How have you been? I got attacked by a stomach virus that took a week to recover from. It was pretty gross.
Anyway, I finally started to feel better this weekend and got to work on putting together a new Sunday Funday Happy Hour! Today I’m sharing probably one of the most delicious takes on pumpkin beer, Point Brewery’s Whole Hog Pumpkin Ale and some of the new Fall 5 pan palettes from Wet N’ Wild.
I had the grandest plans to finish editing a few posts and have them up this week. Unfortunately, this week then went kind bananas and that didn’t happen. I got home late from work/grad school every night this week and passed out watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix instead. (#PARTYLIFE.) Hence, the radio silence for the past few days.
The good news is I now have a ton of posts for next week and it’s Thanksgiving week, so we’ll pretend I meant to do it. Yeah, I was planning it that way for the holiday week. Sure.
So tonight I’m studying for a big grad school licensure-type test, but I thought I would kick off this weekend with a tasty beer and some pretty drugstore matte lips. (Yes, I wear lipstick when studying. It makes me feel smart, don’t judge.)
Studying and blogging. #PARTYLIFE
I was going for a winter type theme for this picture but somehow it turned into a nativity type theme instead. Oops.
This is highly unusual this time of year, so I am very excited. It actually feels like fall/winter!
So I abandoned all plans of fall beers, (AKA I drank them before I remembered to photograph them), and I’m jumping straight into winter! For the next month or so I’ll be featuring winter and holiday beers, and eventually a few of my favorite stouts and porters that taste fabulous this time of year.
I’m also trying to feature some makeup products I love during the winter and holiday months, so hopefully all of that will get you into the season.
Also, I’ll plan ahead better so there won’t be creeper owls every Happy Hour. (Spur of the moment idea=creeper owls.) So no worries.
In case you haven’t notice, I kinda love holidays. Sometimes Mr. Danger and I make up our own because we feel like life is more fun when you have something to celebrate. That being said, there was no way I could NOT make this Happy Hour post Halloween themed.
Honestly, my Halloween costumes/plans are pretty lame this year. (Can you believe I’ve had very little time/money/graduation on my mind, and haven’t put much effort into costumes? Well, it’s true.) In the past I’ve had some good ones.
Shout out to 2012 Ms. Frizzle costume! (With Mr. Danger as Darwin-don’t ask)
This year I think I’m just going to my favorite beer place and I will probably be going as glitter. That’s right for Halloween, I’m going to be glitter. It will be great.
Now if you’re feeling more ambitious than me, that is good news! I have the perfect Halloween beer for you, as well as some fun, cheap Halloween makeup for a last minute costume!
I don’t know about you guys, but this week was even more bananas for me than usual. I mean I had to write this in my calendar so I wouldn’t forget my plans for tonight.
I should have also written, “Eat French Fries”. I have big plans, OK.
Anyway, by the time this post goes live, I should be in my pajamas, drinking a beer living up my Friday.
Speaking of things that are exciting. I had been hunting down the Wet N’ Wild Limited Edition Fall Matte Lipsticks, and I found them in a random Fergie display at my local Walgreens! I know I mentioned two of them in my Fall Trends post, but I would be remiss if I didn’t share more of the Wet N’ Wild Fall lipsticks. Because if you hadn’t heard, they are the bomb.com. Yes. I went there.
I also have the perfect seasonal beer for you. I’ve heard this rumor that in some parts of the country it’s actually feeling cooler? Since it’s still 358598 degrees where I live, I’m sticking with my Back to School Happy Hour theme for one more week. Maybe I will feel more fallish when I can actually walk into work without breaking a sweat.
Sooooo this post was supposed to be for next week and accidentally published yesterday. This is what happens when you have 13 hour work days. (ProTip: I found out L’Oreal’s Infallible Eyeshadow lasts at least 14 hours, which is both impressive and terrifying.) Anyway, I decided I might as well let this post be free, and just write a new one for next week. So without further ado:
Welcome to a new and randomly occurring feature, called Dupe or No Dupe!
In this series, we’re going to breakdown some internet rumors and myths regarding dupes!
On today’s show: Urban Decay’s Naked Palette VS. WetnWild’s Walking on Eggshells!
Although it’s a million degrees outside where I live, I love fall colors. Grad school and work are keeping me super busy so I feel like I need to start preparing my fall stash, or it’s all going to pass me by.
I was particularly inspired by Self Magazine’s Fresh for Fall Trends in their September issue. However, I wasn’t feeling like paying $34 for each makeup item.
And you know how I roll. So here are some of my favorite fall trends, on a budget!
