Darling Girl Cosmetics “Queens of Horror”

WOAH Dudes,

It’s been freaking forever since I wrote anything on my blog and for that I apologize. My life has been insanely hectic for the last few months and I finally have some time to sit down and share something exciting with you!

First things first, you can thank my amazing friend Elizabeth for this blog post today, love you girl! Secondly, today I present to you the Darling Girl Cosmetics Halloween 2015 collection called “Queens of Horror”. I swatched all of the eyeshadows this morning and can’t wait to share them with you because it’s DG and obviously these shadows are going to be fucking gorgeous!

Are you ready for some deets?

A Very Special Day

Hello fancy pants,

How are you today? I bet you aren’t doing hardly as well as I am. It’s currently 9:23 p.m. on Tuesday April 21st, now that may just seem like an ordinary day to you but for me, Ace and Amadora it’s a pretty damn important one! On this day, exactly 5 years ago, Amadora was born!

Birthday Princess! Wearing her fancy dress and amazing crown that her fairy godmother, Rachel, sent to her! HEYYYY, Rachel! Love you!

The Elusive E*A*S*T*E*R 2015 Glamour Doll Eyes Boxed Set

Oh hello,

You’re probably thinking to yourself, HOT DAMN! She got her act together this week, doing multiple posts just a few days apart. Thanks for thinking so highly of me and I love you but let’s get down to business!

I have, in my pointy, little claws, the elusive Glamour Doll Eyes Easter Box Set. Only 20 were ever available for sale and I was one of the lucky bastards who managed to snag one. BEST EASTER “EGG” EVERRRRR!


The first thing that I really need to say is a thank you to my fucking incredible friend, Allison. Without you, none of this would be possible!

Let’s look at it!!!!

Okay, the flowers didn't come with  the Easter Set but they're pretty, aren't they?

Okay, the flowers didn’t come with the Easter Set but they’re pretty, aren’t they?

Alright, so the box set was super inexpensive in my opinion, coming in at $24 (price without shipping). The set includes 4 full size eyeshadows ($6 value each) and a full size blush ($9 value), so basically you get the blush for free which seems like a great value to me. The only thing that had me a little bit nervous was the fact that there were no swatches of the colors and it was basically a blind buy besides knowing the names of each shade but let me tell you, I am not disappointed AT ALL! This was the best blind buy that I have ever made.

Prepare yourself. No, really, prepare yourself! You might want to grab a paper bag for the hyperventilating that is about to occur.

Can you see the sparkles? CAN YOU FREAKING SEE THEM? So much love, so much drool, so much glitter. I’m pretty sure I’m a magpie as I can’t stop looking at the sparkles, I was just going to say… sparklesssss!

All of the shadows are incredible, super buttery and easy to apply, they are all gorgeous but my favorite out of all of them is Serenade. Serenade is the epic purple color and I shit you not, it has the most amazing green duochrome that I have ever seen. If you look at the “outdoor lighting” photo you can see that section of mint green and although that may just look like flash from the camera, it’s not, that’s the actual duochrome shift that it contains. I can die happy now.

And now, here is a picture of the blush that came with the set, depending on your skin tone you could definitely use this a highlighter. I am so fair that this will work as a lovely peach blush. It’s also eyes and lips safe, so do with it what you want!

So are you in love? Did you manage to snag a set? I hope you did because this collection is out of this world. If you didn’t manage to snag a set you can still shop the Glamour Doll Eyes website here. And even if you did manage to grab a set, buy yourself something anyway! You made it through this week and you deserve a gift because you’re the kitties titties!

Until next time,

Fare thee well,

Fair Maiden




Sookie wanted to show off like always. Look at that close up of Serenade! FARE WELL!

I apologize for my absence for the last couple of weeks, I’ll be making a post about what I’ve been up to later today or tomorrow but for now it’s “The Tits” Tuesdays!!! Today I have a product that I have fallen head over heels for, if it were a person I’d throw my panties at it/them and then propose. The item I am talking about is made by Brija Cosmetics and is known as Adhesive Eye Wax, I love it, it loves me.

Great packaging, even better product.

Baby, it’s f*@$ing cold outside.

Hey beautiful,

I had a little bit of free time on this miserably cold day so I thought I’d pop my head in and say hellloooo. I wanted to tell y’all a little more about myself, I’m really quite boring but maybe some of you can relate to my life. We can be a support system for one another. So here’s a couple quick facts about my life:

1. I’m 23, soon to be 24, and I live with my husband and our daughter in upstate New York. It’s horrible here and I can’t wait to move, the weather is miserable and I need more heat to survive. Here’s one of my favorite places to go, where it’s warmer:

Black Sand Beaches in the Marin Headlands of California.

Also, I’ve been married to my amazing husband for 5 going on 6 years. He’s pretty great and at least if we have to live in New York, I get to be with him and Amadora.


2. In the past year I was diagnosed with OCD, obsessive thoughts are mostly my issue, I don’t take any type of prescription for it because I had a bad reaction to Prozac. I would highly suggest that anyone try using vitamins and self-help books before going on prescription anxiety medicine. Here are the vitamins I take and the current self-help book that I’m reading:

Mindfulness Workbook for OCD has been such an eye-opener. Also an excellent tool to help your loved ones understand why the struggle with OCD is so frightening

Mindfulness Workbook for OCD has been such an eye-opener. Also an excellent tool to help your loved ones understand why the struggle with OCD is so frightening

The mindfulness workbook has not only helped me understand what I’m up against but it has helped my husband better understand and support me when I am panicking. OCD has completely overtaken my life in the past 2 years, I’ve always been a worrier (ask my mother) and I’ve always had anxiety but it wasn’t until this past September that I was finally diagnosed with OCD by a psychiatrist. Now, that doesn’t make me crazy or psycho but it does mean I am flawed, I’ll admit to it because no one is perfect. Although I feel like OCD and the anxiety that directly relates to it constantly burdens my life, I am determined to overcome and persevere.


3. My daughter, Amadora,  means everything to me and I don’t even really like children all that much (besides a very select few that I adore and would take a bullet for). I never even really thought I would have a child, but she was such an incredible blessing that I can’t imagine my life without her. She reminds me to let loose and be silly, not to be so uptight all of the time. Our personalities are on the exact opposite of the spectrum and it works for us. This is a picture of us from last year at Disney World:

Queen Elinor and Merida.

Queen Elinor and Merida.

I really don’t know what I would do without her, she’s the honeysuckle to my honey bee. I’m a stay at home mom right now, so we spend a lot of days together playing and watching movies. Her current favorite things to play with are Shopkins and My Little Pony stuff. Her favorite movie is Ghostbusters, her favorite song is Brass Monkey. I’d like to think that she’s pretty rad for being 2 months shy of 5.


4. I am addicted to Disney World and all Disney related garb! We’ve gone 2 years in a row and will be hitting up Disney Land this year since we will be moving to California to be with family (HALLELUJAH). I love theme parks in general but Disney parks and Universal Studios are my favorite. We’ve gone to Universal Orlando 3 years in a row, every time we go it’s so that we can visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, I love butter beer!

Oh hey, you're positively primeval.

Anyway, if you ever need a tour guide for Disney World or Universal Orlando, I can help you out!


5. I am currently enrolled at Bryant and Stratton College- Online, studying for my Associate’s of Applied Science in Human Resource Management. I have 2 1/2 weeks of school left and absolutely cannot wait to be done! I love school, don’t get me wrong. But I am juggling a lot right now and can’t wait for this to be off of my plate. Go to school kids! It’ll pay off in the long run, or at least I think it will.


So anyway, that’s just a little bit about me. I’ll finish this post off with a couple pictures of my WPOTD because why not?

“The Tits” Tuesday feat. Darling Clandestine

Hello again,

It’s been a week since I’ve posted as I’ve been absolutely swamped with homework. I’m in my final two classes for college right now and shit is getting real, I’m officially done in 2 1/2 weeks (freaking the heck out just a bit). Anyway, I had an excellent mail day today and felt that it was necessary to talk about one of my absolute favorite indie brands, keep reading and then shop and it’ll be one of your favorites too! Because these products are what I would so lovingly refer to as “the tits”!

Darling Clandestine is the company that I’m talking about and they have an amazing Etsy site where you can purchase their products. This company is based in Texas and they focus on making the most kick-ass perfumes that I have ever had the pleasure of placing on my skin (It puts the perfume on it’s skin, It puts it on real good). The owner, Evonne, is one interesting lady and you can follow her escapades on Instagram or Facebook

This week, I present to you Black Violet Steel Petals Body Butter and Perfume Oil.

Look at how pretty it is! The purple packaging get's me every damn time!
