Walmart Beauty Box: Fall 2014

Walmart Beauty Box - Fall 2014

When I saw that Walmart was offering a beauty box–and for only $5!–I knew I had to purchase it. I’ve been fairly pleased with Target Beauty Bags in the past, so I was hoping this would offer a similar experience. My expectations were pretty low, as I’ll admit I was expecting lots of store brand items and foils. When the …

I’m a loner, Dottie. A rebel.

Dottie DooLittle: Barred Plymouth Rock

This morning, as I stood in the middle of the run, doing chores and having a conversation with a hen, I realized that I may have lost my mind… Last spring, I had this brilliant idea to get some pet ducks. I say pets because, unlike some others, I can’t bring myself to eat anything that I’ve given a name. …

Birchbox: September 2014

Birchbox September 2014

Last month’s box was a complete miss for me (and I chose it!), so I had my fingers crossed this month would be better. Pick Your Sample happened once again, and though I contemplated not making a choice, I ended up picking something at the last minute. I wasn’t overwhelmed by the items that were given as choices this month, …

Review: PureSol Konjac Facial Sponge

PureSol Konjac Facial Sponge

This is the second Konjac sponge I’ve reviewed recently, but I’ve really enjoyed using them. These sponges are such a great alternative to harsher products and are great for any skin type, but especially if you have sensitive or dry skin. I love that these sponges are 100% natural and biodegradable. They provide many benefits, including: improving overall skin texture …

Review: Instanatural Cleansing Oil & Rose Hip Seed Oil

Instanatural Cleansing Oil & Rose Hip Seed Oil

My facial cleansing and moisturizing routine would probably surprise a lot of people. It can include up to twelve steps, depending upon how much time I have and what I’m hoping to achieve. The first step in my process, which is based upon a Korean routine, is using a cleansing oil. This is a product, however, that I was lacking. Instead, …

Review: Makeup by One Direction

Makeup by One Direction

In the late 90s and early 2000s, I was one of those girls that bought into the whole boyband scene. I was completely obsessed with the music, the merchandise, and Lance Bass’ terrible dance moves. Aside from cds and concert tickets, I spent my money on a wide assortment of totally ridiculous things, from magazines and posters to the more …

The Lust List: Dresses

the lust list: dresses

In the past year, I’ve been working to figure out what my personal style is. While jeans and t-shirts are comfortable, I’m getting older and have started to pay a little more attention to fashion. As a plus-sized woman, that’s sometimes difficult. While there are definitely more designers and companies catering to people of larger sizes, it’s still very difficult …

There was also the option to choose a specially curated box, which was a collaboration with The Everygirl.
