K-Beauty Review: The Creme Shop Yogurt Modeling Mask




Hello there viewers! It's been a hot minute since I've done something silly and trivial like a beauty product review but here we are. I actually used this one up before we moved, because the packaging on this thing was just too clunky to want to pack away with the rest of my skin care stuff.

Behold, the yogurt cup face mask.



After tearing off the lid and inside cover, you find a dubious white powder and a mixing stick. The instructions are to fill water to inside line and mix quickly into a creamy consistency. Sounds simple enough.



Wrong.



I clearly added too much water. Oops. So with a texture decidedly more watery than creamy I slathered as much of it as was comfortable onto my skin. It dried to a nice flaky mess on my face while I lounged (for the last time!) in my claw foot tub.





Also, I was supposed to peel it off, not rinse it. Again, this was my mistake. I'm pretty sure I still got the collagen boost this thing was advertising but maybe the aftermath on my face would have felt a little smoother if I had just followed the dang instructions! 



Would I try this mask again? Yes, probably. But there's so much product in here that I would need to share with another person in order to not waste it. Any volunteers?

  1. The consistency looks a little strange, but it seems like it has good ingredients. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it as much as you hoped.

Q&A: get to know me!

This is a pre-planned post since I'm elbows-deep in the NaNoWriMo hellscape at the moment. I likely won't be responding to comments with any regularity during this period. Please be patient with me! 
What is the first thing that you notice when meeting someone new?
I tend to pick up on people's vibes and their energy - that often comes through in how they carry themselves, how they speak, if they maintain eye contact, etc. I don't really notice details about a person right away, which is why I'm terrible with names and eye colors!
Are you an indoor or outdoor person?
Oh, most definitely an indoor person. Whether it's allergies, bugs or adverse weather conditions, I'm not a huge fan of being outside. Ideally, I'd love to spend my days lounging outside in peace...but the reality is that bees, hornets, and other people exist.
What did you do on your most recent birthday?
I turned 31 last month actually and it was an awful day. Not only was I battling a cold, I a…

November Is Adopt a Senior Cat Month!

Last month, we lost our family cat Sassy. She had been with us for 16.5 years and though she was a senior cat, her loss was sudden and unexpected - you see, Sassy really lived up to her name. The girl had an attitude, she was talkative, and she loved head scritches - on her terms, naturally.


When most people adopt a cat, they're looking for a feline that's young, spry, and full of energy. Kittens and cats at 1-2 years of age have that in spades and require a lot of time, patience, and maintenance.
I don't know about you, but I work a full time job. I'm also a chronically ill "spoonie" that doesn't have a lot of time for playing the part of a rain forest tree as my furry companion pretends to be the fiercest panther in all the land. I appreciate a lap cat, someone who will keep me company while I'm parked at my computer - working on blog posts, fiction writing, editing, or just escaping the harsh realities of life via Youtube.

Senior cats are often pe…

The Homogenizing Aesthetic of the Millennial Lifestyle Blogger

I'm beginning to notice something very eerie as I pop in and out of the latest taprooms and coffee bars near St. Paul's Lowertown. It's something that brings to mind the homogenized horror of George Orwell's 1984 or the minimalist set-designs of 2001, A Space Odyssey. It's unsettling. It's disturbing. It's disorienting. Didn't I just leave this place?

Generic Coffee Shop Generic Taproom
Reclaimed wood bars and tables. Nondescript and uncomfortable chairs. Exposed brick and duct-work. Lots of tall windows. A chalkboard menu. Avocado toast and craft beer.

I'm sure you can think of at least one place you've visited recently that has this exact vibe to it, right? I used to think this kind of aesthetic was neat - it was very open and bright and simple. Your focus was on the people around you, the menu, your drink. The experience.

Now, I can't seem to find a place that doesn't look like this.

I think I'd kill for a good, old-fashioned, mom-…
