Fun Facts Friday

1. Ski season is here and liftopia is where it’s at.

Sugarbush Lift TicketSnow has been dusting and I am so ready to hit the mountains. If you haven’t already used liftopia it’s an awesome site for getting discounted lift tickets all across the country. I used it a few times last season and this year I’m super excited to check out some mountains I haven’t snowboarded at yet, I’m looking at you Killington!

2. 15 minute Greek pasta salad does wonders for week night dinners.

Greek Pasta SaladI pinned this awhile ago from Tasty Kitchen and found a long day at work mixed with having no desire to go to the grocery store was the perfect excuse to test it out. I used my favorite Maple Grove Farms of Vermont dressing and it crushed. It was literally so simple but it really hit the spot. It made sooooo much pasta salad (you have been warned) but I didn’t even mind having it for lunch for the next couple of days.

3. My November Ipsy Glam Bag was sort of a disappointment.

November Ipsy Glam BagThe Products:

it Cosmetics: Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer

This stuff is powerful, I put too much on my hand before putting it under my eyes and I was convinced it would never come off. I suppose that’s a good trait in a concealer though right?

SeaRX: Birch Sap Moisturizing Lotion

I could go either way on this lotion, I put it on after washing my face and while it burned a bit (negative) I also noticed my face didn’t dry out over night (positive).

J Cat Beauty: Wonder Lip Paint

No. No. No. I suppose I could use this for a Halloween face painting costume but otherwise it’s a bit too much for my liking.

Marc Anthony: Oil of Morocco Argan Oil Volume Shine Hairspray

I wanted to love this stuff because it smelled amazing and was the perfect travel size but it left my hair feeling dry and didn’t keep the fly aways down.

Starlooks Cosmetics: Eye Pencil

I think I would like this in another color, olive isn’t really my thing but it was subtle enough that I would keep it in the make up bag.

I really liked September’s glam bag, last month was okay but this month just didn’t fit. At $10 a month it’s not exactly breaking the bank but I do hope the next couple months are better!

4. Tuesday night bowling is a necessary stress relief.

Tuesday Night BowlingI like bowling and I’m not afraid to admit it. $10 for 3 games and shoes? Yes, please!

5. The Growler Garage is a must visit.

Growler GarageThe Growler Garage has been on my to do list for quite some time now and with guests coming into town last weekend we finally pulled it off. It was a really cool building with lots of fun touches I mean table bases made from tires, that’s just plain awesome. Of course most importantly there was a great craft beer list to choose for tastings, I was a really big fan of the Veridian IPA from Banded Horn Brewery Company.  As the name implies you can have growlers filled right there and the other half of the store is a retail store with all sorts of beer from around the world. I said before, you must go check it out if you are ever in the Burlington area.
