What do you get when you pair wild oats and bourbon together?
If you answered, “Well, Bren, you obvs get a wild night with a super hot, totally scruffed out babe like Crush of the Month alum Jon Hennessey or super hottie Adam Levine,” then you’re not entirely wrong. But I actually have this amazing candle by Nest Fragrances in mind…
Crush of the Month is a column featuring my latest, greatest, cutest crush on a some hot babe in the beauty industry. This isn’t just about looks though; these babes are extremely talented as well.

I remember the first time I saw Darais. It was circa 2007 and I awake stupid early (8am) working a trend show at a local Nordstrom. The store had yet to let people in, so I was doing my usual artist-scoping when I saw one of the hottest guys I had ever seen in my life over at the Lancôme counter. He had an edgier, more rock n’ roll look than I’m used to seeing at Lancôme; tattoos, face scruff, bedhead and I think he might have even been wearing leather pants. I’m not even gonna lie: I was straight. up. staring.
A letter of caution to all my future boyfriends (I’m looking at you, Adam Levine), or to any dude who wants to date a beauty blogger, makeup artist, or product junkie. This is your cheat sheet. Learn it. Know it. Live it.
Those aren’t my hands, but that is my actual lip print.
I have a confession to make: the main goal of my entire adult life has been to manifest my inner JEM. This obviously involves tons of cosmic dance parties, wearing bright shades of pink, and adding sparkle to everything. There’s no such thing as too much sparkle in my life.
Clearly, Urban Decay understands where I’m coming from. To help me get my synergy on, the brand is releasing a new line of glitter-infused eyeshadows collectively known as MOONDUST. There are seven gloriously sparkling shades, all perfect for wearing while dancing around in your panties to Bowie in your bedroom at midnight.
I am all about SPARKLING HARD, all the time. If it sparkles, I want it, and I want it harder than anyone else. My quest for all things sparkly and glittery is a little ridiculous, I’ll admit, but the new PixieDust polish from Zoya is NO JOKE y’all. Girls (and some dudes probably) be going HAM for this, and it’s easy to see why.

With every year that passes, I get older, half as pretty, and twice as drunk. Fortunately, it’s the opposite situation for my blog. This baby just gets cuter and radder with time. Since I recently celebrated my 4th “blogaversary“, I thought it was time for giveaway! I mostly avoid giveaways but I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my tequila bottle for all of your clicks, likes, tweets, and shares. I know, I know: I’m the sweetest.
