Haus of Gloi: Spring 2015 Review

Hey friends!

I’m a little late to the Haus of Gloi Spring Review game, but I have good reason! I got these last week, and I really wanted to give my perfumes about a week to settle, especially after a few went bonkers when I first tried them, (which you’ll hear more in the reviews).

But it’s a week later, and I’m here with my well informed review. Just in time for the Haus of Gloi Spring restock on April 5th! 

Check out what I thought!

Subscription Sunday: Notoriously Morbid’s Vanishing Cabinet

Hey friends!

How’s your weekend going? The weather where I live has been gorgeous, so I’ve been ignoring my responsibilities working outside on my exams and papers. Because summer is coming. And it will be 103589 degrees in about a month, so I have to enjoy this beautiful-ness now.

I did take a study break to swatch my most recent Vanishing Cabinet by Notoriously Morbid, though! The theme was Game of Thrones, and I can never resist that hook.

So check out what I got!

Happy Hour: Favorite New Mascara and Brooklyn Brewery’s Sorachi Ace

Hey friends!

Oh goodness what a week. I’m busting out one of my Lush bubble bars  cutting it in half, because I’m cheap and taking a bath tonight. With a giant, but responsible, adult beverage.

If you have energy to get out for a Happy Hour, I’ve got a makeup product for you, my new favorite mascara, Maybelline’s Lash Sensational Mascara-and it’s only $7!

I would normally rave about my beer of the week here, but unfortunately I had a case of mistaken beer identity. I thought this Brooklyn Brewery Sorachi Ace was a Saison I’d tried before and loved, but it turns out, I strongly, immensely, really dislike it.

So for more on that story, as well as a cheap new mascara, check out Happy Hour!

EOTD/BOTD: Aromaleigh’s Blush Response

Hey friends!

How’s it going today? So I started watching The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmit on Netflix, (usually while I’m scarfing down dinner), and I’m loving it. It’s charming, silly, and hilarious, with jokes and gags crammed into every scene. I had a meh day and Kimmy Schmidt was a great pick-me-up. Let me know in the comments if you’ve seen it!

Anyway, makeup and beer are also good pick me ups to meh days, and I have both for you today in our EOTD/BOTD. I’m sharing another look I tried with the “More Human Than Human” Collection from Aromaleigh. This one is a fairly subtle work appropriate look. Because that’s where I live.

I also have Belfort, a Belgian Style Strong Ale that Mr. Danger got for me, from Rogness Brewing Company. (I’ve really been on a Belgian role lately.)

So check out EOTD/BOTD!

Visage Box by Hello Waffle: March 2015

Hey friends!

So this post technically should have come out yesterday, but my puffy eyes were not up to a photoshoot, so I moved it. But I’m here today, with a review of the March Visage Box by Hello Waffle, including a look with the products! Puffy eyes and everything!

The packaging was spot on for the theme this month!

Subscription Sunday: Black Violet’s Blackbox-Clue Edition

Hey friends!

How’s the weekend treating you? I had really grown up adult expectations of going to bed early to do work on Sunday. And then Mr. Danger decided to brew and we stayed up until 1:30 in our garage, bonding with our next door neighbors, instead. Adult life choices, right here.

Due to this lack of sleep, I have a change in plans for my Subscription Sunday post. I’m pushing my Hello Waffle Visage Box review back until tomorrow morning. I hadn’t finished my FOTD look with the Visage box yet, and now that I have massive bags under my eyes, I’m going to wait until I look better to photograph my face. Vanity, thy name is Exhausted Rebs.

This means that I have a brand new subscription box to review for you today! Black Violet’s Blackbox! I’ve been stalking this box since I first heard of it’s creation in January, and I was so thrilled to grab one. It’s a mixture of skin and hair care products, plus perfume! 

There will be more slots opening in May, so check out what I thought!

Subscription Saturday: Glamour Doll Eyes’ March OTM

Hey friends!

How’s your Saturday going? I was supposed to go to an event at a local brewery today and it got rained out. I am very sad about this because now I might have to actually be productive. No. No. No.

Anyway, in good news, I was lucky enough to grab an available one month OTM from Glamour Doll Eyes, and I am here to share it with you today!

So let’s check it out!

Darling Clandestine: Spring and Grab Bag Review Review

Hey friends!

How’s it going for you? I picked a bad week to stop drinking coffee. (Just kidding that would never happen. I meant to say I picked a bad week to stop abusing coffee.) It’s just been a very long and tiring week.

Good thing perfumes always make me feel better. (Specifically ones that smell like coffee, thank you Circassian, thank you.)

I’ve got a review of some of Darling Clandestine’s Spring scents and then a review of some of her Classic Scents from my Grab Bag purchase.

As a newbie to DC, I had a lot of fun with my little haul, so read on!

EOTD/BOTD: Glamour Doll Eyes’ Anti-Valentine’s Day-Part 2

Hey friends!

For today’s EOTD/BOTD we have the second round of eye shadows I picked up from the Glamour Doll Eyes’ Anti-Valentine’s Day Collection. Since I only grabbed four I decided to do a little mini review with the EOTD.

You can see last week’s post where I reviewed and used Pornstache and *Snap* Fierce here.

I also have Clown Shoes’ The Peace That Money Can’t Buy, that I forgot I reviewed a couple of weeks ago and never shared. Spoiler: It’s the longest beer name everrrrr.
