I hope you’re all having a wonderful day, and if you celebrate Christmas, a wonderful Christmas Eve!
Today’s EOTD is the look I’ve been wearing to holiday parties this year. I’ve been in the mood for a bold lip, so I’ve tried to come up with a pretty, but subtle, sparkly look. (Although tonight I’ll probably be wearing green glitter eye shadow. Because I can.)
The BOTD is a hard-to-find, but delicious Gingerbread Stout that’s perfect for Christmas. It was worth the beer hunt!
So check out the EOTD/BOTD!
I am writing this post in the middle of getting ready for Christmas party # 3. (Which I believe to be my final, but who knows.) Since most of my week has consisted of:1. Work 2. Stay Up Late Doing Christmas Stuff, I’m still catching up on blog posts.
But we don’t skip Happy Hour! Not when today’s beer is the most delicious Chocolate Stout Ever! And the makeup product is the cheapest way to do your brows!
So let’s check it out!
Today’s Happy Hour features my favorite drugstore foundation and foundation brush. Although I’ve been trying to move exclusively to cruelty-free makeup, I can’t quit Revlon’s Colorstay foundation. And I’m never quitting Real Techniques brushes, because they are a great bang for your buck.
For beer, we have one of my favorite Christmas Ales on the market. Is it sad that I love this time of year because holiday and winter beers are the best? I mean I enjoy it for other reasons, but this is really the best season for beer.
So let’s start Happy Hour!
I know I just did a Hello Waffle look last week, and I know I did a neutral look a few weeks ago, but I have to share this EOTD because it’s the easiest look ever. Throw some loose pigments on your face, mix them around and you are ready to go!
Also if you are in the mood for a lighter winter beer, I’ve got something for you today too!
I’ve got a pretty purple eye look today and a fabulous Christmas beer. Check out the EOTD and BOTD!
Hope your Black Friday is treating you well! There are a lot of makeup sales going on right now, but so far I’m behaving myself. We’ll see how long my will power holds out.
In general, I’m not a big fan of Black Friday, (I hate crowds), but I am a fan of dark beers and lipstick.
So for Happy Hour today, I picked one of my all time favorite beers ever, which happens to be part of Southern Tier’s Blackwater series, their Creme Brulee Stout (get it? Blackwater? Black Friday? PS: I’m on a lot of medication right now for the rudest Sinus Infection ever, so excuse any weirdness).
I also finally got my hands on some Colourpop lipsticks. I’ve been eyeballing them for awhile, but I thought they were probably over-hyped. $5 for a long-lasting, pigmented lipstick just seemed to good to be true.
But I decided to just jump right in when I saw their holiday collection, Forget the Fruitcake. $30 for 6 lipsticks, and free shipping was just too nice to resist.
So do the Colourpop lippies hold up to all the hype? Check it out below:
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.
It’s super cold where I live!
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.
There he is.
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. 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:
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!
