I was inspired by other bloggers and decided to do a sort of snapshot of my life right now, what I'm wearing, what I'm reading, what I bought lately etc.

On my nails:

I finally found a Sally's Beauty in my town so I went a little polish crazy, I normally never buy this much polish in a month or even in a year! I got the regular Orly stuff and Seche Vite at Sally's,the OPI and Essie Matte about you at a Trade Secrets Store and the Fantasy Makers and Orly Color Blast at a Rexall Pharmacy. 

Wet n' Wild Fantasy Makers in Black Magic and Creepy Pumpkin

 Orly Love Each Other, Star Spangled and poor little Galaxy FX Stone Cold didn't make it to the group picture so he gets his own picture.

  Orly Color Blast in Total Eclipse of the Heart, I believe this is their new drugstore brand for Canada, maybe to compete with Opi's Nicole brand?

I took a few pictures to show the duochrome and these were the best 2, it's such a fantastic shifter! It reminds me a lot of Sally's Hansen's Nail Prism in Turquoise Opal.

Sorry about the messy nails I hadn't done clean-up yet. Also I'm wearing Essie's Matte About You on my ring finger as a subtle accent.

I forgot to picture the OPI but it's just a blackened purple, very lovely though. If anyone wants a swatch I'll post one up.


With school started I don't have time to do much with make-up, usually it's slap on some eyeliner and mascara and I'm off to catch the bus. But when I have a bit more time I've been reaching for Fyrinnae, as I've mentioned before I'm doing a Fyrinnae challenge, and I'm trying to use all of my samples at least once each.

I'm also VERY excited about their upcoming collection!! New colours, yay!



Through a Heartsy deal I recently purchased some things from Kuma Crafts
I'm loving my purchase, especially this cute little geeky kitty.
I'll be reviewing the shop soon.


I'm starting on my Halloween costume and I ordered these cute little horns from MetalWaterStudio
I'll be reviewing these as soon as I get to test them out.


I love fall and fall scents so of course I reach for them as soon as the weather cools down. These are my favorites.

I'm using these two perfumes almost daily nowadays:
Samhain from Haus of Gloi and Falling Leaves from OHWTO

I'm scenting my house with Fireside from Bath & Body works, I love the smell of this candle SO much!

What I'm reading:

On my Kindle: I'm almost done this book and I am loving it very much. It's a typical robot apocalypse story but the way it is delivered is great.
If you love to read add me as a friend on my Goodreads account.

 The not so fun reading stuff is all my school textbooks! I'm also reading some random plays for my Comedy & Satire class, those are much more interesting.

I'm also loving my cute little agenda, I love the feel of the leather cover. It's a good size for me and each day is split into half hour sections. I got it at chapters, they are expensive but if you can wait until January is started they usually slash the prices on these.

 Now that school is settled I can get back into a work-out routine and I'll be starting NRLFW on Monday, I'm very excited :) I've heard a lot of good things from people who have used this book, so I'm hoping to see good results, and maybe lose that annoying last 15lbs.

What I'm wearing:

This section isn't very exciting unfortunately lol! I love to dress up but when I'm in school I mostly wear jeans or dress pants and t-shirts.

I get most of my t-shirts from Woot!. This website posts a new shirt every day, and that shirt is then only available for 24 hours at 10$ (plus 5$ shipping if you are outside of the US) after that they stick around for a little bit at 15$ until they are reckoned. I LOVE this website, I've gotten quite a few fantastic shirts from them. Their customer service is also really great, I have never had a problem with them.

Let me know if you guys liked this post and if you would like to see more of them in the future, or maybe you would like to see me do one of these sections more often, let me know in the comments!

Quick EOTD Dressed to Kill in Leopard Print

I LOVED this look, I really can't wait for the weather to cooperate so I can get nice eye pictures again! I only snapped a few pictures because I was in a rush to get to class sorry! I really didn't do justice to how gorgeous and smoky this look was!

Part of my Fyrinnae challenge! This challenge is also allowing me to become better at using my Fyrinnae stuff, I always had a bit of a harder time working with their shadows. However this challenge is giving me the practice I need, my blending is getting much better :)

Sorry about my still wet and scraggly hair :P I also need to redye soon.

Primer: UDPP

EOTD Chaotic Fyre

I wore this today to go out and hang with a friend :) Sorry about the ugly pimple I don't have photoshop on my computer :P

This is part of my Fyrinnae challenge, I have almost all the colours in minis and I haven't even used most of them besides swatching. So I'm challenging myself to use all of my minis at least once and taking pictures of the looks I make. It will also help me decide if I want any of them in full size :) I really wanted Parental Advisory in full size, but it's been removed from the site :(

With flash the blue sparkles show up more than the pink and purple ones.

What I used:

Primer: Urban Decay Primer Potion
Base: Nyx Black Bean JEP
Highlight: Fyrinnae Moon Child
Lid: Fyrinnae Fyre & Ice
Crease: Hi-Fi Punk Rocker
Upper Crease: Fyrinnae Chaotic Evil
Lower lashline: Maybelline pencil liner in black
Mascara: Wet n' Wild Mega Lash

Lips: For Strange Women lip balm in Pine Cone

Cheeks: Bare
Face: Bare
