Typing that title hurts, even after explaining to others for over a year now, but yes, I’ve stopped any word to do with making my cosmetic line. After years and years of making my own batches in my childhood kitchen, researching for hours on end, designing unique packaging and trying to nail down everything I could, I stopped.
When I say I worked on it for years, it would have been around six years this year. I know, it’s a long time.
So why stop after so much effort?
I can’t believe it’s been 10 months already since I last reviewed something from Kat Von D’s line, so I guess it’s time!
Adelaide has a problem; it’s boring. Well, it’s always touted as just that. Searching the term always brings up some fun results and even one of the major radio stations back in the day, Triple J, tried to help turn it around with an “Adelaide: It’s Okay!” campaign that was hilarious and tried very hard to help Adelaide with its boring label.
It also has that “serial killer capital” label hanging around its head that even Dexter Morgan himself, Michael C. Hall, shot a promo stating it.
A place can’t be boring and an (alleged) serial killer paradise though, can it? Only if it’s so boring that’s why people are going bananas and offing each other.
Such a beautiful place to strangle someone.
I’ve been a few times to Adelaide and come back with different stories and experiences, and while my time there was only fleeting, I hope that if you do find yourself in The City Of Churches that my handy guide will help you around.
There’s been much hype for a while now about Alpha-H and their Liquid Gold product. You’ve probably seen this product on beauty blogs, sales sites like Ozsale or shopping sites like Adore Beauty, which is where I got mine from.
Yes, I grabbed one to see what it was all about.
I am someone that needs to snack, trust me when I say I love a good meal, but when it’s just me here with the cat, trying to get stuff done, I’d rather have something I can grab out of the kitchen and shove into my mouth.
I want to thank you for your patience with me lately; I’ve been promising to post regularly and keep up-to-date with my social media yet something always seems to happen.
This time, it hasn’t really been about me or my human family, but my furry family. My Furry Partner In Crime (FPIC for short) is sick. Cancer sick. I’ve been crushed since being told and have had to adjust how I spend my time as I’ve had to look after her and feed her every few hours. Even though she is a clingy little asshole, she’s my little asshole, and my days are 99% of the time spent around her. She is always near me when I plan and write my posts, take the photos, retake the photos because she’s either in it or a clump of her fur blows into the shot.
It’s been a bit of a challenge to get into a routine, but I think we’re almost there so next week I can get back to something of normality for the site… maybe a better normality with some actual content!
So please keep her in your thoughts, please share if you’ve been through something similar with your furry ones, and thank you for coming to see us every day
Massive amounts of love,
L & FPIC 🐾
