Halloween Outfit Idea's

The time has come to where fall is here, which means the leaves are on the ground and the air is crisp. It is Halloween again. Unlike last year, I have no idea what I want do or what I want to dress up like or if I want to dress up at all.

I know that I am not too old for dressing up but I am not the person that wants to be all kinds of slutty with my outfits. I do not want to be a sexy nurse, sexy kitten or a sexy/naughty anything. That is simply not me. Instead I want to be something that is funny, Like THING 2 from Dr. Susses or even Rainbow Brite..but not sexyfied, maybe raver style. Umm ,that is a thought.

With Halloween on a Wednesday this year it kind of messes thing all up. So this up coming weekend everyone is going to be celebrating with parties and going out in costume, Yet for some reason, I want to spend it with my family and loved ones. So, do I dress up to stay home and take pictures to post on facebook,instagram,and tumblr or do I actually get dress to go out and hang out with crazy drunk people.

Either way, I fell that if you are staying in or going out just make sure you are safe.

I will leave you with my last year makeup look for Halloween

HAPPY Pumpkin Hunting Month


I love fall. It is my favorite time of the year. I love the change in the weather, wearing sweaters, and drinking cider and pumpkin lattes. YUMMMMM

Along with the Pumpkin hunting, cider and sweaters, fall brings forth new makeup trends and looks.

Some of my favorite fall makeup trends are smokey eyes using plums or purples, and plum or berry lips. I love the way the look and how they look with the fall sky.

Have a great Monday !

Do you really need the all the eyeshadow pallets out there

Hi there,

In the last several years I have found that pallets either eye shadows are just the all in one pallets are growing in my collection.

For some reason I can not get enough of them. Naked 1&2 check, Smoked check, and the Wet 'N Wild Color Icons check. I just get cannot seem to get pallets out of my head.

I have so many now that the thought of pay for a single eyeshadow kind of bugs me. In the past the pallet used to be you only like 1 or 2 colors and the rest were a big waste. Now, all of the pallets I own are AMAZING. I love every single color.

The question that I ask my self is : Do I need all of these pallet? My answer is always yes.

I am really happy that brands like Urban Decay & Two faced are making pallets that appeal to everyone. from smoky eyes to neutrals and everything in between. I always feel that you are getting a better value when you are purchasing pallet at like 50 bucks a pop versus 15-20 or even 24 bucks per shadow.

I other thing that I am loving right now are the make your own shadow pallet. Brands like MAC, Bobbi Brown, and now Urban Decay have options for you to "create your own" pallet. This is to insure that you get only the colors that you like. All of this is a wonderful idea, especially if you are picky person and do not like shimmer or matte.

Whatever you decide to do on this situation just be sure that you are getting the most for your money. Just because it is the latest and hottest makeup item does not mean it is right for you.

Good Luck
XO- Melissa
