Happy Birthday to the Candy Man

In honor of my father’s birthday, I give to you the video we shot 7 (SEVEN!) years ago on all things candy. Happy Birthday to the coolest, funniest, smartest man I know…a man that can stock a mean candy drawer.


I’m Down With The 3-Minute Face

Beautycounter just introduced the 3-minute face, and I am quite intrigued, ladies. You know I’m a fan of fast makeup looks, and the way Beautycounter has set this up makes it foolproof!

First, you choose your skin tone.


I chose “Light.”


Once your skin tone is picked, a great set of custom-picked makeup for your coloring pops up, and best of all, the bundle is priced at a discount. Oh, heyyyyyy.


(I recently posted a tutorial using many of the above products, if you are interested.)

Finally, there are videos on the website showing you how to apply each and every product.


You get all 5 products for $125, instead of the normal price of $195. Um, it’s kind of the best thing ever.

You can check out your personalized 3-minute face here. While supplies last! Questions about any of the products? Hit me up in the comments – I’ve tried them all!


Odds and Ends


1. These transcribed love letters from 70 years ago are so lovely.

2. Women over 40 be like. Ha!

3. “Currently helping my son search for his chocolate that I ate last night.” These parenting tweets are pretty good.

4. Holy hilarity – Melissa McCarthy kills it lip syncing. (Just skip to the last song if you are short on time.)

5. Kids who sold out their parents. The first drawing might hit home with some of you.

6. What overthinking looks like. Hahaaaa.

7. Classic childhood books with slight tweaks to the titles. I truly laughed out loud several times.

8. Adult coloring books are causing a colored pencil shortage. I think I probably contributed to that.

9. This maxi dress is fabulous. I’ve seen it in person, and it’s such a great deal! (And the colors!)

10. Did you know about the other hidden message inbox on Facebook? Whoah, there are a lot.

11. What happens to your body when you stop using conventional beauty products. Yep.

Happy weekend to all of you!
