Reindeer Food Madness

Reindeer Food Madness

The other night, I was home alone sitting next to the tree, watching I Survived, and decided it needed to get a little more in the spirit around here.

I am all about a simple look. I don't like to do a lot of fussing with my makeup, and when I do I usually look like a clown. I would never deem myself uber talented with makeup, but I am slowly figuring out what works for me and what products I love...

Halloween Sneak Peek!

Halloween is TOMORROW and to celebrate I am giving you a sneak peek at my Halloween costume accessories. Originally I was thinking of being a certain lullaby character, but Sunday I decided to do a a switch up. This is rare. I normally have my costume done well in advance. But when I came to Miami and saw my Space46 skirt from my Bridal Shower, I got immediately inspired...
