Who Am I?

🦄

I'm a left-handed redhead. Probably rarer than a unicorn.

Hello, I'm Mykki! 

I'm an American-based blogger in my early thirties and I've been running On The Cusp for a few years now. It used to be called Sp00ky University and if you're good at sleuthing you'll find some old posts from its previous incarnation. (But don't, please....they're old and therefore terrible!)

I went to Saint Cloud State University for Linguistics, spurred on by a love of writing and wordsmithery, and a desire to increase my overall understanding of how language works and its importance in human communication. Running this blog as a student was a wonderful creative outlet and a way for this introverted human to share their interests and lifestyle with people around the world. 

Now I'm an #adult and doing adult things, so this blog has become something of a niche-less lifestyle hodgepodge. I'd say there's likely something for everyone, even for those who just want to argue with me. (For that, check out my Unpopular Opinion posts!)

Holiday Gift Guide: For Everyone

So we've tackled Gifts for Her and Gifts for Him, but we can't forget about everyone else on your list! Hopefully, these five gift idea will be perfect for that hard to befriend coworker, your estranged uncle or that member of your friend group who's gender identity is a little bit ambiguous. 
There are also some fun stocking stuffer ideas below! 



1. You know what I wish someone would get me, just once? A yummy gift basket and a holiday-themed mug - like this one and this one from Target! There's something really cozy about this type of seasonal gift, and I use cute mugs like this long past the holidays so they definitely see some use!





2. A lipstick-sized portable battery charger for a phone - like this affordable one from Amazon!  - fits nicely inside a purse or a pocket, so it's the perfect gift for your cousin who's always playing Pokemon Go (is that still a thing?) I really can't think of anyone who wouldn't benefit from one of these - except maybe…

Wishtrend's #thegoodpackage Review

Quite a few of my favorite Youtubers have been 'repping' this company and their products lately (like Sharmander and Caricakes - who also have their own affiliate boxes) and after reading a ton of reviews about their Green Tea Powder Wash and the Vitamin C Serum I knew I had to check it out.

So, one afternoon, during a boring work shift, I popped onto their website to see what was up. And this limited-time deal struck my fancy: #thegoodpackage for $80 containing only cruelty-free products w/ proceeds going to an animal charity.

How could I say no?


So what is Wishtrend?

Basically, Wishtrend is a retailer in Korea that offers their in-house brand along with a few other ethical beauty brands. They have select locations in Korea, but ship worldwide. Frequently they have package deals you can buy, such as the one I purchased, and they tend to be great deals since you get a ton of freebies with them.

Wishtrend also partners with influencers, as I mentioned above, and you can get a lo…

BIRCHBOX July 2018 Unboxing + Review

When the concept of beauty subscriptions first crossed into my awareness, I was honestly torn between Birchbox and Ipsy - there were pros and cons for both. At the time, I was looking to beef up my makeup stash so I initially settled on Ipsy and that was a good run while it lasted (I'll be getting my last bag with them in August) but then they had their anti-trans snafu during Pride Month and I couldn't, in good conscience, stick with 'em.

So a couple of coworkers tell me how much they like Birchbox and that I should give it a go if I'm more into hair and skincare products these days. Which I am. So here we are:

Oribe is one of those brands that is both beloved by hair stylists and too expensive to justify, especially since I rarely do any styling to my hair. However, I'…
