The Photography Setup


Photography and aesthetics is something deeply personal/subjective for everyone, and while I've never taken a photography class before, it makes me incredibly happy to receive positive feedback over the past few months regarding the blog photos. At the same time though, I'm kinda like 'QURL U NEED UR EYES FIXED' because I feel like I'm a bit undeserving, but what do I know, eh??

Anyways, I thought I'd share my own photography setup + some things/tips I've picked up over the course of blogging.

(Oh yeah, some people might find this post useless/common sense, [-coughcough- the photography mavens], so I don't mind if you jump ship on this post c: )

Top Six Blushes


Choosing top favourites for anything is difficult, but when you make a blush hoarder choose her top favourite blushes, gross sobbing and stressed binge eating ensues. 

(Oh who am I kidding, I stress binge almost every week during the school season)

Hello, Maybelline! {A Mascara Comparison}


Every time Maybelline mascaras go on sale at the drugstore, there's always one person holding a fistful and panicking/dazed/confused as to choosing which tube to buy.

I don't blame them. I've been there....which totally explains why I have 5 tubes....

I really don't know why Maybelline decides to release a new mascara practically every month (seriously man, its like they have nothing better to do each month than repackage a previously existing mascara and call it a ~new~ one)(eg. 'Falsies Flared', 'Falsies Black Drama', 'Cat Eyes Colossal' 'The Colossal Smoky Eyes'...ja feel??!?)

BUT, complaints aside, pretty much everyone agrees that Maybelline generally makes fantastic mascaras. But with a multitude of their mascaras out, how on earth does one even choose which to try????!

IT'S OK, I GOT YO' BACK. WE GON' SEE AND TEST SOME CLAIMS OF THE VOLUM' EXPRESS LINE, AITE?
