#GRWM chit chat and a ColourPop first impression!


Man oh man do I have a lot to say! How is it that everytime I go to film a little mini video that will be "really quick" it turns into over an hour of me flappin' my trap! Don't worry, I've edited it down to a reasonable (ha!) length....



Welcome to my first “Get Ready With Me” chit chat video!

Today I wanted to share with you my first impressions on ColourPop’s shadows and pressed pigments while having a little chit chat.

A whole bunch of chit chat and a mini haul


Hey Dudes! This video turned out to be substantially longer than I had anticipated. What I thought would be a quick 5 minute run through of some cheap-y cosmetics I picked up at Beauty Island turned into a 20 minute chit chat session. Whoops! Let me know what you think about having longer videos like this one. I doubt I'll do it very often, but I think it's kind of fun! 

If you have any questions, comments, or just want to chit chat with me in real time, hit me up on any of my social platforms! I'm on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and of course you can leave comments on my YouTube channel too! I love hearing from you, it totally makes my day!

sunday inspiration #15 - monochrome


Happy Sunday Dudes! Today's Sunday inspiration is monochrome, which I am super stoked on. Totally reminds me of the 60's, one of my all time favorite decades. What's inspiring you this week? Don't forget to check out what is inspiring my blogger bff Gina this week over at Tulle and Combat Boots! 

I grabbed all these images from pinterest. Generally I loathe not properly sourcing images, but I'm just so pooped tonight! I will do my best to go back later this week and find the proper sources. In the meantime you can check them all out on my pinterest account :)

Petit Vour: vegan & cruelty free beauty


I received my second Petit Vour very soon after the first since I subscribed out of cycle, what a happy surprise! This month's box was curated by Logical Harmony, an amazing web resource for cruelty free and vegan beauty.

As a newbie video blogger I'm still figuring everything out. Unfortunately I had an issue with the sound in this video and lost a little bit of footage. I did my best to realign the sound, but I hope you all are forgiving if it's still a smidge off. I'm learning every step of the way!

On to the box!

LVX 5 Free Nail Laquer - Lolli | $16
Modern Minerals Mineral Eye Shadow - Cherish | $12.50

Sunday Inspiration #13 - cobalt


Happy Sunday Dudes! Today I want to just lay around the house and recover from last night's remix release party for my band Technophobia at Black Cat. We played with two SUPER RAD bands: Curse from Baltimore and Void Vision from Philadelphia. They were amazing and I am so pleased that they were able to join us for our big event. You can listen to the remixes streaming HERE!

Anyway, on to some sunday inspiration! This weeks hue is cobalt. I love this rich color and was very taken by the combination of cobalt and rusty reds and browns. I very unfortunately was unable to properly source all these images, but was so taken by them I couldn't not share. If you happen to know the original sources for them please do let me know!


So what is inspiring you this week? Don't forget to check out what is inspiring my blogger bff G this week on Tulle and Combat Boots!
