Doesn’t have to be beauty 😉

I’m doing a haunted hotel theme this year and I purchased the Crematorium sign from Joann’s for my foyer. I think it’ll go rather nice with the vintage haunted hotel thing I’m doing this year. Yeah, that wasn’t beauty related sorry….!

Happy pre-Halloween!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    I just treated myself to the NARS Afterglow eyeshadow palette after seeing your post yesterday! I’ll hold back on these purchases for now 😉

    Surprised that Sephora got away with those stacks! They look identical to the Kaja ones
