Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper – Shallow

Never saw the movie and absolutely zero interest in watching it…

However, last night I heard Bryan Callen butchering this song on The Fighter and The Kid (podcast he co-hosts with Brenden Schaub) and despite myself, was kinda’ curious.

So, I looked it up on YouTube and literally started crying (I’m talking full on crying) as soon as the song began playing! It was instant! Start video. Ensue tears. Needless to say, I’m seriously feeling this song at the moment!

I used to like Gaga’s music when she coming up, but sorta’… outgrew her.

I thought Bradley Cooper was pretty funny in the Hangover movies, but fell in love with him after the movie Limitless.

Coincidentally, Bryan Callen was also in one of the Hangover movies. More recently, when I saw Joker a few months ago at the movies, I clocked Bryan Callen as one of the clowns. Not gonna’ lie, I got pretty excited and pointed him about, but once again, none of my people had a clue what I was talking about (I need new people. People who watch/listen to Podcasts at the very least).

Anyways, Shallow is a beautiful song and I definitely recommend giving it a listen!

1st Morphe Makeup Brush Haul

On December 1st, I placed my first online order with Morphe!

I used to eye up their eyeshadows, back when they were just $2 each, but never actually ordered anything from them. I saw them grow and grow as a company, but wasn’t really tempted to purchase anything… until they released the Morphe X Brittany Bear 360 Nose Contour Collection.

However, rather than purchase it for full price, I decided to patiently wait for a sale or some sort of promo. At the time of my order, they had a 25% Off coupon code, which I used. Since this was my first time ordering from them, I decided to pick up a few (well, just the two) Makeup Items, while the rest were all Makeup Brushes (x20 individual ones) that I’d been lusting after.

The layout of their site was easy to navigate, had realistic photos that you could zoom in on and helpful reviews left by other customers.

The subtotal of my order was $114 with free shipping, plus an additional $10.16 for tax adding up to $124.16 in total.

Aside from the box that they came in getting a bit banged up, everything arrived safely intact.

I figured since I’d just recently posted photos of my hair a month after that horrible dye job (dis), why not post photos the day after?

Obviously, I’d seen my hair after that woman had destroyed it, but that was during night-time and in artificial lighting. The morning after, outdoors and in natural sunlight, I took one look at my hair color and let out a colorful stream of expletives. Not to beat a dead horse, but I payed a lot of money for dry and frizzy hair (my hair is still mad at me since that incident) and worst of all, that looked nothing like the ashy-blonde that I’d asked for (and shown them pictures of, from their own Instagram account lol)

It might sound like I might be exaggerating for effect, so I figure a picture is worth a thousand words ergo here ya’ go! That said, it’s not really that big of a deal. It’s just hair. I’m glad I went through with it anyway, because it confirmed the fact that as I’m getting older, I much prefer darker hair on myself.

1st US Bath and Body Works Scentportable Haul

These are the Scentportables that I purchased in my 1st US Bath & Body Works Online Order (dis)!

Scentportables aka Car Fragrances retail for $3.50, but there was a 3 for $9 “deal” on them. Locally, they retail for KD 1/500 (which converts to almost $5) each. Chew on that.

While in Kuwait I could only spot Endless Weekend (pass) and Rose Water & Ivy (definite pass) and that God-forsaken Sweet Pea (why is this scent still around?) on the US site they had all the scents and way more Scentporable Clips in all kinds of different designs! I was spoiled (spoilt?) for choice!

Seeing as how hot it could get in Kuwait during the summer, I didn’t wanna’ get anything that I might find irritating with time. Eventually, I went with x2 Vanilla Bean Noel (tried and true favorite in most forms) and a single Campsite Coffee (because… coffee, baby)! Not sure where each collection was from, but I know for a fact that Vanilla Bean Noel is part of the Holiday Traditions Collection that they release every Winter.
