EOTD/BOTD: Shiro’s I Tried

Hey friends!

How’s your week going?

I’m trying this whole, “Go to bed on time and actually ger more than 5 hours of sleep” thing, and it is hard! How about you guys, are you sticking to your New Years Resolutions?

Just in case all your resolutions have already fell by the wayside, today’s Eye of the Day uses Shiro’s January 2014 COTM, “I Tried”. Because we did! And that’s what counts. I think.

As for my beers this week, I’m definitely feeling a lighter mood and switching it up from my typical stouts and porters.

So check it out!

(PS: I did get brave and start posting some looks on Instagram, and I’m also participating in the #Januarymakeupchallenge, so feel free to say hi @BeautyonaBeerBudget!)

Happy Hour: October Favorites

Hey friends!

Something to know about me: I may not be timely, but I am thorough! For instance, it may be November 7th, but I am determined to do my October Favorites post. Because it will get done, maybe a week late, but, DONE.

It is really a miracle this post is happening at all since I’m supposed to be completely the data analysis for my thesis research. And this is what I have done so far:

My classmates thought this would go well in my Appendix.

My classmates thought this would go well in my Appendix. Also, this is not a cry for help, makeup will save me.

Anyway, my stubbornness is pushing me through! (Also I’ve been bribing myself with makeup, a very effective incentive.)

October flew by very fast, (I still have my Halloween lights up, for example), but I still did manage to buy like 349898 beauty products, so check out the bests of the month below:

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 businessĀ 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!

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!

Happy Hour Shiro Cosmetics

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