My Favorite Things: September 2015

Welcome to a very special round of My Favorite Things, a monthly blog linkup for all the things you love! This month’s linkup is guest hosted by one of our regular participants, Tara! Thank you very much for helping out while Eirene and I sort our lives. Head to her host entry to submit your faves!

Here are my faves for the last month! It’s not a long list because I was still on the Mad Men train (which I already finished!) and I had a lot on my plate this month. Read more…

Wantable Makeup Box Review: August 2015

Another quick review before the month closes out! I received this month’s Wantable makeup package promptly in the beginning of August, however I wasn’t able to write this entry until now because of other life things. You know how it is.

  1. Lashem Color Strokes Brow Tint and Lift in Raven

What I Wore: Skirts and Hats

I woke up one day and decided I didn’t like pants. Don’t really know why, I guess I’m getting bored of my usual look? It’s also really uncomfortable to have skintight jeans when it’s so hot out.

Meet Beebo the Marimo

My friend Mara gave me a pet marimo for my birthday last month! <3 I told her I was thinking of getting one since they look so cute and are very easy to take care of. Imagine my surprise when I received a package after coming home from Vegas. I knew exactly who it was from. Thank you so much, my dear waifu! (´ε` )♡

Marimo are moss balls native to Japan and parts of Europe. Keeping a marimo is said to bring good luck, but their population in nature has been dwindling because of this. Read more…
