I did it. I fell for the charcoal craze. I know that it actually does help with acne; African Black Soap is one of my all time favorite products, but I also know that there’s only so much charcoal you can cram into one particular beauty item. But I bought myself pore strips regardless. I like the pore strips, even though I don’t use them super often. They’re a bit of a “treat yo’self” item; I usually have a box at home but only use them once or twice a month when the black heads are at their worst.
As many of you know, I went to the Lush Creative Showcase in London last week. It was an incredible experience, full of character versions of bath bombs, speaking sessions, and bath bombs. I didn’t buy a ton there, but I did get some things, and some ideas for what I’ll be buying once I can get to my Lush shop. So let’s get into the new Halloween line!
I have heard all about how great the Welcome to Night Vale podcast is from people all over. It’s a unique and powerful fandom, but I struggle to listen to podcasts. It’s hard for me to take in information solely aurally; i do better when I’m using multiple senses. So my boyfriend recommended that I check out the Welcome to Night Vale book; it has the same characters as the podcast, and goes through some similar points. So I grabbed it for my trip last week, and read it on the buses.
I just finished one of the greatest anime I’ve watched. It’s part of an entire series of stories, and I will for sure be continuing the stories. This one, the prequel to all that comes after, is called Fate/Zero. And it’s beautiful.
Last week I had the incredible pleasure of visiting Ireland and England with my mum. We went to Leaky Con in Ireland, attended a couple fantastic tours, and headed to England for the Warner Brothers Studio Tour (all the Potter things). A couple days before we left, I was on the LUSH UK site, and saw ads for the Creative Showcase. Thinking it was worth checking out when it was happening, I clicked and found out it would be open to the public the day before we left England! I grabbed tickets and got super pumped.
Last week I went to the bookstore in hopes of grabbing 2 or 3 books to bring with me on my trip. Since I hadn’t been to a bookstore in ages, I left with 10 books, in hopes of keeping myself happy for awhile. The first one I read is from the comedy section, and is The Book of Barb.
