Good morning class, welcome to Male Gaze 101. Please take your seats and turn to page 52.
I have so many questions when it comes to Jessica Rabbit, like how does she remain upright? And why is she not actually a rabbit? Her husband, Roger Rabbit, is a full rabbit, ears and all. Are we meant to understand that a rabbit married a human woman, and she took his surname of “Rabbit”? But alas, these are questions for another day. Let’s set aside our critical lens for a moment and focus instead on how to transform into one of the sexiest and most absurd animated characters that ever lived: Jessica Rabbit. Continue Reading →
Being more productive means you’ll get more done and make better use of your time. Businesses are hyper-focused on productivity, and our culture is obsessed with cramming more and more tasks into each day. Here are a few things you can do to improve your productivity without totally burning yourself out. Continue Reading →
We need to talk. Specifically about the new Huda Beauty Neon Palettes. Even more specifically about the orange palette, because I am SHOOK. Look at this colour payoff!!! But I’m getting ahead of myself. Continue Reading →
I’d never been to a horse racing event before, so when a friend suggested we attend the 160th Annual Queen’s Plate this weekend, I was excited to dress for what I regarded to be, essentially, a costume party. A costume party with fancy clothes, fancy hats, and the horses in the back. (Yes, I had to sneak that in there somewhere.)
And you know I can’t resist a theme. Continue Reading →
As promised, here’s the sparkly, iridescent makeup I wore on Pride weekend to match my iridescent Pride outfit. I absolutely loved how this makeup turned out! It’s one of the simpler creative makeup looks I’ve done recently, but it went with my Pride outfit perfectly and I was feeling the fantasy all day long.
This comes as a surprise to absolutely no one at this point, but I’m a big fan of glitter. But with great power comes great responsibility, and I’ve learned some things about using glitter responsibly that I’d like to pass along to you. Continue Reading →
It turns out I’m too shy and embarrassed to pose for fashion photos amid a big crowd of people, so here are some photos of my look from today’s Pride parade…that I took at home. Continue Reading →
Hiiiiiii, welcome to my first full costume reveal of the year: a Hermione Granger cosplay! I’ve been sitting on this secret for months, so I’m thrilled to finally be able to share it with you. (That’s why my hair’s so big – it’s full of secrets.) Continue Reading →
Me again, back on #SkincareQuest2019. This time, reviewing Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask and Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer. If you’ve been considering trying either of these products yourself, keep on reading. Continue Reading →
Anyone else have a never-ending to-do list? Whether you’re single and living alone or are caring for a family, the 24 hours in a day seem to be stretched thinner and thinner. Continue Reading →
If you’ve been a longtime reader of my blog, you might remember my last lash haul from back in December of 2015. I bought 5 pairs from House of Lashes, and have been wearing them for costumes, cosplays, and special occasions (sometimes cut up, sometimes whole) ever since. Since I don’t wear lashes on a daily basis, they last me a long time. And lashes last even longer if you invest in better quality ones, and take good care of them.
(Don’t put mascara on them and make them all clumpy! Remove the glue from the strip at the end of the night! Be gentle putting them on and taking them off! Don’t pull and bend them all out of shape! Store them properly so they stay protected!!!)
That’s why I haven’t needed to buy new lashes for almost FOUR YEARS. But I finally used them up, so here we are. Continue Reading →
If you thought regular winged liner was hard, welcome to expert mode. As I’ve said before, I enjoy getting creative with makeup, and once the idea to draw a dragon tattoo in liquid liner entered my head, there was no getting rid of it.
I knew it would be a challenge, but I didn’t realize exactly how hard it would be. I guess I temporarily forgot that the dragon “tattoo” would extend to the side of my face, and that my eyeballs can’t really…see there. In short, I almost went cross-eyed doing this, and pushed my peripheral vision to its absolute limits. But nobody said being the mother of drag(ons) was easy. Continue Reading →
I loooove breakfast and breakfast foods, but I hardly ever eat it. Most mornings, I wake up, get ready, and fly out the door as quickly as possible. But if it’s a weekend or a day I’m working from home, I love spending a few minutes putting together a beautiful (and super delicious) breakfast to start the day.
While I’m not strictly vegan (or strictly anything), I do try to ensure the majority of my meals are plant-based. Here are a few of my go-to quick and easy breakfast options. Continue Reading →
In today’s instalment of “Sara tests things from the internet”, I went to the dark side…literally. I had to know if charcoal powder toothpaste really worked for teeth whitening. In short, the answer is kind of – but it’s really annoying. Here’s the good, the bad, and the messy. Continue Reading →
I called this makeup look “iridescent unicorn drag makeup” because I didn’t really know what to call it, but welcome to my Polly Pocket/Care Bears/Sky Dancer/pastel glitter butterfly fantasy. AKA Taylor Swift’s new #aesthetic.
While I don’t need an excuse to attach rhinestones, glitter, and lashes to my face, in this case I happen to have one. Continue Reading →
A couple of weeks ago, Sephora had their semi-annual VIB event, which meant Beauty Insiders got 10% off their total purchase, VIBs got 15% off, and VIB Rouges got 20% off their purchase. I always try to wait for this sale to stock up on products I’ve run low on and need to repurchase. Plus it’s a good excuse to splurge on that luxury beauty item you’ve been eyeing. “But it’s discounted now! I’d be stupid not to buy it!!”
Since I’m a deeply curious person who always wants to know what other people grabbed during this sale, here’s what I picked up. Continue Reading →
