Happy Hour: Shiro Cosmetics and Breckenridge Autumn Ale

Hey friends!

It finally got down to the 80’s and 70’s(at some points) this past weekwned in my little part of the world. Naturally all the people around me put on sweaters and started ordering hot chocolate. Because fall is here!*

To celebrate this change in weather I knew it was time to take Happy Hour into some seasonal fall beers. I also knew it was time to debut two eye shadows that have been on display in my house these past few weeks. They have Groot and Nic Cage on them. Enough said.

Thankfully the grocery store was also selling fake orange, yellow, and red leaves because it does not look like fall anywhere near me!

So let’s bring on a pretend fall weekend with this week’s Happy Hour!

*Fall does not officially start until September 21. FYI. Thanks.

Happy Hour: August Beauty Favorites Under $10

Hey friends,

So, I got it in my head that I could make a video about my August Beauty Favorites Under $10. (Plus 3 beers!)

“Everyone does it.” I thought, “It will be eassssssyyyy.”

Yeah, no.

Things fell apart quickly. Let’s just say that. (Hence why this post is coming out at 11pm. Sorry!)

However, I HATE wasting things, including time, so I have to at least share my attempts at a video. And you can admire my carpet.

Keep reading for my first and last video ever!

It all went downhill from here.

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.

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.
