Happy Halloween Skull Succulent

Happy Skull Halloween!Skull Succulent

Do you want to decorate for Halloween, but you don’t want to use the same old tired Halloween decorations?

The other day I was passing by this display of very cool looking skulls at World Market.  There was several different sizes.  Most of the skulls had a pink candle in the head that looked like a pink brain (it was gross, so gross I threw out the candle).  I really liked the look of the skull, but with no candle it look strange.  I bought it anyways.  I knew something would pop into my head and I would figure out what I could fill it with.

A few days later I happend to be at a nursery (for plants) when I was drawn to the succulents.  That was it, I’d fill the hole in the skull with succulents!  I bought several different ones because I wasn’t sure exactly how many I would need.  I especially love the ones that looked like little spider webs, perfect for the eyes of my Halloween skull.Skull Succulent

I think it turned out great!  I like the dirt all over it.  What do you think of the skull succulent?

Until Next Time…

10 Fun Things To Do During Fall

Favorite Fall Home Decor

Yay!  It’s finally Fall!

Favorite Fall Home Decor

While some people can’t wait for summer, I long for it to be fall all year-long!  The leaves are finally falling, there is a crisp chill in the air (not so much in Southern California, but hopefully soon), and I’m decorating my home for this glorious season!  I love the ease of fall decorating; soft cozy blankets, faux pumpkins, and cute pillows make it simple to bring autumn into your home.  Lately, I’ve been scouring the internet for some new decor and I’m so excited to show you what I have found. If you fall in love with any of these items like I did, you can buy them right from the affiliate links (FYI, I will receive a small commission). (more…)

New Pretty Lashes & Skin Care Favorites

You all know I can’t resist trying new beauty products.

Today we’re talking about false lashes and facial spray!

How to apply false lashes in a 5 easy steps.

  1. Apply your full makeup. Curl your natural lashes and add a thin layer of mascara, this will help blend your false lashes and your natural lashes together.
  2. Always remove your false lashes gently from their box to not disturb their shape. Using tweezers measure your false lashes with the length of your eyes. If they are too long cut the excess lashes with small scissors.  Cut the lashes from the inner corner and only cut through the vein.  Make sure you don’t place the false eyelashes too close to the inner corner of your eyes as this will irritate them.
  3. Add a very thin layer of eyelash glue to the tip of your eyelash vein, making sure you have extra coverage on the ends.
  4. Wait about 18 seconds until the glue is very tacky.  When the glue is tacky it will stick to your lash line easier and stay put.
  5. For the application, place your chin up while you are looking down in the mirror.  Apply the false eyelash on the skin as close to your eyelash line as possible.  Squeeze your natural eyelashes and your false eyelashes together, this will mix them and create a more cohesive look.  Repeat on your other eye.

**DO NOT add a layer of mascara at this point.

For the indiviual lashes:

  1. Just like with the above directions, add a light coat of mascara on your eyelashes.
  2. Set a pearl size amout of the glue on a clean piece of paper.  Let the glue sit for 18 seconds until it is very tacky.
  3. Holding the indiviual eyelashes with a tweezer dip the lashes one at a time in the glue.  Place the eyelash at the base of the eyelash line following the direction of your natural eyelashes.  Place the indiviual eyelashes close to eachother leaving a tiny space in between.

Have you ever used a facial spray?

If you haven’t you should!  I love using these facial sprays for so many reasons.  It’s refreshing especially in the hot summer months (I keep mine in the fridge so it’s extra cool). They smell wonderful and they are packed with hydrating properties to keep your skin from becoming dry.  Once you have applied your makeup a spritz to your face and you’ve set your makeup for the day.  I’ve tried several brands, but my favorite to use right now are these Mario Badescu.
