Anti-Haul April 2017

A lot of people do “Anti-Hauls” on Youtube. If you aren’t familiar with these, these are videos where people talk about what they aren’t buying. With so many launches, I love the premise of this. It gives us a reason to talk about what’s new without actually participating in this makeup economy of “BUT THIS LIMITED EDITION THING!”. Here’s my version, sans video. Here’s my additional comments¹. 

It’s prime “Summer Collection” time so I have a lot of new things to discuss. Too many new things to discuss!

Here’s some things that have launched or will be launching soon… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Spring 2017 Update – Where Y’At?

Me over the past few weeks: *insert numerous expletives*

Also me: I’m still here.

If you’ve stopped by EauMG recently, you probably received a weird message instead of my usual frivolous fragrant content. For those that don’t follow my ramblings on social media, here’s a quick overview: the server that EauMG was on was hacked.

Mona di Orio Myrrh Casati

My eyes made contact with the big eyes in the painting of my aunt as a toddler. I glanced down at the dogwood painted glass hurricane lamp that my grandmother absolutely despised, a gift from her mother-in-law.

EauMG’s March 2017 Favorites

I don’t want to be one of those boring people that complain about the weather, but I’m going to be one of those boring people. The weather in March was so frustrating. We had an icestorm. The disgusting, tar-soaked ice piles lingered for weeks. It was cold and disgusting. All I wanted was spring and it couldn’t be found.

This was OK, because I needed to focus on finals. I wrapped up another term. Like weather, I know people get sick of hearing this too: Time flies… Continue reading | 4 Comments
