I Got Stuff- Loot Crate September
But it is October!! I am late and I have a bundle of joy for you all. I think this is my favorite Loot Crate so far. So many goodies that I wanted and didn’t want to share with no ones and ones I did. The theme was Galactic. A. Han Solo frozen in Carbonite poster I do like Star Wars but I do like Han Solo so a picture of him trapped and not talking is not my cup of…
This Week in Vivi- This Weekish
It’s back! Are you as excited as me? I am literally falling asleep as I write this because a common Vivi thing is to do more than I think I can do and tire myself out.Reading
- Anna and the French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins (FINISHED)
Mushy mushy mush. A mediocre book about rich people with teen love problems. I fucking loved it in all the ways I shouldn’t. If you like that type of stuff you will…
I Got Stuff- Ipsy September
Last post I did that featured “stuff of the month”, I talked about how bad I was at taking pictures. It isn’t only that I suck at taking them before I barrel into the package, they also often are just really bad pictures. I have no patience for lighting , framing, focusing. So that is what is featured in this mess. You can look online if you want better. :)
Bit of background as I introduce…
Janet Mock on Beyoncé’s feminism.
We can be sexual, sexy and flawless while advocating and fighting and educating and uplifting and critiquing and challenging and giving and everything.
Vivi Tells You What to Listen to - The Revival
Note: I apologize for any grammatical mistakes that are probably here. I know that if I try to edit this then I won’t publish it ever and I would rather get it out than make it pretty. Me talk pretty one day.
You are here. You were there but now you aren’t. You try to figure out where you are besides the vague “here”. THere is no mall directory to guide you on this journey. You are alone.…
Hello, Viva Glam Rihanna II!
I was a little shocked when I uncapped the tube and twisted the lipstick up. Brown lipsticks (excepting nude tones and super-dark noir ones) are my Cryptonite.
I cannot wear them. Never have been able to without looking corpse-like.
So when I saw Riri’s latest release, I thought “Oh darn this is only going to look good on caramel skins.”
After I swatched them on my wrist, I still wasn’t entirely convinced I could pull off the lipstick alone, but the gloss is nice, and layered together, the final effect is pretty darned gorgeous.
Long story short? If you love brown lips on you or have Rihanna’s bronze/caramel type skin (I think this would look fantastic on a lot of Latino and Indian women too) you might be able to pull off just the lipstick alone. The rest of us may need to layer them or just wear the gloss.
And as we know, Viva Glam sales go to a good cause, and it doesn’t help that the packaging is drop-dead gorgeous. Would you buy both? One? Or neither?
Things I Learned From the Weekend
I had a head cold that took me out of active service on Friday, Saturday and part of Sunday so while I couldn’t go out and be with people, I stayed home and learned things from my couch.
- I know most of the words to all of the songs in Sound of Music. I also wanna watch it right now. Like RIGHT NOW.
- Sixteen Going on Seventeen is my favorite Misogynistic song ever.
You need someone older…
There were plenty of famous faces at the Variety at Holt Renfrew photo studio today, but Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne had eyes only for each other!
In one of the sweetest moments of the morning, the two greeted each other with big (very manly, we assure you) hugs, Redmayne actually bounding across the room when he saw his fellow Brit was in the house. While Benedict sipped on a Fiji water, the two then proceeded to have a proper chinwag, joined by Redmayne’s fiance.
The two are both serious Oscar contenders in 2015 (Cumberbatch for his film at TIFF, The Imitation Game, and Redmayne for The Theory of Everything, also at the fest) but somehow we don’t think they’re letting the competition get in the middle of this bromance.
There may also be a third member to this wolfpack (he at least has ribbing privileges): Sam Worthington. When the room needed to be silent for Worthington’s interview, Cumberbatch (very loudly) announced to the room: “Oh, it’s just Sam Worthington. Everybody keep on talking!”. [x]whyaren’theydating.com
