20 Movies And TV Shows To Get You In The Halloween Spirit


Halloween is just around the corner! Nothing gets me more in the mood to celebrate the holiday, or just the fall season in general, than watching a themed movie or binge watching a spooky show. I've gathered up a few of my favorite ones in the graphic above with all the movies and then the three Halloween-ish shows at the end. They aren't in a particular order of importance except for Hocus Pocus, because that will always be my favorite!

SkinClearing Fall Makeup With Neutrogena

Although fall is definitely one of my favorite seasons (second to winter!), over the years I've also come to realize that the season tends to bring on more responsibilities and with that a bit more stress than summer. In previous years the stress would come from starting up school again, but now that I've graduated stress is starting to poke its head in from other areas in my life. Not only am I dealing with all the stress from the events from the last few months, but I also have the added responsibility of looking for a job. Another thing that I associate with fall is the changing of my makeup routine. With the change in weather, my skin becomes a bit dryer, but also subtly becomes lighter, so sometimes I need to pick out a new shade. A recent find of mine that covers both of these shifts is Neutrogena® SkinClearing® Makeup which covers up and helps prevent breakouts while you wear it, perfect for those who experience stress breakouts like I do! I've created a whole makeup look for fall with this line as a base and am loving how these products have a dual use.

What To Do When You Lose A Parent


I'm honestly not even sure how to really start with this post. If you've been following along with my blog, you have probably noticed I haven't posted much in the past week or so on here or on any of my social channels. Some of you are aware of what has been going on with me and my family, but for the most part I had decided to keep things quiet until I was really ready to talk about things. I wasn't sure that I would ever be ready to talk about things, however I always like to keep my blog an honest place. I guess I will start this off by explaining what exactly has been happening in my life, bare with me as I'm not sure if there's really a right way to go about this. Knowing how difficult these past few months have been for me, I also want to do my best to help others if they unfortunately fall into a similar situation and I figured blogging about it honestly would be the most helpful.
