    31 Nights of Horror – Fear

    The memory of hunkering down at midnight, under the couch with my sister to watch this film is actually more piquant than watching it in the present. Fear, is so bizarre and pretty unsettling. I thought that William Petersen (the dad) was such a fox, I don’t know what this says about me…? He plays the overprotective patriarch of his…

    For the Love of Pixies

    Alright ladies, (and gentleman) I am having a hair dilemma. I am at that stage where it feels frumpy and too long and usually what I do at this point is just cut it all off into a pixie and start again. Seems drastic but I love a pixie, so low-maintenance and they look effortlessly chic but I also think…

    Yes, Please Palette First Impressions!

    UPDATE: After struggling for the last 45 minutes to make this work – it’s a dud. This is a perfect example of why ya’ just cannot trust swatches. The shadows went on OK but there was quite a lot of fall out and kick-up, the shadows were actually fading while I was applying them – this has never happened! I…

    31 Nights of Horror – Sinister

    This movie will be one of the few modern horror movies that I have on my list. It isn’t that I haven’t seen a lot of the newer horror movies, I just don’t like them. They often times go too far and are just all around doing too much! I don’t like gore for the sake of gore or weird…

    Sample Saturday – Living Proof

    Today’s sample came in my August Birchbox, it is the Living Proof Restore Mask Treatment. This was a great sample size and I was able to get 3 uses out of it, I have shoulder length hair. My hair isn’t particularly dry but it is coarse and wavy, and I use masks frequently to keep it from getting frizzy. Living Proof…

A pack of teens in the blossom of their youth, a secluded summer camp that was the site of a tragic death, a murderer hiding in the trees and picking people off, a severe…

    New at the Drugstore Haul!

    And by drugstore, I mean Wal-Mart. I went there this morning for coffee since they are the only ones who are open super early and managed to have way too much fun in the makeup aisle. I was on the hunt for a couple of new releases and they literally had everything that I have been wanting to check out – that…

    31 Nights of Horror – A Nightmare on Elm Street

    This movie changed the game for me, not only did I have to worry about getting serial-murdered in the real world, I was also now susceptible in my dream world. Freddy first appears in the dreams of teenager, Tina Gray and attacks her with his razor-blade embellished glove. Tina, thinking that it was just a nightmare is horrified to see…

    Ms. Frizzle Costume – ft. Modcloth

Halloween can get expensive and it makes me feel better when I am able to re-use my purchases. I am doing Ms. Frizzle this year because I haven’t crimped the dickens out of my hair…
