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!
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’m a little late but I have the Glamour Doll Eyes’ OTM up for review today! This costs about $8 a month, if you can catch one! (It’s pretty intense trying to get a sub.)
I hope you had a great weekend! I woke up this morning with NO impending deadlines, and it was such an awesome feeling!
Today’s indie advent calendar was perfectly timed and I was able to wear it out to brunch. I think you’ll be impressed with this lovely blush by Glamour Doll Eyes. Even better, most indies have closed up shop for the holidays, but GDE is still in operation, so you can have this on your doorstep before Christmas!
Anyway, check out the blush below!

Sad news: No Happy Hour post today. Finishing the thesis while having the flu didn’t give me a lot of time for beers and makeup. (In fact, I put on makeup for the first time in a week yesterday and my game was so off. My eyeliner was all over my eyes, for example.)
I promise Happy Hour will be back next week. Maybe with twice the beers as penance?
Happy news? I do have an advent calendar post for you! We have a Glamour Doll Eye’s Blush in Risky Business!

It’s the third day of Christmas, and my true love gave to me…some Glamour Doll Eyes’ blush! (i.e. I pointed him in the right direction.)

Or EOTD and BOTD.
I’ve been working on starting up this little Wednesday feature for awhile now and I think I’m finally ready to go live with it.
(Edit: Apparently I was not ready to go live because this published with no pictures in it. Opps, let’s try this again!)
In a quest to feature more beer and more eye shadow, (two of my favorite things), I thought I would try a weekly feature showcasing a delicious beer and an eye look.
I’m not a master of make up, but I’m hoping the EOTD can help those of you who are wondering, “What the heck is she doing with all those powdered pigments?” (Maybe only Mr. Danger is wondering that, but still). Or maybe I can just help you get some inspiration for your own eye look! Or maybe you just like glitter. I’ll be trying to address all these needs.
In my Happy Hour posts, I usually feature beers that are seasonal or have mass appeal so those new to craft beer might find something they like. These BOTD features are going to be beer reviews of just about anything and everything, so you never know what might show up.
So that’s the plan for these weekly posts. I might play with the format a little as time goes on, but let’s go ahead and roll out Week 1!
Well, I managed to get a Glamour Doll Eyes’ OTM box this month! It was an exciting day for me as these $8 subscriptions go like hot cakes each month. They’re usually released when I’m at work with the slowest internet connection known to man, (like really, really, really slow. I think I could actually hear the internet wheezing in pain), so it’s not everyday I succeed in this endeavor.
And I’m glad I did, because I adored this month’s OTM!
If you’re new to Glamour Doll Eyes their Color of the Month subscription is not necessarily reoccurring, but sold by the month. For example there were 12 month, 6 month, and 3 month subscriptions. At this point in the year there are only 1 month and 2 months, left. My internet only allowed me to get the 1 month, which means I’ll have to battle again in December if I want the OTM then. It’s intense, but worth it!
Check out what I got and maybe you’ll be battling, too:
Hello cute box that I will re-use for Christmas presents.
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:
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!
Wow that is a lot of eye shadow!
