The Cool List: April 22, 2016

S’well bottles I bought my first S’well bottle a little over a year ago and bought my second a month ago. I love these beautiful, overpriced bottles and take them everywhere. I can easily throw my 19oz size into a purse while I’m running errands, playing kickball, or take them into meetings at work. In addition to keeping colds cold for twenty-four hours and hots hot for twelve, it’s stainless...

VIB Haul

  The VIB sale gets me EVERY.DAMN.TIME. You know when you walk out of Sephora with the big bag, you should probably retire your credit card for a little while. I spent way more than I intended to and that was after I pulled about $50 worth of stuff out of my basket while in line to check out. I also went to the Sephora website every day until the sale...

Da fuq is Nettle Tea?!

Who the fuck makes Nettle-Mint tea?

Why am I...

The Cool List: April 13, 2016

This mask isn’t like that. In fact, it’s the complete opposite. It’s gel-like, cooling and always leaves my face feeling well moisturized and refreshed. I would drape my entire body...

The Birth Control Monologues

The ways to refer to your female reproductive organs are endless: pussy, vagina, cunt, clam, cooter; unfortunately the ways to protect your baby-maker aren’t. Condoms, the pill, intrauterine devices, spermicide, dental dams… none of them are foolproof and all of them present their own set of issues**. Thank “The Man” again ladies because, more often than not, the burden of having pregnancy- and STD-free sex lies with us. I mean,...

Trash Talkin’

Interested in the products I’ve used up lately? Grossed out that I saved all of this trash just to write this post? Either way, enjoy these mini reviews! Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm ($29.00 at Sephora) This is the Cadillac of makeup removers. The Jay Z to my Beyoncé. In 2013, when my skin decided to betray me, I realized that my one-step cleansing routine wasn’t removing all...
