Makeup by Muse | Hagrid’s Pumpkin Patch

This was a makeup look that I was hoping to get up during October. But I didn’t do much of anything during October. So, here we are at the start of November with a pumpkin patch eye tutorial–Hargrid’s Pumpkin Patch, to be specific. It’s still fall… we can still do pumpkin things right? Who doesn’t love pumpkins?
And, I mean, who really doesn’t love Hagrid? … More Makeup by Muse | Hagrid’s Pumpkin Patch

Hit or Miss | Almay One Coat MEGA VOLUME Mascara

It’s been a pretty long time since my last post, and sadly today’s post isn’t anything remotely book related. On the bright side, it’s a beauty review! YAY! First off, thank you to Influenster and Almay for giving me the chance to test this product for review purposes. Secondly, I have a love/hate relationship with mascara. I usually like most mascaras that I’ve tried for a day or so, mostly when they’re brand new and the product is fresh and the tube is full. But, my lashes are usually over whatever mascara I’m using after a dozen or so uses and they go back to being small and unnoticeable. I’m the type of person who loves it when my lashes scream at people for attention. But not many mascaras keep my lashes shouting with joy for very long. My lashes take after me: they’re pretty shy, are agonizingly quiet, and they, like me, need A LOT of poking and prodding to induce even the smallest amount of remotely-attention-seeking noise. Needless to say, loud lashes are hard for me to come by unless I’m 100% faking it and gluing them to my face. Enter new mascara. … More Hit or Miss | Almay One Coat MEGA VOLUME Mascara

First Impressions | Storybook Cosmetics

There are many things I love in life. Coffee, sweaters, slaying my enemies—just kidding. My only enemy is waking up at 5:00 am, and I’ve yet to thwart it. As you may or may not know, two things that bring me all kinds of happiness in life are sparkles and nerdy things, usually in the form of makeup and books. Lucky for me, there are people out there who want to make all of my sparkly-nerdy dreams come true. Three of those people are Erin, Mandy, and Missy Maynard, creators of Storybook Cosmetics. Makeup and books combined—what more could a girl ask for? Well, maybe a cupcake. Cupcakes never go astray. … More First Impressions | Storybook Cosmetics
