Oldies But Goodies.

Hey loves. I know I've promised new and improved content here on the blog, but I just don't want you guys to forget about the older gems you can still find around here. So here are some posts from in the back-back days that you should check out.

No Regrets, Just Love: Top 3 Blushes - The blushes I will always go back to, no matter the season or the occasion.

NYX Lipstick in Paris - Beautiful bubblegum pink (leaning a bit coral). NYX never lets me down with their lipsticks.

Blogging: My Take On It - A little taste of my rather n00b experience here in the blogosphere.

Maybelline The Rocket Mascara - I've always loved all of Maybelline's mascara (minus Lash Stiletto...Last Stiletto is pure garbage). Here's another one I've tried that is no different.

ELF Gotta Glow Highlighter - Wonderful highlighter, and budget friendly as well. I keep hearing it's a dupe for NARS's Albatross, but I don't have the higher end one to compare for myself.

What types of posts of mine do you love, and which can I do a little better on? Let me know in the comments!

Today In A Nutshell.

So, after running a bunch of errands and going to a few doctors appointments, I came home and wanted to wind ALL the way down. How do I do that?



Books. More specifically, books by H.G. Wells. That's War of The Worlds up there, and so far I'm enjoying it. I've wanted to read it for a long time now.

Underneath that is the beautiful Nicole Guerriero, beating her face to a cool-toned T. I love her and she always inspires me to be gorgeous no matter what. Call me a kinda-sorta shut in, but YouTube and good reads are my life when I'm trying to relax myself.

What do you do when it's time for you to settle down and take a break?

All new ERRTHANG (Blog relaunch).

Hey guys. I know it's been a ridiculously long time since you've heard from me - over a freaking year. That's a no bueno. But it's honestly due to not having enough time to blog. I was focusing on finishing my degree and work. I'm currently taking a break from both, and I've had the itch to start doing this all again.

However, it'll be a little different. I've turned Love That Lavender Brunette into Strangeandpretty.com (yay for my own domain name!), and I probably won't be as beauty focused as I was before. Beauty will still be here - I of course do still love the act of beating a face, but I'm really going to have this blog be my little corner of the internet to showcase things that I just like. Whether it's beauty, lifestyle, fashion, everyday things, or just me complaining about random nonsense - you're gonna find that here. I know it may be different for some of you and you'll either love it or hate it, but it's truly where I wanted to take this blog and I have high hopes for it.

I'm still ironing out some of the kinks - updating things, switching some stuff around, getting used to blogging again, etc. So bare with me. But within the next few weeks everything will be unveiled and we'll be on and poppin again.

In the meantime, you know you can always find me on twitter and instagram to see what nonsense I'm into in real time. So make sure to follow me on those.

Love you!
