The Everything-you-asked-for Blog

I want to tell you guys something crazy. I am not really that passionate about makeup. Ok, I really, really, really like makeup. A lot. But there are a lot of other things I like. I'm big into fitness, I love pop culture, I'm a huge book nerd, etc. The one thing that I am passionate about above all of those is writing. That's why I started this blog, not because I felt a burning need to tell the world about how much I love eyeshadow(although you're happy to know, right?).
I never meant for this to be a makeup blog-it's just sort of become that. But lately I've been getting a bit bored of writing about makeup so often. I wasn't sure what I wanted to write about next, so I turned to Facebook to see what other people might like to read about. And I got some very...interesting responses. I was just going to take one and roll with it. But I've been working on a paper for school the last few days, and I'm pretty burnt out, and having a hard time forming comoplete thoughts. So I thought I'd just write the first few things that come to mind for all the suggestions igot. And if anyone else has a topic they want to talk about, just throw it out there. I'll talk about anything, ain't no shame in my game.

Local Comedians-It seems like there's a growing scene of comedians in my city, which is amazing. I love stand-up comedy so much, I think it's my favourite type of performance to watch. Some of my biggest female heroes are stand up comedians; Joan Rivers is my Queen. I think getting up in front of an audience who expect you to make them laugh must be really scary and I have huge respect for anyone who is up to the challenge. I've only had the pleasure of going to one local comedy show, but it was awesome. I'm excited to take in more. I don't see myself as a potential critic for that kind of thing, so I don't necessarily know if I'd ever write about a show. But I know there's a lot going on in Hamilton and other cities around here, and I defintiely encourage people to go out and support these brave and hilarious souls.

How fucking weird the dating scene is-You know I thought about this for a bit, and realized that I don't feel like I know a whole lot about the dating scene. I've been a serial monogamist since high school. Once I start seeing someone, I'll usually try to jam them into a relationship for at least a year or two, regardless of how poor a match it is. And I'm very lucky to be on good terms with almost everyone I've dated. Except one or two notable exceptions, and I just pretend those didn't happen at all(and I'd definitely recommed that technique. It's always best to repress unpleasant memories). If you want to talk about relationships, I have lots to say. But if I were to offer any thoughts on dating I'd say just do whatever and whoever the fuck you want to do. Don't beat yourself up. Who ever really knows how people meet and why some things work out and some things don't. You're awesome. And don't bother asking people for advice, because you're not going to listen to it anyway.  Ooh, also sometimes you just gotta accept a dry spell and not stress about it. Use the time to go the gym so that you feel super hot when you do meet someone.

Clothing- I don't have a lot to say about clothing. I think I would be a lot more into it if I were super rich. I do follow and enjoy high fashion. But as it is I've been wearing the same 2 shirts in rotation for about 3 weeks now(this is a true story, ask my workmates).  I have lots of clothes, but when I find something I like, I just want to wear it all the time. I do think it's worth it to spend money on higher quality clothes, especially if you're like me and don't care that much if you look the same every day. Yeah you can go to Forever 21 (shudder) and get super trendy stuff and look cool every day, but you're basically throwing your money away. If you're into thrifting, that's a whole other story. I don't enjoy clothes shopping enough to be a thrifter, but if you do I think thats great, and I'd probably check you out and be super jealous of how cool you look.

Herbal Tea-What do I look like some kind of friggin hippy? I drink Diet Coke, coffee and water. And I only drink the water so I can feel like I'm flushing out some of the aspartame that's my biggest vice and probably killing me slowly. I don't know jack shit about herbal tea. I do collect tea pots, but I'm frontin'-they're just there for the kitsch value. Don't worry though! I do have a connect in the tea department. Heather, who designed the header for this blog is a major tea afficianado. She's currently working on bringing a travelling tea trailer to the streets of Hamilton. You can find her and her tea story HERE.

Penis- The fact that this came up as a suggestion is very telling of the kind of depraved people I associate with. This is a really big topic (well, if you're lucky). All I'm going to say right now is this: be nice to them, but don't trust them.

Holistic Treatment-This is a topic I know nothing about. BUT! Since someone suggested it maybe it's a good excuse for me to try some holistic treatments myself so that I can talk about them. See, that's why I love having a blog. It gives me a great excuse to buy things for myself. It's research.

My Escort Service-This came from a male friend of mine. I think he was trying to insult me because I was being an asshole to him, so fair enough. But I don't think it's an insult at all! AT ALL. Do you know how fucking rich I'd be if I had my own escort service? I don't look down on that kind of work. I read an article in Toronto Life last year written by an esort and it sounds like a sweet deal. I'm not here to knock anyone else's hustle. You get it girl!

Food-Actually my first attempt at blogging was a few years ago, when I had a cooking blog for a few months. The thing is that it got pretty monotonous talking about food. That's why with this blog, I didn't start out with a particular theme. Obviously makeup has become the focus, but I don't want to limit myself to that. It's easy to burn out of writing about the same thing all the time. I'd be down to write about food and cooking again. Although my eating habits have been pretty atrocious lately. I say I eat clean, which I think I do for the most part. But I live alone, so I also end up doing things like eating hot chocolate mix straight out of the can with a spoon. Does anyone want the recipe for that?

So there ya go. My thoughts on a bunch of random topics, including dick. Good thing my Mom reads this.

I like there to always be pictures, so here's one of my cat:
Always chillin'


  1. I'm sad I haven't read your blog until now- because you're fucking hilarious and I love you. Oh my god.

    1. Don't worry, I'm just getting started xoxoxoxox
