More Halloween Nail Art Ideas

I love holiday themed nail art, and I especially love Halloween. Unfortunately, this October has been a bit too busy for me to come up with many ideas. Honestly, I can't even believe it's already the end of October! So here are some Halloween manicures that I did last year, in case you are in need of some fun nail art ideas for the 31st.


Halloween Zig-Zag Nail Art

Happy Almost Halloween! This October has been a complete whirlwind equating to not much time for nail art. So I decided to something fun and simple for Halloween. Because you can't skip a holiday themed mani entirely!

I moved to NYC a few years ago and absolutely love it. However, I do get a bit homesick for Florida every now and again. We didn't make it down for summer, so we had a random vacation in the middle of October instead. However, the weather felt summer enough. Plus, we were able to head down to Universal Studios for Halloween Horror Nights- a high school & college tradition that I have missed out on the past couple of years. Instead of a typical Seven of the week, here are seven pictures from my Florida trip.  P.S. Posts on a regular basis will be back. I promise.

[Universal is always fun.]

[Halloween Horror Nights! The Cabin in the Woods' house was our favourite.]

[Seven mile kayaking adventure.]

It was so great to see family and friends-having lunch and playing board games. It's always bittersweet to head back home. But it won't be too long until we are back for Christmas!

Hope you had an amazing week!

In-Flight Essentials

Right now, I am on an airplane flying to my hometown in Florida for a little vacation. I am so excited to see family and friends. Plus, we are going to Orlando for Halloween Horror Nights which will be super fun. I love airports and airplanes, packing and traveling, so I thought I would share some of my essentials to have a comfortable flight.

Fall Nails | Aubergine & Copper Gradient

I feel like I haven't done any nail art in some time! To ease myself back into it, I went to my go-to technique, while adding an Autumn twist. I have been loving pairing copper and purple (see my eye make-up look here) and decided to try the colour combo in a manicure.

Full-blown Autumn & loving it! Warning: Pumpkins. Everywhere.

[Running errands is much better in the brisk weather.]

[Loving copper nails.]

[Getting used to the new job.]

[My go-to eye look this week: Nutty on the lid, Definer in the crease.]

[This stuff is amazing!]

[Attempting to keep the Halloween candy dish full...]

Hope you have an amazing week!

MIYU A Prettea Little Quartet

I am so excited for today's post! As you know I am a huge fan of Birchbox.  As part of their Birchbox Blogger program, they had a promotion on Twitter with MIYU Beauty. I was lucky enough to be randomly chosen to receive a MIYU A Prettea Little Quartet to review on my blog, as well as one to give away to one of my readers! So keep reading to hear my thoughts on this introductory set and to enter to win one for yourself!

Copper & Purple Eye Look

I love metallics and jewel tones every time of the year. This eye make-up look is a brighter take on copper & amethyst, contrasting the usual deep, dark smokey looks of autumn. Combining these two colours creates a gorgeous effect that enhances every eye colour. The overall look is surprisingly acceptable for everyday.

Sample Society | October 2013

This is my first Sample Society box ever! I recently decided to cancel my Ipsy subscription and replace it with Beauty Bar's Sample Society. I just felt like trying something new, with more of a high-end skincare focus. What also pushed me to switch was the Butter London polish spoiler. Though this box is slightly more expensive at $15, I thought this month it would be less of a gamble with a guaranteed Butter London polish.


Birchbox | October 2013

With the new month comes a new round of beauty boxes. I just received my October Birchbox and can't wait to show you what's inside. The theme is Beauty Buzz, so products, ingredients, trends that are being talked a lot about in the beauty industry. I have been sucked in to quite a lot of the currently hyped up products, so I love this theme already.

Happy October! I am just so excited for this upcoming month. For September, I had a few non-beauty favourites that I wanted to share.
