I thought, for my very last column, I would write about something that could be taught to many generations to come, and one day may find itself in your children's history books. I wanted to write about something that really mattered and something that has meaning. I wanted to explore writing a column ab...

March 21, 2017

I’ve had gal pals ever since I can remember; gals that understand my perfection, and gravitate toward it. Over the years, I’ve had pals get too intimidated by my fierce bone structure and incredible personality. However, there has been one thing that has stuck by my side for years. The ultimate g...

Fresh Face: Nail Clippers

February 17, 2017

Clipping away my problems has never been so easy.  The change that comes with a new set of nicely trimmed nails makes solving the world’s problems so much easier. Granted, I can’t snatch as many wigs as I can with a longer nail. However, I make the world a better place one short nail at a time. For...

Fresh Face: Bolegner Air Humidifier

January 16, 2017

Growing up, I’ve always known I’m invincible. No one told me. I just knew. It’s not a difficult concept to grasp for the human brain. I’m perfect, most people aren’t. In fact, I have yet to find someone that is as perfect as I am. It’s hard living like this sometimes. Anyway, the topic...

I’ve always had inklings of what I loved as long as I can remember. I knew I loved femininity. From strutting in heels as a five-year-old, to going to my junior year Homecoming in drag, I knew the world of lipstick and bubblegum would be by my passion for eternity. A major part in that world of makeu...

November 15, 2016

In the events that happened this month - a Trump presidency, riots across the country, a Hillary loss - I’ve needed something to keep my spirits up. With a Trump win keeping the country at a very big low (except the people that voted for him - congratulations to you) I’ll be telling my fans about ...

I’ve always hated the color red. At a younger age, red symbolized everything negative in the world. It represented the blood from the scrapes I would get on my knees from the park, anger, evil, and now my skin. My skin gets very irritated very quickly. The blemishes fire up like Donald Trump every tim...

Fresh Face: “Alba Botanica Night Cream”

September 16, 2016

Over the summer, I hoped my skin would blossom into the perfect airbrushed aesthetic that Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid miraculously obtained. However, I still have enough oil on my forehead to make a cake. A customer once noticed my cake making ability due to the oil on my skin while I worked. I ran...

Looking flawless and having airbrushed skin is something I have always experienced throughout my life. However, when I do get those very rare blemishes, it’s nice to have a miraculous foundation to tuck it away. With a foundation that erases the problems of the world, a makeup sponge that spreads ...

I love finding things that allow me to burst through a rainbow and scream “I’m gay!” at the top of my lungs and skip down the street with an attitude that says, “I’m still better than you.” Recently, I have started to dabble in my love for makeup. I’ve always liked makeup-- except I am r...

March 10, 2016

I finally found a product I hate more than the joke that has become Donald Trump. I love when I find something I hate. It’s a new thing to talk about, to tell people not to buy it, to ruin the name brand. In this case, I generally like the brand. However, this product is worse than the time I was i...

I’ve had a life-changing experience. Before, I was a naive child with overalls and pigtails. Now, I’m a mature adult. My life is now filled with experience, determination, a fabulous aesthetic, and a humble attitude. “Burt’s Bees: Herbal Blemish Stick” is the cause of this life changing ep...
