Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Wishing all of you a safe and happy holiday. I spent the weekend celebrating Halloween by going to a birthday party (I was dressed as a cat, see below). I'm not much of a Halloween person so I went with the simplest costume.


However, I did enjoy carving my two pumpkins...they turned out quiet nice. :)


And finally, for those who live near a Chipotle, if you show up in a costume today from 3 pm to close, you can get any salad, burritto, bowl, etc. for $3 as part of their "Boorito" special. Enjoy!

Friday Favorites

Happy Halloween weekend! For those going out and celebrating, be safe! Halloween is my least favorite holiday (Christmas is my favorite-- can I start playing Christmas music after this weekend?!), so my costume this year isn't too exciting or original: I'm going as a cat. :) I am, however, looking forward to seeing all the creative costumes other people come up with. I'm anticipating there to be a lot of political ones this year. Anyways, onto my favorites for the week!

1. This adorable costume. He's a mini candy corn. I found this on Ellen's twitter (from the Ellen Show). Cuteness overload. :)

 

2. This. This is so me. Anyone else feel me?


3. The upcoming 20% off sale at Sephora for VIB Rouge members. There are NO exclusions and this runs from Nov. 4th-7th. I'm planning on purchasing this limited edition set, and this mask set. The sets alone are a great deal, and even better so with 20% off.

4. Hobby Lobby. A new store just opened near me and I am in LOVE. It's like a cross between Home Goods and Michael's, two stores I also love. I've gone twice already.

5. This nail polish color. It's my new fav. I will be wearing it with my Halloween costume. Very fall-ish, a combination of blue and black.

Have a safe and Happy Halloween!

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! I have been playing catch up this week since I was out of town last weekend on a mini vacation to Phoenix to visit one of my best friends. It was my first time in Arizona and I found Phoenix to be so similar to Palm Springs.

 


 

And now, onto my favorites for the week.

1. All Things Fall
We visited a farm while in Phoenix that had a pumpkin patch. It was beautiful to walk around on the grounds.

 

2. This little gadget right here. I use the much more pricier version (this one), and have been looking for a cheaper one for ages. This one has excellent reviews, so I'm eager to see how it fares. It also comes in a two pack.

3. For all you ladies who wear painful high heels (because all cute heels hurt, right?), I just ordered this spray to try.  It's an anti-blister spray that you put on before wearing your heels, and it apparently forms a barrier on your foot that protects from blisters.  It also has rave reviews. I really hope this is the miracle product people make it out to be.


4. Pumpkin pie squares! I am making this recipe that I posted last year this weekend.

 

5. And finally, this book. It's the first of a four part series. If you love Italy and lots of characters, pick this up stat!


Have a great weekend!

Stranded Series Linkup

Happy Wednesday! Today, I am linking up with Shay for her monthly stranded series to answer the question, "What three types of Halloween candy would you take with you if you were stranded on a desert island?"  After compiling my list, I saw a common theme: Chocolate. Lots of chocolate.

As a child, I remember "ranking" my Halloween candy after a long night of trick-or-treating. I would dump my entire candy sack out in my room and segregate the contents based on my own personal ranking system.  The top 3 were the first to be eaten, so these are the ones that I would take with me on my island:

1. Snickers (You can never go wrong with this one.  Nothing beats a king size Snickers bar).
2. Twix (You get TWO of these per pack...double the yum!).
3. Milky Way (For when I'm sick of peanuts).

And on the flip side, since we're sharing our three favorites, here are the three worst offenders that I would find in my Halloween bag:

1. Dots (Do they still make those? They taste like plastic).
2. Mounds (Coconut with chocolate should be banned.  At least in my world.  Too overpowering of a flavor!)
3. Now-and-Laters (I call these wanna-be Starbursts).

Looking forward to seeing what everyone else chose!
