Halloween Makeup Inspiration

Hi everyone,

Planning on going all out for Halloween?  Need something last minute? (I understand).  If you you don't want to go out and buy a costume (if there are any left), makeup is a fun way to dress up without really "dressing up".  Also if you are dressing up makeup definitely completes the look.  Halloween makeup is a chance for you to be super-creative and crazy (without being judged for it).  Here are some inspiring makeup looks for you.

Dressing up this Halloween?

My Fall Must Haves

Hi everyone,

Fall to me is accessory time because you get to wear a variety of cute accessories to make your look, without freezing while doing it (Winter).  I know that we are well into fall already, and I have already become reacquainted with some of my favorite fall items, but I thought this would make for a nice little post.
I don't know about you but here are my fall must haves :) ....

  1. A portable thermos/mug.  For tea of course! Tea is a perfect companion for a morning comment to class.
  2. A beanie... for a "rather blustery day".  Also a nice scarf is nice.
  3. Booties.  I bought myself a couple this season and I have been loving them.  I usually wear tall boots,  but it is good to switch it up; especially when the weather permits.
  4. Leather jacket.  This is one of the top must haves for the season (and it should be it)!
  5. Dark lip color.  I need must  go shopping for one.  Not too dark though! Any suggestions?
What are your fall must haves?

Classic Fall

Hi everybody,

Here is a nice fall makeup look.  This look is like a nice fall twist on this look that I did a couple posts ago.  The main difference is the added neutral eyeshadow and and a bit of bronzer.  Also if you want to make this look even more fall like add a darker color lipstick (than the one pictured).  Maybe a wine color?  I the cool thing that this whole look is based off of the lipstick so you can have fun with your choice of lip color here!

What color lipstick would you wear with this look?

Let's Chat #24: Getting Perspective

Hi everyone,

We've all been there where are wallowing in your own sorrow, it doesn't seem that way to you but to others it can.  I am not talking about genuine warranted sadness here, (or even clinical depression) just a random type that creeps up on you.  When we are caught in a pickle out problems seem enormous and if we are too caught up with ourselves everything seems to be a problem (make sense?).  If we are caught up in ourselves we tend to make little problems into huge ones because we can't see anything else.  It is a concept that is a bit hard to explain, but we are almost all guilty of it (me included) once it a while.  We need to just snap out of it!  

Although you can be forced to snap out of it by facing a bigger problem, that isn't something we really want.  So here are some ways to get out of your rut and get some perspective!

  • Listen to music:  This can either make things better or worse.  Do not listen to sad music it will make you more depressed.  Sometimes I listen to sad music when I am depressed and it usually adds nothing to the cause.  Listen to happy music or relaxing music (maybe even some rainforest sounds or something haha).
  • Watch a funny movie: sometimes it can be hard to find a comedy that actually makes you laugh especially when you are in a funky mood but find an old favorite.
  • Read: take yourself into another universe with your favorite characters. :)
  • Go outside!  This is my personal favorite.  Go outside and do something, anything.  A change of scenery is sometimes all I need.  Even if you   run some errands at least you will feel accomplished.
  • Talk to someone:  Go see what someone else is up to and maybe vent a bit.
  • Occupy yourself: (self explanatory).

Hopefully this is helpful to someone.

Daring Darling

Hi everyone,

I saw this dress and I wanted to I had to make an outfit post.  I love the color and the lace!  If only the  top was a little less sheer (in the bust area).  Due to the dress, the makeup must be classy and closer to the understated side.  I think the look that the model is wearing would be great for it, because it doesn't look to overdone.  It is just the right amount of makeup for the look and the updo is just perfect.

Let's Chat #23 Catching Up and More...

Hi everyone,

Considering I haven't posted in a long while I suppose it is time for a "Let's Chat"...

I as you have imagined,  I have been extremely busy.  I had tons of studying to do for four exams.  On top of that I had to study while I was under the weather.  Well now I am free!... Sort of... I have another exam next week, but today I decided to make blogging a priority.

Since I spent the whole week studying.  I am going to offer some advice for when you are overwhelmed with tests; or just overwhelmed in general.

  1. Organize.  Know your due dates/deadlines.  Personally, I love using a physical planner and really don't like using my phone.  There is just something about using a physical planner to see everything laid out,  that makes me feel more organized; I update it religiously and I hardly would ever check or update dates on my phone.  If the phone works for you fine.  But if you really have a ton of things to juggle I recommend an old school planner.
  2. Prioritize.  For example, when you are faced with many exams (especially if they fall only in a couple of days) you must plan how you are going to study!  Yes it is a must.  As soon as possible plan out what you will study (and how) you will study each day.  Here are some questions to think about when prioritizing :  Which test is first?  Which class is most difficult? What type of studying would best fit the format of this test?
  3. Do not procrastinate. If you have lots on your plate you don't have time for junk.  But, that being said,  you do have time for breaks... to keep your sanity of course!
  4. Know when enough is enough.  In other words don't work indefinitely and go to sleep!
  5. Once everything is said and done give yourself a pampering/relaxing day at the end, you've earned it. (That day is today for me).
Happy October everyone!
