I believe that makeup is meant to be played with. There aren't rules here. If a product doesn't work for me a certain way, I try using it for something else. For example, the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous was a very exciting purchase for me because I had heard so many good things about this product. However, I was disappointed when I tried it on because it just wasn't pigmented enough for me and looked odd and glossy on my lips. Not my best look. But then I came up with an alternate use for it. Now I love it.

I had an obsession with buying dressy dresses. Expensive, dressy dresses. Until one day I realized that I have so many of them and barely enough places to wear them to. If you have friends like mine, you'd know how the only places you go out to are eating places that don't require you to throw on those heels and that snazzy dress. Putting on some red lipstick is as fancy as it gets.
So now, I like to buy clothes that can easily be dressed up or dressed down.

I've been down with all sorts of illnesses lately. It sucks but I've just been chillin' at home, skipping college. Well, not really. I still have loads of work to do, articles to write, exams to study for. I've recently been OBSESSED with Twitter. It's incredibly fun to read about irrelevant details of people's lives. No, it really is. Link me to your twitter handle, if you're on it too.
Anyway, here's what I've been up to since my last Instagram post.

So do you remember how sometime in the beginning of this year I had done a post called My 2014 Realistic Makeup Wishlist? Well, a month ago, I went ahead and got myself one of the products mentioned in there. It was a bit of a tough purchase to make because I was basically about to give away my money to get myself some liquid eyeliner that was going to dry up in a few months anyway. But I love eyeliner and wear it all the time. So I finally bit the bullet and bought the L'oreal Super Liner Instant Impact Felt Liner. My idea was that if it could give me even a few months of really good eyeliner days, it would be worth the seven hundred or whatever bucks I pay for it.

Do you have moments in your life when you feel like absolute poo? Well, I have them a lot. I've been meaning to put up a product review on here for a while now but haven't gotten around to doing it. I don't even know why. Life has been too overwhelming, yet underwhelming at the same time.
I never really write about anything personal on here, but through the years my blog has started to become a better representation of who I really am. And since I was having one of my often recurring shitty days, I decided to write about it on my internet diary instead of in the book lying somewhere in the back of my cupboard. I don't even know if anyone is going to end up reading this. But if you are, I hope I don't bore you too much.

Summer is officially here. Or, well, it has been for a while. But I only really spent a good amount of time outside today and OHMYGOD it is hot. A few hours outside and I was a sweaty mess by the time I got home. So I thought I'd put together a post sharing a few of my tips on how to look and feel your best while it is sweltering outside. This probably isn't for you if you're one of the lucky few who don't have to travel by local trains/sit through long college lectures/walk around unsheltered under the sun.
Also, this isn't about protecting yourself from the intense heat. Everyone knows sunscreen is great. And I'm no skin expert. These are my tips on how to look a little less disgusting during this crappy season.

I've been on the hunt for the perfect sunscreen for a while now. I used the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer for ages, but never fell in love with it (always found it a little too greasy), I got to try out the Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defence and LOVED it, but it was too expensive to purchase. Then I tried out the La Roche Posay Anthelios XL and I liked that, too, despite it being just a tad bit greasy and having a funny scent. But my hunt for the perfect sunscreen hadn't ended.
Until I came across this little guy.
