Hi, friends.

It's 11:16 p.m. and I'm home alone and I've finished my work for the day, so basically I'm lying in bed, listening to music and casually browsing the interwebs (as per usual) so I thought, why not make a blog post?

I've done a few "favorite songs" playlists, but it's been a while since I've done one, so I figured I'd do one again.

Basically, here's 10 songs I've had on repeat for the past few weeks.

1. Matilda | alt-j 
I heard this out of the blue on Spotify radio and I haven't been able to stop listening to it. It's been stuck in my head for the past few days, and so far I'm not sick of it.

2. papaoutai | Stromae
My beautiful roommate Paige listens to French music as she studies and sends me weird songs she thinks I'll like. This is one of them.

3. Alexandra | Hamilton Leithauser
"I don't think back, I don't need to / But I'm always thinking of you, Alexandra"
Umm, helloooooo, they're literally singing my own name into my ears over and over. Thanks, Hamilton!

4. Crown On The Ground | Sleigh Bells
Makes me feel like I should be off somewhere causing trouble.

5. Take Me to Church | Hozier 
I've been listening to this for a few weeks, but I just watched the haunting music video for the first time. God damn.

6. San Francisco | The Mowgli's
Just a random, happy, driving-in-the-summer song.

7. Wait | M83
I first heard this in the end credits of The Fault in Our Stars movie. So good. Now, it makes me wanna cry because of the emotional trauma that movie causes.

8. Matches | Koji
Another good driving song, but more of a "I'm in my car alone and want to sing along" way.

9. Sun | Two Door Cinema Club
The chorus of this song is so catchy! This is another song that gets stuck in my head really easily.

10. Twin Size Mattress | The Front Bottoms
"With tears in my eyes, I begged you to stay / You said, 'Hey man, I love you, but no fucking way.'"
Angry music. So good.

What are you listening to? I want to know. Help me find new music, plz.

Hello, world!

While looking for inspiration, I stumbled upon Mandy Leigh's list of "50 Blog Posts Ideas." Blog-writer's block is a real thing and I'm definitely feeling it.

So, I looked at this list of 50 ideas and the one that stuck out most was to write about 10 things your readers don't know about you. (P.S. — Mandy, if you read this, thank you for that post! You're great!)

I love reading about other people's quirks and other things that the world may not know. Part of the challenge is also to tag other bloggers to write the same post! So, without further adieu, here are 10 things you may (or may not) know about me.

My hair isn't this color anymore. Don't be deceived.

Hello, all!

This post comes in two parts: one part gawking about makeup, one part gawking about kitten.

Here is part one: The June Ipsy Glambag Review.

I've been an Ipsy Glambag subscriber for a few months now, and I've had a lot of hits and a lot of misses. If you don't know what Ipsy is, it's a service that sends you a bag of 4-5 makeup/beauty/other products every month for $10. My first glambag was worth around $60, and I've been hooked ever since. Last month's May glambag was very... underwhelming to say the least, but Ipsy really redeemed themselves with this month's picks, or at last for me.

First of all, when you get your Ipsy glambag, it arrives in your mailbox in a shiny pink bubble envelope. That bubble envelope is usually the mail highlight of my month (unless I order something else online) because it's so friggin' cute.

I don't have a photo of all my products together. Sorry 'bout it.
