Things I'm Digging This Week

Happy October everyone! This is my favorite month and we have been knee deep in Halloween decorations, pumpkin patches, and scary movies/shows. I decided to take a break and show you some of the things I've been digging this week: fall edition! Everything I'm going to share with you this week is either related to Halloween or Autumn somehow.

A Touch of Evil

 A few months ago my bestie and I were walking around our local game store when we saw some of the expansions for A Touch of Evil. Unfortunately the store didn't (and never seems to) have the original game in stock, so my husband ordered it from Amazon for me as an anniversary present. I know, I'm such a lucky nerd girl. I love Last Night on Earth, which is also made by Flying Frog Productions, so I had really high hopes for this game, and so far I haven't been disappointed. It's really fun, especially this close to Halloween. Some time in the near future I'll post a game review with more pictures and information.

Ipsy October Glam Bag

I am in LOVE with this bag. It is absolutely adorable, wonderful for the spooky mood I'm in all October, and it is the perfect size to be my makeup bag that lives in my purse. Honestly, I think this month I was more excited about getting the glam bag than I was about the products inside it. 

Bare Minerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm

A while back I posted about how much I loved this balm in "Peach Passion". It is seriously my go-to shade for spring and summer. Now that autumn is upon us, I wanted to find a deeper shade that didn't wash me out. I decided to try the "Rose Passion" shade the last time I was at Ulta and I'm so glad I did. Now I have a new favorite lip-balm for autumn and winter. I like it because it glides on like a lip butter and has a sheer color, so it is perfect for day time and can easily be added to for a more bold night lip color.

The Exorcist on FOX

THIS SHOW! If you're looking for a great and creepy show to watch this October in preparation for Halloween this is the show for you. I've seen the original movie (and the sequels/prequel) and I've also read the book, so I was concerned with how Fox would sustain the action and scary atmosphere. I quickly learned after episodes two and three that there will be no problem whatsoever with an extended creep-factor. I highly recommend it. Even my husband thought it was creepy, and that is really saying something because he usually doesn't like scary movies/shows and almost never gets creeped out by one.

Mary Kay Makeover

     Who doesn't love a new makeup look? This lucky girl has the hookup! I have a few friends who are independent sales consultants for various makeup brands, and today I decided to try one of the new "Makeup Artist Looks" from Mary Kay. A good friend of mine, Stephanie, became a Mary Kay consultant a few months ago and as I perused her website I found a few looks I thought I'd like to try. I fell in love with their "Red Alert" look, and decided that this red lipped classic would pair wonderfully well with a sweater and boots ensemble and knew it had to be mine.
     Luckily enough for me, I already had a few of the MK products needed to complete the look from a party a while back and only had to buy the makeup I was missing from Stephanie. This look includes the following Mary Kay products: MK Mineral Eye color in "Spun Silk" and "Espresso", MK Eyeliner in "Black", MK Mineral Cheek Color in "Strawberry Cream", MK Lip Liner in "Red", and MK Lipstick in "Red".
     The only thing that the look on the Mary Kay site said to do that I chose not to do was winged eyeliner. I can't make eyeliner wings to save my life, so I didn't even try this time. So, without further ado here is my completed look:

I thought it ended up looking pretty good. Since I'm so pale (like Casper the friendly ghost pale) a red lip really REALLY stands out on me. If you liked this look or wanted to see some of the other makeup artist inspired looks or play with their virtual makeover app check out Stephanie's Mary Kay website. Have fun!
