My Comic-Con 2019
My 11th consecutive San Diego Comic-Con is in the books! I had a lot of anxiety leading up to the trip because I haven’t been feeling my best lately. The con was rough for me at times, but I survived…and even managed to have some fun. 😛 I’ve been back home for almost a week and it’s taken me some time to sit down and write this post. Beware: as with all my SDCC recaps, long post ahead!
All Night Eye Masks
A new-to-me-brand, VIIcode, reached out to me recently to see if I’d be interested in trying their Oxygen Eye Mask for All Night Repair. You know how much I love trying out new brands and masks, so of course I said yes! VIIcode kindly sent me a set of six eye masks. Thank you, VIIcode!
My June Beauty Empties
I’m late posting my June empties because I’ve been taking a break from using the computer and phone. My right arm has been acting up from repetitive motion so I’ve been trying to rest it…which is very hard to do these days. My arm still doesn’t feel good but I wanted to get this post out before my 11th San Diego Comic-Con!
I emptied a bunch of beauty products in June:
Summery Stitch Fix Pieces
Summer is officially here and so is my 26th Stitch Fix! I come to hate summer more every year (the heat! the humidity! oh, the humanity!) but here we are. I’m still working on the best way to take photos of myself modeling my pieces, but I’m decently satisfied with the pics for my June Stitch Fix.
Here’s a peek at what my stylist, Jennifer, picked out for me this time around:
A Good Start to 41
In lieu of a Friday Five today, I want to recap my birthday, which was yesterday. It’s hard to believe I just turned 41! Mentally I still feel like a kid, but physically, well, that’s a whole other story. 😛 Overall, though, I’m pretty okay with being in my 40s. This past year was rough at times but it definitely had its highlights, too. Here’s hoping 41 brings all sorts of positive things!
Eye Patches, Tatcha Haul, Home Decor
1. Pacifica Leave Pretty Anti-Puff Patches: I bought these on a whim at Target because they were so damn cute! Unfortunately, they turned out to be a no for me. The leaf shape is adorable but it doesn’t actually fit the whole undereye area. In my opinion, they’re more form than function. The directions say to leave (hah) them on for 10 to 20 minutes, but they started to sting a bit so I removed them after about eight minutes and rinsed my undereye area. Stinging around the eyes is no bueno! The sensation dissipated quickly after rinsing, but I wouldn’t buy these again.
A Wrinkle Cream Gifted by Dr. Brandt
I was super excited when Dr. Brandt sent me another gift last month! I recently reviewed the Neck Sculpting Cream that they sent me, and I was so honored to have the opportunity to try another Dr. Brandt product, the Needles No More® Wrinkle Smoothing Cream. These PR gifts are always a surprise and a delight. Thank you so much, Dr. Brandt!
