I love getting mail

I have oily skin. Like, really gross oily skin. Wash in the morning, and it feels like oil is dropping down your face by noon. I’ve avoided makeup because of this. But truth is, I love some makeup. 

Well, I finally found a delightful face wash made specially for people like me. It’s the Biore charcoal face wash. Then, I invested in a decent moisturizer specially for people with oily skin, and I immediately noticed an improvement. 

Which prompted me to seek out primer. 

Can I just pause and admit, I haven’t warn makeup in so long this whole primer thing was a mystery. But, I did some research, and I found some good suggestions. And I promptly took myself to Sephora because I wanted samples before committing. 
The lovely girl offered a sample of Dr Brandt’s Pores No More. And she gave me sample of Murad moisturizer. 

Well, I recently joined Ipsy, and I got a Trust Fund Beauty primer, too. 

Which to use? 

I’m sold on the Murad and Dr Brandt’s combination. I don’t care if it’s more expensive. It’s worth it. 

I also bought some new mascara. That haul came in the mail today. I’m like a kid in a candy store! 


I’m not sure what to do with the salve, but I bought it anyway. 

Eventually, I will get up a better review, and maybe some pics.

Hello gorgeous…

Weather, that is. I absolutely love October, and not just because my birthday is this month either. No, I just love fall. 

And winter, yes. 

To update, writing progresses at the pace of the proverbial snail. I hope to have a plot outlined by the end of the month. Or, you know, a workable idea. 

Ugh. 

In the meantime, my word prompts have doubled as the lovely ladies who brought us the September challenge also brought us one for October. 

I’m handling it so far. 


I just hope I’m not wasting my time! 

I have moved the book from Christmas to Halloween. Then, there will be a thanksgiving murder, and a Christmas one, too. 

I like themes, what can I say? 

Still Writing

Ok, so it’s not #NaNoWriMo, but I accomplished a THING, you guys. 

You know, a thing. 

A goal. A writing goal, at that. 

In September, I set a goal to do the #writeastorychallenge. One word prompt, minimum two sentences. I told myself, everything had to be relevant to my current project. 

And I did it. 


I don’t know how to flip that, sorry. 

Yeah, that’s 30 scenes started. 

It doesn’t look like those same people are doing one for October, so I created my own. 


I can’t wait to start getting things in order! I’m going to be going through the plot in a few weeks – in that super brief period between class endings and beginnings. 

I’d love if you joined me! I’ll be on Twitter as @beautifulsadist and Instagram as @lauramichaela.author.
