The Halloween Countdown….Are you ready?

Alrighty folks! It’s almost here! It’s the holiday that promotes costumes, candy and camaraderie (and eventually cavities). That’s right- it’s HALLOWEEN! YAY!

I love Halloween! Not only is it a free pass to gorge myself with Hershey kisses and Reese’s cups, but I get hang out with my friends in super cool costumes! Anyone who knows me will also know that I love dressing up (my motto: If you’re well-dressed, you’re at your best!) , and Halloween is no exception. Every October I spend hours sprawled out on my bedroom floor, sewing on beads or attaching fur to some fanciful creation that will evolve into an awesome Halloween costume. This year I have been hot-glueing a ton of sequins and fur trim (but I can’t tell you what my costume is- it’s a surprise). Hopefully, you’ve started working on your Halloween costume as well- if not, you still have time to come up with something awesome. Make your own costume or buy a pre-made outfit at a costume shop or Spirit Superstore. Don’t wait till Friday at 5pm to make a costume for the party you’re going to at 7pm. Don’t be this guy.

Fall’s most wearable trends….

While perusing the world-wide web in search of fall/winter make-up trends, I came across this awesome article from InStyle. This Season’s 9 Most Wearable Trends lists some awesome fashion advice that will boost your fall look from drab to fab. Some of the trends are easy to embrace, like the burgundy lip and the bold feliner. Others, like the slicked back hair and grunge waves, might be hard to wrap your hair around (pun intended). I encourage you to try at least one of these trends this week- I’m going to start with the darker lipstick.

Summer’s over and Fall has begun. Shake up your look and have some fun! (oh look! a rhyme)
