October Favorites/Recap/ plus Jersey Shore Snooki inspired look.

I love October guys! Texas State fair, Halloween, cute pink stuff for Breast Cancer Awareness month & much much more. I also like this time around the year because after Halloween, there's Thanksgiving & we just get closer to the holidays!

Big Tex, I think he's about 52 ft tall.

This year I went to the State Fair 5 times! I can't believe I did, but I love the food too much haha

Foods I tried/had at the fair this year LOL:

-Fried ice cream *my fav, I get this every year*
-Roasted Buttered Corn w cajun seasoning
-Turkey Leg
-Cheese tator fries
-Texas shaped nachos w. fajitas
-Chicken Fried Bacon *Just bacon  fried in chicken batter*
-Crawfish sausage on a stick
-Funnel cake
-Fried Pizza
-Fried lemonade
-Fried oreos
-Frozen sweet tea
-Bbq brisket sandwich
-- that's all I remember. I shared all of them w friends or w my bf, I did not eat all of that by myself haha.

TX VS OU game outfit =). Hook emm!

October Favorites

1. Boots expert sensitive light moisturizing lotion- I have no problem with this at all. The Clean & Clear Oil Free Dual Action broke me out.  This is very light and does not make my face feel greasy or sticky at all. I just don't like that it comes in a twist-off cap & not a pump. It's kind of a hassle. I think the bottle is going to last me for quite awhile though. So far, I will be sticking to this and will buy again.
2. Too Faced Primed & Poreless Face Primer- Ahh I love this, soo smooth and I like how it doesn't break me out or leave my face oily. Worth my $30. 

3. Rimmel London's Stay Matte powder in Sandstorm- This reminds me of a cheap version of MAC Select Sheer pressed powder. Very sheer and light. The color is more for like NC35-ish skintones but since it's so sheer it doesn't really make my face look white. I just brush one coat all over my face. I don't like the packaging either. It feels like it's going to break or something. Gotta be careful with it.

4. MAC blush in Angel LE- I got this at a CCO last yr. I'm sad that I fell in love with it when it was too late to go back and get a backup. Color is like a soft girly pink. I say it's like a sister to Well Dressed blush. I like to use this on an everyday look if I don't wanna go for a neutral peachy color like Melba or something like Blushbaby. I was looking for a pink that's wearable during the daytime or just a very soft pink to give my cheeks a lil glow. Angel, like its name..makes you look like an angel afterwards =). I can't do a swatch, camera won't pick up!

5.Maybelline's Falsies mascara- A lot of people don't like this, but this stuff works for me.It kind does makes me look like Im wearing falsies. I can imagine someone with full lashes using this. They wouldn't need to apply false lashes! I have really straight short lashes that's hard to curl too. I can even use this for my bottom lashes which is a big plus. This is wayy better than CG lashblast. I wanna try the Colossal one though. This is my HG mascara for now.

6. Maybelline's Color Sensational Lipstick in Pink Please- My babyyy. I've been neglecting all of my MAC lippies b/c of this one. Perfect pink for me. I did like Born with it, til I notice all the shimmer it has in it. For a night out look, I'd go for Make Me Pink.

7. Neosporins Lip Heath Lip Therapy- After 3 days, I really did see results. You gotta keep using it at least ONCE a day. Preferably before bed or before you apply makeup, so by the time it time for you to put on your lippie..your lips will be smooth and ready =). I'm very happy that I don't have to worry about crusty chapped lips anymore. Ive been looking for something that works just like how Ive been looking for good skincare stuff for my face. I think everyone should try this! Another great stocking stuffer for my girlfriends. I hope they don't read my blog haha mentioned so many stuff that I'm going to stuff in their stockings.

8. Sonia Kashuk Circle of Hope Kabuki brush- The pink bristles caught my eyes. I was going to get the brush set but I already have the bamboo set that's similar to it. I like to use this for my setting powder or on the go brush. I wish there was a retracable one of this. Silver & pink too =).

9. Pink & Black Love & Beauty brush from Forever 21- I got this b/c I needed my own hair brush. Tired of looking for one around the house everyday. I love that it's black & pink. Those are my fav colors. I have this as a favorite b/c Ive been using it everyday of course & I lovee it. I wanna go get the other one now. $3.50 ish I think?

Did you guys go to your State's fair this year? What did you do & eat? 


What are you guys dressing up as this year? 

I hope everyone has a good & safe Halloween weekend! Looking forward to seeing everyones costumes/looks & October favorites. Loves ya =)/
