Hello there my lovelies! If you’re in the states, Happy Thanksgiving! I’ve just got done preparing a lot of food and treats and finally took a break to upload this. It’s so nice when you can take a break in between peeling potatoes and frosting a cheesecake. I wanted to share with you the makeup I’ve worn this month!
I’ve gone for a lot of natural brown colors this month with hints of gold here and there. I think it’s appropriate for November since next month will probably decked out in holiday goodness.
Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Palette- I’ve actually been using this every single day for over two weeks. Just look at those colors, gorgeous and still very natural for day time!
Luxie Eyeshadow, Color No. 290- I swatched this color all the way to the left of the colors from the palette so you can see how it looks on the skin. It’s a beautiful red-toned brown which is perfect for in your crease or under the eye. It’s a very normal looking brown, but it’s a great staple and I love it!
Essie Polish in “Summit of Style”- I actually bought this at Ocean State Job Lot and got an incredible price, so check there if you ever want cheap Essie! This gave an amazing gold foil effect that I love so much. I think it’s a great color of fall and a good transition for holiday nail art.
Seche Top Coat- I’m just not sure what I used before this. No matter what polish I put on, this keeps it in place without any chips. I think this time of year is hard as it gets cold and we are hard on our brittle nails (ew). But I keep repurchasing this and honestly will never use anything else. A wonderful product for any Christmas nail art that you want to save. Highly recommend that you buy this, or ask for it for Christmas!
What makeup/beauty products have you been using in November? Let me know!
If you’re looking for inspiration for fall, for the upcoming holidays, or even just an escape from your everyday life, you can check out my digital magazine. I worked so hard on this and I’m so pleased with the result. The magazine is all about Autumn (which I realize is a little late, but I think it’ll still be exciting.) Inside are illustrations, writing, and photography to help spark something in you. I think this would be perfect for curling up with your tablet or iPad and chilling out for awhile and looking through. Hopefully you feel as cozy reading it as I was making it.
Also, all work in the magazine are mine. There is a written entry and photograph from Bhavika and the link to her blog is in the zine to check out more of her awesome work. I was so happy that anyone submitted anything, and her writing went perfectly with the rest of the material. If you are hanging out today and preparing for Thanksgiving, this might be the perfect thing to help you unwind! Mostly this was just for fun to put all of my work in one place, so I’m happy I can even publish it at all. I’m excited to see what all of you think!

I’ve been seriously relaxing all weekend! At school, the project and midterms have been crazy and I was so happy to come home and chill out. I’ve used a lot of Lush and read a lot of books. I’ve also had my fair share of peppermint hot chocolate. I think recharging on the weekends is a great way to get a pep in your step for the week ahead. Not only is my magazine launching, but I have projects for class and Thanksgiving!
I got this amazing tea from the Yankee Candle Factory store in Deerfield and it’s my favorite tea EVER. It’s got chocolate and peppermint, and I added a bit of creamer that was flavored of Crème Brûlée. It was amazing.
I’m sorry about the quality of the pictures for my outfit. I left my tripod at school and had to set me camera on a shelf. The lighting was not ideal. But you get the idea! I liked the chambray-on denim- on paisley. It seemed like a cool combination with a cozy winter coat on top.
Shirt- Thrift Store
Scarf- Urban Outfitters
Sunglasses- Kate Spade
How has your weekend been? Let me know!
Quite an exiting title, isn’t it? I can’t believe I am almost ready to realize my first online magazine.
If you didn’t know already, I’ve been drawing and painting and writing, and then putting that collection of things into an online magazine. It isn’t anything fancy and I’m not making money off of it, but it’s been creatively exciting! It is all about Autumn, which is my favorite season of all time.
I had submissions open for the magazine, but they are officially closed. The launch of the digital zine will be the day before Thanksgiving, which is Wednesday, November 25th. I think this is the perfect day to read it and be cozy while having time off for Thanksgiving. In between making yummy meals, you can flip through and hopefully be inspired.
I am finishing everything for the zine in the time until it launches, and I’m so excited to share it with you.
I am so freaking excited to finally get this post up! I’m aware of the fact that it’s just a boring outfit post like usual, but I’ve been trying to upload this for about a week.
To be fair, I’ve been very busy and had other posts that had to go up more than this one, and then yesterday and had literally no time to edit these pictures. But as I sat down this morning to edit them, I was overcome by melancholy at the beautiful grey images in front of me. Right now it’s a gorgeous sunny day, no rain or clouds in sight. But when I took these last week, we were having a rainy spell, and the pictures really reflect that in their tone. Admittedly, I enjoy rainy and overcast days to sunny days, in real life and in photographs. This brought me back to a few days ago when I was living in my raincoat and piling on the blankets.
My raincoat is a hand-me-down via my best friend from J.crew.
The striped shirt is from American Eagle (so soft!!!).
My jeans are my trusted grey jeans from Target. Honestly, the best jeans ever.
Not pictured, but I wore white converse with this.
I also wore this grey hat from Target (my new favorite) and it kept the cold, wet air from swirling into my hair and creating a mess.
I’ll be posting soon, hopefully on time and with holiday themes!
I’m at it again on Polyvore. Winter florals have been my favorite thing lately because they are feminine with a darker edge. This is how I would style a Valentino dress if I was ever lucky enough to have one.
Also, how cute is this bag?! The cat is adorable. I want this so badly!
I wanted to let you know that the deadline for submissions to my digital magazine will be a week from today on Friday, November 20th.
Submissions can be artwork, photography, writing pieces, poetry, or even recipes and DIY’s.
I’m hoping to get the magazine ready before Thanksgiving. I hope you enjoy it!
To send me things for the magazine, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I can’t wait to make the magazine!
