With my obsession with nail art I had to go full out Halloween, and do "scary" nails. These were just for fun and not the best they could look, but I think they're so fun because they are recognizable Halloween characters.
I thought just having an accent nail of the face would not be enough, so I wanted to do the body/neck which I haven't seen when I've searched Halloween nail art. For both having a black striper is the best option, if not just use an old paint brush and tooth pick for dotting. For Dracula do basic tuxedo nail, just put polish along the top, to resemble a cape and free hand the rest and hope for the best!
I really want to know if any of you have been into halloween nail art, and what you've done, show me on instagram or twitter: AlsLoves!

This is my zebra dress, I'm kind of obsessed with it and haven't worn it since the third week of September. But, since I took the pictures I figured I might as well at least make the blog post. As you can see it has a really high neck line, and an exposed zipper on the back, but the best part is definitely the print. It is from H&M and I have seen it in some stores still as well as the other dresses in the solid colours with this shape and zipper.
When I first saw it it was $19.99 and the rest of the colours including the same print but pink were $10, so being the bargain hunter I am, I left it. A week later, after the back to school "sales" it was marked down to $10 just like the rest. The moral of this ramble is sometimes when shopping, good things come to those who wait!
Also, the lipstick I'm wearing is Boots N7 Moisture Drench Lipstick in Sienna and my hair is third day, Dove dry shampoo hair and I used a 2" curling iron.
Anyways, do you think I could wear this for fall, with a cardigan and black tights and boots? I'm contemplating it because I like it so much. Also, if any of you just got a really good bargain I'd love to hear about it!

It was Thanksgiving here in Canada last week, so I figured I would share with you guys how I stayed festive. The things that makes the holidays is decorating and having the holiday spirit. So I was searching on pinterest and it brought me to HeyKayli's Thanksgiving Treats video and I just had to make them. Its rice krispie squares dyed orange and I used chocolate chips as the stem and icing for the leaves and the pilgrim hats are Reese's peanut butter cups on top of cookies stuck together with orange icing and you just need to create a little buckle. These are just a fun addition to the typical pumpkin pie :)
And it just wouldn't be me if I didn't have festive nails, so through more online searching, I created my own variations, I don't like all candy corn nails and I wanted to incorporate pumpkins, so pumpkin tips is easy and fun. For the pumpkin use your brush to create the edges of the top of a pumpkin then with a thin paint brush or striper, outline the top you just made, then create the rounded lines in the middle, then with a brush or dotting tool create the green stem. And for candy corn nails, paint your nails orange, wait for them to dry, cut a piece of tape to fit the space you want and then place it in the middle of your nail, and on each side of the tape fill in the white and yellow, simple!
Sorry my nails are so grubby but this was as I was heading out the door to leave, as I had three turkey dinners last weekend, and didn't have time to capture my nails well or clean them up.
Anywho, I have edited all the pictures I have taken in the last two months so get ready for an influx of posts because they're pretty much done, I just get lazy and never publish. But I have a week off for Reading Week sonn which will be nice!
