Today is Halloween! My outfit isn’t very festive but this is what I wore to the mall and Panera for lunch. As you can see, my outfit photos for today were taken in the JCPenney dressing room, haha! I haven’t done anything particularly Halloween-y so far. I may answer the door for trick-or-treaters later but I am currently burning a pumpkin cupcake scented candle and wearing a dorky orange t-shirt with a jack-o-lantern face on it!
My jeans are from Macy’s, they’re super comfortable and soft except for a tag that is sewn into the back of the waist and I can’t remove it! It’s so itchy! Anway, my top is from Target but it was given to me by my cousin. I love that it is a sweater material but still flowy and light so I can wear it in California’s ridiculously hot fall weather (although it’s actually cloudy and a moderate temperature today). Lastly, my brown boots are also from Macy’s. I mentioned them in a previous blog post but they are the Idera riding boots by Rampage.
I bought three of these colors at Target a while back because I’m always looking for new eye products. They were $3 a piece and I think that’s a fair price for the size of the product (.12 oz, compare to Urban Decay’s eyeshadow singles that run about $18 for .05 oz.). The packaging is nice and easy to open. From what I’ve tried, the colors are hit or miss but I definitely plan on trying more. Here is my experience with the colors I bought…
Bark: This color has become a total staple for me. If I somehow managed to run out of this product I would buy it again, although I don’t think I will need to considering the generous amount of product. This is a very shimmery brown color and it looks great with so many different eyeshadow colors. Most days I wear a cream eyeshadow on my eyelid with a warm brown/mauve in the crease and I don’t feel complete until I’ve blended some of this color on the outer part of my eyelid.
Pixie: I had high hopes for this color, I’m a huge fan of colors like Urban Decay’s Sin and Virgin so I was hoping to find another shimmery pink lid color now that Urban Decay sold out to L’Oreal. It’s a pretty color but not as pigmented as I thought it would be. I find myself having to dig my brush into the product to get the coverage that I want.
Burnt plum: I’m obsessed with this color. I tend to avoid colored eyeshadows because I find that they can easily look clown-ish. However, this eyeshadow is just neutral enough that I have no problem using it on a regular day. It’s very pigmented and I love blending it on the outer part of my eyelid when I’m wearing cream, brown or gold eye makeup. I think this is a fun yet easy way to add some color to your makeup.
Overall, I think these eyshadows are worth a try. I use two of them on a regular basis and I hope to get more colors in the future.
Today was a pretty casual day. We went out to lunch at Chipotle (delicious) and then went thrift shopping. I went to a thrift store I had never been to before and found two new shirts. I like one of them and kind of regret buying the other, but oh well (it was only $6). I also had class later this night (I started college! I’m only taking one class currently but I start a second one in April). I changed this outfit a little bit for class but didn’t take a photo. Instead, I wore my black Hot Topic jeans and added my Tilly’s black and gray jacket. I feel like this shirt looks so dressy, it makes me feel less slobby than my usual jeans, furry boots and tee shirt. Also, let’s just take a moment to appreciate how great scarves are. Now that this was the most random/poorly thought out post on this blog, I will say goodbye and thanks for reading!

My family from out of town is here so we’ve been doing some fun things around southern California. Today we went to lunch at this awesome restaurant called Native Foods Cafe, and we had dessert at Diddy Riese.
This was my delicious vegan reuben sandwich.
It was a little cold out and I forgot my jacket, but it was still fun. I was also wearing my newest Neff beanie, it’s mint green! We went on the ferris wheel on the pier, I’ve been on it once before but it was still awesome! The view is insane, if you are visiting near Santa Monica I highly recommend it, I think it’s only like $5 per person.
The day I wore this we just did some shopping at a cool mall.I wanted a festive and comfortable outfit. My vest and hair blocked my shirt but it has an adorable sparkly walrus on it! It was actually from the little girl’s section at Target… but hey, an extra large fits and it was only $6! You won’t find that deal in the junior’s/misses section, haha! I wish I had a better picture of my purse and shoes as well, but I’m too lazy. Anyways, the moccasins are silver and sequined and the purse is gloriously covered in black sequins! I think they tie in pretty well with the glitter walrus. To make the outfit feel more winter-y without adding too many layers I wore this puffy gray vest and my favorite gray beanie (not pictured). Random side note: I ate at Which Wich for the first time and it was so good! Anyways, I hope everyone is having a merry Christmas!
I always enjoy when I find a new outfit that actually looks good. Often when I’m trying out new outfit combinations I feel uncomfortable because it’s not what I’m used to or I think it looks odd. I’m pretty happy with the way this one turned out. Today it was still fairly warm but not as hot as it was a few weeks ago. The three quarter length sleeves and light weight of the cardigan made it comfortable. I haven’t worn this shirt very much but I think it will be great for all seasons. It’s a tank top but works well for layering.
Now my new favorite accessory, my beanie!! I have never had a beanie that stays on my head like this one, I’m thinking of doing a review on it sometime. I love it so much and it makes all of my outfits feel perfect to me. The fall colors and boots make it great for the season too!
Today we started out by going downtown, and I saw Tom Hanks and he waved at me!!! After that we just did different things near the Portland area. I changed my outfit a little bit as the day got hotter.
Dress: I really can’t remember, but the brand is “One Clothing”
Crossbody: San Diego Saturday market
Flip flops: Old Navy
Bracelets: 99 cent store
Necklace: Cannon Beach
Sparkly bricks! These were so cute.
I don’t think this is exactly the one but we went near a rock used in a Twilight scene
