Happy World Kindness Day!

Image From

Were you grumpy last Monday when you walked into work? Were you pissed at all the traffic you had to deal with when you were coming home from work? I'm gonna take a wild guess and say most of you dealt with at least one.
You know what can make people happy? Kindness. A simple gesture of being nice can change someone's frown into a smile. A stranger holding the door for you while you enter Starbucks, someone giving up their seat to you on the train because they can feel the exhaustion coming off of you, someone paying that extra ten cents that your cup of coffee costs because you didn't have enough. Hell....even just a simple hello or a smile from someone can brighten up your day.
I know this all sounds nice if it's being done to you, but how about doing it for someone else? Be nice on World Kindness Day. Give your neighbor a smile in the morning. Let someone go ahead of you in line just because. It's always nice to be nice. And it doesn't just have to be on the designated day. But start then and you might just make a habit of sending out positive vibes to the people around you.

Go on, be nice!

What I'm Reading: Hamlet.

Lately I've been watching a lot of television and movies. I told myself I would finish watching the second season of The Man In The High Castle, and then read something. I've done that (damnit it was hard to stop watching that show, it's so good). So my pick was to read Hamlet.

I've been wanting to read Shakespeare for a while, I just couldn't figure out which one of his works it'd be. I went into a thrift shop and picked up a few books (I paid about $3 and walked out with five books, fuckyeah thrifting). Hamlet was amongst them, and it just so happened to be one where it had the "easier" translation right next to the original words. I'm about halfway done with it, and I'm so glad the translation is there. I'd pretty good at understanding Shakespearian writing, but it just helps you get through the book quicker with the modern translations. I still peak over at the original text just to be able to see what means what in the world of Shakespeare.

What are you currently reading?

Empties #11.

Bath And Body Works Dark Kiss, Lush First Snow Powder, Kiss Brush On Nail Glue, Lush Grease Lightning, Revlon Photoready Primer, Maybelline Curvitude Liner, Soap And Glory Sugar Crush

Bath And Body Works Body Mist in Dark Kiss
My favorite Bath And Works scent ever. Unfortunately it's discounted, so I can only get it online. I have backups of this already, and always try to stock up when there's a sale of the Bath and Body Works website.

Will I Repurchase?: Already Have.

Kiss Brush On Nail Glue
Since I've started doing my own nails at home, this has been one of my staples. I've purchased this many times (probably over ten), and it's wonderful. The glue stays on for at least two weeks, but never damages my skin. And I prefer its brush tip as opposed to the regular drippy droppy (yes, I called it that for lack of a better word) application because it gives you more control over where your glue goes and how much you use.

Will I Repurchase?: Yes.

Lush First Snow Sparkling Dusting Powder
TMI: I'm a very sweaty person. I've noticed this powder helps battle that. I know you could use regular baby powder, but this has glitter in it so it adds some extra umph to everything. Gives you a little secret pretty perk that no one else might see, but glitter makes everything better so yay.

Will I Repurchase?: Yes.

Maybelline Curvitude Liquid Liner
I've come to love felt tip eyeliners. Surprisingly more than regular pencil, gel, or cream ones. It's just easier for me to put on. My mom randomly got this for me because of a BOGO sale, and I love trying to (drugstore) makeup. I've been using it for months and love it. Doesn't dry out in like two days, and somehow the angled packaging does help with application.

Lush Grease Lightning Tea Tree Cleanser
I have a million bottles of this all over my house. I used it for irritations such as bug bites, cuts, scratches, and just other irritations. I have literally had cuts one day, used this, and the cut has healed two days later. I love it. It's expensive for such a small bottle in my eyes, but it's eventually worth it because a little goes a long way so I don't run out of the stuff so quickly.

Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer
I've had this for a while now. I always have a love/hate relationship with primers (and setting sprays, for that matter). This one is another one of the silcone feeling ones. Again, I've not really noticed much of a change. Maybe my makeup has lasted an hour or two longer, but I honestly don't see much of a difference. That could just be me though.

Soap And Glory Sugar Crush Body Spray
I've grown to love Soap And Glory. Many of their products are really good, and they're at my local drugstore so they're super accessible. This spray comes in different scents, and this just so happens to be the wrong scent I used (my mom got it for me, but I still used it cause it smells good). It does have a kiwi/sugar scent to it. I love that it very light, but that could be a problem for you guys that like your perfume to stay stuck on you forever. Either way, I'm going to continue using this cause it's awesome.
