Review & Swatches: Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Palette

Hey guys! How’s it going? How was your weekend? Do anything fun?

Well guess what I have for you guys today… an eye palette review! What? I know. I’ve been on that palette no-buy, but right at the end of last year (literally 2 days before the end of the year), I caved and picked up a new palette. In my defense, I had a gift card I got for Christmas, so it was no money out of my pocket.

What palette was it? The Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions. I know, I am such a hypocrite because I actually anti-hauled this brand earlier this year. I have no idea what made me suddenly want to get this. Seriously. It wasn’t even on my radar. I had no idea this palette even existed until I saw it at Sephora that night when I was shopping. I was just looking and looking and looking around the store trying to find anything new that caught my eye to blow my gift card on… and this did. Go fig.

So, grab yourself a beverage and let’s get going!

Beauty Sponge Review: Earth Theraputics & Danielle Creations

Hey guys! How was your weekend? Do anything fun?

Friday night, I was invited by Busch Gardens Tampa to attend opening night of their Howl-O-Scream Halloween haunt event. This was my 7th year attending Howl-O-Scream and once again, it did not disappoint. I’m weirdly in the middle with Halloween stuff. I love a good scare, but I don’t do well with a lot of gore. So I don’t do the majority of the houses, but I do get my scares in from the scare zones around the park and the bands of roaming monsters. My friend who goes with me to these events is in the same boat as I am, so she’s the perfect companion to have along. We were happy to see the park brought back the popular zombie bumper cars again (seriously… zombies are doing the bumper cars with you and it’s hysterical) and also expanded it by filling random empty seats with monsters on the roller coasters! We got to ride the Cheetah Hunt coaster with a zombie in the row behind us, which was so awesome.

You can check out my Periscope of the zombie bumper cars here:

It was a seriously awesome night and major thanks to Busch Gardens Tampa for inviting me out again. If you’re in the central Florida area, I highly recommend giving Howl-O-Scream a try if you like Halloween haunt events.

Anyhow, back on topic…
