Happy Hour: July Favorites!

Hey friends!

It’s the FINAL COUNTDOWN! I have exactly:
-1 Final
-1 Presentation
-1 Day of Internship and
-2 Class Sessions

AND THEN I AM DONE WITH GRAD SCHOOL FOREVER AND EVER!!!! (And it will be forever, because if I ever go back to higher education it will be for a PhD. I’m not doing this Master’s level BS again. NOPE.)

Anyway, my joy is palpable over here. I’ve been expressing it by resuming a normal sleep schedule and starting to exercise again. I even went to this place called a park, which is apparently an outside area where people who aren’t in grad school go, and I went for a run. It was pretty exciting stuff.

I also decided to write a July Favorites post. I haven’t written in a Favorites post in a while, or any post for that matter, so I figured it might be interesting to share what makeup I’ve used this past month as I fought through my last month of grad school.

ENJOY!

Darling Clandestine: Spring and Grab Bag Review Review

Hey friends!

How’s it going for you? I picked a bad week to stop drinking coffee. (Just kidding that would never happen. I meant to say I picked a bad week to stop abusing coffee.) It’s just been a very long and tiring week.

Good thing perfumes always make me feel better. (Specifically ones that smell like coffee, thank you Circassian, thank you.)

I’ve got a review of some of Darling Clandestine’s Spring scents and then a review of some of her Classic Scents from my Grab Bag purchase.

As a newbie to DC, I had a lot of fun with my little haul, so read on!

February Favorites!

Hey friends!

I’ve missed you so! How have you been?! Anything exciting happening in your life or the internet? I heard about a dress, but that’s about it. (Grad school turns you into a hermit.)

I finally got through my slightly hellish week of projects and midterms, and I’m feeling pretty good about life! This morning, I finally got to swatch some eye shadow, and let me tell you, putting tape on my skin has never been more satisfying. (TBH, I guess this is not hard to achieve.)

Anyway, while I get caught up with all the lovely pretties coming your way on the blog this week, I’ve got my February Favorites! You know, on March 7th. Not belated or anything.

PS: Did I tell you I missed you all?!

I’m too pleased with myself for making this graphic. Every time I see it, I giggle and think, “Like Oprah.”

Darling Clandestine’s Valentine’s Day Release

Hey friends!

I feel like I’ve been spending these past few months honing my sense of smell for my first Darling Clandestine order. I’ve heard this indie perfume company offers amazing, but interesting scents. It was a challenge I had to accept. Also there’s sharks. So I was down.

After months of strenuous nose training, (insert sniffing montage), I was ready. And the day finally came to place my first order, with the release of Darling Clandestine’s Valentine’s Day perfumes. 

So what did I think of my first DC order? Let’s put on “Eye of the Tiger” and find out!
