Skulls


Happy Halloween week!

In spirit of Halloween being so soon, I decided to do a post that is not only festive, but trendy as well. I love skulls. I think they're just so cool looking. Gone are the days where skulls were seen as gothic items, now we see them in so many variations that anyone could pull them off. I pulled these items from Etsy and Modcloth, partially because they're my favourite online stores but also because they had the best items!

1. Use Your Noggin bracelet, Modcloth, $15.99 (buy here)
2. Craft Night Brainstorm Sweatshirt, Modcloth, $42.99 (buy here) 
3. A Rose by Any Other Dame Heel, Modcloth, $30.99 (buy here) 
4. Black Knuckle Duster Skull Clutch Bag, Etsy, $39.98 (buy here)
5. About Face Sweater, Modcloth, $44.99 (buy here) 
6. Sugar Skull and Daisies Post Earrings, Etsy, $12.84 (buy here)
7. Floral Skull iPhone 5 Case, Etsy, $7.51 (buy here)
8. Skull-lastic Looks Top, Modcloth, $34.99 (buy here)

In other news, I'm thinking of starting a book club on here! Using Audible, we can all listen to books and talk about them. I'm going to start Allegiant soon. I'm not totally sold on the Divergent series yet, so we'll see how I feel about the book. I love Audible because I'm a student and rarely find time to read a book. Not only that, but sometimes you can find books you need to read for school on Audible, which makes life so much easier. If you ClCK THIS LINK, you will get a 30 day free trial and one free credit you can redeem for a book. Download Allegiant and we can listen together!

What do you think of the skulls trend? Are you dressing up for Halloween? Also, what do you think of the Divergent series? Let me know in the comment section!

Until next time,

Five Things I'm Loving


1. American Horror Story:
OH MY GOD THIS SHOW. I am a big giant baby when it comes to anything scary. I had heard the rave reviews for years about this show, and I was always so curious. At some point last year, I purchased the first season. However, it sat on my shelf collecting dust because I was too scared to watch it. Finally last week, I sucked up my fears and started watching it. I fell in love. I probably watched the whole season in a few days. It wasn't as scary as it was shocking and creepy. Also, Jessica Lange deserves every award ever. Watch. This. Show.  I'm terrified for Asylum though.

2. Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Branded: 
These are heavenly. I own a few colours, but this colour is my favourite. It's a very nice nude colour with some shimmer. It's perfect for a base under shadow or just on it's own on my lazy days. You can get these at any drugstore, and they are sooooo much better than anything you can buy high end.  Check them out if you have a chance!

3. Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Cleanser: 
My skin has been absolutely awful lately. I went to the doctors for a check up and he looked at my face and said "do you want me to prescribe you something for that?". LIKE REALLY?! So I decided to take a risk and try a new face wash. I'm a drugstore face cleanser kind of girl and spending anything over 10 dollars seemed terrifying. However, I'm so happy with this face wash! It smells incredible for starters. It doesn't smell medicated or strong but has more of a fresh cucumber scent to it. It has been clearing up my skin so well. I forgot to bring it home with me for Thanksgiving and I really noticed the difference in my face. I think this face wash is amazing for my skin! It's purifying and not too drying and doesn't leave your skin tight. Skincare is so different for everyone though, so see what works for you! You can buy the cleanser here!

4. Conair Curl Secret Curling Iron: 
THIS THING LOOKS TERRIFYING. Why would anyone want a machine to suck their hair into it? No one. But wait, this thing is actually amazing and not a terror machine! There are instructions on how to avoid terrifying situations involving burning ones hair off. For it to work, you have to make sure that the hair is tangle free. I got the hang of it really quickly, my mom didn't. I say try it, I really like the curls it gives and find it really quick and easy. I hate when you use wand curlers and your arm gets tired from wrapping hair, and this really stops that. It's cool to see for sure. I made a quickie video on my instagram demonstrating how to use it: http://instagram.com/p/fa9P2YDCxb/. It may be a little tricky at first, but once you get the hang of it, this curling iron is godly.

4. Lorde- Pure Heroine:
How is this girl sixteen?! Super talented and unique, Lorde's cd has been a favourite of mine. I would compare her to a less sexualized Lana Del Rey, it doesn't have the deepest lyrics but you enjoy the experience. I will say a lot of the songs have a similar sound, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.Obviously there's Royals, but there are so many other great songs! To narrow it down (because I could probably list off the whole album since they're so great!), I'm going to say my favourite three off the album. In no particular order:


Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoyed this kind of post/ brief entry into my life. What have you been loving lately?
