My Blogtober Break

Hello Friends! I apologize for not sticking to Blogtober. I was doing really well but I started getting more in tune with my health and focusing on myself health and also I graduate Grad school this month!!! I have one last assignment and I will officially be a gal with her Masters in Public Health!! I want to make sure I am still getting my posts in because my blog is my passion but I also have wanted to put a lot of focus into school.

I also have been trying to look for online jobs so that I can make a little bit of money to help out. Sometimes I feel guilty that I don’t work but at the same time I remember that I would be spending what I make at a job to pay for daycare and that just doesn’t make sense. If anyone knows of great places to make extra money from home let me know in the comments!

I hope everyone is doing great! How is your October so far? I don’t know about y’all but I am so excited for this holiday season and for 2018. I have a feeling that it is going to be a great year. Also I am thinking about doing a get to know me better post so leave me questions in the comments that would be good for that.

Thanks loves! Till next time

Halloween Look #1

This will be a quick little post friends but I wanted to share some of the halloween looks I have done. This is one of my favorite looks I have ever done. Me and my husband dressed as a Voodoo Doll and a witch doctor. The look took me many hours to put together and about an hour to apply. I could see but not very well, which meant no driving for me and drinking was difficult. I had to use a straw and eating was not possible. But I had a blast scaring people and everyone wanted to take pictures which is always fun for me!

It took lots of liquid latex, masking tape, hemp string and fake blood.

Over all was such a fun night and costume. I loved it!!!

Your Lash Bar Review

Your Lash Bar: Full review. Friends lets jump in!

As part of my goals I set for myself each month, I usually have one that is about getting dressed and accessorizing and in general putting myself together more often/better, even if I don’t leave the house. So as part of that, that means putting my face together. I always look for new lashes and I have some that are absolutely amazing and love but that doesn’t mean I don’t continue to look for others for my collection. I have decided to try out this brand Your Lash Bar which I found on instagram.

They are super affordable: 3 for 15$ or 5 for 25$ or 6$ each. IMG_2397I picked up these 3 styles. Top left is Kamikaze. Top right is Bellini. Bottom is Manhattan. All their lashes are named after drinks, so cute! I also picked up this lash applicator tool, I usually use tweezers which works great but I thought I would give this a try. I love the packaging. The marble with the rose gold lettering and the drink glasses in the letters. All the little details are beautiful.

The lashes are nice quality at such a great price. They are not too heavy and don’t weigh down the eyes, which of course is important. Bellini and Manhattan will definitely be staples in my lash rotation. Kamikaze will probably be more for special looks and photos because of how over the top they are.

Overall these lashes are a total hit! Give them a try and let me know what you think!
