I originally had a Valentine’s makeup tutorial that I was going to post today but everything just went royally wrong with it. But I did film a house build for my gaming channel, that is inspired by the holiday. It’s a super small house good for one sim that has a lot of pinks and reds, as well as flowers and is in the shape of a heart. So I hope you enjoy this build instead.…

This year’s Jeffree Star Holiday Collection is dubbed the glitter collection complete with eight velour liquid lipsticks, two skin frost pro palettes, and three lip ammunition. I ended up only getting the velour liquid lipsticks which came together in a buddle for $105. Each tube has an ombre of pink glitter to transparent so you can still see inside of the tube. Some of these shades I’m a little considered won’t look good on me while others I think will look amazing. But any that don’t work on my lips, I can always use on my eyes. So no matter what I know I’ll use it since thankfully Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks are eye safe.

About two years ago I first tried ColourPop’s Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks, and noticed after my first impressions post I noticed my lips were insanely dried out. So I got rid of all my Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks and switched to Ultra Satin. Then a few months ago, I decided I would try out a few of them again since they changed the formula. Or so I heard, and the new shades did have a new formula that made them feel nicer on the lips. But any that were part of the initial launch, still left my lips feel like the life was drained out of them. When the holiday collection was launched, it was the Ultra Matte formula while the fall collection was the Ultra Satin. So I was a little cautious about getting these lipsticks, but caved in on cyber monday when they were $4 instead of $6. As that made it a little more tempting to get these six shades. Plus all of these shades are in my absolute favorite shade range.

It’s Christmas time! And we’ve decorated my mom’s townhouse with all the decorations from snowman to Christmas tree to centerpiece on the table. This is my mom’s first time having a “pretty” tree as she puts it. Meaning, not putting up all the ornaments my sister and I made over the years when we were kids. Which caused my sister, Lucy, to get frustrated since she wasn’t excepting it. Especially considering this is also the first year my mom put up a fake tree not a real Fraiser tree. And I sided with my mom with the fake tree with the non-childhood ornamenets. We decided to go with a gold and red theme for the tree as my mom found ornaments of that color pattern that she loved. Plus it’s also the colors of my sister’s favorite hockey team, so once I pointed that out she was happier with the tree. I personally would love to have my blue and bronze ornaments with white woodland creatures, but I’m apparently the only one in our family that loves that. Hopefully next year I can bring that back. But for the meantime, I’m quite happy with this tree. So here is a little photo diary of our Christmas decorations.

I got the idea for this storytime blog post from a fellow blogger, Meghan Joy Yancy. From the title you would probably assume I just found out the truth, but really I’m referring to when I was about four or five years old. As well as forecasting my thoughts into the future. Almost every kid is told about Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, and The Tooth Fairy. And then at some point in their life they find out that they all aren’t real with the following event feeling like all the magic was drained out of the festivities. Maybe even for years. For the longest time, after my sister discovered the truth about Santa I felt like Christmas just wasn’t the same. Which probably amounted to my parents deciding afterwards not to put the magic into the season as they didn’t feel the need to carry on the lie. But it was those activities they did that brought life into the celebration. From pretending to leave out reindeer food and Christmas cookies/milk for Santa. To having an Easter egg hunt around the house. Which stopped the year following us not believing in the bunny anymore, and was replaced by just candy/present on the dining table instead. So how did I find out the truth?
