Why Everyone Needs A Cat


I know, some of you are going to be thinking, “I’m just not a cat person,” and that’s ok. You can think that. Everyone has a right to his or her own opinion.  That being said, you are totally wrong.  There is no such thing, in my opinion, as a cat person and a dog person. Let’s stop using these labels, please!  Not all cats are the same and this is true for dogs as well. I had a dog, Angel, who lived to be about 17 years old. Continue reading

It’s Ok To Splurge Every Now And Then


I love makeup and skincare products (if you haven’t already noticed).  Well, I have been wanting a decent eyeshadow pallet for awhile.  I bought this one from Sephora in December and think the gold colors are great, but everything else is not very pigmented and I’ve experienced a lot of fallout.

When Seoul Meets Indiana Part 2


I was reminded today of a post I wrote in 2013 called When Seoul Meets Indiana.  I totally forgot about this post and after rereading it today, I had a good laugh and actually teared up a bit. It was good to remember some of what I wrote and it inspired me to write a second post regarding the same subject: my international relationship with K.  Continue reading

Gifts From Korea


K returned home from Korea a little over a week ago.  It’s always weird when he leaves and the adjustment period for when he comes back is a bit strange and uncomfortable. I was kind of nervous about him coming back and seeing him again. Even though we’ve been together so long and see each other nearly every day when he’s here, it’s still a strange thing to experience.  Continue reading

My Most Recent Crochet Projects


You may or may not know that I love to crochet.  Sometimes I like it more than other times and the winter seems like a time during which I crochet a lot more.  The last couple of weeks, I’ve been crocheting up a storm.  I’ve been told that crocheting and knitting help to occupy the mind through the coordination of the hands, the eyes, and the mind.

A Week of Beauty and Scarves


I love beauty products. I love to shop for them online, but going outside to the stores, especially during winter, is stressful to me. I don’t like moving around people and having to make eye contact with other shoppers, so I usually don’t even look at people. This makes it quite awkward because I almost or actually do run into people. It’s like I can’t make eye contact and I can’t see others. I don’t know how to explain it, but maybe it’s a bit of social anxiety. Anyway, I decided it was probably time to get new conditioner after I noticed my previous one no longer smelled right :(  I picked up a few other things at the same time. Continue reading

A Hilarious Beauty Fail


I have always liked vintage fashion, makeup, and hair.  I mean, what’s not to like?  Gorgeous, bouncy curls, bright red lipstick, and pretty scarves tied in bows on top of the head; the epitome of classic beauty.  I started looking up how to make pin curls.  Put briefly, pin curls are made without heat by rolling slightly damp hair from tip to root and then bobby pinning each of these rolls in an “x.”  Pin curls were commonly used to give women those beautiful curls in the 40s and 50s.

Simply Natural Lotions: A Brand You Need To Know About


As someone who has a phobia of illness and who has OCD, I have strong compulsions to wash my hands after doing the most basic of tasks (e.g. touching a door knob, using the fax machine at work).  I know this is irrational, but it’s more like a fight-or-flight response than a response of reason.  I am driven by the anticipation of an event rather than an actuality. Continue reading

I’m Spending New Year’s Eve Alone And That’s OK

I will be honest, I do not like spending time with people, which is probably why I have few IRL friends and spend time with my family mostly just during holidays. I do, of course, enjoy spending time with K.  Chester does not count. I’d spend every day being bored with him than even one full night of “partying.”  Going out somewhere during the cold months gives me a lot of anxiety and a lot of unnecessary worrying about illness. I’d rather just not go out and enjoy my time alone at home. Sorry if that’s weird to you, but it’s how I can be comfortable and mostly relaxed.

I did pick out my “going out” outfit for the evening, which I’m not actually going to wear, but that I think would be great for the occasion.

Yes, those are my feet.

Yes, those are my feet. I love the crop top with the pencil skirt. I think it is a flattering, sexy look for me. I choose to wear yellow or rose gold jewelry when I wear darker clothes because I think it brings out the warmth in my usually cool skin tone.
