There's a makeup brush set for every fandom out there: Harry Potter, Beauty and the Beast, even Mean Girls. After seven seasons Game of Thrones, the show finally got its own brush collection, too. And my, was it worth the wait. Created by British makeup brand The Catch 96, the Thrones-inspired set comes with eight brushes each adorned with one of the emblems from the family houses: Baratheon, Lannister, Stark, Targaryen, Martell, Greyjoy, Tully, and the symbol for the Hand of the King. They also feature each family's respective sayings, from the Lannisters'"hear me roar" to the Starks' "winter is coming." The brushes come finished in silver, gold, rose gold, and copper, and sets include five shadow brushes, a fluffy powder brush, a brow and lash comb, and a liner brush. On top of that, they are now on sale. Formerly $80, the set is now half off at $40. We haven't been this happy about anything since Jon Snow and Ygritte's infamous cave scene. Get a closer look at the makeup brushes, ahead.
Tipping is a custom that allows you to express appreciation for a job well done. But when it comes to salon, spa, and nail services, it can be hard to decide who and how much to tip - especially on a color job gone wrong. And while tipping is at your discretion, here are a few suggestions on amounts to give in a variety of circumstances. See the guidelines below.
Credit: Four Points Today is International Beer Day, a day marked by celebrations of malt beverages throughout the world. Local taverns, breweries, and restaurants are getting in on the action with special events to commemorate the beer industry and its importance. Hotels are also taking part, and Four Points has a special series of events planned across the globe over the next few weeks as Four Points Best Brews Around the World kicks into action. Four Points, as many beer lovers and frequent travelers are already aware, features a Best Brew at each of its hotel locations. This Best Brew is a specially selected beer that is popular in each specific location and that is judged to accurately reflect local tastes and culture. In keeping with the beer- centric theme of Four Points, the Best Brews Around the World will offer a competition at each of the spotlighted locations, with two different beers competing for the title of Best Brew. The winner will not only gain bragging rights, but will also gain Best Brew status, earning the right to be featured on tap at that specific hotel location. Audience members are among those who will be tapped to help crown the champion at each event, so everyone can join in the fun. Here are the six locations taking part in Four Points Best Brews Around the World: [list] [*]August 3, 2017 Four Points Midtown Manhattan West (USA) [*]August 9, 2017 Four Points Cancun Centro(Mexico) [*]August 23, 2017 Four Points Kelowna(Canada) [*]September 13, 2017 Four Points Melbourne Docklands(Australia) [*]September 20, 2017 Four Points Nairobi Hurlingham(Kenya) [*]October 2017 Four Points Barcelona Diagonal(Spain) [/list] Yesterday's competition at Four Points Manhattan Midtown West is already in the history books.

We found what may be the most '90s, fabulous way to celebrate your love for the little pink feline: holographic body glitter. Yes, now we can all re-create the look of the most popular girl in middle school who doused her face and shoulders with Graftobian Shimmer, luckily without the sticky residue. That's because the good people at Sparkle Pig Glitter took the time to create holographic freckles in the shape of Hello Kitty, which can be applied with just some Vaseline. While you could get retro with it and apply these on your neck and dcolletage like said eighth grade cool girl, it's 2017, which means people put glitter wherever they damn well please. We love the idea of sticking it on your lids, which brings new meaning to the term "cat eye." Or you could apply it on your roots for your next rave cat-lady convention. You could even jump on the booty glitter bandwagon, because, why not?
The culinary scene in Lake Charles has grown significantly over the past few years. There has been a growth of new restaurants doing truly fantastic dishes and they are making their presence known with local foodies. But, along with that rise, there are a few old favorites that have stood the test of time. Personally, the one place that keeps me coming back is Darrell's Famous Poboys and their mouth watering Darrell's Special.
Since 1985 Darrell's has been serving up some truly awesome poboys. Their commitment to quality shows in their food and has been rewarded by the loyalty of their customers who have been returning time and time again for lunch and dinner since they've opened their doors. It's no surprise to see the parking lot packed no matter what time of day you visit. And I am willing to bet the majority of orders coming out of the kitchen throughout the day and night are the exquisite Darrell's Special.
It's actually a pretty simple sandwich. You've got fresh cut ham, turkey and made-in-house roast beef, lettuce (I normally pass on this because...it's lettuce), mustard, mayonnaise (regular or jalapeno), your choice of cheese (American, Swiss or Provolone) and the absolute best roast beef gravy I've ever had. The beauty lies in the simplicity. Or is it the gravy? It might be the gravy.
While sitting at the table awaiting your order you'll notice a very large stack of napkins.SPOILER ALERT: You will need these.The Darrell's Special is as messy as it is delicious. They're very generous when it comes to the roast beef gravy, which is certainly not a bad thing. To quote their website Unless you use at least 10 napkins, you're doing it wrong.
Now don't get me wrong, there are other great tasting poboys on the menu as well. The BBQ Beef is really good and I've heard the Surf & Turf is almost as popular as the Darrell's Special. Almost. But for me, it's that signature sandwich that gets me every time.
No matter what I'm doing in Lake Charles, I make it a point to stop in and grab a Darrell's Special. It truly is that good. Next time you're in Lake Charles stop by and see for yourself. Please visit Bite and Booze and follow us on twitter and instagram @biteandbooze!
