EOTD/BOTD: ColourPop’s Metamorphosis and Kona Brewing’s Big Wave

Hey friends!

So apparently I started this post a long time ago, and then completely forgot to finish it when my internship and new job started. Which means this post is unfortunately out of season, but hey- it’s still 100 degrees where I live,so I think I’ll cut myself some slack.

Anyway for my first EOTD/BOTD in a lonnngggg time, I have a very summery Kona Brewing Company’s Big Wave and a super easy look using ColourPop’s Metamorphosis Set.

So let’s check it out!

Happy Hour: 7 Budget Rose Gold Shadows and Dogfish Head Punkin

Hey friends!

This will be publishing a little late because someone had to take a nap.

And that someone is me. (I don’t have kids if that’s what you were thinking.)

It’s been one of those weeks. Not a bad week, just the kind of week where you spill coffee on your curtains, clean dog vomit out of your bed, and spill 32 ounces of water in your nightstand, kind of week. We’ve all been there. I think.

Anyway, my best friend is coming in town tonight so it will be all good in the neighborhood.

For this week’s Happy Hour, I wanted to share 7 of my favorite rose gold eye shadows that are all under $8! These shades range from copperish to pinky champagne, but they are all beautiful and cheap.

I’m also switching things up on you and sharing Mr. Danger’s favorite pumpkin beer! Don’t worry, he has good taste.

So let’s keep Happy Hour going all weekend!

4 Fall Eye Trends on a Budget

Hey friends!

Last week I shared with you some tips for getting 3 fall trends on a budget. Because we need money to buy all of our pumpkin spice things, not $35 blush.

This week I was inspired by an article from Harper Bazaar about Fall Beauty trends. I liked a lot of the eye trends they mentioned this season, but again I’m but a poor, humble grad student. (Also my workplace does not allow silver space eyes, sorry HB.)

So I’ve translated Harper Bazaar’s fall eye makeup trends into a language we cheap frugal buyers can understand.

Ipsy July Bag: Sensationally Sun Kissed

Hello Beauties! I’ve mentioned several times that I love small sizes of makeup and beauty supplies, because it’s a great way to try new products and expensive brands without the price. I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy for a few months now, and they’re right up my alley. At $10 a bag with 4-5 samples, this monthly beauty subscription is definitely fits in my beer budget. (And I even have money left over for actual beer, it’s a win-win situation.)

If all my mail arrived in this bag, I wouldn't be sad.

If all my mail arrived in this bag, I wouldn’t be sad.

July’s bag was probably my favorite so far this year. It was a delightful pink bag full of joy. And makeup. Continue reading
