Happy Halloween!

My dear friend and I did something a little unconventional for Halloween this year. We had a superhero themed Sunday brunch at Fanny Chadwick's and then a mini iPhone photo shoot in our costumes! I have not worn a Halloween costume in many many many years so I was surprised by how much fun it was to dress up again. We were originally going to go to Casa Loma to take a few photos with the "castle" in the background... but due to the rain and wind and cold, I conveniently thought it might be neat to take a few photos in the subway instead. And so we did! Here are some crazy photos for your enjoyment.







We got very silly! Odd considering we didn't even drink at brunch. Actually, with this friend, it's not so odd. We are often sillier when we are sober.






Are you dressing up for Halloween? If so, as who or what? Or perhaps your kids and/or pets will be dressed up?

In case you are interested in watching, I also shared some of the above photos in my recent I ♥ Fall TAG video.



Below are the questions I answered in the video:

1. Favorite fall lip product?
2. Favorite fall nail polish?
3. Favorite Starbucks fall drink?
4. Favorite fall candle?

5. Favorite fall scarf or accessory?
6. Haunted house, haunted hay ride, or haunted corn maze?

7. Favorite Halloween movie?
8. Favorite candy to eat on Halloween?
9. What are you dressing up as for Halloween?
10. What is your favourite thing about Fall?

Please feel free to share your faves! Have a happy and safe Halloween!! :)

    my fav stuff:

    concealer/corrector: giorgio armani master corrector in salmon and his concealer in #3.5. i swear, this stuff is like a magic eraser for dark circles!

    skin hydrator and soother: aura cacia 100% certified organic argan oil. this stuff is so good it even erased my fine lines and got rid of my eczema!

    blush: la bella donna tangerine blush. LBD is an all-natural makeup line my sister introduced me to and i LOVE their stuff! gives you flawless skin without all the chemicals

    hydrating serum: pure + simple collagen elastin plus

    polish: illamasqua "DWS" and cheeky monkey "u never go back"

    1. i was thinking about it and almost subscribed last night in fact! i'm a little hesitant because the shipping charge is nearly half the price of the bag... i think i might hold off for a little while...

      are you planning on subscribing?

      Delete
    2. no i'm thinkin on waiting it out a few months and see how other people are doing with the canadian bag. I almost subscribed too but stopped myself because I forgot about the shipping and the tax price. Quite a lot!

    3. i totally agree! i'm going to wait and see (and check out the canadian reviews) before i decide...

  5. You could seriously be a model! You guys did some very professional work with the shots you were able to take. I love the one with you looking so kick ass with the train in moving in the back. And is it your friend sitting but looking like she's relaxing on the wall, all chill in the air? Great shots, so much fun

    1. haha thanks candice, you're too sweet. i kept making fun of myself because my facial expression and pose were nearly the same in every shot. yes, my friend was crazy with that wall pose. i was like, how did you do that? she looks so relaxed too - i love that.

    1. thank you! i used the nume $100 off promo code from my topbox to pick up the 4 play curling wand set. just used the smallest barrel (9mm to 18mm) to do these tight curls. i'm going to post a review and demo of the entire set next month on youtube). :)

    1. OH jayne, you gotta try it!! just curl all your hair away from your face in 0.5 to 1 inch sections, then run your fingers though to separate the curls and you will have a huge pouffy head of hair. it looks pretty wild at first but will fall throughout the day.
