Blogging, writing, YouTube(?)-ing are all very solo activities.
YouTubers have learned to branch out and form collaborations with each other, torturously forcing themselves to change out of their week-old pj’s and suffering through conversation with a warm-skinned, breathing human.
But! They found a solution! A way to collaborate without ever having to be in the same room: the _____ Does My Voiceover tag.
Which, in essence, is kinda sad because Mechanical Ninjineer is a really cool person and may even be my twin, so having real-life conversation with that certain human wouldn’t have been so bad.

I had no idea what I was getting before slicing open a mysterious black box that arrived earlier that week.
My reaction says it all.
Watch to be entertained and see how I wear green mascara and handle the overwhelming flood of emotions that came with it.

It’s Mother’s Day here in the U.S. The day of pastels, and lilies, and lots and lots of massive, heart-shaped cards entitled I love you THIS much!
It was a lovely coincidence that I was sent a foundation too dark for my skin tone.
In true Mommy-Spirit, my mom graciously sat and smiled as I fluttered around her, dabbing, and spraying, and wiping. It got dicey when we came to mascara. But the foundation was definitely the star of the show.

I almost called this post “Pink Eye.” Aren’t you glad I didn’t?
Dodged that bullet.
Filming Vlogmas last Christmas instilled a YouTube passion in me. With spring colors (and an easy makeup look even I can’t mess up), the time has come—*dramatic pause*—for me to conquer—*second dramatic pause*—my first makeup tutorial.

Hello, my internet friends.
It’s not very often that I begin a post with “hello,” so, hello.
I have been doing quite a bit of thrift store shopping lately. Considering I have yet to finish my Medical Transcription curriculum and tap into a fountain of wealth, this is a little concerning.
But then, I remember my jeans were 25¢.

I, like many other girls, have a problem. I admit to it the same way I’ll admit to liking not cleaning my room and drinking coffee.
I like makeup. I enjoy makeup. I currently am wearing makeup.
A lot of my money is invested in this hobby.
Recently, I found myself in the makeup isle at Target. Total coincidence. Very, clip-clop-clip-clop GASP! ‘Oh golly, however did I end up here?’
Then I wander the isles with my broke self, poking at the devil’s tummy to tempt me with something good.
NYX tried to allure me into a $7 eyeliner. And then my eyes fell on the Maybelline display. In all it’s pink chrome glory.

A study showed that men find it attractive to watch women put on makeup. Makeup is one of those female things that makes us the magical, mysterious creatures we are to men.
But ladies, have you ever thought of how many expressions you make when putting on a fresh face?
I’m here to break it down.

Some of you may remember the Military Ball from last year. If you do, you’re my favorite.
In case you aren’t filled in, every year there is a Military Ball. My older brother is a merchant marine. Thus, he is invited to these military balls, providing us with the opportunity to spend a lot of money and join him. So we do.
Last year, it was just my brother and I. This year, we both had dates.
Ah yes, moving up in the world.
