Halloween haul.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. As a kid, I always went all out. Yet as an adult, I’ve found that I’ve become abysmally lazy when it comes to getting my act together each October. But this year is going to be different. This year, I’m going to rock it. Literally. I’ve got a party coming up soon, and I’ve decided to go as a punk rocker!

My friend and awesome hair stylist Paris loaned me some great wardrobe pieces for the costume…

…and I’ve just returned from a very successful trip to CVS, where I loaded up on some Halloween make up necessities (black and red eye makeup, false lashes, etc.), as well as some staple beauty items. Oh, and look at the savings!

I saved almost $20! And yes, I bought a bracelet from the drugstore.

I’ll head to Party City later this week to get some temporary tattoos and a fake nose ring. I seriously can’t wait to put it all together. I’ve been watching punk rock makeup tutorials on YouTube, and I’m just getting really psyched!

Here’s to a budget-friendly Halloween! 🙂

Long overdue update.

Well, it’s been a while. School started and I got very, very busy.

Here are a few pics of my classroom. Note the purple rug from IKEA…very frugal buy at a mere $25!

The sets of plastic drawers were cheap yard sale buys!

Though I have been pretty occupied, I’ve manage to procure a couple of cool things over the past few weeks…

Just a couple of bucks for blue and white. Gets me every time.

Hoping to go on a thrifting adventure soon. Stay tuned. 🙂
