Your New Favorite Hilariously Grisly Podcast

A few months ago I wrote about Richard Lloyd Parry's People Who Eat Darkness, a book I read over Thanksgiving about the most insane true crime story I've heard of in a long time. I became completely obsessed with this book and told everyone I knew to read it (including you, here's a link to the post I wrote about the book). Coincidentally, a lot more people might be learning about the murder of Lucie Blackman in the near future, because just a few weeks after I wrote about People Who Eat Darkness, it was announced that 20th Century Fox had…

Wear, Watch, Want #39: The 70s Makeup Society Edition

Wear, Watch, Want #39: The 70s Makeup Society Edition

Wear: MAC 217 Blending Brush The MAC 217 blending brush is the holy grail of eyeshadow brushes. There are a million dupes out there, and I have tried quite a few of them. Then I realized that with all the money I'd spent on knockoff 217 brushes I could have bought at least two or three of the real deal. I decided to bite the bullet and spend the $25 (the most I'd ever spent on a single makeup brush to date) to see what all the fuss was about. I bought my brush at Nordstrom, which has the greatest…

Of Course I Got a Korean Sheet Mask Subscription

Of Course I Got a Korean Sheet Mask Subscription

I bought my very first Korean sheet mask this winter, mainly because it promised to turn me into a dragon. A photo posted by Sarah C. (@sarchrz) on Jan 3, 2016 at 5:03pm PST It was pretty stinkin' fun, so when I found out about a monthly subscription service for Korean sheet masks, I was very interested. It's through an online shop called Beauteque, but the subscription itself is called Mask Maven (there's another subscription called BB Bag that's for makeup, skin care, and the like that's slightly pricier). There are different tiers for the Mask Maven subscriptions, ranging from one…

Wear, Watch, Want #38: The 18th Century Russian Kitchen Edition

Wear: Beyoncé's Ankara Dress from Lemonade Once again I am bending my own rules when it comes to what constitutes something I have "Worn" this week. (Remember when the Wear was a bag of ice? Good times.) This is, as you can tell from the image, and the segment title, something Beyoncé wore, and to paraphrase another musical goddess, I can't get it out of my head (and now you can't get THIS out of YOUR head. La la la, la la la la la). Despite Lemonade having an exhaustive list of credits not only of every person involved in the film,…

Updates, Amendments, and News You Can Use

Updates, Amendments, and News You Can Use

There are posts, some from years and years ago, that I wish I could go back and amend. Things change! I learn and grow! For awhile I would periodically do update posts, where I'd revisit products that I'd reviewed, but those have gone by the wayside in recent years. For today though, I'm bringing updates back. There are a few items that I wrote about, both recently and as many as three years ago, that I've wanted to talk a little more about. And now's my chance. So, without any further ado, here are a few amendments to posts from…

Wear, Watch, Want #37: The Fragrant Bejeweled Spy Edition

Wear: Clean Skin and Clean Cashmere Eau de Toilette Rollerballs I've written previously about my love of Clean Skin fragrance (it was three years ago, whoa. Also, I reread the post and I stand by all that I said then, and I'm still obsessed with the fragrance now, so I think that's a pretty good endorsement), so I'll try not to go on and on about how it's the perfect scent for those who don't like to smell too perfumed. It really is what it says on the bottle: Clean Skin. It has this wonderful mixture of light flowery scents…

This Cleanser Is The Balm Dot Com

This Cleanser Is The Balm Dot Com

If you've read this blog even twice, you've probably seen me reference Boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil. It is by far my favorite way to remove my makeup, and no matter what other product I try out, I always end up saying, "NOT AS GOOD." And then I throw it out the window. Despite the fact that I have never found a cleansing oil that comes close to Boscia's in sheer awesomeness, however, I have been tempted by cleansing balms. I know Eve Lom Cleanser is the One To Beat, but it's also insanely pricy, and as established in a…

Wear, Watch, Want #36: The High Seas Canadian Tuxedo Edition

Wear: Lou & Grey Chambray Easy Shirt This shirt is the best. Sometimes I find myself standing in front of my closet staring at my clothes and I have no idea what to pull off a hanger and put on my body, and I end up standing there, staring blankly at different options for far too long. Now that I have this wonderful Lou & Grey shirt in my arsenal, it's become my go-to for when I want something super easy that also looks pulled together. I throw this on with a pair of black jeans and boom, I'm done.…

The Kindle’s Rejects: Five Regretfully Neglected eBooks

The Kindle’s Rejects: Five Regretfully Neglected eBooks

Let's have a little chat about books. I read a lot, but there are books in my beloved Kindle app that it seems are always getting pushed down on the to-be-read list. I buy them because I know I want to read them (they're part of a series I love, or are a book I've re-read or know I'll re-read, for example) but then a book comes in at the library and that takes precedence, or I need to finish a book for my book group, or to be honest, sometimes I'd just rather watch a TV show for a…

Wear, Watch, Want #35: The Spicy Folding Priest Edition

Wear: BRÄDA Folding Laptop Support from Ikea Once again, I'm bending the rules of what constitutes something I've been wearing. But for realsies, guys, this little laptop desk is on my person every single day. It's the best way to work on your laptop in bed or on the couch without burning your thighs and zeroing out your fertility. Basically, if I'm using my laptop, it's probably atop this little folding desk. It's become so essential to my life that I have one at my mom's house too, for when I go visit her and need to use my laptop comfortably.…
