Lush Bunny Moon Jelly Face Mask

Today I’m doing my first Lush review! How nuts is that? I’ve had this blog for two years (I know!!!) and I still haven’t reviewed any Lush products. I’m reviewing the brand new Lush Bunny Moon Jelly Face Mask. These jelly face masks just came out on Sept. 1, and I snagged one of them during my last visit in store. Find out what I think of the Lush Bunny Moon Jelly Face Mask down below!

Camp Gritty Dance Party Makeup Feat. Melt Cosmetics Blow

Camp Gritty Dance Party Makeup Feat. Melt Cosmetics Blow

Between August 13 – 17, I was at an incredibly wonderful space called Camp Gritty (blog post about Camp to come!) One of the nights was a giant dance party, and beforehand we got to get makeup-ready with total sweetheart and talented makeup artist Rosalina Young. You probably know her as ahitsrosa on Instagram and YouTube. She’s been on my favorite makeup artists and inspiration for years (you can see a look I did inspired by her here!), and being able to get ready with her was such a cool experience!

Sugarpill and Melt Cosmetics sponsored the party, and because of that we got to walk away with a pink eyeshadow and a lipstick! I chose Melt Cosmetics Blow as my lipstick and I based my makeup look around that lipstick. Learn how I achieved this look down below!

Bundle Monster Teenage Dream Candy Heart Nails

Bundle Monster Teenage Dream Candy Heart Nails

I’m back with nail art! It’s been quite a hot minute since I’ve posted nail art. I fell off the wagon for a while. I didn’t even paint my nails for a whole month. After 5+ years on constantly having my nails painted, I think I was burnt out. But after doing this nail art and trying some others, I think I may be back in the swing of things. Let’s hope this streak lasts!

Today’s look uses the Bundle Monster Teenage Dream stamping plate set. These plates came out a while ago, but this is one of the first looks I used using multiple plates. I was inspired by these nails by midnight_stamper. I did mine a little differently, but I think the overall look is the same. Check out how to get these nails down below!

(Yet Another) Green and Glitter Underliner Makeup Look

August 30, 2017

Green and Glitter Underliner

I’ve had the picture for this look edited and ready since my last rainbow eye makeup look, but I never got around to posting about it. Right when I posted that look, I started a retail job that unfortunately didn’t pan out. Now that I have the time again, let’s start writing again!

Today I’m sharing this Green and Glitter Underliner look. This is extremely similar to the Pink Underliner look I did back in June, but this time it’s green! Underliner is my favorite way to incorporate color into my eye makeup without looking overly done or dramatic. Check out how to get this Green and Glitter Underliner look down below!

Rainbow Gay Pride Makeup Feat. Sugarpill Cosmetics

July 13, 2017

Gay Pride Makeup

June is National Gay Pride month, and to celebrate I went down to New York to join my friends in watching the NYC Gay Pride Parade. Of course I was excited to support my friends and cheer on those who were marching, but I think I was most excited to do some colorful makeup. While on the weekends I like to get creative and rock some colorful makeup, rainbow eyes are just too bold for getting groceries. I created this Gay Pride makeup using Sugarpill Cosmetics, an indie brand that drag queens and bright makeup lovers alike love to use. Learn how to get my Gay Pride makeup down below!

May VNYL Subscription Review: #SPRINGiton

May VNYL Subscription Review: #SPRINGiton

This is a Rebel Post. Rebel Posts are off-topic posts about anything I feel like writing about. Please enjoy.

After getting into vinyl records, I had thirst for collecting vinyl. I was visiting the Newbury Comics near me almost every weekend for a new record. It got so bad I was visiting my local store almost three times a week. I created a Discogs account and started buying records off of there. I wanted every album I ever loved on record.

Then I found VNYL, a subscription service that used your Spotify, Last.FM and other accounts to hand-pick and deliver you three records a month. Honestly, I thought this was too good to be true at first. Would I actually get records that I love, or will I get records that sort of sound like what I would want but I don’t really like? Read my VNYL subscription review down below (with bonus YouTube video!)

Rainbow Arrows #NOTD

For a while I wasn’t into nail art. I’m not really sure what happened, but doing my nails became a chore. Painting my nails only takes 10 minutes, but nail art? That can take an hour to do. But in a moment of clarity, I sat down and created this fun rainbow gradient nail art using some stamping. Find out how I got this rainbow arrows #NOTD and how I do my gradients!

Makeup Flashback: Pink Underliner

June 16, 2017

It’s been a bit since I’ve blogged about makeup! Weekends are really the only time I get to wear the bright, colorful makeup that makes me feel most myself. Usually I opt for bright eyeliner with a subtle lip, and this look was no different. I took some inspiration from a look I did in 2012 and did a fun pink underliner look! Find out how I got this look down below.

The Dumb Reason Why I Started Collecting Vinyl Records

The Dumb Reason Why I Started Collecting Vinyl Records | The Rebel Planner

This is a Rebel Post. Rebel Posts are off-topic posts about anything I feel like writing about. Please enjoy.

For a really long time I was one of those annoying people that couldn’t understand why vinyl was making a come back. It seemed like at every garage sale we had my dad was trying to sell off his records. No one ever wanted them year after year. I would go into record shops and see bin upon bin of albums no one wanted anymore. Collections that probably took years and hundreds of dollars to build up were dumped at shops for $20. It didn’t make any sense to me.

But then curiosity got the best of me. Why was vinyl making a come back? I started doing some light research into vinyl records. What players are out there? How much do they cost? What equipment do I need? After an exhausting 15 minutes of research, I decided vinyl records weren’t for me. $20+ for a new record? And that’s not even for big names like Ed Sheeran or Adele whose records can reach up to $50. I couldn’t justify the high price range when I pay $4.99 a month for seemingly every song ever recorded.
