Happy Hour: Sunsets and Seas’ Fall Collection and Karbachtoberfest

Hey friends!

Sorry I disappeared for a bit! Apparently adjusting to my new found dream job has taken more time than I thought. Mostly in the sense that my free time usually involves me laying and staring a wall. My brain is broken, you guys!

Seriously, I’ve had the worst writer’s block lately. Which is hysterical because I write reviews, you would think this would not happen. But I take all my pictures and then I find myself struggling to find words to describe items. I just keep thinking, “Good, this is good. This is okay. This is meh.” None of these thoughts are super helpful in reviewing beer and makeup.

So I decided to try and break my writer’s block by posting anyway. If my descriptions are more lackluster than usual, forgive me, as I fight through this verbally barren time in my life.

And today’s Happy Hour is, of course, a word heavy post because I decided to switch it up and review perfumes and bath bombs for Happy Hour! I tried out Sunset and Seas, Hello Waffle’s new beauty and bath line, and I wanted to share! She had Fall Scents! Which go great with Octoberfest beers like Karbachtoberfest!I had to do it!

So check it out!

Subscription: Hello Waffle’s Visage Box- June 2015

Hey friends!

How’s your Saturday?

I’m working on a paper right now, but I knew I had to get this post up. I’ve seriously been finishing it for about two weeks, and for various reasons it never got completed. BUT. I do not give up! So here I am today with a very belated review of Hello Waffle’s June Visage Box. Better late than never. Sure!

The difficulty of getting this post finished made me reflect on the way I’ve been writing some of these reviews, and I may be changing the way I do them soon. I’m open to your thoughts, so more musings on this near the end of the post.

But for now: makeup!

EOTD/BOTD: Hello Waffle’s Mendelssohn

Hey friends!

Oy. Tuesdays and Thursdays are bringing me down. Internship all day and class until 10pm. I’m trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel, because I’m almost done with grad school. Does the light have beer? I hope so. This post has beer, at least. We can start there, with a review of Brideport’s Bear Hug Cherry Chocolate Stout.

I also have an EOTD/BOTD of an easy cheesy work look you can do when you just want to sleep or possibly never wear makeup again. (It’s not been my top priority lately, TBH.) I used Hello Waffle’s Mendelssohn, but any pretty light pink shadow will do.

So let’s check it out. (See the period there? I’m too tired for exclamation points.)

Subscription Sunday: Hello Waffle’s Visage Box-May 2015

Hey friends!

Sorry for my absence lately, you’ll never believe this, but I’ve been kinda busy. I started summer school this week, celebrated my birthday, started my summer internship, and I’m wrapping up my old job and moving into my new job!!

Due to this general wackiness, I’ve got one more post planned for tomorrow and then I’ll be taking a week off from blogging to catch my breath and get settled into all the new things I’ve got starting up this summer.

Anyway enough life events, let’s check out the Hello Waffle May Visage Box!

Happy Hour: March Favorites!

Hey friends!

It’s weird how March was only 12 days long this year. If you tried to convince me there were 30 days this past month, I would probably shake my head sadly for you, because it just didn’t happen. At least that’s how it felt to me.

It was hard to pick out favorite things since this month was only 12 days long, but I managed to create a March Favorites post because I have a duty to my readers. Also because there were a lot of pretty things and good smelling things this month.

So check out what made the favorites cut for the shortest month of the year!

EOTD/BOTD: Hot Cross Bunnies

Hey friends!

Other than my Instagram account, you will get no April Fool’s jokes for me. Because I work in a profession where April Fools can be a time of great torture and strife.

So we’re skipping straight to Easter with this EOTD! And the BOTD is good for the Spring, too!

So let’s check it out!

Visage Box by Hello Waffle: March 2015

So this post technically should have come out yesterday, but my puffy eyes were not up to a photoshoot, so I moved it. But I’m here today, with a review of the March Visage Box by Hello Waffle, including a look with the products! Puffy eyes and everything!

The packaging was spot on for the theme this month!

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?!
