I think everyone and their mom has already posted their review of Hello Waffle’s February Visage Box, but I finally have mine ready! (My mom did not do a review, though.)
I’ve been playing around with this box for about two weeks now, and I still haven’t been able max it out yet. I’ve got about two more looks I want to do with the products, but I only have one face. UGH. Why won’t Mr. Danger let me put makeup on him?
What I’m saying is it was another good month with Hello Waffle’s Visage box!
Look how pretty it is! Perfect for February!
I don’t have class tonight! Whooooooooot. I’ll be celebrating at Alamo Drafthouse with some coworkers who have dragged me into seeing a certain movie. (Hint: It’s not Taken 3).
Anyway. Today I’ve got one of my favorite Hello Waffle eye shadows of all time. (I feel like I say this all the time about Hello Waffle. But this time, it’s really my favorite….until she creates my next new favorite. And then I’ll have a new EOTD post to do. The struggle.)
The shadow is Heavy Breathing Cat, from the 1,000 Likes Collection. The name itself should be reason to love it. But. Wait until you see this guy.
The BOTD is Helios Farmhouse Ale (formerly V Saison by Victory Brewing Company). I picked this beer up on a whim when the bestie was in town, not expecting it to be much, and I have been pleasantly surprised by it!
So check out the eyes and beers in this weeks EOTD/BOTD!
How’s your weekend going?
Mine has been super productive. And also I accidentally ate like a pound of fro-yo last night. So I would say mine has been good, too.
I think Winter is coming to an end where I live, (we only really have two seasons: Hot and Cold/Rainy, so this is not surprising). But this weekend the weather has been gorgeous, which I interpret as “TAKE ALL THE PICTURES WITH THE AMAZING LIGHTING.” Blog writing changes your brain, yo.
So I used the gorgeous weather to focus on some gorgeous makeup, Hello Waffle’s January Visage Box. Out of all my indie subscriptions, this one continues to lean towards the dreamy, whimsical, and romantic colors, which I personally love.
Check out below to see what I mean!
We made it to Friday!
I also made it through my first week of classes as a “non-degree seeking student” AKA the person who should probably leave grad school, but is still there. (*I graduated in December, but I’m pursuing additional courses for licensure/certification in my career. Someday I’ll leave. Someday.)
Anyways, Mr. Danger and I are supposed to be celebrating the fact that I passed my certification test/graduated/started new classes tonight, but all I want is macaroni and cheese. I’ll report back on how our adventures go.
In the meantime, let’s enjoy this Happy Hour post, because it’s the weekend, and some of us even have a 3 day weekend! (ME! ME ME ME!!!!) Today I decided to share my current Holy Grail Blush, Hello Waffle’s Junebug, with you guys because it’s affordable, it’s indie, and it makes me think of Spring. In that same dream of sunshine and warmer weather, I’ve also got Harpoon’s The Long Winter Thaw White IPA. I know it’s a little early to be thinking of Spring, but I am tired of rain and cold where I live!
So let’s kick off Happy Hour!
I got to sleep in late today and it was awesommeeeeee. Probably the best thing about being on vacation, in my opinion. I am not a morning person AT ALL.
In other news, we’re almost done with the Indie Advent Calendar! These last few days have been pretty and awesome and today I found my Holy Grail Rose Gold Eyeshadow. The one I have been searching for since March. It’s Hello Waffle’s 23, and it’s perfect.
Check it out below!
It’s a Double Trouble Day!
AKA I got behind on posting! It’s because I went to three Christmas parties this past week, so I’m not even mad. That is much better than being behind on posting because of thesis. (R.I.P. Thesis)
Anyway, Day 19 and Day 20 were both awesome, so let’s take a look!
Today a Solstice Scents package arrived at my house, addressed to Mr. Danger. I was very suspicious. I don’t know if this is a gift for me, or if he went shopping for himself. These are the things you ask yourself when your husband gets into indies.
Fortunately, I know the makeup purchases are still just for me. Hello Waffle’s Visage Box for December, for example, is all mine, all mine!
I was very excited about this month’s box because I really enjoyed the November Visage box, and plus I just love Hello Waffle. Her eye shadows and blushes are some of the best in the indie world right now. And I’m working on getting a doctorate in indies now, so I know. (Just kidding. that is totally a joke. I’m over higher education at the moment.)
Anyway, this subscription is closed at the moment, but there has been talk of adding more slots in future months. I pay $25 for this box, and it includes shipping, (from Canada, to my very far away state!) Each month is supposed to include everything for a complete look!
So let’s check it out!
Hey again friends!
Hope your Friday is off to a good start!
Today’s Indie Advent Calendar post is another Hello Waffle shade, this time in “One of Us”. I ordered these back in October and I literally can’t remember what I picked, so all these Hello Waffle shades have been a nice surprise. So far I’ve been really impressed with my past self’s choices. Good job, old me!
I know I just did a Hello Waffle look last week, and I know I did a neutral look a few weeks ago, but I have to share this EOTD because it’s the easiest look ever. Throw some loose pigments on your face, mix them around and you are ready to go!
Also if you are in the mood for a lighter winter beer, I’ve got something for you today too!
How’s your Saturday shaping up?
Today’s Indie Advent Calendar is a Hello Waffle eye shadow! (Mr. Danger did not “mix” some of these items up that great, but hey-it’s a lovely shade, so no worries!)
If you’re wondering what this Indie Advent Calendar is all about, check out this intro post.
