Five for Friday | BEDA Day 8

I’ll be honest with y’all, today has been hard blogging-wise. I’m kind of hard up for ideas and don’t have a ton of time for a more in-depth post. So in light of this general Friday-ness, here are five things I’ve been digging this week.

Floss Gloss Nail Polish in Honey

I’m an adult with a full-time job, so naturally I decided to throw some glitter nail polish on last night. I like to think I did it in an attempt to manifest the party for this weekend, since I’ve been a bit of a hermit this past week. I picked up Floss Gloss’s Honey last year at the BUST Craftacular Primped event, but I hadn’t actually used it until last night. I’m kind of obsessed now. It took a few coats, but it looks really nice even without another color underneath. Unfortunately, Honey is sold out on their website, but Floss Gloss has a ton of other fun colors to check out. The best part? All their nail polishes are 4 Free (formulated without Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Toluene, Formaldehyde & Formaldehyde Resin) and cruelty free. *throws glitter*

Sephora’s Love Note Shopping Event

Head’s up, makeup hoarders: if you’re a member of Sephora’s Beauty Insider loyalty program, there’s a sale going on JUST FOR Y’ALL now through Wednesday, April 13th. VIB Rouge members get 15% off with the code ROUGENOTE, VIB members get 15% off with the code VIBNOTE, and Beauty Insiders get 10% off with the code BINOTE. I already stocked up on some dwindling products this morning. So much for saving money this weekend. (P.S., don’t forget to shop with Ebates* for 4% cash back!)

The Path

If you know me, you know I have a (totally healthy) fascination with cults. I find them incredibly interesting from a psychological point of view and have a tendency to fall down a Wikipedia rabbit hole researching cults gone awry. When I first heard about The Patha new series on Hulu about a growing “movement” in Upstate New York (why are they always in Upstate New York?), I knew I had to check it out. The show hasn’t disappointed so far, bringing great performances from Aaron Paul, Michelle Monaghan, and Hugh Dancy. Hulu releases a new episode every Wednesday, so I can’t properly binge it, but I can’t wait to see where the series goes from here.

If you haven’t noticed (which you probably haven’t), I updated my “About” page and added an FAQ! If you’re new around here, I’d suggest giving them a look-see. I also added Disqus to make comments a little easier.

Speaking of comments, what are you excited about this weekend? Let me know below!

The “Me Time” Tag

What do you do to get out of a video-making rut? Film a tag video, of course! I do love a good tag video. They give me structure when I’m at a loss for ideas and want to make a more conversational video. Plus, I just like to see how everyone responds to the questions. It’s like hanging out with your girlfriends (who don’t always necessarily know who you are) (is that weird?).

Anyway, check out the video above to see how I spend my “Me Time.” I woke up early yesterday to record this, so the fact that it exists on the internet is kind of a miracle. I’ve realized that I’m somehow more productive in the morning, so maybe this whole “waking up early” thing will become a regular part of my routine. Not holding my breath, though.
