Halloween Costume Idea 2: Catwoman

Howdy!

Okay, for this constume, it's not quite my style, but I think it would be cute maybe if your boyfriend dressed up as batman or something!

All you need are:
Black Leggings/ yoga pants ( Leather leggings would be really cool too)
Black boots, or ballet flats
Black long sleeve shirt
Cat ears (I saw a kit that comes with a tail and a hat and stuff at walmart for under $10)

Easy as pie! Keep in mind though that It might get a little chilly depending on where you live, so dress accordingly!

Wishing I had Wednesday

Hey guys! Surprise blog post today! woot woot!

I thought I would start a new series called Wishing I had Wednesdays. Basically, Its just a list of things that at the moment, I would really enjoy having in my possession! I don't want to sound bratty or greedy in these posts, but these are truly just somethings I been lusting after lately.

Here we gooooo...

1. an iphone. My phone is sooo dead. After breaking/ losing two other phones, my current phone is the LG chocolate. It's reallly old. That being said, I reallly need a new phone, and since the iPhone 5 is coming out, the price of the iphone 4 has dropped to $1! Things look good for me! ;)

2. A cute monogrammed iphone case! I've been looking at one's from the etsy shop: Simply Monogram and I love all of them! It's going to be really hard to chose one :/

3. A yellow zebra scarf. I don't know why I want this scarf so  badly! It's such a weird scarf, But the OOTD that Sarahbelle93x Did a few months back has really made me want it. It's been on my christmas list for months.

3. Riding boots. I know they're a complete necessity for any girl, yet I have yet to find the perfect leather pair. I have a tuape suede pair that will do for now, But I really want a leather pair to go with more things.

Cardigan
4. I want a long cardigan. One that I can wear with leggings and boots and be good for the day. I really like these from J.Crew, but they come with a hefty price tag :P

5. Lastly, I've really been wanting a date to homecoming, so if you know any single guys out there, let them know I'm available ;) Just kidding. I'm actually thinking my friend Eleni and I will hold an Anti-Homecoming party. (we're losers we know ;)

Tip Tuesday: Softening a Bold Lip Color

Hello peoples!

Sorry I've been kind of M.I.A. lately, I've been back in school for about a month, and it's starting to catch up with me :/
Anyways....

Fall is quickly approaching (the first day of fall is september 22nd) which means bold and dark lip colors are coming back into style as well. Some of my favorite bold lip colors include The revlon Lip butter in Raspberry pie, and the Maybelline Lipstick in Royal red.

During school though, sometimes it's hard to wear bold lipcolors because a. you might think they're too bright, or b. you don't have the time to reapply them thorough out the day. One easy was to fix this is to use a thick coat of lip balm (such as an eos or burtsbee's) underneath the lip color. this will sheer out the color, and make it apply easier though out the day. It's my favorite trick in the book! :)

Furry Friend Tag!

Hey guys! Today I thought I would do a post about my doggie whiskers! I saw this tag on youtube and really wanted to do it here on my blog!

Here's some pictures of my doggie :)
 right when we got him


 right when we got him

during thanksgiving 2011 (the other dog is my cousins)

 Thanksgiving again.
when he was "fixed" ;) ->


Okay! So let's get started with the tag!

1. What is your pets name? His name sis Whiskers, but I call him cutie pie, or "my puppy" a lot.

2. What Kind of Pet is it, and What breed? He's a dog (in case you couldn't tell) and He's half australian terrier, half Pomeranian. He's pretty much the size of a large cat, but he looks like a Yorkie, as you can see.

3. How long have you had your pet friend? We got him in august of 2009, so three summers!

4. How did you get your pet? Okay, I actually love this story! My grandpa was a painter, and during the summer of 2009, he exhibited in a local art fair. I was wandering around with my mom and Whisker's and his current owner was walking by so I said to my mom "Look at that adorable dog mom!" Apparently the girl heard us because she told us he was for sale. I immediatley knew that we had to get him. My parents had a Collie before I was born, which we sadly had to put to sleep when I was in fourth grade, so I was really wanting a dog after not having one for a few years. After a few days of convincing, we finally got my dad to agree to let us get Whiskers, and the rest is history!

5. How old is your pet? His birthday is May 13th 2009, so he's about 3 and a half calendar years, I always get dog and human years confused lol.

6. What are some quirky things about your pets personality? When he's hungry or out of water, we flips his bowl over and hits around our kitchen like a hockey puck. It's kind of cute, but it gets really annoying after a while. He also likes to army crawl all over on the ground and make wierd growling noises. He's a weirdo.

7.What does your relationship with your pet mean to you? My relationship with Whiskers means a lot to me because he's really MY dog. Our collie was really my parents dog, but whiskers is more my responsibility  He's like a brother to me almost. :)

8. What are some favorite pass-times with your pet? A couple of weeks ago, my brother got a see-through light up bouncy ball home from school, and that's pretty much the only thing that my dog will fetch, so that's fun. I also like to chase him around the house and psych him out. I know, I'm weird lol.

9.What are some nicknames that you call your pet? Oops! I kind of already answered this, but puppy, cutie pie, monkey butt, whiskers pie, butt face (when i'm mad), wierdo, puppie doggie, baby doggie, and probably other stuff that I can't think of.

I hope some of you guys do this tag! twitter me and I'll go read it!

Favorite Fall Nail polishes!

ALL PICTURES IN THE BLOGPOST WERE TAKEN BY ME
Howday ya'll!

Today I thought it would be a good day to post about fall nail polishes! Fall is my favorite time of year to paint my nails because of the the awesome neutral colors you can use!
These are my favorite colors to use in the fall!

Let's get started!

Okay so the first color I'm going to be talking about is the one on the far right!

This is Sinful colors last chance and I love this color. I got mine at walgreens last year for $1.99 to wear to homecoming and I ended up wearing it a ton through the fall and the holiday season. It's a very dark green that almost looks black on your nails, but with two coats its looks killer!

Next color is second from the right (you can see the comparison of the two greens above, (it's more true to color in the group picture than the one below)
This shade is also from sinful colors, it's called Leap Flog ( i sense a typo here lol) It's similar to Last chance, but different enough to justify spending the $1.99 haha. This color on your nails is more of a grayed green. It almost has a turquoise tinge to it, but none the less, gorgeous. 

Next color is third from the right
Wet cement from wet and wild is a really nice color. It's very comparable to OPI's you don't know jaques. Its a grey brown, that in certain lights looks almost purple.I got mine from walgreens in January and probably wore it for the remainder of the month. This polish also features a nice wide brush.

Leftmost color


Stranger tides from OPI is a gorgeous color from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection. Although this collection is discontinued, they come out with colors very similar to this pretty often. This color is almost a green khaki, which makes it super unique and neutral for the fall time. 

Bottom most color
Sorry for the glare, but this color from sally hansen is a gorgeous grey, almost black with tons of silver glitter in it. I like this color because I can put it on and wear it for the entire week just because it's very versatile yet fun at the same time.

This hue from sally hansen is another all time favorite. It has a wide brush which makes for easy application. I've had this color for a while and have actually turned my cousin Rose onto it as well. We both agree that it's one of our favorites for fall. It goes on a darker red color that complements my hecka-pale skin, but also looks great on Rose who has a slightly tanner skin tone. 

Last but certainly not least:
This color from the OPI Spider man collection is freakin gorgeous. I talked about htis in my Summer nail polish post as well so I won't ramble. This color is very shiny and irredescent, it looks like a differnt color from every angle!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and feel free to comment and tell me your favorite fall nail polishes down below!

Tip Tuesday: Sensitive Ears

Hey everyone!

Today's tip Tuesday is going to be how I keep my pierced ears under control. My holes are very sensitive. I used to be able to wear my pearls everyday, but even those gold-plated studs are to much for my sensitive ears. I usually wear the earring that I got my ears pierced with because they are locked, so they don't fall out, and they don't irritate my ears.
    One thing that I do find that keeps my ears not hurting is neosporine. My mom and I learned this trick from my grandma. If you put neosporine gel on your earring posts before you but them in your ears, they don't hurt at all. (sorry if you squeamish) when I do this, my ears don't get the brown discharge on the back that I usually get which is not a fun time. So if you just put on the neosporine, even if your not wearing any earrings, I can almost guarantee that they'll be a lot easier to deal with!
