You! Cake or Death?

Who Is Your Favorite Doctor?


You!  Cake or Death is replacing the normal Poll Time post.  Please enjoy!

Geeky Clean TARDI-Soap, it's bigger on the inside


Did I mention this is Will Wheaton approved?  Oh I haven't, well cause it is.  And why not!  Scented with a delicate vanilla custard scent I at first found it to be both spicy and sweet.  A sort of musky and bubble gum type flavor, almost like what you would expect the TARDIS to smell like, all mystery and mirth.

Neutrogena Naturals Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover


Miracle work horse in a bottle, oh you betcha!  Neutrogena has changed everything I ever thought about cleaning my face with a two in one product that works like a charm.  I have to say I was very pleased when I started using it.  Within the first week the few blemishes I did have cleared up, but it took me till the second week to really see major results.  My redness had gone down dramatically, my face had that glow that I had not seen since my pre-acne youth, the skin bumps were vanishing, and my pores were starting to look smaller.  Even on closer inspection of my nose I could tell the pores were much cleaner than any nose strip could ever have hoped to achieve.

Cute Day


Had to share how cute my hair is today! :D

NARS Kismet Nail Polish

NARS Kismet is the answer to those of us that want to rock the summer yellow nail polish trend but find the bright color options a little too, well bright.


Hot Mama Monday - Benefit Prrrowl

Hot Mama Monday is a series that spotlights one item that I feel is a must have in your beauty bag.  If you only pick up one item this week have it be a Hot Mama item!


I don't know why but whenever I pull out Benefit Prrrowl Madonna's Express Yourself starts playing in my head.  Maybe it's my love of sparklie anything or perhaps cause this product is peacock blue perfection.  I don't know the reason but if Prrrowl has a theme song Express Yourself must be it.

FTW Friday's the Win FTW - May 27, 2001

FTW or Friday's the Win is a play on For the Win and a recurring theme every Friday. Since everyone looks forward to Friday's arrival each week I figured it'd be a good time to share with everyone what made your week filled with extra epic awesomeness! Maybe you have a ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.  May you can pat your head and rub your belly at the same time. Or maybe you really are a Barbie girl. Whatever it is that made your week tell us all about it here!

Not only am I really excited that I was able to get everything I wanted from MAC Surf Baby but I also scored in finding MAC Lucky Green eye shadow and the blue cosmetic bag from MAC Wonder Woman.  As you can see below Diana loves it!



What made your Friday full of extra win?  Spill all in the comments!

Wonder Woman Figurine

If you are ever in a store and here a loud girlish squeal of delight that might possibly shatter your ear drums, chances are you'll find me.  Sometimes I just can't help myself especially when I find HER!

Benefit Cha Cha Tint


Are you ready to Cha Cha ladies?  Of course you are!  The latest in the Benefit collection of cheek and lip tints bring us Cha Cha Tint, a luscious coral to softly dot on your checks or layer on your lips.


If you want to survive out here, you've got to know where your towel is.

Happy Towel Day Duckies!!

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy has a few things to say on the subject of towels.   A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have. Partly it has great practical value — you can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble‐sanded beaches of Santraginus Ⅴ, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a mini raft down the slow heavy river Moth; wet it for use in hand‐to‐hand‐combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or to avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mindbogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you — daft as a bush, but very ravenous); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

Do you have your towel with you today?  Share photos of you and your towel in the comments!

The Three Ninja's Daily

Guess who was a feature article in the Leisure Section of The Three Ninja's Daily today.  It's so cool!  I feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :D 

Also check out the rest of the paper, some really good articles and finds from other bloggers, famous people, journalists, and LOLCATZ too.

Holy Grail Product! - Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder


Look familiar?  Perhaps you've seen the container on the left sitting on your Grandmother, Aunt, or even your Mother's vanity table?  Oh yes this classic powder is indeed a Holy Grail Product, the beauty secret of many a woman and make-up artist staple.

NARS Cap Ferrat Trio Eye Shadow

Close your eyes for a second.  Now imagine your lying in a beach chair, your painted toes buried in the warm sand as a sweet ocean breeze blows your hair around, down the way you see the ocean waves crash against the beach.  Now open your eyes.

OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Collection

Just like buried treasure this set has been the hard to find one.  It seemed every time I went by a store to complete my set it was sold out! 


Sadly I am still missing Mermaid's Tears to complete my Pieces of Eight set but I wanted to share what I did have.

To Fake Bake or Not to Fake Bake

Every summer I struggle with this dilemma.  Should I buy some tanning lotion or should I just lay out and try to get some sun.  See the problem with my job and lifestyle is very little sun is involved.  I work in a windowless office, many times in very cold comm rooms or server floors which also have no windows and means my work garb is mainly long pants.  My home life is either spent in front of the computer or the television or catching up on cleaning, laundry, etc etc.  The little time I do go outside I tend to lean towards wearing pants mostly cause I'm attempting to hide my bright white legs (as well as my hips).  I always say I am going to get more sun but I just never seem to do it. 

Hot Mama Monday - NARS Dogon Eye Shadow Duo

Hot Mama Monday is a new series that spotlights one item that I feel is a must have in your beauty bag.  If you only pick up one item this week have it be a Hot Mama item!

NARS Dogon Eye Shadow Duo is even better than her sister Exotic Dance.


Icy green shimmering taupe paired with smokey charcoal.  If Exotic Dance is the angelic sister, Dogon must be her evil twin.

NARS Exotic Dance Eye Shadow Duo

I can almost here the jangle of coins on a belly dancer's costume when I look at NARS Exotic Dance.  Never before has an eye shadow so closely resembled it's name sake.


Special Delivery - Benefit Cha Cha Tint Preview

Despite Blogger having some issues last week I tried to get the word out that HSN was having a pre-sale of Benefit's Cha Cha Tint before it's scheduled release of June 1st.  Hopefully some of you got the message and were able to jump on the deal as well.  Mine just came!!


FTW Friday's the Win FTW - May 20, 2011

FTW or Friday's the Win is a play on For the Win and a recurring theme every Friday. Since everyone looks forward to Friday's arrival each week I figured it'd be a good time to share with everyone what made your week filled with extra epic awesomeness! Maybe you found an extra $20 in your pocket while doing the laundry. Maybe you came home to find your house had been cleaned by elves while you were at work. Or maybe you're just glad the weekend is finally here. Whatever it is that made your week tell us all about it here!

A few things made my FTW this week.  For starters my awesome Wonder Woman figurine (and new FTW image) arrived from Hot Topic.  My Benefit Cha Cha Tint showed up much earlier than expected.  I finally found OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Silver Shatter Top Coat.  And lastly, summer has arrived here and with it beautiful sun shining days that I can attempt to get my tan on.  Hopefully, my ghost white legs won't reflect the sun away from them too badly.



What's your FTW?

Stila Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

Beach and Pool Season is almost upon us, along with humid hot weather and mosquito season...but we are not here to talk about that.  No we are here to talk about the fabulousity that is Stila's new Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eye Liners.  And sparklie they are indeed.

Top to Bottom: Flash, Electric, Royal, and Rock Candy

Fat Faeries Don't Fly - What do you mean I can't eat that?

I know, I know, I haven't posted anything about my (failed) attempts at getting into shape and getting healthy.  I have a few days of doing very well followed by twice as many days of not.  I walked a lot this weekend, but that doesn't make up for weeks of not exercising.  About the only thing that has gotten exercise is my fingers as they click click away at the keyboard.  I need a work out routine like George Jetson.  You remember the cartoon where George would lie on a couch and watch himself working out on a video.  Did he ever lose any weight that way cause I want to try that.

I digress, after enjoying a delicious and very unhealthy double cheeseburger at Five Guys (love this place) I realized I need to get serious about this.  I just turned 33, my cholesterol is all ready 2 points above normal, diabetes/heart disease/cancer runs in the family, you get the idea.  I'm not getting any younger or thinner.  Not that I think buxom isn't beautiful but I want to be a healthy buxom.  It's time for me to get serious and I'm asking that you duckies help keep me honest about that.  I'm going to start walking more and work my way up to work out videos and work out games, so my back doesn't flare up.  I'm going to log back into SparkPeople and start using my account again to help me track and stay on track as well.  And I would love it if you all would help motivate me too or share your stories.  Come on ladies let's get healthy, together!

Special Delivery - NARS Summer Collection Preview

Look what I got!!  Yes yes yes it is what I got from the NARS Summer Collection!  Are you excited?  Cause I know I am!  Here's some pictures to wet your appetite...

Under the Weather

Please excuse the lack of updates of late. Between Blogger having some issues last week and now I'm under the weather, sadly the blog has suffered. As of right now nothing is scheduled to post but as soon as I am up for it I will be back on track, hopefully by Wednesday. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.

Ulta Haul

I'm slowly working my way through my growing Beauty Want List.  You ever noticed how you add more things than you cross off.  Any way, here is what I picked up this week.


Okay I'll be honest, about half of these items are on my List, the other half were impulse buys.  But sometimes the real gems can be found there too, right?

Laura Geller Eye Rimz

"Are you watching QVC?...Wait are you buying more make-up?" came the question from TeenMisfit one night.  I replied that I was and continued to finalize my purchase.  "Do you really need more make-up?" he snarked back at me.  I glared at him over the iPad, "May I remind you who provides you with the latest video games and also dictates how much Fallout: New Vegas time you are allowed to have."  Defeated, TeenMisfit returns to his boy cave in the hopes that the Evil and Crazy Make-up Lady does not take away his beloved game.  Three days later the Laura Geller Eye Rimz were all mine to play with.

Top: Crystal Cobalt and Hocus Pocus (Green)
Bottom: Potion (Purple), Bewitching Bronze, and Gold Spell
Not Shown: Copper Cadabra

Crayola Washable Colored Bubbles - Inner Child Approved

I'm a bit of a Crayola fiend.  Kind of comes with the territory growing up not far from where the crayons are made, seeing the crayons made first hand on school and Girl Scouting trips, and finally working at the Crayola Factory Discovery Center itself for a short time (I was one of the Creative troops that got to introduce kids to the Crayola Color Burst Crayons before they were released to the public for purchase).  Yes it might be in my blood.

So you can understand my girlish squees of delight when I found out Crayola was releasing Washable Colored Bubbles this summer.  I drove my family mad driving from store to store till I had acquired all 5 colors.
Wild Blue Yonder, Pink Flamingo, Screamin' Green, Sunset Orange, Purple Pizzazz

FTW Friday's the Win FTW - May 6, 2011

FTW or Friday's the Win is a play on For the Win and a recurring theme every Friday. Since everyone looks forward to Friday's arrival each week I figured it'd be a good time to share with everyone what made your week filled with extra epic awesomeness! Maybe you found the perfect Summer dress. Maybe you defeated Portal 2 and it only took you 9825 hours. Or maybe you woke up to find yourself in a cartoon. Whatever it is that made your week tell us all about it here!

My FTW this week is simple, I am gonna relax.  It has been a grueling week, a grueling month, and a good chunk of the past few years has been grueling too.  So I am gonna relax.  I am gonna sit down and do what I want to do and not worry about doing what I have to or need to do.  And I might just go to Sephora and Ulta and spend more money than I should.  LOL  Well within reason of course.

What's making your Friday full of Win?

Doctor Who Inspired Quick FOTD

I was wearing my Doctor Who Woot Shirt and wanted to do a quick look to match it.  I've been on a bit of a no/one shade only eyeshadow kick of late, preferring to let my eyeliner and mascara do the work.  Here is what I came up with.

Butter London No More Waity Katie

Oh No More Waity Katie, how I waited and waited for you to arrive.  Oohing and aahing over your lovely color in the bottle I couldn't wait to apply you Thursday night before William and Kate's big day.  Described as "a soft, elegant greige shade with a splash of lilac glitter" on the Butter London site you certainly were all that and more.
