    go to gurus

    I’ve been on a makeup buying rager lately. I think it’s a side effect of my weight loss because maybe I’m seeing more results that I actually realize. But, I also have to point a finger at YouTube. Watching beauty videos have been part of my nightly routine for almost 10 years now. Over the years, the faces on my screen may have changed, but the love of makeup is the same. Since I’m not inconsiderate and would love it if you joined me on my makeup buying joyride, I’m sharing my go-to dealers gurus with you today. That’s what makeup junkies do, right? #friendshelpingfriends So without further adieu… I’ve…

    thursday thoughts: they’re all over the place.

    It’s Thursday and I have thoughts. DEMI LOVATO the fact that I don’t look or sound remotely like her is rude, annoying and frankly, a little insulting. she’s just so pretty, her voice is amazing, she’s dated Wilmer Valderrama AND a Jonas brother (not the one I would pick, but either way). I would take a week of being Demi’s doppelganger. Just long enough to do a duet with Harry. And maybe see Nick Jonas naked. THE FOWLER SISTERS Elle and Blair, where did you go? Elle was one of the first YouTubers I got invested in. I found Blair kind of annoying, honestly. Either way, they’ve been MIA from the…

    RANT & RAMBLE: …maybe it’s me

    When I’m at work I eat lunch by myself. It sounds sad, but I wouldn’t have it any other way, honestly. Because, people. I go in to one of our conference rooms, close the door and for the next half hour I veg out with my beloved Youtube videos. Yesterday, I was clicking around and saw a video from one of the Youtubers I watch all the time. Naturally, I clicked it. It was going to be fun! We’re like best friends who have never met and probably never will. Can’t wait. The video in question was one where she was announcing that she had a product that we, her…

    thoughts from a youtube addict

    Lately I’ve been toying with the idea of making Youtube videos. By toying, I mean that I’ve thought about it, remembered that I hate how my voice sounds on camera, realized I’d have to edit the videos, and then ultimately decided against it. Added to that is the fact that I’m not a consistent blogger so I probably wouldn’t be a consistent vlogger and my life is so painfully boring I wouldn’t want to watch it – it’s bad enough that I have to live it. All of this being said, there are people who do actually keep up with making videos, boring life and all. I’ll admit, I looove watching them.…

    perfect is perfection!

    So, One Direction released a music video for their newest single, “Perfect” yesterday. And it is… perfect. except not as perfect as “Night Changes“. Take a look and then come back so that we could analyze it to death. Did you really think I’d have nothing to say about it? First, can I say that I’m liking that Papa Lou is going old school with his hair these days? It reminds me of when they first started and I was convinced I’d never be interested in another boyband. yea,ok. Speaking of hair, Harry needs to cut his. Or at least wash it. At the very least use some dry shampoo, boo boo. I’ll take…

    Mindy, Etsy and Taylor Swift

    How come during the week Friday seems like it will never get here and then it comes and it’s like “woah, Friday already?” Maybe its just me. My work schedule sucks. Anyway, I haven’t done a Friday Five Favorites whatever in a while so I figured, even though nothing I have to say goes with each other, why not? I’ll make it work. Guys, it’s September. You know what that means? MINDY COMES BACK THIS MONTH! And Hulu is now offering a no commercial option. All is right with the world. Also, full disclosure, I chose this picture because I love Mindy’s lipstick color. Now that that’s out in the open… before…

    the art of the music video

    Being a child of the 90’s, I have a special place in my heart for music videos. They were a big deal back in the day, just ask Carson Daly. Remember Pop Up Video on VH1 and Making the Video on MTV? Those were my jams. Nothing better on a Saturday than reading all about who was coming to Melissa Ethridge’s window. It was a simpler time. Since I am such an aficionado of these mini masterpieces, this week’s Friday Five Favorites (oh, whatever.) is going to be dedicated to my favorite music videos. spoiler alert: there will probably be more than five. you’ve been warned. So in no particular order… One Sweet…

    swooniest swoonfest

    One Direction released their video for Night Changes today and it.is.perfect. I can’t even think of what else to say. It is the cutest, most wonderful, swooniest swoonfest ever. I’m 27 years old. I should not be sitting here with the goofiest smile on my face and my heart exploding all over the place. But I am. thanks a lot, one direction. I wonder how much inspiration they pulled from fanfics for this… Hmmm.

    A Tieks Critique

    I have horrible feet. They’re super wide, really flat and they stick out. My ankles, knees and shins only add to the problem. They hurt constantly (not chronically though, thank goodness), I can’t walk for more than 10 minutes without them hurting, and they have a hate/hate relationship with shoes. No matter how many glowing recommendations I get for flats, heels, sandals or sneakers, my feet prove them wrong. Everything rubs, pinches and doesn’t support. I know it may sound like I’m picky or a complainer but, as with any other type of pain or bodily complaint, I know what I feel and it sucks. Enter Youtube. I was watching…
