Sponsored: Mellowing Out My Face with Cannatera CBD Skincare

Trendy skincare ingredients come and go, but truly great ones (like ginseng, snail, and propolis) stay in my routine forever. Unfortunately, it's been a while since I've found a new contender for favorite ingredient. My skincare ennui was part of the reason I accepted a sponsorship offer from CBD beauty brand Cannatera. Could these weed-adjacent [...]

(Bad) First Impressions: Sunday Riley Auto Correct

This will be quick, much like my time with Sunday Riley's Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream. One week after starting this product, I'm throwing in the towel. Auto Correct is nearly unbearable for me to use, and my experience has made me so churlish that I need to share my reasons why. [...]

2016 Sun Care Megapost: Fighting Wrinkles with After-Sun Skincare

2016 Sun Care Megapost: Fighting Wrinkles with After-Sun Skincare

Yesterday was a hideously beautiful SoCal day, so I dragged the family to the beach for a few hours. Lord Fiddy came home with a vibrant sunburn ("Hey look! I got some color!"). Young Master Fiddy and I were, of course, wearing sunscreen and remained Unburnt. I was, however, sandy and desperate for a shower, so I did [...]

Of Moms and Miracles: A (Somewhat Maudlin) Beautibi Unboxing and Review

If there is an afterlife and it has Internet access, then my mom is about to be either really amused or really annoyed when she finds out it's her fault I'm a skincare fanatic who can't sleep if I don't at least remove my makeup and moisturize every night and cleanse and wear sunscreen in the morning. I [...]

Movie Night with Fiddy, feat. Blackhat, sponsored by Jolse

Movie night? you're thinking. Wha? My tablet is dead. Well, the charging cable is dead, but it amounts to the same thing until a fresh shipment of micro USB cables arrives in the mail. And speaking of fresh shipments, today I schlepped to the post office to pick up a box of Korean skincare products for [...]

Brand Spotlight Megapost: Tosowoong, with First Impression Reviews!

So it looks like I won't be getting much sleep tonight. Sucks for Near Future Me, but guess what? The peace and quiet (and the foreboding drone of Forensic Files in the background) provide the perfect conditions for me to finally open up and share my feelings about my new favorite brand, Tosowoong, and some of the [...]

Bees Hate Me!

Bees Hate Me!

Today I got a glorious parcel in the mail. It contained the final missing piece of my Banila Co. Miss Flower & Mr. Honey collection: the Banila Co. Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Cream. The jar is absolutely spectacular. But of course it's what's on the inside that counts. What's on the inside is a [...]
