As much as I love natural-looking makeup, some events in life just call for the full shebang.
Aerie is American Eagle’s little sister lingerie company, and it’s a store that I actually quite like. The prices are a bit high, but when you catch them on sale, you can get some cute stuff. Their main products are bras and underwear, like many lingerie companies. They don’t make my size of bras, but they sell amazing undies at really reasonable prices, and I probably bought 30 pairs of them over the summer.
This week, Aerie announced that they will no longer be using supermodels in their ads, and they will no longer be retouching the models they do use. They’ve branded this the Aerie Real campaign.
I think this is a small step in the right direction. In an industry that is attempts to make consumers feel insecure in order to create a market for their product (the “you’re inadequate, but if you buy our pushup bra you won’t be” effect), it’s neat to see more positive marketing.
However, I don’t think that this whole campaign is positive, nor do I think that Aerie deserves the massive kudos that they’re being slathered with.

This was a great year to be alive in the geekosphere, friends. I read lots, watched lots, and fangirled lots. So without further delay, let’s hop to it!
In a grand return to geekiness after an exam-related TV-watching hiatus, I’ve decided to write up a post I’ve been itching to do for some time now.
Anyone who knows me knows that I went through a serious Doctor Who phase the summer before last. I watched all seven of the seasons that were out at the time. Shortly after that, I watched Torchwood, too. And then I started doodling TARDII (my preferred pluralization of TARDIS) everywhere, cosplayed Martha Jones in a group cosplay at FanExpo, etc.
However, around the time the Ponds left, I realized I had started to force myself to tune in every week. That one episode where the universe like exploded and then they pressed the Giant Reset Button? Yes, that confused and angered me. I don’t think I’ve seen a single Clara episode aside from last year’s Christmas special, I’m not keen on watching this year’s, and I didn’t watch the 50th Anniversary Special. So I’m starting to think this viewer’s feelings about the show — dislikey feelings — have grown strong enough that she ought to acknowledge them.
It’s a beauty blogger’s (and vlogger’s) best friend.
Rarely do I go through a YouTube video in which the colour isn’t mentioned. Taupe is everywhere. Or is it?
Here we go again!
Shoppers Drug Mart is having another 3-hour sale. This time it’s lipstick and lip gloss, and it’s on Thursday December 5 from 5-8pm.
It excludes lipliners, balms, and prestige lipsticks and glosses. It seems everything else is fair game!
Now would be an awesome time to pick up some of the new drugstore lip offerings, like the Maybelline Colour Elixirs, and the Revlon Matte and Lacquer Balms. (It would also be a great time to nab some Revlon Lip Butters, my absolute favourite lip product…)
Is this gonna be a weekly thing? I hope so. Hopefully mascara’s next week; my Maybelline Illegal Lengths is drying out!
I really enjoy reading. However, as a university student, I’m constantly obliged to read things that I wouldn’t necessarily choose on my own. This means I’m usually drowning in reading materials to the point that where I do sit down to read, it isn’t usually for fun.
I’ve developed some ways to get around this.
