I’m finding it really hard to concentrate on almost everything these days. I can’t focus on a movie and I’ve found myself eyeing tv episode run times and if I can either squeeze in an episode of one of the 1000 things I want to watch, or if it’ll turn into background music as I start looking at something on my phone… or you know, disassociate.
I’ve started to rely on YouTube content more than ever. The videos are shorter and sometimes that small shot of something is more entertaining than having to try to concentrate for 50 minutes. I know, the attention span of a gnat.
So when my brain is stupid-tired or even if I need something to zone out to, these are the three channels The Evil Assistant and I go to (if we agree on something, we cherish it).
The best beauty discoveries are the ones that plop into your lap, and this is exactly what happened with these peel pads by Naturally Serious.
It’s been a damn doozy of a year, hasn’t it? What’re some of the stuff we’ve done around here? Well…
This year we made a lot of food, starting with sweet and savoury chickpeas to snack on and our personal favourite around here, Feta Me Meli for some sweet and crispy feta goodness. We also kept the sweet treat train going with three-ingredient mousse and apple galettes. Look I’m not one to toot my own horn but TOOT-DAMN-TOOT these apple galettes are so damn good, especially with maple. But let’s not forget Halloween month where we worked with apples again and made black caramel apples then a spooky platter with sweet, salty and savoury to enjoy before topping it off with some Bat Outta Meatloaf.
Speaking of Halloween, we also did some fancy nail effects- reptilian, dragonlike scale claw nails and branded/scorched ‘cross’ nails. I also shared some of the US-based places I’d love to go to for Halloween!
We also started a YouTube channel of the highest quality! It included a little summer makeup chuck, kit or keep and reviews of Sephora’s Gimme Some Lip pack and a Brand Spotlight of FLOWER Beauty. Not only did we do another review, this time for NARS lipstick pencils, but we also listed some realistic ways to take some years off (if you so feel the need to) and just posted a simple skincare routine.
Yes, I also had to share my love of Marvel by reviewing Sephora’s awesome brushes and giving some [read: ranting] theories on who would live vs die in Avengers: Endgame – and some I was actually right about!
Finally, I nudged you to try to use Pinterest’s secret boards and cooed over the Peace Island game, which is where I got the cute postcards from above!
One of our last posts this year was to give you some tips in summer blackouts, but really for any blackouts. Unfortunately, I was editing the post just as we were devastated by fires here in eastern Australia. The toll on every part of life here has been affected, including animals and their homes. You might have heard how Lewis the koala had to be put down because of his burns along with half of the koala population in Port Macquarie have died and 80% of their habitat destroyed. While they aren’t “functionally extinct” yet, as previously stated, they do need our help and a great way you can bring awareness or donate is to the Australian Koala Foundation, the Koala Hospital in Port Macquarie and Koalas In Care.
This is the last from us for 2019! We’ll be back in January 2020 with some new stuff, so for any updates and ramblings, follow us on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. Stay safe, eat well and we’ll see you in 2020!
Be surprised! This isn’t a sponsored or affiliated post, I’m just going to annoy you with how beneficial Pinterest’s ‘secret boards’ are. If you don’t have Pinterest or think it’s for drunk baby boomer mums to collect “Live, Laugh, Love” logos for stamping, you’re missing out. It’s a great way to virtually collect and catalogue anything you could ever imagine, saving paper and ink on physical boards and also room on your computer. As you can see from our official Pinterest page, we use it to put our own articles onto Pinterest as well as save anything we find anywhere online and the site itself.
What you might not know is that you can create super secret boards; ones only you or whomever you invite, can see and contribute to.
Here are some uses for those boards, including some of my own!
That’s all you really need to know, isn’t it? An open-world game is about about a group of cats on a remote Maine island that try to figure out where the hell the humans have disappeared to.
I cannot stress how insanely excited I am right now.
Tomorrow at 8am, along with many others, I will see Avengers: Endgame. This is the end and my head has been on constant Charlie Day, Always Sunny Conspiracy mode for the past year but hooo boy has it been amped up in the last few days.
I thought it’s best time to
rant oh god I don’t want to see it anymore this has been part of my life for ten years and can’t everyone be happy just god be happy talk about some theories I have and who I think might live or, ugh, die in this last Avengers movie.
Even though I saw those first leaked set pictures from a while ago, any theories pertaining to it will be down the very bottom in white text you must highlight to see [like this! Hi!]. Other than theories pertaining to that, this post won’t have any spoilers; this is just my ramblings from what I know from the comics and have been and what have stuck out to me from previous movies, like I did on this post.
