Sunday Summary: January 25th 2015

Sunday is settling down, but I didn’t want to let the day end without writing up a Sunday Summary post. I can’t start a feature and then fail at it on week two… Or I can, but I am going to try not to! I guess I’ll be starting backwards, …

The Raft by S.A. Bodeen

Book Whimsy: The Raft, Fish, Animal Teachers

Today’s Book Whimsy features three short books. Honestly, I love short books. There’s just something about being able to finish a book in one day, which could be accomplished with all three of these. These are all short for different reasons–one is a YA novel, another is a graphic novel …

December 2014 Empties 5

December 2014 Empties

I’m actually surprised that despite heading off on vacation on the 18th, there’s a decent stash for my December 2014 Empties. Originally, I thought I might combine these with January, but I’ll stick to separate posts as I continue my impossible quest to use up all the products… I got …

5 Best Nighttime Lip Balms

OPI Infinite Shine Withstands the Test of Thyme 3

Whimsical Wishlist

One of my bad, dreadfully time-consuming habits is looking at things on the internet and not buying them. But lately, I managed to convince myself it was actually somehow productive because then I could create wishlists for Writing Whimsy. So uhh, here’s a bunch of things I like. Mainly from …

Sunday Summary: January 18th 2015

Okay so towards the end of 2014 I tried something called “Friday Favourites” and although I was mildly successful at it, it was kinda weird and rushed to get a weekly summary up on Friday that included Friday. Plus, only including “favourites” was a little forced at times, instead of …

Mark Naked Love Bath & Body Collection 4

Mark Naked Love Bath & Body Collection

So I think Mark is basically Avon’s cooler, trendier younger sibling, and I really like their products. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, they are launching a new Mark Naked Love Bath & Body Collection*, which includes a body butter, body wash, body mist, and hand cream, all in the …
