Happy Hour: Valentine’s Day Pink Lipstick and Banana Bread Beer

Hey friends!

Guess what!? It’s Friday! And my best friend is in town!!!!

Ahhhhhh, happiest of weekends!

My best friend and I have been besties since I was born, (She’s older by 9 months, and always had more hair.) so there will be much laughter and beer drinking this weekend. Mr. Danger already has the taps set up for her arrival.

Anyways, the weekend of the BFF kicks off Beers I ♡ Month! This month will be featuring some of my favorite beers, and some Valentine’s Day inspired makeup choices. Because hearts and pink and chocolate. Yeah, Valentine’s Day theme!

So let’s start Happy Hour!

Happy Hour: January Favorites

Hey friends!

This post is coming out a little bit later than usual due to technical difficulties. And by technical difficulties I mean, I am sleepy. I’ve been really busy lately and it came down to “Sleep? Or blog?” Sleep:1 Blogging:140

Anyway, I’m here now with my January Favorites post! I haven’t done one of these in awhile, and this is a sad thing because I have lots of favorite things, like Oprah. Except I don’t have a sticker yet. I should work on this…

Anyway for my favorite makeup (mostly indie this month-sorry, mainstream friends!), budget buys, and beers, check out this week’s Happy Hour!

And be sure to stick around for February because I’ll be starting a new Happy Hour theme: Beers I ♡. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, because that’s the way to my heart, friends.

Happy Hour: Bath Sabbath Beard Oil and Gulden Draak

Hey friends!

It’s Friday! I made it through my first week of classes! I don’t have a lot of homework this weekend! I am eating pizza tonight! All the exclamation points!

Anyway, today’s Happy Hour is a little bit different. I really wanted to review Bath Sabbath’s Beard Oils that I got Mr. Danger for Christmas. Since, I myself don’t have a beard, I decided to let him take over this week’s Happy Hour as a special guest poster. Don’t worry, friends, he may or may not have a degree in using words. You should be in good hands.

So, if you or someone in your life would like a luxurious beard, or perhaps one of the best Belgian beers of allllllll time, stick around for Happy Hour!

(And if not, I’ll be back this weekend with a Subscription post.)

Take it away, Mr. Danger!

Happy Hour: Current Holy Grail Blush and Harpoon’s The Long Thaw

Hey friends!

We made it to Friday!

I also made it through my first week of classes as a “non-degree seeking student” AKA the person who should probably leave grad school, but is still there. (*I graduated in December, but I’m pursuing additional courses for licensure/certification in my career. Someday I’ll leave. Someday.)

Anyways, Mr. Danger and I are supposed to be celebrating the fact that I passed my certification test/graduated/started new classes tonight, but all I want is macaroni and cheese. I’ll report back on how our adventures go.

In the meantime, let’s enjoy this Happy Hour post, because it’s the weekend, and some of us even have a 3 day weekend! (ME! ME ME ME!!!!) Today I decided to share my current Holy Grail Blush, Hello Waffle’s Junebug, with you guys because it’s affordable, it’s indie, and it makes me think of Spring. In that same dream of sunshine and warmer weather, I’ve also got Harpoon’s The Long Winter Thaw White IPA. I know it’s a little early to be thinking of Spring, but I am tired of rain and cold where I live!

So let’s kick off Happy Hour!

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!

EOTD/BOTD!

Hey friends!

Hope your week is going well! It’s Wednesday, so that means if it’s not going well-you only have two days left! You can make it!

Anyway, I think I’m going to start posting more eye looks on my Instagram account, @BeautyOnABeerBudget, hollaaaa, but I am internet shy, so it’s going to take some courage on my part. (Really! I didn’t get a Twitter account until 2014, so I am an internet grandma, basically.)

Anyway for now, I definitely feel more comfortable sharing my eyeballs in this medium so it’s Eye of the Day/Beer of the Day!

In Technicolor today! With more chocolate beers!

Read on!

Happy Hour: Favorite Drugstore Primer and Stone Smoked Vanilla Bean Porter

Hey friends!

I am having the best day. Mr. Danger and I watched Guardians of the Galaxy in our pajamas and had pizza for breakfast. Now our out-of-town friends are coming over tonight for more pizza and delicious beverages. (This is really all it takes to please me.)

We’ll be grabbing a few more beers to serve tonight, (which I’m sure I’ll be posting on Instagram, heyyyyooo @BeautyOnABeerBudget), but today’s Happy Hour features a tasty Winter one to get you through the weekend.

Plus, if you are anything like me, you got a bunch of makeup for Christmas. (You may or may not have also gotten a ton of glitter, that could just be me.) If you’re looking for a fabulous primer for your new eye shadows, I’ve got a great drugstore one for you!

So let’s start Happy Hour!
