  • I’m Currently Obsessed With….Halloween

    halloween-pumpkinSo, today is officially the first day of October. There are only two reasons October holds a place in my heart. 1) My mother’s birthday is in late October – yay!!!! 2) Halloween!

    Growing up, we celebrated Halloween to the fullest around my house. My mom and dad would buy a gigantic pumpkin and after scooping out the insides and popping the pumpkin seeds into the oven, my brother and I would carve out the face and place a candle on the inside right before placing our spooky pumpkin into the window.

    We dressed up as our favorite cartoon characters, singers, baseball players and much more. We trick or treated up and down the neighborhood and even watched all of the super cool Halloween themed cartoons that would pop up a few days before Halloween! I love this time of the year and always feel like a kid again when I see the candy corn and the jack’o lanterns hanging in store windows.

  • Haute Halloween – Manic Panic Style


    One of the reasons I love Halloween so much is the makeup. No other time in my life can I wear a foundation three shades lighter than my natural complexion or flaunt the perfect black lip. Halloween is the one time of the year where all beauty rules are cast aside and in its place lies imagination, creativity and fun!

    Just in time for Halloween, Manic Panic ( the cult classic cosmetics and hair color company from the 80’s ) is revamping their latest cosmetics collection with a dark but delicious twist. The Creature of the Night Collection is all about celebrating the various aspects of  the beauty of Halloween and carrying it over into our daily beauty routines.
