St. Ives Mineral Clay Mask.Apricot Scrub.Green Tea Scrub

Hi everyone,

These St.Ives scrubs and mask are very useful for deep cleaning your skin as well as prepping it for makeup. My face makeup has looked so much better since I discovered these and I will forever repurchase them!

Starting with the Mineral Clay Firming Mask; it is a cooling thick formula which pleasantly smells like mint. It claims to visibly firm and tighten skin however, I don’t notice much firming after the application since I do not have sagging skin to begin with. I do notice that it deep cleans my pores; it seems to clean out most of my blackheads and my skin feels very smooth after using this just once. It starts to dry after 5-10 minutes and about 10-15 minutes I rinse it off with warm water. I use this once a week usually on the weekends so that there is no left-over makeup in…

rocking a frock

the fashion huntress


We all know by now that I’m a dreamer who has a borderline questionable relationship to clothing and fashion, so it’s no surprise that when I thrifted this dreamy vintage frock (oh yeah, it’s a frock), I heard it calling out that it wanted to be worn and be loved anew. It’s perhaps one of the oddest prints I’ve seen in a while. The fabric print was dubbed the following: dreamsicle gardens, aboreteum wonderland, neon wee villageland, and polyester pink fairyland by various friends. I’m not sure what this pattern was called back when it was made, but one thing is for sure, this vintage frock lives to twirl another day.

Walmart Beauty Box Fall 2015

Looking Joli Good

Did you know that Walmart has it’s own a subscription beauty box?  Yup, they do!  It is a quarterly box and only costs $5 a season.  Generally the box will have around 5 samples, with 1 or 2 of them being full sized products.  Also in your Walmart Beauty Box, you’ll find smaller sample beauty products, coupons, and tips on how to use them.  Your order will include a wide selection of trusted Beauty brands.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen the picture that I posted the other day of my fall beauty box.  I am loving the Neutrogena mascara! The Dove deodorant smells so wonderful. If you don’t follow me on Instagram, you should 😉

Walmart technically calls it a “sample box” and says that the box itself is free and the $5 is a flat rate for shipping and…

Indian troops, Arakan Peninsula, Burma Indian troops, Arakan Peninsula, Burma

17-31 March – The Japanese 55th Division and other units launched a 3-pronged attack on the Arakan Peninsula in Burma.  The Indian troops pulled back and discontinued their offensive.  The Chindits were defeated by massive enemy fighting and this set off an epic journey of 1,000 miles (1600 km) through Burma for the men to reach safety.

Wingate’s retreat, 150 miles of which was in the Irrawaddy, a heavily patrolled area by the 15th Japanese Army under Lt.Gen. Renya Mutaguchi.  The Chindits would lose approximately 500 men during this march.  Gen. Slim called the entire operation “an expensive failure” but the British press dubbed Wingate a hero and calling him the “Clive of Burma.”


27 March – in the Bering Sea, Adm. Hosogaya Boshiro’s escort force of 4 cruisers and 4 destroyers attempted to run reinforcements to the Aleutian Islands.  The Naval Intelligence failed to…
