Halloween Illustration

What I like about Halloween is that you get to dress up and get to be someone other than yourself for a day, could be someone you admire like BeyoncĂ© or a Zombie from your favorite TV show The Walking Dead or anything you desire. Also, the part where you get together with family and have a fun afternoon, trick or treating with the little ones while us adults get to be young again lol… So inspired by Halloween I came up with this Illustration, hope you all have a happy, fun and safe Halloween enjoy!!

Halloween Inspired Nails

Happy Monday everyone, hope you all had an amazing weekend. My weekend was pretty relaxing, just working on some posts, illustrations and some house work as well. If you guys haven't noticed, I removed the Blog News tab because I didn't feel it was really beneficial to the blog as my schedule changes so much all the time because of my full time job and home duties. So I don’t always have time to post as much as I would like to. I do love to read all your blog posts so I will just re-tweet all my favorite reads for the week. I will always keep you guys updated as to what I am up too and I thank you all for your support.

Today, I want to share another Mani-Monday Collaboration with my blogger friends Tasha and Donah. This time its Halloween themed in celebration of the spooky day on Friday. I didn't do anything crazy, I just used Color Club Nail polish in Shabby Drab that I bought at Harmon and some really cute Kiss Halloween nail tattoos that I got in my gift bag at a beauty press event. To seal everything together I used Orly top 2 bottom clear polish.

I still haven’t decided what I am going to be for Halloween but I am glad I don’t have to worry about my nails which I have gotten some attention today lol… I kind of like these tattoo nail designs, they are pretty cute and pretty easy to apply. If you’re looking for any of these Kiss nail tattoos check CVS, Harmon, Duane Reade, Walgreen’s, or Rite Aid they might have them available there.

What is your favorite part of Halloween? How do you celebrate it?

Glamglow Youthmud Mask Review

Not too long ago, I started exploring masks, boy I was missing all the fun. i I have tried a few and have yet to try out more. Masks are not only good for your skin but they can be fun and super funny at times, especially if you have one on and your hubby comes home from work and sees you. That funny face he puts is hilarious. Not to mention they can be so relaxing and smoothing especially on days were you feel a bit stressed or you just want to have a day to yourself.

In the past few months, I have been using Glamglow Youthmud Mask. Actually this is my second one, since the bottle is so small I had to purchase another one for $19 at Sephora. The full size one would probably last me longer but I can’t afford to waste $69 so the small one will do for now.

What it’s supposed to do: What it is: This mud mask can be used by women or men and it is supposed to leave your skin noticeably radiant and glowing. It is supposed to work with the body's natural moisturizing collagen to provide gentle resurfacing exfoliation and helps to leave skin smoother, brighter, and softer. While providing tighter skin texture and tighter pores, it provides a more youthful appearance and absorbs impurities without removing natural oils. This mask is also parabens, sulfates and phthalates free which it a plus. (Source Sephora & Glamglow Websites)

How I use it: I use this mask twice a week and I start by washing my face until its super clean. Then I pat dry my face with a clean towel and then I apply the mask evenly or at least try to apply evenly and then wait 10 minutes or until it’s all dried up. Then I rinse with warm water to make it easier to come off and then pat dry my face.

My thoughts: Well you all know I have oily combination skin and I always aim to try products that are good for my skin type so this was a good choice. The mask itself has a muddy color, duh mud mask and some green tea leaf pieces inside witch can make applying the mask a bit messy but I am ok with it. It does have a smell to it that it’s a bit hard to describe but it doesn’t bother me at all. if you are big on smells I suggest you smell it at the store just in case. When applying the mask you feel a tingling sensation which to me that means its working its magic. After its dry, I can see the oils and dirt that comes out of the pores which I find a bit fascinating lol… and after rinsing it off, I love how fresh and soft my face feels and how clear my skin complexion looks. This mask has also help keep blackheads on my nose away and when I get acne during that time of the month it minimizes all irritation and acne size which to me that amazing.

Have you used any of the Glamglow Masks if so which ones and what where your thoughts?
