Halloween with Ella Dean and Beautiful Twists

It’s an ickle early to worry about Halloween but I’ve already been gathering up bits and bobs to decorate my office and house. If you’re a big fan of Halloween you might want to start checking out Ella Dean’s Etsy Shop, Beautiful Twists, as she’s starting to bring out some of her popular Halloween scents.

I’m recommending her now because her little shop gets mighty busy so placing an order early might not be such a bad idea, less wait time when the holiday does hit.

She has 42 items in her Halloween category at the moment but knowing Ella Dean’s creativity level they’ll probably be more by September.

At the moment I’m loving…

Beautiful Twists Halloween Collection 002

Dracula’s Scary Fruity Cereal Room Spray $7.99
Dracula (nickname ‘Vegan Vampire’)…he’s so with the times, he’s become a vegan, taken up yoga, wears blue contacts (that’s so Paris Hilton of him) & even gets his teeth whitened (sounds like he’s really into his looks, huh?) Dracula also loves fruity cereal & eating salads at midnight.

Beautiful Twists Halloween 002

Beautiful Twists Halloween Collection 001

Magical Mouse Kisses Spell Whitney the Witch’s Vegan Witch Body Mist $7.99
Whitney the Witch is a marvelous cook & fashion designer. She has two lines called ‘Broomstick Designs’ & ‘Woven Spider Web Designs (no spiders were harmed in the process, she loves them).’ She got the fashion designer itch, when she decided there has to be a better place to put your wooden spoon when you’re not using it. So Whitney designed a whole line of witch’s hats with pockets in them (she’s wearing one of her own designs). She started to design broomsticks when she figured broomsticks could be a lot more fun, unique & represent each witch’s own personality. If you do ever eat over at Whitney’s house be careful of the soup, she has been known to put spells in them!!

If you’re curious about Ella Dean and her weird and wacky Etsy shop you can click here and here for a few reviews I’ve done in the past or check the Etsy Musings archive!

Happy early Halloween, it’s never to early to start celebrating as far as I’m concerned!

An off topic P.S.

I decorate my house for every holiday but Halloween is probably the biggest…just a note Terry’s Village and $14.99 Collections have their Halloween treasures up. It’s a great place to start hauling very inexpensive indoor and outdoor decor! I’m not affiliated with these shops, just a recommendation for hauling your ghostly goodies on the cheap! Feel free to share your haunts for great decorations!

the Balm Muppets Palette Cast Your Shadow the Balm and the Beautiful Palette

the Balm Muppet Palette

Heads up chicas! Bit of beauty news for you….

Just a note about the Balm Muppets Palette which is supposed to launch really soon (sometime in September). The palette is limited to 1,000 pieces but no worries if you miss it and you’re not partial to the Muppets because the Balm will release a second palette for the holidays called the Balm and the Beautiful. Different packaging on this palette but all of the same lovely colors from the Muppets/Cast your Shadow Palette.

geoGirl ES Erase Screen Concealer Review, Swatches, Photo

geoGirl ES Erase Screen Concealer 003

People, let me tell you, these old eyes need some serious concealing power because I simply don’t get enough sleep and the baggage under here is enough to take on my European Tour.

But…

Occasionally I like going really light on the concealer particularly when I’ve had eight hours of sleep and just don’t want a ton of makeup on my face.

And right now, that lightweight concealer of choice is from geoGirl, a collection of products that are actually made for tweens but I figure my mentality is that of a tween so I’m safe.

Hard Candy World Balmination Review, Swatches, Photos

Hard Candy World Balmination 002

If lip balms were like an army of zombies I could take over the world with my collection, it would be a World Balmination.

I don’t have an army of zombies but I wish I did, I do have an army of lip balms though and the newest to grace my collection is Hard Candy World Balmination.

Brilliant stuff and a beauty budget pick for you back to schoolers out there.
