Happy Hour: Benefit’s Concealaholic and Dogfish Head Namaste

Hey friends!

Um, I’m kinda over being back to work/grad school. I actually fell asleep in the bathtub, I was so exhausted.Next week will get easier, but for tonight I’m curling up in my pajamas with a good beer.

And a good concealer. Because holy hell, I’ve needed to conceal my dark circles and puffiness this week like it’s my job. (Waking up when it is still dark outside is unnatural. Just FYI.)

So whether you’re about to head out and party this weekend, studying and doing school work, or you are going to be joining me in hibernation, you’ll love both Benefit’s Confessions of a Concealaholic and Dogfish’s Head Namaste.

Disclaimer: You better be 21 and up if you are reading the beer portion of this post, and please enjoy your booze and makeup, responsibly.

Fortune Cookie Soap: Fall 2014 Box

Hey friends!

Random Fact About Rebs: I conduct lots of studying and work in my “office.”

Where is my office you say? Oh, just my bathtub.

I. Love. Taking. Baths. It’s my quiet time. I relax or if I don’t have time for relaxing, I read my textbooks. And it’s still awesome because I’m in a bathtub.

This being said, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to discover Fortune Cookie Soap. There is nothing that feels more pampering and luxurious to me than some good bath products. Plus with cheeky little names like, “Unicorn Farts” and “Lemon Drop It Like It’s Hot”, I know we would get along. When I found out this company had a subscription box I was ON. IT.

This service is $19.99 and quarterly, (which is how I justified it in my mind. It’s not monthly, so, math, finances. Yeah.), and I got my first box, their Fall 2014 one last week.

Read on to find out what I got!

Good morning!

There are some mornings I sit down at my vanity and I feel inspired to create an amazing eye look that dazzles and impresses.

Happy Hour: Maui Coconut Porter and ColourPop Super Shock Eye Shadows

Hey friends!

Happy Friday!

I made it through my first week back of full time work/grad school. (Those of you in the country/world who don’t start your academic year until September, I shake my fist at you in jealousy! So jealous.)

Naturally, I am celebrating today! So for our Happy Hour post we’re looking at one of my new favorite cosmetics companies and their eye shadows.

So let’s kick off Happy Hour!

5 Minute Face: Drugstore Edition

Hey friends!

I hope your week is going well! The topic for this post has been especially relevant to me this week as I adjust to 5:30 mornings again.

We’ve all been there some of us daily: The morning that something goes wrong and we’re in a rush to get out the door. 

In these times of extreme panic and coffee chugging, it’s good to have what I call the 5 Minute Face* up your sleeve: the makeup you can throw on while eating a granola bar and finding a shoe. (That was an exaggeration, if you can really multitask like this, I am impressed.)

It’s not a full face of makeup, but it’s done in 5 minutes, and you look awake and put together. Today’s products to help you get ready in a flash are all under $10, so that should add some pep in your step this morning!

*TBH I have a 15 Minute Face. I don’t move fast in the mornings. At all.

August 2014 Face Off: Birchbox Vs. Ipsy

Good morning friends!

Let’s start this week off with a head to head contest to really get our blood flowing on this Monday morning.

Today we’re pitting the $10 Beauty subscription services against each other, Birchbox Vs. Ipsy, in a all out brawl and fight to the death.

Whoa. Sorry about that last bit, I was really getting into my metaphor. Too much caffeine. (I had to wake up at 5:30 this morning for the first time in months, and it hurt. It hurt.)

So without any further mentions of violence, I give you the August Beauty Box Face-Off!

No. Not that Face Off. I give up. The caffeine has gone straight to my head.

Oh, and there are so many pictures in this post. You’ve been warned.
