Hump Day: 6/1/2011

Hooray! I finally got this out.  I was also at Nordstrom Rack today, and while the clothing prices were not that good, there was a small shelf of Too Faced stuff at awesome prices.  I got two lip glosses: Mirror Shine in ‘I Love Myself’ and Girls Dig Pearls in ‘Tropical Pink’.  I dig them, so I’ll probably do a review with some swatches this week.  Yay!

Got the first half of my finals done today… 97/100.  I can live with that.

I’ll do my EOTW look tomorrow… got too late, and I’m exhausted.

Song of the Week:

Yes, more Adele.  Because she’s amazing.  This is probably my favorite song on the album now… someday I’ll get around to doing a review of it, but it’s genius.

Video of the Week:

This is the straightest thing I’ve ever seen.


Product of the Week:


This stuff is amazing.  Honestly, I love the ‘Yes to…’ brand so far, I haven’t been disappointed by anything yet.  The cucumber wipes are probably my favorite product from them, but this shampoo gets special mention this week as it is one of the first shampoos I’ve ever tried that actually works for me for an extended period of time.  Usually my hair ‘gets used’ to the shampoo, and stops working… and my hair gets all oily.  But I’ve been using this stuff for 2+ months now, and I haven’t had that happen.

I also don’t like to buy any products that have been tested on animals, or buy from a company that tests on animals period.  To the best of my knowledge, they don’t.  (That means buying the expensive detergent and stuff from the organic section, LOL. 😦 )

Gaming, Etc:

  • For those who aren’t on my Facebook, I am now on a ‘No Buy’ for video games.  I have about 8-10 games that I haven’t beaten yet… so I’m going to beat them before I get a new game.  (Except for OoT 3D, of course.  I can’t not get that game.)  This is unfortunate, because one of my friend’s has L.A. Noire, and I got to try it out the other day… and it’s ridiculously fun.  I only got to do a couple cases, but I enjoyed it.  I’m hilariously bad at driving.
  • On THAT note, I’m finally making my way through The Witcher.  I’m unsure as to how I feel about it yet.  I need to get farther in.  The english voice acting is pretty terrible ( I switched it to Polish, the original language), and the combat system is clunky, from what I’ve heard from friends is that the story more than makes up for it.  We’ll see!
  • I’m also playing through Dragon Age 2.  Yes, again.  How can I resist this face?


  • I’m a bit late on the wagon, but if you want to donate to Japan relief efforts, there is a pretty cool way to do: Cosplay for a Cause.  A bunch of well known Cosplayers got together and put together a 2012 caldender: 100% of the proceeds go to the Japanese Red Cross Society.  You can pre-order it now for 17.99.

I seem to be putting a LoZ image in these posts every week.

  • Since all of my favorite shows have ended, there really isn’t anything interesting on TV to me right now, besides GoT.  And that is ending soon.  Trueblood starts June 26th however, and I’m pretty excited about that.  I’ve read all the books, and I know what’s coming. 😀  It’s a great book, let’s just say.  I hope they stick somewhat close to it in certain parts. 😉  Other than that, I’ve saved Supernatural to watch this summer.  And I may finish Being HumanAny other good shows that you guys recommend?   I needz new blood!
  • Movies wise, this summer is shaping up to look pretty good.  I’m excited for X-Men: First Class.  I have a bunch of movies I need to catch up on, I still haven’t seen the newest Harry Potter movie.

That’s it for this week!  But I have a lot of stuff planned!  MANY WHELPS! HANDLE IT!


Hump Day: 5/18/2011

Hurray!  My EOTW took WAY longer than I expected it too (and I’m still not completely happy with it), so this week’s post will be a bit shorter.  Because I want to play Rift.  SO THERE.

Song of the Week:

If you haven’t read my post about Pendulum, you should do so.  Immersion is seriously a great album, and this is probably one of my favorite songs off the album.  If you read my review, you can see that Immunize wasn’t one of my favorites when I first heard this album, but it really grew on me afterwards.  Usually the songs that grow on me end up being my favorites.  It’s just so fun to listen to, and it would make awesome fight music.

Funniest Video of the Week:



I’m not sure where the inspiration for this look came from.  I snatched a bunch of samples from the GC lab so I could do more varied looks, and I had promised to do a look using one of the new colors from the Star Trek, and I kinda just picked colors that I thought complimented it.  It’s definitely a night-time look.

This is my first time wearing Galactically Banned Ale (the new color from the upcoming Star Trek set Go Boldly), and I really like it.  It works exceptionally well with Solid Snake in my opinion.  Also, holy cow!  I forgot how awesome Solid Snake is!  Just so you all can fully appreciate it, I did a few swatches as well.

Geek Chic Cosmetics in Solid Snake (Single Player)

Geek Chic Cosmetics in Purity Burns (Fangbanger’s Quartet)

Sugarpill in Bulletproof





Daylight. I also have just realized I smile reaaally crooked LOL.

Product of the Week:

Solid Snake!  Yeeaaaah!

Solid Snake, with Galactically Banned Ale. I could not capture the true beauty of these colors in camera, so pretty.

'Purity Burns' felt left out.

Gaming, etc:

  • After being promised to be released countless times over the past few years (most recently May 3rd), Duke Nukem has announced another release date: June 14th.  If you pre-order the game, or buy the GOTY edition of Borderlands (great game), you get to play the demo for Duke Nukem on June 3rd.  I’ll believe it when I have the game in my hot little hands.
  • L.A Noire is out!  I hear it’s pretty gud. (90 on Metacritic.)
  • The Witcher 2 is also out.  I need to finish 1…
  • Steam is now doing Daily Deals, which is pretty cool.  Singularity is on sale right now for 10.20 (66% off).

Game of Thrones review coming tomorrow!  I think I’ll just make the official synopsis day Thursday, because that seems to be when I do them.  Holy cow, was this episode intense.  I’m ridiculously excited for next week.  You should be too.
