Easy last minute Halloween costume ideas

Happy Halloween!

I have some quick and easy last minute costume ideas for those who are like me and love YA books.


All you need for this look is simple. Black, Black, Black.

Top from Target

Black Jeans from Target

Boots from Target
less than $50

As long as it's black, it's good to go!

Swap the top with a white button down and you're Candor. Replace the boots with black dressy shoes.

White button down Target

Abnegation is all things gray and simple.

Swap the black jeans for green khaki's and you're Katniss from the Hunger Games.

Most of these items are probably already in your closet!

Have fun and stay safe!

I was pretty excited to receive this product to test out because what girl doesn't love to play with make-up?

Color Club Insta-this-swatch

Today I bring to you a swatch of this gorgeous bright cobalt blue creme from Color Club in the shade Insta-this.
I'm pretty sure this is a birchbox exclusive shade.
I got a sample of Color Club's Put-a-pin-in-it *Swatch here* and had some points to spend so I got this shade to try out.

Maybelline Great Lash limited edition mascara-Totally Teal review

Okay, these Maybelline Great Lash colored mascaras were Limited Edition and supposedly only available for the month of August, but I've seen them around here and there still so I thought I'd go ahead a do a review on this.
And if you can't find this product, I'm sure they'll have them again sooner or later.

Maybelline- Volum'Express The Colossal-Cat Eyes review

Hey, Everyone.

While I was out and about shopping I stumbled upon Maybelline's new mascara-The Colossal Cat Eyes.
This is a new product for the US, I'm pretty sure this has been released elsewhere for a while now...correct me if I'm wrong. 

The packaging alone drew me in. I'm a sucker for animal prints, what can I say?
I didn't have high hopes though, because Maybelline mascara and I don't get along that well. 

I have rather short stubby lashes and the Maybelline formulas don't do them justice.
But I thought what the heck, it's cheap, I'll try it.

Cute, right?

All about Influenster

Hey, Everyone!

I've made posts about Influenster before but mainly to review a product and not actually talking about what Influenster is, so that's what I'm going to do today.

Influenster is a free to join community where you can qualify to test out products and give reviews.
You unlock lifestyle badges so they can get a feel for who you are so they can send you boxes that you would enjoy.
In return for your free box of goodies you'll need to do a survey about the products they sent you.
It's so easy and simple.

You also have the ability to complete product badges for the products you received in your box. You don't have to do these, but if you do you can receive even more free products, so why not?

Influenster just revamped their website so you'll have to request an invitation to join. You'll receive an email when a spot opens up for you. 
Once you join you'll need to fill out and unlock your lifestyle badges and check out the expert badges. You can unlock 5 expert badges in the beginning.
Everything you do reflects on your overall score and increases your chance at a free box of goodies.
It is definitely worth it.
I've had several boxes sent to me with full size products to test out.

If you want to learn more about Influenster and want to sign up just go to and request an invitation. 

A few tips:
Don't be discouraged.
 You will get an invitation and you will qualify for a box.
It took me a few months to get a box, but I've been consistently getting boxes ever since.
Log on to the site and do reviews and answer questions to keep active and keep your score up.
It's free.


Julep Mystery Trick-or-Treat box!

Hey, Everyone.

Julep just announced they're having a Halloween themed mystery box.
For $19.99 + free shipping you're guaranteed at least two polishes and mystery gift which could be a bracelet, scarf, or nail decals.
 I've gotten these boxes in the past and have gotten the big box worth $200+. 

I'm pretty sure you don't have to be a Julep Maven to get these boxes, anybody can go onto their site and purchase one, but they are limited quantity. 

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for that scarf. ;0)

Are you going to get a Halloween box? 
Let me know what you got if you do.


Wanna help me out? Use my Julep Link. I appreciate it if you do, but it's cool if ya don't.

Color Club- Put a pin in it-swatch

I love this polish!

I got it in last month's Birchbox and I'm pretty sure this shade is a Birchbox exclusive, but it's so gorgeous I had to share.

October Goop Birchbox

Hey, Everyone.

I wasn't expecting my Birchbox for a few days but it was in the mailbox today! What a surprise.
I got an email a little while ago to opt in or out for a special Goop birchbox. I didn't do either and let fate decide which box I'd receive. 
Well, I ended up getting a Goop box.
And since it did come so early, I actually didn't peek for once. Haha.

So shipping was fast, I got a Goop box, and it was heavy. 
What could go wrong?

The packaging was white with "Goop" written all over it.
