30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 6 and 7

Day 6: What is your zodiac sign and does it fit your personality?

I’m a scorpio, I’m not super familiar with zodiac signs so I have no idea if it matches my personality.

Day 7: Favorite childhood toys?

I used to love my beanie babies. I’d play with them all the time. I also used to love my brother’s little cars and the carpet he had that was like a town. I really don’t have anything else to say, I guess I used to be a big fan of my Barbie and Bratz dolls too. I used to have this like purple barbie castle with an elevator, that thing was the bomb.

Sorry this is so late and so boring but I’ve been busy with a friend that stayed over for a little bit and these questions aren’t super inspiring to me so I have nothing super witty to add.


End-of-Summer Drugstore Makeup Wishlist

So I’ve been compiling a list of makeup that I would like to purchase in the coming weeks and I thought I’d share it with you guys.

  1. Physician’s Formula Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting Pressed Bronzer $14.95. From the reviews I’ve seen this looks like it’s a very light bronzer that’s suitable for my complexion and its hypoallergenic/fragrance free so that’s a plus. I currently don’t have any bronzers so I’d like to give this one a try.bronzer
  2. NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Cake Powder in Taupe/Ash $5.99.  I’ve been wanting to try something new for my eyebrows because I’ve tried some pencils and my eyebrows always come out too dark. I’ve been told that using a brow powder gives a more subtle look so I think that I may have better look with this powder/wax duo.taupe ashe eyebrow
  3. NYX Cosmetics Illuminator in Ritualistic $8.99. I’ve also been wanting to experiment with highlighting and I’ve seen many “beauty gurus” calling this a dupe for the NARS Highlighter in Albatross which seems to have like a cult following among beauty enthusiasts.nyx illuminator 2
  4. Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms in Audacious, Striking, Unapologetic, and Sultry $9.49. I want to try adding some lip colors into my makeup routine but I hate lipgloss with a passion and lipsticks are such a pain to work with, in my opinion, so I think these matte balms are perfect for me. revlon balm collage
  5. Coastal Scents Revealed Palettes 1 and 2 $9.95. These palettes have so many shadows that I think are perfect for me because they are all very neutral and there is a good mix of matte and shimmer. I want to have my eyeshadows all in the same place and out of all the drugstore palettes I’ve researched these seem to be the best in terms of quality and price.revealed paletterevealed 2
  6. Sonia Kashuk Eye Couture Eye Palette – Eye On Neutral 02 $19.99. This palette has all the matte shadows I could ever need and I want a palette with just matte shadows so I think this would be a good palette to try. kashuk matte
  7. Real Techniques Lash-Brow Groomer $6.00I really like the lash comb, it looks like I’m going to be able to comb my lashes exactly how I want them, but the eyebrow brush side doesn’t look like anything special. lash comb
  8. EcoTools Retractable Kabuki Brush $10.99. This is the perfect brush to keep in my back pack for school. I hate having like a free roaming brush that isn’t covered in my backpack so I’m definitely going to get a lot of use out of this one. retractable kabuki

30 Days of Blogging: Day 5

Day 5: What are your favorite comfort foods and why.cheezitdorito

I have many comfort foods, so this is going to be tough. For sweet things I think my favorite comfort food is a pack of oreos (any and all flavors) and a shit ton of milk. I can go through an entire row of oreos on a really bad day. As for saltier snack-type food, I seriously love Cheezits and Doritos. For fuller meal-type food, I like pasta as a comfort food, especially the traditional spaghetti and meatballs. I really don’t know how to explain why these are my favorite comfort foods, I mean do I have to have a reason? I just like these foods that’s all I really have to say about that.

30 Days of Blogging: Day 3 and 4

So… I got lazy yesterday and didn’t do day 4 but it’s alright because now I get to do two days in one post, how fantastic is that!!! So here it is,

Day 3: Top 5 pet peeves

  1. Sexism/racisim/homophobia etc. nuff saidRageConan
  2. Lack of social awareness. By “social awareness” I mean knowing your the kind people you’re with and how to behave in front of them. For example, I hate it when an acquaintance of mine makes a crude joke or comment in front of a professor. I seriously dislike people that don’t have the self control to hold back thoughts that are not appropriate for every type of social or professional setting.
  3. Horrible table manners. I don’t mean that everyone has to eat like a snob but whenever I see someone using their fingers to scoop their food onto their fork it just rubs me the wrong way. Another example of something I hate to see at the table, when someone wipes their hands on their clothes when there are napkins literally right in front of them on the table, like seriously, are you five years old.Nicki-Minaj-Judging-You-1
  4. Fucking know-it-alls. Don’t get me wrong, I love intelligent people and having intelligent conversations with them but I think there is a time and a place to share that knowledge. Those people that lack the common sense of when it is appropriate to say what seriously annoy me so much.
  5.  PEOPLE WHO ONLY RINSE THEIR HANDS AFTER USING THE FUCKING BATHROOM. Seriously every time I see someone come out of the stall, sprinkle some water on their hands, and  then leave without using soap I just want to die knowing that I’m gonna have to touch the door they just toucheddisgusted

Day 4: Discuss your views on religion

Religion is a very sensitive subject so I will try to tread lightly. Currently, I do not practice any religion, I don’t see a need and I have no faith so it’d be pretty pointless for me to attempt to practice any religion. I think it can be a great thing for some people when they keep to themselves and don’t try to push their beliefs on others. One thing I seriously do not agree with is basing any government policies on religion. Since religion is a subjective thing that every individual chooses for themselves, I don’t think that an entire country full of very diverse individuals should governed by any rules that are influenced by or based on a religion.

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 2

Day 2: Where would you like to be in 10 years?

In ten years I’ll be 29 years old so I’ll hopefully be done with my PhD in some chemistry discipline, I don’t know maybe organic chemistry, and moving on to doing some independent research in a lab that I run. I’m not super sure about the timeline commonly associated with with being able to run your own lab, but I’m going to guess that in ten years my career in research will be well underway. I see myself in a serious relationship with someone, maybe even married. I’d have a female dog of some sort and a small apartment and I’d like to maybe have one kid when I’m 29, adopted or biological, it doesn’t matter. Once I’m rolling in that researcher dough, my wardrobe is going to be fan-fucking-tastic. Lastly, I’d like to have a solid group of friends that I can be completely myself with. Being a military kid, I’ve never lived in one place long enough to really develop a deep relationship with anyone other than my siblings so now that I’m on my own I’m going to be able to develop those more longterm relationships that everyone I talk to seems to rave about. Overall, I’ll be in a good place emotionally, financially, socially, and physically.

30 Day Blogging Challenge

I saw this blogging challenge on Tumblr and I thought I’d give it a try to get used to writing more often.I like the questions for the most part so I think I’ll be able to keep up with it, but anyways, here’s Day 1: Discuss your current relationship.

I’m assuming that this one’s referring to romantic relationships, which makes it kind of irrelevant since I’m super single and #lovingit. I’ve never been involved in a romantic relationship, so I have no idea what it’s like, but I think that I currently don’t have the time, energy, or frankly the desire, to be romantically involved with someone. Eventually I’d like to date and whatnot, but for now I am focusing on my academics and myself. I want to keep learning about myself and the world and molding my personality. I think that having to worry about another person would get in the way of that, and whether that’s selfish or not, I honestly don’t care. I have a limited time on this Earth and I’m not about to waste it worrying about someone else when I’m not even sure about myself just yet. I wholeheartedly care about my family and myself for now and I think that being reserved in my affections is the right choice for me in this stage in my life.

Welcome Message

So this is my first time doing a formal blog so I’m not really sure how to start. I’m gonna try to update twice a week starting now with anything from a review of a product or something that happened to me during that week. For now posts are gonna be pretty random, fair warning to anyone that decides to follow this blog (hAHA what are you doing seriously why). I guess if anyone’s reading this and has a suggestion please comment, I know how to take criticism.
