I went nuts buying clothes so I tried to restrict myself on the beauty purchases. I ran out of cleanser so I bought Glyderm Gentle Cleanser and Lalun Naturals Winter Rose Oil Cleanser. So far, I’m loving both. Being that it’s colder, I don’t air dry my hair as often because I feel like I’ll freeze to death. I bought Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Thermal Setting Spritz. I love how it smells and leaves my hair feeling… Continue reading
Fruits of the Tree of Knowledge (formally known as “What Katie Did on Friday Night”) by 4160 Tuesdays is, as you’d expect from its glorious title, is a fruity fragrance.
The opening is sharp and zesty with all the citruses. This adds a sparkling, effervescent quality to the perfume. It’s seriously ALL OF THE CITRUS.

I have four nephews and once niece and another nephew on the way. I was told to use the word “nibling”, which… Continue reading | 8 Comments
Lately I’ve been taking a short break from my usual roses and white florals and wearing chypres. The deal is that I don’t own many chypres so this makes me dig through my samples.

The Lipstick League – week of 11.7.16
Question of the Week: Fess up, what did you buy at the Sephora VIB sales?
EauMG’s Answer: Well, if I weren’t broke from having to pay for grad school, I would be participating. And if I already didn’t have a ton of stuff. I was initially planning on buying Tom Ford Orchid Soleil and Mugler Angel Muse. I was also planning on buying staples like Clarisonic Sensitive Brush Heads, some Drunken Elephant skincare and AmorePacific Cushion
