Halloween | Gaunt Ghoul

"It's the mosttttt wonderful timeeeee of the year." Wrong song but totally right holiday! Halloween is my most favorite time of the year. The cool weather, trick or treating, apple picking, the Halloween makeup - I love it all!

I've been creating looks for Halloween on the blog for a few years now. This year, I really wanted to focus on easy looks that anyone can do with simple steps and not have to spend a lot of money to get the look, y'know? 

Here's my first look! The gaunt ghoul, although this can be the base makeup for so many other looks. Add fangs and you have a vampire! Add some bandage wrap and you have a mummy! The possibilities are endless.

September Faves

I think this is my first time ever saying that I don't mind September ended because hellllllo, October! Come to mama! But seriously. October is bae. I do, however, want to share with you guys my September faves because I have a few that I really want to share with you guys that I've really been loving. Do you guys like these type of posts? I like them because they kind of sum up the must haves between all the reviews and makeup tutorials.

The Two Wet N Wild Products You NEED For Fall!

*Affiliate links used.

Oh hot damn, Wet N Wild! Okay, I've been a long time fan but sweet kabobs - their newest collection have me swooning - and wanting so, so much more! 

I recently saw the Wet N Wild Fantasy Makers display for Halloween at bmy local Walmart a few days ago and grabbed a couple of their newest goodies to try out. Total whim! Normally, I like to check swatches and what not, but I figured at $4.68 each, it wouldn't hurt my wallet too much if I didn't like them (plus, I think you can return them as long as you have the receipt).

Cargo + Camo Cutie

*Affiliate links used.

We're a few days into it officially being fall and the cool weather has shown up - not that I'm complaining! It's been nice to have to put on a jacket. Speaking of, fave jacket? Hands down, I love cargo jackets in the fall. Anyone else?

PS. I always keep it real with you guys so a little behind the scenes secret: I was not feeling myself in this. I really want to bring more style and fashion posts to my blog. I'm normally not one to let anything get to me but...I had to use my tripod (usually Ant takes my pictures), couldn't get it to sit straight (one of the boys broke one of the legs), my shirt rolled up unbeknownst to me and I didn't have enough butter for all my belly rolls.

Truth is, I wasn't even going to post this. I did let it get to me. I thought about how companies might see this and think that I wouldn't be a good candidate to work for them because my shirt has fuzzies on it, I totally have a double chin and my belly hangs low (does it wobble to and fro?) without Spanx.  I thought others would think, "GIRL. NO." I let this post simmer in drafts for a few days, tearing myself apart, every day on how I didn't look like everyone else.

So here's a big middle finger to myself for doing all of that for no reason because I'm posting it anyway, you jerk.

Fall Decor Faves From Bulleye's Playground at Target

* Affiliate links used.

It's the middle of September and I'll letting my fall/Halloween decor freak flag fly loud and proud. I'm obsessed with fall and Halloween, guys. Like, OBSESSED. So, when my love for Halloween and fall mixes with my obsession with Target - especially their Dollar Spot or "Bullseye's Playground" - you best believe, damage is about to be done - but, hey, at least it won't hurt the wallet, y'know?

I've rounded up my five favorite fall decor items from the Dollar Spot at Target. Yup, that means everything is $5 or under! So go ahead and tell your hubs that you're heading out to Target for milk and get your shop on. Just...don't forget the milk. Y'know, can't let them know our secret code word.

Urban Decay Born To Run Palette

* Affiliate links used.

I finally did it, you guys! I caved and bought the Urban Decay Born To Run Palette during the Sephora VIB Sale a few weeks back. It was a total moment of weakness as I had a gift card, plus 10% off, plus ebates was running a 3% back deal so I mean, it was kind of a no-brainer to grab it, y'know?
