Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!!

One of my favorite beauty bloggers/Youtubers Amarixe posts a

 questionnaire every Monday so I thought this would be a great post

 for Halloween!

Leave your responses below or post on your blog so I can

read them!

1) Mood

exhausted. it has been an very tiring/emotionally exhausting day

2) When was the last time you carved a pumpkin?

o goodness probably when I was 10 or 11

3) What is your favorite Halloween candy?

Nonchocolate: candy corn

Chocolate: Butterfingers

4) What is your favorite Halloween memory?

Gonna have to say Halloween party sophomore year. I dressed up

as the ever popular Sarah Palin and definitely had a

fun time dancing the night away!

5) Do you believe in ghosts/spirits?

I definitely believe that loved ones we have lost are watching over

and at times are right there with us, but I don't believe

 in the spooky ghost types.

6) Were you allowed to dress up at school for Halloween as a kid?

I'm almost sure we were allowed in elementary school, but not in

middle/high school since I went to a private Christian school.

7) Did you trick-or-treat as a kid? At what age did you stop?

Of COURSE I did!! My mom made me quit at 13 but I still went

around with my little brother and his friends so a couple years I

still got candy! :)

8) What is your favorite Halloween movie?

I am NOT a fan of scary movies! I can't even think of a movie that I

like that has anything to do with Halloween!

9) Did you dress up for Halloween this year? If so, as what?

I was invited to a Halloween party/downtown at the VERY last

 minute (like that afternoon) so I played it safe and went as a

Carolina football player!

10) Weekly goals

Call Time Warner to fix bill

Clean apartment since whole family could potentially be coming

over Saturday!

Start studying for next week's plant test :/

Top 5 Tuesday: Purfume

In an attempt to get back into blogging, I've decided to link up with Rachel at Just Peachy for Top 5 Tuesday. This week's theme was perfumes, and this way more tough than I thought it would be since I'm obsessed with all things beauty! Nevertheless I was able to come up with the 5 scents that will always have a spot in my collection. Let me know if you link up as well...I would love to read your top 5!

Just Peachy

1. Viva la Juicy by Juicy Couture
I was on a mission to buy another perfume just for the sake of buying when I came across this AMAZING scent! I was in Kohls and spritzed this on my wrist and immediately fell in love. As I was shopping the rest of the day I couldn't stop smelling my wrist!! So I had to go back and get it! I got the smaller bottle and used up almost half in the first month that I had it. I don't wear perfume everyday (see favorite body sprays next) but when I do this is the first one I grab!
2. Bath and Body Work Twilight Woods
When I initially smelled this scent in the store I was not a fan. But one balmy Saturday in the South my friends and I were sitting in Williams-Brice getting ready to watch out Gamecocks play, when my friend whipped this out of her purse and sprayed it all around us. I was in love! Its definitely a more sensual scent but since it's in the body spray form it is light enough to be wore during the day. I have the mini version in my purse at all times and spray it a couple times if I rushed out the door without a fragrance or need a refresher throughout the day. 

3. Bath and Body Works White Citrus
This was my signature scent this summer! I had a coupon for a free Signature B&BW item and my mom suggested this scent. I usually go for more girly/florally scents so something fruity was a bit of stretch, but I used over half of the full-sized bottle in about 3 months! While it is more of a summer scent, I still find myself reaching for it when I need an energizing pick-me-up. 

4. The Beat by Burberry
This was my perfume discovery last summer! I got this scent as a sample when I ordered from Sephora and couldn't help but wear it everyday. Like I said I tend to gravitate towards girly scents, so this one caught me by surprise! It almost smells uni-sex but it has just the little something that makes it girl-oriented (they do have a men's version). Next time you're in the store definitely give this one a sniff!

5. Very Hollywood by Michael Kors
And were back to the girly scents! I only have this one in a rollerball but I still love it! If you're uncertain about a scent I definitely recommend grabbing it in a rollerball and seeing how you like it before splurging on a full bottle. Plus they're really easy to carry around in your purse if you don't feel like hauling around a mini body spray. ANYWAYS...this scent is SUPER girly and floral smelling! Some say its a scent more suitable for nighttime, but I think it's perfectly fine for daytime as long as you don't get too heavy handed! Plus the bottle is so pretty (and we all know thats half the reason we buy perfume!)

Here's hoping I'm back to a more scheduled posting!
