"Really? Mara? Looking at the brighter side of things?" you may ask. But I just want to have a mini celebration in honor of me this week because for some weird, fortunate reason, I do not hate everything as much as I used to. So on with my list!
Also posted on a Sunday BECAUSE I CAN.

Without using the Blur Tool!
So it may seem like I'm sliding back to thinking this is a beauty blog again, but TBQH, I just really, really, REALLY love beauty-related things that I can't stop talking about it. There are so many beauty knowledge out there, and it gets me so frustrated to not have anyone to share it with.
But anyway, I am trying this new thing where I test drive tips I find online so I can share them with you or anyone who cares to read. So I hope you enjoy this tip and let me know if it works for you!

Living alone stripped me the luxury of time (chores all around!), so I always try to find ways to make my life simpler and my day-to-day going ons faster. I know some people plan their outfits for the week or have an outfit "uniform" to take the guesswork out of dressing up. But since my first love is Beauty and I just randomly pick whatever is in my closet, I tend to find ways to hack my Beauty routines. Of course, this beauty hack is not universal, but feel free to try it out and let me know how it works for you.
Please expect gratuitous photos of my face.

I was slated to write something about National Lipstick Day, but I realized that writing about lipsticks without mentioning shades or brands* is really of no value to anyone. It also makes me sick to think that I'll be writing drivel if I try to skew the messaging to confidence, freedom, etc. Besides, we all know it's really not my style to write Things to Make You Feel Better. I tried my best to be positive throughout this post, drawing Inner Strength and Grace Under Pressure while I wrote, but if it's not to your liking, please know that I have done nothing but love and support you. It's unlike you to pit women against each, wait.
So what happened on July 28, 2015, Tuesday, for it to deserve to be called My Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day?

At this point, I have already read all of your books - Fangirl, Landline, Eleanor and Park, and lately, Attachments. Can I call you Rainbow? I think I should be comfortable in the First Name Basis territory after obsessively reading your oeuvre. But, ya know, Rainbow, I have to confess, this one didn't hit the right nerves as Fangirl did.
