We just transferred pretty stories off wordpress.com and onto a self-hosted .org blog! Hopefully I didn’t screw anything up, and everything transferred without anyone noticing! But somehow you ended up here anyway, so you should check out our new posts on http://prettystories.net 😀 😀
I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for this long (i.e. more than three hours) without mentioning my love for Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfume oils. I’ve been collecting them since 2009, but focusing on them never left me enough discretionary cash for their sister site, Black Phoenix Trading Post. But during their Halloween update last year, I finally got to try one of their hair glosses and absolutely loved it. I was really excited to get more, as they had some exclusive scents for New York Comic Con, but I was working there as a crew member and unfortunately when I was finally free to explore the con off-duty, both of them had already sold out. I may or may not have outwardly cried. For hours. ahem. But here is the one I bought last year, Lightning Storm!
Vivid flashes of dazzling electricity: white mint, white tea, white ginger, a jolt of yuzu, and electric green lime!
Whew I think I’m on track with the posts! My goal is basically once a week. Twice if I’m good 😛 But here I am with another one! I am excite. Haha
I had a great day with some shopping luck and got a great lace maxi skirt at Urban Outfitters. Usually I don’t shop there because it’s too expensive but they had a 50% off all sale items and I had to check on what they had because that’s a pretty good deal and I actually found something nice! *___* Now all I need to do is to get in shape so I make all the nice clothes that I got look nice. Hahaha. This is forever a work in progress.
But today we are talking about this toner I got from Clio!

IT’S OCTOBER! Best month ever! Pumpkin everything! All the TV shows! My work schedule makes it almost impossible for me to catch everything while it airs because I’ve been trying to exercise more. But it’s all a work a progress! 🙂 But for now I’m talking about one of my favorite mud masks, Origins Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask To Rescue Problem Skin. And yes that is the whole entire name! It’s a super long name but I really like this mask! I got it from Sephora for $25 but you can also get it from the Origins webshop as well.

These past few days, I’ve been an ADULT and did GROWN-UP THINGS like start a retirement investment fund and go to the opthalmologist wtf who am i. Anyway since I was spending all this money on bettering myself, I also decided to get my hair cut and recolored – I grew my bangs out and failed at trimming them so I stopped doing anything to my hair and just shoved bobby pins into it and hoped it would go away (I’m a Leo, I only know how to either go all out or do nothing at all) (also conclusive evidence of my adulthood).
I have another eyeliner review! Now this one is an interesting one because I had heard a lot about this particular liner from one of my coworkers from Ricky’s. She was telling me how much she loved it that she bought a second one. After that conversation I could feel my need for this liner grow.
It wasn’t until I was about to leave that my store had received stock of this liner and I was excited. But not too excited because it did come at a hefty price $28, and you can also purchase it from Sephora. And now onto the review!
Disclaimer: I purchased this with my own $$$ and this review is all my own opinion.
I was working on this other post but I thought since time is usually of the essence I should write about this first! If you live in NYC; specifically in the Flushing, Queens area, a Skin Food store opened up on Friday 9/5! So right now is their grand opening!
There’s not too much to add so let’s get on with the post!
;______; you know you’re getting old when you start complaining about how quickly time is passing. haha.
This brush has seriously changed my life. I bought it at an Etude House in Singapore last summer, where it was on sale for like THREE SING DOLLARS. I then spent months regretting the fact that I didn’t choose to clear out the store’s stock, and am now seriously considering grabbing another one for more than twice that (lol I say that like it’s a huge amount) on eBay.
It’s been a while hasn’t it? Heh…
Life has been a bit hectic lately and I’m just also prettyy lazy. Just imagine summer vacation. Muahaha. Okay so since Jessica’s post about her rats, I have also gotten a pet! I adopted this adorable dog as a birthday present from a very close friend. But it basically encompasses a few years worth of birthday presents altogether.
But her name is S’mores is she’s a little over 2 years old. She is definitely a welcome thing in my life and we are both two lazy souls who just love laying down together. But she is always super excited in the morning and at night so I can take her on her long walks.
Now that the weather is
melting us down into human sludge so warm, my face produces all the oils 😐 I am forever on the lookout for a sunscreen that doesn’t basically liquefy my face, but in the meantime a good oil-control product is always welcome. You might remember the review I did last year on the Maybelline foundation (god those photos sucked i am sorry) that worked really well for me; I loved it until I dropped my bag, with the compact inside, ON A CARPETED FLOOR and half of it just crumbled to dust and misery and now I refuse to bring it outside.
