October Ipsy

The October Ipsy bag has finally arrived.
My October Ipsy finally made it's way to my door earlier this week. What's ipsy you might be asking? Ipsy is a monthly subscription that for the low price of $10.00 including shipping you can receive 5-6 beauty products. They send everything from hair care products to foot lotions. It's a great way to try out new things without paying the price of a full size product. Plus if you love getting real mail it's a nice little treat in the mailbox each month. Here's what I got this month...
 
1. ECRU New York: Acacia Protein BB Cream for Hair.
Lately Ipsy has been sending me one hair care item in each bag. While this product might be nice, I've got a few others to try first. I've been using the full size item they sent me a few months ago and I'm sticking with it. This does have a great smell to it.
 
2. Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser.
I had never heard of this brand but I'm excited to try it! The smell is amazing. It smells like fresh strawberries and seems to have good texture. I've read some reviews and everyone says it's great. Since my skin is really sensitive I get nervous about facial items but this one sounds like it could be a winner.
 
3. Noyah Lipstick: Deeply in Mauve shade.
 
There is absolutely nothing positive I could say about this lipstick. The packaging for the sample was cheap. The color was way to dark for my skin tone AND the fact that I do not wear lipstick and that I've told IPSY this every month they have sent me a lip product. When I see the lip products I get sad. It's a waste!
 
4. Figs & Rouge Hand Cream in Mango Mandarin.
This was one of two full size products that came in my bag. It's amazing. The smell is not too strong which I like and it feels like you are rubbing butter onto your hands. It makes them feel so soft! I'm going to have to get my mom some of this!
 
5. Jesse's Girl Eye Shadow in Graphite Frost.
This was the second full size product in my bag. I love eye shadows. I mean really. I have a small addiction to eye shadow. I had honestly never heard of the brand but it's nice. The packaging was appealing and it felt expensive. I wasn't sold on the color that I got but it's nice. I'm going to check them out and look for other colors.
 
Overall, I really liked this months bag!

Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie brings an end to our Halloween themed month so of course it has to be... The Lost Boys.
Michael (Jason Patric) and his younger brother Sam move from Arizona to Santa Clara, California with their recently divorced mother and they have no idea what their in store for. When the boys get bored and start looking around town for entertainment they land at the Boardwalk. They start meeting kids their own age and start getting to know people. When the boys start to notice flyers for missing teens they begin to wonder what's making them go missing. They befriend two local teens that inform them that the town is full of vampires.

Michael and Sam don't believe them but they find the amount of missing teens odd. Michael sees a girl named Star, at the boardwalk that he finds beautiful but she appears to have a boyfriend who also happens to be the leader of the local gang (Keifer Southerland). When Michael tries to get close to her she warns him to stay away because of the gang. When Michael continues to hang around the gang they initiate him into the gang by drinking a bottle of wine. Or so he thinks it's wine...

Star warns him not to drink the bottle. The next day Michael wakes up and feels different. He doesn't know why the light is bothering him. He doesn't know why he doesn't feel like eating and he doesn't know why he wants to just sleep all day. When night falls he heads to the boardwalk and starts to get a better idea of what is going on....

Watch this classic movie! It's sure to scare you this Halloween!

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly


The Good...
We are literally right around the corner from the holidays. This is by far the best time of the year. I love Thanksgiving and Christmas. I love decorating and baking and wrapping presents. Most of all I love getting to see my mom. I can't wait to see her and watch her open gifts from Santa.
Christmas 2013
 
Speaking of mom's Beezy's mom sold her house and she's camping out in our spare bedroom! We've got a permanent house guest.

The Bad...
Remember the fire that happened at my house last week?
 Yes it was bad. There use to be a wooden privacy fence there.

Well SMUD had the nerve to tell me it was caused by a Mylar balloon getting caught in the line. Um... excuse you? The incident report that was prepared by the experts says you had an explosion at the poll that caused live wires to be on the ground. Liar liar... now your pants are on fire.

The Ugly...
The prices of flights! Have you booked a flight near the holidays lately? Well guess what, the airlines are just waiting to gouge you with the prices. Last year I went to West Virginia for Thanksgiving. We booked the ticket very last minute. When I say last minute I mean within 14 days of the holiday. It's still weeks away and the price right now is 400.00 more than what we paid last year 2 weeks before. It's INSANE! If I had the time, I would slow boat it or train ride it because seriously it's insane the prices they want to charge people to go see loved ones.

Beezy's Birthday Review

The first thing Beezy and I did was celebrate his birthday! Since his birthday fell in the middle of the week, we decided to go out to dinner. Beezy really wanted to go to a place downtown called Ten 22. Since his birthday actually falls on 10/22 it was cute.
 
It was Ten 22's 5th year anniversary so they were offering some great specials. Beezy picked out a calzone that was stuffed to the brim. When he ordered it, we had no idea what was inside. It was being sold as the mystery filled calzone. He's a braver man that me!

I went with a pork chop. It was on top of a jam and potatoes. I'm a lover of pork chops and it was really good. Too bad I had almost filled up on the pulled pork sliders we had as an appetizer.  

At the end of the meal they brought out some chocolate cupcakes with a candle in them to celebrate his birthday.

When we got home we celebrated with Birthday cake (which I made).
I would share pictures of Beezy opening up his gifts but he did it the night before his actual birthday. He couldn't wait to get his hands on the presents and I'm glad to report he enjoyed them all. He got a training mask for running, a subscription to loot crate (a monthly subscription box for guys), a Raiders Christmas sweater and some other fun stuff! This year was a success. Now I've got to start planning next years.
