Happy Hour: NYC Eyeliner and Alaskan Pumpkin Porter

Hey friends!

I am having a fantastic Friday! By the time this posts publishes I will be thoroughly enjoying Wedding Weekend Palooza Part II. This wedding is for Mr. Danger’s cousin, so it’s been great to catch up and see some of his family. And enjoy copious amounts of food and beverages.

Speaking of beverages-it’s Happy Hour! Today I’m starting my Happy Hour Pumpkinfest! For the next several weeks I’ll be featuring my favorite pumpkin beers. There’s a lot to choose from out there, so I’m going to help you narrow it down to the best.

As for makeup, I’ll be focusing on some cheap fall favorites. For today I’m featuring the perfect eyeliner for creating a beautiful fall eye look.

So let’s start Happy Hour!

Makeup Brushes on a Budget

Hey friends!

Hope your Wednesday finds you well! Things in my little space of the world are bananas as always, but they are also very good.

Today’s topic is not exactly exciting, but it’s fairly essential in the world of makeup. That’s right, I’m here today to speak to you about makeup brushes. (I assume this is not super exciting, but there could be a person out there who adores collecting makeup brushes-who am I to judge.)

However we all need makeup brushes, so I’m here to help you find the best cheap ones. Also I have inserted the free stock photo to below to make this post more glamorous.

October 2014: Wantable Accessories

Hey friends!

I survived Part I of Wedding Weekend Octoberextravanza 2014. It was a lot of fun! I was a spastic bridesmaid and got to catch up with some old college friends. No one tripped, all brides were married, and I got queso. I consider it a success!

Anyways, I’m back this week with some new posts before I’ll be heading out of town for Wedding Weekend Part II!

Although I’ve been writing posts, I haven’t had much time for interacting on Facebook, Twitter, etc. So just a general shout out and thanks to everyone who has been reading this blog, and welcome to any new followers! Despite everything going on my life, I genuinely love writing these posts and managing this blog, and I’m happy to share it with you!

So that being said, let’s get to the important stuff. I got my October Wantable Accessories Box! As usual, it was $36, and shipped quickly, I got it before Oct. 1!

Check out what I got this month:

Happy Hour: September Favorites

Hi friends!

As this post publishes, I’m practicing walking down an aisle. (AKA I am being a bridesmaid for a lovely friend/roomie from college.) With all the wedding festivities I’m involved in this weekend, I’m trying something new for my monthly favorites post. (AKA I can not make another video until after my I finish my thesis, because that business is time consuming.)

So today I’m sharing a round up of my favorite’s from this past month, some old and some new.

Let me know what you think!

Pampering On a Budget

Hey friends!

I got a message from this universe this past weekend when I got sick (for the third weekend since school/work started again), and it was, “SLOW DOWN AND SLEEP 13+ HOURS”. So I did. And hello! I feel like a person again!

So if you are also finding yourself spread in 67 different directions and injecting espresso into your veins, (ok, it wasn’t that bad, but I was relying on a steady stream of caffeine to exist), then I urge you to take some time for yourself this week.

Maybe just an hour, maybe a whole day. But I feel like in our culture that rewards and encourages busyness and perpetual motion, (for more on the glorification of busyness, check out this article and this one) sometimes it’s awesome to do absolutely nothing.

And I can help you with that! Here are some of my favorite budget products to indulge in when I want to take some time to pamper myself.
