Happy Hour: Benefit’s Gimme Brow and Breckenridge Agave Wheat Ale

Hey friends!

This Happy Hour is particularly exciting because I am done with grad school! FOREVER. I feel like everyone needs to stop, drop, and celebrate. Where ever you are, whatever you are doing-I invited you to join the post-grad school celebration!

And on that note, I have a really great drinkable summer beer to share with you, Breckenridge’s Agave Wheat Ale. I also am doing a mini-theme for Happy Hour this month: Favorite Splurge Products! Although I’m totally frugal  cheap, even I have to agree that there are some products that simply can’t be dupped. So this month I’ll be sharing my favorite beauty and makeup products that I think are worth it, starting with Benefit’s Gimme Brow! I’m also going to include a cheaper dupe version if you aren’t feeling my high priced option.I try to be here for you.

So let’s check it out!

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!

Happy Hour: No Label’s Forbidden Lavender Wit and Wet ‘N Wild’s Petal Pusher Palette

Hey friends!

How’s your week?

I’ve been having so much fun doing the #yogaandbeer challenge on Instagram. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you can find me @beautyonabeerbudget, showcasing beers and myself awkwardly doing yoga poses! (Which big surprise, has also helped me feel a lot more mentally sane this week. Who knew yoga was calming?!)

And if you’re new to the blog because of the challenge-heyoo! Welcome! Happy Hour is my Friday feature where I share my favorite beers and budget makeup of the week. Because beer and makeup go together. They do. Trust me.

Anyway, I’m so excited about Happy Hour this week because it showcases two of my favorite things: purple and lavender. YES. These are my favorite colors/scents and they translate very well into beer and makeup. So today I have No Label’s Forbidden Lavender Wit and Wet N Wild’s Petal Pusher Palette.

Happy Hour: Maybelline MasterConceal and Ballast Point’s Habanero Sculpin

Hey friends!

I’m back! Sorry for the random absence, I went out of town and then things were just bananas. I got back Tuesday and I still haven’t unpacked my suitcase.

But in good news, I’m in the final stretch of the danger zone! I have about 20 days of grad school and internship left and then I am done!!! Like for real done. No more grad school done. No more tuition and text books done. DONZO.

It’s going to be so beautiful.

To celebrate, let’s enjoy this very random pairing for Happy Hour: Maybelline’s Master Conceal, an essential basic you need in your makeup collection, and Ballast Point’s Habanero Sculpin, a spicy, novelty beer that you also probably need in your beer tasting collection.

Happy Hour: Sinful Colors Spring Nail Polish and Dogfish Indian Brown Ale

Hey friends!

How are you? By the time you read this, I will be driving off into the horizon in my new car. And by that I mean I’m visiting by bestie this weekend!! (And I did buy a new car. FINALLY. I’ve had the same car since 2004 and it was a hot mess. I sorely needed a new vehicle since I live in a state with the worst public transportation EVER.)

All of this calls for a celebration! So let’s kick off Happy Hour! Today I’ve got some fun Sinful Colors glitter toppers and a cool twist on an Ale by Dogfish Head, their Indian Brown Ale.

So check it out!

Happy Hour: NYX’s Illuminator and Ballast Point’s Grapefruit Sculpin

Hey friends!

So so so so sorry for the belated post!

Some of you may recall I’ve had a busy few weeks, (that I’ve been very vague about.) I’ve had a bunch of half written posts, but so many things have come up I’ve never gotten to finish them and then I become irresponsibly late on publishing them. Hey, better late than never, right? I think. Maybe.

BUT! I have a really good reason for all the lateness, that I can finally share! Because I got my Master’s in December, I’ve been able to apply for new jobs that I couldn’t do before without the higher degree. Last week, I had 5 interviews, (hence the utter exhaustion), and yesterday I was officially offered a position at what is basically my dream job. SO I HAVE BEEN CELEBRATING! WHAHOAFHODJ. (That is me dancing and shouting in excitement.)

I can’t actually share the details of what my job is, because it’s in a field that values confidentiality, but rest assured, I am so so so thrilled. And hey, perfect late timing, let me share a delicious beer and lovely makeup product with you to celebrate!

Thank you for your patience with my unpredictable posting, and enjoy this Saturday Happy Hour!
