i missed you, lover.
boycott valentine's day
When I say “boycott” I don’t mean I’m going to stand on street corners protesting against this “holiday” or buying roses to cover them in black paint, but I refuse to celebrate valentine’s day by buying into the ridiculous phenomenon. And here’s why: Valentine’s day is nothing but a corporate money-grab. It’s not really a holiday,...
Alberta College of Pharmacists is trying to ban...
From what I understand, 70% of Albertan pharmacists are trying to ban customers and patients from earning loyalty program points when refilling their prescriptions (i.e. Airmiles at Safeway, Optimum points at Shoppers) since apparently some people are tempted to put off their refills until they can get them all on the same day and get extra points and it apparently discourages them from using...
just a thought
I have this theory about guys. And girls. And relationships. And cheating. And how everyone, including myself, is dissatisfied with relationships and stuff. The other day I was hanging out with a friend, smoked a joint in my living room, had good chats, you know, typical lazy Sunday . We were both baked and tired, and it was getting late so I was ready to go to bed but before he headed home we...
kevin fenton must die
I’ve got a story to tell y’all today. Unfortunately this story doesn’t happen to be the best one, and it also happens to be mine. Quite frankly, I can only roll my eyes at it for so long and I need to purge this shit out of my system, once and for all. [[MORE]] So back in May, I started talking to this dude. Kevin. A pleasant-lookin’ fella, undoubtedly. Trouble is, he...
There are interpretations that suggest the Little Mermaid did not give up...– The Little Mermaid (Hans Christian Andersen) Wikipedia
word of advice to all people out there:
whoever you are, whoever you might be, do what you want but for fuck’s sake, don’t “babe”* more than one person at a time. just don’t do it. (* - or whatever your equivalent for “babe” may be - point is, if you’ve got one person that has your affection, don’t cheapen them by handing it out to anyone and everyone, and if they’re no...
lethalmutation: I CANT BREATHE FUCK
Why is it that when the tables finally turn, they’re always off-beat? Good things are always followed by a kick in the ass; stagnancy feels like forward movement; honest progress feels like regression in some ways. Sometimes, the head and the heart don’t run side-by-side. Sometimes, the right doors open but it is the wrong people that are walking through them. Sometimes, the right...

hi, I'm 20 now
after weekend shenanigans with kevin in st. albert, car troubles, and settling into my new full-time job I feel about 100 years old and exhausted as hell, but I wouldn’t want it any other way. besides, when my mom was celebrating her 20th birthday, I was a 5-month-old devil baby crying and pooping all over the place. I think my favourite thing about turning this age is having a completely...
2012 is turning out to be one manic-depressive...
That’s okay though, ‘cause that’s just how I like ‘em.
This Pussy Riot story is amazing. →
coketalk: Seriously, when the Russian government puts your girl punk band on trial for “hooliganism,” you know you’re doing something right.
Last night at the Brand New concert was one of the best I’ve had in a little while and when Jesse Lacey sang Play Crack The Sky at the beginning of the end of the show I felt the heaviest boots in the whole wide world.
LUSH 30 Day Challenge - Day 18
LUSH is extremely notorious for being a very ethical company in terms of their sourcing and campaigning, as well as all the green initiatives they take for their packaging. The fact that all products are 100% vegetarian and 80% are vegan plus that all the solid products are preservative-free attracts many people as well. Are LUSH’s ethics the reason why you use LUSH products? Well, I...
Lush 30 Day Challenge - Day 17
What areas of the products available that you haven’t dived into at all? What’s holding you back? The only things I haven’t tried are the shampoo bars and the steamer tabs. The shampoo bars have a really simple soap base, which is not a bad thing, but that would send my hair colour going down the drain. And the steamer tabs - I really don’t know why I haven’t tried...
LUSH 30 Day Challenge - Day 16
Favourite Gorilla perfume that you’ve tried? Vanillary is my all time fave, but I’m currently waiting on my Yuzu & Cocoa, American Cream and B-side exclusives. Lust is also a lovely, lovely scent but is smells weird on me, so I spray it on my clothes. But until I have the rest, Vanillary, Vanillary and more Vanillary for me! Vanilla, Tonka bean absolute and a hint of Jasmine...
Things that are exciting:
working at Chinook Centre LUSH because that mall is full of hot guys are rich people as opposed to frugal soccer moms at my actual store if I work there again tomorrow I can buy my emotional brilliance (finally!!!) there tomorrow along with Waving Not Drowning gift, which has TWO discontinued products in it, including my beloved, long-lost, BATHOS!!! Chinook mall also has a Papyrus store, and I...
LUSH 30 Day Challenge - Day 15
What is you must-have-on-hand-at-all-times product that you might die without? Both Breath of Fresh Air toner and Grease Lightning are crucial, along with Light Pink colour supplement and Emotional Brilliance face powder. If I go somewhere overnight or longer, these guys are coming with me. And here’s why: at some point, my make-up will have to come off. And then come back on. And these...
LUSH 30 Day Challenge - Day 14
Do you use the designated LUSH tins for any of your products? I don’t! But I should since I melted a Wiccy Magic Muscles when I was living in a townhouse with a really stuffy hot bathroom! For some odd reason, the heat vent was underneath the bathroom sink cabinet so entire bottom of that cabinet was being heated up, and when it came the time to move… I had nothing but a yellow bag...
Lush 30 Day Challenge - Day 13
Do you use hair masks, foot treatment products, or face masks regularly? What’s your ultimate at-home LUSH spa night? I use fresh face masks twice a week. They can’t be sold to customers if they’re too close to the expiration date, so I usually can get them for free. Here are my favourites and why: BB Seaweed is my new go-to because I don’t really have any skin concerns...
things are alright
I have no groceries because I kept procrastinating, but according to grocery emails, pizza and blueberries are on sale tomorrow and those are my favourites so that’s quite aw-right’ My weekends have been tuesday-wednesday recently, so I get to relax when everyone’s working away, and that’s alright I got a free Sacred Truth face mask right when I needed one, and...
