EOTD/BOTD: Blue Sky, Green Grass

Hey friends!

Hope Wednesday is treating you well!

I’m still working through my new Dawn Eyes Cosmetics order, and I’ve got a gorgeous Springy shade to share with you. It’s a lazy girl Spring #EOTD that requires next to no blending or special skills. Perfect for when you would rather be boating or laying in grass or whatever Spring activity you prefer.

Also I have Chimay Grande Reserve to review. Which honestly, is more of me waxing poetic and gushing love, than a true review. Because it’s Chimay Grande Reserve.

So check it out!

Sugar and Spite: Oh the Horror! Wax Tart Sampler

Hey friends!

Today I have a post that doesn’t fall into any of the normal categories I write about, but it smells so nice I wanted to share it. We can say it falls into a new category of “Indie Lifestyle”. No, that sounds weird. “Indie etc”.  There you go.

Today I’m sharing Sugar and Spite’s Oh the Horror! Wax Tart Sampler pack. Never before have I dived into the world of wax tarts, but I quickly learned there’s a very loyal community. And the first rule of wax tarts is to talk about wax tarts. (Seriously, I watched a couple of Youtube videos on wax tarts. I didn’t even know there would be content to make a Youtube video of, but that just shows how ignorant I used to be to the world of wax tarts.)

Anyway, when I saw Sugar and Spite offering wax tarts, I decided I had to try them out. I mean there’s only so much skin I can apply perfume to, so tarts really opened the realm of wonderful smell possibilities!

So check it out!

Happy Hour: NYX’s Illuminator and Ballast Point’s Grapefruit Sculpin

Hey friends!

So so so so sorry for the belated post!

Some of you may recall I’ve had a busy few weeks, (that I’ve been very vague about.) I’ve had a bunch of half written posts, but so many things have come up I’ve never gotten to finish them and then I become irresponsibly late on publishing them. Hey, better late than never, right? I think. Maybe.

BUT! I have a really good reason for all the lateness, that I can finally share! Because I got my Master’s in December, I’ve been able to apply for new jobs that I couldn’t do before without the higher degree. Last week, I had 5 interviews, (hence the utter exhaustion), and yesterday I was officially offered a position at what is basically my dream job. SO I HAVE BEEN CELEBRATING! WHAHOAFHODJ. (That is me dancing and shouting in excitement.)

I can’t actually share the details of what my job is, because it’s in a field that values confidentiality, but rest assured, I am so so so thrilled. And hey, perfect late timing, let me share a delicious beer and lovely makeup product with you to celebrate!

Thank you for your patience with my unpredictable posting, and enjoy this Saturday Happy Hour!

Subscription Sunday: Glamour Doll Eyes’ April OTM

Hey friends!

How’s your Sunday going? Mr. Danger and I are loving the beautiful weather today, (because summer is coming), and grabbed some coffee before being ultra productive and running errands. (And then Mr. Danger passed out on the couch, so I think that burst of energy is over.)

Last night I got to finally test out my Glamour Doll Eyes’ OTM eye shadow, when I went out to our favorite neighborhood pub, (which I could probably wear my pajamas to-so makeup wasn’t really necessary, but I think they were impressed with my eye look!) So today I wanted to share this lovely shade and the eye look I did with it.

Did I mention the theme? It’s pretty adorable. Check it out!

Subscription Saturday: Rainbow Honey’s April Mystery Bag

Hey friends!

After a brief and unexpected hiatus-I’m back! I missed you guys! How are you? How was your week? Did anything exciting happen on the internet while I was gone?

I took time off from blogging because I had a bunch of Grown Up Real Life things come up all at once, (all good things, no worries!), that required all my time and energy. I haven’t heard back on any of my efforts from this past week yet, so I’m just crossing my fingers and hoping for the best!

Now that I’m in the restless waiting phase of Grown Up Real Life things, I have time to return to my regular blogging schedule! So today I have Rainbow Honey’s April Mystery Bag to share with you, which is perfect timing because my nails have had to be boring mauve adult colors all week. BRING ON THE GLITTER.

Check out the Rainbow Honey April Mystery Bag!

Solstice Scents: The Night Collection

Hey friends!

How’s it going? Since Spring has finally arrived I’ve been wanting to wear lighter scents to fit the warmer, (and more humid, where I live) weather. Enter Solstice Scent’s The Night Collection that Mr. Danger originally gave me for Christmas wayyyyy back in December. Yes, I have so many perfumes, it takes me that long to review things. 

The Night Collection is all based around Solstice Scents’ original Edge of the Night perfume, and has every variation of perfume scent style from foodie to aquatic. It’s a little bit of something for everyone.

Check out if any of these could work for you!

Sixteen92: Spring and General Catalogue Review

Hey friends!

How was your weekend? I had a random trip with Mr. Danger and my bestie to run a race and then attend an anniversary party at a brewery. It was good times!

But back today. Today, I bring you: The Post That Should Not Be

Dramatically titled this because I actually never meant to review any of the Sixteen92 scents I have for you today. I randomly accumulated these samples after several impulse orders, and then realized I had enough to constitute reviewing. So here I am, adding to the indie perfume literature.

I’ve got some scents from Sixteen 92’s Spring Collection and a few from Sixteen 92’s General Catalogue, so check out my impulse buys and let me know what you think!
