Target Haul

 I am a target affiliate, if you click ads, and make purchases accordingly I will be compensated.

My favorite month of the year is nearly upon us so you know that means stores are stocking up with what I affectionately call "Halloweenies" (Halloween products of any kind). My favorite being Target! Ever year I browse their selection so slowly, and end up leaving with much more than I meant to but its always worth it. Halloween is my favorite holiday, I can't help but go all out. Jared and I went a browsed a few days ago and here are a few things I left with!
This cutie modeling with all my goodies.

Lovely blanket(I want the ghost one too but I had to narrow it down to one).
I lost my H&M scarf and this looks a lot like it so I'm stoked.

Cute little decorating lights!

Cute little cards to give to coworkers :)

Some dingus trying to eat my twine. I'm going to string that up and use the clips to hang up instax photos!

Yawning, haha!

My Makeup Bag

Excuse my bleeding lips, I've been picking mercilessly.

So the idea came to me this morning to do a post about what my every day makeup routine is! It's super simple bc I'm not really skilled, and I'm also pretty lazy/low maintenance in that department.

BOOP! That's it, lol. On the most typical day, this is all I put on. Okay so we've got the adorable bag I got for $.09 at the thrift store, standard lash blast mascara you can get literally anywhere, a basic sephora slanted eyebrow brush, Kat Von D eyeliner, and Anastasia dark brown brow powder! Voila. When I used to work at Fusian, I met a girl named Erika who introduced me to the world of amazing eyebrows. I had always just plucked mine to death and called it a day. I met her and marveled at how she shaped and filled. She explained how she filled them in and so I set off to find out how I could sculpt mine into masterpieces. What I found was Anastasia and I've never looked back. Though I will say my Mom got me some urban decay brow stuff for my birthday that I use from time to time that is super rad as well. The Anastasia is over a year old and I still have a ton left... I know you're supposed to throw makeup out after 3 months or something but... I think it's safer than old mascara or something that's going to give you a stye. I dunno, makeup ain't always cheap, I hold onto it as long as I can haha. Then last year Madi introduced me to the heaven that is Kat Von D's eyeliner. I was using some Mabelline drug store pot and brush crap that went on liquid and dried like glue, and I'd rub it off and pull it off at the end of the day and end up ripping out eyelashes, and it was painful and sloppy and ugh why did I bother? Well Madi showed me the light when we were at Riotfest, and everything was beautiful and nothing hurt. She let me borrow it pretty much every morning as I got ready and I was like "I have to get my own, this is the best". It's so much easier to put on and I have so much more control, it's great! It stays on, doesn't smudge, dries quick. So I slap these things on in the morning if I'm feeling like it, and I'm off! Now you know my little beauty secrets :)

I've got on the Nicki Minaj Mac lipstick here.

And some sort of drug store plum lipstick here.

What I Wore - Doggone Cute

Dress - Modcloth
Jacket - Thrifted
Shoes - American Eagle from Payless a loong time ago.

I've been meaning to take these photos since I got this dress in like... May. Time always gets away from me and I put things off until it's almost too late. Everyone is gearing up in layers for fall, but I'm sliding this outfit in while it's still sweaty hot in Cincinnati.
Okay you guys, its a dress covered in dogs... you know I had to have it!! I am obsessed with dogs. I squeal pretty much any time I see one. While I was shooting pictures, a lady walked by with two frenchies, and we just stared at each other's dogs wistfully haha. They were so cute!
Anyway this dress is awesome and flattering, I love the way the skirt twirls. The middle is a little scrunchy and loose, but it's not a huge flaw. It has a built in bra which is great, and the halter strap is removable if need be, which sometimes it is for me because using my neck to hold up a dress kinda hurts after a while.
Also Steve is a big cute baby. And it's really hard to get two dogs to pose with you in 80 degree weather. The End!
