What I'm Loving July 2016


Lord, please save me from social media! Most of my social media time is spent on Instagram and Snapchat, but lately I've been getting into Periscope. I just got one this month and I follow about five people. I like the idea of being able to talk continuously without the interruptions (like Snapchat). And I like being able to interact with the people watching right in the moment (unlike YouTube). I haven't posted anything yet (done any scoping -- I think that's what the kids are calling it), but I really want to, but only if people would watch. So, if I did a Periscope would any of you watch it? My handle (on all social media) is ohtobeamuse -- keeping it simple.

Have you heard about One Two Cosmetics floating around in the ether? I can't remember where I saw this brand last week, but after watching their video on their One Two Magnetic Eyelashes, I was hooked. Remember how I said it took me 30 minutes to put on falsies in this post? That was no joke. Applying false lashes is too time consuming for me to do often, even though I absolutely adore the way they look. So a product like magnetic lashes (there is a top lash and a bottom lash -- each lash has a tiny magnet -- you hold the top lash above your natural lash and the bottom lash below it and they just snap together) is just what the beauty doctor ordered. They come in original, bold, accent and filler. The price tag is steeper than normal falsies, but that makes sense because these are reusable and take about five seconds to apply. Jump on that wait list!

I'm not afraid to admit that I watch my fair share of reality TV. I watch really great scripted shows, too, but sometimes I just want to not think and to simply be entertained. It's the same reason why I like the first song on this list. And right now, I've been really into Are You The One: Season 4 on MTV. It's a show where 10 men and 10 women try to find their perfect match and win money. It's fun because this Are You The One "cast" is more entertaining and social media savvy, and I find myself invested in one "couple" in particular, lol. But then I remember that I'm watching a reality show that features people who are 10 years my junior. And then I feel old.

I have yet to try this, and the reviews aren't particularly appealing, but I just love the idea of a spray on nail polish. The China Glaze Coloured Nail Spray is pretty fab because these are the steps: polish on a base coat, spray on two coats of the polish, then polish on a top coat. The fact that you can simply spray on nail polish is like a hallelujah moment for me. The only issue I see is that the polish seems to chip after one day. I've never had any luck with polish not chipping anyway, unless it was a gel manicure. So I think I might check it out as $10 is worth a try.

  13. Like I told you, I periscoped for the first time & literally like 3 people stayed to watch the entire thing. I don't really understand HOW people come into the live stream if they don't follow me, but then again there's some type of voodoo magic to all social networks ;) xx Adaleta Avdic
