Time of Month Box #1

Included in this box was a facial mask, cherry flavored circus sticks, copper bangle, Hikari blush, and Palladio lip gloss.

I’m honestly not sure I’m sold on this one. Its okay. The bracelet is nice enough, and the make-up is okay, but not my favorite type of candy and we’ll see how the mask is. I tried both the lip gloss and the blush, and honestly, the lip  gloss is almost the exact color of my actual lips so it just makes them shiny, and the so-called blusher might better be used as a light bronzer for really pale people. I applied some rather liberally and couldn’t really see it and I’m pretty fair-skinned.

We’ll see how next month’s box is, but I will probably cancel this one. I did opt out of getting actual hygiene products because I don’t use a lot of them and didn’t see the point of paying for way more than I can actually use in a short amount of time.

Ipsy Glam Bag #2

I recently subscribed to Ipsy’s Glam Bag service and today I received my second Glam Bag. The first one I received, I wasn’t completely thrilled, but I figured I would give it a few months and see if it improved. I was not disappointed this time.

First off, the bag itself is super cute!

And the contents are pretty great. I like that it caters your bag contents to your skin tone, eye, and hair color. That means you’re probably mostly going to get things you can actually use. Here’s what came in this month’s bag.

There’s an organic coconut milk-based facial lotion that smells incredible and its so light and easy to work into your skin. I’m going to use it everyday and see how my skin likes it, and if its a yes, then I can see myself ordering a full sized tube on this good stuff.

The Balm Voyage mini eyeshadow is super cute and a great neutral base color.

The mascara is very welcome because even though I got a mascara last month, my main tube (I’ve been a Mary Kay girl for ages) is about gone so now I have new options. Great since I’ve started wearing make-up again in the regular.

I haven’t tried the concealer yet, but I imagine it will come in useful. Same goes for the large make-up brush. I got a smaller angled brush in last month’s bag.

About Me & This Blog

I struggle with mental illness. I’m Bipolar, plus a hefty dose of its accompanying depression. I’m fully med-compliant, and I recently did a year of therapy; my therapist was amazing.

I have 2 betta fish, 5 aquatic snails, some shrimp, 2 German Shepherd x Belgian Malinois pups named Yuba & Tejony, and my cat named Mildred. There’s also a gosling with her duckling friends, aka Gertrude and the Webbies. I live with my mom and her boyfriend, following the end of my previous almost 8 year relationship.

I enjoy all sorts of crafts, but especial yarncraft and jewelry. I sell some of my things I’ve made on my other site, Kittyloaf Designs.

I’m currently rediscovering who I really am. This has manifested in ways such as getting a lazyhawk, really delving into self-care, getting the body mods I’ve wanted for years, making new friends, and exploring kink. It means along with therapy, I feel like I’m finally blooming into the amazing woman I’m supposed to be.

I’m fat. I’m not saying that in a body-shaming way. Its merely an adjective that fits my large body. I’m working with my therapist to get into the right headspace to hopefully want to lose weight (again) and get fit and healthy.

I love comments. Seriously. You don’t need to sign up, and you could even use a fake email if you wanted. Just say something. 🙂
