The Holly Jolly TAG | Blogmas Day 10

December 10, 2017

I'm sitting down to write this with a cinnamon coffee, Strange Things on the tv and Holly Jolly Christmas playing in my head. Every time I think of this tag that song pops into my head.

Christmas Rants | Blogmas Day 8

December 8, 2017

The Christmas TAG | Blogmas Day 4

December 4, 2017

This tag was actually my first Blomas post back in 2015! I didn't get to finish Blogmas that year or last year.

And I enjoy Christmas even more than I did then!

My Favorite Horror Games

October 28, 2017

I never have been one for haunted houses or scare experiences. They just don't get me. They can't hurt you. They just jump out at you. The danger isn't real and the jump scares are easy to spot. 

Horror games on the other hand, it feels real. If you mess up you'll kill the character. It has a sense of realness. The adrenaline pumps like crazy. They might chase you in a haunted house but they aren't going to hurt you when they catch you. In a game, you're dead if you get caught.

My Beauty Product Wish List 2 | ft Too Faced, Tarte, NYX, ABH, MAC, Nars, Kat Von D, & More!

September 9, 2017

Back in February of this year I posted My Beauty Product wish list. That post was my 100th post! I can't believe this is my 210th blog post and my 126th post of 2017!

In that post I shared with you all some of the products I was dying to get my hands on. I only crossed off one of the products on that list. Real Techniques 6 piece sponge set. 

I also made a list of Lippies I am drying to try! This was a huge list of lippies I don't need but I desperately want. I haven't crossed anything off of that one yet. 

Even though I only crossed off one item of one list that doesn't stop my list from growing. I've nearly doubled it since the last post. So I thought I'd post a part 2 with all the new products I'm lusting after before the list gets too big.
