We’ve Moved!

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 😀 😀

Black Phoenix Trading Post Hair Gloss Review


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!

Review: Goodal Phytoshrink Andiroba Seed Pore Toner

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!

Review: Origins Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask

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.

Haircut!


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).
