Hi everyone, another month is quickly coming to an end and I’m just catching up on my blog now! For starters, hope everyone on the east coast is safe and sound…thank you everyone who has reached out to me. I am thankfully okay and have not faced any hardships (I still have power which gives me an opportunity to catch up on my blog now)! My prayers go out to those who are in need.
This month I was away for about a week in Arizona to visit my fabulous aunt to see Madonna in Phoenix for her MDNA Tour. It was my third time seeing Madonna in concert and boy does she know how to put on a show! I admire her greatly and will continue to support her!
With my aunt before the Madonna concert. I decided to wear all black, specifically a black sequin crop top for a little bling. I’m wearing purple lipstick…MAC Violetta, love it for the fall and especially for big events!
I love this image of Madonna. Anyone who says she still doesn’t have it going on may need their eyes examined! Seriously, watching her show made me think that there is NO EXCUSE for anyone (especially someone my age) to not be in shape…she’s got over 20 years on me and still looks HOT. Can we say #fitnessinspiration ?!
The many looks of Madonna throughout her MDNA Tour.
This past weekend, my wonderful boyfriend took me to a Pumpkin Carve event in Pennsylvania. It was amazing to see all the artistic pumpkin carvings contributed throughout the community!
I really appreciate art in all forms. This is amazing, I love talent when I see it!
One of my favorite pumpkin creations was this snowman pumpkin.
Pretty, pretty pumpkins everywhere!
I also went to a Halloween party over the weekend before the hurricane hit New Jersey! Last year at this time of year we were faced with a tremendous amount of snow which prevented me to celebrate Halloween this year but I made up for it this year!
I kept the makeup festive with red lipstick and double stacked lashes, one pair had red feathers on the end (purchased at Claire’s) which added a nice stylish touch. I could have gone crazier with the makeup and make it more theatrical but at the end of the day, I want to look beautiful so it’s still more of a beauty look rather than too avant garde. Plus the headpiece is more of the focal point so I didn’t want the makeup to be too conflicting and ostentatious.
In case you are wondering, I’m dressed up as the Queen of Hearts. I literally put together this costume the day before and in less than an hour before the party. This was the FIRST year I really wasn’t sure what I wanted to be! (FYI, I typically know a year in advance what I want to dress up as, so this was a very last minute decision on my part). I created the headpiece myself. I took a devils horn headband…ripped off one of the horns and left the other horn as a back holder for the cards. Using a glue gun, I glued the four queen cards together and then to the back of the horn. I guess queens typically wear crowns, but I wanted to emphasize I was the Queen of Hearts, not just any old queen! ;)
With my favorite pinup girl Jenn, who hosted an amazing Halloween Party! :)
[Hope everyone had a great month! Any cool costumes this year?]
