Make Up Junkie

I have a confession to make.

I'm a make-up junkie!  Yes even when I don't need make-up, I buy more!
Anyone else have this problem?!

Recently I made a trip to Ulta, all I needed was foundation.  That's all I needed.  Well, you get me into that store, filled with all those beautiful palettes and what can I say, I'm weak!

That's right, I walked in for foundation, and walked out with that plus the new Too Faced eye shadow palette and new contour.  But in m defense I was running low on contour and the eye shadows were just so pretty!

Lately I've become obsessed with Too Faced, and I'm glad I have.  Their colors are gorgeous, and the chocolate products really and truly do smell like chocolate!

The Cocoa Contour smells like chocolate and glides all smoothly.  Two different shades of contour and highlighter.  The last contour I had was a cream, and I prefer this powder.  It doesn't make me as oily and I like that I can build up the color.  Plus it comes with this cute little brush too..bonus!!!!

Now let's talk about this trio!  Initially when I first saw it I thought they were sold individually.  But lucky lucky.. these come together along with a pretty travel case and mini Better Than Sex mascara.  It's a win win in my book.  I've already used several of these colors since I bought it and I'm in love!  Plus I just love the Christmas names.

I'm also starting to developed a love affair with graphic print tees.  I've been stocking a few within my boutique, and I have to restrain from keeping all of them!!

This tee is one of my favorites, its long and I do love me some Bon Jovi!  I love that a graphic tee can easily be worn in multiple ways form casual to dressy.

Happy Halloween

One of my favorite days of the year is here.. Halloween!

I mean who doesn't love an excuse to dress as someone else and eat your weight in candy?!  Not to mention the scary movie marathons!  Halloween is definitely one of my favorite Holidays outside of Christmas and my Birthday 😜

The last several days have been jammed packed (which is why I wasn't able to post last Thursday).  Between the boutique, the kids and being locked away in my kitchen it's been madness here.

I spent a good 24 hours baking up a storm in my kitchen.  I had a friend who was organizing/attending a zombie themed party, who asked me to make some gruesome cupcakes.  Of course I couldn't say no!  I made them some "bloody brains & eyeball" cupcakes.

These "bloody brains" are red velvet with a cream cheese frosting.  Then they were drizzled in a bloody cornstarch mix.  I also made 2 dozen grey goose jello shots using syringes so the guest could either insert them into their cupcakes or take the shot on its own.

Now these "Bloody Eyeball" cupcakes were probably my favorite!  They look all pretty with the rose piping but then the gruesomeness is added with the blood and eyeballs.  They're a vanilla cake with a strawberry puree filling topped with a vanilla buttercream.  Again I used my bloody cornstarch to drizzle over a gumball eye.

The day before I started baking these I had the honor of baking an "I Beat Cancer" cake.  Another friend's mother in law just kicked breast cancers butt and they wanted to celebrate.  I was more than willing to squeeze this into my schedule!

This one is a triple layer chocolate cake with a vanilla buttercream.  I tried something new (for me) and used a star tip to do a pink ombre around the side.  I then topped it with a fondant ribbon sprinkled in pink sugar and cut out the words using gumpaste.  Out of all the cakes I've made, this is in my top 10 favorites.

Of course since its Halloween, I have to share my new favorite black shirt.  I just recently got this in my boutique and I'm tempted to order more in other colors.  It's buttery soft, loose fitting and the criss cross neckline is right on trend.  I may have worn it a few times now!  But it looks great tucked in, on its own or layered up.

I was totally having a mom moment here.  My daughter was throwing a fit off camera so of course my husband had to catch me in action!
