CLOTHING

Whether you’re looking for your boyfriend who hates to shop, or your dad who needs a bit of style help, clothing is always an appreciated go-to. I like to stick with nice separates that they might not buy themselves.

Rocia All-Natural Skincare Review

Rocia Naturals Skincare Cleanser Toner Moisturizer Eye Souffle

Hi everyone!

I have been very interested in skincare products with natural/organic ingredients lately. I have used these for over a month without any other products to see if it makes a noticeable difference.  Before I begin; I have oily-combination skin with the occasional breakout usually around my chin or cheeks. In the winter time I tend to get a few dry patches. These products are for “all skin types” except for the moisturizer which is meant for “normal to oily skin”.

Starting with the cleanser; it is a creamy formula that does not foam up and so it feels extremely hydrating and leaves my skin feeling very soft and smooth afterwards. It has a “natural” scent, similar to the toner, that is pleasant and soft; not over-powering.

The ingredients in the toner are amazing and it smells great because of the rose, grapefruit, and lavender listed in the ingredients. I use this…

Festive Makeup Look Using Morphe 35W Palette | Tutorial

Clarina

festive-makeup-2festive-makeup-3festive makeup lookmorphe brushes 35w palette makeup

As my final YouTube upload before Christmas (I’m so, freakin’ excited), I decided to indulge in another festive look. This time, I created this very natural and daytime appropriate gold eye, red lip look using the Morphe 35W palette and MAC lip products. Did you see my other festive look? It was a collab with the ever-so-lovely Karen from Confetti and Curves, a Christmas Party Makeup Look. This new festive makeup look would be incredibly wearable on Christmas day, or for any other festivities for that matter. I seem to always go back to this look, partly because it’s so simple to create but also because I love the gold and red combo, if that doesn’t scream Christmas I don’t know what does. I kept this look very natural with no liquid liner or falsies, but go ahead and whack those on if you can’t be without.

SARUMAN’S LULLABY

The Raven's Nest

The giant mammals glide back to my shores. Lazily, darkness is drifting on the horizon and I fall asleep in front of a single flame…

In my dream the road is winding in and out of the earth, drenched in sap and iron, it tastes like blood but has the golden aspect of honey. I am in a northern forest.

As I am walking I hear her sing a lullaby up over my head. It is from a tall tree and the wind quiet down in its branches to let her voice pierce the artificial silence. I distinguish a wild woman sitting on the tallest limb. She appears to be knitting something: Is it a web of communication or a rancor trap? Her smile isn’t inviting, it has the same shiny blade as cruelty. Her eyes are turned inwards and she sees something I can’t distinguish. Contempt and intolerance carve…
