|Me in a nutshell||
I’m a blogger who’s obsessed with ridiculously affordable makeup. I also obsess over other things. Most things, actually.
Makeup, nail polish, perfume, coffee, tea, delicate pastries, crafty projects, film, books, music, politics, puppies, the smell of a newborn baby’s head, and lots of other things.

|eat, drink, be merry: Tell us your go to meal||
My go-to meal is garbanzo bean tacos: 1 can garbanzos, 1 packet taco seasoning and cook as you would ground meat (cook the beans a little, add the packet and water, let simmer). Spoon onto corn tortillas and add cheese, cilantro, diced onion and sour cream. YUM.
