Something that I’ve seen of debate recently in the beauty community, specifically the drama community on YouTube, is the ingredient mica which is a popular ingredient in most eyeshadow palettes. There are two different types: natural and synthetic fluorophlogopite. So, I thought I would do some research into the ingredient as I was curious what the big deal was. And then share with you that information since we’re focused on cruelty free beauty here. And while by definition that means “not tested on animals at any stage of production”, there is such a thing as ethically sourced and I think that falls into this category as well.
The major thing that I’ve done this week is play the latest expansion pack of The Sims 4, so I’m just going to go into the latest pack and all of it’s details since I’ve been playing it since it was released on Friday. And I don’t have anything else I really wanted to go over in this week’s Pop Culture Download.View Post
I love playing The Sims 4, which probably comes as no surprise and I have basically every expansion, game, and stuff packs that are currently out as of November 15, 2019. I’m only stating the date as more packs are probably going to come out in the future and I’ll post something in the future on those most likely. So I thought it would be a fun idea to rank them. Now I’m ranking them based off how often I use the content of these packs, a number of things you get in the packs, and the overall theme of the packs. Some packs I solely just use a few of its features, but none of the rest of it. So the rankings are all my opinion on how usable they are to my gameplay.View Post
I found quite a few songs in the last few weeks that I’ve just fallen in love with, and since I haven’t shared any new song that I’ve discovered in a while I thought this week was the perfect opportunity since I haven’t had a lot of time to do much else as my huge work project is finally at go-live time. After this next week, I should have way more time again where I can blog and explore new things.View Post
Last week, I saw the movie adaption for Fallen and I was confused as hell, yet intrigued. Also honestly I have only been reading books from the Shadowhunters Chronicles (The Mortal Instruments, The Dark Artifices, and The Infernal Devices) for the last several months, so it was time for something different. I picked up all six books from The Fallen Series and so far have only read the main four books: Fallen, Torment, Passion, and Rapture. Instead of doing a review of each book in the series, I’m just going to share my thoughts overall on the series.View Post
An iconic item that appears in horror movies is a Ouija Board, and since I’ve been doing classical horror movies this year I thought I would do my own version of this. If you don’t know what an Ouija board is, it’s a way of communicating with spirits. Though I would not suggest doing this as you never know what you are inviting into your home or where you’re at.View Post
The Exorcist is one of those films where the horror just doesn’t hold up over time. Or maybe we’re just desensitized to horror and gore these days from the news and internet that it no longer holds the same freight level it used to. When this film first came out, people were vomiting, fleeing the theater and their were priests there for the movie-goers. Since I’m on a bit of a classic horror movie recreation for this Halloween, I had to attempt Regan from The Exorcist.View Post
