latest hauls

“You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because if your words.”



Good morning all! In case you all don’t know yet, my absolute favorite book of all time is The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. It’s got magic, interesting plot twists, such lovely writing and a love story aspect that is so genuine and beautiful. I’ve been searching for a hardback copy of it since I read it last year and I’m so, so happy to have found one online! So this is the #lastbookibought tag tagged by @insyiirxh, thank you! 😊❤️📚

     My latest hauls came in and I’m so excited!!! I totally forgot some of the things I ordered and they came as a such a huge surprise. Even a few things I did purchase surprised me with surprise stuff inside! My special edition volume 7 had a Tetsu card inside fall out on me when I opened the book. And I totally forgot my glass which ended up being one of my favourite things * v * I will never drink out of it, but it’s so lovely!!!

Request:  Hi there, finally got the time to gather my thoughts into words and it goes kinda like this: imagine helping Leonard Christmas shopping for Lisa. Thanks for listening and please keep delighting us with your stories

“Remind me,” the low drawl came from beside you, reminding you, not for the first time, of Leonard’s disapproval of this plan. “Why must I buy her something?”

“Because,” you start with a good natured roll of your eyes as you turn to him, “this shows you care.”

“No, this shows that I was forced to go to a department store,” Leonard counters, giving you a pointed look. “We both know I could get her something better…”

“Yes, you could steal something,” you reply in a hushed voice. “But what does that say? ‘Hi sis, I decided to put this one thing aside from my latest haul, thought you might like it? I know you can’t actually wear it or anything because, well, it’s stolen, but hey, who cares?’”

Between the look of disbelief thrown your way and the slightest of twitches on his lips, it was easy to tell you hadn’t succeeded at getting your point across so much as amusing the man. Yet somehow, with a conceding nod, he gave in.

“Jewellery?” he asks with a raised eyebrow, curious as to exactly what you had planned.

“I was thinking something gold…”

My latest haul arrived last month and I can finally start putting together my keychain/strap display! (I think my bias is showing - guess who my five favs are. 🙈)

HUGE shoutout to @tigersplaygrnd​ for being the absolute best proxy ever: I had an entire wishlist full of rarities that I was SURE would take me over a year to find and she goes and tracks them all down in one go. I will never stop being amazed by what she does, so thank you thank you thank you!

Latest haul

I don’t post pictures because it’s too much work and knowing me, I’d forget to get rid of the exif data or whatever the fuck it is. Anyways, I had a freaking amazing ass haul today! I’m thinking I might need to take a break because I think I might be getting addicted. If you want names of stores or tips, you’ll have to dm me.

Store 1
So, I managed to get 2 fans - a pedestal fan and one that goes in the window. Super excited. I live on the top floor so it gets hot up here. Also got the game cards against humanity and a few other health related items.

Store 2
Got some pet food. Whenever I’m out of town near a pet store, I try to get some just in case they run low and I CAN’T lift for some reason.

Store 3
Lifted a z-palette and a bunch of shadows by nyx, buxom, and urban decay. Some buxom lippies too. I’m going to create my own sunset themed palette and it’s going to be better than the Natasha Denona one, since I can’t lift it 🙁

Store 4
Bunch of cute tribal style jewelry. A penguin lunch box for a gift. Cute comfy cold weather socks for a gift a cute tea infuser bottle and some teas from Cambodia. Junk food.

Store 5
Jewelry. Cute sandals. A kimono style wrap. And a new lifting bag, since my current one is big and black and that’s sus.

Store 6
It cosmetics CC cream since it’s getting hot out. Aloe Vera gel. More eye shadows.

Store 7
Another pair of comfy ass shorts (See prev post) and a cute comfy pair of “cooling” workout Capri leggings. Most everything was tagged but this was what I wanted so it’s all good!

Store 8
Hair color developer and 2 tubes of color. Squeeze bottle hair dying kit.

Estimated savings: $1500 - $1700

It doesn’t seem like I got that much.

How to fix dry lips

I’m someone who has suffered dry lips for as long as I can remember and boy have they gotten bad. Some days I would wake up with dry, cracked, peeling and sometimes even bleeding lips, and no matter how many diet changes I made, how much water I drank nothing really helped, but after my years of beauty blogging I’ve come across a few amazing products and tips to help  get rid of dry lips and keep them in tip top condition…

Some of my favourite lip care products which include: *Nuxe Reve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm, Manuka Honey, Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask, *Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid, *Suvana Paw Paw & Honey Balm, *Rosehip Plus Roll On Oil

The girls finally take their screaming session towards the other end of the apartment and Thalia is able to concentrate on her work.

She manages to make a few calls to some of the local restaurants to see if they’d like her to come over and review a few of their latest dishes. She completes a few articles on her latest food stall hauls and uploads them to her blog.

It’s quite a productive day for her!

I don’t know what it is about Riverdale that leads too me writing these little ficlets, but here I am. Again. Ah well. Maybe someone will enjoy it.

Written after episode 10, “The Lost Weekend”. Actually, I only had time to watch half the episode before rushing off to work, so sorry if it doesn’t quite fit. I just couldn’t stop wondering how the tradition of Archie and Jughead going out to the theatre became a thing, and, well, fic happened.

I’m still stubbornly reading Jughead as an aroace, albeit a very confused one currently. I don’t think it really comes up in this, but just…fair warning if it’s not your cup of tea?

Also, I did tag this as “qp jarchie” because I think it’s easy to read it that way, but I have to admit I don’t actively ship it. If people would like me to remove it from the tag, please let me know.

Whew. Anyway, onto the story, which is under the cut. (It got a little longer than I was originally expecting.) (Edited 18/4 to fix some verb tense errors.)

How to create Dewy Skin

Gone are the days of heavily matte skin instead gorgeous, glowy skin is the ultimate focus and thanks to this trend (which is definitely here to stay) there are hundreds of products on the market that can give you gorgeous Victoria Secret skin in a heartbeat. Those with oily skin, don’t have to fret just yet, trust me, you can still rock the luminous look.

The Skincare: If your skin is super lackluster try a whole skincare line dedicated to giving you a healthy glow, otherwise a serum, which is designed to brighten your skin will suffice.

The Prep: Don’t use a moisturiser, instead just use a small amount of facial serum to prep your skin. Not only will makeup last longer, but your skin will also look fresher. Follow with an illuminating primer that will reflect light to set the perfect base for your makeup.

4.29 - As promised, I’d post my latest haul. I’ve been eyeing those Zebra Mildliners ever since I’ve seen them in studyblr. I thought I was a goner bc I haven’t found any resellers in my country.. or so I thought. It would take months if I ordered online. Anyway, those mildliners got me to craving to buy again and atlas! I found one that sells stationery stuff! After much contemplating what set to buy, I bought the cool set, but as soon as I got them, it made me want to buy the pastel set too! And since I was also into buying brush pens, I also ordered three! Then, 2-3 days later, photos of the warm set of mildliners made me want them also! Now I’m currently waiting for the shop to restock the warm set, and I’m officially broke. But you know what? THIS IS THE BEST INVESTMENT I EVER HAD. So don’t think twice on buying those mildliners!! 

Also, thanks studyfulltime’s photo bc she introduced me to EMBARK. I REALLY LOVE THEIR PHOTOGRAPHS. I COULD CRY
