image is a stock photo of a large color palette of 88 different shades by the brand coastal scents.If you’ve been around beauty blogs, vlogs, or anyone who buys budget beauty products you’ve likely heard of Coastal Scents. The company is well-known for HUGE palettes of eyeshadow, lipstick, and blushes for cheap, and tons of women swear by them! Their products are priced nicely and if you’re curious to try them now is a great time to check them out because there’s a great deal on Livingsocial (a deals site that I like) that lets you get $25 worth of Coastal Scents for only $12. A lot of their items are on sale right now which rules but don’t forget that this $25 for $12 coupon deal is only on for one day, so don’t miss it (after you buy your coupon you have until March 1, 2013 to use the promotional value, and the paid value never expires).

Image is a photo of the packaging of the Bihada Sizuku sheet mask. There is an image of an aloe vera plant set upon a black background and the words Sizuku Natural Pulp Essence Face Mask in the center.I love sheet masks. They’re soothing, relaxing, fun, and I feel like a Sheet Princess with one of these on. A lot of them are rather great for improving dumb skin and maintaining good skin, and there are a lot of great ones for low cost. I typically enjoy wearing the moisturizing types and leaving them on while I watch 1-hour-long shows like K-Dramas or Doctor Who. Most packages recommend 20-30 mins but I find that with moisturizing products there’s no harm in keeping them on longer and I just like going to my happy place as I watch a show in Sheet Princess mode.

An image of etude house brand hand cream in a package shaped like a white, black, and pink panda. A peach is pictured on the belly of the animal. It is smiling and very cute. In order to stay on top of things, I read a lot of beauty blogs. I enjoy learning about products, finding the best stuff, and just reading what other people are into. It’s fun to get into other people’s purchases and see what they’re drawn to, and what they actually buy! This is my first “haul” post, and if you’re unfamiliar, the idea is to show you what I got. This isn’t a review, but I plan to review items from this haul (some were really good purchases!).
 
I bought a number of items from Imomoko.com recently during their free US shipping deal (love it!) and I also got a few of my items on sale. Imomoko is a good online dealer for Asian cosmetics and beauty products. Read more…

Cute Diggle PlushieBy now everyone knows how much fun I think Dungeons of Dredmor is. Those of you wanting reviews, I plan to do one once the Conquest of the Wizardlands expansion is patched. If you’re new here, I may have established that I’m pretty good at DoD when I murdered Lord Dredmor in an absurdly difficult way, and after doing so there were some events to follow that would lead to me finding a lot of great people in the game community (and having a whole new appreciation for the developer). Among the communities I found were the folks over at /r/Dredmor on Reddit. They started up a weekly Dredmor Challenge which I recently participated in and won (it was close!) So that means this week I get to make the new Reddit Dredmor Challenge! You can see the details here on Reddit/r/Dredmor. If you’re new to Reddit/terrifed of Reddit I’ve reposted the contest here as well so you can participate. (I’ll just post your scores on Reddit for you, either comment here or email me at thecakepie@gmail.com) Read more…

I’m about to tell you a story about videogames, kitchens, and internet forums that has a happy ending. Stop laughing, I’m serious.
 
What happened here has never happened to me before in my life, or to any other woman I have ever heard of, so listen up. Listen well all of you. If you’re a Game Dev or you moderate an internet community, or you’re a bunch of women who know how this usually plays out–no matter who the hell you are I promise you that you’ve never seen this before.
