

I decided to do a video where I talk about my makeup haul from this post, to give an update on the things I’ve been using and how I like them. Wheee!

32 Before Thirty-Two

32 Before Thirty-Two

So far in my life, I’ve made two attempts at broad “life lists”: the 101 things in 1001 days list, and the 30 Before 30 list that I put here. Both had pretty sad, pathetic results. So I should obviously try again, RIGHT? Right. I’m…

Glasses glasses glasses!

Glasses glasses glasses!

Last year, I bumped my Flex Spending account up to $600 for the year to buy a nice pair of glasses (and got a lovely pair of Lafont cat-eye frames out of the deal, at the VERY LAST MOMENT), and stupid me, I forgot to…
