Indie Advent Calendar: Christmas Day Haul!

Hey friends!

I hope you’ve had a fantastic holiday! Mr. Danger and I had two awesome days with both sides of our families. We are super lucky to have families who we love and enjoy spending time with, and a good time was had by all!

For the final Indie Advent Calender day, Mr. Danger threw a bunch of bath products in a box, and it was such a nice little haul with Haus of Gloi, sixteen92, and Solstice Scents products. I am a very spoiled lady!

Let’s check it out!

Indie Advent Calendar: Christmas Eve-Solstice Scents

Hey friends!

I’m just going to be upfront, this is pretty much a teaser post. Please use your holiday spirit to forgive me!

We celebrate Christmas in the Danger Household, and we celebrate Christmas Eve with my family and Christmas Day with Mr. Danger’s family. Because of this when I opened my Indie Advent Calendar box for today, it was pretty cool, but I don’t have time to review it all until we get home from all the holiday fun in a few days!

However, I wanted to keep the calendar going, so I’m going to share what was in the box! I also sneaked a peek at tomorrow’s box, and it’s a nice haul, so stick around for the final day!

Indie Advent Calendar: Day 23-Performance Colors’ Paprika

Hey friends!

It’s Christmas Eve-Eve! Usually, we get together with friends on this day, but it’s pretty rainy and gross outside, so I think Mr. Danger and I will be staying in. Perhaps even cleaning our house that hasn’t been the same since thesis deadlines/the flu-plague overtook our lives.

I don’t know about you guys, but often I just put on lipstick to wear around the house. Even if I spend all day cleaning today, I’ll probably put on some lipstick. In my opinion, life is too short not to wear lipstick whenever you feel like it.

Thankfully my Indie Advent Calendar treat for today is Performance Colors’ Paprika lipstick, a lovely warm red shade. I’m wearing it right now to do laundry, and it’s lovely.

Check it out below!

Indie Advent Calendar: Day 22-Hello Waffle’s 23

Hey friends!

I got to sleep in late today and it was awesommeeeeee. Probably the best thing about being on vacation, in my opinion. I am not a morning person AT ALL.

In other news, we’re almost done with the Indie Advent Calendar! These last few days have been pretty and awesome and today I found my Holy Grail Rose Gold Eyeshadow. The one I have been searching for since March. It’s Hello Waffle’s 23, and it’s perfect.

Indie Advent Calendar: Day 21-Sugar&Spite’s Duran

Hey friends!

Is all your holiday shopping done? Or are you one of those people that gets an adrenaline rush from last minute shopping. I, personally avoid stores from Black Friday until New Years, unless it can be helped. Online shopping FTW.

Anyways, Mr. Danger and I got our shopping done early this year, as evidenced by this indie advent calendar. Today’s little treat is the last scent in Sugar and Spite Bathery’s Yule Collection, Doran. 

More on that perfume below!

(If you’re just joining the indie advent calendar, check out its origin story here.)

Indie Advent Calendar Days 19 & 20: BPAL and Hello Waffle

Hey friends!

It’s a Double Trouble Day!

AKA I got behind on posting! It’s because I went to three Christmas parties this past week, so I’m not even mad. That is much better than being behind on posting because of thesis. (R.I.P. Thesis)

Anyway, Day 19 and Day 20 were both awesome, so let’s take a look!

Indie Advent Calendar Day: 15- Sugar & Spite’s Solstice Perfume

Hey friends!

I can’t believe it’s Dec. 15th already. This month/year has really flown by for me! I’m hoping to take it slower now that my semester is over and The Thesis is turned in. Really stop and smell the indie perfume oil, and that kind of thing.

Today’s Indie Advent Calendar treat is another perfume from Sugar and Spite Bathery’s Yule Collection. Quick summary from my other post: loved their Halloween perfumes, and wanted to try the Yule Collection. Fast shipping, and no problems with my order at all. (You can read about these experiences here and here, if you need some more info on this company.)

Anyway let’s check out today’s scent, Solstice!

Indie Advent Calendar: Day 14-Glamour Doll Eyes’ Hollywood Affair

Hey friends!

I hope you had a great weekend! I woke up this morning with NO impending deadlines, and it was such an awesome feeling!

Today’s indie advent calendar was perfectly timed and I was able to wear it out to brunch. I think you’ll be impressed with this lovely blush by Glamour Doll Eyes. Even better, most indies have closed up shop for the holidays, but GDE is still in operation, so you can have this on your doorstep before Christmas!

Anyway, check out the blush below!

Indie Advent Calendar: Day 13-BPAL’s Jazz Funeral

Hey friends!

It’s been several hours since I submitted my thesis, and life is looking good. Mr. Danger is taking me out tonight to celebrate. I will wear all of the glitter. All of it.

Today’s indie advent calendar treat was a very nice surprise. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about Jazz Funeral by BPAL, (to be honest I remember ordering it because it pushed me out of my comfort zone).

Check out my thoughts below!

(And if you want to know why little gifts keep appearing in boxes, you can check out my intro post here.)

Indie Advent Calendar: Day 12- Hello Waffle’s One of Us

Hey again friends!

Hope your Friday is off to a good start!

Today’s Indie Advent Calendar post is another Hello Waffle shade, this time in “One of Us”. I ordered these back in October and I literally can’t remember what I picked, so all these Hello Waffle shades have been a nice surprise. So far I’ve been really impressed with my past self’s choices. Good job, old me!
