Hey guys. I’ve finally reached the max dosage for my Lyme disease medication (read about my struggle with Lyme here), so I haven’t been feeling too good lately, and with the holidays, well, there hasn’t been a lot of updating from me, has there? For those of you who follow me on Facebook I’ve been posting deals from the Good Old Games sale and the Steam sale (videogames), plus any awesome beauty sales I find (Sasa.com!). If you’re not following on FB, consider it. I find the best deals a lot of people miss + you may see awesomeness. Fair warning ^_^
Holidays were good for me, I had a lot of Korean food (my favorite!) which is TOTALLY not allowed considering my strict requirements. Doctors orders: I have to eat a very careful diet, you guys would not believe how boring it is, lol. I can’t eat at restaurants and no one makes compatible food so I have to bring food with me. Usually I’m good, but I have no resistance against delicious Korean foods (ddukbokki, kimchi, japchae, bulgogi, ermagherd so gerd!!). Perhaps then it’s a good thing that we don’t have Korean restaurants in Vermont, if we did I’d fail at my diet and get so sick!
Though mostly I’ve been too sick to play a lot of games, the ones I’ve spent the most hours on recently are Harvest Moon Tree of Tranquility (Wii), and I just got The Sims 3 (PC) during the Steam flash sale. I’ve also been rocking Fortune Summoners Secret of the Elemental Stone (PC), which is unusual because I’m not typically into platformers, and they’re difficult due to my hands sucking at anything hands are supposed to do (like opening jars, writing legibly, holding objects, or jumping on shit missions in games). I’d say I enjoy all of these games so far, and yeah none are super hip roguelikes but I’ve been too sick, my brain can’t rogue. Every time I play I get Yet Another Stupid Death (YASD) because I can’t focus. So I’ve been playing more casual stuff for now.
As for makeup news, I hauled a bunch of secret stuff during The Body Shop sale over the weekend. All their gift sets were 50% off + I had a $15 off coupon (purchases over $50) + I had enough Love My Body “points” to get another $15 off. I basically saved millions and got a lot of nice stuff. The unsecret purchases were Cranberry body spray and Cranberry Diffuser (this thing makes the room smell pretty!). I really liked their holiday Cranberry smells but I just can’t pay full price for anything, so I waited. I’m glad I finally got the Cranberry things I wanted!
My family is kinda unconventional, so we’re doing our “Christmas” in a few days from now (IE not on actual Christmas). We’re a huge clan of people, some of my friends describe us as rural pirates. We’re raucous, we speak freely, we love games, we love food, and we include everyone. We’re like the most bizarre people and I love it. I have to say it’s much better celebrating Christmas AFTERWARD because no one is competing for where to spend Christmas, and everything is on sale, you can get your family better gifts after the holidays! I really like getting the most value for my money ^_^
I have a mega backlog of wonderful reviews I can’t wait to share with you guys, so look forward to seeing more of that coming up! And get ready, I plan to cover games a lot more as I start to feel better again. I miss telling you about my favorite roguelikes, and one of my goals is to teach more people how to play them, so you should expect to see tutorials and guides the moment I can put them together. How fun, right? The last awesomeness you can look forward to will be a BLOG SALE!! Who doesn’t love sales? I’ll have games, beauty products, outifts, and maybe a few random things, so stay tuned in so you don’t miss it.
As a gift for the holidays, maybe you can give some feedback for me? I’d love to know more about you!
- What Cake-pie changes are you most looking forward to?

HAPPY NEW YEAR and I hope you’ll continue to follow me into the next year ^_^ I’m looking forward to the new year, the new changes to the blog, and getting better from Lyme (: Oh, and new makeup releases from Wet n Wild!! I love reading all your comments and engaging with you guys. Those of you waiting on packages I have not forgotten you!! I’m always slow but you can count on me (:
I want to leave you guys with a little something beauty-related:
Majolica Majorca #GR222 “Sudden Impulse” This was my birthday mani, and I love this teal jelly polish. This is 3 coats, and it’s a possible dupe for Zoya Frida. (Picked this up during my Imomoko Haul in September)
Ice princess nails for winter! First time dealing with glitter, so forgive it if it’s not perfect. I like this look and I’d wear it again. Butter London Knackered and West End Wonderland.
My first time playing with 3d nail art. I have to say I NEVER wanted to take this mani off!! I got these fimos at Sally’s (but they’re cheaper on ebay). The polish is Julep Georgia.
I got this at Hot Topic for like $1.25 during their 50% off clearance sale (highly recommend Hot Topic sales!). This is three coats and the photo doesn’t do it justice. Pink glittery jelly color, almost sheer, very cute. My current favorite nail polish!
Oh and this is the package for the Hot Topic nail polish above. How could I resist a pink glitter jelly nail polish IN A SKULL?
