Happy Hour: Wet N’ Wild Coverall Correcting Palette and Dogfish Head Piercing Pils

Hey friends!

How’s your Friday? I’m about to enjoy my last one before Summer Semester starts, (AKA my last semester of grad school, thank you very much!), with a nice, long bubble bath. And a beer. Naturally.

To kick off Happy Hour I’ve got a really delicious pilsner by Dogfish Head and a Color Correcting Palette by Wet N Wild, that will be great for your upcoming summer adventures.

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!

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!

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?!

Subscription Sunday: Aromaleigh’s Ephemera Box- February 2015

Hey friends!

How’s your weekend going? The best friend and I are having lots of fun. And French Fries. We won’t stop eating them.

I am very glad she was in town this weekend when I’ve been playing around with my February Aromaleigh Ephemera Box because she has been like my Color Cheerleader. I was worried about the beautiful, bright pops of color in this box being too much, (as I’m a neutrals gal), but she’s been there for me with, “GIRL, THAT BLUE IS GOOD.” “YEAH, THAT GREEN IS AWESOME!”

So I’m feeling pretty good about my makeup colors skills, and about this months Ephemera box!

Aromaleigh: Feast of Lupercal Collection Review

Hey friends!

Welllllll, if you read this blog with any sort of consistency, (and even if you just randomly stumbled on it), I think we can all agree: I don’t need anymore eye shadow.

But did we all see the previews for Aromaleigh’s Feast of Lupercal Collection? Because if we all did, then we can all agree that I needed those shadows. I needed them! It was like my Holy Grail Collection! We are talking gorgeous pinks, purples, and neutrals. This is what Rebs’ dreams are made of!

I compromised and bought deluxe sample sizes. TREAT YO SELF.

Was it worth breaking my low buy? (LOL, low buy. LOL.) Read on and find out!

Eye of the Day/Beer of the Day

Hey friends!

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!

Indie Advent Calendar: Day 23-Performance Colors’ Paprika

Hey friends!

It’s Christmas Eve-Eve! Usually, we get together with friends on this day, but it’s pretty rainy and gross outside, so I think Mr. Danger and I will be staying in. Perhaps even cleaning our house that hasn’t been the same since thesis deadlines/the flu-plague overtook our lives.

I don’t know about you guys, but often I just put on lipstick to wear around the house. Even if I spend all day cleaning today, I’ll probably put on some lipstick. In my opinion, life is too short not to wear lipstick whenever you feel like it.

Thankfully my Indie Advent Calendar treat for today is Performance Colors’ Paprika lipstick, a lovely warm red shade. I’m wearing it right now to do laundry, and it’s lovely.

Check it out below!
