Two K-Beauty Toners I Love For Stressed Out Skin - and a Moisturizer, Too

February 26, 2018
Happy Monday, Kumquats! I know, i've been quite lax in my postings of late - i haven't been feeling my best, so i've been quietly testing out a couple new products while my skin and I are trying to get back into shape.  The one good thing about testing out products when i'm ill and struggling with autoimmune...

January 23, 2018
Oh, please - this was me yesterday, trying out the new Chanel Les 9 Ombres Palette (notice how my pink eyeshadow matches my pillowcase?) and Charlotte Tilbury lip. Today, you don't even want to know how i look...but you will. Keep reading. Well, it’s finally hit me – whatever this nasty bug that’s been...

What Big Eyes You Have...Friday FoTD! NARS, UD, Tom Ford, Perfume, and More

January 19, 2018
It's come around again, my little Kumquats - Friday!  I like Fridays, because it marks the beginning of the three day stretch when i become inspired to do something with my makeup other than my usual cat-eye and bright red or pink lip. Today, i got pretty complicated - for me, anyway.  I kind of went with fall...

As you may know, if you've been reading, i've...

What's In My Bag? And Easy FoTD for Liver Function Test Day!

January 16, 2018
Today is "What's In My Bag" day for the blogging challenge - which i never would have dared to agree to, say, five years ago - when i never cleaned out my purse - and half the contents would have been dried out Gummi Bears and 8 month-old receipts, a lipstick i haven't worn since 1997, about $50 in pennies, all...

My Special Snowflake Skin - Products I've Tried (The Good, The Bad, The Ugly) Pt 1

January 11, 2018
My skin has been both the bane of my existence, and a source of weird pride to me throughout my life.  Back in my teens and early twenties, it was nothing but trouble; cystic acne, weird sensitivities, hormonal breakouts, oily as a bus window slicked with Jerry-Curl circa 1986. At one point, in my late...

I'm Doing January Girl's 30-Day Blog Challenge Thingy - Because Sisterhood, Yo.

January 5, 2018
So i was perusing some blogs via Reddit, generally falling down the Internet rabbit-hole of beauty bloggers (and there are some weiiiiird things going on out there, let me tell you...), when i ran across January Girl's blog - who, by the way, has some pretty sweet eye-makeup skills - and saw she had cobbled...

Red Lips by Chanel, Green Face by Dr Jart, & Pixie Goop Galore!

January 2, 2018
Happy New Year, my Little Kumquats! I hope everyone had a fabulous time - and that you all showed a bit more restraint than i in the celebration department; the next morning was a little bit unpleasant pour moi, i must say... But thank goodness, that's all over! My skin, however, is still punishing me; i'm a bit...
