Black Violet’s Aromatic Blackbox Quarterly Subscription

Hey friends!

Remember how I’m behind in my posts? Well, here’s another one for you that I’m finally getting around to posting about, Black Violet’s Black Box Subscription. I apologize for the delay, but I had to take 3 baths to do a full review of this, and that can be time consuming!

Anyway, I am here today with my thoughts on the second installment in this new quarterly subscription, so let’s check it out!

EOTD/BOTD: Hello Waffle’s Mendelssohn

Hey friends!

Oy. Tuesdays and Thursdays are bringing me down. Internship all day and class until 10pm. I’m trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel, because I’m almost done with grad school. Does the light have beer? I hope so. This post has beer, at least. We can start there, with a review of Brideport’s Bear Hug Cherry Chocolate Stout.

I also have an EOTD/BOTD of an easy cheesy work look you can do when you just want to sleep or possibly never wear makeup again. (It’s not been my top priority lately, TBH.) I used Hello Waffle’s Mendelssohn, but any pretty light pink shadow will do.

So let’s check it out. (See the period there? I’m too tired for exclamation points.)

Happy Hour: Freeman Masks and Black Raz

Hey friends!

This is the shortest Happy Hour ever because I am headed out of town! I decided in light of the bananas week I’ve had, today would be a good day to share some of my favorite relaxation products, the Freeman Black Sugar Mask and the Chocolate Strawberry Mask. And keeping that theme I have a chocolate raspberry beer, Black Raz that is sooooooo decadent and delicious.

So check it out!

Subscription Sunday: Black Violet’s Blackbox-Clue Edition

Hey friends!

How’s the weekend treating you? I had really grown up adult expectations of going to bed early to do work on Sunday. And then Mr. Danger decided to brew and we stayed up until 1:30 in our garage, bonding with our next door neighbors, instead. Adult life choices, right here.

Due to this lack of sleep, I have a change in plans for my Subscription Sunday post. I’m pushing my Hello Waffle Visage Box review back until tomorrow morning. I hadn’t finished my FOTD look with the Visage box yet, and now that I have massive bags under my eyes, I’m going to wait until I look better to photograph my face. Vanity, thy name is Exhausted Rebs.

This means that I have a brand new subscription box to review for you today! Black Violet’s Blackbox! I’ve been stalking this box since I first heard of it’s creation in January, and I was so thrilled to grab one. It’s a mixture of skin and hair care products, plus perfume! 

There will be more slots opening in May, so check out what I thought!

Happy Hour: Hello Waffle’s Finishing Powder and Rogue’s Voodoo Doughnuts Ale

Hey friends!

We made it to Friday!

I am a bit sad because it means my grad school Spring Break is over, but also a bit joyous because it’s Happy Hour!

And today I have my new Holy Grail Finishing Powder to share with you, AND Voodoo Doughnut beer by Rogue. So it’s all too wonderful to be glum for long.

Check it out!

Subscription Saturday: Fortune Cookie Soap Box- Spring 2015

Hey friends!

So the Fortune Cookie Soap Box isn’t a makeup subscription, but it is a subscription that I didn’t get a chance to squeeze in this week. And that totally counts for Subscription Saturday! (Sometimes I forget that I work full time and go to grad school, and blog posts just don’t come out in the timely manner I want. BOOOO real life!)

This is my third Fortune Cookie Soap Box, and I was loving the Alice in Wonderland theme for Spring. The minute I opened the box, it was floral scents and pops of color in my face! I was excited!

So check out what I thought!

Rainbow Honey Mystery Bag: January 2015

Hey friends,

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day, if you are an American! And Happy Monday, if you live somewhere else!

I finally got my wish! I get an extra 24 hours!!!!! (All I want is more time.) I’m off work today and it is beautiful. I am so productive. Which needed to happen because I may or may not have still had some Christmas decorations up.

Anyways, I also have used this weekend to get ahead with some blog posts! (Homework for grad school? Not so much. Priorities, friends, priorities.)

The weather this 3-day weekend has been so beautiful, and it matches perfectly with Rainbow Honey’s January Mystery Bag. The colors and scents of this bag all remind me that Spring is on it’s way. (At least where I live, sorry people who have snow.)

So let’s see what I got!

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: Coastal Scents’ Brush Set and Clown Shoes’ Angry Beast

Hey friends!

I have a very loosely connected theme here for this Happy Hour. I wasn’t feeling particularly creative this week, so I grabbed a beer and a beauty product that were both gifts to review.

The Coastal Scents 22 Brush Set, actually went on my trip with me, and I’ve been using it since then. I’ve been dreaming about The Clown Shoes’ Extremely Angry Beast since before my trip. So there you go, gifts and trip. That’s my theme.

I plan to work on the theme for next week’s Happy Hour, but I’m currently experiencing a brain failure after sitting down for my licensure/Big Girl Career test this morning. Now all I can think of is sparkles and a nap.

So enjoy this delirious Happy Hour post!
