My Favorite Creepy Book Picks!

Last year I wrote a post in October showing you my favorite creepy books that are perfect for the month of Halloween. These picks are still my favorite ones, so I thought I would re-post it for those who may have missed it. Enjoy!

Creepy Fav Books-1

The month of October means Halloween, cooler weather and more darkness. And all that means it’s the perfect time to bust out with some creepy reading material, yes?

If you follow me on any of my various social media feeds, especially Goodreads, you know I am an avid reader. I have a very vast actual and virtual book collection and have a list a mile long of books I want to read.

Some of my favorite dark and creepy books are older, like Stephen King novels, but many are ones that have come out in recent years. I am finding ever since Gillian Flynn and Tana French came out, there is a whole new genre of disturbing novels by female writers. And I am loving this!

Boscia Tsubaki Face Cleansing Review

Boscia Tsubaki

I’ve been having a love affair as of late with cleansing oils, so the last time I was at Sephora I decided to pick up the Boscia Tsubaki Cleansing Oil-Gel and the Tsubaki Oil-Infused Exfoliating Powder. And the fact that they were sold in the cutest boxes covered with pink flowers certainly didn’t deter me from wanting them.

So what the heck is Tsubaki oil? It’s Camellia oil, which is supposed to help firm hydrate and protect against free-radical damage. Both of these products are preservative-free, artificial fragrance and color-free, gluten-free and ethanol alcohol-free.

Contrary Polish Last Leaves: November 2014 A Box, Indied

Contrary Polish Last Leaves

Contrary Polish Last Leaves is a beautiful contribution to the theme “A Cornucopia of Color” for November’s A Box, Indied, which launches October 26th.

This polish screams AUTUMN to me and I like it that way. I am such a sucker for a great brown nail shade. I know there are so many people who dislike brown polish but I am convinced it’s because they haven’t found the best ones. This is one to keep in mind!

Jordana Playful Pastels Swatches and Review

Jordana Playful Pastels

The Jordana Playful Pastels collection looks like it belongs in April, but in fact, it’s new for fall!

This is a limited edition collection featuring six pastel cremes. I actually think it’s kind of a nice refresher from all the dark, shimmery shades I’ve been seeing a lot of lately.

As far as formula, it kind of varied depending on the shade. Some of them were more like opaque cremes while a couple were on the more sheer, uneven side. Most of these were three coats over a ridge-filling base coat.

Bodycology Charmed Apple and Toasted Sugar for Fall 2014

Bodycology Charmed Apple and Toasted Sugar

It’s fall so it’s officially time to bust out all those delicious fall scents I know you love. You can do that with the new Bodycology Charmed Apple and Toasted Sugar products, which just came out.

Interesting sidenote about me. Until a few years ago I really despised anything even remotely “spiced” or autumn-scented. I HATED it. I think I started liking it when I tried out some of the Fortune Cookie Soap fall stuff. And now I really like a lot of it!

The Charmed Apple collection includes a Foaming Body Wash, Fragrance Mist, and Nourishing Body Cream. Toasted Sugar comes in a Foaming Body Wash, Fragrance Mist, Exfoliating Sugar Scrub, Moisturizing Body Lotion and Moisturizing Body Cream. And everything is under $7.00!
