OOTD: Feline Flair for Halloween

Happy Halloween!
One of the best parts of Halloween is dressing up (and of course, candy). Kids aren't the only ones that can have fun, adults can dress up too. I'm feeling festive and have added a few feline touches to today's outfit. It's a simple cat "costume" that's appropriate for the weather and my day ahead.

NOTD: Wet n' Wild Night Prowl

There's only a few days left until Halloween so I wanted to select a polish that would be fitting for the holiday. In last weeks NOTD I showed how to created a festive Spooky Eye nail. I understand that not everyone is into nail art so this week I've come up with another option that's simple, but fun, and will get you ready for the 31st!

Halloween Costume: Zombie Makeup Tutorial

Have you been wondering what you should be for Halloween? If you're like me, I put off deciding till the last minute. I'm usually left scrambling for a costume idea based around things I already have on hand. Going as a Zombie is a great last minute costume idea that can be really affordable by using things you probably already have at home or can pick up at your local grocery or drugstore. Keep reading to find out how to recreate this scary unisex costume and to see my YouTube video!

NOTD: Spooky Eyes - Halloween Nails

Halloween is less than two weeks away and I've decided that it's now time to start decorating... my nails, that is. Wearing festive Halloween nail art is a fun way to welcome Halloween, but I'm scared of spiders so I won't be including them, or their webs, on my nails. Instead, I've opted for a pair of spooky eyes that I think are adorable. Keep reading to get the details on this DIY nail art tutorial.

FOTD: Nude Eyes, Bold Lips

Today felt like a bold lip sort of day... I've paired a nude eye look with a bright pop of color on my lips. If you're interested in hearing more about the products I used and how I created my neutral eye then keep reading!

Your Value

Last night I got sucked into the black hole that is Pinterest. I love the site and now, after just downloading the Pinterest App to my phone, I think I'll be pinning more than ever before. You can check out my pins and boards at and feel free to follow me :)

OOTD: Fall Color Trends - Emerald & Acai

It's been a while since I've done an OOTD, but I wanted to share this one with all of you because I've incorporated a couple of the Pantone Fall 2013 colors into my look. It's not too late to check out my post on Fall Color Trends if you haven't already done so. I've combined a top in the Acai shade (or purple) with an Emerald Green sweater.

Wishlist: Scarves

It's feeling like fall and that got me thinking... I need some scarves! I don't just wanna keep warm, I wanna look cute too. I'm looking to add to my collection with new ones in bold colors, fun patterns, and warm knits.

Look For Less: Reese Witherspoon

Yesterday, I received the November 2013 issue of Glamour magazine in the mail. I started flipping through and stopped at the Dos & Don'ts article (page 64). Reese Witherspoon is shown wearing a casual outfit that she dressed up with great accessories. The magazine broke down how readers can recreate the look with 6 key elements. I love when looks are recreated, but hate when that look is so expensive that the average reader can't afford it!

That brings me to today's post. I was on a mission to find similar, great pieces and at a fraction of the cost of Glamour's choices. Keep reading and let me know if you think I succeeded.

NOTD: Peace & Love & OPI

Last night I painted my nails with OPI Peace & Love & OPI. It's a gray metallic with purple and green duo chrome. I thought the application was wonderful and I'm crazy about the end result. 

There are a few look-a-like polishes out there so if you want a similar look, but can't get your hands on OPI Peace & Love & OPI, there's hope! Essie For The Twill Of It is an exact dupe whereas Essence Where Is The Party? and Zoya Ki are similar to Peace & Love & OPI, but they're not identical. Let me know in the comments if you've seen any other similar polish(es).

10 Beauty Things I Suck At

I was tagged by Amelie from All Things Glitter and Beauty to do the Beauty Things I Suck At tag. I took it a step further and came up with 10 things that I suck at... because it wasn't hard to think of beauty things that I, basically, fail at.

September Favorites

I just gotta say, I'm happy September is over. Every other month this year flew by for me, but for this one it seemed I was living in slow-motion. I am so looking forward to October!

My Monthly Favorites are going to bed a tad bit different; no makeup favorites- sorry. I was sick for the majority of the month (it was Sick September) and I rarely wore makeup. When I did, I reached for my past favorite products. In case you didn't know, so as not to be too repetitive, I only include products that I haven't mentioned in a previous Monthly Favorites.
