My Ultimate Halloween Guide ♥ NOTD & Playlist

Ultimate Halloween Guide
Happy Halloween! If you have no plans today or if you tired from the events over weekend. I crafted the ultimate Halloween guide that you can read and listen to. I also included a nail of the day in this post because why not? I haven't posted a notd in forever and honestly I've missed them, maybe they will become more frequent for now on.

Here are close ups of my Halloween nail art. I was inspired by a picture that I saw online. I loved all the colors in the design so I attempted to recreate it on my nails. I know it's kind of sloppy but it was kind of a last minute decision. I used an old black nail art pen to draw some of the designs but for some reason when they dried some of the polish cracked causing my designs to look messy. Overall, I'm pleased with the outcome. The pumpkin is my favorite!

Ultimate Halloween Guide
I'm going to try to wear my pink unicorn kigurumi tonight. But it's been surprisingly toasty lately hopefully it will cool down enough to wear it. My younger sister and I plan on watching Halloween specials and movies all night as we eat junk food (I'm making veggie mummy dogs!).

Ultimate Halloween Guide
For Halloween I was going to dress Lucy up as Stitch but the costume fits kind of too snug on her. Thankfully, my sister bought her a back up costume which fits her, she's now going to be a panda. I also bought some treats to hand out to the pups that will be accompanying their kids tonight while trick-or-treating. Hopefully there will be some dogs out so I can give them these treats.

Down below I posted my official 2016 Halloween playlist. It includes all of my favorite "Halloween" kpop and jpop songs (by jpop I mean Kyary). These songs remind of Halloween because of the title of the song or the music video. I also made a Youtube playlist so you guys can watch all the videos. Some songs are missing from the Spotify playlist because I couldn't find them (apparently JYP hates Spotify). Anyways, enjoy the songs and let me know which is your favorite song and/or video.



What are you doing on Halloween?

Where I've Been + Mini Haul ♥ The Weekend Guide #30

The Weekend Guide
Happy Friday! Sorry I've been MIA this week. I have no excuses really I just haven't been feeling inspired. This happens every couple of months so instead of forcing out a post I took a short break. But you know what's funny? Whenever I take breaks I get more comments, lol.

Anyways, today I thought I would share a mini haul of some items that I recently received in the mail. I finally ran out of my Ahava cleanser so I ordered the COSRX Low pH Morning Gel Cleanser. This was in the Kbeauty wishlist that I posted not too long ago. I've only been using it a few days but so far so good. Another skincare product that I picked up was the L'Oreal Pure Clay Detox and Brighten Mask. After reading this post I went out and tracked down this mask because it sounded delightful. Let me know if you guys want to see a review on this mask.

With Halloween just a couple days away I wanted something Halloween related that I could wear over the weekend since I'm not doing anything festive. So I picked up this light pink bat pullover from HM. Lastly, I have this adorable Marie pom pom key chain that I got from TsumTsumMarie. She's currently selling some stuff she bought whilst in Tokyo Disney so if you are interested check out her instagram page.


What Halloween festivities are you going to this weekend?

Second Colourpop Order ♥ Fall Edit Haul

Colourpop Haul
After my first order with Colourpop I knew that I would order from them again because I really loved the quality products. So when Colourpop was having a free shipping offer on all orders a couple days ago I decided to place an order and get a few of their fall items that caught my eye's.

Colourpop Haul
I got three items this time. An eye shadow, a ultra matte lip and one of their lip sets that contains three lip products. I love how Colourpop includes these cute corny note cards with each package (I also cheesy jokes!)

Colourpop Haul

Colourpop Haul
The Up and Away set contains Mama, Calypso and Love Bug. Calypso is a Ultra Satin Lip and the other two are a Ultra Matte Lips. I only bought this kit because it was a steal ($15 for 3 instead of $18). I only wanted Calypso but after swatching the other two on my lips I decided to also keep Love Bug. I gave Mama to my sister because I'm not a fan of bright reds. I noticed that the application on both Mama and Love Bug wasn't as easy to apply as the other Ultra Matte Lips that I own.

Colourpop Haul
The other lippie I decided to get was Bianca. This color has been on my wishlist since I placed my last order. It's soft mauve pink. It's pretty similar to Calypso but it's a matte and has a pink undertone.

Colourpop Haul
I decided to try an eye shadow from Colourpop this time. I wanted a color that I could use in my inner corners so I went with Paisley. This was also part of one of Colourpop's fall collections. It's described as "Sheer golden ivory laced with tons of multi-coloured sparkle in a Glitter Sheer finish". I also kind of disappointed with this color because for some reason I was expecting an opaque highlighter colored with reflex of glitter but instead I got a sheer shadow with tons of sparkle. It's my fault though for not reading the description properly. It's still a gorgeous eye shadow but it's just not what I was hoping for.

Have you ordered anything from Colourpop recently?

Pumpkin Crazy ♥ The Weekend Guide #29

The Weekend Guide
Happy Friday! This week I made pumpkin pancakes, baked pumpkin scones and attempted to make a homemade pumpkin spice latte (I failed btw) and this weekend I'm planning to carve a jack-o-lantern! I even have pumpkin flavored cereal and pumpkin pie Larabars waiting for me to devour! I've also been burning the pumpkin cupcake candle from Bath and Body Works every night since the beginning of October, it's my favorite scent at the moment. So I guess you can say I'm a little pumpkin crazy. The thing is I actually really love the taste of pumpkin. It's very comforting and makes me feel cozy inside. I also think that Halloween encourages the pumpkin love because of the jack-o-lanterns and pumpkin picking. True pumpkin is overall an autumn thing but by mid November I guarantee that my pumpkin craze will have died down (expect for pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving, of course!).

A Day In Numbers ♥ 10-19-16

A Day In Numbers
I've seen at least 2 day in numbers posts this month so I took it as a sign to make one of my own. What I love about these posts is that they're short and to the point. You can tell so much by someone's day based on these posts. Since today I had work I decided to jot down my day in numbers yesterday instead because my work day in numbers probably wouldn't be as fun as a rest day in numbers.

9 am is when I got out of bed
3 text messages I woke up to
8 oz of water I drank in the morning
5 pumpkin pancakes I made for breakfast (I only ate 3)
7 times Lucy barked because she locked herself in our spare room
2 snacks I had before lunch
3 pm is what time it was when I woke up from a nap
10 nails I painted using the Sally Hansen Diamond Strength
16 oz of coffee I drank
15 dollars I spend on a pastel pink bat sweatshirt from HM
12 Pumpkin scones I baked last night
5 Halloween Tsum Tsums which are displayed on my Tsum Tsum shelf
6 episodes of Gilmore Girls I watched
8 glitter spiders that are hung around my room
31 reps I did of the 5 daily TIU moves
12 Twice teasers I've watched (Can't wait for their new song!)
8 Products I use in my daily night skincare routine
11 more day until Halloween!

Describe your day in numbers!

Kbeauty Skincare Haul ♥ Amazon Prime Haul

Kbeauty Skincare Haul
Ever since signing up for Amazon Prime I've been buying Korean beauty products more frequently because I can get them within 2 days! This is amazing for me because I use to have to wait 2 weeks to a month to get any Kbeauty products delivered. I've been mainly buying Korean skincare because I'm currently trying to build the perfect skincare routine. Today I'm showing you my latest skincare purchases along with a mini review on each product because I've been using most of these products for a couple weeks now.

Kbeauty Skincare Haul
Sonimart Sensitive Skin Brush Heads
I bought these Sonimart brush heads because they're compatible with the Claisonic but less expensive then the Clarisonic brush heads. One pack comes with 2 brush heads for around $12, which is a steal! However, after trying the brush I don't think it's worth it because the bristles are sooooo rough! I have never tried a facial brush that was rough and scratchy like this one! I would not recommend this type of brush head from this brand but I am still willing to find a cheaper brush head alternative. If you guys have any recommendations let me know.

Kbeauty Skincare Haul
Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid
Whenever I visit a Korean beauty website there are so many Cosrx products on their bestsellers section. I always find the BHA Blackhead Power Liquid on each list so I decided to buy it to see what all the hype was about. This is suppose to reduce the amount of blackheads, sebum and hydrate the skin surface. I have been using this every other day for a couple of weeks and I still don't know if I like this product or not. I haven't notice any significant results yet but it also hasn't broken me out so I will continue to use this product and report back if I notice any changes.

Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream
If you remember my previous Kbeauty wishlist then you may remember that I had two sunscreens on that list that I was thinking of buying. However, as you can see I didn't buy either and instead bought the Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream. This is the newest product that I've added to my routine. I just received in the mail over the weekend. I've only used this twice so I haven't formed an opinion on this product yet.

Kbeauty Skincare Haul
Cosrx Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask
Another Cosrx product that I always see on the bestsellers is the Cosrx Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask. This is a sleeping pack that you apply as the last step of your skincare routine, sleep on and then wash off in the morning. So far I'm really loving this stuff! When I wash this mask off in the morning my skin feels soft and nourished. Out of all the Cosrx products I mentioned this is my favorite!

Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum
Last but not least is the Vitamin C20 Serum. This is another bestseller product that I decided to experiment with. This is a 100%  vitamin c serum that is suppose remove blackheads, revitalize, exfoliate, control pores and fix skin tone. Like the BHA liquid I'm not sure how I feel about this product. I guess I have to keep using this to see if I like it or not.

The 2016 Autumn Tag

The Autumn Tag
I found this tag a whilst reading Arora's wonderful blog and thought it would be fun to participate in the autumn/winter tag. I don't remember the last time I posted a tag (probably last year?). If you enjoy tags then I encourage you to join in this tag, it's just 8 questions! If you do decided to do it post a link to your blog post in the comment section so I can view it!

1. What signifies the start of Autumn for you?
Waking up to a chilly morning.

2. What is your favorite fall scent?
Anything pumpkin related. My current favorite candle is Pumpkin Cupcake from Bath and Body Works.

3. What is your favorite Autumn color?
Pastel orange, latte browns and taupe.

4. What is your favorite drink?
Iced pumpkin spice lattes with soy milk from Starbucks! I also start drinking a lot of tea during this season.

5. What TV show, new or old, are you looking forward to this fall?
Scream Queens! It premiered around this time last year and the second season just started so I associate Scream Queens with autumn.

6. What is your favorite fall fashion trend?
I'm really enjoying seeing all the lace up shirts, sweaters and shoes. And Tassels! I freaking love tassels!

7. What is your favorite frugal Autumn activity?
Crochet, knitting, DIY and baking. Basically anything that I can craft by hand.

8. What is your favorite makeup look?
I honestly don't change too much just the lip color. I switch to a darker pink but sometimes I will wear a nude lip as well.

Tag! You're it!

Preparing For Halloween ♥ The Weekend Guide #28

The Weekend Guide #28
This week has been crazy for me! I've been trying to take pictures and getting them ready for my Etsy shop update but I kept on having problems so I had to keep pushing the date. I was also waiting for some packaging supplies to arrive but they took forever to arrive (They finally arrived today. Thank goodness!). Anyways, I will be finishing editing pictures this weekend and posting all my new items in my Etsy shop this weekend finally!

Another thing I decided to do this weekend was decorate my room for Halloween. I bought some glittered spiders from Target and I plan on turning them into a garland. I also took out all my pumpkin scented candles. And that's pretty much it! I don't go too crazy when I decorate for the holidays but if you have any other simple but cute decorations tips let me know.

Korean Beauty Haul ♥ Jolse Shop Review

Jolse Korean Beauty Haul
When I first went to the Jolse site I knew I had to order from them because they provide FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING! Free shipping is the way to my heart! I've ordered from many Korean beauty websites (including Ebay). This is my first time time ordering from Jolse so not only am I going to show you what I got but I'm also going to share my experience shopping from Jolse.

Jolse Korean Beauty Haul
Etude House Drawing Eye Brow
I was in need of a new eyebrow pencil so I decided to order the Etude House Drawing Eye Brow pencil again. I've tried this before and loved it so I decided to order a new one. This apparently is one of the best brow pencils in South Korea!

The Saem Cover Perfection Ideal Concealer Duo
This is the only new product that I ordered. I also needed a new concealer so I decided to go with this one by The Saem. I've seen a few Korean beauty Youtubers use this one in their videos so I decided to give this one a shot.

COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pad
At the time I placed my order I was running low on my COSRX pimple pads so I decided to go ahead and order a pack. This is my first time getting them in this packaging though. The pads look like whats on top of the box (they are not that big tho!). This would be my third container! Check out my review to see why I love them so much.

Jolse Korean Beauty Haul
Along with my order I got a COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch and blotting sheets by Jolse. I was pretty surprise to see these two freebies, especially the pimple patches! I've heard amazing reviews on these patches so I cannot wait to test them.

Jolse Korean Beauty Haul
These are all the samples that I received with my order. I love the amount of extras Jolse provided with my order.

Jolse Shop Review
Ordered: 9-15-16
Shipped: 9-27-16
Received: 10-01-16 

My experience
I decided to place my order with Jolse because they provide free shipping worldwide and they offer tons of Korean beauty brands and products. Before I ordered I read tons of shop review from other bloggers who ordered from Jolse in the past. A lot of them said that they received their orders in less then 2 weeks. I unfortunately wasn't so lucky. My order took over 2 weeks to arrive! What annoyed me the most was that it took my order so long to ship. I only ordered three items, imagine how long it would've taken if I placed a huge order! Even after my order was shipped the tracking number that was provided was never updated until a day before the package arrived at my doorstep.

Will I order from them?
Yes! Despite the long waiting time I would still order from Jolse again. Next time I will order items that I can't get easily in the US though.

Have you ever ordered from Jolse before?

Memebox Haul ♥ Mask & Study Unboxing

Memebox Haul
Are you tired of my Memebox hauls yet? I hope not because I have another one for you today! I was running low on sheet masks so it was time to buy some Memebox bundles. Let's see what I bought from Memebox this time!

Memebox Haul
"Buried in your studies? This smart box will give your skin a much-needed break from those late night cram sessions. It's full of skin-loving sheet masks you can slap on while you power nap (or read) and cute, practical school supplies you can never have enough of. Whether you're studying hard or hardly studying, fighting!"

The Mask and Study Box contains 13 sheet masks, a pencil case, a notebook, a notebook and a pen. I decided to get this box because of all the sheet masks (obviously) and because this box contains stationery goodies! If you are interested in this box I would highly recommend you to go ahead and buy it because Memebox never restock the same box twice.

Memebox Haul
It's Skin Cream Masks
"Let your overworked skin soak in all the creamy goodness of It's Skin biocellulose masks."

Berrisom Real Jeju Skin Gel Masks
"Berrisom's gel masks are filled with 8 natural ingredients from the pristine island of Jeju and nourish skin back to youthful health."

Elensilia Intracell Masks
"Elensilia's sheet masks are enriched with Glycosaminoglycans that speed up cell regeneration. Extra points for brightening and firming, too!"

Bonvivant That Day Masks
"Bonvivant's THAT Day masks are infused with 70% Witch Hazel and a jelly essence that battles period-related skin issues. The only thing worse than studying is PMSing while studying."

Memebox Haul
This is the study portion of the Mask and Study Box. There is a pink rubbery pencil case with a mint colored zipper, a Memebox notebook with beauty products printed all over, a Memebox notepad and orange pen.

Memebox Haul
Memebox also had the Innisfree Mask Bundle Set available so I picked up one of those too. Innisfree masks are great and affordable. They also had a free Botanical Pure Mask Pack in Sodium Hyaluronate + Lotus which I had to add to my cart because it's a free sheet mask! By the way, have you seen my review on all the Bonvivant Botanical masks?

Halloween Sneak Peek ♥ The Weekend Guide #27

The Weekend Guide
I'm super excited today because I am finally sharing pictures of some of the items that I will be selling in the MooeyAndFriends shop!

Since we're currently in October my first collection is a Autumn and Halloween inspired collection that consists of six different items. There will be pins, brooches, key chains and pinatas in this collection. I will be dedicating a whole post on the MooeyAndFriends reopening with better pictures of each item when my shop relaunches.

When am I going to open my shop? Well, I'm still not sure. I'm actually waiting for some Halloween shipping supplies that I ordered to arrive. I also need to add the finishing touches to a few of the other items. However, I am aiming for a shop opening next week! If you want to know exactly when follow me on twitter for shop news. You can also sign up on Etsy to be notification when my shop opens.

What's your favorite item?
