Daily blog posts about:

  • Beauty minis || aren’t they adorable?  Do you collect them?  I know I do!

  • Beauty sets and kits || these will usually have minis.  They feed the addiction.
  • Collections || edits from my stash.  Hopefully, they’ll inspire you to shop yours.

About Lawler

I read beauty blogs like it’s my job.  I’m now going to write one like it’s my job.  But it won’t be, because my job is a project manager for a consulting firm.  My most recent projects involve sustainable agriculture.  It’s fun, and it’s challenging.  That’s why I like to kick back in my spare time and look at eyeshadow crayons and tiny bottles of moisturizer.

I got interested in beauty products after being introduced to the science aspect via the Skin & Tonics blog.  It was all downhill or uphill from there depending on your perspective.  The good is that I’m pretty satisfied with my collection of things.  There are still a few holes I want to fill, yet.  The bad is that I feel like it is far too much a collection of things than products I am actually using.  So, that’s why we’re here.  I’m handling and familiarizing myself with things I usually put on display with the sole purpose to use them up and share what I’ve learned about them.  I’m also working on a project to put my stash into a database using Sortly (highly suggested for those who think a spreadsheet just isn’t enough).  I’ll link to the post about Sortly here once I make one.

I do and have purchased all of the products featured on this blog myself.  It’s just a hobby blog, so I do not accept sponsored posts. If that changes in the future, I will update this space.  All the copy you find here is my own.

My posts may contain affiliate links.  If you click on affiliated products linked in my post, I may receive a small commission from the retailer for sending you their way.  I may earn an incrementally larger one if you follow through with a purchase.  I’m already a couple hundred in the hole here, guys.  It’ll take literal years for any affiliate marketing to make a difference.  But every little bit helps me keeps the lights on.  And I appreciate you hanging around, clickity-clacking, and talking beauty with me.  If you see something you like and would rather not click an affiliate link, just copy the text of the product, paste it into the browser of your choice, and let a search engine do its thing!
